  1. No doubt that is what they were doing. As you pointed out LordVenger they didn't just snap their fingers Thanos-style and suddenly we had plenty of all of these figures. It is encouraging to see that they are listening and responding to the customers legitimate complaints.
  2. To whom it may concern, I was just able to purchaser Beachhead. Don't know how, just happened. Give it a try guys what have you got to lose? I was frustrated at work and went to the website and hit the "add to cart button" and miracle of miracles it worked!. Not promising anything, but it worked for me just now. Give it a try and Good Luck guys!
  3. I was on the site at 9am sharp. It NEVER allowed me to get anything no matter what figure I tried. Gave the same error over and over again. The site is still saying Beachhead is still available. Target is a disgrace.
  4. Target gets G.I. Joe exclusives and they are nearly impossible to get. Amazon gets a G.I. Joe exclusive and its easy to get......hmmmmm Am I missing something here?
  5. It amazes me what people are willing to do for something as relatively insignificant as a trading card. I agree with JayC that this tactic of "Scarcity Marketing" is a big part of the problem, however I also agree with Mako that you have to have a screw or two loose to pull a gun on another human being over such trivial matters. The way I see it is the combination of this somewhat shady marketing technique and so many people on the edge out there makes for an explosive situation full of potential for violence. Its a truly bewildering and sad situation, especially for what should be a relatively harmless, fun hobby of collecting toys. I guess the real issue is how can we ratchet down the level of stress and tension in our society so that people aren't so willing to potentially kill for a hobby........
  6. Hasbro doesn't do this with Transformer's either. I see Transformers figures everywhere in plentiful quantities
  7. Like I've said before, Hasbro is killing this line. Whether its being done intentionally or not doesn't matter, if Hasbro continues to handle the G.I. Joe line this way it will die. I have pretty much given up on this line as far as collecting it goes. IF I find a figure I want online and the price is reasonable I will get it but I won't go out of my way to do so. When I say online I mean Amazon or BBTS or a similar reputable seller, NOT scalpers. Hasbro's strategy with this line is mystifying to me. They don't do this with Star Wars or Marvel Legends yet they continue to do so with GI Joe. Fortunately there are plenty of great figure lines out there like Star Wars Black series, McFarlane DC figures and of course Marvel Legends, who needs the aggravation that Hasbro is putting all of us through? Not me that's for sure.
  8. These figures look great. Lay Jaye's face is a bit interesting but not a deal breaker. The deal breaker is availability, or lack thereof..... I have these two on pre-order from Amazon but that's no guarantee since Amazon cancelled my Zartan order yesterday saying they couldn't ship the item in question. This after it was scheduled to arrive yesterday.
  9. Rarely have I seen a company try so hard to kill off a toy line like Hasbro is doing with the G.I. Joe Classified series. They make them next to impossible to get and ship them out to retailers that just don't give a damn about the customers. Having said that; it is only fair to point out that the figures they produce are impressive. They (Hasbro) seems to care enough to produce a good, sometimes great product. Yet why do they not seem to care if we buy them? What am I missing? Hasbro doesn't do this with their other lines. I have zero issues finding or purchasing Star Wars or Marvel Legends figures. What is the issue with the Classified line?
  10. Agreed. Like Superman and Lois but the sons...they look like major brats right now. As for being nervous about the show, Mako, unfortunately I agree about that too. It appears (fingers-crossed) that they will be allowing Superman to be Superman BUT I'm concerned about all the potential emo drama with the sons, particularly the one with the long hair (Jordan). Did you notice the scene where Lois nags Clark about missing a "therapy session" with Jordan. Telling Clark he should apologize even though he missed the session because he was saving the world...smh. It is stuff like that that concerns me. I'm really hoping that we won't be seeing a weekly theme of what a "bad father" Clark is because he is Superman and saving the world all the time. Having said all this, I did like the show, I think it shows a LOT of promise....it is Superman after all, just hoping it stays that way.....
  11. I'm very glad I was able to get a Black series Cara Dune early on. They were already quite expensive on eBay or even Amazon before all this went down. Now....who knows? The Cara Dune figure is one of my favorites. I think Hasbro did a great job capturing the likeness of the actress and just the general quality of the figure.
  12. My wish for this line is better availability! It doesn't really matter what figures they produce if they are Target exclusives and virtually impossible to get. Even the "regular" release figures are rarely seen at actual stores. I must admit this line and Hasbro's commitment to it confuse me. They appear to be all in as far as quality of the figures go. These are some of the nicest figures I have ever seen at this price point. Yet they are extremely hard to get and in some cases...."exclusives".....never to be found. I don't see these issues with Marvel Legends or the Star Wars Black series; except for the "deluxe" Mandalorian figure, again a Target "exclusive". So that is at the top of my wish list; to actually be able to find the damn figures.
  13. I have to agree. I also was first introduced to Dr. Who by watching Tom Baker and I still think he was the best at portraying the character. Now IMO Jodie Whitaker reminds me a bit of the manic way that Tom Baker portrayed the Doctor. Not saying she's as good at it, just saying her portrayal reminds me more of him than anybody else except perhaps Tennant at his best.
  14. Do we know when the 6" deluxe Mandalorian figure will be available? It really looks great.
  15. I must admit I will miss this show. It was great at first but then it slowly succumbed over the past couple of years to the political correctness of the other Berlanti shows. Melissa Benoist is a great actress (IMO) and was always wonderful in the role. She has been the best part of the show for a while now. Hopefully she will move on to bigger and better things where she can shine and show her true talent.
