Continuing with my shameless handful of heroes bumping up my post count event, here's Doc Oc! He's actually pretty cool in detail. Green fits him well, and he takes up lots of counter space. I am still not too happy about that hard plastic though. Sparkle Venom is pretty. Looks like I got more Spiderman villains then anything in these 2 packs I found. Hmmm I wonder what I will post tomorrow?

Finally these guys make it to Boise, only to be slightly less cooler then I originally thought they would be. The good news is I only have to buy a few more packs, instead of the dozens upon dozens to collect all 120. My first gripe is the plastic. I was really hoping they would be of M.U.S.C.L.E. Men plastic caliber. The same type of plastic where you can't decide to eat it or play with it. Or, when the plastic bends a bit, the figures kind of bounce off each other. These Marvel pieces are solid hard! They do have sparkles in them though. Nothing beats a sparkle Venom! He's pretty. The price is insane too! What are they thinking, you could get cheaper crap out of a quarter machine at the grocery store, or cereal box, or fast food land. But Sparkle Venom is pretty.
Now I know I am really lazy with the post count of late. So now I can shamelessly post one of these guys every day for a while! Heres Juggernaut. I picked up that pack mainly for him. He looked almost like a M.U.S.C.L.E. man, but again not as cool.

Best part of taking care of you sister's cat, is the spoils. Spoil number 1 is the GI Joe Rise of Cobra Dragonhawk XH1.
When I saw it in her GI Joe stash, I says to myself, that's mine now!
Note how the side missile compartments pop out.
Wild Bill in updated movie attire. I like the baby blue one too from old school cartoon. I will name him, Dark Wild Bill.
So yeah, a handle on the bottom. For Snake Eyes to grab on. Looks dangerous.
#1 Rule, don't let Frankenstein be you mechanic.
Watched the new movie again this week, now on the revolutionary DVD format. Better the second time, as some of the plot holes from first time viewing were explained. Destro needed the money first from NATO, then he needed his warheads back. They shot the Eiffel tower as it had lots of metal to start with, and it was symbolism for CNN. Ripcord was a pilot for crop dusting as a youth, which was similar to piloting a stratosphere city skipping jet. Duke's comment about Destro re-arming the tracking suitcase was very passionate. Storm Shadow tells Snake Eyes "When our Master was murdered (killed can't remember)" - never directly linking him to it. There's more to that story. Still an excellent GI Joe take.
