  1. Yup. I am in the same boat... the Joe Collecting started LATE last summer, and since then I have almost all of the RAH figs from 82-92.....Many nights on the bay and lots of cash later.......then I found the 2th line....and was like, I need to make at lease one shelf for these guys.... .as I love the RAH and I only had them up for a few months....but I to love the new 25th line and YES...I boxed up the RAH stuff and display only 25th...and some CARS toys as well.....but for now I will have to wait to reshelv the older Joes...

    I Give Up !!!

    Jinx I feel you bro...I am here in Santa Monica, and hit alot of the stores you are at too...I even go to Simi Valley (My parents are out there) and have the going before work thing, especially now with Wave 5.....but this last week I threw in the towl with SPECIAL MISSIONS to the Targets and TRU and Walmart all the way in CRENSHAW, and resoreted to ebay....but if you really look and buy from the same buyer, you save on Shipping....you only end up paying a few more bucks per fig, and save on gas, being late, and STRESSING over Joes.....now....may Wave 2 Comic Packs are coming in the mail, and I will be caught up and I am not hunting like crazy anymore....Also, try and pre order, that also helps as that garauntees your items and they are about the same price you would pay as you would orderd on tru.com or somthing....... Keep your head up and go only when you can...look on ebay there are always good deals..but you have to DIG and always search....
  3. Congrats on the new Joe Member.....I will wish you a good night in about three months of no sleep....but its well worth it... Congrats again
  4. Well good news everyone, I stopped by Target again, today, just in hopes of something, and guess what they had them in... I got my SE vs SS Comic Pack.... But even though I fell better, I am still little ticked that I had to go through all that... I will never reley on TRU.com again... I may use there service again, but I highly doubt it....Tanks for all the repleys guys and Gals.... Good to have some one to rant too...and understands....
  5. I ordered on the 30th... got email on the 1st that my items were located, got an email today say order was cancelled. I just came back from hunting and of course nothing.. I found 1 cc and Duke Comic pack that looked like it had been opened for the DOC exclusive..... Thanks a lot TRU....
  6. Just as reported by some other posters here, TRU.com cancelled my order of the Comic Packs... TRU had no issus taking my paypal cash, and then after I saw all the comic packs at Target on the 31st, and passed as I thought my order was locked, and now I have none, thanks for nothing TRU..... Now I have to go re-hunt for this... To make it worse I had stoppped by the Target that had them, and now NOTHING... I am sooo pissed...
  7. Decided to go my local TRU, with NO hopes at all, about finding Joes, but the HUNT said just go anyway you have the time... half way to TRU... I said forget and stoped at the Target my wife was at yesterday with nothing to report, and said well they said the reset would happen on the 30th, why not.... I walk in, expecting nothing, more so than I ever had before, I just been demoralized lately, and I walk in to the action Figure asle and I imiediatly notice the new TF Legends 2 packs, 1 of each...and was like ok I guess this was not for nothing...so I take a few steps to the Joe section and OMG I see Pegs full offffff Wave 3 joes, but still a good site to see.... then I saw the Comic Packs...all of them, and I was sooooo excited I jumped for Joy.... NO EBAY prices.....I got them all excpet SE and SS, as I ordered them from TRU last night, but with the reports of cancelled orders, I may have missed out.... and on top of that they arebeing sent poorly getting crushed... anyways thought I would Confim that my Target did have a reset, while another still had not not far away. So not all follow the same date... but now I know which one to go to... Now its off to get my DOC...
  8. Thanks for the update, they finally had Scarlett and Hawk two packs, so orderd my set along with the Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.... Yaahhh lets go DOC....
  9. What about Bazooka or Quick Kick, Alpine, Grunt, Hit and Run, recondo , Dial Tone, Scrap Iron, those are some classix #US1#
  10. Been out in Southern Cali and no signs of Wave 4 or 5... I found a fresh case of Wave 2 Assortment, and myself a Cobra Trooper and Ninga and left the rest, about 8 or 9 joes... went back tonight nithing but Buzzer and cobra Commander....
  11. As broke as I am I had to get them for such a good deal... They even did site to store, so there was NO shipping charges... only tax, which was about 3 bucks here in Cali.... Total was 32 and some change for 2 of them.... Thats prett good, and if I can use the CC and SS for trades in the future it was well worth 2 Drivers, 2 Troopers, and 2 Air Troopers...
  12. Hi guys I am getting rid of some Joe Stuff. I started the Bid at .99 cents including the Black Timber...and Shipping is reasonable... Snake Eyes with black Timber http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...E:IT&ih=003 and a list of all the other Joe Stuff I have. http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZmr0072003 Peter
  13. Seem to always find SS v2 and CC, and tons of 5 packs....usually Joes.....
  14. Passing on the Troopers....although it will be hard as I am a completest.....but I will definitly get a few Ninja Packs....
  15. Finally got everything I wanted.. I found at a local mall of all places, I paid a bit more, but got everything and still left an antire set of wave 2 minus the trooper for others.... but that was 2 daya ago and could not post, but tonight I hit the mother load of Cobra Legions 5 packs.... I have 2 for me and there are 5 left at the Culver City Target... Happy Hunting..
  16. Dprime thanks for the update.....as for Hawk.. I was wrong..I meant Cobra Raptor.... His Raptor Helmet....sorry about the confusion.... Well I am glad to hear that I dont have a bunch of Bunk Joes.. cuz I really liked them....... well I guess the hunting will continue to complete my collection... Its a long way... I will post pics as soon as I can.
  17. NahI dont care for the packaging, as I want to make sure that My joes are just as good as the American ones... I have noticed a few paint varaitons on the Two... Very minor, but it there.. the most obvious one I noted was with Hawk...Canadain Hawk Hood was rubbery, as the Us one was more plasticish.. .if that makes sense...thanks for the info though... now I fell better that I may have a some rare Canadian Stuff... If any one else has input please feel free to post, I am sure other may want to know too
  18. Hi guys, Since the Hunt for the 25th Anniversery stuff, my brother in law gave me a bout 30 joes, and may vehicals from the 1980s line... I FELL IN LOVE, and 3months later, I have many joes.... Here is the deal, I went on Ebay and got my joes, and many were from Canada... I thought it was the same until I saw some cards from the toys from Canada, and they all had Quebec writing on it (as well as english)... and then realized that there were slight differnces in the american Joes.... Now I am worried that i have worthless Canadian Joes and not the REal American Made Joes... I am hoping I am wrong but I can not seem to find any info on the differnces, and want to know If my collection is made up of fake joes.. .Please help a starter Collector on what seems to be a BIG ROOKIE mistake.... Pete

    GREEDY M'er F'er

    I am an army builder myself, but if I had someone who was a collector ask for a set... There is no way I could say no.... I know how it feels when you finally get your hands on something you have bee hunting for.... In my eyes, I know I will find another at some point, and save myself 24.99
  21. Well My wife was able to get me wave 3 at retail....The cards were beat up though....Not that I care, just glad to even have my hands on them.....But here is the story...My Wife and I have been hunting for these guys for weeks now... last luck we had was back in August, when we found all of wave one.....since then BONE dry other than the 5 packs...So she finally befriended an employee, and she save a case for my wife....when she got there, the lady told her some guy came in bought about 4 cases (about 30 joes) and was goinf for my wifes stash as well, thank the TOY GODS, the lady refused, and said the last 6 were on hold for my wife.... CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS 30 Joes....thats way more than enough for one collector.......I think it was a scalper.....So close....I so want my Cobra Troopers.....PLEASE HASBRO>>>>start making cases 24 per like the old days....
  22. Love everything about it so far except for the NINJAS... We need to focus on DUKE, FLINT, Scarlett, Lady Jay, Roadblack...cameos of Shipwreck, Dusty, Frostbite and the Snow team......but not all on SS SE....... If Hasbro does it right, they can have many movies with a good story line with soooo many characters to focus on...... HEll I am still waiting to see Gambit in an X-men movie, but thats another story.......
  23. Good for you...I am slowly and its costing me to build up the 5 pack Trooper....I have 2 with extra set of the Cobra 5 pack (minus the trooper).....
