  1. Just found an SE and CC last night. Still hoping for one day finding a Duke and a Trooper
  2. Found a DG Stormshadow today too. Card was mangled but it was the only figure I had seen since June.
  3. They have cleared a whole aisle in my local walmart this morning and looks like the resetting is starting now. No Joes in my store but one of the motorcycles left.
  4. Related, but still kind of OT. Are these perhaps some of the rarest joes? Store exclusive, seems like each store got one case, and were found mostly during a one week period.
  5. that is actually not alarming at all. The case actually only has 6 figures in it, one of each Had no idea how they were packed, assumed the typical 12 case. That least explains the no pegwarmers for once.
  6. I have hit 10 Dollar Generals and only found one SE and SS. And talking to one store manage he knew what I was talking about and said one guy showed up once and bought the whole case as they were putting it out. -One store did have the cheapy VvV/Spytroops single figures, 4 different backer cards where they have been sold over the past 6 years or so. On a run today I tried the Family Dollar. No figures, there but they did have the budget line of Marvel Universe figures that DG carries so I guess it is still a posibility they could show. Big Lots, nothing other than a couple of old comic packs. Not even any PTE sets.
  7. I take it this has nothing to do with the figures that are at Dollar General? I have about 15 DG stores in my area and not a single one has these figures. I even checked a store out of state at my Aunt's town and they don't have it. This merchandise that is supposed to be available to consumers just isn't available to Midwest consumers... In SC here no Dollar Generals have any. I hit every store in 20 miles (7 or so)
  8. I am on the East Coast and typically takes just less than 2 weeks. Mine just arrived today. Ordered from them quite a bit and have never had any problems
  9. Just saw this fcor sale at Rite-Aid at Rebelscum.com http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/More_Rite_Aid_Sales_128385.asp
  10. The new Water Moccasin is listed on tru.com now. Out of stock at the moment, but this is the first time I have seen it. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3870040
  11. I saw a City Strike Duke from that wave on a peg, but that is the only sign of it I have seen.
  12. No sightings of the SU-27 but there were sightings of the ARH & IFV. My Big Lots told me their truck is coming Friday so hopefully they will have the larger sets on it. Are those two new? They have been out for about a year now, but I don't think they ever made it to the US (like alot of their cooler items). I've seen them both on ebay in the past (in the UK) but not for a few weeks. Pics here http://forums.yojoe.com/showthread.php?t=61995&page=5 and page 6
  13. Shopping trip time. Have they had the new SU-27 and ARH helicopter or is it the usual assortment?
  14. I got a catalog in the mail the other day and saw they were listed again for this Christmas. Since they are pretty popular when available I thought I'd just pass along the news. http://www3.jcpenney.com/jcp/X5.aspx?DeptID=52440&CatID=53215&cmCatLevel=4&CmCatId=52440|52478
  15. AVOID the Scorpion Gunship!!! That is of course unless you are looking for something for your little Sigma 6 figures.
  16. They were released in Canada in what appears to be very limited numbers. I just got to Dragoncon and asked everyone I know in Canada to look for them to pick me up a set and no one has seen them.
  17. Sorry about the delay in posting pics . I don't know the sources any more so I can't give credit. The 4x4 one had a Firefly fig where full clothing was worn so I think it 'may' have been the guy that makes the coats for figures. I forget his name. In this one the floor board was cut away at the seat level (in pic) and the figure doesn't Chewbacca out the cockpit. Not good pics of the second with hte fig in cockpit http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/83/stormfrontgtg004.jpg 1. Trimmed Skystorm Cockpit http://img38.imageshack.us/img38/1792/a387301c.jpg http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/2350/4baac63b.jpg http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/1460/2ba040fd.jpg 2.

Trimmed cockpit. http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/2582/cimg1225.jpg http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/105/cimg1226y.jpg http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/1461/cimg1228.jpg http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/8131/cimg1229y.jpg There are also pics of another trimmed cockpit with what looks like Alyosha's Sgt Stone figure. Maybe his Dragohawk? (if he has pics) or a customer of his.
  18. http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-joe-cust...3-3-4-figs.html And this old thread, no images http://forums.toynewsi.com/index.php?showtopic=2021634
  19. For the Dragonhawk some slight trimmings could be made to a Skystorm pilot seat and it would fit nicely for one person. Somebody also did a nice styrene one from scratch. For the Firebat some people trimmed out the existing seat/footrest and it could fit some of the slimmer (mainly female) 3.75 figures. I think I have the pics of these mods saved on my machine at home and will check later this AM
  20. I was going to throw up a pic of my loose ones, but I can't find the camera. Your collection is much neater and better displayed anyway. What is that clear rack you have the loose ones on? No clunky R1 (I forget the exact name from ANH) and McQuarrie Artoo? Which was the hardest one to get for you? EP1 R2-B1 was the one for me. Prices for this version were always insanely high (the never made it to the pegs around here) and I didn't want to pay a ton.
  21. We've got a case or so of the B-Wings at my TRU. Still haven't seen any vehicles beside the first wave anywhere.
  22. Same here. No spoilers here but wow, Dial-tone is female? An odd change, but nothing too terrible since they got rid of the moustache. I love the new PIT, not claustrophobic. The towers look to it is very nice, but seems almost to large. Makes me think of Menzoberranzan.
  23. I believe this is the gun he is supposed to have. http://world.guns.ru/assault/as78-e.htm Stumped me for awhile since I had assumed it was a WWII gun
  24. Anyone who ordered just letting you know they are shipping.
