POC wave 2 on card! Recondo still reminds me a lot of Blain from Predator; I think I have some extra miniguns sitting around...

The Volcano Viper will likely see the light of day after all, repainted!

Canceled City Strike Scarlett (I have the mold as the Resolute version, but this had different gear)

More Pursuit of Awesome images, this time from Hasbro. Man, that new VAMP is everything I could want a Joe jeep to be! It's even got a winch!

Cobra Shock Trooper and Snake Eyes are awwwesome (Shock Trooper is essentially a PoC standard Cobra Trooper, and SE is a Commando once more!). I like Duke a lot as a mold, but not the blue on his outfit. Might wait for them to repaint that. Storm Shadow isn't wowing me, but neither is the current desert one, the sole PoC wave 1 I have yet to pick up. (Speaking of which, I wonder if that Jungle Assault PoC Storm Shadow I ordered from China over Ebay (Purloined from a factory, after the figures were canceled) is ever gonna come in the mail? I almost forgot I'd gotten it, but that is the definitive PoC Stormy.)

Repaint of the PoC HISS Tank in classic black: http://www.hisstank.com/gi-joe-news/gi- ... rges-9839/

I like the desert one fine, myself, and look forward to getting it for my birthday (Set aside!)

The Storm Shadow is lame, but the other three are great! Duke has an almost Eastwood-like scowl. http://www.hisstank.com/gi-joe-news/gi- ... ages-9874/

Next Sideshow doll is Dusty! http://www.hisstank.com/gi-joe-news/att ... ntid=12176
May want that one, if the face isn't too ugly; Dusty was one of my favorite figures when I was a kid (And I prized him since this was in '93 and he was from the early 80's lineup), so I have enough of an attachment to want a doll of him.

Great news from the Joe Q and A recently was that Snake Eyes in wave 3 comes with the goggle head and the visor head, instead of one or another being a chase, as originally planned by Hasbro. Now we have 'im in package! http://www.hisstank.com/gi-joe-news/att ... ntid=12441

Desert Sniper! http://www.hisstank.com/gi-joe-news/12- ... gure-9949/
This continues to be the better Cobra Trooper mold; the headsculpt isn't snaring at us. (I have the black-uniformed version set aside from X-Mas!)

Nice, sneak peak at Sideshow General Hawk! http://www.hisstank.com/gi-joe-news/att ... ntid=12475
Hawk is another favorite character (The criteria for getting me to want to shell out for one of these things), so I hope for a great finished product. Headsculpt looks promising so far!
