wow. where has the time gone?

Probably should have started a new thread but I don't know if that's really necessary.

Things seem very quiet... sadly so.

well to fill in anyone who still may care. Things are very busy for me personally. Late October my family welcomed our 6th child. Another daughter which brings the total to 5 girls and 1 boy.

 Actually I'm enjoying some holidays currently and pulled out some of the my toys from storage.
Going to assemble some MegaBlok: Dragon sets with the kids next week during Christmas break but I have to sort them into their sets first.

Had the joes out, but only my second youngest daughter(4) seems interested. Looking at them I'm really thinking that if I ever decide to get back into the swing of collecting I might dump all my other toylines and just focus on 82-89 joes. Went to a collectables store called Cobra Collectables here in Winnipeg on a whim and really enjoyed looking at their setup. I'm not sure when I will have the space or money to get back into collecting but I still think fondly on it.

I hope everyone else here is doing well. I'm not on any social media so I don't know how often I'll be back, so wishing you all Christmas wishes and New Years! Stay safe everyone.

To me this is about 7 years too late. While incredibly cool this to me is a 25th anniversary issue thing. Would have liked to see more molded plastic that can hold up to long time abuse. Display is nice but I also want play-ability. Is anyone getting this? I also thought someone in the fan community made their own version?

Well for me it really was about the vehicles. How can you do a future force when the vehicles are standard molds we've seen?! they totally missed the whole point of it being a "future" force in my opinion. Now that being said they did a decent job with what was available, but to me they probably shouldn't have done it in the first place. If you only cared about the figures then I guess they did alright. Just my 2 cents

That is awesome. I love you guys who can devout time to this. This is exactly what I've thought about doing for the past 10 years, I just can't find the time anymore. Still this is exactly what keeps me interested in this line. The fans passion. Keep it up.

It really is about the vehicles in my opinion, however the vector was really the only thing i liked.
I still love the idea of building a base from other vehicles. Just needs to actually be done decent.
Honestly I don't know if i could do better but the original just seemed underwhelming. I actually didn't complete this set but my cousin did and it was just "meh"
I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Battle Force 2000. Love the original concept but maybe the execution could have been better.
Really have no thoughts on this set so far.

I haven't seen too much movement here lately and with the lack of Joe available I don't expect an upswing. I am still checking here though!

 I just wanted to shout a out an early merry Christmas to everyone! Have a safe and wonderful time with family and friends.

 Hope 2017 brings something to get me hunting again (toy hunting that is)....I've never been real hunting...except or the ladies....and that was before I met my wife..... ;) ... now I'm just rambling... oh look blizzard in the forcast for Christmas and Boxing day! Joy!!

Later  :)

i also miss that thrill of the hunt but it is what it is. I still prefer hunting over ordering on-line or subscription figures and con sets are just way to freakin' expensive. What I don't miss is the scrambling to try and find figures before someone snaps them all just to resell online.
