Get to Walgreens

I hit up a couple walgreens and a CVS (wabash/Huntington IN) and found a lot of good stuff. I picked up a Jungle BAT, two Steel Brigade troopers, and a Blowtorch. They also had Cobra Troopers, General Hawks, and some black deco Paratroopers. The price isnt good(10 dollars +), but if youre like me and have been missing your Joe fix,or you have holes in your collection check.out your local CVS and Walgreens.

I honestly didn't even know that this Gen. Hawk figure existed until recently. Yet, after browsing the archives on YoJoe.com, I actually really like the look of this figure. I'm now on the hunt for him, but I too think he looks more like Mainframe.

I have to agree with the OP, found a Hawk at wallgreens last week, sold him to Guitar Devil. Guys on the yojoe forum are finding Jungle BATS at Wallgreens too.

 

As for the down side of them being $10, that's also true of TRU and Target. At least with POC you're paying $10 for a figure with weapons, full articualtion and a file card. As opposed to Retaliation figures that give you one weapon, cheep plastic, less articulation, no file card, and maybe a hand that's completely useless.

If it was the alt paint scheme Blowtorch i'd snag in a heart beat, I never understood including that blow torch as it was. Hasbro has said they were indeed produced, but no one believes them at this point right? Wouldn't it be a crazy shock for them to start popping up though?

yeah... that regular blowtorch was such a waste of a spot

No problem. I think these things are going quickly from what Ive seen. And though most people dont toy shop at walgreens for christmas, they will probably go faster the closer it gets to the holidays. Especially since you cant find Joes in Walmart anymore.

Made a stop at one yesterday. Good news is they had a buy one get one 50% off sign. Bad news is they only had a lone Renegades Ripcord.

 

Not all Wallgreens are POC havens yet....

 

 

at both stores I went to they only had 1 Joe figure.. weak... but they had plenty of their other toys

I have picked up a few Steel Brigades, a Shock Trooper, Techno-Viper and the one Jungle B.A.T. I have seen. Still looking for a Gen. Hawk (BADLY!). Lately at the 'greens I have seen a few Cobra Troops, Cobra Commander w/cape, an Alley Viper, Skydive, Sci-Fi, a TON of Ripcords and Blowtorches.
