Scarlett doesn't ride "shotgun", she rides "machinegun":

If anyone can squeeze off a head-shot from the back of a bouncing Humvee, it's Snake-Eyes:

And of course Roadblock's up top with the big .50 roof-gun:

Now I need to get one of the '05 TRU HISS tanks, boot Night Creeper out, and load it up with Cobra Troopers. :)

Cool way to display your 25th joes man.

A 25th anniv. Repeater would blend in nicely ;) (we can only hope)

Thanks. =)

There's space in the back for him, if I ever see one.

You should totally post a pic of gung ho doing a drive by on that one cobra trooper on your desk. :cool:

Cool! That is one of the reasons I haven't been to up in arms about vehicles. I haven't gotten the last of the New Sculpt vehicles and they are pretty sweet.

I should note that they were a b**** and a half to seat. ;) It would have been a lot easier if I could have removed the top and reattached it afterwards, because there isn't a lot of clearance. Scaralett actually went in without too much trouble, and Duke went in ok after sliding his legs under Rollbar's seat, but there were a few "watch your head" moments. Gung-Ho is the worst, because he WILL NOT FIT. He absolutely refuses to sit in his seat and stay inside the vehicle, hence his limb-threatening pose (Rollbar warned him that he'd lose an arm...) Rollbar was actually a big pain as well, because of that damn rigid 'skirt' of his. Funny how they create a 'driver' who can't sit properly. :rolleyes:

Aside from the struggle though, I'm pretty happy with it.

And yeah, that poor trooper's never going to get a shot off. ;D

If I may ask without sounding like a complete moron (might already be too late) where did you get the humvee they are riding in? Also are there any other vehicles the 25th seem to fit well in? That humvee seems like a perfect vehicle for them. Very nice!

My friend you must learn to navigate the coolness of the yojoe.com site. It's a GI Joe Humvee from a couple of years ago:

Thanks Jay!

I appreciate it. If you notice my low number of posts I am still relatively new to the posting deal, but I have spent numerous wasted man hours at work surfing through the YOJOE site. :D Everytime I get on here I never know where to start and there is such a cornucopia of JOE goodness it is overwhelming! But I will definitely have to search through the older vehicles they produced. I quit collecting years ago(probably around 92), but once this 25th line launched I was hooked all over again. But this time I'm an adult(technically anyways) and have a real job to support this addiction.:p

Again thanks for answering the bonehead question!

What he said. ;)

There are two slightly different models; the "Desert Humvee": http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/05/deserthumvee/, and the "Jungle Strike Humvee": http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/04/junglestrikehumvee/, both of which have enclosed trunks.

I picked up my Humvee at a local trade show. =)

Unfortunately, that and Zartan's Chameleon are the only vehicles I have at the moment. ;P I'm going to pick up a Tiger Paw soon, but that's pretty much slated for a couple of my older Joes. I do plan on picking up the TRU exclusive HISS and loading it with Troopers though. =)

Don't mention it and welcome. I am still pretty new myself to posting, but I was a lurker for years. There are actually some pretty cool vehicles from the past few years. Hasbro announced that they were re releasing some classic vehicles for the 25th line next year, but honestly I think things like the Humvee are cooler.

You should check out some of the past few years of Joes. 25th gets all the pub now, but some of the stuff Hasbro did in 2003-06 isn't that bad.

jay,
I will definitely do some research on those later vehicles and then hit up ebay. Has anyone received their preorders of wave 2 or 3? I've read other posts and some lucky shoppers have found both in stores.

I like the pics. Right now my night ops humvee is full of cobra troopers.

Oh no! :eek:

Now Tiger Force will have to rescue it.
