Is the single carded Tripwire any different than the Comic Pack one that came with Cobra Commander?

I didn't buy the comic pack because I knew he was coming on a single card.  But I don't think he's different other than the accessory, which I wanted also.

Was this whole FedEx/USPS thing ever fully explained?  My last few orders from HTS got delivered directly to me from FedEx.  Looks like they're back to their old tricks again and they delivered my package to the usps and it's been rotting there for the past four days - even though the facility is less than 15 minutes from my work.  Now I'm stuck waiting another week...waiting.   ::)

Thanks to our Target Source, there's news of a $99.99 playset for GI Joe this year.  Check out the front page for the story.  More Joe listings soon hopefully. ;)

Pit Headquarters $99.99 (More Joe news soon hopefully)

I'm drawing a blank if this was a vinty playset.  Seems VERY pricey for Hasbro without diving into a Terrordrome first.  Looking forward to some vinty vehicles, but hopefully without huge neon spring loaded weapons.

I'm assuming, since it's a movie year, it's a movie toy, but I don't follow Joe enough to know.  Sources say it's a movie thing though.

I'm pretty sure Hisstank or one of the Joe sites said this was coming a couple weeks ago, but they didn't have a DPCI to back it up.

Nevertheless, very cool to see... but also a bit of a kick in the nuts to Star Wars fans who want a big badass playset in our toyline too... which could still come, who knows.  I think this sucker might be a determining factor in that actually... even though they're different toy lines.

Yes Tank posted the Pitt a few weeks back with confirmation with the Night Raven - too bad there wasn't more proof from Jesse on that later of the two, or DPCI's for that matter - but I can wait a bit longer.   :)

USPS came through sooner than expected.  Sting Raider - AWESOME!!  Best of 80's is great.  Lovin the chrome CC, he must be my fav out of the 15 or so I own.  Alpine deserves a carded release as does Dusty and Quick Kick.  What's best is that my M.A.S.S. Device is finally complete....sweet.   ;D

Suffice it to say there's a DPCI in for it at Target, I just don't have it in-hand to post, but it's there...  So pretty much consider it confirmed.  ;)  There's other GIJ stuff too, so hopefully I can get that to you soon.

Looks like 2007 wave 4 is being released again. I found a case of them at my local WM, as if they didn't have enough trouble getting rid of them last year.  ::) They were on the new cards, so they weren't old stock.

I saw Destro, Duke (w/bad arms), Roadblock, Storm Shadow, commando Snake Eyes, and Scarlett.
