GI Joe Classified CI Cobra Trooper and Beach Head.

I just got the same pair! It’s hard to tell from the photo but what color eyes on BH and does the trooper have the blue collar? I’m curious if they have gone to a standard or still making the variants. Mine has the blue collar trooper and blue eyes BH.

The Cobra Trooper has a blue collar and Beach Head has brown eyes.  I have a blue eyed Beach Head from when they were first released.  I’ll check on the other shipment of Cobra Trooper and Beach Head later.

I have had mine for a couple of weeks and noticed that the batteries seem to die really fast. I have installed brand new batteries and a couple of days later (with the LED lights off) they are dead. Does your copy do that also?

He tenido el mío durante un par de semanas y noté que las baterías parecen agotarse muy rápido. He instalado baterías nuevas y un par de días después (con las luces LED apagadas) están agotadas. ¿Tu copia también hace eso? 

my batteries were removed by the store, to be shipped, I have to buy them myself

By boat or proxy @spacemanoeuvres? That's a hell of a long trip to get it sent out this late.

Shipped via surface so it took a couple months.  It was in a few layers of bubble wrap but still got a little dinged.

Just got my Roy finally and recently picked up the RPG Tactics game purely for the minis so that I can display them with the SDF-1 in the ep1 scene.  Also got a fan racer from @Xigfrid Shapeways store.  Now I just need a stand mic.  I figured since I'm missing a few key pieces from my collection, they could be filled nicely with available minis from this set and kids logic.IMG_20210719_205202505.jpg.d8b85ad1770c4890e6c4a8b2cab6ac00.jpg

Some stuff arrived recently:

 

i4fmAFC.jpg

Always wanted a great Airwolf model, & aftermarket prices of this Aoshima 1/48 is mostly kinda crazy. But managed to find one for a price I thought was quite reasonable.

The 1/60 Zentraedi uniform is a KO from Taobao. The quality of stitching & cloth material is pretty good, and colors appear similar to pics of the original. There are some key differences when comparing to @jenius review of original. The zipper head is different, there is no hole in cap to thread Max's head laser through in battroid, and the logo on the cap has way off proportions. But NBD, I plan to display in gerwalk mode, so the cap will be unused.

Whilst waiting for the VF-1 of the month to arrive (Chogokin VF-1D), this Yamato 1/48 VF-1S 25th Anniversary still makes for a formidable display. Snagged this off YAJ for only Yen 5500, advertised as junk. From what I can tell, it only has a bent, half-snapped head laser, which is easily fixable. Of all the different VF-1 toys of any scale, I think the Yamato 1/48s have the best landing gear detail..

That's a great deal for that VF-1S.  A bent head laser is not a big deal, especially for that price.

@MKT - Friendly warning on the Airwolf model/toy - My electric motor died less than a year after I got it and I maybe turned it on like 10 times, also beware of the door hinges on the cockpit, they are verrrry fragile. One of mine is "sprung" and doesn't close all the way now. I also had to put a tiny drop of CA glue on the tail rotor to keep it from coming off.  Just FYI.

Thanks for the heads up @derex3592. I got it as BIB item, the doors look properly shut, but I guess I'm never opening them now. Motor's already dead, which I hear is par for most of the used examples out there. At moment I'm struggling to keep it standing with the landing gears down; it keeps wanting to tip over backwards, even with the weight of batteries in its compartment to counterbalance the front.. Can't wait to set it up with the rest of 80's vehicle heroes.

@borgified Yeahh these old 1/48 Yammies non-canon scheme still have great life to them. They make great complementary pieces to the new Bandais..

@sh9000That Fett prototype is awesome!  I feel like we're living in a toy golden age.  So much good stuff out there.

Supers for my Roy (from @Skull005) just hit my door this afternoon. Late to the party, but glad I had the chance to get one set. Now just counting down the days to get my hands on that sweet, sweet GBP.
