I ordered Python Patrol Viper and Bat, and Tiger Force Outback at both Pulse and Target. After a bunch of people who ordered Breaker on Target on day one got backordered, I need Pulse to be a back up plan. If Target pulls through on my order, I will just cancel the Outback I ordered on Pulse and end up with 2 Python Patrol Vipers and 2 Python Patrol Bats. I'm trying not to have a huge army of troopers but the Python Patrol look so damn cool.

If there is anyone with double orders of Outback and BAT, I’ll happily take the extra instead of you cancelling.

I just realised that today’s reveals and with the names on the leaked list my Joeverse Cobra High Command will be completed.

Cobra Commander - Supreme Leader
Destro - MARS Industries
Baroness - Cobra Vipers
Zartan - Dreadnoks
Major Bludd - BATs
Storm Shadow - Arashikage Clan
Tomas/Xamot - Extensive Enterprises/Crimson Guard
Great list and it got me thinking.

Firefly as leader for the Python Vipers.

For making MARS Industries figures could used the lab coats from the new M.L. Reed Richards and Moria plus the Jurassic Park Ray Arnold.

And Baroness the leader of the Night Stalkers? :drool:
Damn, I thought I could easily pass on the PP Vipers but Firefly looks so good with them.

I do need to pick up some MLs to work as background characters….
Sorry if I added to the broken budget.
Like I said your list was too great to ignore figuring out how to do it with what was available.

No broken budget. I just thought I was over the headache of Target exclusives.

They are not available here in Australia at all. I have to get lucky on a Hong Kong site or someone from the US.

Fiona's jaw is articulated. The sculptor mentioned how proud they were at how they did it.
Nice!

Even though I'm in the US...... Target... bla bla bla....... :evil:

Is shipping from the UK cost prohibitive to Australia?
The good thing is you'd be supporting a business in the Commonwealth. :mrgreen:

I checked and Zavvi UK is sold out of Vipers but Star Actions Figures UK still has them for preorder.

I’m trying to cut down on toy purchases and told myself I would ONLY order Joes I have an emotional attachment to. Despite not giving a crap about Croc Master,he’s gonna look too cool standing on the shelf next to the (eventual) Dreadnoks. Also $40 for that set is a steal. Meanwhile….on my bread and butter line of Star Wars…I am miffed enough about the Cobb Vanth pricing to wait and get him on clearance-or not. And I’m waffling on the Rancor. Hasbros GI Joe team stole the show and my wallet,apparently.

What is the function of a JoePro? Is it a communicator? Does it project holograms?

Yup, and the scarf is even figured in the box art. In the art, it's black which looks cool. If it ends up not having the scarf, I'll just buy one cast in black from gnomes paintshop. I think would look cool with a black scarf.

Also, anyone notice the new rolled up sleeve sculpt on Spirit?

I wish they had use this on the Python Patrol Viper but I bet we see this reused again like on Shipwreck.

GoPro camera is hardened for the military and you get a JoePro?

Since a GoPro can record sound link it to a radio and you have a voice and video feed link similar to the helmets and headsets the Colonial Marines had in Aliens.

Now it was not canon but it was made with Hasbro's permission.

In Community GI Jeff episode, Overkill pushed what looked like a red version of a JoePro on his wrist to produce multiple holographic versions of himself.

So the answer is Yes? :rolleyes:

In any case they are a commutations device of some sort. Funny enough Snake Eyes doesn’t have one. So they must only be an audio device, which would explain why Snake didn’t get one. Although he wouldn’t theoretically be able to communicate back, having him being able to hear the rest of the team would seem like a good idea. Perhaps his is just hidden in his mask? As funny as it may be to have Snake Eyes texting, it would be a very effective way to have him communicate with the rest of the team. Maybe even have his texts get sent audibly to the rest of the team like Stephen Hawking. I guess that would go against the whole serious, secret Ninja commando thing. I could see some bad autocorrects used for some humor in a movie or TV show.

Spirit has emerged as my most anticipated figure out of all of the great reveals. I love his design, Freedom looks amazing, he comes with a badass new rifle, etc. Really excited to add him to the collection.

Also, I have not been paying attention to it, but is Hasbro slowly phasing out the Joepro communicators? I actually didn’t mind them and thought they were a pretty nice addition. The only thing I didn’t like was the light color choice being sky blue. I get that it matches the Joe laser fire but I think it would have been better off using a muted forest or matte green

The picture of Spirit posted above appears to have one.
