Re: How does Ironblood's conversion to Cobra Commander fit...

Good question. I like everybody's different versions of events regarding World's Enemy No 1. My take is that :baroness: is either the daughter of :baron: or the much younger wife of :baron: , and that :cobracommander: was a member of :shadow: but had ambitions of his own and so plotted with :barones...

Re: Hasbro's G.I. JOE Q&A Round Two 2008

One question I always wanted to ask Hasbro that involves the Red Shadows is this ... "Given that the Crimson Guards first appeared in the 1985 GI Joe wave of toys, were these red uniformed enemy figures inspired, at least in part, by the success of the similarly outfit Red Shadow toys that were such...

Re: Its Official IDW has the License

I've tried to register with the IDW forum, but though I got an email back they never activated my account, I've even emailed the address in their joining email but no joy. Sadly from what I've read some of them are already dissing the Baron and this site. Shame on them. I'll go into bat for our side...

Re: What happened to Action Force after 1985?

meertoh is bob on. I remember going into Toy & Hobby in Chester around May 1987 and seeing the "new" Action Force figures, they were the 1985 Joes and on American style cards (just Action Force replaced the words GI Joe, and International Heroes instead of RAH as meertoh mentioned). I remember it vi...

Re: Its Official IDW has the License

Well I intend to show my support as a reader of the current Joe comic, and as a major fan of BAF as a kid. Just got to wait for them to activate my account now I've registered. I do think it would be a good plan to get in early and get a strong campaign going for our beloved Shadows. Are IDW the sam...

Re: GI Joe Movie

Hey there, S.A.S.Sparrowhawk, welcome to the forum! I'm always reluctant to comment on movie promos, they very rarely capture the character that makes it onto the screen. The thing that made the BAF Baroness for me was the way she jutted her chin out - if the actress doesn't capture that then for m...

Re: So Anyway, I Talked To Hasbro's Licensing Dept. ...

I really wouldn't be surprised if the toys for the new GI Joe Movie weren't at 3 and 3/4 inch scale, I bet Hasbro make bigger figures just for the film. The problem over here I believe in selling military toys (which let's face AF is) nowadays is that young people now longer respect (or fear) figure...

Re: GI Joe Movie

I like the casting of Sienna Miller as the Baroness, I always thought the Baroness should be a stuck-up English upper class b*tch and not Russian (or whatever accent the cartoon tried to sound like) or Austrian like the BAF comics. Most of the costumes look a bit too Batman/X-men for me, damn I want...

Re: GI JOE COLLECTORS CLUB HAS A COMIC THIS YEAR FOR THE CON

HEADHUNTERS LED BY GRISTLE JOIN COBRA Nice to see Gristle get some love, I really love that figure got a great attitude about him.
