  1. I think I see my custom DC Doomsday out of those UGG parts...
  2. The 2 targets by me in mid FL got in 1 case each of spidey and cap legends. Found 2 spideys at super target, then 1 beetle at the other store. A friend found left over Cap figs at both the day before. They were $14.99. Like everyone else, I really hope I find the rest of these...
  3. I dont necessarily agree with this. I really think GI Joe will move up to 6 inch like someone said, with the success of the star wars line. I wonder just how much new tooling would be needed since hasbro already has marvel legends and the star wars figs underway to pull parts from. Seems like they would mostly just need the accessories to go along with each character. But of course I know nothing about making figures or running a toy line. I do know that I would love to see 6in Joes, even if it had to be an online exclusive subscription service. But lets hope for a mass retail release if the
  4. I found the entire wave of the new generations, except for megs, at my tru here in FL a few days ago. Of course I had to buy them all.
  5. I am guess all the wave 1 figures have sold in your area. The Walmarts in north Alabama have either dropped the joes or have a crap load of wave 1 clogging the pegs. Could someone hook me up with the Ulimate Stormshadow. I know that's asking a lot. Actually no they havent sold. I have 5 WM's in my area, and all of them except one have put them on clearance. That one that didnt was the one that had the new wave. I guess that pure odds are that 1 out of 5 WM's would get the wave instock.
  6. Just a little heads up, this past saturday the 14th, I stumbled across the entire ultimate wave at walmart down here in Bradenton FL. It was just dumb luck that I even stopped in the walmart I did while on my way to work. They must have just put the figures out because there was one of each of the 12 figure case. But when I got to the register with them, they did not come up in their system. But they finally got that fixed and the grand total was like around $126.00. So it ends up being about the same price as BBTS with shipping. Happy hunting!
  7. I agree completely. I love these things. Now just waiting for 6in gi joe.....
  8. We have a SW sighting down here in Bradenton FL. Just fyi.... cant attach the pic I took with my phone.
  9. Last year for MP Prime, my tru said they would NOT be getting any in at all. Initially they got 2 cases that were priced at $99.99. Those sold out in a day. Then they removed the tag from the shelf and didnt recieve any for about a month. Then all of a sudden they had 10+ cases stacked on top of the shelves and the price was $119.00. Ive decided there is NO reasoning as to how tru decides which stores get shipments of figures. So I will just keep checkng and waiting till SW shows up.
  10. Same down here in Bradenton. I did get my son 2 TF prime figures for the sale price tho. Why can't they do these one day sales more often!
  11. Jeez thats cool. I cant help but wonder how crazy the secondary market is gonna get with this since that is probly where I will end up having to get it...
  12. I overheard a guy in target today ask an employee if they had anymore joes in the back b/c he was looking for a certain one. The employee went and got the partial case they had, but the customer said they didnt have the one he was looking for. Then his phone rang and he answered it saying, "did you find a Joe Colton?" Then his next statement was, "Crap, where is this freaking guy!?" I chuckeled and thought about this thread....
  13. Ive seen a good many of him down here in FL.
  14. Yep, like an online only 6in ARAH line. :-)
  15. Personally I dont think kids are buying enough joes to carry the line. I see eventially most toylines, not just joes, going to an online only membership for figs like the motu sub. I wouldnt be surprised if a 6in joe line came about this way. In fact, it may be the way to go for us minority that want 6in joes.
  16. To me it seems like all they wanted from this finale was to finally completely vilify the governor. for so long kind of walked that good bad line, but now it leaves no doubt to the characters that he is evil.
  17. Im not hateing on the concept figs at all. I think they are awesome and I would love to see a 6in joe line. I love my 3in figs also, but I think its time to up the scale to change up things a bit. Since there were no new 3in stuff to be shown at the con, I dont get why they would show these figs and say we have no plans for these. Me being a huge toy fan in general, I would be happy to add a 6in joe line to my collection. I have no real artistic talent to make my own custom figs, so the only way I will ever get some of these is if hasbro would move forward with them. Like many other collectors
  18. I love the concept figures shown, but I dont see the point in showing them. Its like Hasbro is saying "we know most collectors want these, and see how awesome we could make them, but we aren't going to develop and release any. We just want you all to wish you could have these." I think its just a matter of time before they do 6in. They are now doing star wars in 6in, and why else would hasbro show 6in joes if not to guage fan interest, even if they dont want to let the cat out of the bag yet. I remember a few years ago mattel showing a new He-man concept fig at a con, and a year or so later, M
  19. Yeah, I hate they killed who they did at the end. Considering all the character has done in the comics...
