General Joe Talk / Re: GI Joe: Snake Eyes
« on: January 12, 2019, 10:01:48 AM »
Where's my Short-Fuze origin movie eh?

I've always HATED the whole ninja thing with GI Joe. Storm Shadow was enough. Snake Eyes still packed an UZI at least, Quick Kick was funny in the TV series and I let Jinx pass since the Joes didn't have a real ninja yet. Budo was the start of a long line of BS ninja/kung-fu/whatever characters that had no business in a military toy line. "Oh Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes are popular! Lets do a whole damn ninja team since BF2000 cratered so badly." It was just like what Star Wars is doing with Boba Fett now. He looked cool. "Shit son, let's give him his own TV series and movie to cash in and wreck the mysterious coolness that people liked in the first place." At least Lucas was above that crap.

Considering how this movie is likely to be pretty much a martial arts film, if it's successful enough to spawn sequels, imagine how not GI Joe the future of the franchise will end up. Also, how out of character is this origin film going to be for the franchise. The whole point of GI Joe:ARAH was that it was a TEAM. Can't they take the characters they have and make a decent team movie? I see Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li all over again sadly.

I hope there will be a new line announced by then sometime before the 100th anniversary. Fingers crossed!

Hello from the West Coast. Still alive out here.

Only one new Joe this past year for me. A SA Cobra Officer it took me a month to snipe and cost a fortune. Can't wait for the next recession to drive the ARAH prices back down.

At least Transformers is moving in the right direction. Maybe Hasbro will see the success of the retro Bumblebee stuff and consider some Joe reboot with a bit of retro feel.

I'm still here! Why this site has such harsh password rules I'll never know. :D

I've been more interested in the current Transformers offerings the past couple years. TF is in a second golden age at the moment with all the G1 homages, Devastator, Predaking, Sixshot. Other than the original series, everyone's getting some love. Hell, they redid Abominus! Whod'a thought!?

I posted back in June(?) about o-ring prices since I thought I'd look into filling a couple hole in my SA collection. The vintage stuff is SO expensive now even compared to 5 years ago! Also, there's nothing on CL locally other than the usual people looking for $40 for an old Gung-Ho with paint wear and no weapons.

I keep an eye out though. It's too big a brand to let die but I guess the o-ring renaissance has come and passed and won't likely come again much to my dismay.

Is it just me or is there very little ARAH on eBay right now and what's on there is crazy expensive?

There also was a pretty good episode about the history of Joes in that Netflix toys series!

Customs / Re: Project Flagg by Crimson Canuck
« on: March 19, 2017, 11:32:22 PM »
Cool! Thanks, glad you guys like it. No way I would have done this if I hadn't got the main structure for $20. I don't think i've seen the structure floor by itself for less than $20.

So, my Skystriker was looking a little grungy now that I made my Flagg look a little nicer.

Got some labels from Cobrastickers, and now I've got a like new Skystriker on deck.


Ugh! Just thinking about putting on all those NO STEP stickers is making my brain hurt.

Thanks, I believe I'm only missing a couple of ladders and the armory insert for the inside, I have the ladder for the outside and its twin coming. Actually the ship wheel wasn't too bad, the purge valve is very pricy on its own, but I bought the majority of the inside stuff in a lot (simpler and cheaper shipping). Wanted to get the flag and the net radar but with the plywood under it I don't think I have the room now. Still debating on the fuel tank and car.

Ah yes! I forgot about that damn purge valve.

As I recall the HQ flag is the same part, just with different decals and a different colour (dark grey rather than dark green), if you want to try out the clearance for it. Also, the radar sticks way out the back, you might need to pull the whole thing to the edge of your desk.
