    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    Quite literally all Buzz parts except the head and a couple extra hoses. I bought the figure because I needed the jetpack w/ wings for my Plague AVAC... so the figure was surplus. But he looked so close, I couldn't resist. Not my finest custom, but considering Deep Six is a tertiary character...

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    I love SAW Viper, even if they make him hot Barbie pink. He was so insane in the comics, I couldn't pass him up. In the DTC era, they put out a good SAW that was mostly brown and black, with just a hint of the pink, and it looked great, so I'd be fine if classified went that route...

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    I hear you. Classified is putting out a lot of great stuff. Even the stuff without a lot of nostalgia pull is worth picking up at discounted rates. When any of them get sub-20 or especially sub-15, where else on the market can you find something that fun for less? I managed to PO the 60th...

    Oh, and name-only reveals of SAW Viper, Frag Viper, and Dialtone. Dialtone is automatic, assuming it's the male version, none of that IDW gender swap nonsense. The two vipers illustrate the best and the worst of hasbro's imagination when it comes to Cobra. SAW viper is a heavy gunner, makes...

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    As for Hasbro's financials... I don't worry about Joe too much. Sure, they might have to scale back on the number of accessories or something to cut costs, but in my head, they'll always have to do far worse to Marvel Legends and Star Wars because those have license fees on top of them. I...

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    The Eel... I'm only getting one to keep carded, but there isn't enough difference to bother adding any to my shelf ranks. The Snow Serpent... I might get one or two to open, let the brighter colors be the officers or something. Definitely don't need a bunch though. Beachhead, yeah I'll get...

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    Ah, I never saw them as a band. Cold Slither was a funny one-off episode, but just that. The biker gang structure worked better in my head. But I can see where a four-member "band" wouldn't appreciate all the new additions. I think Gnawgahyde was the first 'Nok that I didn't own originally...

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    I get it. I never had Gnawgahyde, Night Creeper, or Range-Viper as a kid either, like you, well before my time ('89 was my final year of collecting ARAH the first time around), but all three were in the comic, so I was aware of them even if I didn't own the toys. But when I got back into Joe...

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    I'll PO all of them, because I'm such a mark for these. I mean, Gnawgahyde is dumb, but you can't have too many Dreadnoks, and come on, he comes with an angry monkey with an eyepatch. If that's not funny, I don't know what is. My only complaint is that he uses the shitty w1 Gung-Ho buck with...

    Pardon the Dust

    Russian pirates?

    Pardon the Dust

    Idk, it's been too long now. Never saw a pirate playing the long game that well. They're more the right-here, right-now types. "Arrrgh, I'll talk them up on the interwebs for FIFTEEN YEARS, and THEN I'll make my move. They'll never see me get their Monkey Depot booty! Arrrrgh."

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    I didn't lose my love of 1:18th... I just gained a greater appreciation for 1:12th. But it was easy for me, as I'd been collecting marvel legends since about '07... so I always had a foot in both camps. I love the detail of 1:12, but the vehicles are a problem. I have the Haslab HISS, and I...

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    Don't forget that S7 is also getting back into the O-ring game. I have a lot of hope that they'll be making toony/comic-y versions of ARAH characters that we never got in toy form or that have always been in desperate need of an update because of poor head sculpts, like any of the (ugly)...

    G.I. Joe Classified Series (1:12)

    What?! No self-respecting Joe collector has been able to resist all this 1:12 goodness. I must admit, I have not touched a 1:18 figure in years aside from collecting what few came out from the WM retro line and the short-lived o-ring revival from pulse that put out a net.... ten figures? But...

    Airwolf

    I got screwed by "Club ARAH" like a decade ago (guy supposedly got cancer and used all the funds for his medical bills... supposedly). And then I got taken again by the Kickstarter for 1:12 soldiers (long before Vala or Classified), the Army Alphas. That dude stole nearly 100k, and kickstarter...

    Real bummer. How many people got screwed? I've been burned enough that I'm highly skeptical of any projects being done by unproven entities.

    Takara Transformers

    He's a knocked-up 4th party figure based on Magic Square's second attempt at an MP Prime. I use the original v1 Magic Square as my display Prime, but I have v2 as well. V2 is definitely more toony and takes a lot of cues from MP-44. But both MS versions are better than MP-10 and MP-44, IMO.

    I haven't put any with him, but I've seen pics where others have tried it, and they look solidly in-scale. (y)
