Interesting story about these, sort of...  not really...

but yeah, they're not to be out yet, technically.  There's no place on what ammounts to KM's version of a plan-o-gram called a POP.  As evidenced by them being put out anywhere they can find room (mine were on a temp riser).  KM's just a lot sloppier about sticking to that, and so when a case comes in it goes out.  Found out tonight these were to go out a little later though.

Anyway, if you run into some resistance to getting them brought out to you from the back (if you're going the SKU route) there's a reason for it.  They're even more reluctant than other stores to hit a stock room for someone, trust me.

I drove 30 minutes across town at lunch to the nicest K-Mart around here and they didn't have any of these out anywhere. Nor did they have any Commander Foxes or Republic Dropships. So compared to all of the other K-Marts I have been reading store reports from this weekend, this one apparently just blows.  >:(

Thankfully it just took one trip to K-Mart for me to find these.

Well, I didn't actually find them - I had to go out of the store to look up the UPC on my smart phone (no service inside the store).  Then I had to ask customer service to look it up, this took about 10 minutes start to finish.  Then she told me, "well, we only have 2, and they might be in layaway."  I said they JUST came out - I highly doubt that (plus who the heck puts an action figure on layaway?).  So I  asked if she would page someone to toys, and she did, but it was just the normal guy that works electronics.  He then looked it up on his telzon - and said it would be like finding a needle in a haystack with what they had going on in their back room.  Well, he came out in under 5 minutes with a sealed case in hand!  Win for me!

Yeah, me too...  I was really anxious when I opened my set to swap heads immediately, so I grabbed a random RFT head off my desk and it doesn't fit.  Really disappointed.

The one might fit the other if you hollow it slightly, and vice versa if you fill the ball in a little.  But by my standards of just taking a head and popping it on/off a new body and it fitting and not looking like a giraffe neck or a bobble head/wobbly, it doesn't fit.  :-\

The stupid ball joint on the neck should be standard by now.
