God damn it. It looks like Hasbro stepped on their dick again with this GI Joe line. I walked into Target and found the Greatest Battles DVD set on the shelf, meaning that my store completely skipped the wave that must have had the wave 3 Best of the 80's pack with the final piece to the MASS Device that I need.
It's gone from HTS.com (has been for a while), gone from EE, gone from BBTS and going for over $40 on eBay. ****, Hasbro, you stretch a series out over 5 $20 battle packs and then can't see fit to reward your customers by actually releasing the final piece in decent numbers? And then skip to this terrible re-paint set?
I've about ******' had it with Hasbro's ****** distrubution, faulty wave lineups, multipe re-paints and seeming unwillingness to convince stores to support the 25th line.
But I have no doubt that the craptastic movie line will be dripping off ever spare peg in stores come May/June so we can have yet another lot of Duke, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow figures. FYI, Hasbro, there are more than THREE ******* characters in the GI JOE universe.
E... (who now needs the final DVD BP of the 25th line...or at least the final piece of the MASS Device should anyone have an extra)
