Eh up

I've just been looking through the old Galoob site (courtesy of R2DEE2 - thanx) and ambled into the MIB section........

I don't suppose if any of you have heard if the big HAS is intending any MIB2 MM's??

(No MIB2 MM's listed on site)

Kinda doubt it, since pretty much all MM's seem to be dead except for SW.

Were all those MIB sets made? That ship in the 4th set looks sweet. I don't remember what those aliens were called, but the ship looks like a Numiri ship beefed up. :D

Yes they were made (& I have them (so does VT & Baal, I think)).

i never bothered w/sets 1 or 2 cuz they looked too generic. wouldn't mind seeing em in person sometime though (i never have).
set 4 ship is erroneously called "baltian", even though in the movie it was called an arquillian battleship. meanwhile, set 3 ship is called arquillian :rolleyes:
also of note: mm and arquillian battleship shown in movie are of significantly different designs from one another, indicating that the mm was based on unfinalized preproduction art-

I just saw some HASBRO MIB II "MM type" sets at the military base exchange, so guess they are out there.

You're welcome on the Galoob site link:D

Cheers in advance

britcit3...sorry the military BX is only available to the military...but here's a link so you can look around. I don't know if they have the toys online, I just saw them when I went to the base a few days ago.
AFEES (http://www.aafes.com/)

I have to assume that Walmart and others will also carry this line. I'll keep an eye out for you.

Man, MIB was Galoob's worst action figure line EVER, what a freakin' shame, they could have done so much better if they hadn't gone for partial articulation and super poses.

BTW, anybody got an MM of the transformed LTD they'd let ol' JT have via selling, trading, or donation? :D

Yeah, come on peeps, help VT out by giving me your LTD micro machine! :D

(seriously though, I want this bad boy, I've got so many MM cars and trucks and a few trains that I'd LOVE to have the LTD blasting through!)

and wouldn't 'ja know it? this is the particular set with the converted ltd cruiser.

upon receiving the package from merry old england (thanx again brit cit, most appreciative that ya shilled fer me over at ebay uk), i will extract the converted ltd and include it in my package to vt, so's that he may take a gander at it, and then being the all around good guy that he is, if he'd be so kind to forward it on to sir tricks, this bit o' baggin' shall be complete!

a stamp or two'll be worth the chance to view it :) so now you're sending 3 ships this way eh? i'd ask to get a gander at the saucer in that set but i don't care enough to spend the stamp for That :p
hmm, now i gotta think of somethin to enclose when relaying to jt; maybe them fanclub catalogs?

Hoo hoo! Thank you BC3, GSJ, VT, the CIA, the ASPCA, FTD, UPS, and a BMF besides, please welcome Bob bit... hmm, I think I got on the wrong track there. :D (it's an old bit from Cheech & Chong).

Thanks so much, that's fantastic, yay yay yay yay yay yay (and fan club catalogs, yay). :D <--- the super-smiley version, not the cheesy sarcastro version I used above. And since you're all being so nice, I'd like to share the following "more than a rumor, not yet quite news": Keep it under your hats boys, but a little birdy told me that a Hasbro employee says that a certain line near and dear to some of our hearts which has recently gone figureless may likely be reversing that decision after the current 3 waves, and may be working on a way to get current missing items back into the current vehicles as well. If that's too vague, PM me.

this little thing is soooooo cool, i'm almost tempted to say that out of all the other incarnations of this lil' hopper, this little guy is the best of the lot!

thanx vt! :)
