Don't know how many 12" Joe collectors there are here but the GI Joe collectors club just announced their new club give-away figure for 2006 and it looks awesome:

"Foreign Adventurer"

They're also doing a great looking accessory set this year which will run about $25 but if you buy a figure and accessory set it's only running $35.  I'll definitely be ordering up at least one extra figure w/ accessory set.

I just caught wind of this coupon code for HTS: SPRINGNEW. It lasts until March 17th.

It's supposed to be for new accounts, but I just used it for my second purchase with them and it worked.

It's good for 25% off. I got two GI Joe comic packs for less than $23 shipped.

Judging by this thread at TNI it looks like small Joes are going to return to shelves as TRU exclusives.

Clearly, I'll have to find them and buy them to believe it, but hopefully it's true. I wonder why there are no SKUs for comic packs or vehicles. Maybe TRU isn't getting those right now.

Between this, Star Wars, and the upcoming Neo G1 line, I just as well forward my paychecks to Hasbro.  ::)

The Lockdown set was found by a yojoe.com forum member today.  I'm going to check TRU today and I hope they carry the newest the comic packs soon.

I hit the Rt17 Paramus TRU this afternoon after work, and sure enough, DTC stuff on the shelves and pegs!

There were only 2 different items so far, but the stock guy said that they will be resetting the section to accommodate the new line by next week. He said there were going to be new Joes at various price points up to $44.99 or $49.99 (I'm guessing this would be the R.O.C.C.)

DTC B.A.T. Attack:





DTC Night Ops Humvee:




Even though most of the Joe stuff will be items that we already have seen/own, it's still great to see Joe back on retail shelves, especially with the retro packaging :)

The RT4 TRU is in on the game as well!

Besides the BAT Atack and Night Ops Humvees, they also have these guys:

Found the Viper Lockdown set and wave 3 today. The singles rang up for only $5, which was good. They weren't in the system yet, so they got the SKN and plugged that in. If I had known that, I would have bought both Cobra Troopers there.  :)

Found the DTC HISS at TRU today, $16.99. I almost bought it, but that price was just a little too steep.

Finally found the DTC Viper Lock Down 6 pack at a local TRU that is the only thing so far, but it is the first thing everybody else found at their locations.  If I can find Wave 3 at retail, I'll be stoked, I didn't snag it online, so this will be like a fun "hunt"...

I have gone to every TRU in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in the last week and this was the first time I saw anything remotely DTC...I did see a TON of wave 7 "2 packs" if anybody needs them.

The TRU stores I've checked have finally put out the wave 1 figures and the Humvee.
