A big Thankyou to the guys who attended the event, for taking time out & posting all this great stuff for all of us to enjoy too :-D

Dispite the controversy over the :qforce: set, I may well stick my hand in my pocket & invest in one...as I like the figures :oops:

Gotta say them new Joe figures look outstanding, especially the one of Low Light...that case for the rifle is a neat addition.
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!

fantastic - thanks for sharing these aire and for everyone else who took the time and effort.

just been thinking and while its a pity that there will be no more o-ring its kind of nice they "signed off" with this set esp when the o-ring was in a way the end of the shadows...

that was my thinking, we can always say the RED SHADOWS was the Last O ring set!

Now I don't know what to say... I'd like to see the E. Honda mold recycled as the Soft Master, but on the other hand, it isn't as poetic as the :enemy: set being the last O ring figures released.

I always wondered why Red Shads were such suicidal loonies so they are chemically altered ..strikes me as odd that the Black Major would even consider working with Cobra they are sworn enemies ..guess time heals lol..the history is interesting too seeing as the Shadows emerged after World War Two gives me allot to work with if I was to do a Cold War retcon comic strip (but that will be some years down the line)

i like the fact that the Dolphin card mentions the Sea Lion and the Stingray. and states that the kayaks are 'silent attack mkIIs'

it's also interesting to me to note that apparently the SAF is NOT an international outfit, but a UK outfit with an multi-national roster.

I liked the way Dolphin's file card read too. Lots of info about the new story on this one and the other cards too. especially that Lifeline isn't :zforce: but a Joe attached to :zforce: It's all piecing together, well in my mind anyway!
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

Sad the 0-ring Joes are at a end (for now), but there are many vintage ones to collect. I also would love to see a Hydro Viper in green and red like Kraken. I remember buying the original Hydro Viper at Ames or Big Weels. :deepsea:
