5.0 out of 5 stars Crimson Set Is A Must!, December 7, 2005
This is an excellent set to get and if you can get your hands on it, buy it immediately. You will get 4 Crimson Guardsmen with removable helmets to add to your ranks which have great uniforms that resemble the classic guardsmen of yesteryear. You will get a nice remake of Firefly who I like in this color sceme, though I bought many of these 6 packs so I made new custom cobra troopers with the body which is funny that they now resemble the new night troops that came out (Hasbro stole my idea)! You also get a crimson twin which I like the best as he looks like how you would normally see them in the old cartoon at exstensive enterprises in thier corporate suits. I mean these guys don't show up in board meetings or most meetings with Cobra Commander in battle garb so its a must for these guys to have come out in busines attire. Now I do think that it was kinda sneaky to have to buy 2 different packs to get both twins, but hey its more Crimson Guardsmen for you. The only problem is Firefly as it is in a way stupid to have 2 Fireflys. They should of either put an extra guardsmen in there, put in the Crimson Guard Commander, or just set it up that one twin had Firefly, and the other twin had another character in it. Still besides that onlt complaint, this is a perfect set to get and a must get one at that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice jetski for your collection, December 7, 2005
The joes have even more sea support with the warer sled/jet ski combo of the wave crusher. now mind you i'm not all crazy about the orange color (would be cooler as a darker color like midnight blue, or green, though dark colors seem to symbolize Cobra more). This isn't the first line of defense for the Joe but what this loses in armor, makes up for in speed. The wave crusher can slip in behind enemy lines, fine a shot and take off and manueveur with the best of them before Cobra even knows what is going on. Depth charge comes ready as well as he is all suited up in the latest of orange scuba gear, complete with goggles, breathing aparatus, and gun in case trouble comes and he doesn't have access to his Wave Crusher. I would hughly recommend getting this as sea battles are hard to do with the limited amount of vehicals for it, though i think nowadays Cobra really lacks on sea vehicals as I can't recall any in years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good set to get, December 7, 2005
Honestly I have to admit, this isn't my "dream" 2 pack as it comes with Duke which we have many of and a version of Overkill that i'm not really thrilled about. My opinion of overkill is that what he looked like in Spytroops and Valor Vs Venom was what I see him as. The one that came with the Internet 6 pack years ago, this one, and the one thats in the New Cobra BAT 6 pack will just be more BATS in my eyes. More sophisticated than other BATs, but i just don't see my Overkill in the way that he looks nowadays. I do think its great that you can now take apart the limbs and also with the new 6 pack, you can even interchange all the limbs to go with the new BATS as well which is cool. Its great that you could shoot a missle or something at him, and rip his arm off and then use his arm as a weapon! Duke I can't say to much on except that he comes in a cool green camo outfit, other than that same old duke with same basic weapons. Is this the perfect set to get? No, but if you want "every figure", don't have a Duke which would be hard not to have one, or want a new Overkill to be Overkill or a new android for Overkill, than this is the set for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to review this movie, December 7, 2005
I was thinking real hard before writing this review. Honestly I've only read a few comics that have the Fantastic Four in them and besides knowing the basics, I knew very little about them. I mean I knew thier names and powers, but never really knew thier origin, which i'm told that this movie screws that up. Then again, most movies change origins all the time, take Batman for example, i think every movie had a different origin of Batman which is so simple, how can anyone elaborate so much into it and make it so different? U watched this movie and honestly, its a good movie and all, the problem i see its a rushed movie. You can tell by watching it that they develop on thier powers and how to use them but it wraps up too quick at the end. I agree with the one reviewer who says that the bridge wreck scene is longer than the actual final battle with Doom. I mean was the battle with Doom more than 5 minutes? If this movie was say, half and hour to an hour longer, it would be perfect. It would have the origins and be perfectly set up for experts of FF and for the novice who know little about them as I do. It was just rushed at the end as yes Von Doom wants to get revenge on Reed for taking the girl and losing his fortune, but it came along too quickly and the end battle was just that, way too fast. Hopefully if a sequal is made, they will have more action in it (can't be a comic book movie without action in it) since now they won't have to worry about chatacter development as it will already be there. The final fight or any fight with Doom should be longer as well. I give this movie 4 stars as it is at least 3 1/2 stars with the great developing of the characters and their powers, but my one complaint is that it was way too rushed at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best it could be for these times, December 7, 2005
Its amazing how many people rip at this movie. I remember seeing the original shows as a kid (reruns but hey I still had the whole collection of all the matchbox sized cars for them). The original Dukes of Hazzards would honestly be hard to copy in todays society. Not many movies (actually I can't think of one at the moment) that are either a remake of a movie or based on a tv show rarely closely related to its original. Everything is made for "now times" since the past 20 years have changed. Now a lot of people are complaining as this has swearing and sex in it. ok yes you see a scene of nudity but whats funny is that theres not many movies except for Disney movies which don't have some sort of swearing in it. If you don't believe me think about whats acceptable to say now that wouldn't be acceptable 20 years ago. I hear more swearing on a playground than any movie produces. Hell watch TV shows on nowadays and they swear all the time. Also sex nowadays is the #1 commodity in the United States and It would be hard to say that someone doesn't have some sex related thing that a kid can't get their hands on (yes that magazine on the coffee table has sex stuff in it with its advertising. Watch Spongebob Squarepants, Shrek, or any popular kids show and movie and if they don't have some sort of suggestive sex or swearing in it, i'd be shocked. (thats what I loved about Rugrats, every episode of them had some suggestion of sex or swearing in it and no one ever cared). Ok went way off topic but its true, remaking this movie to be like the 70's show would make it harder for todays society to watch it since it would need the action, car chases, sex (whats makes hollywood lots of money so its gotta be in almost every movie) and swearing which as i said, go to any playground and you will hear kids swear, and i'm talking the high class private schools as well. I personally think the movie was well done though it did seem to move too fast through plots but its no Braveheart so I don't think you need to develop to much into the characters as you can already guess their personality even if you've never watched the TV show. Now if you loved the TV show and got this DVD would you like it? Hard to say as you would have to keep a open mind about changing of times. Also the characteristics of some characters are different. But its still has uts humor and action of the old show, just with a new millenuim twist. Besides, you have to laugh towards the end what happens when Daisy tries to lure the cops away from the courthouse. I recommend you get the movie as a rental, see if its your thing or just that, a rental, and see for yourself if its worth buying or you hate the changes so much that you won't spend the cash on buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars the new Scrap Iron, November 23, 2005
I have such a hard time reviewing this Scrap Iron as to be honest, i'm so use to the earlier ones and just know him that way, but I came up with an idea for this guy. This guy I use as his partner/protege that is learning his trade. Just looking at this guy you can tell hes menacing and buff to boot. This guy is so detailed that even the cobra sigel he has is menacing and would definately scare you. He looks as if he has armor that could bounce bullets off of it and well, him being an anti tank guy, could just walk up point blank to a tank, it could blast him, he'd smirk, blast his gun and destroy the tank easily. Speaking of weapons, he comes with 2 nice guns. one resembles a mini missle launcher (bullets make it seem that way unless they are armor piercing bullets) and the other looks like a small laser gun. You know both are suped up to take down heavily armed vehicals with this guys specifications. As i said, a great guy to get. I won't be using him as scrap iron and if you feel the same you can just use him like i do or even get a few of these and make these his personal troops. Definately a must get if you like the mold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally more medics!, November 23, 2005
Hey even the bad guys need medics and dr mindbenders dentistry can only go so far and scapel is only one man. So now we have the medi vipers! Its kinda hard to review these guys as if you have a scapel figure then you know what this guy looks like as these guys are only a darker shade of green and have a different helmet which are the only 2 differences. He comes with 2 carrying hooks, cutting saw (watch out, i lose these easily), a pulse gun, a knife, and shoulder pads that hold the carrying hooks. Cobra has needed medics for so long as we never really had anyone that took first aid for cobra before (unless thats what troops were first taught in basic training before these guys came around). Definately get these guys as if you have as many cobras as i do, you'll need plenty of them!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Spirit ever!?, November 22, 2005
I saw Spirit was suppose to come out as the Devils Due fan choice 3 pack and couldn't wait to get it as it had Spirit, Covergirl and Hannibal in it. Then i learned that series 1 would have Spirit in it and bought the whole set right away. I received my package and boy was i not disapointed. whereas all other spirits in the past had this "souless" empty look in their eues, this one has a determined look to him. Then again why wouldn't he look so determined? Freedom has grown to a bigger eagle and his gun, well lets just saw with spirits patience and accuracy he could hit a spec of dust off any target and blow half the target away as well in one shot. The pics don't do him much justice as he looks more amazing in hand. Oh yeah, if his gun doesn't get the job done, his crocodile dundee knife sure will which fits snuggly in his sheath. All in all definately get this figure and the 3 pack when it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars NIce jet which we havn't had a decent one in ages, November 22, 2005
I first saw this jet on here and wanted it so bad, but for $35 i was skeptical so i went to my local Toys R Us and saw how big it was and kinda got even more reluctant. You will love this jet as its a real detailed jet and the likes havn't been seen since the 80's and in all this is one of the best flyer i've seen in a while (i'm talking realistic planes here). I did manage to get one of these when i went to walmarts where i found it clearance for $10 so i had to get it then. Only thing it was lacking was the 2 figures (had them anyways) and the cover for the missle launchers in top which i easily made one for it. This jet has so much firepower its incredible and would provide lots of enjoyment and if your into a morerealistic feeling, the Thunderwing is for you. Honestly if I had more space, i'd buy another one even for $35, just hard when you have so little room and you have big vehicals (not that would be a problem for some people). so go and buy this at your local toys r us or from here before they are all gone!
