View Full Version : buying all the comic packs?

12-18-2007, 09:03 PM
is anyone buying all the comic packs or just getting the figures they like, because in wave one the only figure that intrest me is the hawk. all the rest are just repaints, i'm already tired of the repaints.

12-18-2007, 09:06 PM
Well for me, I'm just getting the one with Hawk. I'm not hard up to buy the others...

12-18-2007, 09:07 PM
I'm with you. i was bummed i wasn't gonna be able to get Doc cuz the first wave was so dire, but wave 3s a big improvement!!!

12-18-2007, 09:10 PM
me too all i want is hawk. and as far as doc goes all the proofs of purchase look the same i think?

i was right there with you guys on the only getting Hawk. But when the chance to get them came, i picked up the snake eyes/storm shadow one too. Something about the blue/black contrast on snake eyes.

I'd like to just get Hawk in this wave, but my resistance will likely be low when/if I see them in the store.

I want Hawk, Breaker (and the head from that vac-metal Destro), Ripper, Torch, Tomax, Xamot, Wild Weasel and Ace. That makes 5 comic-packs......so I'll have to break down and buy 1 more. I think the CG (Fred) and Scar-Face Cobra will be my 6th unless another comic-pack is announced.

i like comic colors. its like an acid trip without said acid. so are those fancy xmas trees. but i also never had the original comics and am buying them all for this reason. that and breaker rules!

I don't want the Duke/CC or first SS/SE packs. I do want everything else, though in some cases just a single figure (Hawk) or a single piece of a figure (Destro's shiny vac metal head. I canceled my pre-order for Wave 1 of the comic packs once it was obvious there would be enough other packs to order Doc. I'd like to get Hawk but I won't die if I don't, and I'm not buying 5 other figures just to get him.

I'll be getting all of wave 1, keeping Hawk and the comics, putting the 5 pack Stormy's gear on the comic one to make it closer to what I want, and giving everything else to the kids and pocketing the stickers for Doc.

Gonna try and collect all of them, no matter if i like them or not.

I'm skipping the repaint packs, and just getting the new guys.

I'm buying them all if I can find them... might as well have a somewhat complete collection. I might even buy two of some... so I can have one MIB and one to display.

12-19-2007, 12:33 PM
well I was going to get just the hawk/scarlett pack ...
that is until this morning when i saw them all, so i picked them all up, the dark blue snake eyes reminded me of the MASS device mini series, and comic duke had a cartoon rifle as well as a comic I had never the opportunity to read before plus I got 3 UPC stickers so I'm happy with what I purchased

I'm getting them all. Mainly because of Doc.

12-20-2007, 04:26 AM
getting them all, this line has a hold on me. its like a need for more cowbell! plus I want Doc.

12-20-2007, 04:33 AM
do any of you know if you need 6 different proofs for Doc, or can they all be from the same comic pack? for example (6 proofs all from Scarlette n Hawks)

It says ANY combination of 6 stickers will work. So you can have the same ones over and over again. Im sure they realize most people wont find every comic pack so its better they did it this way.

12-20-2007, 11:21 AM
I'll be getting them all.

12-20-2007, 11:44 AM
Well I now have wave one in my hand and it's like having a part of the cartoon, I know for some this is an issue, but when looking at these I see what Hasbro was going for and My hat's off to them. Now to get DOC!!!!

I'm buying the first six I can get my hands on and getting my Doc mail-away ready. Then I'm going to get two of everything to keep on the card and one of each to open.

I'm only getting the Hawk pack as well. Those wacky repaints are beyond superfluous.
