Scored a Steel Crusher at Target today, on clearance. I didn't get this vehicle last summer, and around September, they disappeared locally. Glad to have it, finally.  :)

Now I just have to find Bench Press, the last wave of ROC Combat Heroes, and the Destro exclusive and I'll be done with ROC.

Great vehicle and driver.  Shame they couldn't have made it a 4-door vehicle though.

Is anybody finding these particular sets of Combat Heroes? I just cannot find these for less than $15 a whack on ebay...

Arctic Snake Eyes/Ice Viper

Duke/Para-Viper

I've scored some of the last waves at Target on clearance, but these two elude me. If you're seeing them in your neck of the woods, could anyone drop me a line please? Thanks.

I haven't seen those in awhile, well to be honest I kind of gave up on anything that wasn't ARAH Combat Hero type stuff, but will keep an eye out.  I was tempted a few times on that Arctic Snake Eyes/Ice Viper set though.

No luck on those in my neighborhood Ben - sorry. 

Anybody know what WM is going to do when all the new product is supposed to be stocked???  They still have tons of old SW/TF/Joe at full price - oh and not to mention a new $9.67ish price I saw today for basic Joe figs at one WM.

I wouldn't count on WM to have these on whatever the street date is for them.  They didn't put out the ROC figures until the film had opened where pretty much every other retailer had beaten the film opening by a couple of weeks.

I guess that may not be true in some WM stores, but was like that in two of them here.  I've read about, and what I've seen seems to back this up, that WM has completely passed on their focus on toys.  Apparently they're no longer focusing on putting TRU out of the toy business and have moved on to focus on other areas like electronics, and taking Best Buy down a notch.

I don't like WM's new price on Joes. Considering they won't reset until almost September, I'll have the first wave of POC stuff from Target and TRU by then.

Anyone have the Cobra Gunship thing?  50% off Bravos at Target here and I've always kinda dug the pilot, but not so much on the vehicle.  I guess HISS is saying that POC Bravos won't be part of the reset in the next week or two at Target.

I picked up the Gunship through BBTS when it was $14. It's OK, nothing spectacular. It's hard to fit figures in the back, there isn't any detailing on the vehicle itself, so it's just a gray ship, and it's pretty small overall. However, the Firefly that comes with it is pretty neat. Kind of like Hasbro does all the time- so-so vehicle, neat driver.

I liked the Gunship better than the Hydra Bomber

I'm waiting on the Gunship to hit at least one more discount at Target, then I'll probably buy it.  I may also pick up a couple more of the fig/vehicle sets that Target has.  After months of only having one or two on the pegs, they uncovered several cases of wave 2, including Snake Armor sets, and put them out at the $6 discount.  I think I'm safe waiting another day or two and getting them for 50% off.

Thanks for the info on the Gunship guys.  I'll wait for the 75% off round to pick that up.  Wasn't there two different colors on the helmet IIRC ?

Snake Armor is in abundance here too.

Same here - even at $5.  I think most folk got their fill back when these were "acidentally" on sale for $6ish or so.

Yes, red and blue.  My store has at least one of each.
