    i don't know if anyone here collects the joes.. but the new set is out. i picked up almost all of them tonight. the duke pack hasn't been realeased yet and i didn't get the wet-suit pack yet. i was wondering what anyone thought of them. for those that care but just don't know, hasbro has started with all new sculpts of the joes. they have started releasing them in two-packs.
    the packs are..
    Duke vs. Cobra Commander [​IMG]
    Gung-Ho vs. Destro [​IMG]
    Wet-Suit vs. Cobra Moray [​IMG]
    SnakeEyes vs. Storm Shadow [​IMG]
    Heavy Duty vs. Cobra C.L.A.W.S [​IMG]
    and Frostbite vs. Neo-Viper [​IMG]
    looks like the joes are back.. with a vengence [​IMG]

    I had no idea these were coming out. I loved the "little Joes." I had seen the reissues in the two packs but not these. Where did you find them? I must have them.

    Just curious of how much they are going for. Most of my money is going to collecting the Simpsons figures, but if the price it right.[​IMG] I still have all my original Joes from when i was growing up. It is ashame the new transformers can't live up to the old ones.
    One question is there gonna be a new Joe series?

    Hey everybody,you know I never thought there were also toy lovers hiding in the HTF.must be a connection between toys and ht [​IMG] . Anyway I did happen to see the wet-suit and snake-eyes two packs and I wasnt very impressed.Not to mention theyre going for $8.00 @ target and 7.00 @ wal-mart. Was anyone else dissapointed that the old waist poseability being missing?the sculpts were okay but I felt the proportions were a little off. for anyone interested this line was rushed,they almost scrapped it because so many complained about the missing waist articulation,which is why starting with the next wave youll see the return of the o-ring waist and NEW sculpted weapons,not rehashes of old ones.(looking forward to Zartan!)

    the o-rings will make their return with the next wave of figures. and the "huge" joes of now is perfectly fine with me bc the joes have always been about change. they have changed all through the years with the swivel arm and the swivel ball neck. so they are going to change..

    Ugh, what a disgusting Snake Eyes!

    Kinda neat to see these though. I've been enjoying the new GI Joe comic book series, and the old series is being reprinted in volumes of 20 issues starting in Februrary.
