  1. I wonder how much more it would go for if they would ship it internationally. Once again, sticking it to our friends in Canada. And other countries. Hell it should be cheap for them now, what with how the dollar's doing.

  2. heard of it, just hadn't seen that version before with swapping up the bar codes to fool walmart employees, as opposed to just returning it with a different figure in the package. lol i still have yet to see someone just try to put a green or tan plastic army man in a gi joe pack and try returning it. that would take some balls & a stupid employee!

  3. As I've been out hunting for 25th Joes lately, I've kept running into a common problem at a few Atlanta area WalMart stores: namely, someone's been returning EVO troopers & Shadow Guard figures.

     

    At least according to the bar code.

     

    What they've been doing though is taking the older clone troopers from the 2003 Pre-vintage/ROTS clones and opening the packs, then inserting the bar codes from the newer star wars figures over them, then re-stapling them and returning them to WalMart.

     

    And of course, no one checks the back to see that they're basically 5-6 year old toys getting swapped out for the newer ones.

  4. Our TRU has Wave 5 (Frederick, MD)...I just got IG Destro, 2 CGs, Flash and Snow Job..but passed on the Snake Eyes repaint. So they HAVE officially started showing up here on the East Coast.

     

    uh yeah, found 'em last weekend at a few different targets w/o prices showing up. stocked up on cg's for $3 apiece @firedevil@ havne't see them at a TRU yet though. the ones near me don't have normal space for it, just a few pegs at the end of the aisle and then sigma six still wasting space.

  5. picked up a cg today not in target's system and a few legions packs at a target while a guy next to me was on the phone with another collector getting the other last two @loll@

     

    edit: this was one of the atlanta targets

    Also, if they make Footloose, they could easily come up with Rumbler & Claymore figs...

  7. saw the new 5packs and singles wave at a target last night, no black timbers or officers are left....oh, for the atlanta people out there, it's the old target on roswell road.

     

    pretty much everything's left except the officer. preordering on this was pretty sweet, thanks BBTS!

  8. completely OT NCAA 08 is out on Tuesday 7/17, so be wary if you're going in to buy it.

     

     

    huh?

    yeah he's right, i had my hopes up thinking it was out this tuesday and not the 17th (next tuesday)

     

    and yeah kamen, it is the TRU near cumberland mall. i ended up near kennesaw last night and went to the one at barrett parkway, and picked up an unmessed with cobra set there. there is/was one cobra 5pack left when i left heh.

  9. Stopped by a TRU on the way home to pick up ncaa 08 and saw the new joe 5 packs. In my excitement I didn't bother to look closely at the Cobra pack. Someone had switched out the trooper in it with a DTC cobra trooper. Idiotic of me not to look closer, so now I have to go return it. Just a head's up for everyone else!

  10. Kamen, not sure what part of Atlanta you are in, but I've found Vos at varying Wal-Marts and Targets in the Kenessaw and Alpharetta areas. Try around there. Also in further north in Canton and Ellijay.

     

    I'm in downtown/Midtown Atlanta. I'll be out in the Snellville area tomorrow. I'll look then. Thanks!

     

    I finally saw some airborne and galactic marines again at TRU off cobb pkwy and up in kennesaw....I keep missing the mcquarrie figs :( but don't forget to check either of the super walmart's up on cobb pkwy...yes even the old ghetto one that is less than two miles from the nicer new one heh. or the kmart by the chicken ;) jk i've never found anything at that kmart.

  11. It's a pretty good idea. Also cuts down on the "no, that's not what they said, they said this..." arguments after the convention :D It's kind of funny how fast they're going through the slides for the panel though. They cover a lot of info pretty quickly, I wish people at my work went through powerpoint that fast.
