Gentle Giant / Re: Gentle Giant Jumbo Vintage Kenner Figures

I just bought R2-D2 and C-3PO.  Also, I plan to buy R5-D4 and a Power Droid if they make that one.  I really wouldn't mind having everything but I think I'll stick to just the Droids if possible.

I sure hope Gentle Giant doesn't start making some 1982/83+ ARAH GI Joe Jumbo figures.  Those would really be hard to pass on.

I just bought C-3PO and R2-D2 from mostwantedcollectibles for $138.66 shipped.  I can't wait to get these.

I saw R2-D2 at Source Comics today but it was $80.  I thought about buyingit but I wanted both droids at once.

Anyone still reading these?  With all the different Joe lines I have to constantly re-check the covers while I am reading to recall which universe the story is in! 

The new scratch-off cover is an awesome gimmick and was very successful with me, I bought two so I could scratch one off and leave the other intact.  I experienced a real child-like thrill scratching off that mask.  They should do something like that more often, and wouldn't it have been cool if different covers had different people under the mask, distributed in random assortments?

Which comic had the scratch-off?

I probably won't buy them.  I missed out/passed on so many exclusives since the 25th line ended that I no longer feel like a completist of this new stuff.  However, I may buy a Zarana if I see one on ebay for cheap someday.

I'm going to pass on Footloose and get a couple Man of Evil figures and accessory sets.  My Henchman figure will now have a boss.

These are starting to warm the Target shelves around here.  Hopefully, sales pick up when kids start buying them or requesting them for gifts.  Otherwise, clearance in December.

Has anyone seen the Series 5 minifigures show up at retail yet in the US? 

I've been going on an Alien Conquest binge lately, what with my disgust with Hasbro's distribution and all.  The Alien Striker (5 bucks for an Alien Defense Unit Human, Alien, and tiny alien skimmer) set is particularly addictive, and I've been buying multiples of them when I go into TRU, and ordering extra minifigure heads from Lego's website to do headswaps.  Very cool stuff, and the UFO noise that the Alien Mothership makes never fails to bring a grin to my face. :)

I saw the new Alien mother ship set at Costco the other day for $45.  Really want that Supreme Commander figure.

I tried to buy the Starscream too.  Had it in my cart but couldn't get any further and then it sold out.  Thought it was worth a try but I really didn't need this thing.

That Sci-Fi is awesome.  That will be the first figure simce the 25th line ended that I will buy and keep.

$35.  I already helped pay for it by selling the Ace figure that I didn't want and some of the alternate labels that I didn't use. 

I tempted to buy a second so I can use the alternate yellow stripe labels.  They also come with extra character labels to make more variations.  People are going to be buying a lot of these for customs.

Here are the alternate/extra labels that come with the set.

Here's Ace. 

Joe Defender / 2011 Sky Striker

People have been finding the Skystriker at Target stores around the country.  Sounds like most stores are receiving a case of three to start.  I managed to buy one from a local Target by using the dpci.  087 06 1686

It's a very nice remake.  The plastic is quite a bit darker and duller than the original.  Some missiles fall off easily.  The front landing gear tends to drop down a little when wings are closed. 

It comes with extra yellow stripes, emblems and several different character labels to customize or utilize when army building.

Has anyone heard if Skywarp will be rereleased after Thundercracker?

Stopped at Target today and Wreck-Gar and Perceptor were too tempting.  I bought those two and will probably pick up Wheeljack and Scourge now for sure.

GI Joe only. 
Mainly Lowlight, Skystriker, Techno Viper, Sci-Fi, 30th Storm Shadow and a few others. 
Passing on the Joecon set except for a Cobra De Aco if I find one for cheap.
