>>8960918You can't just post a pic like that with no contextThis is just a shoop right
>>8960930YeSorry mate, posted it in the last thread and explained it thereMy bad, not trying to troll anyone
>>8960918So how soon do you think the line will die? There's no way Hasbro will fix their shit fast enough.
>>8961028I don't know but if it does dies i can't wait for them to claim "there wasn't enough fan support" even though half the fucking line is impossible to acquire
>>8961045>half the fucking line is impossible to acquirelol at 6 inch problems.
>>8961028If the movie does well enough? 2.5 years post film.If the movie tanks and is just awful? next year.
>>8961062Pathetic scale fags, no real fan of Joes would be this petty.
>>8961062But the retro single carded figures are also hard to find at retail Checkmate atheists
>>89610628 inches from the top not the asshole.
>>8961028Ugh, idk. I basically just need them to crank out Wet Suit, Storm Shadow, Baroness, and the twins, and then I’d be okay with it dying. Although in terms of what you get in each box, it’s easily Hasbro’s best line. Don’t really understand how they’re fucking it up this badly by making mainstream characters so fucking hard to get.
Snek and Red
Twins, Serpentor, Spirit, Shipwreck, Cover Girl, and I’m good. Then the line can die.
>>8960930Read the title anon
>>8961062Implying other scale is doing better.>>8960918How many of the characters do you guys have? Post some pics of the stuff you have.
>>8962323Impatiently waiting for Jaye and Flint from amazon, really expected them to ship early like they did wave 2 last year, considering everyone's already found them in stores. Trying my best to stay away from variants
>>8961070>>8962323>>8961229You are talking to the one anon troling about scale, nobody actually engages in scale wars trolling, hasn't ever been a thing on this board for a decade. Do not reply to the retard.
>>8962367I love that Cobra Commander look. Shame Firefly and SS weren't as cool. >>8961068it'll fail unless they pull a digital mostly release like the new MK movie, which was also shit.
>>8962367Ooooo baby looking NOICE. I still haven't gotten anything fromFirefly/Zartan wave. They'll probably release start of May here. I'll reserve my judgment till I get em in hand. This is my collection so far. Not pictured Gung Ho and other trooper.>>8962395Yeah figured. Won't reply to anymore baits
>>8962323Ive got all of wave 1, wave 2 (royal Cobra Commander), Pimp Destro, and I was lucky enough to get Beach Head, Firefly, and a Viper. Have cobra soldier, zartan, Lady Jaye, and Flint on preorder. And I want Major Bludd really badly too. Still holding out hope for some cobra island repaints of course, but I also really want Storm Shadow, the twins, Alley Viper, and a proper BAT.
>>8962323I have the Joes and Cobra on two different shelves.
>>8962571And the Joes and ninjas.
>>8962323>Implying other scale is doing better.There are way, way more Joes to collect at the 12 and 4 inch sizes. If you want variety, 6 inch won't be the way to go for a long time, if ever.
>>8962571Every time I see this version of CC, he looks like a Visionaries toy at first glance.
>>8962182how to achieve that ass shape?
>>8962818Plastic surgery or genetics
>>8962571Oh man I can't wait for Zartan to get here. I loved pimp daddy on release but prefer the regular version now.>>8962579Is that armored DD on the top shelf? Also no troopers?>>8962489I think Baroness is available on some international websites. Give it a try, might be cheaper than getting one from a scalper. I'm hyped from Bludd as well. Always liked the character and the classified version is looking baller
>>8962818Exercise but a lot of it is also genetics. You can get a really nice ass but a top tier one is genetic or surgery
>>8962571>Storm Shadow sipping his invisible coffee
>>8963042That's tea, you heathen.
>>8962949>Is that armored DD on the top shelf? Yes>Also no troopers?They are still on backorder for me. I missed out on the Hasbro site and used bbts.
>>8963042Yeah I wish we got alternate hands. That would have made this the best line of the year easy. Distribution aside obviously.>>8963077Nice. If you can't get the CI version then try getting the regular release at least. Easily the neatest figs of the line
>>8963133>Easily the neatest figs of the lineThe Marvel stream they just showed a SHIELD agent army builder along with teasing a skrull army builder.The Joes need a cheap army builder like that.The irony was I picked up ADD the same day I had found Beachhead.
>>8962571Whos in yellow on left? Is that an action force?
>>8962579Man I remember how hard it was to find those fucking Red Ninjas and then all of a sudden someone pointed out they were on Gamestop and had been for ages and suddenly I had three of them
>>8964267AIM Soldier (Marvel)
>>8963149how well does his beret stay on?
>>8964481Pretty well. But his hips make him hard to stand at times.
Well, this happened.... anyone have a pair of viper goggles they aren’t using?
>>8963149CI figs were super easy to get in my country but the regular snake eyes and Duke were a pain to find.>>8964267Marvel legends>>8964481Pretty snug>>8965291Hmm..... Try melting a tiny amount of the tip and joining em together?
>>8965291>>8965311yeah get some extra thin Cement Glue paint both broken ends with it and hold it together
I went to the Dollar Tree in my town yesterday, to pick up some stuff, and I briefly looked to see if they had those little statuettes, and they didn’t, sadly.However, I did find some actual legitimate movies there this time around. Sometimes Dollar Tree has a few gold nuggets in their movie “section”. I found some animated DC movies from various years, as well as a few other things.
Do we have an action force thread or we just post about them in here ?
>>8965833What movies did you find anon? Dollar tree was a life save for me during my masters. Any cups, plates and other utilitarian shit I'd buy from them.>>8965878I think it should be ok to post here. Have the valvaverse figs come out yet?
>>8965904I think action force has a june date of release
>>8965912Hmm... I've been eyeing the dude with the skull mask, the bee henchmen and probably Steel Brigade for Joe canon fodder. Rest don't really do much for me
>more Roadblocks pegwarming againGI Broes the line is saved!!!!!??
>>8966000Roadblock is a chad in the comics. I read love his chill big man persona. He should have come with better weapons
>>8966012If you can find the Crossbones chain gun its fits well enough.
>>8965995No slaughter ?
>>8965833Destro looks like a Pinhead clone
>>8965291I don't even know why they made the goggles separate. They should have just been molded onto the helmet.
Anyone else want accessory packs? If they dropped a set of guns and shit along with more hands and heads Id buy it. >>8965878>>8965904>>8965995>>8966113I have Slaughter, A swarm guy, and the add-on for the swarm. I might get the Ares-looking guy and the skull guy depending on how these look once i get them.
>>8966067What company? ML?>>8966113Nah don't like the man.>>8966343Can you post some pics if you have them in hand?
>order firefly and viper>get two vipersSomeone out there is going to lose there shit getting two Fireflys
>>8966404>I have Slaughter, A swarm guy, and the add-on for the swarmShould have said preordered, it's why I'm waiting to get the others. But the second I get them I will be posting comparisons.>ML?Yeah, it's from the Thunderbolts sets and that in its self depends on how your comics shop does toys, mine has loose figures. They had that particular crossbones for sale with his gun twice. Little armory has a gun that might work too.
>>8966566Target or Hasbro? Hasbro sent me two ninjas when I ordered one.
>>8966588I thought Target's listing was no more
What’s the sweet spot for you and your army builders anons? For me duos usually are enough but if I like the figure enough I want that third.
>>89667324-6 depending on the unit.
>>8966732For 6in stuff, I usually aim for three, two generics and a team leader. For smaller scale, I can go a bit overboard but still try to keep it to around 4 for basic units.Old pic is old.
>>8966732Either two to flank a big bad or 5-7 for action scenes.
>>8966732I used to like having three, but I realized I always wanted a main character leading the troops, and the third was always throwing off the symmetry of a display or cluttering the photo. Four is simply too much, so I stick to two.
>>8966732What this guy said, >>8966751The exception is if they are a cheap army builder like the 15 buck army builders Hasbro put out, then I sometimes go up to eight. That said I am the guy with the two different red ninjas, 5 Cobra and 4 Hand.
>>8967394>>8966803>>8966732are vipers easier to find now?I've all but given up on finding these.
>>8967454Hasbro Pulse offered them last week, they sold out in 4 minutes even with a 1 per address rule.
>>8967485some of us used family and POBoxes we had to inflate the number of troopers but you still have to buy them individually
>>8967491And the Pulse premium members cleaned out the stock before public access
>>8967522No it was there, for like 30 seconds. It’s how I got >>8966566
>>8967530Rumor was they dropped like 80% of them on pulse members, by the time I got the email they were gone.
>>8960918>>8960918so the retro line is dead?
>>8967816No, there are 3 more listings discovered in January. along with what /op/ has linked from Feb. They didn't talk about them or reveal anything at that recent Hasbro online stream because they finally got to show the Snake-Eyes movie related stuff and it's toys.“Atlas” (code name)Product number: F2726“Leo” (code name)Product number: F2727“Meteor” (code name)Product number: F2728
>>8967851i hate the secret name shit. what about vehicles?
>>8967851Atlas for sure is Cobra Trooper
>>8967851Codename: En Vogue...because you're never gonna get it.
>>i hate the secret name shit. what about vehicles?https://news.hisstank.com/2021/02/11/new-g-i-joe-retro-line-listing-and-renamed-classified-series-codenames-72191Check there.
Is Hasbro going to do a second run on all CI figures?
>>8965904Yeah, Dollar Tree has some pretty nice stuff at times, especially with utensils and every day stuff. The movies were Batman Unlimted: Animal Instinct, Batman and Harley Quinn, and Teen Titans: Fear Itself. I also got Kung Fu Panda 2 and Two Angry Beavers (it was a four disc set of seasons 1 and 2). They had some other good/goodish/brand-noticeable movies/shows, but I didn’t get them, leaving some stuff for some other poor boys like myself. The other stuff I left for others were some Scooby Doo stuff, Digimon stuff, and a few other things like that I didn’t remember. They had Fast and Furuous movies, but I’m not into those.
>>8968372Technically. Much like Cobra Trooper I’m sure we will see the others with slight changes but essentially is the same toy.
>>8967816I aint seen nothing since feb except hiss tanks. The last i found was duke and commander, not excited by them but hey you take what you can get. Its that damn fang copter i kept looking for that broke me.
>>8969438i wish my walmart had hiss tanks... or anything.
>>8969438Local place has 2 of those for about 25.
HE RETURNS! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGCUolFKrMY
Is Major Bludd another Target debacle since he's part of the CI line?
>>8971148He is allegedly a target exclusive, but there is a slim possibility that a) he won’t sell out online immediately, since target has been limiting exclusive Legends and Power Rangers to 1 per person, and b) Hasbro has started offering target exclusives through Pulse in limited quantities, as seen with Marvel Legends and Power Rangers, also limited 1 per person.Or it could be a complete cluster like it has been. No one is 100% certain.
>>8971157Well they had the Viper and Firefly up and they didn't even last the subscriber hour.
>>8971157There's also that "Yo Joe June", they mentioned CI stuff will be available then. It's possible this Pulse Cobra Viper stuff was just a band aid
>>8961070There are a bunch of people just like Retroblasting.
>>8971331John Warden, when he was last on G.I Joe as lead designer we got PoC/30th. Now he's the Brand Manager (was Brand Manager for Transformers till last year).
>>8971331>He is probably best known to Hasbro fans as the lead designer on all G.I. Joe figures and vehicles from 2006 to 2013: Sigma 6, 25th Anniversary, Rise of Cobra movie toys, Pursuit of Cobra (including original designs Shadow Tracker, Jungle-Viper, Zombie-Viper, and Data-Viper), 30th Anniversary, and Retaliation movie figures. Some of the 50th Anniversary figures were also based on his "concept vault" work. >https://tfwiki.net/wiki/John_Warden
>>8960918You know those 10 poa basic figures they showed off a few days ago? Why didnt they make one of the figures in that line up a B.A.T. ? Think of how easy and cheap it would have been to army build those fucks if they had. Missed opportunity.
>>8971491Providing a cheaper alternative to something that isn't even out yet and people will clamor for probably isn't good business.
>>8971075Chad Warden is back. Please save this mess man
>>8971826Try again, and this time speak like a normal human.
>>8971075>still leading power rangers, and Ghostbusters Worried he’s going to get too stretched
>>8971178It didn’t even pass 5 minutes, which makes sense because they sent out that email
>>8971836So one so far.
>>8971845Not him but I unironically didn't understand what you are trying to say. Do you mean scalper prices? I got all figs through Amazon or local toy stores. We don't really scalp things here and action figures are still very niche
>>8971857Lol, several people here have admitted to paying a bull for a good ol cucking kiddo, so your lie kind of gives away you know what I mean. You buy from an eBay bull and you're a cuck down to the bone.
>>8971873When I said here I meant my country. English isn't my native language so maybe that's why there is the confusion. Action figures are still very niche here so nobody really scalps them or needs to buy from one because there is so little competition for the figures.
>>8971914I was walking about this English-speaking board where people pay their bull for toys.
>Hoarders buying up cases>Scalpers>Covid supply issues>Exclusive contractsThis entire line has the perfect storm of bull.
>>8971483>>8971479>>8971075So Joe is changing teams? Does this mean no more based weed man? Does this mean better distribution?
>>8971187Will it be the entire CI lineup? I already have Beach Head and Firefly. I just want a pair of CI Troopers and Vipers.
>>8973727Sadly we don't know. Just sit tight til June
Wish I could find any figure that isn't Roadblock. Sick of only seeing that motherfucker around. So far, the total number of Joe figures I have is 0.
Did zartan appear in anyone elses pile of loot today? Kinda bummed my trooper didnt come in but whats a few more months right?
>>8973762i have never seen a single joe on the pegs and i have 8 targets within a 30 min drive radius around me
>>8973869both my cobra infantry showed up in pile of loot in last 2 days. ordered zartan somewhere else and got him a month ago
>>8971483but those are the shitty years design-wise
>>8973898>PoC>shittykill yourself quick
>>8971479>>8971483Oh, okay then. Well, I suppose that’s good, since the GI Joe digiresxduring taht time we’re really nice, and I could actually see them in stores.
>>8973897Yeah, i seem to always be busy when shits available ANYWHERE else but hey i got him. How well does the mask fit?
>>8973898nnnnnnnno. just... no. so many great figs, even in the movie lines. especially in the movie lines.
My first-run Snake Eyes has that shitty, wobbly waist joint and it kinda killed my enthusiasm for the whole line. Should I roll the dice and buy another Snake Eyes, or are they all fucked like that?
>>8973955Re-issue in wave 3 is better
>>8973955First run snake eyes was fucked. His knife wouldn't fit in his sheath and had a wobbly waist. Get a new one, and then return the old copy you'll be fine.
>>8973962Any visual differences in the Wave 3 release, or just buy a new one and assume it's not old stock?
>>8973998There’s very minor differences. I think the main one is that the new one doesn’t have the red spot above his visor.
>>8973998The new one doesn't have the red spot above his visor and the knife will be in its sheath as opposed to just in the plastic tray with all the other accessories.
>>8971483>Jungle Viper>Data Viper>Zombie ViperBASED
>>8971842Kingdom sold 40% more than Earthrise (and all the waves arent even out yet) and that was still a line he managed when they worked on Transformers so maybe Hasbro is trying to make that work for other lines...
Heads up lads troopers are up on BBTS so is Zartan https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/135629https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/135621
>>8975574>Kingdom sold 40% more than Earthrisesource on that? Also even if accurate that just showing that lockdowns lifted, toy industry as a whole took about 2 quarters loss, those profits might not reflect a true demand so much as people getting back on track.
>>8973898what a fucking moron.
>>8976240I got the shipping email at the same time as the in stock email. My four troopers are on the way. Already had Zartan from Gamestop, who has been all thenball about getting me joe figures on time.
>>8971075Warden would be a great pick up if he takes over the Retro line. He could really work a small line like that, which mainly just has repaints and a couple of new figures and turn it into something fans can live with. I know a new Cover Girl or a new Zarana would really get people interested.
New Classified figures found in Target's computer:>Jupiter>Scorpio>Zenith>Meteor>Betelgeuse>Rigel>Europa>Centauri>Gamma
>>8976240Just got both out of limbo this week, havent found any joes in 2021 besides a random roadblock at booksamillion.
>>8976874>>8976872Can't wait to never find them.
>>8976912Roadblock has become the biggest cocktease of all time for me. Every Walmart, Target, and Books a Million near me hasn’t gotten any Joes for months, but now they all have a single roadblock. It’s not the cobra island one, or even the redeco. It’s the exact same one from wave 1. He just taunts me at every store.
>>8977026Lucky they still have pegs, mine all went up empty for six months, and then were removed without ever seeing one figure.
>>8977026I see nothing but endless Cobra Commanders, since they put him, fucking yet again, in the case with Flint and Lady Jay. Most places didn't even sell through with that wave that had three of him with Gung Ho and the Red Ninja. Two back to back waves, with almost half the fucking figures being the same CC was fucking stupid. Jesus.
>>8977269See i got lucky with gung ho by finding him at walgreens, went back and they had cc out went back again and again but no red ninja. I passed on CI roadblock, looked too much like a call of duty guy for my tastes, im holding out hope for a wave 1 duke hiding at walgreens but im doubtful.
>>8977293>wave 1 dukeWhy didn't you just get him on Amazon when he was available for months at retail price?
>>8976865He's managing the whole brand (among other brands like Ghost Busters and Power Rangers).
>>8977367Idk, im guessing i thought id run across it soon enough.
>>8976872Do they have any significance or are they just random words being used for the figures? Like can we decipher what the figures coils possibly be from the code names? What were the previous names?
>>8977660I remember some of the first CI figures were codenamed things like "Mayfly" and "Carpenter Bee." Don't think they really have much significance.
>>8977675Stop eating every fucking animal you disease ridden flat face fuck. Anyway won't reply after this. Not worth it.
>>8977660Really the only significance is that they are all different than the names used in previous waves. The other ones used insects instead of these astronomical names.
>>8977684Good. Saves us all from reading your racist schizo garbage.
>>8977675Make us. The coronavirus crisis started by China and was poorly addressed by them.
>>8977026>>8977269Dude what wouldn't give to have pegs warmed by Roadblocks and CCs. All my stores are just using the pegs to hold that Ghostbusters garbage, there's not even any CCs to pegwarm
>>8978899You’re either a retard, a retard, or just plain retarded.
>>8978979It was poorly addressed by America and most other countries too, retard. You probably think the Spanish flu started in Spain. Go back to Parler.
Snake-Eyes is cool
>>8973884I finally saw some on the shelf in my state. Sadly it was one I already had. I will continue looking.
>>8981120Found RB, Scarlett, and two Zartan today...walked out with the RB and Scarlett just to buy some. Half tempted to take back that shitty wave 1 RB that isn't opened yet
>>8973884I found two Baroness some months ago when they were fresh. Bought one, haven't seen another Joe in Target since. I've got about 6 Targets, and there's just empty Joe pegs next to those GB figures. Never even saw a figure on those pegs, literally only saw Baroness.
>>8981127>walked out with the RB and Scarlett just to buy some. Half tempted to take back that shitty wave 1 RB that isn't opened yetWhat I do is buy a rare, bundle the shitty common with it and list it on ebay for 5 more than what the rare goes for. I get my money back and the buyer doesnt feel as fucked, getting 2 figures for what everyone else is paying for 1.
The Cobra Infantry I preordered from Hasbro Pulse shipped!
>>8979287America and most other countries didn't start a pandemic and then failed to contain it.>>8981084Not a fan of the tactical turtleneck.
>>8976872Star Brigade already?
>>8982102I'd kill for an Archer Joe.
Any idea if hasbro will do spirit in the classified or retro line?
>>8982102>didn't start a pandemic and then failed to contain it.Yeah, get mad at the country that failed to contain an outbreak before it existed. Not the countries who had months of notice and still fucked it up. Brain dead take.
Jee Jie Joe
>>8982423Nope, you're still in the GI Joe thread.So yunno. Shut up.
>>8982102Ya, nothing worse than a country whose leader was informed of a possible pandemic and then downplayed it and suggested quack cures like internal lighting and injecting bleach. A country where simple hygienic measures like maintaining distance and mask wearing are politicized and the country is still currently one of the top 5 or 6 countries that continues to be one of the most infected. A country with failing literacy and science which tries to enforce a specific religion despite having no state religion. A country where creationism is taught as part of it's science stream in several of it's balkanized nation-states. Sounds like a shithole to me.
>>8982354I've seen customs.
>>8982722Go fuck yourself retard.
>>8983252Still a GIJoe thread kiddo.
>>8983267You’re still a retard bucko.
>>8961062How are things, anon?
>>8973905Sweet shot mate 8/8 great.
>>8967394They definitely bring out the "commander" in cobra.
Found Zartan and Roadblock on Target pegs today. Are they finally getting their act together?
>>8982983Looks more like Scientology cult member Tom Cruise.
>>8983311Ok sport, welcome to the Joe thread not /pol/
>>8984205Hey, I’m still not sure what thread this is. Would you mind telling me again? I’d really love to be told again what thread this is. I’m very curious.
>>8982672>Jee Jie JoeGlad to see I’m not the only one who ever did this.
>>8984288>I’d really love to be told again what thread this is.Clearly because you keep bringing up unrelated bullshit and get angry when put in your place, so again little one, this is a Joe thread not /pol/
>>8984333>u mad, me calm, u lose, me win
>>8984491The absolute salt for being called out.
BBTS came through today.
>>8984736Nice. My autism almost made me buy two Wenwus for the swords alone.
>>8984736is that the whitest kids u know in the back?
>>8984742Feel that homie. I'm going to be a little pissed if he used two in the movie. >>8984752Yes, last week I started rewatching them.
>>8984742What was the consensus on Kamakura any way? As a character and as toys, because toywise he always seemed like a really generic design compared to other Joe and Cobra ninjas.
>>8984736I'm just burnt out with this line. I have Zartan and the troopers just piled up on a side table. Fuck Hasbro for killing all the hype.
>>8984517>me calm, you mad>againWhy don’t you tell me to cope harder, or seethe more? Continuing to respond must mean I’m super angry, right? But you’re not angry at all, you’re just replying for fun? Why don’t you tell me this is the GI Joe thread again, since I clearly missed it the first thirty times? Or does that break your programming?
>>8985043Lol, all because we dont want your /pol/ trash opinion. That whole paragraph because we put you in your place. Yo Joe poltard.
>>8985111>NO YOUR MAD NOT LETRING ME BOG THE WHOLE THREAD DOWN WITH LOSER TRUMP THEORYYeah kiddo, we are all the mad ones, not you who consistantly shit up a thread for a garbage opinion.I could easily see CC having an entire troll division.>The GIJoes are a terrorist plot to bring black people and the chinese virus to our streets > They claim to be "Peace makers" but they are highly organized militarized terrorist.>Cobra wants to free you from the misandry, JOIN COBRA
>>8985056Let’s take a look at who you initially responded to.Right here >>8982423, claiming China isn’t hiding some big conspiracy regarding COVIDAnd your first response here >>8982722But now you’re still going back to attack the dude who said it WASN’T a conspiracy? You’re a bigger retard than I thought. I won’t be responding further, I have no interest in talking to someone who learned to read from a McDonald’s menu.
>>8985222>I won’t be responding further, I have no interest in talking to someone who learned to read from a McDonald’s menu.Thank fucking christ, all we have been trying to do was shut you up about non Joe buisness.COBRACOBRACOBRACOBRACOBRA
>>8985240I never heard of any WHO figures in the Joe line, are they new? Are they a new faction being added to the classified line?
>>8985242Yr right, im sorry for pot stirring. Ill delete it.
>>8985242Ok all gone.
>>8985233>non Joe buisness.Learn to spell, Joetard
>>8985248Ah let him police the thread, its devolved into a freakshow.
>>8985248>Cant argue the point, point out the argument

>>8985266I really want it, but then chances it coming to anything other then ebay is low so I'm not going to give it a second look.
>>8985266>around the worldI wonder what that means. That two foot long rocket gun still pisses me off, complete misinterpretation by the designer
>>8985322Here’s hoping it means Pulse is going to get some stock of this guy, instead of being a Target exclusive again.
>>8985337It will probably be on both, but everyone will try to order from pulse because target sells out in seconds (thanks to bots) and has a habit of randomly canceling orders
>>8984967Aside from Slice and Dice, I never cared for any other of the side ninjas unless they were OG Storm Shadow repaints.
>>8984967Despite the ninjas being what got me into the brand, I don't like the idea of recruiting people specifically to be ninjas and having a faction war, it might as well be a different brand from GI Joe at that point. It devalues the silliness of Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow to me.
>>8985222I am >>8982722, and no others. No rona talk or wuflu rhetoric. Keep it clean so that we actually have a leg to stand on when it's time to call out SE Origin for being a genuine act of xenophobia.You get everyone in here saying chink and China virus, no one's going to take us seriously anymore, and GI Joe will just be used to mock you and piss on the corpse of your childhood indefinitely.
>>8984742Storm Shadow has the red ninjas, SE was jelly and put out fliers to recruit green ninjas, and Kamakura's the only one who showed up. Really tho, the apprentices, especially how they're presented in the movie/promotional comics, felt like bring your kid to work day, except your kid can and probably will die at work. There's a reason why there are so many red ninjas.
>>8985518Jesus Christ, go away already you fucking moron. Take your own advice and talk about Joe stuff.
>>8985537Are you sad now that you know you've been screeching at someone else this whole time? Be good for the babysitter, I can't watch you all the time.
>>8985500>>8985535Ninja Force was basically Snake Eyes' crew, along with Storm Shadow. It's a cool idea, but it strays so far from GI Joe that it gets a little comical. With that said, they can always be ignored when they're not the center of attention in a line.
>>8985500I’m pretty sure if the Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow, Arashikage Clan, and other ninja-related stuff was it’s own things, and Hasbro and who all else handled it well, it could strive on its own. Especially if it were a video game or a series of them, or like a little tv series or something like that. I mean, the best part of GI Joe: Resolute was the Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow stuff.
>>8985602>best part of GI Joe: Resolute was the Snake-Eyes and Storm ShadowThe fights were great and the seven steps nonsense was fun, but I much prefer a more levelheaded Storm Shadow rather than "I hate you, that's all"
>>8985535There’s also Jinx. She was handled well in G.I. Joe Renegades. She wasn’t just thrown in there, she’s actually fairly important to the plot.
>>8985337>PulseCan't wait to get that email 20 minutes after it already sells out
>>8985609Yeah, I agree that Storm Shadow was one dimensional in that, and even in the behind-the-scenes stuff, the makers of it said that, if they were given more time to work with (because, originally, it was a series of online shorts that were later edited together) they would’ve made the characters more meaningful. And that they had to pretty much file the characters down into their basic traits, and, from the layman’s perspective, Storm Shadow is just Snake-Eyes archenemy. They kind of had to boil all the characters down, to put it simply, since they didn’t have a season or an hour and a half or more to work with, and they wanted to put in as many fan favorites as they could/with what characters they were allowed to fully use and work with.
>>8985614Bruh, did gen pop even get a chance to get one.
>>8985537>>8985543Would you two shut the fuck up about your /pol/ shit. We're over here sad Bludd will sell out in seconds if we even get a chance to get it.
>>8985266I'm more angry over the Retro Collection. I've never once seen it in person at retail and never managed to get it off of Walmart's website. And most of the figures have been a complete kick in the nuts.>re-pop of the 50th 3-pack Duke instead of a new figure>waste the new figure money on an ugly Fang Pilot figure>Re-pop the Hascon Cobra Commander instead of Ultimate Cobra Commander>Re-pop 50th Storm Shadow instead of Ultimate Storm Shadow>Re-pop 50th Snake Eyes to be a Commando figure, but then don't give him his Commando head. It should have just been a re-pop of Ultimate Snake Eyes.>make Roadblock with a Classified head and not loaded to even look like his classic look.>Give us a new Scarlett but make her only out of parts from 50th. The only saving grace was the new head.>Re-pop 50th Baroness but don't give her a new head.The only good decisions I've seen in the line are the new Scarlett head, the new Hiss Driver, the new Crankcase, the re-pop of 50th Lady Jaye, and the re-pop of 50th Destro. The vehicles are mostly good also.
>>8985647I am genuinely trying to talk about Joes. I can’t help it that this thread went to shit a long time ago. Someone should call it a day and start a new one.
>>8985659>>the new Scarlett headI'd been waiting for a head like that.
>>8985666Did you have to do any modifications to make the heads work on those bodies? I'm thinking of getting one and either putting her head on the 25th body or Resolute, or maybe even 50th body.
>>8985768The Resolute one needed to be cut down as it's taller (like the RoC Reactive Armor scarlett's would be). But shorter necks like the Renegades, RoC blue Scarlett (that the SDCC one on the right shares a body with) are fine. Regardless I gave them all surgery to use Boss Fight Studio's female figure double bar Ball joints pieces. What a drill.
>>8985610Yeah, I think it's a matter of how you work it into the plot. GI Joe just recruiting jr ninjas is kinda weird, but when the ninja make it their business and forcibly get themselves involved, I can see the reluctant recruitment coming later. Has Kamakura always just been a kid SE picked up? Haven't seen all of Sigma 6, but the impression I got from Kamakura was comically incompetent. Thought I remembered something from old filecards mentioning he was previously in a branch of the army before SE grabbed him, but I couldn't find it.
>>8986185Kamakura was from the Devil's Due Joe comics, he was Sean Collins, a kid from the original Marvel comics, grown up and training as Snake Eyes' apprentice. There was a mini telling his origin of how he joined the army, and after Firefly killed the rest of his unit, he trained as a ninja under Snake Eyes, whose first apprentice was also killed by Firefly. Hasbro liked him enough to make several toys, and put him in Sigma 6 as well.In Hama's continuation of the comics, Collins becomes the new Snake Eyes instead of becoming Kamakura.
>>8986185>>8986339Snake Eyes died in a big dumb final battle thing with Serpentor that was sort of underwhelming because it was envisioned as a Transformers crossover that was nixed but still had a giant robotic eye as part of an alien... thing we never saw. It was all kind of weird.Also Hama decided to kill Snake Eyes because the friend he based him off of had passed away. So that's actually really sad.
>>8986378>Snake Eyes died in a big dumb final battle thing with Serpentor that was sort of underwhelming because it was envisioned as a Transformers crossover that was nixed but still had a giant robotic eye as part of an alien... thing we never saw. It was all kind of weird.And doubly underwhelming because Snake Eyes and Serpentor don't die on panel, we're just assured they're really dead, so readers can't believe it's real, even years afterwards.>Also Hama decided to kill Snake Eyes because the friend he based him off of had passed away. So that's actually really sad.Didn't know that, and that is sad.
>>8983679Me? Sorry I'm living in a civilized and enlightened country. Vaxxed, and watching you idiots kill yourselves.
>>8983934 I think both figures use Falcon's head.
>>8986468The one in black does, the grey suit custom uses the Renegades Duke head with modified hair.
>>8981084I'd buy this in a heartbeat over the visor look.
>>8986463Yup, still mad ;)
>>8986339Okay, so he has some genuine value to be added to the team, at least in Devil's Due. It's just the "General Audience" stuff that makes him out to be such a goober.
>>8986185>>8986339He was also in GI Joe: Valor Vs. Venom, as well as a playable character in GI Joe: Rise of Cobra - The Game.
>>8986863>It's just the "General Audience" stuff that makes him out to be such a goober.Couldn’t that be said for a lot of G.I. Joe and Cobra characters? Like, in some media, Cobra is depicted as being borderline incompetent as an organization that has to resort to childish gimmicks to get anything remotely done. And main members of Cobra and the Joes being kept under lockdown by a guy who has an obsession with toys, and Baroness was in a bikini for some reason. And playing some version of football for whatever reason.And being defeated by monkeys/gorillas/apes. Somehow being outclassed for a bit by a drug dealer. And I’m sure there’s more, but I can’t remember at the moment.
>>8985659Are these even sought after? I see the same 3 or 4 every time i go to walmart
>>8987080A number of them are being scalped for $30 to $50+. The Scarlett seems to be the most sought after. The Lady Jaye's also a good one, since it's a face printing update of the 50th, which had really wonky eyes. And the Destro's also got some updated paint apps. The only real awful useless figure is the new Duke.
>>8987105Duke has the silly scream face tho, not entirely useless. Can't believe they'd use those shitty arms again though.
>>8982955fantasy>Ya, nothing worse than a country whose leader was informed of a possible pandemic and then downplayed itreality>ban travel to and from china where pandemic originated>get called a racist and watch as your opposition adopt a "hug a chink" policy>hordes of liberals gather together in close quarters without masks to burn the entire country down>oh gee it's the orange man's fault this happenedTrust the science, but ignore cause and effect, amirite?
>>8987238I'm confused, when did this happen in Joe cannon? I've never heard of this plot in any cartoon, comic, or packaging. Was this when Zartan was the president in the last Joe movie?Sorry was that policing the thread too much for the limp wristed?Also, Major Bludd first appeared in 1983.A version of Major Bludd was released as part of the Super Sonic Fighters line in 1991. Another version of Major Bludd was released in 1994 as part of the Battle Corps line. The 2000 figure is a repaint of his Sonic Fighters uniform mostly brown, black, and silver in some parts. The 2003 figure uses the 94 head and another figure mold in the Python Patrol color scheme. The 2005 JvC/ST/VvV update uses the Blackout mold, Firefly arms, and a new head w/ removable helmet. The 2006 version is part of the 2006 Joe Con Mercenaries set. The first 25th/Modern Era Bludd figure uses the first 25th Zartan mold, the right arm that is reminiscent of the V1 figure. Later Modern-Era versions have him in his true V1 mold and a cartoon version.Now I have said more words than you will ever about JOes since it's apparent your here for some Dumpf loser wank. Cobra Commander loses less than that loser and he looks a lot better. COBRA
>>8987212Yeah duke really isnt good and i dont care tor CC either but as a joe fan ive learned to take what i can get. What kills me is that snake eyes and storm shadow come Packed with tons of gear and ol shell face gets a zapper and pokey stick. Why not a cape or alt head or something.
IDW RAH went down hill the second Serpentor and Snake-Eyes died. Like I knew Hama was doing it for the paycheck for years at that point but it just stopped even seeming like he pretended to care at that point.
>>8987357I could tell that this run was a cash in. All of his other ideas fell flat and him returning to GI Joe was a sort of last ditch effort. I dont thinks its done out of resentment, but he doesnt seem to care much about it anymore
>>8986901Those sound like mostly complaints about the DIC cartoon, which was mostly aimed at a younger audience. Everyone who was happy that they got Cobra Commander back, and Chris Latta was still voicing him, got to then see him make Cobra become more incompetent than they'd ever been in the Sunbow cartoon.>and Baroness was in a bikini for some reason.There are moments in life when it's best to not ask questions and just go with it. Sunbow knew exactly what they were doing.
>>8987357>>8987842At first when several new versions of Snake Eyes appeared, and it looked like Hama was doing a ninja homage to the Reign of the Supermen, I was interested, but the book has been spinning it's wheels without really getting anywhere, and Hama seems really committed to Snake Eyes and Serpentor being really dead this time.Some of the new characters do seem to be an attempt at reaching a female audience, no idea if it's working, but he's doing it again with the next story arc.
>>8987344>Why not a cape or alt head or something.I think the obvious answer is that whoever's in charge of the line just lazily repacked and repainted the most recently used versions of certain characters. The most recent version of Cobra Commander was the Hascon version, which the Retro Figure essentially is, therefore only comes with the pistol. It should have been a re-pop of Ultimate Cobra Commander with 50th's accessories.I'm not sure why Hasbro is repopping only from these recent molds, is there a company mandate? Did they not save the old molds like they did with Star Wars? I know there was mention by them of destroying them a few years back on the basis of it being really easy to remake them if they so wished.
I hope the other Dreadnoks get Classified figures soon.
I wonder how long before we get a Scarface variant of the Cobra soldier.
>>8988229Target exclusive, leaker told me.
>>8986404Yeah I mean two characters like that die by falling off panel down a big black hole is "this guy is coming back for sure" 101. I'm surprised Hama wants to convince us he's dead for real. I wonder if he has a resurrection in the back pocket in case of low sales or simply if Hasbro demands it. Maybe he has the return planned for the very last issue to sort of tie in with the LAST last issue we had being from his POV. It all ends with Cobra defeated and Snake-Eyes and Scarlett going off into the sunset or something? I dunno.
Reminder next month is Yo Joe June:>There's a bunch of Retro Collection figures waiting to be revealedThe listings are:Atlas- Cobra Trooper, probably the Hascon version from pic relatedLeo- UnknownMeteor- Unknown but shares the name of an upcoming Classified figure.Moonshine/Zenith- UnknownEarth- Another Snake Eyes(might be a repack from wave 1)Unknown vehicle and figure set-https://news.hisstank.com/2021/01/02/g-i-joe-retro-line-wave-4-listed-at-idee-und-spiel-71731https://news.hisstank.com/2021/02/11/new-g-i-joe-retro-line-listing-and-renamed-classified-series-codenames-72191>There will be an announcement regarding the Cobra Island figures being re-released.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIWlml-BmoY
>>8989906>There will be an announcement regarding the Cobra Island figures being re-released.I don’t care anymore they fucked up so much I don’t take any hope
>>8988986I get the feeling Hasbro are very hands-off with Hama's book and just letting him do what he wants, but he may change course in the future if sales need a boost and he wants to keep the book going. A story about Snake Eyes and Serpentor having to work together to survive and find their way back to the surface sounds more fun than anything that's happened since they 'died'.
>>8989906Why is CC's cobra emblem wearing a mickey mouse hat?
>>8990762Old Convention exclusive based on a paint error from the '80s line
>>8990762To replicate the early version of Cobra Commander's original figure, which had the Cobra emblem's eyes very large, before Hasbro revised it.
What the Retro Collection should have been.
>>8989906Cool, more shit Walmart will cancel from my preorders.
>>8990854That's cool, but wouldn't it be better if Road Block had zero foot articulation?
>>8989906>Cobra Island figures being re-released.Can't wait for them to be re released at target and not get shit again
Is there a slot for Zartan's pistol or is he just meant to hold it?
>>8990915Peg on backpack, put it through trigger guard
>>8990848>inevitable “retro” packed Classified figures when
>>8990605I should have mentioned that Hama did basically say Hasbro doesn't care who is Snake Eyes, as long as there is a Snake Eyes. So even though I'm the one who mentioned it, I highly doubt they'd make him do anything about it.Anyway, as far as last issue reveal, I'm just thinking he's in a super secret hospital in a coma and he wakes up for the end. That kind of thing. Again, I doubt it. But we both agree that ending screamed "to be continued."
>>8991224I still cannot fathom how anyone would replace that cute-ass headsculpt with a fucking Marvel Legend
>>8991227Marvel Brain rot
>>8991227Maybe being less of a cunt will help.
>>8991227I like plenty (well, several) of Marvel Legends heads, but I agree; the original Scarlett is cute as fuck. Really don't like what they did with the variant's face.
>>8991227As someone who loves true gingers I agree. That delicious pale skin and orange hair is so rarely represented.
>>8985518you sound like a complete pussy. why are you in a military toy thread
>>8991559In the tiny probability that you actually believe the things you say, you are a genuine fucking retard. Nobody wants Japanese SE or GI Woke. But this is not the fucking place to talk about rona or the vaccine, and it's absolutely not the time for Joe fans to be throwing around "chink" or "wuflu".The company I worked for had an absolute cunt in a manager position for 13 years. Most of the people who would phone in complaints were retarded, like you, and couldn't help but to use "nigger" in their phone call. She had to physically assault someone before they took any complaints about her seriously.tl;dr, keep it up and you can expect to be met with the same bullshit you're bitching about ad nauseam
When I go to Dollar Tree tomorrow/today (it’s already 1 AM and I haven’t eaten supper yet) to pick some stuff up, I might go and see if any of these little things are there this time.Last time they weren’t, and it wasn’t that long ago, so, I already have a feeling they won’t have them yet.
>>8992128Replying to my own post, but it’s strange how they didn’t include Storm Shadow, but they did include a Red Ninja.Also, has anyone, besides the person who origally posted about these being at Dollar Tree, seen or found any yet?
>>8992132Forgot to attach the image.
>>8992132It wouldn't be as strange to me if not for SS being on the packaging. Would be less strange if they just did the red ninja in white. Wouldn't be any more jarring than the disconnect between the retro figs and their packaging anyway.
>>8991775This. I'm sick of my legitimate grievances getting lumped into easily deflected racist/sexist/whateverist rhetoric that pr wants to use to ignore criticism for big product.
>>8992132they were found at .99 store first
>>8992136These look like shit, and don't even have anything noteworthy about them. They're not even worth buying ironically, just because they're cheap. You're still throwing your money away.
>>8992136>>8992132I took that picture - I'm on the East Coast, for what its worth.
I'm usually not the kind of dipshit to take photos of shelves, but I was genuinely shocked to see these at Walmart.
>>8993202Funny you say that I just got my notice I'm getting Flint and LJ from Gamestop, they should arrive tomorrow or monday.
>>8993202The only Joe I've ever seen at walmart was a Cobra Commander in a smashed box
Too scared to move their hips forward, and I'm pretty sure the pins in Jaye's elbows are just twisting about inside. Otherwise, everything's pretty solid. Faces look better than I expected.>>8993290I'm debating whether to cancel my amazon order now. If I end up breaking something, I'd like to have backups. >>8993312I saw the end cap display once last year, and up until now, nothing else.
>>8992902Because they’re small, the right size for cheap little desk knickknacks, they’re cheap (you could buy the whole set for less than the price of whatever they’re naming the 3.75 series now), and probably very easy to clean, and if they get knocked over, yo how iOS rings have y I spend time posing them again or having to force them in a standing position that looks okay. Plus I have no reason to buy any of the Classified series, because Classified is overly expensive, and I wouldn’t actually play with them, they’d just end up gathering dust or in some storage bin.The latest GI Joe product I actually bought was the newest game, GI Joe: Operation Blackout, because I can actually play with that, and it’s big like it takes up space (besides digital) and doesn’t collect dust, and I got the Digital Dekuxe version for a price cheaper than most Classified series toys.
>>8993324>Too scared to move their hips forward, and I'm pretty sure the pins in Jaye's elbows are just twisting about inside.Have you tried giving her a boiling hot bath? That fixed my Zartan
>>8993485>yo how iOS rings have y I I have no idea what my autocorrect was trying to do to those words.
>>8993491>boiling hot bathLike, in a deep fryer or...?
>>8993494>boiling hot bathWater is implied>deep fryerOil is impliedThere's a big temperature difference here.
>>8993491Will be hitting them with a hair dryer this weekend. Also might pop Jaye's legs off and shave down the slots inside the hips, her legs spread out very far unless you utilize the drop down hinge.
Well, I may not have found an actual Baroness, but I now have a "Day off with Destro" Baroness.>What in the Hell isssssssss happening in here?
Im about to start a collection of classified g.i. joe and i wonder if you guys would rather pick the mezco destro or the regular classified gijoe version if you were me
>>8993515If Mezco wasn’t going to take 6 years to complete the core Cobra cast I’d go with them. As is by the time we get Zarathustra we’ll be asking for Destro v2
>>8993515You might as well get both. Classified version is available now and only $20 and he's not a bad figure by any stretch. Mezco will take forever to release a core set of characters and this way you can at least substitute out the Classified versions as Mezco's come out if you want.
>>8993324I'm sure it's been mentioned already by someone but that shotgun makes absolutely no sense
>>8993553I don't really mind the fact that it doesn't make any sense realistically, I just hate that it's shaped like a rectangle
>>8993324>>8993553 Modified and thicker HK CAWS?
>>8990848pretty sad this is not the case
>>8993202Saw them at Walmart too but they only had one case out. Then Target next door actually had Zartan and Troopers.
>>8994198Uhm, Mr J Fox? I'm a huge fan of your work in The Frighteners.
Anyone know if the Fortnight Snake Eyes is basically the toy accurate box set Snake Eyes but with Fortnite accessories?
>>8994247Fortnite Snake Eyes is an all new deco based on his appearance in Fortnite. The surface details are the same so its the same mold, but he's got the Joe logo on the shoulders, silver cel shaded visor, grey on the pants etc etc. This would be a whole new deco.
Dollar Tree didn’t have the things.
>>8993515Get the classified version. Great figure
Is there a website or a ebay store where i can find custom accesories/clothes like a cape for 1/12 military figure like gi joe or marvel legends ?
>>8995084Yeah, are you looking for wired stuff or non-wired? hide12341234-1 has a good selection of wired capes, I can post more pictures of the others I have, rickhor409 is another.
>>8995169He is another, they do a shit load of different capes, cloaks, shirts, jackets, and stuff for both specific characters and non-specific stuff.
>>8992132I have twice, i passed so some jerk could get them and raise the price. No, really i just didnt like the paint jobs so i got playmobil blind bags instead.
>>8994247That was a good movie but family ties is the place to see him really show his range as a thespian.
>>8995244Meant for 8994233
So now that Lady Jaye is in stores, how long until we get the rest of her male harem? IE Shipwreck, Alpine, and Captain Gridiron?
>>8997177If we get two-packs, I'd be down with a DIC themed two pack with Lady Jaye and Captain Gridiron. Bonus points if they give Gridiron a brand new look to modernize him.
>>8997183We'll never get Gridiron and Alpine and we'll be lucky if we get Shipwreck, given how blotched the line has been handled and even then, Shipwreck will most likely be the crappy long shoreman version and not the trademark soldier version.
>>8994247It's slightly different but still close enough to pass as a proper Snake Eyes if the unpainted turd sold at retail triggers you
Anyone wish, instead of vehicles, we could be getting box sets (3-4 figures) for the vintage line to both allow people to army build but also get rare as fuck figures from the sub club into general circulation at retail?
>>8997298I don't think it has to be one or the other. But yeah, 3+ packs are some of my favorite shit. Pic related was the era I finally got to pick out my own Joes in a store after being teased with hand-me-downs for the first 5-6 years of my life. Besides the Street Fighter figs, but I don't remember that much at all. I've always wanted vehicles to come with enough figures for all the seats. Imagine if every vehicle came with the driver but also a trooper or Viper, or Steel Brigade for Joe vehicles. Fuck, they could throw almost any random factory extras in with their vehicles, and that shit might not rot on the shelves like it does. I think making vehicles a little more expensive but including more figures would work out better for everyone overall, but perhaps I'm stupid. The sub figures and possibly some of their unique molds were licensed exclusively to the club I think. My wording might not be exactly right, but those figures may be legally iffy for Hasbro to reproduce. Not that it should matter, but that's what the reason would be. Which is a shame, even though I have that club Slice, I wanna see him in neon orange still.
Heating the elbow did jack shit, just sliced through one side of each peg and pulled the elbow off. Looked like a goddamn Lego technic gear, fit together so snugly, I don't know how the other one is moving fine. Smoothed down the teeth a little and it still wouldn't budge, so I smoothed them down almost entirely. A little loose now and I haven't resecured the pin to the other side of the arm, but it worse I guess. First pinless figure I've gotten, and if they're all gonna have similar problems, I don't like it
>>8997888I was already against pinless since I like customizing but this was something I was afraid of. Hasbro’s QC is not ideal for something you can’t fix yourself
We need a new thread
