I remember awhile back seeing at least a preliminary listing of VvV wave 4. Anybody still ahve that list? Has there been any new news about what characters will be included? (aside from Hawk and Maximous)

Hahahaha, I got two guesses to who Link is. He's either that video game icon who's an elf dressed in Robin Hood's clothes and uses a sword, or we got ourselves another computer specialist.

Maybe for Series 5 we could have Super Mario and Fungoid, the Cobra Mushroom Trooper

If the linup holds to form, we'll get:
-The 274th version of Duke
-Venomus Maximus, aka the Laughing Stock of the Line. This fig is gonna be an even bigger joke than Greedo shooting first.
-Another Kamacrapa....I mean, Kamakura (assuming Hasbro hasn't learned their lesson from wave 2). I think it's been way too soon for another Kamakura.
-Night Creeper: a hopefully NON action attack army builder.
-Link: Why oh why is he NOT in a two pack with either Princess Zelda or Ganon? LOL
-Gen. Hawk: It's about freakin time they 86'd that Tomahawk business! lol
-Over Kill: The badly sculpted BAT's need an equally as badly sculpted leader, complete with Speedo's and matrian antennas.
-Stormy: The o-ringed verion of Stormy perhaps? I'm crossing my fingers, that's for sure.

Which Storm Shadow do you want? I'm really hoping for the series 1 Stormy, the one that was supposed to be part of the Mission Disc Wave 3. I really like that mold.

You know, if some of you would check reputable sites you may find out what is going on in the Joe world. And Deogg... try to keep the humor to a minimum. It don't work for you.

Wave 4:
Duke (o-ring) vs Venomous Maximus
General Abernathy vs Overkill
Link vs Night Creeper
Unknown Joe vs Alligator V-Troop (unknown name)
Kamakura (o-ring) vs Storm Shadow (o-ring)
Electric Eel with Swamp Rat

Link, for those who haven't been keeping up since January when this first came to light, is a former Navy SEAL who is working as a veterinarian at the Zoo where Cobra steals the animals from in Valor vs Venom: The Movie. He's got a background in genetics and he is instrumental in combating the Venom threat.

Hmmm...sounds like the Alligator V-Troop is the only that sounds interesting. Say, why exactly are Electric Eel and Tunnel Rat in this wave too? This has been happening since wave 2. Wave 2 had Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow from wave 1. Wave 3 had Duke/COBRA Commander from wave 1. Wave 4 is then going to have Electric Eel/Tunnel Rat from wave 3? Why can't hasbro just be more creative and keep all six two-packs in a single wave that haven't been previously released? Ay yi yi, what a headache! :mad:

Kamakura vs Storm Shadow: I like the idea, being a ninja fan BUT the sculpts will decide if its a yay or a nay...

And YoJoe ISN'T one of those?

Well, let's hope that Kamakura is O-ringed. That Wave 2 figure was just plain awful. I don't mind seeing a repeat figure that soon IF it's to fix/redo a really bad previous figure. Is the O-ring Stormy the one that was linked on here a little while back? If it IS, we might have a decent fig on our hands here.

Alligator V-Troop.....does sound interesting, kinda like a Croc-Master v2 of sorts. If it comes with a big freaking gator, that'd be awesome.

Electric Eel/Tunnel Rat being in two straight waves makes like no sense at all. But then again, neither do most of the figures out nowadays.

Ask me where I'd like your sig Deogg and I'll tell you. The language is offensive, the intent is flame bait.

As for Tunnel Rat, he is not in wave 4. Re-read the post. Electric Eel with Swamp Rat. It's an intended troop builder package.

Now the big question is, where will Slash fit into all of this since he was MIA from wave 2. My guess is that the troop builder pack may go bye bye replaced instead with o-ringed versions of Slash and Slice. Nothing solid, we'll have to wait until Florida on that.

Ninja Lightining? Sounds like a song, "where there's kung fu fighting...you're fast as lightning..." :D

Ninja Lightning? Like the Ninja Force Ninja Cycle? Or are they just re-using the name like Thunderwing, Avalanche, etc

Eagle Eye, what's with the attitude? So you knew something some of us didn't. Why couldn't you simply share the info without implying we're all ignorant here or something? Needlessly rude. :rolleyes:

Like that battlelines place where you take news other people & places post for your... what's it called... Battle Briefings? All you do is rip off other people's time and effort for your weekly info blurbs.

And nice flamebait...

Amen to that.

And just what IS your problem with my sig? I think there's more important things to be concerned about than somebody's signature on a messageboard.

I agree!! And saying Kamakura always reminds me of the 80's Culture Club song with Boy George... Kama-kama-kama-kama-kama-kamuuura

The Big Bad Toystore list seems to have at least a few errors...

The Snake Eyes with Ninja Lightening is actually the Snake Eyes with Ninja Lightening Cycle. It's a 12" figure with bike that was cancelled from wide release and will now be a TRU exclusive for Christmas.

I don't think they'd re-release an already done troop builder either. The Gung Ho vs Wild Weasel pack was listed as the Gung Ho Mission Disc figure (now cancelled).

this is funny bc any rational normal person would find the truth in the sig. most new sculpts are trash. i have just recently found a few that are good but most of them deserve to be melted down into a pile of plastic goo which by the way will look better than what they were before hand.

That is your opinion.

You have a right to speak your mind, but you have no right to force your opinion on others or belittle something others like.

There are many of us (more than there are of you) who enjoy the new toys.

I love the boards here, but one thing that really annoys me is that a simple post can suddenlly turn into an argument. IMO, personal gripes should be left out of posts so people like me you want to talk about G.I.Joe can do so.

At any rate, I'm even more annoyed with wave 4. We've known about Venemous Maximous for ever so nothing much we can do about that, but another Kamukura? The GvC and Spy Troops lines were so good with releasing a variety of new and old figures. Why all the redos? It's not like they're even repaints to keep things cheap. If Hasbro is going to spend the money to make a brand new mold, then why not make a brand new figure or a brand new resculpt of a classic figure we haven't seen yet? Do people really care that much about Wild Bill, Gung Ho, Kamukura and Duke?

Anyway, time will tell. If that new BAT revolt theme fails to offer a decent assortment of new figs, that will be the end of collecting the new stuff for me.

Really, at this point, all we've got are some possible lists, we'll have to wait until they are actually released to know for sure. Two weeks ago we weren't even sure what was going to be in Wave 3. As for the Snake Eyes with bike, there is always the possibility that it could be in both the 12" and 3 3/4" lines.

Offensive...? That is funny, anyway I am somewhat anxious to see what these look like, but I have been thoroughly dissapointed with most of the others. The real problem we have run into with these waves is that the idea pond has been covered my moss and almost dried out. But I will wait to pass judgement on this when I see them in person.

"Sigh" :rolleyes:

(turning to face EEJ)

EEJ, that's just the way Deogg is. We've all learned to accept his vitriolic hatred of new sculpts a long time ago.

It's nothing personal, it's just his nature.

However, you're taking it personal because the new Joes are too closely attached to your ego. . .for some strange reason. tongue.gif

(turning to face Deogg)

Deogg, that's just the way EEJ is. It's his nature. He'll defend any and all Hasbro products regardless of real or perceived quality.

I know it's hard to believe, but that's how he really is.

Any reaction to his direct and personally pointed rude comments will not affect him as he has long demonstrated that he doesn't want friends, only admirers.

We just agree to nod our heads, smile, & try our best to ignore him ;)

I'm thinking that GiJoe needs a new indian guy like spirit... He was a great character. Maybe if the made a mold where you could put him in warm water and his face would become painted. They could give him a bow and arrows, put a big horn tattoo on his chest. And yes, they need a name, they could call him full-a-bull. Makes sense, b/c thats how the last few waves have been.

Oh, now be fair ;) .
When I see something that's actually good, I have no qualms about saying so just as much as I blast anything that sucks. It's just that the stuff that absolutely sucks VERY far and away outnumbers the stuff that's actually good (or at least halfway decent).

Does trying to censor people who have views different than his count as defending Hasbro products?

Deogg!

Just ignore EEJ,He's a hypocrite and flambaiter who looks for trouble and worships the crap Hasbro release's into the cesspool(market).

To him, if you dont like the newer garbage action figures and are vocal about it, he takes it to heart and writes you off as a GI Joe Hater...Just ignore his stupidity.

Ok, this has gone far enough, the name calling is very immature, no more of that.
