Stopped at Ross & found a non-cross eyed Jinx to replace the cross eyed one I got from the BBTS Case assortment wayyyy back....I even picked up an extra Blind RZA for the cool ninja hat look....those were $4 at another ross I spotted Cobra Commander but I left him behind, finally spotted some Retaliation Hiss Tanks, Ninja Cruisers & Ninja Awestriker.....I left those even though I wanted another Cruiser for customizing....went to the Tuesday Morning & picked up an extra Cobra Combat Ninja & Data Viper.....for $5 each left behind an Crimson Guard Trooper, Ult. Stormy & Ult. Snake Eyes....I wanted to snag up another Shadow & the Guard but had to pick and choose due to money restraints.....I hate being broke....I've been out of the hunt for a bit now.....I heard other guys were picking up Night Vipers at Ross too so keep your eyes open & if anyone wants to trade or sell outright let me know....to date I haven't found one of those damn guys yet....I just want one for my ranks at this point...good luck hunters...

Damn your lucky to have Night Vipers hanging off the shelves....you can't find those guys anywhere here.....I went to another TRU instead of the I used to work at....they had about 10 of every other figure, Scarlett, Joe C., Cyber Ninja, Rockblock, 3x Alley Vipers, a few Dark Ninjas, 1x Jinx & plenty of old StormShadows & Green Suit Dukes but not a single NV to be found....there's a few guys in the valley that are sellers here so those were prolly long gone....I did pick up another Cobra Combat Ninja & Data Viper.....very cool figs for 5 each at Tuesday Morning...maybe I can keep the CCN for a tradeski....for a NV....I'm getting close on this so well see.....if not I'm over it...I didn't see any Tomahawks left but plenty of crappy Hisstanks at the Ross's & Wave 1 Stormy at most places.....

I'm like you GD...I can't find them anywhere where I'm at, so what do I do? I come down to Florida on vacation, and I find one lone NV at my annual trip to the local TRU I hit every year. Woo-hoo!! If ever I see another one, I'll be sure to grab you one.

believe it or not, this is what was left after I picked out what I purchased, my gf's son & his girl rolled through & scooped up at least 54 more for their kids & his collection......here's what I snagged up.....I picked up the cooler army builders & some for my nephews who are in town this weekend....uncle is solid now....I really didn't have the money to purchase these so I took a hit on these but man I couldn't pass these up for $2 a piece!

heard the news on the tank that dudes were spotting these today....so I called ahead & they had like 4 of each left...I snagged up my 2 & even got a kreo ThunderWave set for 5.25....I hope everyone gets to hunt down the goodness, its great to see actual Joes at retail again....I just wish TRU didn't hold all the cards on these....my TRU's are horrible at the distribution of Joe's...

Yup I wish I had had more $ JR.....I would bought more of the ROC Vipers.....after the word got out these figs were gone in a week....I went back to snag them up after I got paid again & there was one ROC Destro left...it was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime haul.....I picked out what I could afford & what I needed for my collection & of course the real gems imop of those lines.....& I left a few of the cool guys behind for other collectors to snag up as well...I was just bummed I didn't see any Night Vipers....anewayyys I went to a TRU last night & found the 3 packs in stock....I snagged up the Destro, Leatherneck & hold me closer tiny Hawk pack.....my Destro right leg is very gummy & looks like he's practicing yoga poses......I might have to take it back or maybe dunk him in warm water & massage his legs back to health.....I dunno, they look great otherwise they were $22 w/tax

Last weekend was able to hit an TRU & scooped up an new Danger at the Docks set.....I was lucky to score an SDCC set on day of sale so I'm opening this new camo set when I get a chance....tomorrow....I also scored another Marksman set & left one sitting on the pegs.....so far the only set I haven't picked up is the Beachhead set....

I broke down and overpaid for an SDCC Danger at the Docks set, but it wasn't as much as I've seen it go for a few weeks ago. I'm looking forward to getting it, though. This is only the second time I've broken down and paid a scalper for a GI Joe. The other time being that 25th MASS Device set with Alpine.

 

I love you, Flint.

Scored the basic Danger at the Dock set this morning when I went up to Tennessee. There were 2 sets on the shelf and thought about getting both. When I picked them up I felt lighter then the other. and more parts rattling in the box and though Uh Oh. Sure enough I took it to the service desk the lady opened it up and the VAMP and the Weapons locker was missing. The Night Raft and the 2 figures were still there. Odd thing was the tape didn't looked like it was messed with.

I received my shipments...aka "the stuff"....last week but for some reason I just didn't have that collector's high that I usually get....it should've been Xmas inside my brain but finally the celebration has wore thin in my heart for Joes.....it started w/the 25th ann. line so long ago but I think I'm finally burnt on Joes....these last figs are just kina meh to me.....I like the re-imagined BAT but another SnowJob (no pun) I don't need at this time....I can always re-use him as another nameless Joe in the fight w/Arctic Cobras I guess....I ordered 2x of each of the sets so I got 2 Arctic Bats & 2 Lady J's......I'm going to take back the less fugly of the 2 Lady J sets....I haven't even opened them yet, that's how off kilter my Joe Joy is lately....maybe ordering online was a buzzkill but it was way easier than spending bookoo buxs driving to the store to face disappointment.....I do call the stores as well but after awhile calling every day is annoying, especially when some of the employees give a rats arse if I get my Joes or not....& their "direct to store pickup option" is kinda of joke when looking for the more popular items....so I'm glad to say I'm done for abit w/Joes...

See, I've been the opposite...my problem is I think my interest is perking-up a bit as of late. I can't quite bring myself to buy any of the 50th Anniversary stuff, but I've been actively seeking out the vintage figures for the first time in years. I scored a carded Action Force Roadblock, Mutt & Junkyard, and a red-back bagged Bazooka. I'm thinking about opening them and getting them resealed on repro cardbacks.

I've seen some vintage figs round here lately but they're expensive & not really early 80s stuff, its usually 90s figs & I'm not too keen on those....I'm one of the few that's actually hoping Joes take a hiatus for abit so I can save some $....
