Picked up a $10 Dragonfly at Marshall's this morning.....not sure why though entirely.   :-\

Received a set of the Target Deluxes and the Sand Serpent this week from someone on Hisstank. It's great to have them, especially since I thought they were lost in limbo.

Congrats Ben!  I haven't been so lucky on Tank with Ross requests.

The Ross by me has 5 Sand Serpents.  I'm happy to pick one up if you need.

No new Sand Serpents, but I found some weird Target exclusives at Ross:  A Jungle Terror Twin Battle Gun with Range Viper, black and red Cobra Flight Pod with Elite Viper, brown Ram Cycle with Sandstorm, and my favorite, the Air Assault Glider with Capt. Ace (really Slipstream).

That's the second wave of those exclusives that got cancelled.

You struck Gold... those were here in D/FW for about an hour.  The Twin Battle gun has a good sized fanbase and the Trouble Bubble does too.

I was just glad to get a Slipstream since I never picked up the Conquest X-30.  He's the only Joe from Utah, you know (which explains the pedophile mustache).

I wish they made him (and Tripwire, for that matter) with removable helmets.  And as a further digression, I wish they made Mainframe/Dataframe with a better head, if not a removable hat thingy or whatever he's wearing.

I have 2 ROSS stores in a short distance from Diane's, so I'll check them for you Paul, if you need those.

I paid about $60 for a set of those exclusives, so you totally found gold. I've seen the Twin Terror Cannon go for $30-35 on ebay.

Absolutely no GIJ's at the ROSS stores here.  Just FYI.  Not much at all in the toy area at either one really.

Found the Lava Pod, Tiger Claw, and Polar Sharc at Ross today.  That store rules.

Nice.  Are there pics of these sets available anywhere that doesn't block you from looking at their stuff unless you're a member?  I'm not familiar with them and was curious what to look for.

Here's the Lava Pod (the vehicle itself is lame but the Volcano Viper is cool):



Here's the Tiger Claw (he's a total parts-mutt, but it's the best Leatherneck they've made so far):



Here is the Polar Sharc with some generic snow guy ("Ice Storm"?) but I am a sucker for snow guys:



There is also a Desert Rockslide with Dusty out there, but I haven't seen one yet:



I think it looks like crap, but I'd get it just to get the web gear for my 25th Dusty and to use the head for customizing the protagonist in my forthcoming photonovel about dirty sanchezes gone awry.

I hate ROSS  >:(

Got a $35 (shippped) Sand Serpent off eBay - still too high, but the deco has really grown on me and I wanted the Viper.  Now to track down a black Hiss and I can bid farewell to ROC.

I think the black HISS is technically a POC vehicle, but I get your drift.

I really liked the look of the Polar Sharc when I saw it at the GI Joe con last year (it was in a display at Hasbro), but after seeing loose shots of it over on the Tank, it's not that impressive.  Ice Storm isn't bad and would fit in with the new Adventure Team figures.

Other than the Volcano Viper, the rest of these kind of suck.  Well, Leatherneck isn't terrible, but I don't think I'm tracking any of these down.

So far I've been lucky, I got hooked up on the RAM and Flight Pod and the former Walmart exclusive Shockwave/Night Viper 2-pack.  I'd still love to snag a $15 VAMP, though.  Actually, at this point I may have to settle for any VAMP I can get since it never hit retail here.

In the GIJ vehicle w/figure line for the movie, was the Lava Pod thing hard to find?  It has a freaky Lava Viper with it...  Saw one this evening and hadn't really seen it before.  There was a Gung Ho with the Quad as well it seemed.  Another thing I don't quite recall.
