Wandered into Wally yesterday and found one full set of six. Im guessing that will be all my local store gets of these.  :-\

Just bought Yoda on eBay so now watch the floodgates open on these.  ::)

Much appreciated, it's usually me who buys an expensive one so everyone else can get them at regular price.

So far, refreshing all day, I've managed to get a Pre-order in for Lando @ about $18 shipped.  That's it.  It's absurd.

No problem. I too got tired of checking the website or Brickseek so I just bought the one I had to have. If I knew these were getting an online release in the Fall Id have waited.  :-\

Joe Defender / G.I. Joe Retro Line
« on: March 17, 2020, 10:22 AM »
And the news weve all been waiting for, a return of 3.75 Joes.  :)

https://news.hisstank.com/2020/03/15/walmart-computer-listings-for-gijoe-retro-line-include-h-i-s-s-tank-68323

A line of Retro Joes, which I assume to be like the Retro Star Wars and Ghostbusters. Im guessing that means o-ring style, but nothing seems to be confirmed yet. And also likely a Walmart exclusive. The listings mention a HISS Tank, because what is GI Joe without vehicles?  ;) Not really sure who the code names identify, but I think Tarantula is Snake Eyes.

Found one Clone from this wave at a local Target. So close, and yet so far.

I was never too hot on 6 Joes, but Im sure Ill dabble in this line like I do Black Series and Marvel Legends. That Snake Eyes is amazing, but I think the rest look like they belong in the Fortnite line. Hopefully Destro and Storm Shadow look great.

I missed the original release so Im looking forward to this. $150 is a lot of scratch for this, though.

New 6 line called GI Joe Classified. First wave is:
Snake Eyes

Duke

Roadblock

Glad to see Joe coming back, but Im not sold on the 6 scale. Guess Ill wait and see how they look at Toy Fair.

Bought one of these from Kids Warehouse and it arrived today. Took a bit, but the Tank was only like $22 so thats fine.

Sounds like Hasbro has a lead for their GI Joe team, and there's not one but two lines coming from Hasbro for GI Joe. One based on the Snake Eyes movie, and an Evergreen line that I assume means classic designs. It'll be interesting to see what they have at Toy Fair next year...


Some more info on the Evergreen thing:

The Original Trilogy / Re: New versions of OT on Disney+?

It would've been funny if the scene was cut entirely and Jabba's dialogue was changed to "Why are you avoiding me, Solo?" or something. Greedo de-canonized.

Im all for this at this point. This continued re-editing is ridiculous.

A little news about an artist working on new GI Joe package art. Also mentions that Hasbros marketing campaign has already begun, and maybe well see new Joe toys at Toy Fair. The Snake Eyes flick is supposed to drop in October 2020, so I hope we see new stuff in February...
