I thought I'd start a seperate thread for WI G.I. Joe sightings.

So to start it off, I haven't seen jack! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Super Target has two figs on the pegs and the comic packs are overloading. Same with the West side Target. Reports are their exclusives should be hitting the clearance shelves. I have yet to see wave 7.

The west side Target was full of wave 7 last week. I think they still had one or two there this morning. If I remember right, the Monona Walmart had them last week too.

What are the new comic packs?

Marshfield is still slim pickings. Typically it takes a month to two months to even find Star Wars here. The latest wave that is out here has Wild Bill, Spirit, Another version of Snake Eyes, two versions of Duke. No vehicles in sight anywhere.

Zamps would you like me to pick up any that you have on your list that may be here? Jeff aka Facehammer can vouch for me. We collect Micronauts and customize them.
Happy Collecting

I can indeed vouche for the Doc!

I was able to find Wave 7 (w/wild bill etc...) in Portage a couple of weeks ago. Also ran into them again this last weekend at the West side Madison Target. (man I need like a million HISS drivers... one of my favorite all time figures...)

Anyway, with wave 8 and the new comic packs hitting, I'll be out looking again soon. I'll have to make sure to see what you guys are looking for. I've been kind of lucky with Joes so far...

And of course when I go to Target they have nothing!

Any of you guys check out these websites?

I go to hisstank quite a bit, but there are quite a few 'pro scalper' guys over there that make a whole lot of noise whenever the notion of someone buying all of the newest figures just to put on ebay...

actually the rebirth of Joe is really reminding me of the rebirth of Star Wars from 95. The same attitudes are going on. Pretty funny actually. (...lack of figures is due to Hasbro and retailers not ordering enough, not because people go into stores and buy everything that they have...right...)

I still post as facehammer over there.

Keep your eyes open, it seems like wave 7 is hitting with some force at least. At least it was for that 2 week span until wave 8 hit... ugh.. I was looking forward to a small break in collecting.

Madison West Wal-Mart had Wave 3 and 4 this morning! It was about time. After 13 figs my wallet is empty! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

...and since this is the Joe posting area... Who has ordered Doc? I didn't order until a couple weeks ago. I wanted to order 2 and just ended up buying multiples of the Fred/Scarface pack to fill out the form since I know I won't be able to get to my Flag Points for a long time.

(I'm glad Hasbro is doing mail aways again. Yes they're annoying, but still kind of fun after all these years)

Correct, it's the 8th wave total but the 4th wave for '08. There was only one case. The breakdown was one of each with an extra Cobra Viper packed in.

The other case breakdown was 1 Wild Bill, 1 Hiss, 1 Spirit, 1 Duke, 2 Cobra Viper and 2 SE. It looked like they put out 1.5 cases of this wave.

The Wal-mart in Delavan has about 5-6 each of the wave with Wild Bill, Viper, and the HISS Driver.

And if you wanna army build cobra troops and crimson guards, the Lake Geneva Target is the place to be - at least 8 of each.

Thanks again to Scarecrow for the pick up today! Now I just have to find the new Roadblock and MASS device CC. Those should be easier to find...

And I was tasked with finding the East side (madison) WalMart for my wife. So I checked out what they had... lots of Air Troopers for some reason, so if you are army building, head there.

EDIT: Actually that should be the Lake Geneva Wal-Mart, and not the Delavan Wal-Mart....even though I'm pretty sure no one's going down there anyways, thought I'd correct myself. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Had to run to Portage today. Found the remnants of Wave 8/4 or I guess I'll say "the latest wave"...

I picked up the CC that I was missing as well as a couple other figures for a buddy of mine. I did notice that the Baroness that I got last weekend didn't have the Cobra logo on her. The one that I picked up for my buddy did... (I seem to have bad luck with Baroness. My first one had 2 left hands...)

Anyway, now I just need to find that new Roadblock and I'm back to caught up (except for the new comic packs... anyone seen those around?)

facehammer
06-06-2008, 10:25 PM
Ok got caught up tonight. Went to Portage Walmart and scored Roadblock. Picked up a couple figures for a buddy of mine as well. Now if I could just find the new comic packs...

Oh, Scarecrow. I haven't heard from my friend if he picked up Shipwreck or not. (I'm assuming not since I haven't heard anything) But I did see that there were a couple of them at the Shopko by West Towne. Of course they are like 7.99 or something foolish like that.

I am not doing the new Joe's but I noticed a box on a pallet the other day. I like how small they are and how they pack them. If only the new SW toys packed like that, I would have a lot more space!

They almost pack them too tight! It's hard some times to find minty fresh figs.

If you haven't already noticed, the Sideshow Snake Eyes is available for pre-order! $119.99, ouch!

ShyTown
06-17-2008, 12:02 AM
I found a cool find at the Wal-Mart in Delavan today...a Python Patrol Cobra Trooper, and a Tiger Force Flint. They looked really cool carded and brought a flood of memories from when I thought 5 bucks was a fortune...but I can't bring myself to buy these figs at full price....I love GI Joe and all, but if a figure can't even hold his gun, then it's a huge pass for me.

They also had the Snake Eyes with a black trench coat and army green pants, no idea what he's from....they also had about 6 Cobra Vipers.

If anyone is looking for the Iron Grenadiers Destro, the Wal-Mart in Whitewater has had one for about 5 weeks, it's still there, I saw it today after work, around 4pm.

Zamps

Has anyone seen the latest Joes, Wave 9? It looks like it's starting to hit Wal-Mart. There have been sightings in Janesville and Beloit.

facehammer
07-07-2008, 07:16 AM
Nothing yet. I was in Janesville on Saturday. Saw 2 of the new comic packs at TRU. Copperhead/Shipwreck and Duke/Red Star. I had just gotten them in the mail on Thursday.

Hopefully the new stuff will show up in force soon.

laboratory
07-10-2008, 02:40 PM
As of 1:45 Thursday, Madison TRU has several of each figure from the Wild Bill/Spirit/HISS Driver wave.

I did find the BBQ/Snow Serpent/BATS wave at a Super Walmart in the middle of Nowhere, Nebraska last week, so they should be here nowish...

facehammer
07-15-2008, 11:19 PM
Haven't seen anything new lately. Still looking for the latest wave. I did get the 2 Docs that I sent for. Pretty nice.
Anyone else see the latest wave? I have a feeling that as soon as I find them, the next wave will be out the next day.

NickRyder
07-15-2008, 11:28 PM
I know Chase got the wave with Spirit and Jetpack Duke, but that whole case pretty much flew out in like a day last week. I'm always shocked at how quickly the GI-Joe's sell out - although those same 2-3 Scarlett Comics Packs are still pegwarming. Wal-Mart in Franklin had a crapload of the GI-Joe Xamot Tomax packs. But I haven't seen any new single figs in weeks anywhere.

Course now the prices have jumped considerably, from what? $5.99 to $7.99? Yikes 2 bucks difference... uhm gee for a line that is totally owned by Hasbro too. I like that comment from Hasbro in the last Q&A "Just stick to the Star Wars and IJ line questions"

I normally love Hasbro stuff, but lately... they're starting to really get even more money grubbing than they used to be. Repaints/rehashes/repacks are one thing. But jacking up the prices so quickly is another. What are we gonna see in 09? 9.99 basic figures? Which is sorta moderately 'ok' in bigger lines like Marvel Legends and such, okay there's A LOT of articulation and such and big acessories, ie: more plastic. But why is a figure half the size of a ML only about a dollar less? And really you think Hasbro would almost WANT to keep the Joe line cheap, simply because its really the longest running toyline ever. I mean if you count the larger GIJOES in the 60s and going all the way through to now, its run pretty much continually for almost what? 40-50 years?

facehammer
07-16-2008, 07:32 AM
You would also think that since Joes are a house brand for hasbro, i.e. no licensing like Star Wars, that would keep the price low. I'd say it is demand that caused Hasbro to increase the price. I can't see any other reason that something that cost 4.88 last year would cost 7.99 this year... (when the cost of Star Wars has only jumped a buck)

Zamps
07-16-2008, 08:36 AM
Wal-mart still has them at $6.84, which is still too high. I have not seen the lastest wave: BBQ, BAT, etc. I did preorder a case but have not received it yet.

facehammer
07-16-2008, 08:57 AM
Oddly enough, the Kmart in Portage has Joes for 5.99. Which last year made them expensive. This year it makes them the best deal around... if you want last years figures.

I think I may be about ready to just start preordering stuff.

Did anyone not order a Doc? I have 3 left over stickers from the latest comic packs up for grabs. I won't be able to get to them until after Tues of next week when we move, but they are yours for the taking.

You need 6. I just got a pm from Laboratory for them, so I think they are spoken for. Although I'm not entirely sure if I'm going to keep my extra Doc. Just thought it would be fun to get some mail away stuff. If I decide to part with it I'll put you at the top of the list Zamps...

I almost got the HISS and the Joe Jeep....almost. Pm me for where I saw them if you're interested. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Also, Brookefield TRU has a bunch of their exclusive battlepacks - night camo'ed cobra troopers and another with snake eyes and a bunch of red ninjas - and 2 different 3 packs - the ones with Duke and blue Cobra Commander.

Today at Madison Wal-Mart I saw a Snake Eyes with what I thought was a black timber. I was excited and snatched it up. Upon inspection I realized someone took out the timber and swapped it with a junkyard-like dog! They used a half-***** tape job to seal the blister back to the card.

East Madison Target had new Joe stuff out FINALLY. Had the newest wave--BAT, Snow Serpent black suit Storm Shadow, etc. Also had the newest comic packs--I nabbed the pack with the chrome-black Destro. I was beginning to worry for a while they'd never get anything new in.

08-01-2008, 09:10 PM
Good to hear that they are finally hitting. Was there much there or was it one of those one case deals? I need to get out and look around a bit more. I have a buddy of mine that scored a Hiss for me as well as the DVD pack that I was missing. That leaves the latest wave of figures and the comic packs...

Zamps

You called it, Facehammer--looks like it was just one case of each. I could be mistaken as I was there around 2pm, but there was still one of each figure from the new wave, two of the Destro comic packs and at least one of each with Tripwire/Cobra Commander and Falcon/Nemesis Immortal.

I'm not schooled enough in the Joe line to know which figs are in which wave, but yesterday when I was up in the Dells I saw figures such as the Cobra B.A.T., Major Bludd, and a black-clad Storm Shadow.

No, nothing crazy rare. Just released though. It is just the Snake Eyes with Timber that came out with the original wave 1 last year. The only difference now is that the card is not the 25th Anniversary (It probably says 'from the gi joe comic series' or something to that effect) and the diaper crotch has been fixed...

I just wish it would have been released in all black... I'm sure that one is coming.

Regular....does the blue one even exist?

Chase figures in G I Joe...what gives...

facehammer
12-10-2008, 08:43 AM
Yeah, it exists. But I'm amazed at what is being considered a variant in the world of Joe. A few of the figures have had 'number variants'. This is simply that the weapon has either a tiny number 1 or a number 2 on it. Those are mold cavity numbers. (and having worked in the plastics industry for far too long, they are on pretty much everything that gets made in multiple cavities...) There are huge debates as to whether or not this is a variant and helps to make hard to find figures, impossible to find figures. (of course not around here since they haven't been found on the pegs yet.

Anyway, it is really reminding me of the relaunch of Star Wars in 95. Lots of overbuying and thinking everything is worth a mint. I can just sit back and laugh now.

But yes, the clear blue Wraith exists and I believe is not too hard to find, according to what some folks are saying (where they have been released anyway)

Do you get the feeling that these may be more popular than the Star Wars Mighty Muggs? It seems to me that the other lines of MM are just a better representation of the style that the MM are going for. The Marvel are great (but I can't get sucked into another line...) I think the Joes are Great and the upcoming TFs look great as well. The SW are much easier to pass on for me. I still think Lando is the best so far...

The SW ones are not on clearance here, unfortunately. They lowered the regular price to 54.99.

LOL! I went back to Wal-mart after work yesterday. I saw a mom rolling out with a cart full of 6 of FP's Smart Cycle video game for kids and she was holding one. I wish I had a camera.



Was it this lady?

She was scalping TF toys last Christmas so I looked her up (ebay ID is her name.. duh). Since then, I've seen her at Target numerous times, filling her cart with hot toys or cleaning out the clearance crap.

Does anyone's UBP figures have helmets on? The back of the packaging shows the figures with helmets. But none of them have them on, including Cobra Commander. He looks ridiculous with just a silver head.

Maybe I have some ultimate, rare UBP! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I don't collect Joe but when I was in the Dollar Store the other day (actually I think it's Dollar General??) I saw these Joe's in mini-packaging. The figures were totally different & cheap-o quality but the packaging was pretty cool - similar with what's out there now...character art, etc, but with different characters. I was almost tempted to get one but I passed. I think they were $3.

Those have been around for awhile. If I remember right, they don't come with any accessories.

Dollar Tree and Dollar General both have those, I think some of them are repacked Valor Vs. Venom and/or SpyTroops Joe figures. They do have some accessories. I bought a Baroness came with a pretty cool rifle. Dust Up or whatever his name was I'm planning on modding into something of a Hoth Trooper or some generic bounty hunter. I traded some kinda trooper to Jimmy 2 Pack at the last CHG meeting. They've got some custom fodder potential, but yeah compared to the 25th stuff its almost laughable.

It was originally going to be a SuperTarget, but now it is not (according to my sources in Sun Prairie).

Maybe they will close the east side store? It is a bit dumpier than the average Target and off the beaten path... I didn't even know it was there until I lived in Madison for 12 years...

They just updated the east side Target last year. That place is always packed too so I doubt they'll close it.

On a semi-related topic... the Fitchburg Target had Mighty Muggs Baroness and Destro. I didn't buy them, but Destro looks really good with his chrome head.

So does that mean they are not carrying them anymore? I wonder if that's because the 25th line is ending and the movie line of figures are different.
