30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 30AC Battle of Hoth Battle Pack?

This BP looks like a cheap and easy way to get some Hoth Rebels for my Snow Troopers to fight. Put me down for one set.

This set doesn't really do anything for me. I have met my goals for Stormies and Scouts in my Imperial Army, and I don't need the Han or Chewie. The figures still look really nice, but I'm not going to pay $20 for one driver. I am, however, very happy for you Imperial Army Builders.

I think it's the angle of the cardboard tank. I'm pretty sure I saw a picture of the back of the box and the tank was a lot easier to make out.

EDIT: Here's a link to a pic of the back of the box

Jesse, I assume you mean the background of the box, which looks to be an overturned and blown up AAT.

I'm reading Black Hawk Down for the second time. Such a well written book with such vivid details and so much stuff to take in.

Yeah, I know. I just wish Hasbro decided to change all weapon colors to black. But, you can't have it all, I guess.

I don't like the green plastic that they are molded in. I don't understand why Hasbro could not have gone with black. I guess the same could apply to the COBRA Officer weapon with the silver plastic. They just stand out way too much and look funny. Regarding the .50 Cal, even though the original Roadblock had one, it's just not a sensible weapon for a soldier to carry around. Even if they could carry it, it's way too bulky, heavy, and powerful. The sculpts are great, though. Sorry about not being specific about that!

Picked up Battle Droids, Han Solo, and Luke Skywalker (Yavin) for $20 at TRU, along with a giant Death Star PEZ dispenser for $1.60.

   So far I've picked up all of the single figures and five-packs, and a second COBRA officer (I hope to get one more). I am loving this line.   
   The only flaws in the figures are the screws in the legs, hands, and weapons. Screws are fine with me, but detract from the overall appearance of the figures. My main gripe about the hands is the lack of a seperate trigger finger, but I fixed the problem with knife and several quick slices.
   Weapons are the worst part of these figures. Some are overall horrible (COBRA rifle), while others look funny and don't make sense(Flint's shotgun, Roadblock's .50 Cal) Scarlett's crossbow and Gung-Ho's Grenade launcher, while very cool, are way too fragile. I'm glad Marauder Inc. will be able to fix my weapon problems. Overall, this is a great line.

Here are my ten votes:

VOTC Han Solo
VOTC Princess Leia
VOTC Lando Calrissian
ROTS Battle Droid 2-pack (with Rust colored variation)
Clone Wars Deluxe Durge (with accessories and paint scheme from basic figure Durge)
The Phantom Menace Graxol Kelvyyn
Saga J'Quille
Saga Tanus Spijek
TSC AT-AT Driver

No 25th Anniversary Joes at my local Target, but I did see the new BBi figure line. The Abrams tank and Black Hawk are must haves, as well as the Humvee which I will most likely get on clearance.

After a long while of being tempted by these products, I am planning on placing an order to outfit my 25th Anniversary GI Joe figures. Here's what I am planning to buy for the Joes:
2 M16a2 Rifles with removable clips
1 Tactical Shotgun
1 UZI with silencer
2 M-4 Carbines
1 M60 Heavy Machine Gun
1 Modular M-4
1 Regular M-4
1 50 Caliber Sniper Rifle
And for the COBRA troops:
1 Dragonov Sniper Rifle
2 M249 SAW Machine Guns
6 AK-47/74 Rifles with removable clips

Can anyone offer opinions on these weapons or recommend other weapons that go nicely with GI Joe figures? Thanks!

Wow Daigo-Bah! Great work! You have really captured the dimly lit atmosphere of Jabba the Hutt's palace. There are way too many details to take in at once. The cracks, scratches and dents in the walls and floor look great. The carbonite block looks like a miniature movie replica. My favorite parts have to be the stands, fruits, pillows, and cups on the floor. Each of those pieces are extremely detailed and perfectly done. The animal heads are a very nice touch. The Water Buffalo head looks more like a sheep or bison to me and does not look at all like a water buffalo. Anyway, it's always a pleasure to look at your customs/dioramas and keep up the great work!

can't we just have a topless forum instead?

I strongly agree with this idea.
