two Wal-marts, two Targets, and a Toys R Us and I've got jack on Bruce Willis. Anyone else having this much trouble finding him?

Your just gonna have to wait. Store got a limited supply of wave 2.5 (I believe this was the wave anyway) that had Colton in it. Most store sold out of those pretty quick and restocked with wave 1 and 2. He's listed in wave 3 and repacked with waves 4 and 5. JUst give it some time or look online.

Ah, so he's going to be repackaged? That's good to know. Thanks. :)
It was simply getting frustrating because it seemed everyone else was finding him XD
Is Lady Jay gonna get repacked too because I've only seen her once but couldn't buy her at the time :/

he isn't in wave 3, that's 12 new figures, but is in a repack in wave 4, the troubling thing is, that it has been admitted that wave may not see production unless the others sell well.

Nerdragetoys.com got them in.



I just saw one at TRU the other day too, I was tempted to get him, LJ and Flint, but I already made customs for my son and told myself that I wasn't getting them.

yeah? What was such a letdown about him? I know he has a bad missile launcher and his eyes look a little funny.
I'm afraid I don't think I have anything to trade for him :/

Yup were moving backward here too. Wave 1 is back and in full force. I know that doesn't spell good news for the later waves that "collectors" (including myself) really want. I've seen Colton a few times but now he's a ghost. Its okay though I'm getting through life w/out Benchpress & ROC Kamakura so I think I'm okay. Colton's eyes maybe more crooked than a congressman but I'm sure his aim is still true.....I honestly had him in my hands but just couldn't commit. His design and overall look posed no danger to my wallet. I hope we get a better version and soon?.......I guess I'm just like you guys waiting on a the "ultimate" version waves and passing on the polished turds of wave 1....

The derpy eyes, the unpainted strap in the middle of chest, and not only does it not match the film look, i'm pretty attached to the DDP version of General Colton. It's not horrible, but if that was someone else's head other than Bruce Willis, i think it would have been much much less desired. Derpy eyes on a different head? possibly peg warmed.

I asked my son at the store if he still wanted to get one or if the custom was fine and he said he'd stick with the custom, lol.

Wow, I can't believe they're pushing wave 1 so hard. Do they really think kids want their GI Joes with molded on guns that badly? :P

Think I'll dig out the other Wolverine from that line where he's just in the white tank top (granted he only has clawed hands with that figure). If e looks good I might have to ebay an extra for a customized Die Hard Bruce Willis (maybe even add some Submariner bare feet).
