ok red banshee on paper ROCKED!! a BAT that turned in to a motor cycle not only a new army builder but a vehicle for cobra to drive around in the figure....not so much

I almost wonder if somewhere down the line Red banshee got downsized

i'm thinking of picking up two of them to act as a hunter/killer kind of robot that uses stolen cybertronien technology works for me

I kind of hope he was downsized along the way, 'cause otherwise Hasbro was simply shooting itself in the foot right from the start.

Seriously: Commando price? And no accessories?!?

Although I have few memories of Go-Bots, I think it would be incredibly awesome if Hasbro brought forth some of the old characters from that series for the Universe line, just like they did by bringing Matt Trakker from MASK into the GI Joe fold.

I would love that! They've got all the legal rights, so I say go for it.

Of course, a lot of fanboys bitched about Trakker.

People are idiots.

Actually, they alreay did, sorta. They released a repainted Classics Mirage as homage to the female Go-Bot Crasher, called "Fracture". Its a really great use for that mold, even better than the HasbroToyShop exclusive "Dragstrip" which is fine... if you really-really like bright yellow.

Fanboys bitching is like music to my ears! ;-) I really like Trakker, even though M.A.S.K. holds no sentimental value to me. I was lucky enough to find him on shelves with an in-disguise Cobra Flint. I've been cherry picking the line for a while now, especially since they've started releasing repaints and flooding shelves with army builders.

M.A.S.K. does nothing for me on even a nostalgia level either, but I think it was awesome of Hasbro to produce that figure, and for some reason, I want him!

That disguised Flint is a highlight, too. All I have from the 25th series is Tomax and Xamot; I don't like how wobbly and fragile the figures are, 'cause Sigma 6 has spoiled me where articulation and poseability are concerned.

And dude, I just google imaged Fracture; BADASS!

I'd totally place it alongside Oil Slick as Cy-Kill!

Its certainly a nice nod to the fans.

I started off with the TFAC when I picked up Cobra Commander, and Serpentor. Thats when the I caught the collector bug and I started going for more. I was never a huge Joe fan, it was always third to He-Man and Transformers which constantly fought for the top spot, and by the time Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came around they weren't even a blip on the register.

I never really gave much thought to Joes until the TFAC line, thats what piqued my interest in the Sigma Six line. I have Cobra Commander, Zartan, and Lt. Stone. Those are pretty much the only ones on the shelves I've seen that I liked, and its pretty slim pickins.

I can totally see Oil Slick working as a stand in for Cy-Kill!

I have five Lt. Stones, four of which I use as Cobra Trooper troop-builders.

I'm thinking of trading them and some of my Sky BATs for TF Animated figures.

This might prove to be a bad obsession.

Hey, I saw something the other day I'm not sure you'd want or not. It's a giant Batmobile from Batman Begins. I shit you not this thing is a good three feet long and a foot wide. It was in really good shape (just a little dusty) and only cost $25. Would you be interested in something like that?

In theory, that sounds badass. Sounds like it'd probably be to scale with my "Movie Masters" Batman figure.

Being practical, though, I gotta save up money for 1. Valentine's Day (which makes sense when you consider that I won't actually have any money to save until late January), 2. Our anniversary (mid-March), 3. The Millennium Falcon, which I want to buy for Deven's brother, Kit, and 4. A righteous assload of Transformers Animated figures.

Still and all, thank you for being on the lookout for me!

Obviously you have your priorities, but now is a great time to pick up Animated deluxe figures, Wal-Mart has them for $7.77!

-x

Aw, man, don't tell me that! :)

Oh well, broke is broke; they could be $1 and it wouldn't do me much good.

Cool, just thought I'd throw it out there, because how often do you see something like that?

Speaking of the Millennium Falcon, at this same store I mentioned earlier, they have a giant to scale model of it hanging from the ceiling. It's the coolest thing ever and only costs $7000!

Only $7,000?

You shoulda bought me two of 'em!

I was going to, but it turns out they only accept real cash. Monopoly money wasn't accepted there.

*wanders in from straya's f-list*

If I could actually kitbash decently well(I have a small army of in progress figures that will likely remain that way for a long time to come), I would try that. Because there really needs to be a new Cy-Kill. It's sad when I judge every TF bike that comes around for whether or not it can be 'bashed into Cy-Kill.

And while Gobots had its share of completely ridiculous storylines(the Renegades undertaking a plan to cut off all power to Barstow, California comes to mind), it also had a lot of fun characters. I'm still hoping that we'll one day see a Smallfoot update of some kind, beyond the G1 Minibot collection.

Welcome!

Did you know about this?

Is that Barstow plot a real one? That's hilarious.

I actually managed to pick up Fracture a while back... I'm actually not sure that the pictures do the figure justice, as I think she looks even better in person. Crasher(the white version) was my first ever transforming figure, so I'm always going to have a soft spot for Gobots.

Yeah... and I think it involved some kids finding Turbo and using him as a race car, as well. We just got a kick out of it because we drove through Barstow when we moved from California, and... well, let's just say it's not exactly the place I'd choose as ground zero of my world conquest plan.

Seriously! Now someone needs to edit that episode using the audio from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas:

"We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold..."

the second pic in this post with the dude on the red banshee reminds me of MASK . Perhaps Sly Rax on his cycle or his Cy Kil? OH SNAP A 3 WAY CROSSOVER! M.A.S.K. / Gobots/ GI Joe

OH SNAP A 3 WAY CROSSOVER! M.A.S.K. / Gobots/ GI Joe

Don't give me any ideas!!!! :)

but its a good idea! Sigma's have enough helmets and masks in their line to make M.A.S.K. and V.E.N.O.M. agents

I know it's a good idea, but I can't afford my own dumb ideas, much less new ones! :)

i'm going to send you a Sectar dude along with hex's guns and batman beyond. the sectar dude makes a good Cobra La fag

Oh shit, I forgot about Batman Beyond!

Quit pushing your politically-correct agenda, you bastard!
