I have serious doubts that this will sell out anytime soon. With both the Butcher and Luke & Han still available, it would be a surprise if the CCC sold through today. Maybe that means more for non-attendees. The last Joe PPO, Storm Shadow, took about 35 to 40 minutes to sell through the same edition size of 1000, if I remember correctly.

"Big" things, sure. But there will still be some announcements. Brant said that the next INDY figure will be announced before SDCC. And I wouldn't be surprised to see a SW and JOE figure announced before then, too. And other stuff. They're not going to go more than 2 months without announcing anything.

I agree folks will move on. The thing is people actually want this figure though. Some of you keep acting like nobody is getting this figure at all. I don't plan on getting every figure in this line so I'm not bound by that but I am getting it cause it looks cool. What's topical or I should say the in thing is to knock the figure.

Like it or not, this figure could end up sought after. To me, this isn't at all different from the Gunmetal Iron Man. This and Iron Man both look to be based on a Hasbro figure, but obviously improved in both cases. Some like the Iron Man, and some, like me, don't. But I'm happy for those that do and can get it. Same with this Cobra Commander. I like it, I'm getting it. Some don't like it (or hate may be a better word) and they don't have to get it. Lets just stop fighting about it now.

But if it works, then who cares? When something sells out unexpectedly people generally try to get on then. So if the "sold out" is a little premature, it would truely be sold out in a day or two of it being "sold out" instead of lingering on without desperate sales.

yeah, but when you buy stuff like this, it encourages SS to make more variants. They could have at least given red CC different/more accessories.

I think if they had made Zartan a SDCC EX with a ES of 2000, they would have been "safe"; meaning everyone here would have gotten one and been happy about the choice. It really comes down to the ES.

The Josh
05-29-2009, 10:51 AM
A few variants aren't a bad thing. Not to mention its always done for SDCC by the companies out there. If not a variant then its something folks can skip easily enough.

Doing Zartan a character most folks would "really" want is always a bad idea. Thats why they didn't do Kit Fisto as an Ex.

Heh, thats what they said about the dead line at first. It's just one little variant...


As for SW, they did Aayla Secura as a SDCC EX. You really don't see many now-a-days complaing about that decision. It really comes down to the ES of the EX.

The Dead line got a little crazy but its a line that could lead to that seeing as how its not licensed and all that. I don't think they could do the same thing with GI Joe.

I would say she falls under the item folks can live without. I know that my collection is no more less complete not having her.

Red/green at Toyfair
Blonde/red announce as SDCC exclusive
Black/blue annouced as real SDCC exclusive, Blonde Red now International exclusive
Blonde/red released as international exclusive
blue/black&white at Spooktacular

so under 9 months for the 4 babysitters

805 was announced, released, then surprise grey version was released a few weeks after the regular was shipped. Then the black version at Spook with the 4th babysitter.

So if we are going to see Rainbow Commanders I'd expect another one at Spook.

imo if they went all dead babysitter on the cobra trooper that would be 100% acceptable and actually cool. Doing that with a main character in which most people only need/want 1 is not.

So if we are going to see Rainbow Commanders I'd expect another one at Spook.

Nope Cobra Commander doesn't tie in. If we get another version the most logical would be a Black variant. That would go with Black and White Friday than anything else. IF we get another variant it'd be there.

But they didn't. They chose Cobra Commander instead. :duh :duh :duh

I wouldn't mind some Cobra Trooper varaiations! We already got the comic one, kinda coming out. But as far as show exclusives go I wouldn't mind seeing some sensible designs like...

Cobra Officer
Stinger Driver
Glider Pilot (perhaps with a glider :monkey3)

The Stinger driver was my favorite Trooper variation as a kid. I don't know if he'd make too much sense without the Jeep but I'd buy him in a heartbeat!

I can promise it has nothing to do with any Cobras...that don't live in swamps.

Talking about vehicle drivers what about the moccasin driver, Copperhead, always one of my favs as well. I think if done right that could be one sick 1/6 fig.

Loved Copperhead as a kid, still do. I only ever had the Python Patrol version though. The Water Moccassin is such a killer vehicle too, '84 was full of great stuff though like the Whale. I'd gather '84 and '85 are my favorite Joe years, just so much good stuff released in those two years alone!
