Not me after their Earthrise Seekers sold out immediately, never came back and now cost $200-$300 to acquire. Double the price seems like a bargain.It hurts, but sadly, it's par for the course until this line finds more stable footing. I hope AMZ ordered a lot of these, as they normally have plenty when they do exclusives in other lines.
They'll probably be $10 on black friday, but who is going to take that gamble?
Just give me Grunt and I’ll shut up about green shirts. Old ass M-16 and dinky backpack please.I don't think there's been a peep about anything since the reveal of Pulsecon Zartan.
I'm picking up Barbecue, despite being one of my least favorite 82-85 Joes. He won't have a role on the active roster, but gotta have some support staff to chill at the base, check the extinguishers and sprinklers, etc. I can put him in charge of PSA development.
And as for Breaker, I'm thrilled at the basic figure without a massive pouchy vest and shin-guards. He's exactly what I want for an OG Joe (aside from needing basic webgear rather than the harness that looks like it belongs to ShortFuse). I just hope we get the rest of the 82 squad in that style. While I know that's not your cup-o-tea, I'd think he'd still suffice for a back-at-HQ comms guy. That was basically his role back in the day anyway. I struggle to recall a time in the toon when he appeared outside the big control room.
I definitely want that, but I need camo Stalker, ShortFuse, Flash, & Grandslam too. Not to mention all the drivers. But I assume we'll get them all. Most are very basic repaints that would take minimal effort. But that also means half of them will be exclusives we'll have to pay double for.Just give me Grunt and I’ll shut up about green shirts.

How have you let 30 years go by without re-reading the first 76 issues?! I try to get back to them every 6-8 years, and I'm about due for another go-round.Dang! I could have sworn that was the new deco. I had to check with my daughter (who read through the series last summer - 30 years more recently than I did ), but you are 100% right! I mixed it up with the revenge raid to get Zartan.
Please tell me you've read the series at least once?!
