Re: Question about old XD Vietnam figures

I took a comparison photo of my old VC figure with the new one I just got. Sorry, not the greatest quality since I was using my phone for the photo http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll210/MorianMiner/VC.jpg I'm sure it is hard to tell from the picture, but the one on the left is my original, with t...

Re: Question about old XD Vietnam figures

These are all carded figures. I have a couple originals and comparing the two, the packaging looks the same. Definitely not someone's custom work.

Question about old XD Vietnam figures

Long time, no see Need to pick the brain of the "old timers" around here. I just picked up an auction of all seven of the original 7 XD Vietnam figures (the series with the NVA and VC). When I opened the package, I was surprised that all the figures had painted skin tones rather than cast in "flesh"...

Re: 1/16 tanks

Was out running my HL Walker today, and the one track broke. Wondering how common this is with the HL plastic tracks - is it worth getting a replacement set of plastic tracks, or is this a common occurance?

Fry's grocery stores had them before Christmas. Pretty much half case of new figs, half case of old repacks. On occasion, at random stores in certain neighborhoods, you can occasionally find a Temple Guard hiding on a toy shelf.

The pieces I got rid of I knew I would never own again, because I know I would never spend that much for any "toy". If something is worth that much, I won't enjoy having it because I won'...

Since I haven't been on the board for a while, I was not aware the Fallschirmjaers were showing up. Only found the Major, and of course this is a figure I already have an extra of. Still, was not about to leave him there.

If a company is going to make a train model, power it to get the interest of the train crowd. But, if someone didn't - no biggie. There are plenty of display models that have been released in various scales that are easily modified into powered units, if desired.

Actually, there is a very good selection of 1:20.3 stuff. It all depends on what XD you want to use. There is a bunch of equipment in 1:20.3 that was use...

The Hulk figures are actually old GI Joe molds with one new head. Also in that line is a repainted GI Joe Humvee. Hasbro doings its usual cross-pollination of toy lines (actually, I think its pretty cool)

True, there are ways around it. But how hard is it for Hasbro to standardize? :roll: It seems only their GI Joe group understands they can make life easier for customizers to army build.

Stupid f@#$@#$ Hasbro! Was going to do some German/Russian head-swaps - and Hasbro didn't use the same size neck balls! I don't get why on the SW and now Indy line, Hasbro uses diff neck balls, but uses the same on the GI Joe figures. Oh well.

I'm not sure if its a benefit if the weapons are removable. I use several of the McFarlane 6"-scale weapon packs to provide more realistic guns for my 8"-scale GI Joes.
