  1. This is the reason I never pre-order. Only will buy in stock items.

     

    That's correct. I'll only order in-stock as well. Sometimes I really wonder if Hasbro send allotments to the etailers of how much they should get or if these etailers just open up pre-orders to try and get as many as they can before getting a confirmation from the Big H on how many they can order.

  2. Now that we're just about a week away, let's get a thread going about who will be attending down in Big-D next week.

     

    I'll be driving down mid-next week to visit family and then attending the con on saturday only for part of the day and then spending the rest at IKEA.

     

    Who else from ADC/TNI will be going for sure??

  3. They are hard to find because they fly off the shelves as soon as they hit. The two WM and Target near me get a few cases a week between them and they usually are gone withing a day or two.

    I'd agree with this. My Wal-Mart has been getting semi-regular cases and they do fly off the shelves. They got 5 cases last week and within 48 hours 90% were already gone. AFAIK, there is only 1 regular scalper around here and he seems to leave Joe alone. Interest is pretty high around here, so I can only assume that 'fans' are snapping these up pretty quickly.

  4. Some people actually like a number of characters introduced in the DDP run, and like they way they were used (Kamakura comes to mind) and would want good stories like Snake-Eyes Declassified,

     

    SE declassified was a good story that was ruined by the 'idea' that SE and CC knew each other before Cobra started. That was trash and it makes me regret the DD story lines even more.

     

     

    Well, part of the "ugly" side of GIJOE, especially the comics, is that its really a soap opera. Serialize any fiction for any length of time and its inevitable.

    Fore example:

    Snake-eyes wants to marry Scarlet, but he's convinced they will never live a life of peace until his conflict with Stormshadow is resolved, but that's difficult because Stormshadow is in the thralls of COBRA. Stormshadow, meanwhile, has standing orders to kill Snake-eyes on sight, but is conflicted because Scarlet has somehow passed a message along to him that reveals some information that causes Stormshadow to reevaluate his anger towards Snake-eyes. In the background, COBRA Commander is aware of this, and schemes to somehow use this to his advantage, by possibly directing Stormshadow against some of this other enemies.

    Unbeknownst to him, Destro is secretly gathering his forces, making deals with the Dreadnoks on the sly.

    A mole in the COBRA organiztion is leaking all of this to Duke, who must decide to reveal it to the Jugglers, who may or may not grant him the resources he and the team need to lauch a decisive...........

     

    And through all this, Shipwreck is concerned about Polly's excessive molting, mostly on Flint's bunk and....

    Soapy, huh?

     

    The only thing missing from it being an episode of Eastenders is each of them sleeping with the other, and having someone pinch the silverware...

     

    Sure, but I just hated the way DD went back and rewrote Joe (Comic) history. That being said a reboot or dropping the DD continuity would give me interest in picking up the new line.

  6. I HIT WALMART YESTERDAY AND PICKED UP ONE WAVE 4 AIR TROOPER AS I NOTICED HE RANG FOR $5.44 INSTEAD OF $4.88. NOT TOO BAD STILL BEATS $5.99 AT TRU OR TARGET.

    Do yourself a favor and pay the extra 50 cents and tru and target and know that you are not supporting a company that tears down standards for American workers.

     

    Spot on, Bro! Target and TRU buy their toys from the Hasbro factory in Ohio, not CHINA!

  7. Hmmm....I've always wondered as well.

     

    However if you look at the first panel of the last page, in the lower right-hand corner, we see a figure running out of the HQ. It's small, but it's there. I've always wondered who it was? I suppose it could be Doc and Flagg, but it's clearly a single figure.
