I can't believe you found them still on the shelf somewhere.  I saw them for that price last year at a BL store I stopped in but haven't seen them since.  I thought they probably all sold through.

For that price, it's not actually a terrible deal for the 2 army builder figures.  I think if I found them again for that price I'd probably pick up 2 or 3 packs.

Not a Joe collector, but I saw these at Big Lots the other day and thought I would let you other GI's know.  Only $7 for all three figures.



I never saw these at any discounter. (Big Lots here blows, even...especially the newer, bigger one)

I managed to find one Retaliation HISS at Target for $6. The rest and all the figures are long gone, leaving $4 motorcycle sets that I'm not sure I'd even pay $2 each for.

I snagged another VAMP when they got to $13 but passed on the HISS for $9 and change before they sold out.  Would have snagged one at $6.  I think there are 1 or 2 figures still kicking around my store but haven't seen the motorcycles even though I know they should have some left.

The figures might not totally suck at $3 - $4 as army builders or whatever.  But, yeah, not much use for them.

You mean the motorcycle guys? They were made just to ride the cycle. 5 POA plus knee joints, IIRC. Some folks might want the heads for customs.

If I was still big into GI JOE I might have gotten Firefly one http://www.yojoe.com/action/12/firefly24.shtml

TRU has that weird colored sticker clearance thing going on right now. The green sticker is now 60% off, so I grabbed a Toma/Eaglehawk for $18. Not bad, and kind of makes up for them never stocking any new figures.
