Stopped by a new Tuesday Morning store in my neighborhood and they had several MARS 3 packs for $7.99 a pop.  I think I got 4 of these sets off HTS uber cheap last year so I didn't bite.  Love these dudes though - best troopers outta ROC IMO.

I was never impressed with this GI Joe line. I just didn't like the way the figures were adapted to represent many of the characters from the movie. They just looked cheap and easily forgettable among the GI Joe universe. The vehicle sets however were interesting and I did pick up a few of those.

That's not Beach Head, it's Sandstorm from the cancelled wave of Target exclusive sets.  He came with the RAM Cycle.  They showed up at Ross stores and may have been in Canada also but not positive on Canada.

To set a link without the long url you use an open brack [ url= then past in your link and close the bracket ].  Then type a word or two to describe the link and put a /url between two brackets [] to finish it.

Also, I should mention that it looks like he isn't complete.  He came with a helmet and some weapons also, although I don't recall exactly what accessories (other than the RAM) without looking them up.

I have three or four of that Sandstorm guy.  He's a total piece of ****; very poorly put together with terrible paint aps on each one I have, and every one I've ever seen in the stores.  I like the Desert Ram Cycle he comes with, though.

Jst saw some of those recently actually...  Nice bike, really cool and loved that as a kid, but the figure did look pretty poopy.
