Toyfair=Me happy.

So glad to see Joe get a good stride again, those "Ultimate" figuers rock. Data Viper and Kwinn getting released is WONDERFULL. Tomahawk redeco is sweet. Great job Big H.

All of this.

Nothing new at retail (from Hasbro) in the Atlanta metro area. I used to not mind getting new stuff from BBTS, other online retailers, eBay and trades, but I really, really miss being able to find something awesome on the pegs. Completely taking that tactile experience out of the equation, is starting to suck the fun out of this for me.

I received mine too. These were two of the figures I signed up for the sub.
I'm happy with both of these. Going to display Topside in my Killer Whale along with
the DG Shipwreck and Cutter.

Big Boa was one of my favorites when I was younger. He was one of my last figures I got when I was at the stage when I "outgrew" collecting Joe.

Big Boa was one of my favorites-- I wish they included the punching bag-- the Pugil Stick and Mask-- just seems odd-- giving us accessories for other figures..

Also Im still on the fence about the removeable hands-- I think I would have preferred gloves like the vintage design that slip over the hands..

I thought he had slip on gloves like the original. I never noticed it when they first showed the prototypes.

Since we are halfway there I'm curious who the 13th figure is.

Gotta be someone good, but not essential...like one of the drivers?

Frostbite? Tollbooth? Keel-Haul?

A variant, like Marine Dress Gung-Ho?

Maybe an off-the-wall choice like Super Trooper, Crystal Ball, or Raptor?

or maybe...THE FRIDGE?? :D

It's funny Superfly I thought Raptor. I'm hoping Frostbite
Since we are getting Iceberg

Slice would certainly make sense. Nobody can rightly complain they were cheated of a chance to buy the second half of the team when they chose to pass on the first half.

That would make sense to include Slice.

But is Slice enough of a incentive? It makes sense I suppose, but I just can't see Slice being a big enough payoff to ensure that fans will re-up for 2014...

But unlike Mattel they give the enitre reveal of the SUB (other than the Bonus) before you need to reup-so either you are in or out based on the lineup-
- a couple are announced already for next year-- (Night Force Falcon, OGs Dragonsky and Big Bear)-- so I am already probably in to finish up my OG..

I'm still kinda miffed that I was priced out of getting the Oktober Guard. I just didn't have enough (or any, really) interest in the IG stuff that was a part of that Con set. I'd love to see a modern Gung Ho in dress blues like Ryan mentioned.
