oh damn did yall see the zombie vipers pics over at general joes?
imma need about a half a dozen of those...

I think im out
for real
I said here before that I have left over distobution before and with all the rehashes and main charcters really being all they offer anymore I will be able to make up anything I missed within a short period when I do ever come back
but I was leaning towards this for a while but having picked up MU and GI joes habits lately, I just cant get excited about the prospect of going to 4 Wal marts and 3 targets thrice a week at the chance of finding the one or two figures I could use from these vastly under distibuted waves, and even THEN having to pay  acouple bucks more for them than I would pay for a MU or joe.
I was actively hunting teh cho trooper and a Wicket, some FTS, but now everytime I consider hunting I just pick up a coupel Cobra troopers or an X man

think anyone on here would have some of the outdated versions of main characters to sell as a lot? I dont have ANY Duke, CC, Destro, Barroness, Forefly Zartan, ect and I know they have replaced those characters a lot so I figure somone might have some of the earlier versions for sale for a good price, im trying to put together a cast of main characters to play with my son

It was the snake eyes version, and I didnt know that those knee pads will come off.
Ive been away from Joes since about 2001, and before that I had been away since about 1990. Now I have to rebuild a cast from scratch

I dont follow well enough to now what wave he came out of but I picked up a Dr Doom single carded this week, its pretty nice

Because they are completely tone deaf and sell action figures like they are a commodity like apples einstead of character driven?

I would liek to see the bigger silver one thet they plan the palace raid standing beside, its more prominately featured than teh green one anyway

is Hasbro ready to admit that they make terrible case assortment decisions yet?

Local TRU had a moving sale, picked up a CC pilot
and Costco has RC hailfire droids on sale for $19.97

I havnt seen a current figure at TRU since the Vintage launch
Why are these retailers just REFUSING to stock or order vintage AT ALL, its all of them, and they will not budge on even poutting out one case for ging on the second year now.
Ive seen Q&A questions and hasbro only say they are working n it but nothing ever improves and changes, there are still white clones and wave 1 crap leftovers sitting gathering dust, and no retailer anywhere I can go will order so much as one cas and put it out, I mean if you arent gonna carry teh line just DONT CARRY IT, why pretend to carry it but NEVER order or stock ANTHING for this long?
Hell from a corporate stand point its wa waste of shelf spaca having all those empty pegs sticking out for pver a year with the Vintage figures and there was nearly aas bad a situation with teh last half dozen waves of legacy. Hasbro should peg case sales of the different line, not ship the retailers ANY clone wars or legends cases unless they also order one case of Vintage. This isnt som isolated collecter niche prolblem EVERYONE wants the vintage figure and Hasbro and the retailers and just tone deaf to it, and we have even told them in Q& A so they KNOW We want them, why cant they get their crap together? IS IT MARKETING PEOPLE TRYING ON PRUPOSE TO BUILD EXCLUSIVITY? BEACUE THEY ARE RUINING THE HOBBY FOR MANY OF US WHO HAVE BEEN IN IT FOR 30 YEARS JUST TO PROVE SOME POINT THAT WE ARENT EVEN SEEING
