For what it is worth, I didn’t need to heat any joints on my series 1 figures or on Scarab. (That’s a bummer, H-bird!)

Valaverse was offering replacements for Scarab if you purchased directly from them or Dorkside. It seems Dorkside received a small amount of defective versions. Of the 3 I purchased from Valaverse, only 1 broke, but was quickly replaced.

Just realized I misunderstood - I was referring to the Swarm figures from wave 1, of which I had one with a broken hip. I have a few scarabs ordered from Dorkside but they're waiting on the weapons pack before they ship. With the earlier Swarm figures, I contacted Valaverse and they directed me to Dorkside; Dorkside didn't have any replacement stock available and offered me credit which I declined since it was out of their hands.

Ugh. I backed out of Action Force because I didn't have the space and didn't want the added expense of a new line, but man are these some good looking figures. Plus I'd been hoping they'd announce a Danielle Kelly figure for a little while now.

With the announcement of a future re-release of the Wave 1 figures I passed on, it's becoming harder to respect my wallet and shelf space.
Whew! Fortunately an awesome G.I. Joe HasLab came along and talked me out of starting up an Action Force collection.

I think I'm in the clear until the AF vehicle Bobby teased starts to materialize.

There's also a 1/12 vehicle that will be crowd funded from Mark2Toys within a month or two, Apparently it will be manufactured with plastics instead of 3D printed. it'll be based on a technical.

/Sigh/

I'll keep an eye out for it, thanks. I have a couple Mark2 weapons on my Joe shelf, but didn't know about Mark2 Toys.

Just can't justify the near $40 for a generic. Thinking about using the announced Blowback instead

I wish they released the Delta Troopers with their accessories as a full figure to save money too, but I understand these are for customizing. the Delta Gear set is awesome on it's own for use on other figures and is worth the money.
These Delta guys however hit me in the nostalgia bone for military green army men, as well as the Joe Green Shirts. I'm paying more than I'd like, but I love this set.

Came here to say the same thing. Can't wait to have these guys in hand.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I have spent so much money this month on figures I wouldn't mind if they didn't arrive until September.
