Well i have been to about 5 ROSS stores today and i can officially say that there are no Stinger's to be had anywhere yet so save your gas! For those of you that are looking though LMK if you see the 3.99 Metal Gear Solid figures of Raiden, Naked Snake or Old Snake. All i can find are Vamp and the Boss and i think that is all the stores have at this point.

I hate repackers too often I have been burned by them at stores here in Miami, just when you think you found something good you get wacked by a package full of repacks.

In Southwest Miami there's a re-packaging plague affecting Joes and SW figures alike. It's a costumizer, since the figures return repackaged w/o their best accessories and crappy ROC spring launchers instead. There must also be someone drowning in Alley Vipers, 'cause i've only seen one. I would like at least a second one. I bought 2 JVs, but they look cooler than they actually are. They can't hold their rifles w/both hands and the visor pops off too easily. Laying him down in a sniping position's a pain since the back pack slides out if positioned wrong. I just have them standing up, looking like gothic Wing Gundams (from the Endless Waltz). The Alley Viper, in contrast, is much more practical. If i didn't already have one, i'd be inclined to believe they never existed.

I didn't see it about 2 weeks ago when I was there, or at least I don't remember seeing it if was still there.

Well, I hit up 2 Ross' and found only a couple of the TRU 5 packs. No ROC Alphas, definitely no 25th Wave 5 vehicles.

Big Lots had tons of the G.I.Joe Comic packs for $10. But they're mostly the same ones that TJ Maxx had for $7 last year. A really strange assortment, though.

No new PTE stuff :-(

TRU still didn't get the PoC Exclusives. Thankfully I had a friend pick up a couple for me out of state and bring em when he came to visit. Too bad he misunderstood and bought 2 extra Quick Kicks instead of Spirits, lol. Used a $5 off $25 and bought a couple Jungle Vipers and a Snowjob. Found a Beachhead with his helmet replaced with a piece of black plastic flashing and the bubble taped on. Girl at the service desk didn't understand why that wasn't acceptable to be on the shelf. But at least she was nice about it.

Found one lone Alley Viper at Walmart, but there were 6 CCs. So either someone did a big return of them when they found out they weren't "rare", or I went a day late and missed out on 5 more AVs.

You probley just missed out on the alley vipers. The 3 I found yesterday were all at the same store and the CC's were still there. As well as the fireflies. Funny thing though there was only 1 snow job.

I ripped this from J_Man at JoeCustoms.com...


The entire wave with the discount + shipping was only $4.00 more than it would be in the store. That is worth it to me to avoid the hassle of trying to find them myself. From the looks of it, I might be selling off 2 maybe 3 of the drivers because I really don't like them. That will bring the price down more for me. :) Of course I want to get them in hand before I make that decision.

Thanks for the heads up on this, i think thats what im going to do this time around, no more wasting my gas and putting miles on my truck this time lol

At either the Ross or TJ Maxx (I think it was the later) in Waterford Lakes, by the checkout area, they had two different Joe movie exclusive 4-packs (A desert set and a black suit set) for about the same price (I saw them on clearance at K-Mart for less...if they're still there).

I didn't know what the hell you guys were talking about before in regards to Stingers at Ross. Now I see it is front page news. Wave 5 vehicles (Arctic HISS, Stinger, FLAK/CLAW, Sky Hawk) are being found at Ross for $8.99. Let the hunt begin. I would love to have another Arctic HISS and maybe even another Stinger. The rest I am good on.

nothing yet but as far as i can tell they have hit the midwest (colorado) so far. ross has no rhyme or reason to when they stock new stuff. i learned that from the cobra island 7 pack marathon at the beginning of the year.

No sh!t on the stocking methodology. I didn't find the CI sets for nearly a month after they were said to be hitting. Thankfully a friend in Orlando got me a pair a little before that.

I live in a terrible spot, where there are 2 Ross' 30-45 miles north, and 2 or 3 40-60 miles south, lol. There's no home run, hit-em-all kinda deal, lol. My tires are getting old.

PoC wave 2 vehicles in the house...my house! I got my order yesterday and today from HTS. Just some quick reviews.

Ice Cutter - Has a more of ARAH feel too the design which is a good thing. The flipping tracks are pretty cheesy but I still like them because they remind me of the old He-Man toy. Red and white Snow Serpent makes no sense.... I love him.

AWE Striker - Other than the color, it is no different than the all the rest. But the colors are done well, I like the mud splashes. Night Fox was not as impressive as I expected. He comes with a ton of gear. The cap on a masked face looks ridiculous. The helmet doesn't fit with the night vision goggles down.

Fury - I really like this one. Sure it is a mostly the same as the original. But the colors are great. The extra missile launcher adds to the vehicle and doesn't look ridiculous. Not sure about the new wheels. I kind of like the old ones better but these are okay. Alley Viper is pretty meh. The helmet helps some.

VAMP - This was supposed to be the big hit of the wave. It is and isn't. The bad... The suspension. Great idea that was not executed well. The stupid things are bright red which takes away from the entire look of the vehicle. They hinder the ability of the wheels to roll smoothly. The spring loaded gun, FAIL. I won't even use it. The rear rotating gun mount is flimsy. The good... other than the red, the colors are really, really good. The design and detail is very good. The accessories and weapons are awesome. Love the spare tire just because the other vehicles never have them. The wheels come off easily to conduct that tire change. I think with some slight mods, the suspension problems can be fixed. The rear gun mount is removable and not really needed anyway. Clutch is better than I expected. Ditch the helmet and he is a decent figure.

Of course there were no HISS tanks or Stingers by the time I left. :) But I suspect they have more in the back. The boxes are larger that most of their other stuff so they took up a lot of space which they don't have a lot of. They will fill that space with more I am sure.

More 25th Anniversary stuff, so I am on the Joe hunt again. I hit 3 Ross stores in Tampa / New Tampa but no luck. Looking for one of each of the Wave 5 vehicles.

Hit up the same Ross stores, plus one additional location and came up with (1) Cobra Stinger. The other stores had some new toys, but not the Wave 5 vehicles. Atleast I was able to pick up priority #1 on my list. Perhaps I'll get luck on the Hiss Tank in the next few days.

I went to one today and the only new thing I saw was the FLAK set. Did not get it. I'm just looking for the Stinger and Hiss.

Oh they hit there. A friend of mine lives in that area. He found one smashed up Stinger. The other stores had some remnants of wave 5, but no HISS or Stinger. I also found them in the Ross in Brandon. I went back to that same store the next day to see if they had anymore but they didn't. That could mean they still have some in the stock room to put out. The shelf space they had was limited for those bigger boxes so there could still be some more to put out.

yeah bro, sorry to say but I'm 20-30 minutes north of you and I picked them up on Friday. With most of the releases at Ross, TJMAXX, and Marshalls if you don't get there the day they hit the area, you don't get them. Between the scalpers and collectors in the area, you have got to jump on it as soon as you see it posted and even then it is usually too late. I usually post a message of a find from my phone as I'm leaving the store as to give everyone here a heads up if it hasn't already been posted.

I hope in your case they just haven't put out their stock but to be honest, that area is known to have a bunch of scalpers. I bet that if you don't find them in the store, you will find them being sold at the flee market.

Big score today. A guy in Largo listed a Defiant for sale for $80 on Craigslist. It looked dirty but in good shape otherwise. I went to check it out today. It has a few missing and broken parts as can be expected, but it has a lot of the hard to find parts. It has some yellowing but not terrible. Overall is is really good shape. Best of all, I got him to sell it for only $50. :) Of course, I already have a Defiant. So I am going to clean this one up and decide what to do with it. I might be bringing with me to Mutt Meet.

I hit a Ross in Clearwater today, nothing there at all in terms of wave 5 vehicles.

Bradenton TRU: Is well stocked in Joes, even have quite a few of the good ROC figures out too which are 6.99. POC Figures are 7.49 but they had a nice selection. I got Dusty, Spirit, & Zartan.

WM are not carrying any Joes around here.

Palmer Ranch Target had a few POC figures, mostly Dusty and Snake Eyes, & Destro.

As far as what is still there (Fed Hwy at least): a best buy, an awesome little British food store :D next to the egg n' you diner,
Skyline Chili :D, another marshalls a bit north of all that.

I remember when the TRU had closed. I used to live offa University and Copans. Used to walk to work or bike to work cause it was so close to the house. Michaels next to what was at the time Doris' Market.

As for living there OX, I used to travel up and down 441 often, as well as from wellington, down to Sunrise . I used to go to the TRU in sunrise as well.

Now I had moved from there I'm stuck in noman's land on the outskirts of Ft. Myers. At times I do miss Lauderdale due to the volume of happenings.

RC hobbies is another spot I used to hang out at. there was a marshalls next to it, but it has been quite a long time since i'd been there.

Tate's comics is again a place you guys might like. Tate had tons of joe and tf stuff.

Back before the remodel and addition of the gaming center, He had G1 Transformers in one case, and Joes and Starwars in another two cases... I'd gotten tons of parts from him when they were behind the counter at the old store. I used to help Tate out when he did the sidewalk sales. Tony and Tate were awesome guys when I hung out with them.

THey would know me as the guy with the white Autobot with a dixie horn. hehe.

I will be returning to the states on the 14th. I acquired a lot of Takara while in Japan. I have several doubles. I will be selling these doubles to recoup some money. Locals will have first dibs. I am in the St. Pete/Tampa area. I will most likely have more than this up for sale when I return as I may get more Takara.

Here is what I have for extras *ALL MOC*

As long as I am thinking about it, I might as well put this one out there.

If anyone wants a set of the GIJoe DIC Cartoons (1989-1991) on DVD at Mutt Meet, send me a PM. These things take about an hour to run off just 1 set so I am only bringing what people ask for. Each set is only $10. The videos are pretty good quality for being bootlegs. The discs themselves will be nothing fancy. Just 8 discs with numbers on them.

You found all that stuff just on this trip alone? Is the Japanese GIJoe stuff that easy to come by there? I know you were in Japan but that stuff is is 25 years old, I wouldn't think it would be easy to find. That is quite the haul. If you want to part with any of it, bring it to the meet on Oct 30. :)

I was surprised too believe me. They have huge collectors stores there and yes for some reason Takara was easy to come by in Osaka mainly. Tokyo had a few but I found more in Tokyo last year but I got the Skystriker there this year. I will part with some, yes but mostly doubles and no vehicles, too hard to find them.

I can pay you back in cash or trade if you want to go that route. They are just getting out to retail so it is going to be hard to come by at this point.
