Huhn. Penny arcade was right, the division 2 is literally 3 dollars...

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

Maybe if I'm lucky, this'll mean a second round for the single-carded figures around here as well.

The local Wal-Mart got maybe a single case of the Sci-Fi wave, and due to the usual "me not getting paid on time" bit I missed them all.

Despite putting out pegs (and me pestering every week), mine never got a SINGLE case of GI Joe figures until Retaliation. I've pretty much given up on finding toys locally, given Walmart's handling of the past few years.
About the only stuff I get are movie tie in or Transformers (stock still cycles pretty good here)



With the survey, I made known my design for a PoC/30th Lt. Falcon and Pythona.

My top ten, if I can remember, I filled out the survey this morning were in no real order

Ninja force Scarlett
Overkill v1
Interrogator v1
Cesspool
Firefly in his green suit
Night Creeper Leader
General Hawk in his 90's flight suit
Some version of Sgt. Slaughter
The orange black and green BAT
...and I can't remember who else. Probably another 90's guy. hug, I should have put Metal Head. Damn it.

Hell, the Zombie Viper has already come and gone, and it was hard to find? That's the only GI Joe figure I've wanted since the Matt Trakker homage... but I'm not really excited about paying eBay prices for a rare-ish figure.

The entire wave is hard to find. I've yet to find any of his packmates. If you can find a full assortment of the five figures, I'll gladly snag the humans and let you keep the zombie.

I was horribly mentally blocked while answering that survey. So many of those ideas are ones I'm kicking myself for forgetting. But I guess there's only so many good ideas that would fit... I mostly put down DD stuff like the three-person core Red Shadows team, military-dress-uniform Joseph Colton [we don't have that kind of formal suit yet, I think?], a Plague Trooper armybuilder with lots of helmets/heads...

Bushido
Head Man
Head Hunters/Stormtroopers
Ambush
Female Doc
Widescope and/or some DEF members to keep Shockwave and Law company.
Ninja Force Night Creeper (with soft good feather cape, naturally)
Hydro-Viper
Undertow, just think of the barracuda they could make.

My kingdom for a modern Hydro-Viper.

I LOVED that figure. Love the Monster mask. Love the webbed hands and flippers. Loved the colors. WANT WANT WANT. icon-hotrod.gif

After that I put Mercer, the rest of the Cobra La stuff, the space pilot version of Sci Fi, and Robo-Joe just for Walky's responce.

TBC Hawk wore a dress uniform, and TBC Stalker's outfit could be regarded as another one.

In that sense, Hasbro could produce a generic dress uniform body and then just swap out heads and accessories.

If you have a Walgreens, Rite Aid or CVS up there, I've had VERY excellent success using the pharmacies to pick up my figures. Aside from Renegades Storm Shadow, Zombie Viper, and Lifeline, I've come across ALL of the last two waves of 30th there.

No Walgreens, Rite Aids or CVS up here. The pharmacy market's already been cornered, and most of them don't bother with toys.

Yeah - there were a ton of cancelled/dream figures which you can vote on at Generals Joes. It's not an official Hasbro poll, but apparently they are gauging fan reaction (we've actually seen quite a few of the designer's customs from a number of years ago so it's worth a vote).

As for official, upcoming products - not much we haven't seen already, but there are a few new figs shown (TNI's index is messed up, the Joe stuff starts on page 5).
