Hmm, the one-man boat isn't new, but the rest looks to be. That dolphin sub is boss, but I'm wondering if it wouldn't be possible to get that squid on some large hulk figure and cook up some kind of Lovecraftian beastie?

I'm not *entirely* sure, but I think there *may* just be a giant squid in that set. What do you think?

It looks like they added more. I'm not sure if the figure are Chap Mei, but if they are it means they are finally starting to move beyond 5 poa. Still not where they need to be to be useful, but still an improvement.

I shouldn't want these. I want them anyway.

The figures have been part of the early Sentinel One lines and they've had the elbow articulation then though to be honest that elbow articulation IMO doesn't really add much to the posing you could do. Hovercraft and tank are nice and hovercraft will probably look better with the oversized cannons removed and the inside crammed with troops rather than a vehicle :) . Too bad that the jet is just a hand toy :p, least they could have done was go the GI Joe Hasbro way like the Thunderwing jet where the hand toy features could be concealed

Ok so someone wanted more photos of the bridge layer vehicle. Unfortunately I couldn't find many, and they are mostly used to compare with the Elite Force Abrams, which I posted on the BBI thread. However, there are a couple of the vehicle itself, but without the bridge.

Wonder if that QLZ87 just looks overly large. If it just looks big it would be a fine option for retiring the Jai Alai cesta from everyone's Frag Vipers.

Nice finds. Very interesting. Looks like my cousins just got their birthday gifts for this year.

The vehicle that looks like an MRAP seems to steal an action feature from the G.I. Joe Quick Strike.

That True Heroes Pump Action Missile truck has custom potential especially the front portion of the truck!

I'm always tempted by the larger-sized gunboat as a ride for the RoC blue camo Joes (they always look like some kind of marine team to me, for some reason...)

I think there's a black version of it, too.

And yeah, the articulation is a little limited on these guys. I think the problem is that all the joints are one-directional and everything feels very up-down/forward-backward, even with the waist twist. Still, they're cool figures and vehicles for the price. I have $5 in Rewards I need to redeem so I may have to grab something from the line soon...

I always look beyond their figures! I try to envision some of the True Heroes vehicles for simple G.I. Joe/Cobra custom vehicles!

I'm getting kind of shy on space and I do tend to collect figures over vehicles but with that said, I'm certainly very tempted by a number of their releases, even if I just wind up sticking the figures in the cockpit/driver's seat or something...

I know they have at least one figure that is meant to hold a gun of some-sort. I think it's the one with the skull mask balaclava.

I'm the polar opposite! I like getting vehicles more than figures!

How about posting them here instead of trying to get everyone to your facebook page? The whole point of this site is to share shit with other members, not pimp other sites with the promise of pictures.

I picked up the bridge layer set for about $20. Neat set at that price.
