PostSubject: What did you see today?   Sat May 26, 2012 10:56 pm

We have this topic for Star Wars so I figured I would add it for Joes.

I'll start.

Today I saw the new figures for the next wave of Joes based on the next movie.

Yet another Duke
Roadblock (with a pretty darn good head sculpt)
a new generic Joe trooper
a new Cobra trooper
Zartan
Yet another Storm Shadow
Red Ninja
Cobra Commander (looked like a production error, the uniform was dark almost black but the product picture on the cardback had a blue uniform)
Yet another Snake Eyes

Most of them came with some sort of spring loaded action accessory.

There's a Blue and a Black suit CC version in the Retaliation line.

Saw a few of these at my local Walmart. The figures looked good for the most part. They seem to be much brighter and more colorful than the figures from the first movie. I do not know if this is a good thing or not.

I might pick up a few, but I really dislike the extra spring loaded crap. AND my walmart now has these for the same price as Vintage collection Star Wars figures! 8.96 each!

Yeah, they are a bit on the colorful side. I really don't like the spring loaded "action" gimmicks either. I did manage to pick up the basic troopers. One generic joe and one cobra trooper.

The joe helmet looks like it was heavily influenced in design by the spartan armor from Halo.

Oh yeah, the basic troopers are pretty cool in that it appears they don't come with those spring loaded things. I haven't broken them out of their plastic and cardboard prisons yet, so I might be missing something...

This is my most recent Joe score. Picked it up tonight at my local Toys R Us. Part of their clearance blast, so the 44.99 was an additional 70% off!
