? about VvV wave 6 and Walmart

Ive heard Walmart has VvV wave 6 and Hasbro is trying to get them back, but if they dont how will these be sold by Walmart?

Personally, I don't put much faith in that story. Wal Mart has no reason to hold anything back deliberately as it only hurts them to not sell merchandise they have already paid for. I have a strong feeling that we'll see some Wave 6 at various retail outlets in the not too distant future. I just doubt that Wal Mart will be one of them.

I agree... That whole "Big bad evil Walmart holding our precious joes for ransom" story just never made sense to me. If they had them why wouldn't they sell them? Makes no sense.

If everyone who had these sold them that means that not many exist and that doesnt sound right either. Especially for the wave with the fans choice pack.

You may want to check out this link about wave 6, because Steve says wave 6 will be re-released:

Let's not go there with the "EagleEye says" crap... It will only stir up a huge argument.

well seeing how walmart takes huge hits in the toy isle to beat competetors, the wave 6 story is not all that realistic, walmart does have the Holding room to hold anything they want... and it being smart?... walmart is good at being cheap.. not smart, dont count all the chickens untill they have hatched!

That is kind of wierd, wal mart was the ONLY place I saw wave 6. Then again, it was only one case, so maybe someone screwed up and put it out by mistake.

 

 

My Wal-mart was flooded with wave 6. The must of had two or three cases.

Uh, Wal Mart even said they didn't sell wave 6. They never released the bulk from their warehouses.

you're going to have to show me a quote where Wal Mart said that (not quite sure why Wal Mart would make such an annoucnement to begin with), if I am going to believe it.

 

not to mention the fact that wave 7 pretty much popped up first at Wal Mart. why would they order wave 6, not release it, then order wave 7 and yet release it? doesn't make sense. there is no motive, reason or rationale to such an action.

I surely doubt Wal-Mart "held on" to them. They were prob just limited in production. If not, WHERE ARE THEY? If the Viper can be redone for Viper Lockdown, why cant they re-manufacture Wave 6? I figure it might partly be the whole Valor Venom title deal. They will no doubt be DTC single cards if anything (not leftover 2-packs). A 6 pack featuring only the Wave 6 characters would have no theme. Also, only a couple figures would be released if at all since most were available in some form (ie. Eel, Snow Wolf, Shipwreck mold, Bazooka with Quickstrike, Frostbite with Ice Sabre). The most important obviously, would be Torch. He definitely deserves a second chance.

 

Valor Venom line did multiple repaints and versions. If the figs are re-released, I'm sure they would issue variants (def not the original). DTC singles seem to offer new characters or completely new molds or mold recipes of characters. Maybe when they finally decide to do Buzzer and hopefully Zanya and Roadpig, they will appear in a 'Nok 6packer...Wave 19, 5 years from now.

 

I bet the only chance to score the orig Wave 6 will be at the Con for a handsome price.

Well, it isn't JUST the figures. It's also the equipment. Bazooka, Torch, Snow Wolf, Frostbite and, technically Razorclaw, all came with unique equipment.

I too find it very hard to believe that Wal-Mart is holding on to a warehouse full of Wave 6 for no apparent reason. Until I see proof otherwise, I still believe it was underproduced. Regardless, that doesn't change the fact that many of the figures and vehicles in that wave are really cool and not in the hands of most collectors. Really, we've seen most of these return in some form already: Snow Wolf was the DTC Snow Serpent, Grand Slam was DTC Bazooka, Slice and Slash reshipped with Wave 7. So how about a couple 6-packs to fill in the gaps? An easy fix for Torch would be to do a Dreadnok 6-pack with Ripper, Torch (Without the stupid fire pants), frankenstein a Buzzer (Gung Ho body with a new head would work), Thrasher (Switch Gears body, new head), Zanya (Can't stand her, but I know alot of people want her. Zarana body with new head and Bombstrike arms), and Zandar (See Alyosha's Zandar). that would not only give us Torch, but Buzzer as well. They could give us a "Viper Lockdown" style 6-pack to take care of the others: "In a remote arctic research base, scientists have created a deadly new chemical weapon. Made from commonly available chemical components, this weapon would give Cobra the means to force the leaders of the free world into doing Cobra's bidding! Sensing the potential threat, a 2 man GI Joe team is sent to escort the scientists and their creation to safety. But Razorclaw and his team of Snow Wolves have already struck! Now it's a race against time to recover the deadly weapon." It would include Frostbite, Bazooka, Razor Claw (With an alternate Razor Trooper head for those of us who incesantly army-build), and 3 Snow Wolves (with cape and equipment).

 

2 simple little packs and Wave 6 is completely rereleased, plus we get some fan favorite Dreadnoks. Easy peasy :)
