  1. Most Wal-Marts will not be getting the 25th figures or the AM figures. The best way to find out is to get a UPC and find a store manger or just e-mail Wal-Mart through Walmart.com. I did the e-mail thing and the store manger called me within 2 days from the local Wal-Mart. My local Wal-Mart were not getting them, but he helped me locate a case from another Wal-Mart within 250 miles that had them. They were sent to my local Wal-mart, but I had to pre-purchase the whole case. Its not a bad thing if your going to buy a case. I have missed so many figures over the last 2 years after moving to a small town. I have learned how to be more efficent at getting figures. I understand the online dealers have to make money, but I live by a budget and perfer to buy where I can get it cheaper an of course, I perfer to buy local..
  2. Anyone seen the new Conan figures??? I want these ssoooo bad.....
  3. I understand everyones pain. I have 3 Wal-Marts I hit on a regular basis. One Wal-mart changes employees in the toy dept more than I change my underwear. Most of the employees at the other Wal-mart just stand there at look at me like I am retarted. The third has a nice older lady that has worked the toys for over 5 years. She always knows who is looking for what. I am past the point of being shy. When it comes to looking for toys. I am a 36 year old man weighting 270lbs and can benchpress a small car. When the toy people see me coming they hide. I give them the insane look that I am hungry and looking for food. I WANT TOY!!!! I am just sick of Wal-Mart and Target employees being lazy and not caring. Hell, I have to learn about the items I sell. Why cant the retail employee do the same. Instead of talking bout why Bill is dating Jill give'em a Toyfare to read at least keep'em some what updated. I work hard for my money and I want to buy new toys and I perfer to buy them local..
  4. Dear Hasbro, The Spider-man 3 figured just plain sucked. I bet Spidey was ticked also. If you take something that is 6 inches and shrink it to 5 inches who wouldn't be ticked-off.
  5. I founds these guys at Wal-Mart in Jonesboro, Arkansas at our small Wal-Mart. I have been looking for the 25th anniversary Joes (still no luck). I saw these guys and wondered what the stoy was. Wal-Mart had about 30 on the shelf. Might go by there tonite and pick up one. Good Hunting
  6. Ok Gang, This is what I have found out. Wal-Mart and Target are doing their Christmas re-sets this week. They should have the figures in stock. They maybe in their backroom, but do I like I did take a copy of the UPC. go to your selected victim ( Wal-Mart or Target Employee) have them check the stock using the UPC you brought with you of the item you wish to purchase. If they have a case it will be in the backroom waiting to set the new mods. And the unfortuate employee will tell you that. Then tell them to go get it. At this point you are a unsatified customer and you demand satisfaction by means of G.I. Joe figures. They will tell you they cant find it or it is buried behind stuff or they cant get it, cause the people who re-set the shelves are the only ones who can touch it. Be persistant and you shall get your Joes. You could also read Sun-Tzu Art oF War if you need any extra help. Good Luck!!!!
  7. Yes, I remeber my first joe it was short-fuse. I was at magic-mart when I saw the first wave. I do remeber how I had to debate myself in to getting Breaker or Short-fuse. Short-fuse won over because breaker did not have a gun. But I do remeber searching endless for Rock-n-Roll. Today I am not reallly different. I am hitting stores looking for the news Joes. The employees of these retails stores look me like I am crazy. I am a 36 year-old man, well dressed, full beard with a list of UPC codes. I have finally found my first 3 Hooded Cobra Commander, Flint and a Cobra Officer. I came home shut my bedroom door. My wife and kid think I have lost my dang marbles. I opened them and for once I went back in time. I posed these figures. put the guns in their hands and said "Cool!!" They are not the same figures I had as a kid, but they are a new generation of figures. I love these Joes like I loved the old Joes. I dont even have any Joes left from when I was a kid. But the thing I love the most is the thrill fo the hunt. There is nothing like turning the corner of the toy aisle and seeing these little guys on the shelf.
  8. Ok, a themed wave. Well, I love a super-villian, but what are super-villians without hechmen. We need hechmen.. Black Ninja- that baddie could work for about any one. and an assortment of weapons. Also imagine the color varations you could make these guys. Thug- Just a big brute that needs bruised.. Hasbro could make tons of money with different variant colors of these guys. Ski-masked businessman- suit, ski-mask and a machine gun. theres hours of fun. Biker-dude-What needs to be said here. These are just a few ideas. I just think it is about time to see some cannon-fodder and I know the Hydra guy is coming out. We just many more baddies fer our heroes to beat up. thats my 2 cents worth.
