Re: Elite Force M1114 Up-Armored Humvee

Meijer stores also have these, and the SEAL boats, Little Birds and figure packs. Only thing is Meijer is only located in 6 mid-west states (and I'm not in any of them). :(
Happy hunting.

Re: New Elite Force 5-pack at Target

Great finds, Skorzeny!
I've yet to acquire the newest BBi set, but looking at the pictures it's odd only one figure comes with a bipod.
And that vehicle on the bottom left of the back of the card looks very interesting! I wonder/hope we will see that at Target as well.

New Elite Force 5-pack at Target

I say new, but looking at the pictures, I think everything but the HALO guy has been made before (maybe the HALO guy as well?). Haven't found them locally yet, but the tags are up. Target will also have one of those cheesy carded dune buggies. https://www.target.com/p/elite-force-navy-seals-action-f...

Re: New BBI Elite Force 1/18 Army Rangers

Another find;
I hit a Ross the other day and found the BBi Air Assault glider/parachute figure for $4. Already have one, so I passed. Really cool guns, though.

BBi Elite Force Navy Gunboat at Ross!

(Mods/Admins, sorry if this belongs in an existing thread) Hit a Ross after church on Sunday and found the Elite Force Naval Special Warfare Gunboat from earlier this year/last year....for $15! They only had one, and since I already had one from before, I passed. (Sorry for the grainy cellphone pics...

That would be the 4 newest ones. I still need to find the previous wave, or at least the two from that wave I want.

Re: New BBI Elite Force 1/18 Army Rangers

FOUND IT!
Went to a TRU out of town and found 3 of these sets and 3-4 of the Marine sets on a side-cap. Picked one and $23 later I was on my way! :D
Thanks, guys!

Now to find the last 2 waves of singles.....

Re: New BBI Elite Force 1/18 Army Rangers

NOOOO!!! How did I miss this!?! :( I never saw these in stores and the web site is sold out. I never saw the Marine 5-pack at my local TRU, so it's questionable if I'll eventually see this. On the plus side, I DID find the Marine 5-pack at Ross for $13, so maybe the Ranger set will end up there (I h...

Re: New Barracuda Submarine 1/18 Scale

Thanks for the cool pictures, Karl Dak! :) I completely agree; as a scale model it's WAY, WAY off. BUT as a TOY, which is what it's intended to be, (sold at TOYS R us for crying out loud), it's unbelievably awesome. As a G.I.Joe collector I'm used to under scale vehicles, and chock it up to G.I.Joe ...

Re: 3.75" Military Dress Uniform Figures (1980's Cheapy Figu

The name of the line you're talking about is "Department of Defense", and were made in 1987 by Fishel. This information comes out of an old toy book I own (gotta like old school books), so I don't have any pictures, but the book shows a Dress Blues Marine, Dress White Navy and Air Force Officer.

Re: New 1:18 for 2014 ?

I miss the good ol' days of many releases from a couple different companies, most under $100.
Are those days gone forever? Even 1/18 G.I.Joe is on it's last breath.

When you say Knights, do you mean the figures with actual armour? The only Timeline figures I've found are the girl and the guy with just a sword.

Thanks.
