To clarify: It's the same comic that comes with the box set... (program/comic)

What the f&ck is that Q force! Is it some sort of piss take? Sorry but that has nothing to do with the original at all. I was'nt too bothered before as I would never want to acquire any of the stuff but that Q Force has pissed me off! As for the Z force medic he looks like some naff Chap Mei figure!
On a positive note the other stuff is'nt too bad. I like the bunker although it would have been better red or black.

Items to buy are strictly limited, so she will not be able to get extras of the souvenirs - BUT, I think she will be able to buy a bunch of comics.

They are $5.00 each (plus tax)

Anyone interested?

She estimates that it will be her turn to buy in about 45 minuts...

Let me know.

One for me, please! Should we start a separate thread?

Not sure what it is, but I haven't got one lined up so that's cool. Also the Aussie dollar is VERY good atm. Thank you your majesty ;-)

I wish they would have given us something different than Jammer and Gaucho. If anything, they should have made a no camo Jammer. I would have rather seen some more t-crotch figures made into o-ring versions. How about Skip, Baron Ironblood and others.

That Natalie figure is ok but how popular is this going to be with collectors?

Dolphin is my favorite of the souvenir figures.

Baron, I will just ask her to go ahead and pick up 10 extra comics - And when that is confirmed, I will start another thread. Is that OK?

I just wanted to make sure that there were folks who wanted the comic :-)

Huh? It's in the forum section, but I haven't updated the main archive yet. Or are you asking me if it's better?

So its ok then for them to ruin Q Force? We go from an ocean going fighting force (with what I will accept was slightly garish clothing) to a bird and a bloke with 2 canoes! Sorry but they should not be allowed to call that unimaginative crap Q Force!
