Man, Hollywood sure loves to 'wash em' black' when it come to adapting certain comics.

So my thought remains clear...Yuck, and I mean yuckety-smuckety. I've find it laughable that those guys ripped-off those uniforms from Metal Gear Soldier and that about sums it all up right there.

Not interested at all. And don't you DARE give that 'give em' a chance' rhetoric. I've been there and done that. I'm not planning on being humiliated again just like 2007.

$100 back in the 80's could

$100 back in the 80's could buy you a U.S.S. FLAGG or a TF Fortress Maximus.

World's Greatest Uncle- Christmas 2009

Being a thirty-something bachelor isn't just all rehab and STDs, you still have to let the kids know they're #1 by dropping a killer toy once a year. That said, The PIT looks VERY 80's and has a functional utility modern playsets seem to lack. Not that there are many to choose from these days. Ah, the big fat 80's... As for the price nobody seems to complain about the sad sack Star Wars reissues like the AT-AT that I had to pay a hundred bucks for two years ago. At least here you can say that some effort went into it. I hope.

Dude, it's the 1980s all over again

I remember when EVERYTHING was like the stuff we see here (although that robo-suit Duke is a very 1990s thing.) None of this "paint" stuff--it's either stickers or it's straight out of the mold. (Indeed, remember how the "feature" used to be that they gave you the sticker sheet and you put them on yourself?)
