I've been waiting for that dude and the new Snow Serpent to hit my local TRU. Though since they have about 20 of their exclusive BBQ's from the launch, it might be a while before I see them.

Picked up a white coat Dr. Lewis and Ripcord in the impact armor today. Thank you, Gordmans. Without them, I'd be choking on nothing but the first two waves.

Finally found w2 of the $9.99 whatever they're called at Target.  Passed on all, but bought both of the black Snake Armor sets.   8)

I've been passing on most of the ROC figures. 

Same here.   :)

I know it will upset some folks that we are getting to ask them, but it is GI Joe Questions time again, as always 1 question (at least) is coming from our dedicated group of Joe Collectors... so send them to me.

I've no clue why some people are upset about us asking Joe questions to Hasbro now....Hello!?  The owner is a Joe collector!   :)  Heck - I'd love to throw some Transformer questions out there from our site since they would answer them free of charge, but no biggie.

I really have no interest in ROC or POC for the most part besides some of the vintage throwbacks that we are thrown here and there.  I suppose the "new" mini-base type sets will arrive when the rest of the WM Hasbro exclusives hit this year - whenever that might be.  Looking forward to the new HISS Tank though.

Just thought I would also post this here.  It is TRU's big book of toys which starts 11/1/09.

As if the TRU exclusive BP wasn't already a good deal, they are gonna go ahead and lower it to $20!

Not sure if this is already common knowledge, so I'm just going to ask here in the forum... if you send this in, I'm sure you can forumulate it better than I am doing.

Hasbro, can you provide some more details on the upcoming HISS tank?  It looks like it is a decent size, and very much a modern version of the old school 80s tank that we all know and love.  Can you provide any new photos of this, and perhaps a comparison of it next to the old mold?

^ If there are already good pics of this available, obviously that's a stupid question to send it... but if there are pics, I can't seem to find any.  Thanks Paul!

Picked up AA SS last night.  Pretty snazzy repaint.  The freaky cashier weirded me out and started asking me all of these movie questions.

I don't like WM.

Alcoholics Anonymous Storm Shadow.  It's a variant, showing his downward spiral after the Joes prevailed, yet again.

Yep.  If JoeDefender.com were up, you would have seen this exclusive GI Joe 2 footage of Storm Shadow's apparent resurrection and descent into alcohol abuse, but since there's no JoeDefender.com homepage yet, I guess I'll just post it here.

And this is how the figure turned out.

Picked up Charbroil and the black coat Doc Lewis at TRU last night. Still no exclusive Bench Press or Snow Serpent at my local one. Though they did have the Storm Shadow from wave 5 on the pegs too. First time I've seen anything from that wave locally.

I've seen the newer version of Storm Shadow in the white outfit with black rectangles at TRU once, with the new style packaging.

Found a couple cases of wave 4 at my local Aldi. $6.99 each. I helped myself to a Para-Viper and Kamakura, finishing wave 4 for me.
