  1. I still hold out hope that we get more G.I. Joe Minimates. I was foolish and sold all of my G.I. Joe Classified figures when the G.I. Joe Minimates were announced. That ended up being a big mistake. I was hoping they would be as popular as the Classified figures, but they obviously haven't taken off. I ended up buying them all again except for a few that were way too expensive in my eyes. I understand what Zach is saying. if you want to get an army builder set then you should have been supporting the line from the beginning so that something like an army builder set would be possible in the future. I do hope that we do see an army builder set. It would definitely sell very well.
  2. It has been about a month now. Any update on these Zach? I wish you could get these in to Target (are they completely against Minimates)? They would look great next to the G.I. Joe Classified figures.
  3. This set is amazing. I think the previous Spidey set is also. The only negative thing about that one is that it is a lot of re-hashes. Overall though those look great. Zach, will the next set of "greatest hits" be a mix of Marvel characters or a greatest hits of a certain comic like Avengers or X-Men?
  4. Flair is a nice surprise. Another definite buy for me. I do wish Flair had an extra body in his ring gear though.
  5. Do you think they would do two Spider-man sets in a row? I would be all for more Spider-man sets, but I don't think they would do it.
  6. I'm dying for a Lucha Bros set. Their minimates would look amazing. Too bad you couldn't release the four packs and then a few two-packs of tag teams throughout the year. We already got a Young Bucks two-pack.
  7. The Echo show was pretty bad. The fight scenes were pretty horrible. I still don't even know what her powers are on the show. They should have kept her with her powers from the comics. The show definitely isn't going to get people to want to buy her figure. I think you guys made the right choice removing her ( I do look forward to her in a future set though). Does Bullseye not have a chest tampo? It looks odd to me from what I can see. I am slowly going blind though so maybe it is there and my eyes can't pick it up.
  8. That's what I get for posting at 3 in the morning, combined with the fact that I am old and going blind.
  9. Someone has to be pretty happy now that Starduster has been revealed to be coming out for the G.I. Joe Classified line. I believe that I had pretty much stopped collecting G.I. Joe by the time he was released. I wish the G.I. Joe Minimates would pick up steam and that we would get more than 2 sets a year. These were announced back in early 2001 and we have only got four sets in that time with only 9 characters out of all the G.I. Joe characters there are out there. I hope 2024 looks better for this line.
  10. I don't think Tiger Force, Python Patrol, etc. should be released until way down the line. Give us characters in their normal looks first. I have passed on quite a few of the Classified Tiger Force and Python Patrol figures so far. I'm not a real big fan of the redeco's. Tiger Force Dusty is currently warming the pegs at all of the Targets around me. I did buy the Night Force Shooter figure and pre-ordered the Night Force Wolf Spider though since they are new characters and look pretty cool. I do wish you could sell them as single packs. They looked fantastic in the sets that we got them in. That might even give more people the nostalgia feeling and get them to buy them. Are series 3 and 4 still going to be one set G.I. Joe, and the next Cobra, or will you be mixing them together? Has there been talk of a Dreadnok set of Zartan, Buzzer, Ripper, and Torch?
  11. Any update as to what is going on with the G.I. Joe line Zach? It has been awfully quiet for a while, which has me worried that the line is dead before it ever really got going.
  12. I was so disappointed in Christmas Vacation 2. It was horrible.
  13. I would love to see single carded figures released. I think a lot of G.I. joe collectors would love to buy them. They looked great for series one and two. Very nostalgic looking. Do I need to pull a Cousin Eddy and snatch the head of Target at Christmas and talk to him about the error of his ways and convince him that G.I. Joe Minimates on the pegs at Target would be a great idea? Damn, what a long run-on sentence that was.
  14. Zach is there any word on series three and four? I think if more people were aware that G.I. Joe Minimates existed that the line would really start selling. Hasbro Pulse selling them would help immensely. I think you guys need to keep going with them if possible.
  15. I am happy with this set, and the webbing parts look great. I would also like to say that I will prefer Minimates based on comics over the movies 100% of the time. That is what got me and all the original members of this group to buy them. We didn't get any Minimates based on the movie until Spider-man 3 if I remember correctly.
