Seats 2, plus another guy standing. Haven't tried it with RAH Joes yet.

Also, I managed to score a Techno-Viper and Renegades Tunnel Rat on Monday. Sadly, still no Storm Shadow.
You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....
I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

- G.I. Joe is stated to be "In the near future," meaning that, by the time of the movie, the Autobot/Decepticon War could have ended/left Earth. In that case, one can believe that the futuristic technology of the film is an improvement over Sector 7 and NEST's current tech.
- It's also impied that The Mummy Trilogy take place in the same Universe (Brendan Frazer says his character from G.I. Joe is a descendent of his character from the Mummy). This would also mean that The Scorpion King is set in this universe.
Is any of this actually true? Granted, that page has examples that don't look right anyway, but I need to make sure before doing any possible correction, and I haven't actually seen Rise of Cobra, so I need someone to explain.

(I mean, maybe Brendan Fraser really did mention the Mummy thing in an interview or something, I don't know, but that still wouldn't even mean much)

As for the TF/Joe connection... being Hasbro properties, I find a meta-reference much more likely than actually being in the same universe. Assuming for a moment that a few TF vehicles did show up, sometimes an Easter egg is just an Easter egg. A couple of cars in the background of a shot does not actually invoke all this connection that's being drawn.
In other words, it sounds like a couple of in-jokes are being turned into something they aren't.

I'm just waiting for BBTS to put up preorders at this rate. Their per-figure case rate is usually on par if not lower than normal retail.

If that's the case all over, I guess I'll just go back and get a Phantom X-19, Cobra Mamba, and that weird TRU DtC HISS from right before Sigma 6 and call it quits on Joe purchasing for everything aside from the SDCC HISSwave.
