x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

Nevermore remarked over in the Transformers threads that the Australian Toy Fair is this coming weekend, perhaps we'll see a couple more reveals there?  It would definitely make an impact for the global relaunch to reveal the remainder of the wave at an international venue.

Yeeessh, good news of a sort: Jada toy is doing die-cast vehicles in two sizes and metal figurines.

I will definitely be picking up the vehicles - that is what I always wanted the old GIJoe Micromachine line to be. The figures are kind of cool too - I did have quite a few of the micro figures back in the day.

If we don't see anything related to these figures, even if it's just the three Classified retail releases then I wont hold out much hope for international releases :(

I ordered the exclusive Snake Eyes this morning off of Hasbro Pulse. After taxes and shipping, it was $49. Considering I spent $0 over the past few years on Joes, I'm OK with this.

 

Pretty hopeful I'll see the rest in stores. Can't wait for the rest of wave 1 reveal.

Depending on the quality of sculpt I might pony up for a ReAction Storm Shadow.

 

(I just wish Hasbro would hurry up and make a deal witn Funko or Super7 for some D&D ReAction stuffs)

The ultimate irony that the line that helped put the nail in Star Wars' 5 POA coffin should come back as 5 POA figures in the vintage Star Wars aesthetic.

 

We are truly in the darkest timeline.

I'd be up a few depending on how they turn out, just like Transformers.  I think Joe is REALLY fascinating in that context given its relation to that era of Star Wars, and probably a better fit than something like Aliens (which would more likely acquire a style akin to Kenner's 4.25 scale if produced back then).

 

Hopefully Super 7 won't repeat the the mistakes made by Gentle Giant, who went for "chronological releases" rather than the dynamic, popular, characters people wanted.

Take this with a grain of salt. Another site is listing information on a Retro Line at Walmart. Figures are listed at $12.93 each, while "Retro Vehicle Cobra HISS" is $26.82.

 

Unsure if this is a re-issue of O-ring figures, or what.

Yeah. I saw that and am curious. I suspect they'll be O-ring figures simply because that would follow the naming convention established by Star Wars where "retro" means "original-style", vs "Vintage" which means "Modern-sculpt/high-articulation". 

 

Don't think I'll be personally interested in that. I don't even need any more HISSes. I guess we could look back at all the ME vehicle releases to see what else might return (though many were modified or outright re-sculpted for the larger figures). It would be funny though if they re-released a Skystriker with a 2-person cockpit.

Probably o-ring figures.  This might be a boon to o-ring collectors, though.  Hasbro has long half assed their o-ring usage, but with changes in manufacturing locations and tool storage means they might be TRUE "recast" figures like the Retro Star Wars line or the Kenner Ghostbusters figures.  This would be a great chance to finally see a new production for the classic V2 Snake Eyes figure, whose tooling was last some 25 years ago.

 

As I recall from the various codes-

Tarantula is Snake Eyes

Scorpion is Storm Shadow

Darkling is Destro.

 

Not sure on the others, but Mantis feels like it might be Baroness.  Not sure about Mayfly or Mosquito, but I think it is safe that one of them is Cobra Commander.

From a purely selfish point of view, I hope they're o-rings. The last time JOE was fun for me was the reissues of the early 2000s.

 

I'm looking forward to the 6" stuff, but a line of reissues ala the TF one (although preferably not that expensive)? Yeah. I'd be all for that.

The screenshots indicated figures would be $12.96, the HISS Tank would be $29.something.  The tank is a bit pricy, but certainly in line with other "reissue" type products we've gotten recently.  But again, if Hasbro is actually restoring lost molds like the V1 Destro or V2 Snake Eyes, that would make the $13 price VERY attractive to long time collectors.

 

I know a good shape, complete, V1 Destro or V2 Snake Eyes probably sell for a LOT more than $13
