  1. So my personal experience with these figures is: Walmart shipped Destro and Gung Ho in a box, and Lady Jay and the Baroness came in mailer envelopes... The cardboard Hasbro used for the cardbacks is the cheapest, thinnest cardboard you can imagine, the figures that came in the envelope fared the worst, with both cardbacks bent beyond any repair, and Lady Jay even had the top part of the plastic blister detached from the cardboard, so it's partially open now. I had intended to keep these figures sealed, as I have already collected all of their "classified" boxed counterparts, and I thought they would be a nice collector's item to display in cardbacks. Hasbro and Walmart destroyed those plans, the cheap packaging material, plus the way the figures were shipped totally wrecked any value the figures had. I will not collect any more of these "retro" figures, may my experience be a cautionary tale for other buyers out there, steer clear from this shameless cash grab. Bravo Hasbro! Bravo Walmart! Your anti costumer practices strike again, you've lost me as a costumer.
  2. Great figure, still waiting for McFarlane to address the issue with all day one pre orders being cancelled, they keep ignoring the topic even though they said on their official account they would look into it. As far as I'm concerned, McFarlane has lost me as a costumer.
  3. I'm so stocked, the alley viper was my favorite original GI Joe figure of all time, and I have been eagerly waiting for the new version of it since the classified series were announced! I can't wait to finally have that figure in my hands, I just hope it's not a hard to find exclusive.
  4. This is awesome! Thank you for the giveaway! GI Joe along was, along with other 80s cartoons, such a big part of my childhood, and I wished I would've been able to afford this vehicle when it came out back in the day, always dreamed about having this along with the USS Flagg to play with! Thank you again for the giveaway, and good luck to everyone!
  5. Thank you for the pics! Does anyone have the links to the target exclusives? Thank you!
  6. What an awesome figure, I still can't believe we got screwed by Target, I'm really hoping McFarlane does something to honor our pre-orders, I would hate to miss out on such an amazing figure, and most here, pre ordered on day one
  7. They cancelled my original Sept 3 preorder on Oct 8, it caught me by surprise, I checked online and was able to place a new preorder the same day. Today I received an email from target notifying me of a second cancellation for this item, I'm so upset, the only reason given to me was a "technical issue" with my order. I called target and they told me the item is out of stock and cannot be ordered again, I asked why my order was cancelled, twice in less than a week, they just offered an apology and I'm basically out of luck at this moment. I'm so disappointed, as I was able to secure a pre order the moment the item first came online, and to have it cancel twice feels like a slap in the face. I know no one from McFarlane is reading this, but I wish they knew how target treats their costumers and how we are just an expendable source of revenue to them, it's so insulting.
  8. The likeness for Geralt is way off, looks like someone transplanted the head of a bum into the body of a ninja turtle, what the heck...? Also, the regular figures are $32 each? That's almost a 60% increase in price from McFarlane's regular fare, what justifies such a price jump? Really sorry to say, Dandelion looks okay-ish, but overall, this is a hard pass from me, what a disappointment.
  9. I like the stop motion animation, we needed more of this type of action in the actual cartoon! One thing I can't get over with this new line, is He-man's face in this figure, he looks like a teenager who's about to order a latte at Starbucks, not any projection of power or aggressiveness
  10. Thank you for the link, I will paint this gunmetal and hang it on the wall next to my nerf paint modded master chief rifle, and soon to be joined by a paint modded mandalorian rifle!
  11. Just a quick update, today I received a notification from target stating my order for this figure has finally shipped! To all of you guys waiting for your pre-orders to ship, there's hope, don't feed the scalpers, just hold up a bit longer!
  12. I'm hesitant to go that route, but if target does finally cancel my pre order, I'll have to consider it, not wanting to feed the scalpers, and still hoping for a miracle. How sad is that, you have a legit pre order, from a reputable merchant, and you still get screwed, I didn't have any issues with the EE and Walmart exclusives from this wave. Thank you so much for your input, I wonder how many more of us are on this same boat, not like the big corporations really care, I thought McFarlane was different though, and yet, here we are.
  13. Thank you for the video, I really wish I had this figure, but alas, target has made obtaining it almost impossible... So I pre-ordered this figure online from target, the second it became available, so far target has emailed me twice asking to authorize a delay in my order, or it'll get cancelled automatically. Both times these emails were sent around 3am, and if I didn't respond, my order would've been cancelled, with no possibility to order this item again. This is pretty shady, and makes me feel like target took too many pre orders and is trying to cancel as many orders as possible as they don't have stock to meet demand. What bothers me the most is, I see scalpers selling this figure for over $100 on ebay, cuz some stores had these figures on shelves before any pre orders were fulfilled, what's the point of pre ordering if stores will put these on their shelves for scalpers to grab? I'm really curious, has anyone with a legit pre order received this figure? This is the only figure out of this wave I still haven't received, besides the SDCC Darkseid which hasn't been released yet, but that one is a target exclusive as well, so I'm worried my pre-order will go through the same BS again... Any of you guys had luck with this figure, please let me know.
  14. Lots of info coming in fast and furious today! Thank you for keeping us posted, I pre-ordered Darkseid and the BAF suicide squad wave, as well as the sdcc peace maker, I'm skipping the gold label king shark... Once again, thanks for posting all the pre order links, your work is much appreciated!
  15. Just got mine from a target store in CA. The employees there are really nice and I had no trouble checking out. Was also able to score both battle armor He-man and Skeletor! It was a great haul overall! I can post pics if you guys can suggest a good site to host!
