If you're talking about the Adventure Team figures in the coffin boxes they should be $9.96.

Yes, and $10 is really reasonable. I should have picked them up. :P

I grabbed Wave 3 (with the darker Stalker) from a local Target this morning.

Picked up the Cobra Legion's 5 pack today at Target.  Now I'm all caught up.  :)

Still no wave 2 or 3 near me. This is getting aggrivating...

It's all hit and miss.  I saw w2 for a few runs and now nothing.  w3 was a one time sighting only....give it time

I've tried to resist this line, but haven't been able to.  I'm not being a completist by any means, as I'm opening my Joes up and considering making a photonovel of the Joes attacking Cobra Island (similar to the original Joe comic).  I've even considered buying this for my Cobra base and painting it -




When Rob and I were at Toy Fair, I got some time with the Schleicht guys and they were really shocked and pleased that people in our scale would use their stuff.  They then gave me a decent tour and one of the head guys followed me around and made sure I got good photos..

I am going to DisneyWorld next week and the Germany Pavillion in Epcot carries all the Schleicht stuff, I may have to snag some Castle Destro Stuff while I am there....


I've been thinking about the future of Joe and going with what WE as Star Wars collectors know, I think Hasbro has a model they want to emulate from their SW line in their Joe as well.

We already have Single Packs and the Comic Packs.  We have Vehicles (Hiss/Awe Striker/Sharc) in the "Starfighter" range coming.  Even the Legions 5 pack is kind of "Evolutions-esque"

As a Joe fan would you support:  GI Joe in Galactic Hero styling/scale?  What about Unleashed Mini's?  Lego's? Force Battlers?  All of these would be RAH styled of course...

I could go for Lego's or Galactic Heroes (even though I don't collect the Star Wars versions of either)

I'd be down for some GH type sets for shizzo.  I could care less about any other subline...BUT I would bite if there were to release a line of 3" Titanium Joe/Cobra vehicles...That'd be sweet!

I doubt we'll see Lego Joes, as Lego is a completely different entity. I couldn't see Hasbro handing over the license to another toy company.

You are probably right on the Legos...but when the Movie stuff starts rolling out..you never know..

I like the Titanium Vehicles idea...I had not even thought about that..

The new Cobra Troops are growing on me but I must resist army building figures that can't sit or bend elbows correctly.

Cool, I think the Schleich stuff is amazing.  Well, the playsets/accessories.  The figures, if they had articulation might be something I'd be interested in. 

Anyways, I finally broke down tonight and ordered a few Schleich items online -







My intent is to try and use them for Star Wars photonovel work, but I still have my eye on that castle too.

Anyone here watch NCIS?  Last night's episode introduced an FBI agent named Courtney Krieger.  Wonder if that was an accident or if there's a Joe fan on the writing team.

On the 25th front, no new figures have hit locally in well over a month now.  Local WM is still not carrying the line at all and Target has had the grey reorder dots on the pegs for about 3 weeks now.

Well, the tree got taken off of my order, www.dianatoystore.com is sold out of them and emailed me to let me know.  Damn.  But they still have it listed on their site...   ???

Back to GI JOE - I found Wave 3 at Walmart today, picked up one of each figure except Shipwreck, all of them had funky paint jobs on the face/hat.  Not really a character I need too bad anyways though.  Zartan looks like the best of this wave to me.

I've seen Waves 1-3 in NW Indiana, and have gotten almost all of the ones I wanted.  Still missing Flint, can't find him anywhere.  Haven't seen the Red Ninja either.  I do so love this throwback styling.  I'm stuck on the fence on whether or now I should open these or leave them carded.

I was thinking today how cool it might be to get a whole set of these figures carded.  But, the opener in me just can't do that.   :-\

Anyways, check out the Hawk figure coming out... wow.
