Well the fears of many myself including that wave 3 and 4 will be pretty much impossible to find at retail look to be coming true. Target has officially put the ROC stuff on clearance. $7 figs and $13 vehicles. Did not loot at the other prices. WM also has removed them from their upcoming set (at least in smaller stores that had them) as I saw the reset sheet. Companies will never learn not to over produce early stuff and honestly there should not have been this long of a wait between wave 2 and 3. Hopefully we all get what we want somehow from these waves. I want the Ultimate remakes and Night Viper. Those are a must. At least I have 2 of those locked up on pre order at BBTS.

Really want some more 3packs but they're all still reg price here.
Wave 3&4 carded pics are popping up, so hopefully they all make it out, lol.

Also, the Eaglehawk is in the system at Target and someone on hisstank in Michigan (not me of course)found one at TRU. I got my Eaglehawk from Dorkside toys and let me tell you if any store refuses to sell this thing they are a bunch of idiots. The DCPI for the Eaglehawk is 087-06-1478. it sales for 39.99.

Damn Drav...your too quick....I was at a Doc's apt this morning so on the way back to work I stopped at a Walmart & Target. The norm round here is nothing but Wave 1 & 1.5 pegwarmers!!!...I have not seen Joe Colton since April & I have yet to see a Lady J? All I see is Rockblocks, SE, SS & Zartans. Walmart had reg. prices on what it had(if you can call that stocked) still $10 a piece on figs. Plenty of Stock on those Joes/Motorcycle thingies (brilliant toy Hasbro Execs?) Terget is starting to clearance items here, the one I went to had a gang of Hisstanks and Ninja Suvs, I snagged up an Ninja Suv for $10!! I bought one earlier this month w/a leftover giftcard butt the figs were still regular price. I shake my head at this whole push back debacle, its only my lil opinion but the movie wasn't good and the wait we had (for toys & movie) sucked even more and now there's little word on the next waves. I'm glad I ordered online ahead of time for the ultimate waves, I even ordered my EagleHawk online as well, hunting online isn't fun but at least somewhat more dependable......its all a big joke...

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....

That's why I preordered the 3rd wave online, I just can't trust retail to get these things. I should be set for wave 3. I'm writing off wave 4.

I doubt Target will actually get the Eaglehawk with them clearancing Joe out. Not good hopes my fellow Joe friends. Looks like online and TRU only soon. Which means TRU will charge like $15 like they always up stuff when they know its collector oriented.

I have been to 5 different Targets this week, and none of them had the singles on clearance, or the 3-packs.

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

Not around here. Every store is packed with wave 1. And The singles are on clearance. My local store has them tagged clearance and I went to another one and they did not have them tagged but they scanned $7 too.

I hate being all doom-n-gloom but I hope everyone is preordering wave 3. I have a feeling it's the last GI Joe wave we'll get for quite a while. If we don't see new stuff at SDCC, get ready for another "hiatus". Until GI Joe 3 that is...

Sadly I agree. Maybe we will get lucky and get some BBTS sets again. I still need to buy the last ones though @loll@

If you really want those lame motorcycles, with a little patience, I have a feeling you'll get a shot at all for them for about $1 each.

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

I knew this was going to happen ._. Perhaps next time Hasbro should consider making a wave like this wave 1
Where can I preoder wave 3?

Well if the eaglehawk isn't coming out then explain this. It's not Target but TRU.

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.

This is probably not the doom and gloom scenario that people are hinting at here. I walked down the toy aisle today, half the stuff is being clearanced out. Not just GI Joe. Reset's coming soon, probably.

I picked up some of the teal blue Ninja Vamp jeeps on clearance for 9.98 each. These are possibly the ugliest color possible and they even come with incredibly stupid stickers.

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

I got two Clam... my son wanted a green one for Autobot Hound, lol.. and I got another one to paint in a desert tan to match the Eaglehawk, I want to display it lowering the vamp, like it's dropping it off. Here's my green one so far. I've added a little detail since taking the pics, but it looks awesome in camo green.

I also want to make something to cover the top space. I don't like that huge gap there.




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.

What are the 3 packs going for on clearance? I have been holding off on the Mouse one. BTW, solid repainting right there!
