  1. I found them on a pallet and the employee had to cut the case open, so it was a fresh case..
  2. He's just been on a boat too long and his hand just cramped up..
  3. Hey Gang, I just got back from my midnight run to Wal-Mart to pallet shop for Joes. I found a case of 5-packs it had 2 legions and 1 Joe. I bought one legion. But the shock of the night was 2 cases of wave 2 and they had no Cobra troopers. The case pack: Lady Jaye, Buzzer, 2x Beachhead, Serpentor, CC, SE, SS. No Wave 3 In Arkansas. Good Hunting
  4. I found some G.I. Joe and Cobra t-shirts at Steve and Barrys for 7.50 each. They are acually licensed by Hasbro and they even have xl and xxl..Good luck hunting....
  5. I found some G.I. Joe and Cobra T-shirts at Steve and Barrys for 7.50 ..They are licenesed by Hasbro and they even have xl, xxl..good luck hunting..
  6. Can you get us a copy of your receipt, so I can start checking the store status...
  7. Hey Gang, Just got Wave 2 here in Arkansas.. Both Wal-Marts in Jonesboro recieved 3 cases each. After buying for myself. I pretty much wiped them out of Troopers; 2 Beachhead, 2 Buzzers, 6 Cobra troopers, 1 Lady Jaye, 1 Suckpentor. Lot of people may give me crap about buying all the Cobra troopers, But I believe the early bird gets the worm. I get up at 5:00 in the morning to search for these Joes, so I should get the pick of the litter. Beachhead is good a great figure probalility my favorite out of this wave. Buzzer was never my favorite figure, but I do like this one, Lady Jady looks good also good poseibility, but a little disappointed that her wrist dont move. Cobra Trooper same as Cobra officer just wish they would have given them a different gun. And last but not least. Serpentor. I just was never a fan of this guy,but still a nice figure. Cant wait to get Zartan to shoot him in the face. I am so ready to get Wave 3. It seems they saved the best for last..
  8. You can find a Target employee with a scanner to scan the sku on the peg. The Target employee I found scanned it and told me they were none in the backroom and that their none on re-order, but it is odd that he has to keep that space for them through christmas. Usually if the item is not on re-order you have to use the space fir something else. apperantly toy companies buy the space from the stores to have best postion for their items.
  9. GI Joe heaven has some good ones also the seller " invasion_force " on ebay has some great ones too.
  10. I used a BBI Blackhawk helicopter..You can find them at Target for about $30..
  11. Sorry Gang The forum pics dont do this justice, so I set up a myspace for it.. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fusea...endid=238472924

  13. Hello everyone, I need some advice. I want to make a custom Blackhawk helicopter for my 25th anniversary GI Joe figures. My idea is to make it for Cobra troops. I want to paint it dark blue and put some cobra decals on it. I have a elite force blackhawk helicopter I want to do this to. Any advice for what brand of paint, burshes and ideas on how to cover the windows, so I dont get paint on them. This will be my first custom I will attempt. I can't wait to get started on it.
  14. Black Hooded Cobra Commander, we all know Hasbro well enough to know it will be either a mail-a-way or an exclusive. Repaints are cheap to make. Hasbro please listen "ALL WE WANT ARE COBRA SOLIDERS!!!!" not 500 snake-eyes or storm shadows.
  15. Whats to stop them with Star Wars legends.. What about G.I. Joe legends?? What about a whole new legends line all together.. "Hasbro Legends!!" Yea, I know I suck....
  16. My Destro holds his case fine, But me being left-handed I am prejudice against right-handed figures. I always make a few figures left-handed
  17. I have opened ten cases and only found 1 Black Timber and it was at K-Mart. 3 Target, 3 Super Wa-mart, 2 small Wal-Mart, 1 K-Mart, 1 Hasting.
  18. My approach would be different. I would hire about 100 sales rep. These sales reps would be broken up by states and zip codes. Then I would compile a questionaire of about 50 questions. These sales reps would then hit toy stores, retail stores, hobbie shops, etc. They would spend a year doing this. Then after the year is up I would take the list of questions and run them through a SPSS program to statlically break them down. Now what to do with the sales reps. I just dont want to fire them, so I would use college students from around the US. Making this a good part-time job. It would not matter if they new anything abouts toys. Matter of fact it would be better if they were impartial. You could not please everybody, but you could please the majority.
  19. I picked up Savage Dragon variant, Dredd (no tint in is lenses), Super Patriot (none varient), Ripclaw and Death from Wal-Mart in Jonesboro, Arkansas. I was lucky enough to have a friend give me the parts from Madman and Witchblade.. I built my Pitt no problems putting him together, He is nice, I do not know much about the charcters from this line. I did however, read the Dredd comics when I was a kid, but back to Pitt I like him he is big and pretty cool. I have had no problems with these figures so far. I am a big fan of keeping my reciept and taking them back to store for refund or exchange.
  20. Don't ever call a store and ask for anything..Try this trick; go the the store stand in the toy isle and find a toy you want then use your cell phone call the store. Ask for the toy dept and when you get someone on the phone ask them about the toy you have selected. Well, from this point on just wait and see...
  21. I like the BAF figures..I usually buy them all and sell the ones I dont like.
  22. My family and I swore off BK 3 years ago after never getting our order right. This was a problem with 4 different BK's. Honestly, I have never had it my way... How hard is it; whopper combo w/cheese no onion or tomato, cheeseburger kids meal no mustard, jr. whopper combo mayo only. If you could have seen how it was screwed up.Not once, but many times. I dont understand how english speaking people can screw up a meal, but the local chinese and mexican places where no one can speak english always gets your order right.
  23. That is what I am talking about a lazy employee. The old inventory excuse. It doesn't matter if it is inventory week. If they cant sell you the figures then that means they couldn't sell you anything else. They should have just shut the store down for the week of inventory. We live in the 21st century where computers keep up with store inventory and inventory counters and loss prevention work together. Wal-mart is in the business of making money. If a store manager or a distract manager every hears about a customer not being able to purchase something that is in the backroom I assure you that you will get what you want. I will say when it comes Wal-mart the managers are over worked and underpaid, but they are trained in giving customers what they want. Now for the stockers they will avoid helping a customers like the plauge. Once a empolyee admits it is in stock they have to sell it to you unless it has a street date on it...
  24. They have been showing up on ebay and the sellers are in the States. I am with you I am a huge Conan fan. I did not like the Macfarlane figures due to the lack of poseability.
