    yes, except the new one is larger, has better paint apps, more sculpted details and it has a flight stand. Also the hatch on the side of the raider that opens up and you can see some of the stuff inside...

    I bet she'll be able to find minuscule differences in two similar things that she likes...

    Well, next time she asks you if you like her new hair cut just say "looks just like your last one. I can't tell the difference." And then see how she likes it.

    My girl asked me what the difference was between the two He-Man and Skeletor figures (the regular Matty ones and the TRU ones). When I pointed to the paint differences, she asked, "Why are these worth having? They practically look the same."

    Then she asked the same about the TRU Zodac in comparison to his original release.

    Honestly, in this case, she makes sense.

    Your wife, however, does not make sense in this case.

    This is kind of like the way women have like 40 pairs of shoes and 10 purses. To us, a lot of them look virtually the same, but to a woman, they are all very unique and this pair goes with that outfit, etc, etc...

    If a woman is so petty that she's busting my chops about a $40-$60/ monthly hobby, I'd never have married her to begin with.

    If she's really irritated by that, there are FAR more concerning factors at work!

    I've dated exactly ONE woman that had a problem with my collecting. Turns out is was a control thing...glad I got out!

    If she doesn't accept me for me, bodybuilding-toy-collecting-comic-book-reading dude with a great job that works his tail off, well...there are over 3 billion women on the planet. I'll move on to the next one!

    My wife just leaves it alone. She knows what it means to me and the passion involved w/ it. Se doesn't ask 20 questions or complain about it. Even if she doesn't understand it she SUPPORTS it. I'm very grateful for that.

    My wife is really cool about it-she knows it means a lot to me and she actually opens every figure herself...like John Hammond with the eggs. We've been behind lately with the holiday season and Baby on the way, though. BP She-Ra is still trapped!

    Totally agree! It's okay that women aren't into our hobbies, but they should accept it and at least leave us alone with it.

    Same here. I know my wife doesn't get it...at all...but she has not made one derogatory comment or ever questioned the money I've spent. I've found that as long as you have your priorities straight and you're taking care of business on the home front, most women are pretty accepting of your eccentricites.

    In all fairness to He-Bro though, I think he was just making a joke about how his wife doesn't appreciate the difference between between the two Wind Raiders and wasn't trying to insinuate that she's difficult or unsupportive.

    Never had a problem with girls taking a shot at my figure collections. Granted I am not married and never will be but I have been in a few somewhat long relationships and none of them had a problem with it. I am currently single and I bring new girls over all the time and when they see I have two entire rooms dedicated to figure displays they get freaked out and think it is cool that I have such a passion for it. The only girls that have a problem with it are my friends girlfriends because they don't want me to corrupt my friends into doing the same thing.

    That is a smart answer....but actually saying it would NOT be smart!
