I sure would rather have that Steel Brigade that has been on eBay for the last year or two.
you mean that Tiger Force SB? That's one I rather have as well. With the mold for the Steel Brigade head available at the factory, I really don't know why MC, decided to go with the blackstar head instead.
unless the origin SB figure is one that is stuck in that chinese factoty that the governtment won't release. I think that's the reason those black officer/troopers have the old heads...cause the new ones are in that same factory and hasbro can't get to them.
just stabbing in the dark here.
There is a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness".
Prozac's ebay auctions
So am I to get that the Steel Brigade is now like the G.I.Joe force that fights the Iron Grenadiers? Or was this the best group they could come up with?

Now thats a mystery, I mean even if in some dream I wanted to army build the Steel Brigades, my wallet would sober me up pretty quick. I would like to eventually get three if I ever do get the three Skyhawks.Originally Posted by dockingbay97

i would have to say i'm kind of a gi joe snob. theres a lot of things with "G.I. JOE" on the box that i turn my nose up at. i think i'd probably describe myself as "overly picky". but i love this stuff. the dragonsky with the flame thrower, the hydrofoil is pretty sweet, the skyhawks are incredible. i thought the iron grenadiers were pretty cool, but these just bowled me over. man i need to get myself a money tree.
a big one.
...like the size of a redwood.
2004 convention extra items
$50 Zartan/Hawk Morphing Set
$50 The 2004 Dreadnok Stun
$65 2004 Tiger Ray Hydrofoil
$40 Zanzibar & Thrasher Dreadnok Drivers
I thought the prices where too high, and I didnt buy anything. I still see items on MC site still for sale. Which means he still has stock of the sets and didnt get rid of the items. So I hoped things would change this year...
speculating, and not including 2nd market price increases..
$28 Iron Mech
$60 for Steel Brigade Command 3 Pack3
$35 for Steel Brigade Trooper 2 Pack
$35 Steel Brigade Skyhawk 3 Pack
$75 Hydrofoil with Blue Cobra Deck & decals
Like most of us, I dont have an money tree in my back yard. I have a budget I use to buy new joes everymonth. Even if I combine the next 6 months budget I still cant get everything I want because I have to factor in......
$30 GI JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO Single Figure Case Pack (8 Figures)
$10 3-Pack: GENERAL ABERNATHY, FLINT, and TUNNEL RAT Figures
$10 3-Pack: ZARTAN, COBRA COMMANDER, and ZARANA Figures
$15 Night Ops Humvee Vehicle
$40 GI Joe 3.75 Night Watch Figure 6-Pack Set x2 a must
I didnt even figure the exclusive figures. I wasnt able to get a boxed set, I was hoping to pick up a bagged set or just 1 or 2 figures from the exclusive set like I have done in the past years.
My wallet can't handle this. I am going to have to make some hard choices.
I dont have a Hydrofoil (1985 or 04) I like the 05 version, but I know a camo version is coming out ..... do I get the orginal, 04, 05, or wait for the new version???? any advice??
I backed off the Dreadnok Drivers and stun since I have the orginals and didnt see the point and getting a repaint.
The Zartan/Hawk Morphing Set was toooooo costly for 3 figures....
but I do really like the $35 for Steel Brigade Trooper 2 Pack and the
$35 Steel Brigade Skyhawk 3 Pack.
But will those be available....if the are affordable and seem some what reasonable every one is going to want one and they will be hard to get.
Sorry for the long post.... I am just trying to figure out what to get and express my fustration.....
I'm starting to think smoking crack and chasing it with heroin would be cheaper.....
Gi joe helped me to learn to swim! And knowing was half the battle!
