Well, I can clearly see that the Joe wrestling this year in going to be a blast.  Many props to Mike for the custom wrestlers.

Is that a Beach Head I see?  Oooh I think it is  :D

Hey Scramble,
All great points, however the game only gives you 'so many' options to put things in.... as for pants, again, it's a wrestling game, so tights are usually the main option of the game.

The colors may be off on the CPU as well..... not sure.

I'm sure to have some free time all of next week, maybe I should add a few more to your list...
I already made a decent Carmen Electra....I know, I know...she's not a GIJoe...but she's freakin' Carmen Electra!

Crazy Legs is too tough. I already tried.

Chuckles is too easy....... and it's Chuckles! :lol:

He's my 'reserve list'...... if I run out of time, I can make him easily.

PS - Loop, No carmen Electra.

The prices on 'newer' items like this one is TOO high for used product.
You can ALWAYS get it cheaper somewhere else - guaranteed.
If the game is a year or 2 old - then you should be able to get a good deal there - but anytthing in a 1-8 month age is only about 5 or 7 bucks cheaper than a new one.

Trust me Dave, you could most likely grab it for $30.00 CND elsewhere.

Fair enough. I'll swing by Blockbuster and Rogers this weekend and see if they have a used copy for $30.ish.  :thumbsup:

I was really wondering if there was some sort of story like they did something crappy to you and if that were the case then I would re-think shopping there.

No. Just they rip off people for their games (try selling them something), and you can only ever get 'credit' no money.

An indie store is your best bet. Game Centre in Toronto offers the best prices in the city, bar none. They'll usually knock at least $15 off the price on used vs new. (i.e. a $70 game will cost $50) and after 2 months, you'll start seeing the same game for $40 and eventually after 6-7 months it will sell for $20 to $30.

But they also won't give you much for your games. They make a smaller margin than EB but they get a LOT of business.

I have an EB Games story that might make you guys laugh at them. Last year (Feb 2 2004 to be exact) I was in EB Games with Sheryl in line to buy a game and the guy in front of me turned in a bunch of crap games in one of those trade 3 game a new game on preorder. I noticed they excepted his copy of Fantavision so I asked what was up since I couldn't trade mine before.

Turns out the guy worked there, it was his day off and EB Games was running a new special that started that day and they forgot to put the disclaimer "certain applications apply" or whatever the disclaimer phrase is that means they won't take junk.

So this employee was exploiting this fault and the guys behind the counter were laughing so I told them I'd be back in half an hour. Sheryl and I swung home and grabbed a bunch of crap games (including Fantavision) and traded them in for 1 preorder Halo 2 for my brother as a bonus birthday gift and a copy of Grand Turismo 4 for me.

My brother got his game as soon as it came out and back in December I got sick of the delays and they ended up giving me a nice shiny new copy of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

Oh, I told my brother about the deal but by the time he got to the store the posters were changed and they would no longer take crap games.
That's my EB story. Not as cool as Mike's Future Shop story, but it's up there.
