View Full Version : Who has been the toughest 25th Anniversary figure

12-08-2007, 06:51 PM
Who has been the toughest 25th Anniversary figure for you to locate? I would have to say for me it is Zartan. I have only seen him once. I now have waves 1-3 carded and all of them loose except Zartan, Cobra Officer, Snake Eyes w/timber(I saw these every where and now they are gone), and Shipwreck.

12-08-2007, 07:10 PM
I have had no trouble finding any of the figure including variants except for the yellow Stalker. I think itís like the Yeti. People say they exist but all Iíve seen of them is blurry pictures.

12-08-2007, 07:22 PM
I haven't seen a yellow stalker or a shark tattoo Shipwreck

12-08-2007, 10:26 PM
Ditto above plus the Snake Eye w/timber variant.

12-09-2007, 12:37 AM
Flint was the hardest for me until recently i got x3 of him and Cobra Officer. I have also not seen a single variant at all??. I need Storm Shadow, Cobra Officer to complete my wave 1-3 minus the variant's. Anyone have those 2? i would trade a flint for both or offer anything else to get those 2! to complete my waves.

12-10-2007, 12:07 AM
How hard are these going to be to track down? Variants I could care less about but so far I haven't had too much issues finding any of the new Joes.

Zartan. Still haven't seen him ever. The rest have all been readily available. I even found wave 5 just yesterday!

Zartan. Still haven't seen him ever. The rest have all been readily available. I even found wave 5 just yesterday!

Really there is a bunch at my Wal-Mart no wave 4 or 5 though and i have 2 myself (Zartan). Would you be willing to trade a Wave 5 figure or Wave 4 figure for a Zartan?. I still have not seen any Wave 4 yet http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif I also have 2 Flints for trade.

I am looking for>

Wave3- Sgt Stalker (yellow camo, 1st release)
Wave 4- Duke (w/ backpack), Roadblock, Gung-Ho, Destro (v1), Cobra Air Trooper.
Wave 5- Snow Job, Blade Destro (v2, Iron Grenadiers), Sgt Flash.

12-10-2007, 08:50 AM
All of them. I only saw my first carded Cobra Trooper this past weekend and bought him. Still want a few more of him, Zartan and Firefly.

12-10-2007, 09:53 AM
Toughest would probably be Shipwreck or Zartan? I managed to find one of two Zartans at a TRU before they went poof thankfully, but that's the only time I've seen him. Sad too, I want to rebuy him since the paint job on mine kind of blows. Shipwreck I only saw on Black Friday but couldn't nab him, now he's gone and I have yet to see another.

12-10-2007, 12:06 PM
Here in Dubuque, IA all the figures have been spotty. I haven't seen any varients. I just picked up my first Cobra Trooper last week.

12-10-2007, 04:24 PM
I've seen them all around here, but Flint is the rarest of all, as he seems to get gone fast.

12-10-2007, 07:22 PM
I haven't had a hard to find one yet, but I have seen the shark tattoo Shipwreck, only when wave 3 first hit.

Zartan, I only have seen him twice. But everyone else has been pretty frequent, as long as the shipments come in.. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

12-10-2007, 09:55 PM
I've seen 4 Flints in the last week and a half. I think he's going to be real common since he's being packed in these new revision cases.

12-11-2007, 05:58 PM
I've seen all at retail except yellow Stalker.

12-11-2007, 06:03 PM
It would have to be either Yellow Stalker, or Gold SDCC Destro. Both of these figures continue to mock me. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

12-11-2007, 07:18 PM
Can't find Shipwreck, Zartan, Stalker.
Flint, Lady Jay, Codra Commander, Serpentor, and Snake Eyes are all hangers. They are everywhere.

12-11-2007, 09:25 PM
Up until last month, I'd say all of them except for Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander and Snake Eyes. Now I've seen all of them at least once with the exception of Shipwreck. Haven't seen him a single time but it's cool since I don't want him. Never cared for him.

12-11-2007, 09:38 PM
Pretty much all of them. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Most of my collection I bought from members here. The only figures I was able to find in stores were Zartan, Snake Eyes, Stalker and Beechhead. Oh, and the 5-packs. I finally thought I was all caught up, and then wave 5 started showing up. Just had to happen right before christmas. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Wave 1
Cobra Commander (Hooded) 2
Snake-Eyes (Ninja w/Timber) 8
Flint 6
Storm Shadow 3
Cobra Officer 9

Serpentor 3
Buzzer 3
Lady Jaye 5
Cobra Trooper 7
Beach Head 6

Wave 3
Stalker 8
Shipwreck 7
Firefly 6
Zartan 9
Red Ninja 5

12-12-2007, 11:51 AM
I have actually seen every figure so far exept Flint, although I have never looked for variants. I was able to find a gold Destro once, but mostly the shelves here have armies of Serpentor and Lady Jaye.

12-12-2007, 01:53 PM
For the first three waves, I'd say Zartan. He always seems to be the first to go, and a couple weeks ago I spotted most of the others between two Targets with the exception of no Zartans. I'm sure all the variations on this plus his popularity is helping drive that.

12-13-2007, 09:39 AM
I just picked up Zartan actually. Also saw 3 Snow Jobs and a couple hooded Cobra Commanders as well as Royal Guards at the Wal Mart.

I can check on things again if people need certain figures.

Oh and I saw the Cobra Ninja on the pegs as well. First time I've seen that one.

12-13-2007, 06:44 PM
I found a couple Zartans and a Red Ninja at a Walmart at lunch. Crimson Guards in particular, but all of the wave 5 in general, are nuts on Ebay right now. I caved and ordered a set (not fighting crowds at Walmart is good for sanity) but if you're back there and see the CGs I'd take a couple.

12-13-2007, 06:56 PM
I gotta go back and return some Cars uh, figures? so I'll grab 'em if I see them and PM ya. Just two or however many I see?

12-13-2007, 11:14 PM
wide crotch firefly, havent seen a one.

12-13-2007, 11:15 PM
Haven't seen 4 or 5 here yet, the toughest from waves 1-3 would be the red ninja. Those are always gone.
