@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

This is nice. Pretty much what I expected, con Sparta with the DTC CG's coat. Kudos for adding the belt from 25th Lady Jaye.

That being said, I really can't say a vintage-style Cover Girl is something I'd be interested in paying premium prices for.

Same here.

'bout the only way I could get worked up would be if she was packed with a Wolverine or another such Joe tank. And since the first part of the cartoon had her as a blonde in a green jumpsuit, Hasbro technically could make that happen if they wanted to.

But by herself as a subscription figure? No thanks.

2012 looks like it'll be a good year for Joes. I'll definitely be picking up Storm Shadow, Sci-fi, and Airtight for sure. Will have to see more of some of the others before making a final decision on them. Oh, and I'm squarely on the fence about picking up Renegades Firefly. Can anyone who owns him give me a good reason to purchase?

Well, in other news, they revealed the twelfth figure, Big Boa:


The body was a no-brainer. They did a lot of new parts: head, gloves, chest straps. They even included a lot of the cancelled ROC "training" Duke's gear.
On the other hand, that cream color on the helmet isn't look very good, and the painted-on "crotchplate" isn't impressive but it would've been acceptable, had it not been for the fact that they "bled" it over the sculpted belt as well.

Personally, I'm not digging it, but that's more because I feel Boa needs a modern upgrade with some MMA added to him, than as a big Schwarzenegger-built boxer.
It's why I've been using the leaner Terra-Viper, with Rex Lewis's claws, as my modernized Big Boa.

Detour, what you describe sounds neat... but not Big Boa. They're not trying to reinvent the guy. He IS a big beefy bodybuilder.

This is a DAMN good update, IMO. I'm actually pretty shocked we have real gloves; I figured it would be the... well, the MMA-style gloves from POC Quick Kick. The extra headgear surprises me, as that suggests a removable helmet and yet ANOTHER new part. The helmet and colors overall do seem a bit bright... then again, I don't expect this guy to be hitting the battlefield.

No, the extra headgear is intended for his sparring partner, says so on the Club site.

I went through the last year's worth of mags and wrote up everything about the fantastic Adventure Team comics, dossiers, reviews, and more! If you're enjoying the Adventure Team, come talk about it! If you want to know more, come ask! If you hate the Adventure Team, you have no soulcome talk about what you DO like in the Club Mag!

A crew member was just killed on the set of the second G. I. Joe movie.

I've read two different accounts so far, and it appears that he was in the process of taking down a set when his power lift toppled over.

Guess we'll have to wait and see what specifically went wrong here; so much stuff can go down with a power lift that it's not even funny.

So now that the club has released the card art (not impressed) for the first subscription figure are we going to have to wait until all twelve are shown before the prices are released?

The longer the wait the less interested I'm becoming in signing up.

I also really resent that I have to join the more expensive membership tier to get the subscription. I haven't been a Joe Club member in I don't know how many years but I didn't need to be in a higher tier to buy FunPub's exclusives back then.

Lastly, at $20.00-$25.00USD per fig., why does it have to be two figs. per month?

The more I think about it the less likely I'm going to want to swing $50.00USD not including S&H a month for kitbashes of varying quality of characters I have little to no affinity for.

Hrmm...
