"DTC" Joes showed up at my TRU as well. They only had the BAT packs, Night Humvees and 1 case of Single packs. I picked up the lone Cobra Trooper but left the 2 SAW Vipers!


If u r in California's Central Valley u may want to go check out Modesto's TRU

I went to my TRU Thursday night...nothing. *sigh* Went back today, and BOOM, there was the Viper Lockdown set staring me in the face! WOO-HOO!! My eyes darted around for any single-carded figures, but unfortunately all I saw was the empty hook where they should be, or had been as they case may be. So I looked behind some of the other Joe toys on the lower shelves, and I caught a glimpse of a file card on a card back. Yes! I reached down to grab it, wondering who it might be, and pulled up a S.A.W. Viper! Yay! (lol)


I was just so thrilled to find this stuff at retail. I was very skeptical when I saw all of the reports and read the "rumors". Now it's confirmed. I just wish I could have scored a R.H.I.N.O. and some more Cobra Troops. But I'm perfectly happy with what I found. I was kinda straddling the fence so to speak concerning the Viper Lockdown set. It just screamed half-baked, after-thought-of-a-repaint-set to me from day one. But now that I have it in-hand, I have to say I absolutely love it. Joseph Colton comes with the DTC Barrel-Roll arms, and that upgraded the figure's construction for me, just as it did with the S.A.W. Viper. I don't know what it is about those arms. I guess I like them because they were really well designed, and anytime Hasbro uses them for a frankensteined figure, it seems to lend some respectability to the figure's construction. And I love the Interrogator figure. I agree with someone else's comments I read here somewhere around here where they said it was a prime example of the right previoulsy-used parts paired with great new ones to make the perfect frankensteined figure. Simply awesome. I just don't know how I'm gonna afford three more sets of these to round out my Vipers. (lol)


It's so exciting to find this stuff at retail, and I hope to see much more of it really soon. Good luck hunting guys!



P.S. Oh yeah, one more thing; the lady that rang me up had a problem scanning the single-carded figure and had to enter some weird code before it would ring up properly. I just found it peculiar and worth mentioning as it rang true with what others were reporting.

Unfortunately, my TRU closed last week.


But I intended to go down to El Paso to look (anyone know if the TRUs there have them?).




I live smack in the middle of both locations and nothing but S6 as of 5 pm

I found wave 3 and the Viper Lockdown set.


The singles didn't ring up either. One of the employees got a SKN and they rang up for $4.99, so it was obviously the wrong SKN, but I'm not complaining. :)


I hope they get some wave 2 in. I want lots more Range Vipers and Snow Serpents.

I went to two Toys R Us's to find the new sigmasix BAT but had no luck with that.... BUT they did have DTC. One Toys R US in Cerritos CA had BAT 6packs and HUmmers. The other in BELLFLOWER CA had a bunch of HISS and BAT 6packs.


I was actually wanting to find Viper Lockdown but they didn't have any or any singles either.

Thats the report for here in the LosAngeles area.
