It isn't the greatest, but its better than the Z silver mirage IMHO. But yeah, in a Kayak it should be Beaver or cousin Otter ;-)

PS is it just me or is Gaucho's colour bang on? I love that figure.

Oi! No need to be insulting, humby!

Clearly the Joecon team have been going through the site so I'd rather they weren't offended. It's not like they've erased the original Q Force from existence, is it?

This is much, much bigger than the BFTB forum membership. Joe fans who've never heard of Q Force may well visit here on the strength of this.

We should be grateful that the US fanbase has embraced us.

I know, Sam. I'm not sure what you're asking me. I won't be updating the Customs archives for a while yet, I need to finish the Toy archives first.

I just wanted to make sure that there were folks who wanted the comic :-)
Sounds good! Thank you very much.

Have a great time at the convention, Aire!

Amen to that, I actually prefer the new Gaucho over the old one. I will say that only once......

I'm still stunned at the amount of figures etc that we have dropped in our lap. Now if the Joecon guys would only give BFTB members a crack at these exclusive figures too. I have secured Torch and a Shad, but I WANT THOSE ZED's....

So we let them take what was part of our chlidhood and now part of our collections and ruin it with some half arsed effort. I know you have to be neutral Baron and promote the site but that Q force is an insult to us on here who hold Palitoy dear. If they have been through the site why on earth do they think that what they have produced should be called Q Force when it has nothing to do with the original! Their are alot better customs already on here.
I know what you mean Chopper. So Z force already have a bike but we will take a naff one and put Z force logo's on it. Yeah great idea guys! :roll: Although apart from the Medic Z force is good and I would have some of the Shadow stuff slightly different but mainly it is good. I am disgusted by that Q force effort! It was'nt even theirs to ruin in the first place!

Then this isn't really the place for it. I already commented on the thread.

A little off track, but being a Star Wars nut I'd say that the new one is an Endor bunker (a nice one tho) but yours is far more Palitoy.

I think that that Dolphin is more homage to the AF version, which I think is their angle, Humby. I'd say they only used Q force as an identity. Compare it with this;

And its pretty good, I think.
