Re: GI Joe 30th Ann

Nothing new besides the same JSF's we've seen for 345890345769085743560987 years. Its an ivory-army builders dream lately for me.

Re: GI Joe 30th Ann

Seems like it's been really slow this year. I would've thought different being a Anniversary year.

Re: GI Joe 30th Ann

Well a lot of Hasbro's resources have been dedicated to Spiderman 3 and Transformers so despite it being the 30th Anniversary their main consumer base is a little sidetracked and with it Hasbro must follow. Sad for us collectors

Yeah, that's true.


Anybody happen to pick up any extra exclusives(McQ Yoda and Obi, and the R2-KT) off of the Hasbro site? If so, any hook-ups?

Re: GI Joe 30th Ann

nah, both out of stock. i really wanted the pink r2 for my daughter, but more so because of the story of the little girl. i don't know why they wouldn't make that available in mass and let the proceeds go to charity, her family, etc..

I agree, I'm guessing there will be more of both again but it seems you have to check the site every 5 minutes to make sure you get one. I didn't get the Hasbro email till last night and by the time I looked they were sold out.

Cool! Just got both too. I was hoping they would've had the McQ Obi and Yoda but no dice.

Looks like they were up at the Hasbro shop too but "sold out" by the time I got there.

Re: shadow speederbike and r2-kt

I just placed my order for the Concept Obi-Wan & Yoda.

Bedrock has most of the Con exclusives, marked up of course (the concept figs are $29.99), but I couldn't help but get the glow in the dark Vader bobblehead.

And on the homepage it says the new Comic Packs & wave 4 are being found. Time to hit the pavement again. I hope we get some decent weather for a while.

New Comic Packs Found

Found the new comic packs at the Target on I-10 at Fry. Unfortunately, I got the last ones. I checked the Targets in Richmond/Rosenberg and the one on Grand Parkway at Westheimer Parkway and they all had none.

Re: shadow speederbike and r2-kt

No sign of the Comic Book packs this weekend, but I did see the new Saga Legends at Dunvale Wal-Mart today.
I picked up a 501st Clone and left another.

They also had some of the new Legendary Comic Book Heroes.
They're a line of comic book characters from the company formerly known as ToyBiz.
I got all of the Pitt Build-a-Figure series except for Super Patriot. If anyone can pick one up for me if they see one I'd appreciate it.

Here's what he looks like

And the Meyer Park WM had the 25th ann. GI Joe box sets as of last night for $24.98, and one Cobra set was left.

Yup! I picked up my initial set for $12 each but then found them at a Walmart for $6, so I took the $12 ones back. Then the 2nd set for $3! Stoked!


Now where's Tac wave 4?

Saw an endcap full of LCBH with several Super Patriots at the 6/Westpark Walmart this morning.

Hope this helps.

The Wal-mart on the Beltway over by the old Auchan near Beechnut & Bissionet had an endcap full of the Legendary Comic Book Heroes, including the variant Super Patriot (unmasked) and variant Judge Death (clear).

Re: Comic Three Packs

The 3 Comic 2-packs? Ci?

Kemah WM has a couple McQ Stormtroopers and a Chewbacca for those that need them. Looks like WM's are redoing the toy aisles in the ones I've been in.

Re: Comic Three Packs

Thanks for another tip, ace. I got the last set of Comic Book figs at Meyerland Target this morning. They must've done a restock because Monday night when I was there the toy aisle was just about empty.
I also got the latest JLU box set. It's the Justice Lords versions of Superman, Batman & Wonder Woman with Bizarro, a clear green Amazo & a red Doomsday.

Re: Comic Three Packs

The Silverlake Target also had all three of the new comic packs as off about 9:00 p.m. this evening.

And since I just got back into town and haven't read through all the posts yet, has anyone found anything from wave 4 yet?

New Titanium

If anyone collects the small Titanium Star Wars & Battlestar Galactica ships, I found the new ones at the Wal-mart in Richmond/Rosenberg. The ships are mostly repaints with 1 new one. The new one is the AT-AP and the repaints are A-Wing (green), Tantive IV (Blue markings), Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper Mark II (Black), & Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper Mark VII (White).

On a different note... has anyone seen any of the basic figs Wave 4 or 5? Both waves were scheduled to come out in August, but I haven't seen a thing! Also, on wave 2 of the Legends figs, have all of wave 2 been sighted? I ask, because it seems most people, including myself, have only spotted the Sandtrooper and Boussh.

Re: New Titanium

oh okay, thanks! I'm just looking to pick up a Fett and a 501st.
Another thing... are the McQuarrie Stormtroopers being shipped again? I picked up 1 at a Wal-mart on Saturday! Imagine my surprise!

Re: New Titanium

I picked up a 501st last week, but it's still made from the same AT-TE Gunner body. Supposedly the SA Clone body will be a running change.
So far I haven't seen or heard anyone finding wave 4 yet.
