Valor v. Venom Re-issues found at Retail

Well a wave of Valor v. Venom reissues was reported here awhile back and I haven't seen anything since or a post about on this board (I looked back 20 pages, too... nice Tiger Force thread :) ), so I just wanted to report that I found some last night at a Fred Meyer department store in Bellingham, WA. The single packs were $3.99 each on small card backs, just large enough to print the file card on back. I saw plenty of Tele-viper, Ace, and Stalker, but nobody else in the wave. Ironically, Fred Meyer was the only place I could ever find the Vv.V Single-packs 4 years ago back in their heyday. Anybody else seen these?

 

I've got to say that the "New Sculpt" guys really lose a lot of their luster next to the 25th Anv. Wave 4 Comic packs. But if these re-issues continue, I would still be tempted to buy a $4 Bombstrike or Jinx. Any army builders out there want a 'New Sculpt' Tele-viper?

did they come with accessories?

 

Yes, they did. And I distinctly remember that the Tele-viper still had his old RAH back-pack!

 

I guess I'll have to look for them now if they come with accessories. One or two of them are kinda good.

Here in Hawaii at KB Toys I found the same figures with NO accessories. Ace had no helmet and no one had any accessories. I remember because I wasn't about to pay $5.98 for just a figure. They had about 30 or so figures in a VvsV display box. It was only a month or so ago, but boy, that was a REAL shocker. Anyone in Hawaii, it was Windward Mall.

gojira, did the figures you found have the vVv cardbacks or the new 25th styled small cardbacks? and same you youskybuzz vvv cardbacks or 25th?

 

It was the old Green VvV background. Just enough for the filecard to fit.
