Does Larry Hama like the Tunnel Rat having a similar likeness? I definitely want Tunnel Rat.

I’m sure Dreadnoks are planned.

I want to see 1:12 vehicles. Are they planned? Do I need to keep making my own? Once Marching season is over for my son’s band I have time again to make stuff. The Thunder Machine us high on the want list.

I hope they plan on more than two or three figures ever four to five months.

Thwipp!

Road Pig is high at the top of my list.

I’m hoping the rumoured deluxe Croc Master is revealed this weekend.

I think we can be certain a classic Storm Shadow is inevitable, and may even get revealed on Saturday.

So my top remaining wants are:
Destro v2 (Iron Grenadiers)
Chuckles
Sci-Fi
Lifeline

I certainly hope you're right. My wish list is soooo close to being complete. I really didn't want much from this line, thankfully. I'm just two figures away from being able to call it a day!

Storm Shadow as a Cobra......

Crimson Guard......

I think they're both really likely too, based on past GI Joe lines. But the only thing that makes me nervous is the abysmal performance of the Snake Eyes movie and how shortsighted that tends to make the corporate bigwigs that make decisions. They honestly don't seem to care about the collectors that have been going apeshit for these figures for the last two years, or else they'd have shown a lot more product and relied more on online retailers.

Their "big reveals" of 2 or 3 figures at a time, every six months, is really pathetic. I know we're all excited and hoping for the best this weekend but they'll probably spend 15 minutes talking about the exclusive Zartan that a lot of people already have in hand, and then show maybe two more figures.


I really hope that alleged "leaked list" from a month or two ago turns out to be true, but it just seemed WAY too good to be true.


Then again, Snake Eyes and Timber just came out of nowhere, so who knows what's gonna happen.....hope this toyline actually has some legs and gets some releases out there already.

The continued lack of Alley-Vipers (given the package art) needs to be corrected. :)

I'm just hoping Sci-Fi is coming sooner rather than later. He's on the website list of characters and was in the video game, so I'm going to keep hoping that bodes well for him.

Hawk, Stalker and Shipwreck would all be welcome too.

How many here are going for the Zartan exclusive?

I originally wanted to get Pudgy pig, Dave Filoni, and this Zartan.

Pig is too much, and Dave I’m sure will be part of the Black series mainline at some point. Zartan looks to be the only one I’ll be getting and he at least comes with more heads and a gimmick for a decent price.

Well I’m still waiting on Snake Eyes and Timber and who knows when BBTS will get anymore in. Sure am glad I preordered on day one as soon as they went up as it’s working very swimmingly for me. 🤦🏻‍♂️

And I still want Stalker, Cover Girl, and Lifeline. Hopefully they drop the model of three new figures every six months. That’s freaking ridiculous.

I'm sure they'll release Alley Vipers, and they may very well be announced Saturday. However if supposedly "leaked" pics that showed up on Instagram, Hisstank, and even here prove genuine, don't count on them matching the package art.

I didn't realize there were leaked photos until you mentioned it.

Yay, another terribly-restrictive overlay vest for my highly-articulated figures! I didn't need that ab crunch anyway. Bonus points if they're lefties, too.

Yeah! Tunnel Rat’s likeness and specialty were based on Larry Hama. He was a combat engineer in Vietnam. Reason why TR is one of my favorite Joes.

At first I really wanted the exclusive but am on the fence about him now.

I bought the regular release recently just in-case I fail to order the SDCC one.

It also depends on what other figures are up for order.

I just hope they tap the gas on this line going forward. I love the figures, but this line hasn’t been fun to collect. At all. And the gaps between releases are so long if I don’t have them in front of me I could almost forget they exist.

I thought that leak was debunked as just someone’s custom?
