I also bought the TRU 3-packs today.  This was the first time I've seen all three but it still took a while to decide to buy them.  I mainly wanted the gold CG, Grunt and Cobra Commander.  I like the large Cobra sigil on the v1 Cobra Commander and other paint details.  The Duke, Hawk, red CC, CG, Cobra Officer and soldier are ok. 

I also found w7 at Wal-Mart today.  I really like them all.  However, I'm having a harder time liking the Viper then I thought possible.  It has funky wrists, bad ankle articulation, rubbery toes, loose goggles that fall off all the time, a backpack that won't lay flat against the back and a vest that won't stay clasped.  It looks cool standing there but is hard do much with.

On the other hand the Snake Eyes v3 is awesome and 100% perfect.  I wish they could get all the figures to work this well.  Holds weapons well, great articlation, many great accessories.  Awesome.

Spirt, Wild Bill and HISS Driver are also very cool and it's hard to find anything wrong with them.  I'm still not a big fan of the mid-torso look on the Hiss Driver/Flash.

w7 Duke is cool too.  I'm not big on repaints but the flag stand is cool and jetpack works great on the silver Grand Slam.

I only want 3 3/4" if they can make characters from earlier shows too.  Otherwise, I would rather see a scale similar to Diamond/AA or 1992-2000 Playmates because there are too many scales.

Thanks for posting the link.  The Snow Serpent looks awesome.  I hope they pack 2 Bats and 2 Snow Serpents per case.

Is anyone going to the GI Joe Convention in Dallas in June?  I just finished booking my flight, hotel and convention yesterday and I can't wait form June 25th.

So far I haven't purchased the Target exclusives.  I'll probably wait for the June release of the black Hiss and Rip-it.  The silver Grand Slam looks cool and I'll probably cave.  I noticed they retooled the foot pegs on the Hiss and AWE Striker.

That Metroplex KO repaint looks cool. 

I received the Masterpiece Prime a few weeks ago and ever since I've been on a small G1 buying spree.  I started with Fortress Maximus.

I checked the computer today and the Andover, Brooklyn Park and Crystal stores in Minnesota have 3 cases of the vehicles in the backroom.  I only checked one are of the city so maybe other stores have them too.  These aren't street dated.  The 4/13 date is when the aisle gets revised to fit these and other new toys.

I was going to pass on the Ninja set too.  However, after seeing it on the shelf I couldn't resist.  I think the Snake Eyes and Ninja Leader are very cool.  The other 3 Ninjas are a lot like the original release but still cool.  I wouldn't mind having some more of just the Ninja Leader but 3 of the regular Ninjas from the set is enough.

I just ordered MP-4 from tfsource.  I was going to buy this last year when I bought MP-5 but I passed.  Then I started looking again but the prices were going past $400 on ebay and sold out everywhere.  Over the weekend I put in an order for some wave 7 GI Joe at BBTS and I noticed they had some MP-4 coming in soon for $250 plus shipping.  I ended up looking at the tfsource site and they have it for $255.95 shipped.  Still expensive but I had to get this thing.  How much was this when it first was released with the trailer?

I found wave 6 late last night at WM in Brooklyn Park, MN.  The Torpedo figure is awesome.  Definitely one of my favorites.  Now I hope they do a Tripwire just as good as Torpedo and Snow Job.  My three all time favorite Joe figures when I was a kid came as a three pack at JC Penney; Torpedo, Snow Job and Tripwire.

Also, found 6 more Crimson Guards after going to about 4 Target stores.  Found 2 CG/Officer comic pack and 2 Air Troopers at Target too.

Lately, I've been putting the silver emblem Cobra Soldier legs on the Air Trooper and swithing the webbing in order to have some soldiers with red emblems.  This also works very well with the Officer from the comic pack and maybe legions Cobra.  The only difference with the soldier is it has a red neck when done instead of black neck like the one in the Cobra 5-Pack.

Over at someone posted a cool picture of a Wal-Mart endcap full of 25th figures.  Not sure where but I hope many Wal-Marts go this route.

but still a long way from the 80s.

I picked up the GI Joe 5-Pack with new crotch gray Snake Eyes V1 last night at K-Mart in Blaine, MN.  I'm glad I waited to buy this set until now because at least one of the figures was fixed a little.  Someone else also found this set at the Minneapolis KM earlier in the week.  So if anyone needs this set or wave 2 comic packs with fixed Hawk then you may want to stop by a KM.

No silver web gear on the 2 fixed Hawk figures I saw today.

If anyone needs the Dreadnoks, new crotch Hawk or new crotch blue Snake Eyes then stop at K-Mart.  I picked up the Hawk and Dreadnok sets at the Blaine, MN store this evening.  The new crotch Hawk pack and neon Duke pack seem to be 1 per case.  All the others are 2 per case.
