Do you think you will end up buying more movie toys then you want just because its been so long since anything new has been out? Im not a huge fan of the movie stuff although i will admit some of it has grown on me but im curious as to what you guys are going to do?

I think I will be getting a lot, but after I go to the convention. Maybe I will get some Joes for Christmas, which would be the first time since Hall Of Fame Rapid Fire.

I am not a big fan of 25th sculpt, and really do not like that 99.67 percent of the 25th line has just been rehashes. So yes, new product is very appealing.

Yes probably so. SE, SS, Destro, CC, probably 2 Night Ravens. 1 to open and 1 to put back.

nope
right now all I want are the wal-mart 2 packs
and the Steel Crusher APV w/ Motor Viper.

Other than that nothing has really jumped out at me

I have just a few figures in mind I am going to buy. But then again, until I see them in person, who knows what I will get.

i want just a few figures. have tons of the cobra soldiers so all the neo vipers are definite pass. hate that stupid chest armor, that just kills the design for me. the double guns on the backpack are nice and some of the colored helmets are nice but the rest of the figures are just horribly designed. think i will get scarlett v2, shipwreck, sgt. stone, paris snake eyes, torn up storm shadow (throw out the stupid artic gear) and maybe some walmart 2 packs (if i can get a hook up as there are 0 walmarts here). all the other stuff i will just wait till clearance time.

just saw the list at bbts for all 37, forgot about these guys agent helix, pit commando, & repainted paratrooper!

Python_Puckman
06-30-2009, 10:51 PM
I wasn't going to buy any of them, but I may not be able to resist getting a Stormy or a Para-Viper... so Yes!

Maybe a couple of Covergirls,Destros and pit commandos for custom parts.That's it for the true movie figs.Might be interested in the Monkeywrench,Thunderblast,etc when I see them in person.

KALASH69
06-30-2009, 10:58 PM
Im just getting the non-roc figures that will be mixed in with the ROC line, you know, Shipwreck, Monkeywrench, etc.

Possibly Ill get "Thunderblast" and I'll be getting Helix for a custom I wanna do.

Thats pretty much all.

I also am going to get a few of those pit-commandos to repaint and such. Thats really the only movie figures I want, and not even because of the movie :D haha.

Im holding out for the upcoming 7-pack and Resolute figures...

Lantern_Lad
06-30-2009, 10:59 PM
Yes. After seeing them at retail, I will be buying more than expected. I will not be buying the Steel Crusher (wasn't impressed), or the PIT (really, really not impressed).

Otherwise, who knows.

Lifeline_MD
06-30-2009, 11:07 PM

Same really. I'm considering a Steel Crusher APV or whatever its called. The hummer.

Absolutely not. I have sit out lines I hate before (Transformers Movie and Animated, Sigma 6) I will sit this out with VERY minimal exceptions (The Rage and Snow Cat I might pick up)

OreoBuilder
06-30-2009, 11:16 PM
I already have. So far, I've picked up:

1x Destro
1x Baroness
2x Neo Vipers
3x Duke
2x Shipwreck
5x Zartan
1x Armored Panther w. Thunderblast

I passed on Viper Commando, Scarlett, Breaker, Heavy Duty, Ripcord, Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, most of the Alpha vehicles and the Night Raven.

I will probably pick up more Zartans, but for now, I've stripped the pallet dry of them. I'll have to wait until I see the figures elsewhere.

I wasn't going to pick up that many, but seeing the pallet in the middle of the aisle at Zellers was just too good to pass up.

Not at all. Keeping a few in my sights but my funds are shifting to DC Universe.

Johnnyakiba
06-30-2009, 11:25 PM
I am going to purchase all the reactive armor suits and all the Snake Eyes. Possibly get most of the odd characters like Shipwreck and Helix.

Helix is a must have for me.

handsomedevil
06-30-2009, 11:42 PM
I have a feeling that I'll set out to buy a couple figures and end up dropping close to $100.

Yes, yes I will.

I wasn't really impressed with the movie snake eyes, didn't look that great, I would rather spend the money on the 25th line.

Barefoot Jedi
07-01-2009, 12:42 AM
Probably yes. I imagine once I see them up close I'll be able to come up with more things to do with them in my Joe-Verse.

MeLikeJinx
07-02-2009, 04:51 AM
After seeing them in person I will probably be buying a few when they hit retail. I am definitely getting Desert Ambush Duke which is something I thought I would never say. And even more surprising is that I will be passing on both the ROC Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow because having seen them up close I don't care for them as much as before. And even though a lot of people think Covergirl looks weird I think the fig looks great... so I will probably get that one too... and also maybe Baroness.

I went to the store, thinking I was just going to buy a couple of figures. But walked out with all the vehicles and 80% of the single figures! That and I bought multiple Turtle-Vipers! Agh, curse my troop building impulses!!

I want to buy more but they aren't out yet. Curse you Hasbro, curse you retail stores, curse you street dates. Oh curse it all. :)

All kidding aside yes I am picking up more than I once thought i would.

Yeah, probably... The troop-builders are starting to grow on me, and I may incorporate them into the 25th stuff, I don't know.

I've already bought some of the MARS Trooper 3-packs. I kind of like 'em, and there's no reason why they can't fit in with the Iron Grenadiers.

Tyroc
07-02-2009, 10:24 AM
I originally planned on getting the unique characters like Helix and Sgt Stone....then decided I'll get 1 of each, then saw them at Kmart and decided to use their layby/ lay away and army build.

Stalker
07-02-2009, 11:48 AM
I expect to buy: The Steel Crusher, Snake Trax, Cover Girl, Armor Scarlett, Baroness, Trenchcoat SE, unmasked SS, and the Gung-Ho 2 Pack. (I already have Destro)

Will I buy more, perhaps the Crimson Hydra, a Mole Pod, Sgt. Stone?!?!?

Probably.

It is going to be impossible for many reasons but I am going to try to buy one of everything. I need more money!

The Conflict
07-02-2009, 11:55 AM
Initially I didnt want any of the movie stuff but now there are 2 or 3 figures I will try to get. monkeywrench is going to be a TRU exclusive right?

dsrader
07-02-2009, 12:13 PM
I will get a few,but the rest i will get for trading to help those who cant find certain ones..LOL

G.I.Eddie
07-02-2009, 12:26 PM
not at all...quite the opposite actually...

i already purchased two off ebay and althought they looked cool, there was no nostalgic attachment and the cool factor very quickly wore off...i gave them a chance...

so unless its a classic or Reslolute based figure in the RoC packaging, i will not buy any more RoC figures...

movie based figures = NO THANK YOU!

After seing them for the first time I can honestly say No! Looking fwd to checking the 2 packs from Walmart. List is getting smaller and smaller.

Uberlad
07-02-2009, 12:50 PM
i'm all about the single packed figs, but i think i'll be avoiding a lot of the movie vehicles this time around. $24.99 seems a bit much considering the first wave of target exclusive vehicles were $10.00.

all other reasoning aside, i will be buying the pitt, mainly for the ping pong table :).

I'm liking the toys more than I thought. Then there is the problem of willpower....

Lantern_Lad
07-02-2009, 09:50 PM
After seeing them in person (and then having them ripped out of my hand as if I was trying to steal them, and not pay for them before their release date) I will reiterate 'yes', I will be buying a grip of them.

Ronin Assassin
07-02-2009, 09:53 PM
Yea I'm going to get a few...

1. gunship
2. steel crusher
3.Ice dagger

Walmart exclusive!!

Duffmann
07-02-2009, 09:58 PM
wal-mart, target, and TRUS exclusives are what I am getting for sure. As far as single packs go I'll get the following.

RoC Ice-Viper
RoC Paratrooper
RoC G.I. Joe Pit Commando
RoC Helix
RoC SE Paris Pursuit

ShakeZula77
07-02-2009, 09:59 PM
I just want a Rage Alley Viper(figure only), a Mole Pod, Night Raven, and a shit ton of PITT Commando's............for now :)

Black Rose
07-02-2009, 10:04 PM
I'll be picking up around 10-15 fig's & Snow Cat. This is more than I originally anticipated.

Cobra-Love
07-03-2009, 04:10 AM
Before I was like " No way, not nostalgic for me etc." now I plan to get a select amount of stuff.

Zoltron
07-03-2009, 04:32 AM
I've already got most of the figs I want.

I had already planned to buy the vehicles. I don't want the vehicles, but I do want the figures.
