I was fortunate enough to meet Jon S and have a excellent time talking to him about Joes and Transformers.  While all that was going on he bought my ROCC from me.  When I told him that my son would not miss that vehicle he gave me a stack of comics to give to my son in appreciation.  He is an Excellent person to talk to and he is straight forward with his communications.  I'm honoured that I am able to start his Feedback thread here.

Ontario / PoC MECHs at Winners for $12.99

The Winners at McCowan and 401 had the PoC MECHs both Joe and Cobra for $12.99!  They also restocked on the VAMPs and Furys for $14.99 too!

I always wanted a MECH but thought the price of $24.99 was too high, now they are at a great price to own one or more! Check your Winners out for some great Joe Savings!


Customs / Introducing the M.A.T.E.
« on: August 10, 2011, 12:50:46 PM »
I decided for my very first custom to take on the whole "CHROME" phenomenon. Instead of using a vehicle that is near and dear to all of the Joe fans out there, I picked a vehicle that near all of us dislike. I was hoping that giving it a "Chrome" upgrade would make it better.

Without further adieu, I bring you the M.A.T.E., In honor of 2009 CJC H.A.T.E. that started this all.

Mole pod

Yes that is RIGHT! I Chromed a Mole Pod! I hope this will make all the Mole Pod hates give this vehicle a second chance. Please enjoy the Pics as I did take them with my Blackberry. Please be honest, I welcome all comments.

And I took this one with me in the reflection!

I give thanks to 5h4rK for helping me Chrome this beauty!

Ontario / PoC Alphas have been reduced to clear at Walmart
« on: July 05, 2011, 08:15:54 PM »
Walmart has reduced the price of the PoC Alpha wave 1 and 2 vehicles to $12!  I verified this by visiting 3 different Walmarts to confirm the price.  The vehicles in these waves are the Doom Cycle with Storm Rider, Ghost Hawk with Tomahawk, Cobra Ice Cutter with Snow Serpent Officer and A.W.E. Striker with Nightfox.

Now is a time to pick up those vehicles that you were undecided on.
