I Found WAVE 7(also known as wave3 '08)

Thats right, I walked into Wal-Mart at about 3:30am this mourning. I then bolted to the toy department and what a surprise, Wave 4.

 

Thats right peoples, I'm talking wave 4, all of it just hanging on the pegs just begging to be picked up or scalped up by a scalper. Vipers, HISS drivers, you name it they had at least 8 vipers, and about 4 HISS drivers and plus all of the other figures included in this wave and some Cobra Air Troopers. I think now that the Cobra Air Troopers are beginging to turn into peg warmers because everywere I go I always see them.

 

After I saw all those fresh new wave of GI Joe figs, I had one problem, I had no money. I mean I had some money but not enough money to buy the complete wave. But thank God Wal-mart has an ATM machine. Because If I would have left Wal-Mart and came back those figures would have been cleaned out.

 

So after I withdrew some cash I purchased 6 vipers, 3 Cobra HISS drivers, Wild Bill, Snake Eyes, Duke w/ jetpack, and Sprit.

 

Also to all of you that are hating on Version 3 Snake Eyes you guys don't know what your talking about. This figure is awesome, no better yet its AWESOME spelled w/ all capital letters. This version of Snake Eyes is the stand-out figure in this wave, in my opinion its the BEST figure in this wave. If you guys pass on this figure then you are a complete fool. But hey it will be your loss not mines.

 

So to end it all, Wave 4 is out so get out there and start searching.

 

And heres a tip. Try going to Wal-Mart between the hours of 3:00am - 6:00am because thats when Wal-Mart mainly likes to restock its inventory. If you go between those hours not only will you beat the scalpers but if you do see the GI Joe pegs empty or low don't give up yet, because I've done this before. Search around the toy section until you find a pallet full of boxes search all the boxes and if you see a box that says Hasbro 3.75'' GI Joe 25th Anni. then grab it and open it up and claim your prize. You see sometimes the person who is working in toys just hasn't got to that pallet yet. So if you go in Wal-Mart during the wee hours and you don't see any GI Joe, just try searching around the toy section for pallets and search for the Hasbro GI Joe 25th Anni. cases.

Did you leave anything for the kids and other collectors? I like to leave a least one figure of each figure for others, that way others can enjoy collecting (and for kids young and old) playing with them too. Anyway thats how I feel.

I'm not 12, I'm 30yrs old been playing w/ GI Joe every sense I was a kid, been collecting sense 1998

 

I left 2 vipers, 1 HISS driver and the rest of the figs included in the wave. But I bet you that if I go back to that Wal-Mart those figs are probably gone by now.

 

You see I work the 3rd shift hours Sunday - Thrusday 11:00pm - 7:00am. I went home early that night, Ileft work around 3:00am. So I decided to pay a visit to Wal-Mart and what a surprise. Wave 3 or Wave 8.

Killjoys we may be, but how much does it suck seeing the headline, and reading the first few lines by an annoying braggart... only to realize he's found nothing of interest...

 

That's a pretty big kill joy right there... for anyone thinking *newer* toys were out.

Yeah, I had the same luck today too. I went in Wally-World before work @ 6:30 am and got 2 Vipers, the only HISS driver they had and one of each Joe. Kinda bummed about Major Bludd being pushed back. I saw him on the back of the card an frantically searched the pegs before I realized he wouldn't be there. But at least I can use Duke's jet pack and make Grand-Slam a little more complete.

When I read the title I thought he was talking about the Duke, Destro, Gung Ho Etc, wave 4. You know, the one that everyone was worried about not finding and then was found in abundance with just a bit of waiting?

 

Nice find.

If you found them today that means I'll find them in about two months here in Chicago. We get them right when they come out but the toy mafia hordes them up before most of the rest of us can get to them. If one hits the shelves on time, you know someones getting wacked!

I couldn't agree more.My area usually get these in abount a month after everyone else.We won't see wave 7 until mid June with the way our stores get figures in.To the one who found wave 7 good going,there are some of us who would like to at least see these in person ourselves.Just some food for thought.

I still haven't even seen wave 6. :(

 

I have a case of wave 6 and a case of wave 7 preordered from bbts.com, and it says they arrive in April, but it's already May. :(

Here's a handy dandy conversion chart for what W3-08 or W7 is in the grand scheme of things.

Oh, and feel free to join and look around. ;)

 

 

Nice site! I have two questions though, which may have already been resolved, but if my eyes didn't see it, it didn't happen.

 

1. The Trakker thing. And this is open to anyone. Is there a definitive answer to the whole MASK deal? Or should I pick up that sweet 2006 1:18 Camaro concept diecast that has been sitting on the shelves awhile? (I would think that Matt, having had his base destroyed and married a fat chick who turned out to be Miles Mayhem on Robot Chicken, would keep a low profile for a bit.

 

2. Being out of the comic loop (Marvel and hence Devil's Due) for years now, Who the F is Glenda? (Only one I know flys over rainbows and helps out degenerate little girls and their puppies)
