I was just being pessimistic...

It is just that we have seen the next 2 waves of Sigma 6...seems like there would be some info on 3 3/4.  Add to that the fact that DTC Wave 4 is nowhere to be found.  Just doesn't look good.

There's actually been good news on the 12" front, at least if you're an Adventure Team fan.

Hot Topic just had a great run with their $15 Land Adventurer and they're ordering more.  Urban Outfitters will also be carrying some of the LA figures and will also have an Air Adventurer, probably some time in January.

I heard that, I am pretty excited.  If we can get an Air Adventurer and a Sea Adventurer some time later, that would be great.

The Land Adventurer sold out pretty quick here.  There are 2 Urban Outfitters here but they are over in Dallas, I will have to make the trek though, these are great.  I have not even gotten mine out of the box yet.  It is the only toy I would consider leaving in the box, but I am sure he'll get freed if they release his buddy...

If they made all 3 it would be like having Breaker, Rock N Roll and Snowjob in 12 in form. Sorta.

I've been wondering if they'll do a Sea Adventurer.  I think the GI Joe club still has their exclusive from last year available but I'd have to check the club store.

If somone did a black Commander that would be cool.

The Club's exclusive 12" membership figure this year is a red haired Arctic Adventurer using the foriegn head.  He'll come with a t-shirt and AT boxer shorts.  They're also doing an accessory set which will include a white AT arctic jacket, cargo pants, short white boots, rifle, shoulder holster, revolver and AT dog tag.

This year's convention 12" set is AT themed again and there's a special 25th anniversary RAH set but no details on those are out yet.
