Shipwreck seems to be all I can find at local DGs that actually carry these. Which I don't get; he's far from the worst figure in the wave.

Got this guy over the weekend.  Broke my post 1989 rule, but couldn't pass it up for $75.  Sounds work, but no lights.  Missing just a few minor things - including the General, but that's okay.

Nice find.

Major Storm is the figure that came with the vehicle. He's unremarkable.  I've never owned a complete Major Storm or General.

Major Storm?  Never new.  Hopefully I can find him someday.

Also scored the Hurricane with an unknown pilot with the general.  Yes that missle is limp.  Goofy post 89 vehicles!

Nice score! Always liked that jet, but never got around to getting it. It's really cool in the DIC series, anyway.  :)

Picked up two figures at NYCC last weekend.  An upgrade vintage Cutter figure and GI Joe (Colton) from the Viper Lockdown set.  I was hoping to find GI Jane with him but she wasn't there, either missed her or they offloaded her before I found the bin.  I did see a Bombstrike, though, but passed cause I already have her.  There were some decent prices on loose figures if you spent time to dig around.

The Cutter figure needs a new O-Ring but I'm going to compare him to the one I already have and take the best parts and put together one whole figure.  The fig I aleady have has cracked elbows.  The new fig is pretty clean but I think I'll still sort it out and keep the best parts of the two.

New (to me) stuff from the Club. Got the rest of the Flaming MOTH sets and the Heavy Water membership figure.

Really digging the Jungle Theater set. It features a repainted Night Viper and Frag-Viper, and it's really cool. Wish I'd have bought another set, but shipping from the Club is ridiculous, so I'll just stick with the one.

I don't really follow the club offerings myself due to the price, but nice haul man!

A while back I bought some custom cast BATs from the Black Major.  I put a 2008 Joecon BAT head on the white one and one of the orange ones.

Last time I hit Dollar General about two weeks ago, they had a couple of full sets on the pegs. It looked like the Joes were part of their Christmas toy section. I got my set back in September, but I'm glad to see that they are more widely available. Hopefully the variants/repaints won't start out as hard-to-find as the first wave was.

Nice score Greg!  Ebay?

Yup, got them on ebay. I managed to win the lot with all six for about the same (maybe less) than what the Slaughters and Zaranas would have cost me individually. I already had the Jinx figures from HTS so I'm working to sell off the extra pair to subsidize the purchase. All in all I'm very happy to have all of the SDCC figures... I'm thinking about tracking down the Transformers/Joe crossover sets, but that wouldn't be any time soon.

Also, I had a lot of fun doing this:
