Cover Girl would be easy to do. And SS could offer both a brown short hair and a long blonde hair sculpts.

Scarlet has a more recognizeable costume, not a jacket tight pants and shirt. Guess people got too used to how she was in the movie??


I guess there can only be one red head per license??

Yeah I always hated that costume on Spirit.

How the ____ should I know who's who with the DDP crap?! :dunno

They took creative license with virtually everything including introducing the fact that Zartan isn't really Zartan, but some schmuck who took over the Dreadnoks for Zartan. Besides, when exactly did Cover Girl get red hair?

the figure does have a light brown, I always thought it was a reddish color, but maybe it is just the lighting.

http://i48.tinypic.com/2repevb.jpg

But the costume is definitely the same as the cover with some minor upgrades.

I didn't always agree with ddp, but it was a good read for me, I have been following Joe since the Marvel run, and continue to do so with IDW.

Oh and that issue was actually Image, not ddp.

The file card shows different, everyone should know the colors on the figures aren't always accurate, should I say SS costume is yellow because of a few thousand or so that changed, no.
http://i49.tinypic.com/mshugo.jpg
http://i50.tinypic.com/e0h092.jpg

there is a pretty fine line between the hair color, the filecard shows more of a strawberry blonde or part of the "ginger" species. The original figure which I think is more lighting and fading is a light brown, but then the new pic which is on the same page on yojoe.com shows her hair a bit more reddish.
Then of course the figure and the comic pic is both light brown/auburn and red/orange.

Be what you "think" it is nothing goes through without HAsbro's say so, and they obviously had her as a redhead, now the movie....well let's just not include the movie when talking about ARAH.

Image was to issue 25, then ddp took over and finished that series and continued with America's elite, 50+ issues for them. I do not believe it was garbage, it had alot of fun and interesting stories much like how the Marvel run was, and America's Elite was pretty damn good.

Wik:
In her appearances following the five episodes of the first G.I. Joe mini-series, Cover Girl's long, blond hair was suddenly short and brownish-red (resembling Scarlett's in color and style, albeit without a ponytail). Her eye color even changed (she now had brown eyes), and she wore a mostly beige uniform with a brown leather jacket. Her personality had changed as well stressing a more tomboy attitude.

In the animated series, Cover Girl was voiced by Liz Aubrey.

Cover Girl also appears in the animated series, G.I. Joe: Resolute, again as a redhead. In the IDW comic series, G.I. Joe, a new Cover Girl debuts in issue #7. In this series, she again has long, blond hair.

So apparantly she can be brownish-red, red, and Blonde.

You're going to awful lengths to justify being a DDP nut. Regardless of what you say...

1) The figure is always accurate - as that is the main source! When all else fails, go to Hasbro.
2) she has long red hair on the cover of that comic and with as much as DDP bastardized the series, a Scarlett comparison is inevitable.
3) DDP sucks elephant sphincter. :lol

wow man, mature :rolleyes:

I am a G.I. Joe comic nut, so yes that does include ddp, and image which is the original company I referenced, I have them all. The only comic I still collect, and I had at least 30 titles I was buying at one time.

Well the figure is part of the main source, but I would have to agree more with the file card then, as that was more accurate then a company in china putting the wrong shade of red on thousands of pieces of plastic.

I have no doubt there is a comparison with Scarlett, but any real Joe fan should know that that is not Scarlett, they might not know who Covergirl is, but they would know who Scarlett is.

DDP Scarlett:


http://www.toydungeon.de/images/gijoe04/scarlettwave1l.jpg

So I'd say even your precious DDP relies on Joe fans thinking Scarlett has long red hair. Easy to make the jump from here to thinking that was Scarlett on the cover because the artist and colorist gave Cover Girl, what? Long red hair. All one has to do is look at the Forge wannabe (Spirit) and see how far they took creative licensing in character redesign. This is why, what I'll call, hardcore Joe fans dismiss the DDP stuff as fanboy garbage.

Just like there have been and still are many different takes on spidey, Batman etc. Hate it or love it, it is there, and I respect that, and that is why for the most part I enjoy all of it.

Yeah probably not I was just originally mentioning I would like one as a wish list kind of thing, but it has gotten off track...obviously.

I don't know if I remember correctly but I think Hannibal was part of 8 or 9? clones of Serpentor, he was the first one.

And if that sounds silly, remember Serpentor was a clone of a bunch of dead historical characters. So yeah...:D

yeah, but it is there.

I don't agree with alot of what Image and DDP did, but it was just another take, I don't agree with killing off Lady Jaye, but it made Flint into practically the Punisher, nothing to live for, no fear.

If anything ALOT of the designs on the costumes were pretty good updates, I don't remember seeing THAT Scarlett in the books, so I don't know what to say about it, not a fan of the neon era.

If it's no big deal to you whether or not to get it, then the smart choice is probably to wait it out.

BUT there were 2000 Han Carbonite, only 750 CC Thrones, I know there are more SW fans then Joe fans, especially ones that like to actually spend money. But that is a bit of a risk, not saying that it can't happen, just a bit more risk. Haven't seen the Waypoint set on second chance yet.

There are still online retailers that have it less than retail. I like going through SS, one for possible flexpay, and two if anything goes wrong with it, the return/replacement is very easy to do, oh and points is a good thing too.

I seem to have trouble getting converted on a flexpay waitlist more than just a regular waitlist.

I guess they want the money now instead of 2-3 months later.

Buttmunch
01-27-2010, 08:32 AM
You can always have them convert your regular item/waitlist to a Flex Pay. I did that with my throne last week. $100 for 2 months isn't as much of a hit as $200 at once.

spazzy

I know. I have a sneaking suspicion that it'll still be available down the road and will be able to be picked up via a Hastings code or Black Friday special. Worst case scenario, that's fine anyway as I really don't have room in my collection for a mammoth piece like this anyway, without disrupting the zen of everything else.

I noticed the same, Im no longer a got to have it now collector of Joe or SW, and I have never missed out on getting anything wanted for cheaper down the road. So I to will take my chances with the Throne also.

I am a must have collector of Joe, and I am already behind on the Cobra Officer and Sniper (I get two of each 12")

So I am afraid that if I miss out on the Throne it will take me awhile before I come back to it. Sure it might be cheaper, but being as it is not an exc it isn't that important to me, and lots of things take priority, so better to just keep the order then regret later.

I'm not disputing that, but I'm still getting both. :huh

Sideshow is just crazy about shipping a bunch of high-end products at the same time. And what's especially frustrating is that all 3 of these items (Idol, Fridge, Cobra Throne) were SDCC items. Two of them from the very same license! Spread 'em out at least another week or two, yeesh. :duh

Agree with the King!!


SS got people to buy a friggin polystone FRIDGE. That is some blind devotion there.

IrishJedi
01-31-2010, 02:53 PM
It's not blind devotion at all. We're just in on the joke. It's awesome that Sideshow had the sense of humor and balls to do The Fridge™. Even if I wasn't already a fan of the scene (especially because it had so many people with their panties in bunches) I'd probably be inclined to get it on principle alone. :lol If I were blindly devoted, I would have ordered Toht w/ Ark and German Soldier Indy, both of which I happily passed on.

But I digress... this isn't about a futile and unnecessary JOE vs INDY argument. It's about the fact that Sideshow is once again apparently charging and shipping three roughly $200 items from two of their biggest licenses within a week of each other.

Thankfully, I'm in a position where I'm not forced to choose financially between any of them (in which case the Fridge is probably the first that would be axed, simply because it's more of a humor vanity item)... but it's no less frustrating.

Plan this stuff better, SSC.

I would have loved to do Flexpay for this but it cost too much in the long run with tax, vat and fedex fees.
I got mine off Alterego and with my points got it below 150 bucks which is the import tax free limit.

Glad to hear its been delayed though, gives my credit card a break for a month. They're about to start charging Flex payments on the Kaneda bike.:monkey2

I cancelled my Clone Wars Anakin and bought the Cobra Sniper's Dragunov from Toy Anxiety instead. I'm realizing that I'm going to kick myself if I lose my Joe focus and don't have funds available for both Duke and the throne when they ship (which I have a feeling will be at the same time.)

In case anyone has forgotten, behold the SDCC video. Duke and CC's throne are going to be the products to own in SSC's Joe line thus far:

How is the amount of the VAT determined?

Vat is 21percent of the total cost.

So the throne $200 + shipping+fedex fees.

Vat would be at least 50 bucks, so the total is looking at $300+:monkey2

We'll I've already gotten my first flex pay last week, so I'm half way there. So it should only be about a month more know for it. Still no word on Duke though. I wonder what his holdup is? They pumped out the Cobra Sniper in just over a month or two after he was announced. Granted he just had a new head an gun and a different colored outfit than the Troopers/Officers. I'm wondering if the new Pro body parts are partly to blame? I think Anakin might have some of them though and he starts charging today. So who knows.

I don't think they ever announced an estimated date beyond the quarter and year (does Sideshow ever really do that?). Sideshow may give some conservative idea to retailers, but since production and other types of issues can come up, it would seem in their interest to refrain from doing this when possible.

Couldn't find the other CC for these quick shots.

The top of the throne feels partially hollow - it's already heavy, if this were full it would weigh a ton. But thumping it indicates that it's pretty thick. There's a magnet to to hold the throne to the base and kind of snaps it into proper alignment.

Here are some approximate dimesions of this for those of you with limited space:

Cobra Throne
10" wide x 14" high x 8" deep

Base

12.5" wide x 2" high x 11" deep

The throne can be displayed seperate from the base though (thanks to those magnets instead of pegs). So here is a great alternative use for the base!

I don't care what anyone says, CCC looks epic in this thing. Way better than the blue version.

I only wish I had room to display it permanently. I have both GI Joe environments boxed up for the time being unfortunately, but I would love to display them.

I briefly considered taking down my Army of Darkness collection (comprised of EVERY AoD action figure from every company that ever made them) but I couldn't rationalize taking down stuff like the McFarlane 18" figure or the Sideshow PF and I also couldn't rationalize only displaying the collection partially. The only other shelf space I have that would accommodate both environments is currently housing my Sideshow Indy stuff.

At least I have room for all the GI Joe figures themselves, though.

10" wide x 14" high x 8" deep

Base

12.5" wide x 2" high x 11" deep

The throne can be displayed seperate from the base though (thanks to those magnets instead of pegs). So here is a great alternative use for the base!

I'm just really glad they went with a magnet to hold it in place on the base. That leaves both the base and throne without pegs or holes. So they can be used sepereately or together and look just fine both ways. Very nice way to handle that, even if unintentional

Good thing it doesn't bother me. However, I prefer CC without a cape, even in a throne setting. I don't think he ever wore one in the comics, and except for couple brief scenes in the cartoon (in one Mass Device episode and the beginning of the movie). I want those Praji gloves though. Until then, the cape stays on.

Damn, just the trone alone is 14" :google

Do you have SS Vader, Buttly? He is the absolute largetest thing that fits on my shelves, with about 1/16" or less to spare. How is the throne compared to Vader?

Felix
03-28-2010, 04:21 AM
Throne is just over 14", about 14 & a 1/4. If you have exactly 14" of space, it's not gonna work. Throne is gonna be my centerpiece while figures go on the shelves. You can't clear a space for the throne Darkness? It'll suck to miss this one.


He was one here:

http://www.cobraclan-et.com/images/Fullview_COBRA_COMMANDER.png

My point was that CC was rarely seen with a cape. He looked ready for action without one. However, you have made me change my mind. Well, you and all the previous Cobra Commander pics. I want to get the Drizzle cape, some German officer boots and Praji gloves. The red inner lining makes the figure stand out much better. Hopefully I can still get one.

I get why fans wouldn't like CCC. What I don't get, is the hate for fans that do. I prefer CC is dark blue or light blue, and black...but for him to have a ceremonial crimson uniform isn't that much of a stretch.
