I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

It's a great accessory.

Did you get it from the 50th Anniversary Baroness or the Rise of Cobra Baroness?

 

 

It can attach to the ROC Cobra Gunship for max funs.

50th Anniversary.

I think I'm probably done with my IDW supervillain shelf now, unless a 3.75-inch Miles Mayhem comes into existence someday, but I am kinda tempted to find a hooded Cobra Commander and give his head and gloves to the Baroness...

I'm still toying with whether I want to remove his beard paint and give him his comic-accurate moustache.

I dunno if it's widely known, but he's actually got the little skinny moustache sculpted onto him, with the full beard just painted over the top. Apparently Hasbro changed their mind about his facial hair last minute!

Hey! Hey guys!  We got to dig up this corpse because Hasbro's being weird at the licensing expo in Las Vegas.

 

An image popped up on Social Media showing that Hasbro has a walled off room for GI Joe.  They don't have that for any other brand.

https://twitter.com/...395881790496768

 

Former Hasbro employee Bobby Vala has been quite negative in his response, indicating his view that it's probably Hasbro trying to license out GI Joe like Mattel has done with MOTU or the recent agreement with Wicked Cool Toys making new Micro Machines.

 

My view is that Hasbro DOES have something big for GI Joe.  I don't think they'd have a big showing at a Licensing show if they were trying to pass it off to someone else.  My feeling is that Hasbro is still expecting the movie to get made (even with the delay.  Hell, still haven't heard ANYTHING about Micronauts progress), and if their work on Transformers and Power Rangers are any indication, they may well be hoping to have a multifaceted approach with more than just a movie line.  Maybe some sort of "evergreen" concept for licensing?

 

Guess we'll see in a few months.

What are you talking about?  Hasbro owned Kenner.  There was no licensing involved, just handing it off to a different branch.  You know, the same branch that did GI Joe Extreme.

I'm hard pressed to see that happening, since it requires someone having enough interest in Joe to pay Hasbro to use the name.

Super quick LBC. I picked up one of the Fortnite figs on sale and used him as a base for my new Joe character (head from Angelfire).
 
Guneet "Gunny" Singh 
PMOS:  Advanced Foreign Security Forces Advisor 
AMOS:   Infantry Unit Leader 
Birthplace: Yuba City, CA    Grade: E-7
 
Growing up in Yuba City, Guneet always admired the stories of his grandfather Bhagat Singh, who was one of the first Sikhs to serve in the US military. Wanting to follow in his footsteps, Guneet joined the Marine Corps straight out of high school, eventually earning the rank of Gunnery Sgt before being recruited for the JOE team from FORECON after an impressive joint mission. 
 
"Gunny'll jump out of anything, into anywhere, and swim, hike or crawl however far he needs to all with a smile on his face. He wears me out!" - Gung-ho
