nowicki 30th birthday

This weekend is a special time indeed, because Ed, about whom you may learn so very much more at nowickipedia.com, is celebrating a milestone birthday. What better way to celebrate than with the breaking in of a new RockBand set, and the viewing of some Metalocalypse and Clerks II - and that's just the warm up! Given such festivities, the usual research and care, or even the bare minimum level of research and care that you have all grown to expect around the Preserve may be a little light, but never fear! There is so much great content that you have yet to lay eyes on, there will not be a dull moment!
 
Today then, we continue with our feature of Roadblock, one of the super hard to find GI Joe figures from the 4th wave of the 25th anniversary line.


Roadblock is serious business, and he's even on an extra large card bubble to accommodate all of his heavy artillery - very cool! As you've heard before, this wave is interesting because it consists of the single-carded re-releases of the initial Joe and Cobra 5-packs. Hasbro set out to do a small tribute to the wonderful '80s styling of this franchise, and they put together those two 2-packs which kicked off the 25th Anniversary celebration. What they found was tremendous fan and market support, so like the savvy chaps that they are, they pulled out all the stops and have unleashed the product wave you have seen and the plans we will see soon! So it is likely that these re-released wave 4 figures were not distributed well, or maybe even manufactured in great numbers, so will probably remain rare and scarce. They assure us that moving forward into 2008 production numbers will be higher, so that you may find the figures you want without constant diligence - we will see! Wave 4 here does *not* include a single carded release of the Baroness, which is a crime! So hopefully the rumors of her release in an upcoming wave have not been exaggerated.
