Love it, great idea...

I must say, I am very overwhelmed after seeing Mattel/DC Directs offerings... very... too much crap I want this year...

Freaking awesome!

Just for fun... here's another vid of the Volkswagen Force commercial... looks like it's got some outtakes in it. I like the ending on this one better too...

TECHNO FREAKING VIPER!!!! cant wait for pics... god help me and troop building this one.. I'd say I need one for every BAT I have...
Yes! Finally some cool Joe stuff to look forward to. Stoked about Techno-Viper, Sci-Fi, Zarana, Crazylegs and probably one or two others I'm forgetting at the moment. Hazard Viper looks pretty cool too. Not sure what happened with the Iron Grenadier and Rock Viper though. Yikes.

I first saw a pic of this through Botcon's Twitter feed and I was like WTF? After I learned that it comes with a Cobra Commander with G1 Gunmode Megatron scaled to fit Joes, I was like oh [censored] yes. This is likely the closest we will ever come to a Joe/Tf crossover toyline. I'll take it.

Nice!

That reminds me that I came across a couple of cool YouTube vids I wanted to share:

First up is a "review" of MP Hot Rod/imus Prime done by a guy imitating Optimus Prime. Bonus Points for using flange to make his Prime voice sound more like the G1 toon, love the subtle humor:

Prime reviews...Masterpiece Rodimus

Next up is quite possibly the most awesome live action GI Joe footage ever produced for commercial purposes. Yes I am looking at you ROC. Bonus points for live action Cobra Commander dubbed with Chris Latta's voice:

Live Action Joe Commercials from the '90s


From the bit about G.I. Joe Star Brigade: (As SB Duke picks up SB Destro) "We gotta stop meeting like this!" Comedy gold right there.

Rickey knows Rickey best

Anyone seen the Rickey Henderson Oakland A's McFarlane figure in stores yet? Looks like they're starting to show up as in stock for e-tailers, but I'd rather pick him up at TRU to save on shipping.

Re: Rickey knows Rickey best

Not interested in the MerMan, thanks. I found a Rickey at lunch today, but he was in his Yankees uniform. Seriously? In Citrus Heights? Weak! I'll check the other TRU near by after work this evening.

edit: ...and no luck with Rickey. Boo. 2 each of 4 of the figures, and missing the Ozzie Smith, Catfish Hunter, and Rickey. Weird.

NY Rickey was gone today, and of course not replaced by Oakland Rickey

Re: Rickey knows Rickey best

I'll keep my eyes open. I wish there was an Oakland Catfish, but alas, no.

I went ahead and ordered my Oakland Rickey from EE. Since their price is $3 cheaper than TRU, even with shipping, it only ended up being $2 more than trying to track one down at TRU.

Funny, my brother lives in this tiny little town called Millington here in Michigan. My sis in law calls it a village... but they have a comic/toy store around the corner that kicks toy fusions butt. Was really neat to walk through.

Re: Rickey knows Rickey best

No Joe vehicles at the country club or elkhorn Ross'

New Transformers voyagers (Lugnut, Grapple and Strafe) were spotted at Target in the Bay area so if anyone spots Grapple please stash or pick up
Also BBTS has gotten a lot of new TF's in - scout, legends and deluxe - so they'll probably be hitting retail soon. I need scout Windcharger, deluxe Wheeljack and Thundercracker and from legends Megateon if anyone spots them

Yep, I was able to get a set for myself so I am good on these, and have the 2 subs for Jason so far. If anyone spots restocks please let me know so I can make another run.

Also, snagged those DCU figs at Target you wanted--Jonah Hex, Robin, Creeper, and Mercury. Scanned 'em but none in the back.

I am quoting this because I need everything in this quote too, from Target of course.
My area has been terrible about getting new TF stuff in, big thanks to Jason for scoring darn near everything after wave one for me.

I'll have to double check Brett, but I thought my local WM had a Cooperstown S2 Oakland Catfish still up; at least as of a month or so ago....

That would be most appreciated, and would fit right in with my moustachioed A's

Hey any Wii owners out there ever have the "unable to read disc error" Out of the blue today the WIi I've had since launch just decided to stop reading all discs. Checked google and it seems like this isn't exactly unheard of but can't see any solutions other than send it in to Nintendo for repair. Don't want to send it in if I don't have to though.

The best solution is one Lars and I applied to the Wii...

You can find it Here. It is nice since you can rip your discs and put them up... I would never suggest anything illegal.
