I went out again after applying for jerbs, being un-employed suxx, butt I digress, I've spotted the Vamp and Dragon in the wild, at 3 of the 5 WM's I went to, nothing at Target just 12" and Skystrikers. Buttt the pegs are ready and foaming at the bit to be filled, some of the WM's still have Duke and Arctic D on the pegs? Sooo Nada at TRU either just empty pegs waiting for new arrivals, plenty of Skys's and Mech's still there but mums the word from the employee's I swear you'd think they were protecting national secrets. I did stop by a random Box Store Closeout shop, I wasn't expecting to find much they had the DCU Superman VS Parasite set for $8, it was cool but I have my monetary priorities which for now are Joezles and not food haha, I dug and dug & found a POC Dusty wayyy in the back of one shelf for $5! Hells yeah and a random 6" Gundam w/various Japanese writing all over it for 5 bux as well, it was just too cool to pass up so I hadda get it. Oh and I stopped by a local comic shop, they had the classic 80s Thundercats lineup for $15 a piece Lion-el ( that juss how I spells it) came w/Snarf I almost bought it but joes1st they had Mum-ra and the rest.......thats that for now.......good luck hunters seasons back on @peace@

Went to Ross and Marshall's. Picked these up from Marshall's:

I normally pass but they were marked down to $5-$7. At Ross they still have the Polar Sharc, Lava Pod and Rockslide for $8.99. Maybe I'll get them if they ever drop

Finally the long national nightmare is over, well just a minor night terror. I found 30th Joes at retail, granted they weren't in the system and they almost didn't sell em'. It drives cashiers crazy when they can't ring up, its almost like they don't believe me when I tell them I found it in your toy section. I quote the right price as well, the manager walks up & its no big deal sometimes they even quote the wrong price which I let them know they're 6.97 (damn my honesty it only works at the wrong times). Butt thank god the drought is over now we need to get the rest of the stores on board, I 'm sooooo tired of seeing ADestro on the pegs at Target I'm tempted to buy all of them and form a nation wide Arctic Destro burning, preaching to the masses, the evils of environmentally themed figures who sport guns bigger than themselves, didn't we learn from the 90s Xmen characters shame on the design team, AD makes baby Jesus cry.......I picked up a few new troops, love the Steel Brigade and such, Hazard Vips are money, love the Iron Grenadiers as well (I had no interest in them b4 but w/the new design I gotta have em 2) hope to see more soon.....The season is back, thank the ToY GoDs good luck hunters and madmen.....

Over the labor day weekend my GF's washer moved on to sunnier pasture's, after dis-assembling her washer and testing the the power output, its kaput, the timer on those things are super spensive so's I tole her to love it & let go.....after looking for an affordable replacement we found one wayyyyyyyy down south to a place that's rarely visited by modern man. Sooo we hired some camels & handlers, bought some provisions from QT those bbq chicken sticks are just soo wrong for so many reasons but the Ice Tea was Maahhvelous. After picking up her new washer I convinced her it was in the peoples best interest to go to Wallyworld & I faked having to go pee as well. She loves the clearance clarence aisle as much as I do so it dint take mucho......I pushed over a nice couple and their baby, couple of gramas who were goin to slow in mah fast lane lifestyle, I rounded the corner annddd they still had the pegs full of POC Joes, whaaattt? They had Shock troopers from here to the Salt River Canals, I smiled big and snagged up the one lone Alley Viper that finished my 2 man squad I wanted ( I swear when AV's came out I couldn't find em anywhere & as time grew they grew on me), they also had lotsa Hectic destro's (I winced & screamed inside the terrorists have won) strange but no BAG Dukes, losta Jungle Vips & Skydives a plenty. Then we ventured back towards civilization, (I googled maps) I knew there was one more Wahhmart on the way home so we stopped just one lone 30th ann Stalker hanging there staring at me in confusion with his cross eyes & drab grays.......and nada at the Terrget down the road......Good luck Hunters and Madmen......I'm still stalkin Abernathy by the way

Sorry I feel like this is my venting ( someone else needs to end my rule of terror) place, aneeeways, I went to the local grocery store last night for kicks. They're running a special at Fry's grocery buy 2 get one free(for Joes, MU, Star wars, Power rangers, TFs & DCUC) & prices vary for each line. I picked up a 30th ann Cobra reg(7.99), Stalker (he finally grew on me) & a POC jungle Bat? what a motley crew. The sale is on just for the weekend, I went to a few other frys for kicks & giggles. Should never stare into the sun mah friends, the ones I went to still had Arctic D's & ROC Destroy and Baroness on the pegs, now I have a fever and the runs.....Soo I paid 18 bux and some change for the 3 figs, so that equals out to 5$ & some change per fig, not bad and I even scored Stalker who I was on the fence about......And another heads up for you madmen, I wandered into the Tuesday morning right next to the Frys &........they had POC Wolfhounds for 12.99!! They also had Iron mans 4"movie line for 5.99( just saw 3) I snagged up a Wolfhound.......& that killed my pocketbook for the month (sad times) but it was a good hunt.....good luck you princes and princess's of the toy aisle...@purpbananna#

Hey Wolverine mind asking how much you paid?

 

I might have to go that rout and grade mine along with my yellow Stalker, Gold and silver PDD, both SDCC CCs and Slaughters.

I got lucky as hell a couple of weeks ago at the Sanford Flea-World. A guy there had loose ARAH mold Joes for $2 a piece, and found a couple of real gems: a mint Aero-Viper WITH the helmet, and a frikking near-mint NIGHT FORCE SHOCKWAVE!

 

No accs for the Shockwave except the machine gun, but I could care less!

 

Stoked to finally have one after 15 years!

So over the weekend I went hunting...at the Ross I snagged up a TRU Exclusive Spirit & Quick Kick! I was out prowling for the Resolute 7 packs keeping out hope like the time daddy went out for cigarettes and never came home.....not a single 7 pack to be had anywheres, heck there were barely even any toys left after Xmas. They did have Capt America vehicles(jet and buggy buttt they were red white and blue perfect target practice for Cobra) if your into that sort of thing. The POC Billy ahem Spirit and & QK were 4 bux apeice (not bad) and as there were 10 in all I bought my 2 and left the rest for other hunters and madmen, and maybe for the scalpers w/their tight shoes and hearts that are two sizes to small, anewayyys keep watching the blandly dressed shelves.......good luck
