Hmmmm....Exclusive?  Wonder if they'll pull the listing back down again?  I have no clue what happend to the Joe QnA's, but I'd like to know what's up with w5 and I'd like to have them before the line relaunches itself in a year or two.

Wow....This thread sure dried up.  Anyone getting anything else before the movie crap hits or has Toy Fair left a very nasty taste in your mouth?

I tried to buy the Shockwave/Destro comic pack at WM a couple weeks ago, but the $13 price and the ****** Destro made me leave it there. Other than that and the 7-packs, this line is pretty much done for me. I'm unable to bring myself to buy the vehicles I don't yet have, and now that wave 5 of those is back on, I'm torn. I already have all the single-packs I'm looking for, which is good since the local retailers are loving the **** out of that repacked wave 4 these days. I wanted a couple more Eels, but building any kind of army is just too expensive to consider it. The one I have is good enough.

I didn't even bother looking at all the Toy Fair pics. I wrote that line off a long time before I saw anything from it. It's really wretched that Hasbro is going to break up this great 25th Ann. run with that bull****.

I've lost a lot of interest in this line lately... do have some moderate interest on those 7-pks coming out though.  Maybe one Joe set and two Cobras.  Not really sure yet though... and if I see the Stinger in stores ever, I'll get it.  That might be all I really want though... most of this stuff I don't really have room for.

I wish they'd put a Tele-Viper on a single card... that's one figure that I don't have that I want.

I really needed to cut down on the Joe stuff I was buying so the change to the movie line will actually be a good place for me to stop.

If that wave 5 had made it to stores already I probably would have picked up a Stinger and maybe the FLAK set just for old times.  But I'm not going to order it online unless HTS.com sold them individually for a decent price (are they?  Haven't checked).

I actually have some carded figures that I don't really need so I may even sell off a few and keep just the loose that I have open already.  I do still want to get that last DVD set so I can complete the MASS Device, though.

I'm still collecting the 25th stuff I haven't found and the small amount still to come.  I finally found the Water Moccasin at Wal-Mart yesterday.  Still have to find the newest comic packs, new 5-Packs, fixed Vipers, Battle Damaged BATs and then the 7-packs and wave 5 vehicles later this summer.  I'm passing on the movie toys for the most part except for the 25th Motor Viper and a few other figures. 

It's good there is less coming out this year because I have to save for the August Joecon and all the great toys available at the convention.  This year it's going to be expensive with the apparent Red Shadows/Action Force theme.

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)

I'm seeing that Lamest Battles set everywhere too.  Worst set they've made, and an instant shelf warmer.

Ya and the figures don't even match the character artwork on the box.

Lame indeed.....

I can't believe Hasbro saw it fit to release a BP of Valor Vs. Venom **** when that line caused Joe to tank at retail the last time.

Isn't that the Cobra Officer? The Trooper, I believe, doesn't have the silver emblem on the helmet.  ;)

Here is what is interesting, JJ's source usually sends pics of stuff that is "In production" or not yet released.

Does this mean we are going to get SDCC Cobra Commander Again?
