yeah man, this wal mart im talking about use to be my GOLDEN go to spot, always had the new waves in but they did a reset in Nov and put out one case of the Zombie/ techno/ renegades wave, and have rearranged ( reset?) the toy section THREE damn times since then and have moved an empty 12 peg area for joes and then not filled it all three times!!
Something is definatly not going well with hasbro, I mean they have always sucked at distrobution but this is the worst ive ever seen it, I still havnt seen any star wasr figures after the TMP wave ANYWHERE.
Ive had to get wave four of gi joe literally one figure at a time from places liek drug stores ect where I wsee you guys are having luck I go check that kind of store and Ive never found more than one wave 4 joe at a time, still need Sci fi Air tight and about a brazillion more zombies, I only have on one now

So the Target I bought the last 3 figures from last week....no grey dot OOS stickers, but they just completely removed all the Joe tags and replaced all the empty pegs with Halo crap.  Sigh.....

After the last reset, my Target had 8 pegs for GI Joe figures.  They were mostly empty, with maybe 1 or 2 Renegades figures like Ripcord and Scarlett, until they got the 1 case of Storm Shadow wave.  That sold and they were down to 3 Scarlett, 2 each Ripcord and Tunnel Rat and a Snake Eyes.  Snake sold and I thought that might generate a restock seeing as how it dropped their figure count below the peg count.

Last night I stopped in and the top 4 pegs had blank tags and were empty and the bottom 4 pegs had all the Joe figs with the $10.99 price tags.  So they reduced the space, didn't restock anything new and are keeping the ridiculous price....a price which was raised AFTER the current figures were put out.  That's like gas station pricing.

$6.97 @ Wal mart

$10.99 @ target
I guess Target knows they bought all the last wave 3 and 4 cases from hasbro and can charge what they want

So looks like a Amazon.com renegades 4pk is coming with the elusive Storm Shadow so I guess I'll finally have a shot at him if the pack surfaces.  Might keep SE and the other ninja too depending on price, but Duke?  blah....

great
we have to get peg warmarific duke and snake eyes to get the super rare not al all purposely under distributed SS.
BAH!
does Wal mart still sell krylon semi gloss white paint for about 97 cents a can?
cause I feel fully justified in shoplifting a retaliation ninja and sacrificing it to the hamfist custom gods over this...

That Duke is a good figure at least.  I'll get at least one of that set for my son.

I might actually order one of these.  The Ninja Viper would be cool and I passed on Duke but have been thining about going back and getting him.  Although, I have SE and SS but I'm thinking I probably wouldn't have any trouble trading at least SS.

Duke isn't a bad figure at all. Depending on price, I think I might get this set. Can't hurt having another Renegades SS around.  :)

Well, Amazon has the Retaliation and Renegades 4-packs in stock but they're a ridiculous $40 each!

Renegades

Retaliation

The Dreadnok and Marauders 7-packs were only $50 for three additional figures and the Resolute packs were the same price.  This hobby is getting way too ******* expensive to be fun anymore.

The Amazon sets are a ripoff. I'll be waiting for a price reduction. $30 would have been perfect, especially when the Retaliation 3-packs are going to sell for $20-$25.

these wont stay that price - no way possible.  I am kind of wondering if these are just being sold through amazon and not really by amazon - though I do see that it does not list any other seller.

The amazon page only allows one to purchase 2 of each set - so either that is all there is, or they are limiting pre-orders - which is something I have never seen amazon do.

Also those pics make me kind of skeptical too that these really are being sold by amazon.  I just dont see amazon using those types of pictures for their listings.

I don't have any answers about the limits, except that I have seen Amazon impose them on their lightning and special deals. I don't think these are pre-orders though, but rather in-stock and ready to ship.

The pictures were uploaded by a user, which is a shame. I really want to see better pics of the figures, so official Hasbro pics would have been appreciated.
