  1. If they have the ability to pull characters from the expanded universe from the BOOM! comics series; then they got plenty to work with to keep it going with just MMPR Era characters. A set with Drakkon & Ranger Slayer from the World of the Coinless/Shattered grid storyline, the Omega Rangers, if they can still do TMNT characters then a crossover set with the Turtles & Shredder in their Ranger forms from that comic & even more characters I haven't mentioned. Ideally the line gets to incorporate other series past the MMPR Era but well have to wait & see.
  2. Those look frickin' awesome. Definitely buying. On a related note (as I want to get these pre-ordered), is anyone else having issues getting on Luke's site? I was on it in the afternoon yesterday but since the evening I've been getting the following error message: This site can’t provide a secure connection uses an unsupported protocol. ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH Not sure if it is actually something with the site or possibly something on my browser's end.
  3. Monster-wise Goldar, Zedd, Rita & Putty Patrollers should be must makes but they should also make Pumpkin Rapper since they can re-tool the head from Pumpkin King Jack from the NBC mates by removing the stem for Pumpkin Rapper's head but also include some spares as they currently are to swap out onto the Rangers for his attack.
  4. @luke314pi Are these gonna be in your shop for pre-order on next Friday or later? I suppose I should also check with my LCBS before he guilt trip/shames me again like he did with the Joes. Lol
  5. 1) Snake Eyes 2) "Kaine Parker" Scarlet Spider (box & show may call him Ben Reilly but none of us are fooled) 3) Ben Reilly Scarlet Spider 4) Nightwing 5) Captain America (Age of Ultron- best MCU Cap to me since I like the white on his biceps compared to his other suits) 6) Lobo 7) Nightstorm Predator 8 ) my kitbash Dan Ketch Ghost Rider
  6. I keep holding out hope for an updated classic 90's Dan Ketch Ghost Rider. A less likely hope of a static Hellcyle stand to go with him is probably even more unlikely to see the light of pale eerie night.
  7. You glorious person. I had not heard of this until I saw your post. You have brought a smile to my crappy day.
  8. Currently for me it is Snake-Eyes from the current box set. Kind of a cheat but he is based off his A Real American Hero art which was published by Marvel originally.....
  9. @DSTZach Has the idea of armory packs been brought up at DST for the Joe line? Maybe something like a single troop builder character in the pack & then just a bunch of weapons for use with the other mates in the line?
  10. @DSTZach Any info on if we might be getting Transformers Vinimate? I'd love an Optimus for Snake-Eyes to jump from or a Starscream to replicate the Snake-Eyes optic grenade scene from the comics.
  11. Well if you want to try that route; the Series 1 & 2 figures are in fact different & new as they have different paint applications than the box set figures. Also for all we know they may get some additional accessories the original release did not have included. Same as numerous other toys that get released as new when it is a minor change. Also Hasbro has released new product with old product numerous times over the years. Just go look through the GI Joe 2 pack sets or a bunch of the various Star Wars multipacks & you'll see that. Hell the even the original GI Joe line in the 80's released the original straight arm versions for purchase before shortly releasing the "same" figures again with the retooled swivel arms. Also as has been stated, by releasing characters again it gives other people a chance to get them that may not have been able to get the original release without having to go to secondary scalper prices. That alone is more than enough reason to justify it given that it is also some of the characters that rank as the most popular in the Joe franchise.
  12. Alas my hunt begins for the Hand then for stand-ins until further notice. Also; if by chance Shipwreck is on the slate at some point;**nudge**nudge** maybe just repaint Redwing in parrot colors **nudge**nudge** Loving what we got so far & looking forward to seeing what we end up getting. Thank you & everyone else at DST for the work that goes into getting us these products.
  13. @DSTZach If you know/can disclose; what might the odds be of us getting the Red Ninjas? Just wondering before I go searching out all the Hand Ninjas I can find. Also is there a chance of a pack in accessory of Snake's wolf Timber?
  14. While I'm still waiting on my Joe sets I pre-ordered to arrive (should be here Monday); I visited my LCBS & they had the Joes & Transformers in shop so bought a set of Transformers that I didn't order another Joe set out of guilt for not trusting in my LCBS to get them. Lol. Was glad to find out that Snake Eyes base is in fact molded in black so no white ball problems. Also for those who wanted an uzi for him; the Sin City Big Fat Kill set comes with one & some sellers on eBay have that set down to $10 with free shipping. The loops on Storm Shadow's quiver & Snake Eyes bandolier are a bit small (at least on this partiular set) for the blades so be careful inserting & removing the swords so as not to break anything.
  15. That was my first thought on him when they said the others would be redecos
  16. This isn't anything new to minimates or gi joe toys or numerous other toy lines. Variants, re-paints & re-releases are always gonna be something to deal with in collecting. Not everyone is gonna like it but it is part of the collecting game. In the end it is up to the individual to decide what they are willing to purchase or pass on. Personally, I'll be buying the new ones if they make it to market since I like the darker colors on the Joes & the redo of Storm Shadow is how I would have preferred him first time & Cobra Commander is looking nice in the redo (hoping we get an alternate hooded mask). That said; I'm glad I bought the FBCD set just in case something happens & we don't get the future waves (really hope that doesn't happen but no one knows what the future holds).
  17. I gotta quit checking these forums. Every time I do; I find out my wallet is gonna be getting lighter again. Lol I get the feeling Snake-Eyes redco might be in purple & grays like the od cartoon. Although kinda hoping it is a V1 Commando but that would likely be a new figure versus a redco
  18. Damn it. So it seems I shall be out more cash now thanks to minimates.
  19. Only minor gripe I have with the wave 2 is with Duke & Roadblock's belts & harness. Always hate when the waist articulation is lost due to the chest belts but honestly it is better than not getting the characters at all. So with that said; I'm going to need to know when these are going up for preorder so I can order 3 sets just like wave 1.
  20. Looking forward to getting my pre-ordered sets when they finally release. I'm hoping Snake-Eyes is molded in black & not just painted due to the joints. White balls will stand out in action poses. Worst cast though I can pull out the synthetic RIT dye & carefully dye them if need be.
  21. They goofed Cobra Commander's file card. They reversed the Specialty & Codename on his card.
  22. I could deal with that as long as the joe in each pack is different. I just don't want ta situation where I have get 10 Chuckles, Quickkick, Alpine etc. just so I can have 10 Cobra Troopers. I can deal with 10 Greenshirts to get those 10 Cobra Troopers.
  23. If we get army builder packs; I'm hoping they throw in a member of each faction in the pack. Greenshirt vs. Cobra Trooper, Steel Brigade vs. Crimson Guard, etc. Not keen on the idea of just one faction in each pack since then one side becomes bigger than the other collection wise.
