I actually picked up 2 AVs in-store last week. Missed the damn STs, though.

Yeah, I saw that post in the hauls thread!

Thanks to Dan, I have several of them en route.

And thank you one again, Sir, for that awesome Christmas present!

Hahahahahaha!!!!

Man, we should be home by May, and I am just counting down the days at this point.

I really feel bad for the guys coming out on this next rotation, because the Taliban is gonna have a really nasty summer in store for them.

Just keep them in your thoughts and prayers, because this place is gonna be "shoot out at the OK Corral" come June-July-August 2011.

PoC AVs, *yawn*
I did discover, however, that if you use a tiny head (PoC Commando SE head, probably the PoC AV head, too.) that you can gas mask mod the AV helmet without cutting or gluing anything permanently, AND the visor will close easily.

Well, I think that PoC AV is pretty damn cool, and certainly worth buying a squad or so.

At least a fire-team, anyway?

Come on, admit it!!!

I see a couple of schmucks. ;)



I want to like the AV, it's just the deco and the tiny head that really kill it for me. Then again, i have 4 of them, and will probably buy them when i see them just because.

Get this, i just picked up 2 more AVs and a ST.

That brings me up to 7, 9 counting the one i sent you and the one i traded for a JV ( Boy, i regret that one). Awful lot of a figure i proclaim to not like all that much.

TrU. I think almost all of my AVs came from there.

Target here had 11 Destro's until this Monday, when they restocked with a Wave 1/Wave 2 mixture.

Now it's whirlwind SE, W1 Duke, Dusty and Zartan.

I'm tempted with Dusty and Duke...but have bought my fair share of them at this point.

I am reading reports that Wal-Mart is actually stocking a lot more ST's and AV's lately.

Same applies to TRU.

As best as i can tell TrUs are stocking the revision cases with FagShadow and without Low-Light.

That'd be a good improvement. I like the way the sleeves look, despite the downsides. It looks like a shooting jacket.

There's quite a bit of work to do. A sniper that can't get in the positions is useless.

True true. I dremeled the torso, vest, arms and back of the head down. He can at least shoulder the weapon now. Still working out how to get it so he can get into the prone.

First thing i'd try would be lengthening the chest slot.

I took a ride to Vermont today and hit the closest TRU to me there. I snagged a second Skdive and asked a lady working there is they had any more Joes. Her answer was teh standard 'I don't know, nor do I care, so I'll just tell you that's all we have so you'll go away.'
