I thought they paid homage to the Brazilian figures and Tiger Force in the collector's club.

Why did no one tell me they were making 6 inch Joe figures??!?

And there better be like 8 Snake-Eyes per case because if he’s the fucking short pack in the box, imma commit murders.

If I get caught suckin' on 6" Scarlett's titties I might die of embarrassment - just letting you know now I've appreciated our friendships.

Because most of them look like generic crap.

Saw a retro card Snake Eyes (3.75") at Walmart. The figure looked fine and had a ton of weapons. Very well could have been the 2011 POC version. The cardboard was barely a step up from cardstock and was kind of wavy. I think it was $20, which seemed insane.

Saw the Classified Cobra Commander and Lady Jaye on clearance for $9.20 each.
I shouldn't waited, especially since I haven't even opened Lady Jaye yet.

The ReAction figures have gotten waaay overpriced.

Fuck me, the second I decide to back out, they do this.

https://hasbropulse.com/products/g-i-jo ... ra-h-i-s-s

This is blowing through bonus unlock tiers so fast, they're not even able to keep up on the official page. Third tier is going to be a third figure, a FEMALE HISS Gunner..

Fuck me,, it's hard not to pull the trigger on this.

The custom Shipwreck seems like it should be part of some story where goes undercover to the Blue Oyster bar from Police Academy.

Speaking of Big Boa...

This line is the right place to finally make that Rocky Balboa GI Joe.

Call Stallone and get it done, Hasbro.

He'd make a great Comic-Con exclusive.

I think at least part of why most people who've quit, quit, is them (all manufacturers, not just Hasbro) constantly making things exclusive that have wide appeal, and vice versa.
