I like the Joe shirt, but wouldn't Snake Eyes be a little more appropriate to go... Commando? :drums:

As for creepy uncle... :wtf:

At first, when I just saw a thumbnail of the fat guy, I thought, "Oh, I could turn this into a 6" Boss Hogg..." but then I opened the listing and saw the depravity. Even if the figure worked for a custom, I'd never be able to look at it without seeing "Wreched Uncle" in my mind. (shudders)

Pretty sure it’s just a matter of time. He’s a NYer, no? Indoctrination capital of the world right now I fear.

But he's ex-military and seems to have more common sense about him. Sure, he turned SS into a good guy because "representation", but he doesn't strike me as a socialist-lefty. The man fought in 'Nam for pete's sake. His comics would lead one to think he's a pretty patriotic guy. No way he's going to support flag burning, antifa, defund cops, statue desecration, and the rest of the nonsense... right? Right?!

I don't want to live in a world where Larry Hama gets woke. That would be awful. I imagine him an apolitical person that espouses responsibility, patriotism, and doing-the-right-thing. Maybe that's only in my head, but he seems like a very kind, reasonable person. If he gets infected with orangemanbad, I will be profoundly disappointed.

It’s possible he’s just Joe Bidening, and in his dementia is falling victim to the pervasive indoctrination that surrounds him.

Is there anything funnier than toy product photos that unironically show adults getting excited the way they used to show kids getting excited about toys back in the day in commercials and catalogs? I admit it, I ordered this set for parts in spite of this toolbag. :ROFLMAO:

I will certainly buy it once the price drops to 50%. Mega has gotten 100’s of extra dollars from me for the Enterprise and Greyskull since I had no patience. The damn Scorpion set is $100, so hopefully it drops so I can fill that one glaring vehicle hole in my collection.

Yeah, hate to bear bad news, you missed the boat on the scorpion. MSRP was $69, and it sat for many months at $58. I bought it back in Dec for $45. As the only listings on amazon are 3rd party sellers, it ain't getting cheaper.

But I need that pelican. So many parts of one color, that should match the color of green from the scorpion, hornet, and other recent halo releases. It should give me enough of a stash for a couple more custom Joe vehicles. The last Pelican and Scorpion in 2016 were a much darker green, the color I used for the VAMP and WHALE. Halo has been a blessing for my project, as COD doesn't release big sets anymore. If the new pelican gets cheaper down the line, I'll buy another or two.

Really? I never once saw the Scorpion on a shelf and never saw it on Amazon. Not the Scorpion’s Sting kit, but the new 10 in 1 Scorpion. I’ve been watching it for months.

Yep. After TRU went tits-up, I don't think any b&m stores carry sets that large anymore, as I never saw it in person either. But it was pretty cheap on Amazon in Nov-Dec. Since then, it's been below MSRP from 3rd Party sellers until Mid-April when supplies got tight and the price shot up.

The Camelizer confirms:

I highly recommend signing up with camel camel camel. I set price alerts on stuff when I'm waiting for it to get cheaper. They're very reliable about notifying me of deals on things I don't want to pay full price for. Or anytime I'm buying something, I check out the price history to make sure that I'm not getting screwed.

But history tells me that all the best deals I've ever gotten on big MCX sets have been in Q4. Almost always.
