im going to hit the target in stamford today just to see if anything changes. Also , let me know if you want to combine and get up and order through BBTS together and save on shipping ?? let me know about that , we can rotate wave's or something. What really drives me nuts is BBTS has already shipped my wave 10 and i have not seen one figure from that wave in any retail..

NEW DVD PACKS!!!! Het everyone, this week I am getting a case of the new dvd packs from Diamond distributers tomorrow , the only thing that sucks is that I paid 29.99 each for them, and the case comes with TWO!! of each pack. I would like to get at least 25.00 each and you could come pick them up at my house or I could meet you somewhere. You figure that none of the stores have them ( or will for a while) BBTS is sold out of the serpentor pack for a while, and they are 23.95 plus tax at TRUs. So I need to get rid of the two extra, one serpentor and pyd of darkness dvd packs. ( maybe I could deliver them if you live in Fairfirld or New Haven county. ) Please let me know!

angrypandaink
10-14-2008, 03:13 PM
By the way, I just cannot afford to have 2 of each DVD pack, so I need to unload the extra two and try to recover some of the money, or trade-still lookin for snake eyes black timber, blue wraith, and black shirt flint. Or maybe fand and claw? Need a bunch of them! Thank you-Angry Panda

I just called Alternate Universe, he actually got my case of wave 10 and the DVD case. The DVD case is 119.99 and the DVD battlepack case is 78.99. Yikes, going to have to borrow money from someone. Shouldn't have bought a new bass guitar last week. LOL!!

10-15-2008, 06:36 PM
Well, now I am so angry that I just have to laugh!! I went to pick up my wave 10 case, thank god I opened them to see if I got a blue wraith and the case is of wave 8 and 9. The owner of the comic shop ( cool dude!!) looked in his computer and confirmed that Diamond F#$K$%% up and send an old revision case. No way I am going to buy that case. Also, I opened a nice case ( 4 pcs ) of DVD battle packs to find the old ones ( mass device, revenge) so needless to say no this guy is going to have to fight it out with Diamond Distributers. I am going to get everything from BBTS from now on. I even think I am going to stop going to stores, maybe one day I will happen to see a bunch of eels or something, but I am getting so tired. Almost two years of this S#$#T. Almost ready to give up collecting entirely!

hey like i stated before , if anyone wants to team up and order from BBTS and save on shipping if we order 3 things split the shipping .. i turned my pile of loot on , i ended up spending 20.00 in shipping when all i had to do was pay half of that.. my artic / desert assualt and wave 10 shipped with in a week of each other. oops!!!!

im getting tired of this too.. so im sticking with BBTS and i will pick up random figures when i see them , specially EELS ... every store i went in to yesterday had a ton of the same F-ing wave and nothing is changing. they allocate a certain number of pegs to joe's and if those dont move , there no room to stock the newer items they might have ..BLERG!!!!

10-16-2008, 09:39 AM
I went to F^%^#@$# Walmart in Stratford again this morning, still those two stupid F@#$^&* BBQs! I asked the toy associate when the F@#%$^%$^ joes are, she said that corporate sends the toys, they have no control!!! They only had two vehicles also. Comic packs and dvd packs abound!! Also, there is a separate transformers display the size of my SUV in the middle of an aisle. WTF? Also, they have TONS of NEW indiana jones garbage, WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!No one buys that crap. One day you are going to be in a Walmart, Target, or TRUs in Connecticut, and you will hear an announcement " SECURITY TO TOYS" customer going crazy!!!!!!!!! Where are my wave 10!!!! Maybe I should switch to indiana jones, hulk, ninja turtles, or maybe even brats! They are falling off the pegs!!! I was enjoying the joes but now they are starting to bring me grief!!!

Black shirt Flint sighted at Walmart In Danbury about half an hour ago, 6:00PM. He is on the bottom rung half way back and is the only one. I know a couple of folks are looking so I figured I'd post it up. I was short on cash or I would have grabbed him for ya'll and I almost considered hiding him but hate when others do it so I just couldn't bring myself to. Go quickly though and I bet you score him!!!!

I just emailed BBTS customer service and they consolidated my wave 10 and Extreme Conditions packs.

I would consider a group shipment. Were are you located in CT exactly?

I collect Indy figures. There are still items I want out there now like, Akator playset, Target Streets of Cairo Battle Pack, and need two more German Motorcyclw & trooper.


BTW, if ayone cares the Dayville Target had all of the last Crusade figures.

By the way, the Walmart in Danbury still had flahes, snowjobs, a joe stormshadow, and a stalker. They actually had like 5 pegs full of figures, and figures all over the shelf that had fallen off!!! Crimson guard, spirt, etc. No bats or snow serpents.

AirtightCT
10-17-2008, 07:24 AM
Glad you got it Panda!!! AWESOME! Nothing better then filling that persistent hole in your collection. I figure the best bet is for us Tankers to take care of each other and act as each others watchers. If anybody is looking for anything shout it out and I'll keep an eye out. With our oil billing going up $200 I can't always promise I can pick stuff up for you guys if I see it but I can post right away so you can go grab it. I usually do the run of Danbury TRU, Walmart ,Stop and Shops and Bethel target twice a week.

10-17-2008, 09:36 AM
Dude, I wish I had known. I have actually seen stalker a bunch of times, do me a favor. If you buy him, post it so I do not buy another one, but I have seen him probably 5 or six times in the last two weeks. I have been hitting Walmarts from East Winsor down to Stamford. If I see on I will buy it and you can pick it up at the house, I am in Stratford, or I could mail it but then you would have to pay the shipping ( I cannot imagine it being more than 2 dollars). I will be out and about this weekend, keep an eye out for my posts. New items looking for , I need at least three fangs, 2 blue wraiths, and when wave 11 comes out , like 10 eels!!! I have always loved all the water stuff. Water mocs and sharcs, like 5 each of those!

AirtightCT
10-17-2008, 10:32 AM
KB in the Danbury mall has Stalker so does walmart and maybe ven TRU if I recall. Panda is right, those suckers are getting easier to find. One of the coolest figures in the whole line too!

I live in Hamden, so not too far.

I picked up an extra original Flint on cartoon card @ Cromwell Walmart. They also had a Snake Eyes & Timber, Stalker, a Firefly and a Beachhead. None of which I've seen in a while.

Nothing at Stratford Walmart, Shelton Walmart had an awe striker and leatherneck. Stratford Stop and Shop, joes 4.49 on sale but only SE w/ parka, TF Flint and CC with element. Nothing at Norwalk TRS< or Fairfield and Norwalk Stop and Shops.

i just realized that all my posts are pretty much negative, so I am going to try to post a few happy notes. After all, I did just get black shirt Flint and Armored Cobra Commander in the last 4 weeks. I guess I should just relax because I freaked out about the Target jets and flint and I got both of them. I just need a Blue wraith and I will sleep much better!

I would have to say, after wave 10 I am going to but EVERYTHING from BBTS. I have 10 preorders in for everything wave 11 on, and I will only be going to stores to find extra eels , etc. I have probably wasted hundreds of dollars in gas, time, and arguing with my wife driving all over CT to find nothing. I am very upset over all the vipers and crimson guards I bought off of ebay for 14.00 a piece plus shipping and now they are everywhere. I am sure it will be the same with the eels. In regards to the blue wraith, I find it strange that BBTS has them for only 29.99!! They must know something. And why is the grey one sold out? I have a feeling I will score a few of these from the stores.

AirtightCT
10-19-2008, 07:54 PM
Easy up, Panda. It's all coming. You just need to ride it out. Especially with the network we have here at Hiss tank. You now have eyes all over the state. Save your gas and your nerves. I can't speak for everybody but I promise to shout out whenever I see anything new near me. That way if you have to take a trip you'll know it's a good bet. Give it 60 days and I bet you get a blue Wraith at retail!!! Also, BBTS is still more then you pay at a store and you have to pay shipping as well. It may have taken some time but every piece I've wanted I've gotten eventually. I went crazy to find Barbeque and now I see them all over the place! We just need to be patient and help each other so we can cover as much of the state as possible.
I have Danbury and Bethel covered. As soon as I see stuff I'll let you guys know!

black shirt flint
armored cobra commander

firefly

these 3 figures , ive never ever seen retail.. well let me take that back i picked up 25th firefly and he is being saved but since that day i havent seen him since i want a re-issue so i can open him . i have all of wave 10

angrypandaink
10-20-2008, 09:36 AM
I was wondering, all of my figures except for black shirt flint and armored cc were on 25th silver cards, but I open all my joes and put them in a large glass cabinet and cut out the file cards, so is there any way to tell by looking at the figures or the file cards? If I see black shirt Flints, should I leave them alone and tell you guys, or do you want me to pick them up and you can come to my house in Stratford and pick them up ( I would never ask for anything more than what I paid for them!!!). You guys, please let me know! I want to help out, I know black shirt Flint almost cost me my marriage!!HAHAHAH

So Panda, I saved your marriage? Thats awesome!! from now on please address me as Dr. Phil!!
(GI) I have seen most of those retail and pretty recently. Firefly is the only one I haven't seen single carded. I do see the comic packs and the TRU exclusive packs with the Green shirts pretty regualrly though. If you're just looking for one to play with the comic pack version is top notch and easier to find.
If I see any of them and have the loot I'll grab em otherwise I can let you know where they are and you can go snag em.

Angry Panda, I too have been on my fiancee's nerves since i take her out all over the state, make her walk into walmarts and such, just to walk out dissapointed and drive to another store,....rinse and repeat FOR HOURS... on days when the only thing I have spent is 20 dollars on gas she gets really pissed..

anyways we all need to hook up when the movie comes out, and TF2 and watch it together in one theatre.

going hunting, good luck guys

10-20-2008, 02:05 PM
I have a question for all you guys. How many times does the women drag you around looking for that perfect pair of shoes, the perfect purse to match the shoes, or the elusive little black dress that doesn't quite fit right, so we have to go to 50 different stores so she can try them on, at least when we run into Walmart or Target we hit the toy aisle, curse that there is nothing there, and walk right out. I swear that they look at S$%$T on the hanger for 20 minutes before they try it on! WTF!

(GI)Joe
10-20-2008, 02:23 PM
alrightCT n panda - please keep an eye for the armore cc and black shirt flint .. some one snag em for me i will come pick them up or shoot me an email with some findings - joecob@gmail.com

i work so much and weekends im all over the place i hardly have time to look anywhere for any of them if i do its really only in milford and those stores have been so dead lately it sucks

as for the women dragging you around - dude , i know .. spent the whoollle day at woodbury commons looking for a dress for a wedding in jan. then to drive back ot milford mall to look at more crap then hear about the dress she should have bought when we were at woodbury .. she dosent like my "figurines"

i def. would hook up with who ever to go see the movie .. she wont understand how big of a moment that is for people like us lol

They didn't have anything I wanted so I passed but for four bucks and change you guys might want to check SS+S out. Danbury Mill Plain had TF Duke and Flint, Commando SE, CC with Crystal, Python patrol trooper and a CG.

Just to piss her off, I told my wife that I am going to go to see the G I Joe movie in full costume like all those Star Wars people!! You guys need to all tell your women ( just to get them worked up!) that we are all going to get together and dress up like Joes to see the movie. I still have her going, I told her that I am going to make her go as the Baroness. Anyone have a redheaded girlfriend? HAHAHAHAH

Anyone remember reading in Wizard magazine like 8 years ago that Famke Jansson ( spelling?) was supposed to be the Baroness in the live action G I Joe movie? When I saw Goldeneye like 12 or 15 years ago I thought to myself that she would make a killer Baroness if they ever made a G I Joe movie, but I guess not anymore!

The New DVD packs are on Hasbrotoyshop.com and MDCREW gives you a discount that makes it cheaper than retail + tax, shipped right to your house!

angrypandaink
10-22-2008, 09:37 AM
I have an extra set of both, 25 each if you pick them up at my house. I wish I could let them go for 20 each, but I paid 29.99 plus tax for each because I had to buy a case, I need to recover at least some of my money. I might have someone interested in the Serpentor set, I will know by the weekend.

I cannot believe I just went to the Stratford Walmart, they got in , WAVE 9 case of singles BUT.....They had a fang, awe striker, and firebat. I am such an idiot, I have been looking for these and now they have all three but I have exhausted my funds ( Wife's birthday this weekend!) and I realize that I will have another chance! This was at 12:00 P.M Weds, October 22nd.

Alternate Universe just called, my new case of vehicles is in ( hiss,awe striker,firebat,fang and claw). 91.00 which makes it 22.98 each vs. 15.96 at walmart, but no hunting required. Still, getting joes from Diamond Distributers is a little rich for my blood, I will stick to BBTS from now on. Even with shipping, the case would have only cost me like 79.00 bucks! Also, I know I will be able to get 3 each of the fangs, sharcs, and water mocs. Look how many hisses there are at retail, I went nuts and bought 3 online before they hit the stores and now I feel like an idiot.

Dudes!!! The Stratford Walmart sold that fang, awe striker, and firebat quick!!! I borrowed some money and went back and they were gone today!!! I made friens with a tanker in Roanoke VA ( I lived there for three years and and going to visit on Thanksgivin!!) he said same crap down there, they JUST got the jets at target this month!! When I go down there , I will keep you all in mind, I will have my computer with me so if I see wave 10 and 11 I will probably clean out there Wally's, Targets, amd TRU's and when I come back I will offer them to my fellow tankers for retail, I never want to make money on joes, just trades or what I paid.

Hey Panda, I rarely hit up the Stratford Walmart, I only went when I saw your tips on the vehicles.. I work in Stratford, and commute from the Southington area, so I get to hit up alot of stores on my way.

Do you work in Stratford?? We may work at the same place.... there are several thousand employees where I work... and if you look up at any point in the day in Stratford you can see our products.

I was on vacation this weekend and hit every WalMart and TRU in the state of MA in feels like and had the same expereince as Panada. Not a damn thing. My only thought is that Wave 10/new comic packs/DVD sets just simply haven't hit in this area yet. SS+S being the exception to the rule but even they don't sdeem to be restocking after that fist aberation of Wave 10 last month. I'm hoping that once it breaks then there will be plenty of everything for everybody. Until then I'm just going to relax and wait for it to happen.

So you guys know my wants include DVD packs 3 and 4, comic two packs with Beachhead+Main Frame and SE+Hard Master x2. Single figs I want Croc Master, both variants of Wraith, Airborne, MASK Mat Tracker and 3 or 4 Ninja Vipers. I open em and play with em so Mint MOC isn't really necessary.

Whats up fellas. Its been a minute since my last post. Everything is pretty dry around Farfield and New Haven Counties. Tired of seeing wave 9 and all the revision cases on the pegs. I actually found a hasbro rep at walmart a few weeks ago and was getting at her about wave 10, new dvd packs, small amounts of new vehicles, and new waves of Star Wars figures not being on shelves. She told me she has 13 walmart stores in Ct and most of them dont have any Joes. I find that hard to believe. Then she said that there was no wave 10 in any stores and she was just in back and would have put them out. So basically I asked her if this was a production problem with hasbro and she wouldnt come out and say it but you got the picture Hasbro fucked up. But then again these people dont know shit. It's funny how we know more than these hasbro reps and store employees...LOL

Also, i have two unopenned Mint SDCC Black Suit Cobra Commander direct from Hasbrotoyshop.com for trade. I ordered two blue suits and they sent me two black suits. Basically I'm looking for a one SDCC Blue Suit. The way I see it is that two black suits equal the price of one blue suit. Maybe I'm crazy?

There is a revision case that comes with 7 previous figs and the 1 wave 10 Mutt and Junkyard. We have gotten that here in NY too. I think that is probably what you found.

I would believe that scumbag Hasbro would do something like that! I think they should come out with a case of 7 wild bills and 1 blue wraith! That would be a great way to get rid of all those wild bills!

angrypandaink
11-05-2008, 09:42 AM
WELL I DID IT!!!!!!!! I just ordered the blue wraith from BBTS for 30 dollars. I will still try to get a few retail ( so I can open one!) but I will feel much better if I have that figure. I turned off my pile of loot and had them ship everything ( waves 11 ans 12 ) and I added the clear wraith so I don't have to pay extra shipping. I have lost ebay auctions on the blue wraith 5 times in the last month and the price always goes above 35 or 40 plus 8 dollars shipping. Plus, I make 30 dollars an hour at my job and I am spending too much time hunting ( I go to the Stratford walmart every day!!!). I remember passing on all the black timbers in the beginning and look what happened with that one!

I ordered that case with the extra eel also but I cannot wait so I turned off the pild of loot. By the way, now I have everything and everything I find in the stores is just gravy. I am so not stressed out anymore! I wish I picked up on BBTS sooner!

Went to Kohls to try and pick up a few extra wave 10 figures. Someone said they price match, so I brought my Target $4.99 Gi joe reciept from the other day to give it a shot. After waitng 20 minutes in line they refused to price match. Sweet! $9.99 a figure. Also, I was board in line so I tried peeling off the huge extra strength computer label price tag. I'm pretty good at removing them but let me tell you these were practically welded to the card. Needless to say it got messy. So I passed on em. Just another reason not to waste your time @Kohls.

AirtightCT
11-07-2008, 08:47 PM
It seems like you guys didn't have a great time at Kohl's but I hit the mother load. They had all three new ones so I figured for 12.99 each I might as well pick up a few. I grabbed two SE and Hard Master and a Beahhead Main Frame. Left plenty behind. We get to the register and lo and behold the comic packs were 40% off. My wife had a 20% off coupon and bam I got 3 comic packs for less then twenty bucks. Not sure if the single carded were 40% off but if they were then $5.99 isn't so bad.
Also, a big shout out to Bionic Commando for hooking me up with Croc Master and Wraith. Thanks, man!
After such a dry well it has been a pretty good week.
Now I just need the DVD packs and an Airborne and a Matt Tracker and I'm set until the new year's offerings.
Can't wait for Shockwave, Tunnel Rat and Blow Torch!

I feel you on those retro 12 inch Joes. I think theres 3 or more different 12inch figs coming out in original packaging. I'm pretty sure they are putting out different uniform packs and other accesories to go along with them. Hoping I dont like them so I dont spend anymore money on toys. I rembember playing with my Uncles "O.G." vintage 12 inch Joes, the big ass bases and vehicles as a kid. Very tempting. Heard they were $10 bucks each and a fellow hisstanker scored some at a walmart somewhere. I'll keep my eye out!

Hiss tank gunner - AWESOME fig... wish it was easier to get more

Steeler - No my display steeler.. Nice fig!

Just got in my set of wave 12 from Hst and the three of them were bent in half and the other three were not in the greatest shape. How can you fold it in half and ship it??? I know I'm not the only one who's had this problem. Fellas please check your invoices and match them with your credit card statements b/c I was charged full price on two orders. I used the discount code for both orders, good thing I checked the invoices. Since it showed on their computer they were adjusted. This seems to be a constant problem with them. Sure, you can send your figures back and have them replaced, but who knows when and if they ever will because they don't know if they'll be getting anymore...seriously get it together Hst!

Nothing good mind you, Just a Mutt, Bazooka Trooper and TF Duke, but at least it's trickleing out. No new comic packs except Kohls and no new DVD packs anywhere.
As for my wants I still need an Airborne, Matt Tracker, A few Viper Ninjas, Blow Torch, Wave 8 comic packs with Tunnel Rat and ShockWave and the DVD packs 3,4 and 5 to get Quick kick, Dusty and Alpine. Oh and If I see a Ghost Hawk with Lift Ticket I'll no doubt grab it.

1. The Soft Master...I have training Snake Eyes, Training SS in an upcoming comic pack and The HardMaster. He is the only peice I need to assemble my dojo.
2. A bad ass 25th century retoll of Kwinn the Eskimo
3. Horror Show from the Oktober Guard. I always loved him.
4. Kamakura...need another ninja!!
5. And hey if they can do an Outback as both DTC and 25th anniversary then we can get a modern era Airtight as well!!!

I knew my bait of wave 13 would get a response. I think it is shipping in a month. Good job everyone, keep up the hunt.

Oh and I almost forgot..on and end cap a few aisles away from the Joes there was a butt load of the Ultimate Battlepacks. A little too rich for my blood but I sure do hope they single card that Short Fuze and Cobra Gunner. Waaaaay cool.

Did you see that post about some guy claiming he bought a battle pack and a single and the cashier was so "Dumb" that she rang them both up for 4.99 each. Yeah, I have met some dumb people but that story is a real Whopper!!! Whop, Brom, Bom!

Here's the report from the northern part of the state.

Wal~Mart still showing heavy amounts of MD CC and Wild Bill
At target I've spotted some of the revision cases, but no wave 10, no UBP no newer DVD packs
Kohls continues to be the hot spot for single figs, found all of wave 10 including a variant wraith

Oddly enough, stop and shop continues to be a good place to find figs as well. Last trip to the ones in Windsor and Enfield I was able to grab TF Duke and Mutt.

WTF???? Anyone hear the rumors that the artic hiss and stinger have been canceled? Someone posted that Entertainment earth contacted them and said Hasbro is not making these. I don't believe that. Maybe the artic hiss but they know they will sell the shit out of the stinger! I don't believe it.

Hamden Walmart had tons of mutt and junkyard, there is a case with wave 9 and mutt, also Hamden Toys R Us had wave 10, 4 croc masters, 4 mutts and 1 grey wraith. ALSO, OPTIMUS PRIME RE-ISSUE but 69.99 with DVD and Comic but the packaging looks chessy.

Shelton Walmart has two firebats, like 6 pegs full of figures ( some g i joe stormshadows and mutts, ) and they had two of the vintage 12" re-issue diver dolls but I didn't pick one up. I will wait till I see all three together.

hey sorry i know i have been missing here. i saw the Hardmaster wave of 2 packs at the Waterford WM and the Manchester Kohls.

Nothing yet on the Matt Tracker wave but i know they were found at a target. A friend got them but i have not had a chance to ask which one. saw the Battle packs at most of the targets i went to this week.

I have not seen the Cutter 3 pack but a friend wants it so been looking.

saw the Serpantor and quick kick sets in the Waterbury WM this week too.

I am starting to see F&*Kin* firebats everywhere! I think there is a special case from Hasbro that has firebats and mutt and junkyard in it because I see un equal ratios of those items.

Yeah I'm starting to see Firebats but I still haven't seen a Sharc in retail stores I got mine online.Milford K-Mart had a bunch of Firebats and Awe Strikers.Danbury Walmart had 1 of the incorrect drivers Fang/Claw and 1 Firebat.

Question-Do any of you guys want to sell the unmasked Beachhead head from the new comic pack?I have seen some people complaining they don't like it.I need 1 to make another Cutter custom

I'd trade an unmasked Beachhead for a loose Airborne, Quick Kick, Dusty or Matt Tracker. I mainly bought the pack for Main Frame anyway.
Fantastic custom by the way. Looks awesome!

I think your right about those wave 9 or revision cases with Mutt and Junkyard. There are alot of firebats as well. Early vehicle cases were coming with either one firebat or shrac and the rest were the usual old stuff. So, besides Kohl's and TRU having wave 10 does anyone think we see them hit the shelves in full force for the holiday??? I believe it will still be awhile before we see waves 10-13 on the shelves because hasbro still has a few more revision cases that havent been released yet. The troop builders cases have not been released yet. They should have cobra troopers, red ninja, cobra para-trooper, bazooka trooper, vipers, bats, etc. For some reason I dont think we will really see any other waves in retail until all the revision cases are out???

all i see are revision cases.. hit the kmart by my house on snday and the only decent item was the armored cobra commaned so i picked him up to open and customize ..

the comic beach head is awesome he is just like the original action fig.

Just like the rest of the Ct tankers, I hunt around fairfield/new haven county on the daily and have not seen wave 11-13, comic packs wave 6 plus, Tru SRO wave 2, or Dvd packs 3,4, and Best of 80's at all. I have seen a few Sharcs around but very rare. Got my Sharc from HTS, cuz the few I've seen were sliced from some unskilled employee with a blade. In fact the majority of the newer waves of vehicles packaging have been destroyed by store employees.

Truthfully, I love hunting and get such a natural high when I find that figure or vehicle I'm looking for...but I feel like its just a waste lately b/c Hasbro screwed up. I've been having better luck on line for nearly the same prices or better as retail. I'm just as O.C.D. as the next guy, and need to get my fix. So, fellas instead of stressing out hunting you may need to hit the online retail shops for a while...at least until Hasbro gets it together. I'm sure our girlfriends, wives, children, and family members would appreciate the extra time with us!

The best decision I have EVER made regarding the 25th line was ordering the blue wraith from BBTS for 30 bucks. I need 2 or 3, but at least I have one mint one. I figure any that I find in stores will cost more than 30 bucks because of the time wasted hunting.

angrypandaink
11-24-2008, 01:48 PM
Not to mention that BBTS charges 65.00 for a case of vehicles, Walmart's 15.96 x 4 equals 63.84 plus tax so the only thing you end up paying for is a little shipping. I have been happy not having to hunt, I still have to go look for exclusives but I will wait. The red officers TRU pack used to go for 40 on ebay, now they are falling off the shelves.

How about all the assholes on this site and ebay who bought the Target ultimate battle pack and want to sell all the individual pieces for millions of dollars. Really annoying!!!!!!!!!! I could see 10 bucks a figure but 40 dollars for the mobat or 20 a figure? WTF. How about I sell you all the shopping bags from Walmart I took the figures home in for 20 bucks? Boy, there are sure a lot of nice guys on this site.

I upset a fellow tanker by stating that the new 5 pack Baroness looks like Harry Potter. Oh well, the truth hurts. Look how badass the Baroness-ravage statue is. Every other Baroness sucks ( including the palisades bust, that was horrible!!). Give me a good Baroness for CH$%T sakes!!!!!!!!!!!! Stop make the Baroness look like Harry Potter!!!!

Harry Potter kind of looks cute with boobs lol.The whole point is they want you to keep buying a million Baroness' with each new one slightly improving from the previous one.Thats how they pimp you since they know some collectors would buy every one

so, I'm messing around with customization. Nothing crazy yet. Just swapping heads and accessories and trying to find cool combos for now. What I need to know is if there are any good resources for making customs? Like maybe a noob walk through for disassembleing a figure or a how to site that can give me pointers or a list of tool I'll need. Also, I know many of you customize so if you have any tips on how I can get started that would be so very much appreciated.

Hey guys, this is totally random but I am sick and tired of these assholes who offer unfair trades. Hi, I am an asshole who has a blue wraith variant for trade. The card is bent and my kid spilled juice all over it but other than that I would say it is an AFA -200%. What I want in trade is.
1) USS Flag mint in box AFA 100% or better. AND
2) 25 snake eyes black timber AND
3) 17 yellow stalkers AND
4) 6 sealed cases of wave 17 figures ( from 2010 ) AND
5) 1500 dollars cash

Take a look at todays posts and you will know who I am talking about.

Considering you can get a blue wraith for 30-40 dollars on 3 or 4 different websites, they are not worth trading your firstborn or your soul for, so people need to stop asking!

As a matter of fact, I am going to find as many blue wraiths I can at retail and I am going to offer them to my fellow Connecticut Tankers for what I paid. I have thought about selling joes to cover my cost of collecting but I rather just help people out. WTF? I also have been considering killing the mall whore duchbag. I don't care about joes but he want 70 dollars for a hello kitty stuffed animal my daughter wanted that is 20 dollars at AC Moores arts and crafts. That guy is a piece of human feces.
