I might have to do this.....Minus shipping, the wave is a few buck under what it would be at retail. I'm gonna want almost all those guys.




UPDATE: Preorder placed!

Yup Man I feel the same way I would prolly spend a buttload of cash on petrol for my high performance maacheen huntin for Joes, so its the lesser of two eeevils so I placed my order too. My GF put down most of the cash for the wave(my Birfday today yeahyuuuhh) so I paid a small portion for a wave that I pretty much want a majority of, except maybe the Crimson Guard Trooper, I guess I'll see it in person and decide. However I do want a few extra data vipers and cobra regulars but I need to win the powerball first so I can afford those now but that'll be relegated to actual hunting during grocery shopping maneuvers.........

I pre ordered Snake Eyes and CC. Would have SS but he was sold out. I have a hard time seeing this wave hitting retail to hard with all the wave 1 that has been stocked and just sitting for months now.

I pre ordered mine from Dorksidee toys. I only got Kwinn, The Data Viper, Ninja Viper and the Crimson Guard. As far as wave 1, the Walamrt in Decatur Alabama actually sold though wave 1 and got in more of wave 2.5. so, I do hope there is a probability of wave 3 showing up. TRU had no Joe figures at all.

BBTS has been taking FOREVER getting stuff in stock lately........I know its probably not really their fault but its kinda frustrating seeing things on the shelves when you have it pre-ordered through them. I went ahead and pre-ordered this wave because I'm kinda sick of toy hunting....driving everywhere looking for this stuff. The extra 10 bucks or so usually takes the place of gas money for me.......but its frustrating waiting sometimes.

I also pre-ordered the Eaglehawk from them too.......hoping to get a box of Joe goodness sometime next month....but I'm honestly hoping for August...the way they have been lately.

Yeah, if I were to pass on anything in this wave it would be the CG. While not terrible, I don't think it improves on the 25th version that much. It bugs how the new one still looks way too skinny which is what I liked least about the old one.

if only they went with the Night Viper here! and packed in the ray stevenson head with that firefly then I woiuldn't be able to ignore any, aside from that scrawny SE, everytime i look at that Letal and Frag viper i got from Con i get dissapointed.

Yeah, I can't take the chance on missing the 90's Jim Lee Jean Grey at retail.....I hardly ever seen ML's in the wild anymore and I honestly don't feel like hunting for them anymore. Same thing with Joes......its super frustrating anymore.

I preordered these back in June. The estimated arrival date was 7/22. I ordered the EagleHawk with them and I've seen it at Toys R Us. I guess they're holding going to ship it all together but I'm losing patience. Has anyone heard when these will finally ship?

I pre-ordered my ultimate wave back on my birthday at the end of May. Did you Pre-order from BBTS? I've opted for the Pile Of Loot option, they gather up your orders and wait until you hit the "ship my loot" button on your account. I already had a few things waiting including the Eaglehawk, my TRU is hit & miss so I didn't want to take the chance of missing out so I bought an EH online. It says my order is in the warehouse so I imagine I'll get my stuff at the end of next week....

I split orders based on prices. I was pre-ordering Andy Dalton and AJ Green (NFL for those who don't follow sports) from BBTS. I preordered Kwinn and Ultimate CC from them because they were cheaper there. I preordered the Eaglehawk, Ultimate Snake Eyes, Ultimate Storm Shadow, and Data Viper from smalljoes.com.
