A Nice Suprise At Wal-Mart


Recommended Posts

My brother, who works at Wal-Mart, came home this morning and told me there was a single carded Cobra Officer and two Cobra Troopers (Viper Glider Pilots). So far that Wal-Mart has only gotten one case of the IG Destro wave. We have no idea where those three figures came from. My brother has been there every day and no more cases ever came in.


I figure someone had those three and did not want them and returned them to Wal-Mart. That's the only place they could have came from. I still needed an Officer so I got really lucky being able to get him.


Thank you to whovever did not want those.


It's not too often someone returns troop builders like that.

I found those as well. Walked into one of the Wal-Marts here and found 4 filled rows of GI Joe. I counted about 13 or 14 cobra troopers and 7 officers. I grabbed 6 troopers and 1 officer. When I went back the next day the rest were cleared out. Unfortunately, it looks like I missed the wave 3 comic packs there. I thought maybe they hadn't put them out until I went home and saw about 8 crimson twins on ebay from a seller a few miles away. Guess I know what happened to those comic packs.

I am still missing the IG Destro and W1-08 SE too. Word is that Meijers in the midwest are stocking these finally. I happened across a battle damage SS and SE comic pack yesterday at a Wally during my search. Missed the rest though.

sounds like the wave 2/3 revision case, which comes with 2 troopers and 1 officer. I know you said they didn't get any cases in, but I think they probably did.

I bet that is what it was. My bro can't be there all the time so a case could have slipped past him. It is still weird that those three were still there. Usually troops sell out first.


There has been a Flash sitting there all alone since his wave came in, nobody wants him.
