That would be pretty funny if they were the same figures.


I picked up a Zombie Viper (my first) at the Middleburg Ht.s Walgreens (Pearl & Bagley) today after work.
I didn't want to pay that much but it's the first one I've seen and I figured I'd better grab one now in case I never see another.
I'm not even sure if I like the figure. I just felt like I was supposed to own it because everyone makes such a big stink over it.

Oh yeah, Gabriel Brothers down the street still had Ripcord and Scarlett if anyone is desperate and has had their shots updated.

My wife just grabbed a Zombie, LifeLine, Airtight and SciFi, she left the Law and Order on the peg which was snapped up the minute she put it back. She said that collector had his eye on all the figs she grabbed, talk about a minute late. Now I'm finally caught up, this has not been an easy wave to find.

Those kind of guys creep me out. They can at least wait until the aisle is clear of people before sweeping up the leftovers in a mad rush :)

I stopped by the Target on Feedwire Road. Survey says...... Renegades SS has come and gone. The toy employee said as soon as they put the case out the white ninja looking guy was plucked off the peg.

They still have Techno Vipers hazard vipers renegades trooper tunnel rat Scarlett and Ripcord. Congrats to whatever Tanker scored the SS Renegades

Checked in a Tri-State Target and Kroger while grocery shopping.

Kroger: Typical Renegades figures and Airtight

Target: Looked like a Renegades episode vomited on the pegs... nothing but Dukes, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commanders, and an occasional Scarlett.

Both of them had Techno-Vipers last week, wish they would have stuck around. :P Tired of this Renegades garbage.

Also, the Target had the new 10.99 pricing... Blasphemy and it's finest...

Wal Mart on Bethel Rd in Columbus FINALLY had some new figures... Must have only been one new case. Saw my first Lifeline and Sci-Fi in the wild. Snagged the Lifeline, but left Sci-Fi.

Felt better about Wal Mart's $6.97 price than shelling out 10.99 each for 2 zombie vipers earlier this week at walgreens.

Honestly, I kind of do want the Renegades Cobra Commander, but with all the peg warming, I think I'll just wait for them to show up at TJ Maxx

Yeah, but the odd thing is, the sale tag says "$7.99, normally $8.99".
Weird that the tag underneath that is for eleven bucks.

I still think (and hope) the inflated price is a glitch in the DPCI system.

For those who stop at Krogers or Kroger Market Place to shop for Joes, they're too raising prices of Joes. I stopped by a Krogers on the way home to pick up some IG's and price went from $6.79 to $7.99! Lucky, i had to haggle with the cashier cause the new price wasn't on the peg yet but it came up when i scan it going through self-check out. Anyway, just waiting on Walmarts to raise their prices next.

This is true. The first item is supposed to be free and any additional at the correct price. I don't recall if that is just for food items or any merchandise. I just can't see it working on furniture or stuff like that.

I feel your pain, but Target doesn't do the greatest job either, where i live and walmart has had the same figures since Jan of this year! but in return the super walmart nearest to me is 25% smaller than a regular super walmart, so because of the lack of space might be the reason of no new Joes yet. But i will have to say this walmart was the first to get the Black Dragon VTOL and the VAMP II in and then finally the Crimson HISS Tank. I thought retail stores try to compete with prices, but so far walmarts is winning, IF the price stays where it is. with TRU @ $9.99 and Target @ $10.99 for a standard figure, who knows whats next.

Good news and bad news. The Walmart on Redbank Road now has 4 pegs for Joes... all empty though. Last time I was there, probably 2 months ago, they had 0 pegs, so things are improving at least

I didn't pay a lot of attention to the price, but I remember one of the tags saying "GI Joe Ripcord", so I'm guessing they are for the 30th.

You're in my area. I go to Red Bank a lot myself.

It's actually where I found POC Wave 3 awhile back and got my first Techno-Viper.

Though last time I was there they had 2 or 4 pegs, can't recall, but had Renegades Scarlett and POC Dusty.

Yeah, the pegs look nice and are generally full, they're just full of sh&#.
The crappy case assortments usually lead to the one or two desirable figures in each case getting picked up by 8:05 am, leaving multiples of repacks and carry forwards to sit there for a few months.

So the Meijer in Indy put out a case of Retaliation figures. I am thinking this was an error on Meijer. I didn't think these were hitting for another month.

I went to a couple Meijer and 1 store didn't have any figures on the pegs. I would think if they had them more Meijer would stock them. Kudos to the guy in Indy.

I might be hitting a few Meijers down south of Dayton after work today, but no promises. I have a feeling if these movie figures have a street date and Meijers put them out before that date, I'm sure this Meijer store will be fined and paying a fee for breaking that street date. A TRU in beavercreek did this with Transformers about 2 years ago and they had to pay a $10,000 fine for breaking that date and thats what the manager told me.

Poopandscoop, congrats. I would love to hear more about this because as of yesterday (and my research) the southern half of ohio didn't have anything. And while I've never tried, I've never heard of any retail store overnighting product to a customer in a state with none of their stores. If that's possible, that opens a lot of doors for states with no Rosses. Any insight would be a great help.

Well I tried doing this when Ross Dress for Less was getting in the 7 pack DOCI and AOCI. I called Ross stores in PA, Texas, Virignia and spoke to several Store Managers at each store telling them my problem with not having a store in Ohio. I asked if I could could send them a Post Office MO and several other payment options.

Each Ross store told me the same thing. If you don't have a Ross store in Ohio We can't and Won't send merchandise by mail. They even went on to say even if I had a Ross store in Dayton and Cincy. The Dayton store had no 7 packs but the Cincy store did. The Store Manager said they still would not ship merchandise out of the store.

So I have contacted the following Meijer stores this morning and spoke with each Store Director:

Beavercreek Store Director: They do not sell cases of action figures and ship overnight.

Newark Store Director: They do not sell cases of action figures and ship overnight

Findlay Store Director: They do not sell cases of action figures and ship overnight

Huber Heights Store Director: They do not sell cases of action figures and ship overnight

Middletown Store Director: They do not sell cases of action figures and ship overnight

Springfield Store Director: They do not sell cases of action figures and ship overnight

What I did find out is that if the Meijer website has action figures they can ship them to a particular store for Free. Then the Customer has to come and purchase them in the store. The Meijer store itself Will Not ship sealed cases of product from the store to a customer. All of the store mangers have said this is company policy.

I just walked into the Meijer by the Dayton Mall the 4-5 pegs WERE full of Gi Joe Retaliation figures. The only ones left were Red Ninja, SS and CC.

There was another guy who got their before me who had about 8-12 in his hand. My son really wanted a Snake Eyes and the guy was cool enough to offer my son the SE. After a few minutes my son found some DC figures and wanted those instead 8(

Columbus discount joes are getting rare with the RoC stockpile dwindling (I'm probably to blame).

I did see a couple at the Tuesday Morning on Bethel (near KMart) last week.

There's also a Tuesday Morning on Mill Run in Hilliard, but I haven't been there in a while and it's a crapshoot what's there.

The TJ Maxx on Henderson has been my go-to place for cheap Joes, their toy department is usually pretty well stocked.

Also keep an eye on the Toys R Us sales. When they do Hasbro buy 2 get one free that's a good deal. Usually comes up every other month or so.

I scored some awesome deals at the Columbus Toy Show... but you're looking at another year until that rolls around again.

Your best bet of getting lots of custom parts quick is probably eBay looking for a loose lot of figures.

I haven't seen anything note worthy in a while. Not really feeling the movie figs, but I will be all over the "Discount Store" Joes when they hit. I want a bunch of that cobra trooper/officer.

Hey all. I Haven't been on the Tank in a long time, but the new movie figs and this crazy-awesome basic series has got me sucked back into finishing my collection.

Which brings me to my question. Has anyone recently seen a ROC Breaker in stores hanging around? Thanks.

Even at the height of ROC, I never saw a Breaker in the wild. Thankfully, I had no interest in him anyway :)

I'm not sure when they are going to hit, as far a I know (from what I've read on line) it will be Dollar General Store. I went in to my local Dollar store last Friday and nothing. They did have some of the Combat Heroes from the movie, and some Marvel Universe figures, but they have no weapons and "looked" different, they looked cheaper. Maybe it's me?

Nope it's not just you who thinks the MU Dollar General figures are cheap. They have no articulation. The knees and elbows don't bend.
Reminds me of the old marvel figures from the 80s with the 3D shields.

Just got done running around Sandusky, Dollar Tree and Big Lots had nothing for the "cheaper" figures. TRU, WM, Meijer had nothing for the movie figs other than empty pegs in prep. But at the Dollar General I found an empty peg for joe figures. Dont know if these were old or possibly newer figures. Price was $3.50, upc 60304, and sku 39710469.

Dont know if this means anything or not, but just throwin it out there.

Don't worry Target will get more in or they have more in the back and the reason i say this, i know SS at two local Targets didnt move very well for Christmas last year, and i have a good feeling SS will be around when the movie figures hit. Actually it would make since to keep the SS around when the new figures hits, so the younger generation can pick up the new stuff and the older can get both new figures and the SS.
