  1. Just what IF it wasnt on clearance. I always wonder how could stores may mistakes to price higher priced item to be 50% off.
  2. Theres a notice in the boys toys section saying the employees WONT go in the back to see if they have the available item. and the store wont hold on to the item for guest.
  3. Im getting tired whenever I happen to goto a retailer theres no stuff available. Has anyone decided to call the local retailer beforhand to see if they have any of the GI Joes your looking for in stock on the shelves or some in the back.
  4. They should do it like the movie League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
  5. Scalper should pick another toy line to scalp, ie Pirates of the Carribean, Spiderman3. Theres just soo many of them on the pegs.
  6. Bludd is another one I wanted to see as well.
  7. Didnt see no mention of it for the upcoming waves, nor painted protype.
  8. I was expecting to see Battle armor CC in the pics.
  9. Man since Hasbro announced the 25th ann, I thought the pegs would be filled everywhere, like the other lines (Pirates, Turtles, Spidey3, Power rangers)
  10. heres my proof of the only Wave2 figs I got at Walmart
  11. I have to wonder, if the Joe figures he used on the Robot Chicken segments were his or others or bought extra version 1s off ebay to be customized for the show.
  12. Not to mention Storm Shadow's clan tattoo on his right forearm, just like its suppose to be.
  13. http://www.usaweekend.com/07_issues/070923/070923gi-joe.html Apparently I was right about CM Punk, Seth Green. I knew they had to be Joe fans.
  14. Found 1 cobra 5 pack a Target close by but STILL no singles. Im coming to the conclusion ALOT of people have been snatching singles than 5 packs. Its a good thing at the other Target close by my high school, I ask an employee if the 5 pack or singles are in stock. Luckily they had singles and the black Timber variant.
  15. I been checking retailers once or 2x a week for the past few weeks now, Targets I been to, have zilch everytime I go there, the Walmart I went to couple weeks ago just had numerous 5 packs but no singles. EVERYTIME I have a chance to talk a Target employee, they always say, uh we get new shipments everyday blah blah. So Im coming to the conclusion whenever I make a trip to a Target, that a. they always seem to be sold out of the ann stuff(hey they have the price tags for WEEKs on the pegs) whenever I make a trip, or b. they are slow in restocking.
  16. If Stephen Sommers can be respectful to the source material, then he can have my 8-10 bucks. The directors of certain comic book movies have been on most part, respectful to the source material the movie is based on ie Chris Nolan's Batman Begins, Zach Synder's 300, Richard Donner's Superman.
  17. I always thought that Snake Eyes was a weak minor character w/ not much character development until when people I met and they remember GI Joe, one character they mention is Snake Eyes.
  18. hey it would been kinda scary if there was a real life Golobulus, Serpentor, CC as was portrayed in the movie.
  19. I think Hasbro originally intended him to be Cobra Commander incognito but that idea was scrapped for some reason. If you think about it Cobra Commander had been turned into a snake in the movie and Serpentor seemingly fell to his death in the movie as well. While Golobulus survived, the rest of Cobra La had been destroyed and Hasbro had dropped the whole Cobra La gimmick. With Destro leaving Cobra to form the Iron Grenadiers you had a leaderless Cobra in '88,'89, and '90. A new Cobra Commander figure did not come out until 1991. So it makes sense that the Overlord would have been Cobra's new leader. Especially if you didn't read the comics or see 'Operation Dragonfire' which established that Serpentor had somehow survived his fall and Cobra Commander was brought back as Cobra's leader. off topic but somewhat related to the discussion. Its kinda like how in Japanese Transformers continuity, around the Headmasters, the Bots/Cons got new leaders. Incidently one of the new Con leaders in Japan WAS named Overlord.
  20. When I saw Sgt Slaughter on ESPN in 88-89, I thought that a GI Joe/Cobra organization REALLY exists. I thought Sgt Slaughter is gona fight someone from Cobra on AWA. I thought Overlord WAS the NEW leader of Cobra. I thought too Cobra Commander was some reptilian human hybrid. I thought Shipwreck was one of the weakest of the Joes I would consider battle armor CC the TRUE version 2 of the character since in the DIC eps, its him and IG Destro that are paired, and the talking battle commander version is the version3 of the character. I guess even to this day, when CC and Destro have new versions that come out at the same time they should be treated as version x. I always thought Mercer from the movie was British. I still think after carefully examine my namesake's card art/figure that he could have some Asian blood. I really thought Destro was 2nd in command of Cobra until he broke away and formed his own group Vipers were upgraded blue shirts, even though they still featured blueshirts in the 2nd season/movie. Serpentor v2 figure is really the resurrected version, hence the black parts.
  21. Cobra IG Destro 87 Cobra Commander Alexander Destro Zarana(not the custom) Zandar Zanzibar Zanya Road Pig Gnawgahyde Machete Alley Viper v1/v7 colors Night Viper Iron Grenadiers Voltar DD Storm Shadow Vipers Toxo Viper v1 Hydro Viper Snow Serpents Eels Tele Vipers Strato Vipers Star Vipers SAW Vipers Overlord Metal head Cesspool Headman Headhunters Joes GI Joe Hawk v2 Sgt Slaughter v2 Mercer Red Dog Falcon Jinx Tunnel Rat Law Chuckles Super Trooper Shockwave Heavy Duty
  22. Speaking of DD looking characters I actually WANT an Alexander McCullen in Destro uniform figure. I thought fans want DD Storm Shadow sooo badly.
  23. Forgot to mention, My Walmart has set aside space for the 25th ann stuff, has the price tag on the shelf. I dont know whats their problem, I talked with an associate, she said theyre doin inventory. Hey at least they reset on older TF toys.
  24. IM soo P*ssed at my Walmart right now, I was there an hr ago and they STILL won t put out the 25th singles/5 packs and they said they would around the week of the 5th.
