    Yeah, it must flow like Gotham City did. We picked a character, posted the picture we were going to work off of (so everyone knows if it will fit the era, etc.) and ran with it.

    I do think we need some main characters and last minute peeps can go as G.I's or Ninja's.

    I don't like the idea of having a liason & being a messanger and having to make sure everyone's choices are ok with the 'other' group, etc. Get my drift.

    Ungodly high numbers = Not fitting on the stage... Ergo, no costume contest

    Besides, this group is big enough to pull off a more than decent showing of characters on its own. It only makes sense to team up with another group if it is A. going to bring the numbers up to a respectable level, or B. the need to pool resources is essential. In both cases, I just don't see it.

    Actually, there are quite a few in the garrison that have been planning on doing Cobra costumes for awhile. But the actual "Cobra HQ" site that's similar to the 501st isn't very friendly unless you buy exclusively from their members. It's kinda lame.

    This is what I work on for about 5 minutes every month...

    I just dig that uniform. When we start our 3-gun team, we were thinking about using either Pit Viper uniforms or STARS uniforms (Resident Evil), since the other 3-gun teams wear somewhat matching uniforms (tie-dyed, flannel, real police uniforms, etc.), too. We just think it'd be cool to kick in doors and shoot things with real guns, without having the reality of things shooting back at us or trying to eat our brains. :p

    Also, from the new G.I.Joe movie, they've released a couple of costume shots...

    Snake-Eyes 1
    Snake-Eyes 2
    Scarlett

    The new uniforms look closer to military applications of the "bat suit" instead of the uniforms listed as "the least ethnically oppressive military uniforms on the planet" that G.I.Joe was notorious for.

    Well, the Lego guys didn't fit on stage, and they won. ;) Besides, could you imagine if we had us on stage, then brought in Cobras, down the aisles or something? [face_devil]

    So... I'll wait on posting anything on the MG forums, but it would be very cool if we had a Cobra force to match our own heavily GI Joe force. IF we were to invite them over, and coordinate here, then that's fine by me. It could save effort.

    Honestly, OW, it's going to be a logistical nightmare as it is. And it could EASILY degrade into a free-for-all of animosity for everyone. Why don't we just employ the philosophy you like to quote so often and keep it simple. ;)


    ETA: I'm trying to convince the twins to do Tomax & Xamot [face_devil]

    LOL, no flippers! well, at least not on stage. [face_devil]

    Besides, I already have almost everything needed for both Dusty and Chuckles. And Cutter was a Coastie. Not Navy. ;)

    I found a description of Zarana on a list of the top 11 GI Joe Villans. It was funny.


    Both the Joes and Cobra have had their share of vixens, but Zarana remains frequently overlooked. Sister of Zartan, she rides with the infamous "Dreadnoks" -- a Cobra subgroup composed of street thugs and bikers who know that the real winners in a war are the ones who fight wearing tigerprint vests and Blue Blocker sunglasses. Like her brother, Zarana was a master of disguise who donned dozens of masks to infiltrate the Joes' headquarters and other places of interest in virtually every episode of the show. Though most every mysterious female the Joes encountered turned out to be Zarana in disguise, they were adamant in their belief that they just shouldn't stop falling for it. The girl went through all that trouble to look vaguely like someone else -- why break her heart over a few kidnapped scientists or plans to devices that can blow up continents?

    On top of everything else she does, Zarana has the ability to change her skin color. No, really. The action figure illustrated this attribute, with plastic "skin" that'd turn blue when you added heat, or vice versa -- I can't really remember how it worked, but the end result made Zarana look like the victim of domestic violence. Of course, she wasn't married, and didn't really have a boyfriend other than her brother. Plus, "domestic" usually indicates "at home," and I don't think Zarana had one of those, either. She and her Dreadnok pals just sorta chilled out in wooded areas until a situation called for them to talk funny and blow stuff up. All in all, she wasn't Cobra's #1 female, but she was certainly their #2. Silver medals only suck if you're allergic to silver. Zarana is not. Yeah.

    Here is a picture of some people in Cobra costumes. If you notice there is a woman as just a trooper in this picture.

    [image=http://www.grabbag-pics.com/d/120-2/cobra_commander002.JPG]

    I am thinking I might do something like this version of Cobra Commander

    [image=http://comicsmedia.ign.com/comics/image/article/711/711411/cobra-commander-20060606085057182-000.jpg]

    Or this one

    [image=http://www.heroesforsale.biz/myspace/cobra.jpg]

    There seems to be several ways to go with this costume.

    There really aren't enough female roles in the Joe universe.

    That was kinda what I was going for with the Mystery Men thing. You could make up your own super hero. Not to mention I think Bill is the only person I've ever encountered who hasn't seen Mystery Men.

    And Bill, I had 12 Spaceballs characters. You took pictures of us yourself. Don't they teach you how to count at Metro? ;)

    I believe that is the Baroness, which Sith Chick has already claimed.
