Looks like once agaon that terrible Cobra Trooper SVDS is gonna rear it's ugly head. these will probably suck so it's no worry to me.


Fogger has me a Daina head, so I'll do my own eventually.

Oktober Guard, eh? Not something that's a must-have, but a nice-to-have. Here I was expecting them to flesh out the rest of the Marauders and Tiger Force. Hmm, weird.

Wonder if it'll be Oktober Guard vs. Joes?

I wonder if they will make a custom Ocktober Guard cyber criminal called Sgt. Savage?

I think it will be OG vs Cobra

Yup.

300-400 bucks for some oft-times lazily assembled frankenfigures.

Thats what i thought. Just wanted to hear it to be sure. I sooooo wanted that crimson set, but always saw it at those said prices. Was not sure if that was scalping or not. Looks like i too will have to make them.
Thanks!!

I'll be interested in the set, depending on how many OG figures are in the set. Normally the set has about 12 army builders and only three or so individual figures. I can't think of any troop builders that really fit the OG theme, unless they invent some kind of Russian version of the "green shirts".

If they do the five original OG members, I'll have to pony up for the set. But I'll be damned if I'm paying by any method but a check...

Very good points. I'm expecting something along the lines as last year. 6 or 7 Joes(OGs) and then a bunch of Cobra Army builders. I will admit that if they make a badass generic Russian like Green Shirt I might freak out lol.

I dunno, they can't manage for shit, but last year's set was better than 50% good. Some figures were downright must-haves, if you ask me.

It just so hit and miss with them...I'm sure it could be amazing IF they use the right parts that they DO have...the problem is they rarely do that...

i.e. Footloose

I thought the Mission Brazil Wet-Suit was killer. And Claymore was damn impressive, as was Sparta (although let's face it... Cover Girl will be a better use of those "pre-paint" parts). Even the SMB2 Dial-Tone was pretty great. The Python Patrol guys weren't bad either. Hell, I'd say that 75% of last year's set was pretty good, even though I didn't get them all. The only really weak-weak one was that awful Mainframe.

Well you know the IG figures are gonna suck. Every figure that has worn the IG faction name since the original Iron Grenadiers has been pretty damn mediocre.

It will most likely be 7-8 IG's, a repainted Destro and Baroness lol. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they use the same baroness as the Crimson set and put her in IG colors. Assuming that most of their budget will be used on the OG, they will have to cheap out on the IG troopers

Sounds like their M-O.


Maybe they'll announce a vehicle and the molds will break before production commences.

I thought it was early on, with the Alaskan pipeline or something. Talking comics here, not Sunbow.

I could be totally wrong though. Maybe just the arctic similarities...

This may be a huge assumption, but wasn't Kwinn introduced with the old Guard?

That UPS short wearing tool was shown in one of the first 5 comics I think. I can't remember if it was the arctic scene where Snake Eyes got the skull necklace or if it was when they were in the jungle with Dr. Venom.
