    What’s your complaint? The goofy ass coloring or the running change of muted paint apps? Or is it that the best figures are all Target exclusive and impossible to get for less than twice retail? Or lack of new releases that aren’t pre-order or target exclusive?

    Those G.I. Joe figures are such a disappointment. The designs are way too busy, they took all of the simplicity out of the original character designs.

    They really over complicated a simple thing. They could have used the original few waves of figures from the 80’s and just upsized the designs. They could’ve went early 90s neon nostalgic. Or even used the redesigns they did in the early 2000 that I enjoyed for the most part. But instead , they reinvented the wheel , and to further abuse the analogy, put spinner hub caps on it.

    Regardless, I still own all but the target exclusive figures. So I guess they’re getting my money either way....

    Did they do any better or worse with the Kong or Godzilla in that line? I think they all match one another.

    Does anyone have a list of the new mini figures out for the movie? I saw a Behemoth on eBay, maybe a Skull Crawler too.

    Ill link a few of the new toys now.

    I'd say at least for the 10 dollar toys its a mixed bag for me. Hong Kong Godzilla is looking pretty good with the semi translucent parts and paint. Kong was kind of half assed with nice paint on the front representing neon light and absolutely no paint on the back. Mecha Godzilla is just awful looking. Its like some one went in there garage and tried to make a Godzilla outta whatever scraps they could find.

    And final picture is the Godzilla toy we got last year with the nicely painted body and translucent spikes which is still a nice buy.

    Yeah I got lucky I guess! Don’t collect these but I’m a sucker for the chick heroes/villains. Also, would like to find Roboto!

    Now I have that one! I saw another one on the pegs about half a week ago but I had other obligations to take care of. I've been trying to get two of each. One for play and one to collect. They made the off shot characters much harder to find than He-Man and Skeletor which is equally as frustrating. But I still keep my hopes up in finding them. Its been fun in the past year and a half toy hunting.
