Lightbulb Power Team Elite by M&C Toys database?

PTE database?
I was wondering if you guys were interested in making a database for PTE like Yojoe has for G.I. Joe.
I could contribute pictures to one.
As far as I know no one has attempted to make on yet.
Only Generals Joes has some reviews...
http://www.generalsjoes.com/reviews/pte.html

Staff add on: We would like to go forward with this idea. Any help is appreciated. Please check to see if an item is done if you want to contribute.

This is an interesting concept. I think it's a pretty good idea myself. Question is, do you do it within a site or put out for it's own site? I don't know if there is enough product or interest in the line for it's own site.

This is something that NSA will have to look over. I guess it really depends on how much space it takes up. I would think not too much honestly considering how much product they have. I see SSHQ does have a small amount of PTE items. They have two Humvees and a Howitzer. With luck we could get a little extra help from over seas for the tough to get items. Now, embedding it within the site or making an archive is a whole other story possibly. That may require work! If so, scrap it now. J/K

It would be limited to in hand items most likely.

Alright kids. We would like to pursue this idea. It will take coordination of course. Here's what would be ideal:

-Picture of item in box
-Price of item at time of purchase
-Picture of item and accessories out of box

Post pictures in this thread.

This is a project that will take time. With luck, this can be organized towards the end of the year. Any questions post them up or drop a PM. Thanks!

Contributor will be given credit.

Also, if all the accessories are around and someone doesn't have an item boxed no biggie. Hell, if anyone can snap a shot at the store that would work fine too. No point in buying something new if items are already in possession.

If anyone can just get a bunch of pictures sometime for future use that would work too. It's all about archiving.

don't know what I'll get, probably a jeep and trailer and the dauphine, don't know what else though. I'll see if I can get some pics at the store too.

Keep in mind this year's Z-9 and Type 92 are coming with reduced or no accessories at all. The Z-9 also does not come with a PTE pilot, just a soldier.

Good call KT. We'll have to note the year that the pictures are taken for reference since they will probably keep that trend going.

Also, if anyone does take some pictures try to use a solid color background for it. Not important really but just for looks pretty much. Hopefully Sunday I score a few things with the sale.

so here is a question to all 1:18 makers, why no mounted 50 cal for standard Humvee? I know that one of the guys on the forms does a gun shield, but what if that came standard?
I think that would give PTE (though i would like to see BBI do it) an advantage over other companys

Technically Bbi's Super Humvee does come with a roof M2, and they did prototype a variant with a M2 turret.

Time is the biggest issue. I know I have not had enough time to take pictures but anyone can contribute. Once pictures are taken I'll archive them for the future. Thing is, there is so much to check into. Not only Big Lots stuff but JC Penny and over seas too. It's quite the project.

I have a few things boxed still that I'm saving for this.

I'd love to have access to stuff like a PTE data base. I attempted to make an Elite Force 1:18 Wikipedia page years ago, around the time stuff stopped showing up in TRU. As far as I can tell it no longer exists, but I still have my original files that I used to make the entry. I just have a (mostly) complete list of the newstyle articulation GI Joe figures on HISStank that you can check out here, and since I collect PTE, Elite Force, Bravo Team and other 1:18 scale military toys, resources for these other lines would be cool to have.
