You'll never get a sexy Baroness
Will this thread be as bad as the last?
>>7517411Just ignore the troll and it should be fine.
You know what pisses me off? CORPS figures are still on the shelves and GI Joe is not.
>>7517409>>You'll never get a sexy BaronessWe'll never get 1/18 G.I joe again at this rate senpai.
>>7517423Well, if Hasbro was as cheap as Lanard they'd still be on the shelf too. The CORPS must cost pennies to produce.
Did someone say...sexy baroness?
>>7517449Maybe this is a better view?Don't let the Moneybags Destro accessories and SDCC Destro distract you...
>>7517450Wham!You will speak when commanded by the Baroness!Now tell me, where are the joes? Where are they hiding?...and most importantly, why are they no longer at retail :( ?
>>7517450>>7517449Ugh that ugly Eccleston head
>>7517423money laundry scheme
>somewhere at the Cobray desert...I got another one of these mountaineer dudes. I need another one to complete my squad. I try to have 5 of each cobra specialty I like.
>>7517474>...a desert/mountain specialist team of highly trained commandos is doing recon for the mechanized company a couple miles behind
>>7517481>A cave that needs exploring to make sure there are no rebels hiding there or the american terrorist unit known as G.I. Joe
>>7517423That red chick has seen some shit.
>>7517491>the selection process for this specialty has a 90% attrition rate. To be continued..
>>7517411Literally what I asked myself as soon as I saw the new thread
>>7517449>>7517450>>7517455Oooh nice use of the Aurora head. Very sexy.>>7517474>>7517481>>7517487>>7517491>>7517499Great outside shots anon. Rock Vipers make excellent dessert troopers. What vehicle is that? >>7517502Previous thread was was 90% great except for that 10% at the end when the troll showed up.
>>7517520>desertDang it im craving something sweet right now.
>>7517493She’s a lesbo. Only lesbians shave the side of their head like that.
>>7517520It's the Desert Scorpion, it shares its codename with a trooper which is a fantastic sculpt too. It came out in 1993 I think. The one with out stickers on the hood is the one I had since I was a kid, the other better preserved one I recently aquired.
>>7517520>>7517599It came in two variations: black chassis and tan details or tan chassis and black details. I suppose you could have an all black or tan that would be cool to find pics of.
>>7517599>>7517605It's just called "Scorpion". Desert is the figure.
>>7517599>1993Ahh that makes sense. That's when i stopped buying joes as a kid and girls where more important. Now im married and back to collecting joes. Lol
>>7517455Is that pizza or spaghettios?
>>7517455>Baroness "You will give me the nuclear codes or I swear, I will make you eat this entire bowl of spaghettios!" >Roadblock "Oh god..no. Please....nooooooo!!!"
>>7517455Hey look, it’s Not Baroness and Not Cobra Troopers.
>>7517621oh my bad, I guess that makes more sense.
>>7517449MBD Catholic girls from Canada all the way...
>>7517455>>7517450>>7517449Is that a marauders head? I recognize the regular marauders troopers
>>7517750That's a Marvel Universe Aurora head
>>7517474If you are interested. Raginspoon.com has the rock viper helmets.
Post your favorite specialized vipers.>Night Viper reporting
>6 months go by and still no restock on AKM's at marauders' site
>>7517856Took 2 weeks between me paying them and my order getting shipped. Don't rush.
>>7517856I'm hoping for a lul in a month or two between them filling orders from the last Kickstarter and when the WW2 guys start coming.
So I'm interested in gettiung into some BFS figures. What's the coolest ones that are out right now?
>>7517785Night Vipers are pretty excellent. Mind you most Viper-Variants are pretty good, they knew what they were doing when designing them.
I wrote an email to marauders. Vietnam KS is postponned until next year because of the launching of the WW2 figures.I wonder what is their process to decide when and what to launch?. Like how do they gauge interest and are they taking into account the periods when people have money or is it all random dates? Because it seems the later.Also to me it's a bit odd they announced Vietnam after their succesful WW2 KS, when they are doing early war germans at most and some allies, there's lots of fabric from where to cut with WW2 regarding figures, with germans alone you could launch 5-6 figures every six months.And what do you think about their bussiness model of keeping early stuff still in stock? They told me everything out of stock currently is on a re-order status with the factories. I mean you can still find their series one weapons together with the new stuff, that doesn't seems sustainable to me (keep paying for ancient molds when the demand probably isn't the same as when they were launched) but I'm glad they do this because I can prioritize and order what I want most knowing the other stuff will be there for when I order next. Except the akm's god damn it. Yeah I'm the akm guy.
>>7518031Beautiful shot anon. Just beautiful.
>>7518031Although not technically specialized vipers, the CCNs are based as well.
>>7518089They said they would be doing a 2nd WW2 KS after the first one so it makes sense the NAM one would launch next year.Im a big fan of several of their older series weapons. The Ak74 is my favorite cobra trooper assault rifle.
>>7517386>>7517409The Palisades bust was as close as we got.Both the Sideshow and PCS executions look like everyone's white trash metal head aunt.But yeah, I was able to get a stiffy from the Palisades bust (had a nice ass, too).
>>7517449>boobs literally two scale feet beneath her chin>shoulder spacing of an 8yoWhoever did the sculpt of that figure had no understanding of female OR adult anatomy. Probably was one of the POTF sculptors.>that faceNo.
>>7517785>Night ViperSweet! Literally the very last G.I. Joe figure I ever bought before I "outgrew" them.
>>7518371>Hasbro is shit at anatomyWhat else is new?
>>7517430>because Hasbro shells out a fortune and doesn't also reduce cost to bare minimum
>>7518089The fact that they are keeping the older stuff in stock probably means it's selling as well. And if it's selling there has to be a reason and a demand. I'm willing to bet we see a SCUBA offering in the next two waves or as a side item. I know I nagged about it.
>>7517386Not gonna lie, I paid various Romanian camgirls on LiveJasmin with long black hair to wear glasses and tight black longsleeve tops with black yoga pants specifically to look like the Baroness.
>>7518463you r a hero my man
>>7518604My vote is on dragon priest
which one of these vehicles would be best for GI Joe?
>>7518695there's also ponies.
>>7518604Knight, dragon priest, elf ranger, autumn elfCant go wrong with any of them
>>7518740My least favorites are:Dragon harvester - the face kills it for me. She does have a masked head alt head but if you want the head with the helmet you will need to deal with that horrible face.Female Drow - no real unique parts for her. She is just blah. She does come with 2 nice heads though.Gargoyle - well its not that its bad its just well a stone gargoyle. Kinda boring. A tail would of made it better. Also they have 2 heads. Both are scary / ugly. They should of made the alt head a sexy/demonic female to contrast the primary head.
>>7518740Autumn elf doesn't come with any good heads tho, the green one's alt head is better.
>>7518772>>Dragon harvester - the face kills it for me. She does have a masked head alt head but if you want the head with the helmet you will need to deal with that horrible face.If you don't mind doing some work then that Sand Stone blank and that one Gorgon Sister from series 1 have pretty much the same skin tone. The Hispanic heads from Marauders also match pretty close. Naturally you'll need to paint the eyes for the blank heads, or do some mod work for the Marauder heads to work with the neck and joint.>>Female Drow - no real unique parts for her. She is just blah. She does come with 2 nice heads though.Just the heads I think are unique so far. At leas the main one with the white hair. Everything else has been reused or from before, I think the Crossbow, bolts and quiver were unique to that figure initially. >>7518740An orc is also a good starting figure, plenty of options and you can't go wrong with a good army builder like that.
>>7518772>>7518816The web exclusive elf assassin is really cool as well
>>7518780I like the autumn elf better but yes the asp elf is just as good with the alt head. The main head is odd and doesnt really go with the elf aesthetic. It looks more like a gnome or halfling.>>7518816>orc Very true. Both male and female figures are solid and come with a ton of accessories.
>>7518740>>7518677My picks: Knight of Accord/Asperity, Dragon Priest, Aspen and Eligor. Can't decide on which orc I like best, probably the female one.
>>7518989>>7518990Got some nice comparison pics of the elf heads? Hard to find good reviews of them
>>7518371What's wrong with the face?
>>7518695These look like Mega -sized figures from the pic but I suspect the scooter (repainted) might work.
Any action pics with both main Boss fight Elves?
>>7519065>>7519009Ill post some when i get home.
Okay, time to settle this.Scarlett or Lady Jaye?
>>7519439Fuck ScarlettMarry Lady JayeKill Jinx
How do I get my hands on a 1:18 nightstick without dropping $100 on the 30'th anniversary Law?
>>7519590there are other figures that have it that are not expensive. The alley viper for example and quick kick or shockwave. I might be bullshitting you on the last two though.
>>7519643Awesome, Thank you! Gives me a reason to finally grab an Alley Viper, too.
>>7519648>not having a squad of alley vipers alreadyGET HIM!
>>7519654This!!>>7519648Shame on you anon.
>>7519099Cool I like the wood elf and am convinced but my gf likes (from at least the pics she's seen) the other one (without the pudding head.- at least we agree on that)
>>7519687Here you go.
>>7519590Retaliation Roadblock as well as acid rain king both have night sticks
>>7519863she looks like a crusty librarian with all the charm of an old boot.
>>7519863Well aren't you a special roody poo.
>>7519757>>7519752>>7519748Thanks. I like the drow best
>>7520068FYI, she comes with a crossbow instead of a bow.
>>7520231Bad or good?
>>7520239It all depends on what you prefer. I like bows but that's just me.
>>7519439I like Scarlett but I love Lady Jaye
Despite being an east Europe noblewoman, Baroness isn't a vampire.
>>7518369>had a nice ass, too
>>7519863>says this is ugly
Marauders NOT!John Wick came in.Not digging the stiffer plastic on the legs, though. They feel brittle.
>>7520452But anyway, now I have a disposable guy in a suit and a fantastic head for customs.
Boss Fight got the Lucha Libre license. Dunno if it's for 1:18 yet though.
>>7520546Space HACKS are never coming are they?
>>7520554I want the pirates wave first especially since they're already making some parts that would work for them
>>7520558Agree. Pirates first. Space can wait. There is already star wars for space stuff.>>7520546Santo, Blue Demon and Tinieblas please!
>>7520554>:I want Sam and Max but I have no idea when they are arriving or how much they cost. I want to give a Sam to a friend of mine as he just lost his Mom.
>>7520593I agree I need my mermaids
>lost my team. All KIA or captured. Must get out of here..
Extraction Point must be near...
>*very fast croc master movin at a incredible hihg speed*
>got lost joe?>what the h*ck!?
>you won't need this>*swoosh*
> come over heeere!
>in here no one can hear you scream
>Ah you think this swamp is your ally? You merely adopted the environment. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding>*slowly reaches for machete*
>>7520691Why the heck did they reissue croc master twice? Out of all the 25th figures in existence.
>I could use some new boots...The end.
>>7520416looks like Famke Janssen
>>7517386I think it's cool OP took the time to make a dedicated image for the thread theme. I want a 1:18th of her now.
>>7520728Oh sorry was it three times?
>>7520730You got it!
>>7520730They released Blowtorch three times as well.
>>7520769It's not even a good figure!>>7520788Fan-favorite Blowtorch?!?!??!
>>7520769I keep going back and forth on that blowtorch croc master two pack. On one hand the red croc master looks cool, on the other I don't give a shit about blowtorch.
>>7520769>>7520707>>7520704>>7520700>>7520699>>7520691>>7520690>>7520689>>7520686>>7520682>>7520680>>7520676>>7520673>>7520669>>7520666>>7520662>>7520660He needs a marauder quality Crocodile and/or Gator to go with him (I can dream right?)I miss those dollar general store basic Joes.
>>7520707That was cool
>>7520825Not bad. Just needs some glasses.
Two guys from MTG that I made. I don't really have a solid plan for what I'm going for. Just a bunch of mercenaries running around, talking shit and blowing things up. I've really enjoyed them.
>>7519748Thanks. I was pretty sure I wanted the wood elf but she was wavering over the other one. This sold her on the wood elf. Myself I wish that this one also had an alternate face/ hair colour but I am glad it doesn't have an alternate that has THAT face.
>>7520982Damn, that black and red looks so slick. What head did you use on him?
>>7521013It's the Falcon v3 head. I actually got that figure first then thought G.I Joe's were a lot cooler than I remembered and got into the 25th anniversary and MTG stuff from there.
>>7520817 Dollar General Joes that weren't overflowing with weapons, weapon packs and small "set" things like the F.O.B. with the shelter and mortar or maybe an ATV or mortorbike would reduce the price point per figure and keep the price forcefully down. that wouldn't bring them exactly in range of TRU Heros and The Corps! but the overall quality would be a draw. I am just going to keep buying World Peackeeper stuff and Marauder as that's not gonna happen. (even sets like the partial buildings would go well) -but what do I know.
>>7520982The Black and Red is Sexy. Sort of a Live Action Captain Scarlet The green guy gives me an Exosquad/SF vibe..
>>7521029Cool. I didn't know his hat was removable.Also, I dig the green guy's style.
>>7521053Thanks, my idea for him is he's a strong back kind of guy with a love of heavy weapons, very nice very dependable and takes unending shit because despite all the heavy armor, wears a lucky baseball cap like a dumb ass.
I want a qt 1:18 waifu. What's a good one? No BFS, please.
>>7521149Dunno, pick one.
>>7521155Butter up those ass cheeks anon, because most of them will be well above retail now.
>>7521149I got her to use the head on a custom Baroness but I just love how she looks.
>>7521160Lol, you are not kidding. This Scarlet is a cutie and still affordable. You just have to make sure you get one with good eye paint apps. I had to fix mine a little but she looks good now.
>>7521163Yeah, she does have a great head sculpt.
>>7521167Is that Renegades? That face looks way better than the preview pics I saw on Amazon.
>>7521170Yeah. She has a nice face. It's just that her eyes can be a little off. I painted a thin black line on her upper eyelid to make her eyes look more natural. Came out good.
>>7521175For some reason I thought it was stylized more like the cartoon. I was totally wrong. May have to grab her.I wish I could find all my old 25'th and Rise of Cobra Joe figures. I tore my basement apart a couple months ago looking and couldn't find any of them. I'm probably a weirdo, but I really liked some of the RoC figures. Mainly Shipwreck and Paris Baroness.
>>7521180Rise of Cobra had some pretty good figures. Some of the designs from the film were uninspired, but the toys made of them were fine. It lead to Pursuit of Cobra too.
>>7521163That'll be a great head for a Baroness with the hair black and glasses.
those Pawtucket assholes made the perfect Baroness but turned it into an exclusive.
>>7521268most of the figure was reused parts anyway. Ideally just get the first 25th figure(from the box set) for the head then the later one for that body.
>>7521163>.I got mine when she was on sale at Smalljoes.com She was $7.99 and I should have gotten 3. they actually don't charge that much in my opinion. If I want a possible figure I will go there before I check the rape ebay prices. Their selection changes and they get new stock which is nice.
>>7521268at it's slightly too big.
>>7521149Planet Greenvalley and Zombie Lab have some interesting choices there
>>7521149 Put together a Sarah Connor or Bombstrike from Marauder.
>>7517423I would buy them if figures have articulates thighsOnly female ones have those but it's hard to buy them and they are not sold separately like other ones
>>7521341For who?>>7521532They're cheap enough that I bought the two pack and threw out the dudes.
>>7521744But if you want the original molds with cleavage you have to go onto eBay, because conservative soccer moms and the rednecks running Walmart griped about duh genie rat titties and made them add a shirt some time ago.
>>7517386not sure if this the right place to ask, im looking for ww1 and 2 action figures around the scale of gi joes. other war or solider figures are welcome too
>>7521923>ConservativesUh yeah right. More like SJW company policies.
>>7521926Marauders' ww2 kickstarter ended a while ago but they are putting their stuff on their site in september or so.
>>7521926I've also seen these for sale not that expensive. Not sure on the quality but they look ok. It is supposed to be a squad: there's a squad leader, machine gunner, rifleman etc.
>>7521941this is probably as good as im going to get. how much are these going to cost to army build?
>>7521926They will be available for you to purchase sometime this year, once the backers receive their rewards.https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1732159183/marauder-task-force-wwii-1-18-scale-4-inch-action/updates
>>7521946>mg42 gunnerthats my dream right there, is there a maxim gunner as well?
>>7521947Don't know for sure. Right now just a body with out head is about $12. A fully geared up figure is going to set you back like $30.
>>7521952no. Hiya only made a german squad. Marauders is doing some russians I think. But not sure if they are doing a maxim 1910, probably not.
>>7521953>just want an army of cons with an officer>its going to rape my wallet too hardwell fuck me
Just threw together another $40 cart for MGR stuff. Waiting for payday tomorrow to pull the trigger. Before I do that, though, way back when I got my first ones, I was using a hair dryer to soften up the elbow peg hole to swap in rolled up sleeves and I guess I over cooked the figure so now his left leg won't peg onto the hip properly. Is there a simple fix for this or should I stick with my plan to buy some new legs?
How's that Click n Play shit? As toxic as I imagine it would be?
>>7517386Fortnite Omega is underwhelming. I want my money back. I've bought better Playmates toys for a third of the price. I regret I didn't get Carbide instead, because at least he is shiny and looks more buff.My biggest issues are the stiffness of the shoulders, the flimsiness of the ankles and the legs not "coordinating". They look like one is more bent than the other. Is it possible to take Fortnite figures apart without damaging them? Would smoothing ratchet joints make them useless or would they function like friction joints?
>>7522466A lot of people here have said they're great. I don't like fortnite and I don't really care for the slightly cartoony proportions. Cap it off with a 20 dollar price tag for Omega who looks half way decent and the whole line is a hard pass from me.
>>7522558>>7522466Its not for everyone but more choices for 1/18 are always welcome. Fornite figs are articulated and offer sci-fi designs. In my country you buy a star wars 5poa for ~$15 so that price for fortnite is amazing.
>>7522638Omega costs 30€ and the others 20€ in mine.
>>7522466You should of asked for some opinions man. Plenty of folks here to help you out.Even though I like Omega's design, he is one of my least favorite due to his limited arm articulation. Same goes for Carbide and Raven.Best figures from wave 1 IMHO are:Cuddles, Rex, Rust Lord, and JonesyGetting the 4 pack gets you 2 of the best figures plus Brite Bomber who is really nice to have as well. The 4 pack comes with guns too. So thats 10 bucks per figure. Great deal.
>>7523208>Carbide looks more buffHe is the exact same figure as Omega minus the head and paint. Also multiple anons on the thread have recommended to dip the figures in very hot water to loosen and straighten joins.
What's a cool non-Star Wars 1:18 space ship?
>>7523961Why cant it be star wars? The prequel ships are great and most are still cheap on ebay.
>>7523964They have too much setting-baggage for me. I'd prefer something that would work better with Joes or other 1:18 figures.
>>7523961Someone suggested this vehicle from the Justice League movie and took a couple of photos of what he did to act more like a vehicle than just a playset.It scales pretty well with GI Joes.
>>7523966There is not much then. Star Brigade starfighter is a spaceship that works.
>>7523977>>7523969Thoughts on the Rise of Cobra Nightraven? The original is such a sexy machine, but I'm guessing modern figures wouldn't fit.
>>7524019And, of course, I forgot pic.
>>7524022I bought of these for my nephew for birthday or christmas because I saw them at like 15 euro or something in a toy store at the bargain aisle and I thought that was stupid cheap for a toy of this scale. I kinda regret not picking up one for myself as well, but I don't collect GI Joes so I didn't
>>7524019>The original is such a sexy machineYes it is anon, yes it is.
I was on a fb group and someone brought up these guys. I've never heard of them and while they do have some decent vehicles. I'm not super impressed. Anyone have any of their stuff? https://www.mctoy.com.hk/index.php/i/products/0?lang=eng
>>7524716Its powerteam elite/ world pacekeepers. How have you not heard about them? I have a couple of humvees and the command center. They are pretty cool. The figures suck and their small arms are made of rubber but the playsets and vehicles are nice.
>>7524721What's the difference between World Heroes and Click n Play? Amazon is selling a "Command Center" from both that look identical, only one is available through Prime and the other isn't.
>>7524721I just started collecting a few months ago. I might have to grab some of their vehicles.
>>7524757I guess they license them. Click n play might be amazon's own 'brand' and world heroes is the first time I hear of them. But the molds are the same and they are made by M&C toys. Marauders sells individual stuff from them like crates and lockers etc that still have the M&C logo.
>>7524721Also you got pics of that Command center?
>>7524721Bruh. How have you not heard of these?
>>7524019Modern figures fit in the drone plane, but not the actual Night Raven.
>>7523208Eh, I'm only interested in Omega and Carbide because I like power armor and robots. Raptor looks fun but the others doesn't interest me in the least.>>7523215Omega has those spikes that give him a more limber silhouette, plus dark colours make things look thinner.Speaking of, I can't tell which parts of ingame Omega are black and which are grey aside from the arms. Does anyone here have him unlocked?
>>7527284Ok, gotcha. Then have you checked out figures based on the ROC accelerator suit buck? It's a Joe power armor suit. It is a very nice figure.
Any joytoy fans here?The new release comes with drop pods and figures are pre-made - no more gluing accessories yourself.
>>7527366articulation showcase I got from some chinese site
>>7527386looking real good
>>7527366Not my aesthetic but I can appreciate a good sculpt.
>>7527366>no more gluing accessories yourself.Yaaaaas bitch. The price is right but the effort involved kinda killed it for me. With this being the case I'm probably going to start ordering these again. Does the drop ship actually fit them because the previous ones seemed more scaled for the smaller figures than the 1/18
>>7527436these ones are correctly scaled, so 1/18 figures should fit inside them
>>7520825what head is this?
>>7527661Not that anon but the hair is from a 50th baroness and the head is from a 25th Scarlett.
>>7521155Could you post a close up of your modified fortnite upper arm "basins"? I thought I'd overdone mine but the elbow is still not bending enough. Now I'm considering cutting off the front all the way up to the swivel hole.>>7527315Yeah, I have Ripcord around here somewhere. I bought him intending to use him as a base for a FO3 power armor custom but I never finished him. Idk if I can remove the Green Stuff without damaging the toy.
>>7527835oh how nice it looks with the whole head framed inside the hair-do. Never would have guess it was Scarlett all along.
>>7517386When will Hasbro finally make a Cobra Commander with the REAL white man unmasked head? Fuck Cobra-La, fuck their current "we don't know" take, we all know what he looked like in the only canon that mattered.They don't even need a new mold, several customizers used 25th Buzzer heads repainteed with a mustache to make it, but Hasbr's probably too cheap, lazy, weak & stupid to go to that much effort to retool it slightly. There was even a 1:6 custom with a removable hood and the face under, but $200 Sideshow figures can't be bothered for that detail or even just a spare head since they're $30 toys with a geek tax markup.Hasbro's old 1992 12" or the space suit figure don't count since they didn't have the correct face. Is this asking far too much of Hasbro for the next CC to have the unmasked head? Are they somehow afraid of pissing off sensitive manchildren by having a terrorist leader be a white male or something? They're pretty SJW so I don't see why but offending people who would get upset over it might costs a whopping $12 in revenue so they will chicken out on that.
>>7528774>>New Cobra CommanderDeadline senpai, I doubt it'll ever come back as it was.
>>7528774Can you repeat that in english?
I built my first Joe-C today. Great White grew up in coastal Massachusetts, spending much of his time in the frigid North Atlantic, and was a Navy Seal before joining the Joes. Almost caused an international incident when he stole a SHARC while on leave and busted an illegal poaching operation that had ties to a local government. Going to get a marauder rig/harness, knife sheath, and pistol holster and paint his pants something more fitting.
>>7529121Welcome to the fold.
>>7517386>All 1:18th lines welcomeThe original Robotix pilot figures were really cool, I thought. I loved how each one was a little different. I also love how there was basically no lore included with the sets so it fueled your own imagination as to what the robots were and who the figures were.The horrid fucking cartoon was utter shit, though. I couldn't watch it as a kid. It would ruin the joy I got from playing with the sets.
>>7529948Never new these existed. I like their helmets. Wonder if they are big enough to use on modern 1:18 figures.
>>7530249The helmets and heads are molded solid with the torso, however the visors actually do flip up, and some are even smoked (depends on the color scheme of the figure, not the mold). The figures were very slightly larger than original 3-1/4 Joes so you may be able to cut them off and hollow them out?
Anons, I've really enjoyed collecting my 1:18's and a big part of that has been getting ideas from the stuff you guys post. Thanks Anons. You're good folks and I enjoy talking with you all.
>>7530008I am digging these... esp the guy on the right.
>>7530664>The figures were very slightly larger than original 3-1/4 JoesI should clarify: they're still 1:18, and Joes were compatible with the vehicle cockpits.
>>7531325Same here anon.
>>7522466 here. I ended up buying Carbide too. It seems I was just partially unlucky with my Omega. He has stiff ankles and very loose feet, unlike Carbide. I cut some plastic off his elbows, I losened one shoulder (the other is too stubborn) and today I started painting him. I'll finish with the black tomorrow and at some point in the future I'll paint lights on him too.Btw if anyone has them, I'd like to see a few close ups of the contents of the loot boxes.
I think I need to buy some new shoes. Bases/transports for figures are so expensive, but I remember using a shoebox as a base-boat as a kid and it was great.
The toys are compatible with Bandai's Action Bases.
>>7535090They look great as base bodies to make articulated SW aliens
>>7535096Whoa. Thanks for the idea.
Big thanks to the anon who suggested Renegades Scarlett. She just came in today and her eyes aren't even fucked! Her face looks a bit waxy and the subdued red of her hair makes her look sun faded, though.
I'm not willing to buy more than one loot box because I have a judgemental miser on my back but I don't know which one to pick. The Rust Bucket looks like a mess so that one is out of the question. Is the Bogey Bag and the Standard Issue curved? I'm not happy with how much Precision is sticking out of theback.
>tfw no such thing as affordable 1:18:(
>>7518996>Why does everyone keep backstabbing me?>Because it's easy. And it does a lotta damage.
>>7521163She's definitely good looking, but man do I wish she had any articulation at all in her torso.
I just dropped so much on Marauders stuff today to make my own versions of a bunch of different actual Joes.
>>7537271I cant wait to see the results anon
Has anyone asked the GIJoeburg guys about the supposed white genocide going on down there?
>>7538092If they're able to collect toys during it I don't think it counts as a genocide.
>>7538177/pol/ says the blacks in South Africa are killing the whites. I like GIJoeburg and its content and was just asking if they are taking the appropiate measures to stay safe.
>>7538209>/pol/ saysfuck off
>>7536150Post her nudes bruh
>>7538454this reminds me I have yet to buy some air cobra pilots.
>>7538452Anon.... did you bring snow inside?
>>7538248That's his mom you are talking about man.But yeah post her nudes
>>7538452What vehicle is that?
>>7538595Basically a Chinese PLA Type 92 (A or B) IFV
>>7538534Balcony. THIS was outside.
>>7538741yup. guard tower is also World Peacekeepers and I have a gunship and hummer as well. This was on the balcony in deeper snow.
I'm trying to build a fantasy HACKs diorama and I'm looking for some larger monsters for them to fight- any recommendations?
>>7539614This guy's pretty big.
>>7539614you can use some of the Mythic Legion big monsters or even some of the standard size goblins.
>>7539737How much are the big guys for me? I have the idea that they are pretty expensive.
>>7539775Like a $100 minimum for trolls.
>>7539614Neca Otachi, I love using that as like a big dragon. There's also the alien queen/other xenos.Cave troll from lord of the rings is cool
>>Well looks lime everything is under control abd the boys got this covered from here.(In the distance) >>RAWAR!>>Sarge we have problem!
>>7539953Did you repaint those eyes or is my Chuckles just plain retarded? Luckily I got some goggles to put on him and hide them.
Isn't there a 1:18 solid snake figure? I can only find 1/6 scale. I want one to go with my bossfight horses and marauders dog
>>7539960The Revol-Mini(mini revoltech) is a little bit bigger than 1:18
>>7539958Not my photo Don't even know what modern post 90s chuckles looks like.
>>7539960Kaiyodo did Venom Snake and Solid Snake in their RevolMini line, but they aren't really compatible with 1:18.
>>7539969Ah. That's the Chuckles that comes with some desert vehicle two pack. It'd b e a cool looking figure, but mine's eyes are looking two wildly different directions, like the Are u a wizard guy.
>>7539967>>7539970Sounds like I'll just be making my own from marauders stuff then. Thanks guys. Speaking of marauders, I thought I saw someone had the "John wick" figure. Where is that on their website? Is it not out yet or only a kickstarter thing?
>>7539990Here's the link>https://www.marauderinc.com/product-p/mtf-ao-bg005-d.htmNo image of the head because I think it's their way of avoiding getting busted for making/using the likeness without paying any for likeness rights.
>>7539990the PoC jungle duke I think has a good likeness to Solid Snake. It comes with a bandana even.
>>7540022Or you can just use the Marauder Headband on whatever head you need
I'm not really into 1:18th or fortnite, but the jazwares stuff continues to be pretty impressive. Anyone know where I can get some cowboy guns?
>>7540043Holy shit I want a cowboy cutie!>doesn't come with revolver/sFuck!
>>7539990>>7540022>>7540037Whatever you do, I look forward to seeing the result.
>>7540043I wasn't interested in this zoomer shit (don't even know what fortnite is about) but this figure looks awesome.
>>7540122>don't even know what fortnite is aboutWhy would you lie on the internet? It's everywhere. I'm an old fuck and have non interest in it, but to bullshit and say you don't know what it is is being so far up your own ass.
>>7540124I honestly don't, I know it is a FPS but don't know the story or why are they building a house in the middle of the battle or the names of any of them. My last FPS was call of duty WaW also I'm not american so what you see everyday might differ to what I see everyday. Have a nice day.
>>7540141Hot damn, thanks. I was ready to buy something else just for the accessories.>>7540122They're all pretty solid, especially for ten bucks, but she's probably my favorite of the 4 or so I have. The coat and other stuff on her shoulders basically don't get in the way at all.
>>7539614>>7539775$55 plus shipping to preorder a 9" cyclops right now.http://storehorsemen-com.3dcartstores.com/MYTHIC-LEGIONS-ARGEMEDES-PRE-ORDER_p_320.html
>>7539993Well that explains why I didn't see him on there>>7540022That's a great suggestion, paint the hair, put an eye patch on him and hes pretty much good to go>>7540057Thanks anon, it's this type of attitude that makes me love this community
Do marauders female heads fit on Male bodies or are they different sized balls?
>>7527366Where can I find these guys? Im looking at the guy with a robot arm
>>7540406>https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/87524The guy with the robot arm
>>7540157I use her as bartender
>>7540621Updates to the club Im working onThe exterior is as good as done. Interior needs work.
>>7540406Bonus shot of the robot arm guys chillin at the club.Yes, you can swap both cyborg arms into a single soldier to make a Genos or adam jensen type of character.
>>7518463praise you man!
>>7540622Not going to do anything with that ATM to make it stand out less and fit in better?
>>7540622>>7540624based. Can you dismount the second floor to access the interior?
>>7540662You mean like every other ATM in life? They're not suppose to fit in. That being said, it could use some grime/weathering
>>7540689It's open back. You access the interior through the back. See pic for reference>>7540692>>7540662I'm not confident enough to make grime/weathering to make it look good. I fear I may just ruin it by applying black smudge everywhere. I might apply decals to the ATM or repaint it. My plan is to recast the ATM for use in other projects. I can then paint that however I like.
>>7538538>>7538248My momma was so fat and evil that her house was House Harkonnen. She is dead now. The miser is my brother with whom I own our current house. He could change the perspective of fans of Arnold J. Rimmer.
Sonya's no longer my only Mortal Kombat representative. I'm pleased to introduce nobody's favorite cop: Stryker!
>>7540999>miser is my brother with whom I own our current house>owning a house>with a siblingfucking shit, that sounds like a living nightmare
>>7540624>>7540621Thanks man, also all of these little liquor bottles look amazing, and the glasses
Got the Flak Bike but for those who weren’t aware, Acid Rain guys are changing due to partnering with a new manufacturer. Nothing big but the point is to make the figures themselves more modular. Not sure how they weren’t already but what’s important to note here is that they aren’t compatible with the previous figures. The pegs are all the wrong size.
hey man remember that guy who used to post images of his IG's and Shocktroopers using one of those finger skater buildings as backround? where is he? Also reposting this image because I was purging my phone and found it and remember I had much fun doing it. It's a "predator view", I lost the previous images for context.
>>7541870How's the bike anyway? I'm still waiting on mine to get delivered. Paint feel less poisonous than on the old tank-mech thing?
>>7541870>Nothing big but the point is to make the figures themselves more modular. Not sure how they weren’t already but what’s important to note here is that they aren’t compatible with the previous figures. The pegs are all the wrong size.That sucks.
>>7541987The bike is tricky to transform even with the instructions. It’s the most complicated to transform— not by much but enough to be noticeable. Not sure what you mean about the poisonous feeling paint. To the touch, it feels exactly like their other mechs in the line including the Stronghold which is what I think you’re referring to.
>>7542806Are the tracks moveable? Also, how hard would it be to give a HISS real tracks like a Mobat or Mauler?
>>7542806Yeah I got mine today. I just feel like I need to wash my hands after touching it before I touch my face. I've never transformed my Fortress because it also feels very stuck. Same with the bike. Would a hair dryer work for loosening it up?
>>7542864Ill let you know in a few weeks. Im in the process of adding moving tracks to a v1 HISS
I only just learned that there's a modern figure of this guy, one of the few Joe figres I had growing up, and I can't find him for anything less than like $70 loose. Curses be to Hasbro for only dropping him in that one figure pack.
>>7543258Fucking forgot image!
>>7542864Tracks are soft and kinda flexible but don’t actually work>>7542894That’s just the texture. Matte paint with textured splatter weathering. The old mechs had a hole in the box so you could feel it —- kind of a marketing point to sell “the war under pollution.” You may just be squirmy about certain textures, my wife’s like that too.
>>7543325It's definitely a combination of the texture and rampant anti-chicom hysteria making me feel like all their paint is irradiated or lead lol.
Anyone know what the black knight looks like
>>7543426Nope. Ive found every figure but the knight. I dont even know if it exists.
>>7543426>>7543796He's a different price point that hasn't found it's way to retail yet.
>>7543796Post pics of the others.
Don't know if the thread's too dead to get an answer, but does MTF typically get in restocks of older product? I went on looking for some of the green with black bodies and they're gone now.
>>7545765They do but things have been slow as they just finished one Kickstarter and are expecting the release of another in the summer.
>>7545765I Sent them an email like a week ago. They said everything out of stock is on a re-stock status but that they are focusing on the kick starter now and that has priority.I've wanted some AKM rifles since last summer when they were gone and they are still out of stock.
>>7546096>>7545966Oh, cool! That's a relief to know that I'm not just completely SOL on my plan to make all the Original 13 Joes.
Thoughts for my thot?
>>7546158Make her lips redder for turboslut
Finally grabbed a 25'th Baroness to give my 50'th a WAY better face. She's got a little paint scuff on the nose though and I may try giving her some eyebrows to help shrink the five head.
Which looks better.
>>7546207>>7546223wtf is the second one supposed to be? lolI like the black one.
How come I never heard of GI Joe's qt chocolate sniper Shooter before?
>>7546399Dunno. She's in the comics and named after Jim Shooter if I'm not mistaken.
