Somehow I got the impression that the EH was going to be TRU exclusive? I guess I'll keep my good eye open for it....

the only things on sale are the vehicles (9.98-13.98) and the motorcycles.
Also, the single figures were the only thing NOT marked "NCF" in their system. So I expect the single figures will continue to be carried in Targets.
and finally, I don't think we can blame "overproduction" of the first 2 waves this time. Really, everywhere I go I see bare shelves with plenty of room for several cases. The only figures even peg warming are Roadblock and Snake Eyes

I agree. they aren't going to move and all of the stores have plenty.
I was looking at them the other day and thinking I might pick one up if they drop down to like 2 bucks because I think the Snake Eyes head is new. You could swap it onto another body

Cool, thanks. I actually decided to go with Smalljoes but I'll keep them in mind too
I think Hasbro is at a strange position. While the summer is the best time to release a GI Joe movie, it seems summer is the worst time to try to sell GI Joe toys. :/ Kind of makes sense. I'm pretty sure these days most parents are saving their extra money for back to school supplies and don't worry about toy buying until Christmas time

Found it at TRU the other day for $42.99. Definitely worth it. I heard there are only 2 per case; I got the only one there, so I suppose someone else got one too.
My Target also has Joes clearanced, but it's all mostly Wave 1 stuff.
I ordered Wave 3.5 online; it's too bad that Wave 4 has refreshes since it means all the online retailers are jacking up prices on the new figures. Oh well, maybe luck will be on our side and they make it to retail.

I am going to repaint them in more traditional colors, like Hasbro should have done in the first place

I forgot to mention they finally put the 3packs on clearance by me, so I snagged a couple of those too. Was hoping for some Mouse packs, but none were to be found around me.
