re: shitty figs...that question was primarily directed at the FOC figs. Those things are just so half-assed! The WFC figs were fantastic. FOC...not so much. None of the transformations seem at all clever. Shit just folds up however and there are gaps all over most of the figures in one mode or both. I feel like I got evil genie'd because after the WFC figs I was so wishing they'd do a whole line of those figures...and then I more or less get my 'wish' and they're all utter shit. Hollow is one thing, lazy design is another.

I haven't collected the Prime line past RID Vehicon so I don't know how good or bad that's been. There were some pretty cool figures in that line design-wise, though. It didn't seem nearly as shoddy as FOC. Maybe they put all the hacks on FOC duty...

thanks, and yes I still listen.

from the toyfair coverage, I'm hoping to afford the metroplex.

I'll renew my subsrciption to the club, and get the figures, then I'll see what they propose for the 30th anniversary subscription figures to see if I'll renew again.

thanks for the good show, and now we all know what's on joe mind? Seibertron.

Shout out for me! Gonna miss you guys this year, it's always good times. Really looking forward to all my other awesome buds though. Maybe next year will bring us all together again. I get the Botcon blues for so long afterwards so I get what you guys are saying. At some point it turns around into excitement for the con again. I have attended since 2006 and plan to for as long as I can. Botcon is a major high point of my collecting every year. I say it all the time but it truly is about the friendships I have made year after year. Much love buds.

I'm sorry I was just now trying to be funny making an insinuation that I wasn't making a joke on the show and that I was serious.

Have you guys gone to see Retaliation yet? Don't forget you owe us. I forgot that Henshin Cyborg was made using the molds for 12" and 8" GI Joe figures, then shrunk down for the Microman line; and as we all know Microman beget Transformers.

Just been to see the film in questionand I hope that it was just a European edit. no "Yo Joe", in fact at many points in the film, you could have claimed you were watching any generic war on terrorism film.Maybe the fact that with 'Action Force' Flint and Lady Jaye were very Different Characters!!

So what's on Joe Mind? The Seibertron.com Twincast.

Nope that's how it is, no mention of them being a real American hero. It has to be like that to screen in European markets

Chuck,
seriously the first film was full of in jokes, "lifelike hair", "kung fu grip", "knowing is half the battle". this one had nothing, seriously before they jumped into battle it should have been a shout of "YO Joe" rather than the generic "huah!" ( pardon my spelling)Okay the run up to the battle was like a toy advert- Hiss tank here, water maccossin there, 'joe's tank".
Not as much of a Joe fan as a transformers fan, but still buy a figure or two, even if 'shock horror' my battle suit duke and scarlet are currently filling out my 3-1/4"avengers ranks, with Iron Man, War Machine,Cap, Black widow, and steel brigade 'me' at present.

What's with the spoilers? ROC is 3 years old and well, if anyone hasn't seen Retaliation yet, oh well. I think dialing back on the humor was a plus, you did have the Duke/Roadblock moments though.
