I think the Nightraven is a mix of good and bad...  The bad being it's a fraction of the size of the original Nightraven, making it much more lame, however it has neat features like the drop-down cockpit seating...  I dig that. 

The arctic halftrack is pretty sharp looking I think.  As Joe vehicles go, that's the best one shown...

The snowmobile is no POlar Bear.  Not by a longshot.

The Humvee is...  well, it doesn't look like a Humvee. :)  It looks like a truck is all, so no biggie to me personally.  It just doesn't look like a Humvee is all, which is kind of weird.

Jesse's dead on.  The Night Raven's not bad, but man, that's dinky.  I'd get the Cobra Humvee if it's around $15, but no more than that, and everything else will be a pass.

I'm not too down on the movie itself, but I don't think I'll be picking up any/many of the toys.

Not sure how the 25th line will resume after the movie, but I would have bought at least 6 Night Ravens if they were done the right way- aka vintage w/minor upgrades.  I'm not going the Resolue or movie route figure vehicle or figure wise, but I will buy 1 Raven to satisfy my needs before I find a nice vinty version.  Maybe one StormShadow and one Snakeyes move figs will do it for me before we get back to the good ol stuff.  Up until then - I bid you farewell.

The Night Raven totally reminds me of the fictional MiG from that Clint Eastwood movie, Firefox.  But it almost looks like it's too small for a figure to fit in the cockpit.

And that driver for the Cobra Humvee looks like some kind of modern take on the vintage STUN Driver.

Long shot maybe, but I figured I'd ask anyways.  Did anyone buy multiples of some vehicles and be willing to get rid of the figures for a fair price? In particular, I'm looking for Clutch (Double Clutch), Deep Six (the unarticulated deep dive POS version), Tele Viper, Slip Stream, Lift Ticket and AVAC.  I'm also in need of Dusty from the DVD battle pack.

I've got two VAMPs, so I know I've got an extra Clutch around somewhere (I'm sure I've cannibalized his accessories for other figures, but I'll see if I can track them down too).

Oh, that Pitt sucks.  What's wrong with a traditional playset?  Why they gotta chintz out with this Transforming ****?

Lame.

We got some pics of Breaker from ROC...





So...  Uh, I don't know who that guy is but he ain't the Breaker I know! :)  Still, I think if I were a Joe collector, I'd be mixing these guys in as just different Joes, and avoiding who the movie claims them to be.  Cool looking figure, but I wish the movie were making a greater effort to be more in tune with the toon.

Either way though I think this guy's code name should've been Houdini given his magician mustache and beard.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Pit:  :P





I guess this is the Duck vehicle that didn't make it into the Indy line.  :P
I feel bad for you Joe collectors, because I felt the 25th line could last for two more great years... at least one. Now, I don't think it will return after the flop of this movie line.
