Combat Heroes!

I happen to like the new Combat Heroes line, and I'll probably buy most of 'em. I need an SDCC exclusive Snake Eyes and Timber. If you can help, please leave a comment on where to buy it.

G.I.Joe movie info, B. Fraser in USA Today, S6T internet exclusive!

I didn't see this on any other sites, so that makes this an internet exclusive.

I was on vacation on Thursday, and someday left a USA Today magazine by everyone's door to their rooms. Anyhoo I picked it up when I saw an interview with Brenden Fraser. At the end there was a little piece on G.I.Joe. Here the actual piece of that interview.

Q: And, of course, I have to ask you about G.I.Joe.

A: That's a cameo, a full-on cameo. That was me begging Bob Ducsay, who produced the first two Mummys, and we were in Shanghai one night. Bob had a big grin on his face and told me Paramount had given him the green light for G.I.Joe. "Can I be in your movie, please? I'll do anything! I'll play a crazy drill sergeant." And I can't believe it-They called me! I am Rick O' Connell's great-great-grandson. He gets to decide who does or doesn't get to be in the Joes. and that's it. I had a Joe. My Joe was twisting in the wind, hanging from his parachute. (End of interview.)

One note before I leave, big sites like Hisstank report Fraser will probably be Rock n' Roll, due to the fact that in other interview he said that he'll drive a 3-wheeled motorcycle (Rock n' Roll did that on the early comic books.) and that Fraser's character's last name was O' Connell. I beg your pardon, but Rock n' Roll's last name is McConnell. I still think he'll be Rock n' Roll, but he might not. I've been looking for another Joe character with the last name "O'Connell."

Gotta go.

Why the Joes don't have fireworks this year.

Thought this would be an easy way to show off my new Lockdown. I had to pay $20 to get him.

And you thought I'd be complaining about firework costs.
