Same for me, I would be very interested but it would depend on time and place.  So little free time at this point.

I have bought several copies of the comics over the years, from the original releases, to the Graphic Novel collections.  This one looks amazing, and when comparing the cost of what i have spent in the past, isn't outrageous.  That being said,  I now have a digital file of all of them, and don't have the space that another set would take up.  I think I ended up boxing up all of my previous copies and have them tucked away in the attic or the back of a closet.

WOW, that is a bit of a shock.  He was well known to anyone in the early days of JoeCanuck. My condolenses to his wife and family.

Just WOW!

Crazy - and all of this because of some little plastic army men we fell in love with in the early 80's.

So I picked up the HMS last night.  Didn't have a chance to open it yet.  Anyone else get one?  Thoughts?

Agreed on the 60th figures - the accessories are the selling features.  The figures I don't really have a desire for, and the price tag of a deluxe figure has left me skipping them.  But if they ever go on sale (maybe on Amazon) I would grab them.

Techno-viper is a great figure, just wish the hose was a cm or two longer.   And yes Airborne is way better in hand,  not a single quality control issue, and the paint applications are crisp.  Only gripe is his gun.

The increase in prices at TRU is insulting.  It isn't like the stock is flying off their shelves.  And with the current case assortment of a single figure per case, there are going to be some serious peg warmers.  They need to learn how to discount and move stale merchandise.  Target is the king in the US at getting older peg warmers to fly off the shelf.

Wreckage and the Tiger Paw look OK, I am in for 1 of these repaints.
I hope they fix the sloppiness of the Firefly mold.

I just saw a side by side of the Classified and Retro Cobra EEL - I have to say, the Retro darker colour really makes the figure POP.  I really wish they would have gone with a ARAH style backpack and gun.  Sadly I think the Snow serpent is two bright.
And this is the version of Beachhead I have been hoping for.

I will hopefully be able to get 2 of them, this was an absolute fav vehicle in the ARAH days.  I am looking forward to the other three figures as they were near impossible to get at a normal price - I had to pay secondary pricing on the EEL.  And only got the other two by luck.  Amazon canceled my pre-order for the snow serpent the day it was suppose to ship, screwing me out of being able to order it anywhere else.  Also was the last time I pre-ordered anything from Amazon.

Made me feel like I was in a Seinfeld episode.

Jerry : I don't understand. Do you have my reservation?

Rental Car Agent : We have your reservation, we just ran out of cars.

Jerry : But the reservation keeps the car here. That's why you have the reservation.

Rental Car Agent : I think I know why we have reservations.

Jerry : I don't think you do. You see, you know how to *take* the reservation, you just don't know how to *hold* the reservation. And that's really the most important part of the reservation: the holding. Anybody can just take them.

Also the vamp is heavier than I expected.  It has an incredible solid feel.  Also working suspension!  Rubber tires, working winch, tow hitch (super excited about what will go behind it),  this list of cool stuff goes on and on.   Also next to the RAM, it looks like 1982 all over again!  I have heard the snow cat/thunder machine are expected next, but this really makes me with for the rest of the 82 vehicles - MOBAT, HAL etc.
