Mod Edit: Post all your ROSS/T.J. Maxx/Marshalls G.I. Joe finds in this thread.

hey guys!

just to let everyone know, i found the cobra legions boxset at ROSS for only $11.99.

http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b53/topnotch97/th_DSC00865.jpg (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b53/topnotch97/DSC00865.jpg)http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b53/topnotch97/th_DSC00866.jpg (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b53/topnotch97/DSC00866.jpg)

i guess this is perfect for those who missed it during the crazy Target clearance, and for those who need some closure for their army building needs. LOL!

i bought 2 boxsets this afternoon. i left a few, coz i only needed 2 sets, so that i can finish up or have reached quota on the other troopers.

if you guys have ROSS near you, i suggest check them out. but also, it's a hit and miss, since i found these guys in one store and none at the 2 other stores. so relax people, it might start to trickle down later.

EDIT: found out JBL posted this one yesterday. no biggie right.

kinda like a closeout store. kinda like Tuesday Morning or TJ Maxx, marshalls, where they still sell sigma 6 toys.

Too bad there aren't any Ross stores in New York because I could still use a cheap Joe 5-pack.

I actually got hooked up the other day with a Cobra Legions 5-pack for $13 at Walmart. An employee gave it to me and said that a scalper had it buried somewhere and that he couldn't wait to see the look on the guys face when he returned to buy it next time.

I thought that was hilarious.

I was able to pick up a couple of the Legions boxset. The toy section is a mess and was only able to find the second set after my brother found a model car that he wanted. There was a Joe set that I left. I didn't see a price on it.

Well the Ross in my area is pretty much the same as the Kohl's and TJ Maxx: As if a giant gorilla violently began to rip apart a section of the store and left opened toys and outrageous prices in its wake.

I've never found anything at Ross other than the remnants of shoplifted toys and useless crap. they don't even restock as much as they seem to just shovel more crap onto the pile for kids to crawl into while their mothers look at discount clothes.

Wow, in the UK we have TK Maxx, I wonder why they felt the need to change a letter...

on a related note the last time I found a GI Joe figure it was there :) (Sigma 6, Lame)

And yes it looks like a violent gorilla has ripped through our stores too!

I hit a TJ Maxx today and the toy aisle was fully stocked and pretty neat looking. They had a bunch of the Sigma 6 stuff that's been at ROSS for the last month. Also found a Spy Troops Crimson Command Chopper for $20! Last time I saw those was a couple of years ago at Roses :)

The only Sigma Six Joes my Ross had was the Snake Eyes with a parachute, another version of Snake Eyes, and one of those sets with the 2 inch figures. . .however, they also had some JLU 3 packs (one with reverse Flash and Justice Lord versions of Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern, and one with the 3 Green Lantern figures)

Thanks for the tip, I found one today.

Budget troop building...always a good thing. As far as the extra Cobra Commander goes, I'm thinking he'll be a custom Red Laser, and Storm Shadow, I'm not sure... I KNOW he's going to be officially repainted eventually as Ninja Viper...just a matter of time...hmm maybe a Kamakura?

Anyone still finding these at Ross? When I initially heard about this, I didn't really check them as Ross wasn't on my usual hunting routes.

Snow Job, Amazon has them both Cobra Legion 15.00 and Joe 5 pack 26.99 I think they are 41.99 total with free shipping if you buy them together. If you scroll down a little bit you will see the option to buy them together. The link is below:

Wal-Marts cost on Joe figures he reported the cost they pay when the price jumped to 6.84 he said it had not changed from the original price they paid from wave 1. I saw he had posted in here and just wanted to know if it went up with wave 7.

Wow.....$3.76 for a Joe. That must be nice!


And yeah, I checked it out. I would get the Cobra Legions, but not the Joe one because it's above retail. I was hoping to pay Ross price of $11 or $12.99. But $15.00 ain't so bad. Thanks for the link, man. :)

The Ross that I found my Legions set a few months back had them again yesterday. I picked up one of the Joes and the Legions set. YMMV as I only went to two stores and found them at the second store, but it looks like they are back. I didn't go to another one today, but I might check it out before the end of the week.

Ross here is a womans clothing shop. when did they start selling toys? Ross (http://www.rossstores.com/) is a discount store like TJ Maxx (http://www.tjmaxx.com/) or Marshalls (http://www.marshallsonline.com/). They sell men's clothing, children's clothing, shoes, items for the home, and yes, toys. Most of the stores' toy departments are small and unorganized, though.

If by "here", you mean the City, then it's just another store that shares the name. The closest Ross stores to NYC are in Jersey (outside Trenton).

I bought a really decent suit bag/carrier at Ross, and I found "Defenders of the Earth" Season 1 for 6 bucks (!), and a cool, old school Chuck Norris movie for 4. But man, the people that shop there are worse than the people that frequent the Wal-Mart, in my experience. Rude, smelly, morbidly obese. Its almost not worth going for that, despite the good deals that you might find. At least those people can't ride around in those motorized carts like those lazy bastards at the Wal-Mart.

Aren't they Toys R Us exclusives.

Yup!
They must have put them on close out or what's we it's called when they divert stock to clearance type stores to recoup from losses.
They must have made/ordered too many of these, which explains why they were free with the TRU exclusive 5 packs in that sale a few weeks ago.
I found the last 2, hardest to get Indy Last Crusade figures at a TJ Max store, which is similar to Ross, after stores stuck with pegs full of Mutt Williams stopped ordering those.
As far as exclusives, last year one of these stores carried the pink Star Wars astromech droid that was a SW Convention exclusive!
I got a 12" Superman FAO exclusive at place called Value City years ago, and saw some Batman Begins WizardWorld exclusives there also!

If only some SDCC exclusives went unsold and found their way there...

No kidding, the TRU a couple of towns over has an endcap 5ft tall and three deep of the 2nd Wave of the SROs. I'm waiting to see if they mark them down before the movieline. I could always use more Iron Grenadiers, the nine I have doesn't cut it, need more.

The nice thing about ROSS is if it has no price they use a SKU book with generalized categories. I used to watch people get items way less than they were because they would take tags off. The nice thing is they put them on the plastic part with the ones I saw so if they would happen to "come off" then you can get them even less. Most associates give the lowest price because they don't care.

Snagged the IG and Air sets, good price. That damn sea command set just doesn't do it for me, even at $8. That Deep Six is just too hideous, and I already pawned off my divers from my opener set anyways in trades, which was fine by me.

Part of me wants 2 divers, but they're not worth $8.

Now, the CG sets? I'll definitely buy at least 1 set, if not 2 at $12. And at least another Greenshirt set too, if I can find them.

I wish they'd done this with the wave 1 5-packs and SRO sets, because I could have used some more troopers and I'd have bought the Nightwatch Troopers at $12. Where'd those guys disappear to, I know TRU didn't sell them all.

That would not surprise me at all. It happened with the Sigma Six 2.5 vehicles. Both the Panther Rail and the Ghostshark were found primarily at Marshalls/TJ Maxx, then a year later or so they hit Ross.

Sometimes close out places are the best for rare stuff. I once saw a shelf full of the KB Exclusive Crimson Command Chopper from Spy Troops at a Roses. (I never saw it at KB :) )

you aren't going to see the older sets. these aren't sets TRU is pulling off shelves and selling to Ross, this is inventory in their distribution centers that are being sold off. all the old sets were shipped to stores, that's why you don't see them popping up at TRU anymore and TRU shelves are clogged with greenshirts, CG's and SRO wave 2. any TRU that still has them simply hasn't sold through them, so there aren't any to sell off to Ross.

It's a $hithole of a bargain store that sells items that either break or fall apart after a few months. The only good thing about them is the toys. When I worked there I scouted that section constantly. Wish I would have know some spanish though so I could yell at the kids.

The prices are $7.99 for 3 packs and $12.99 for 5 packs. And I'm more than willing to bet you won't see any of the old sets. You have a better chance at trading a Black Suit SDCC commander for a Rowdy Roddy Piper. Most of the old sets are long gone.

It's no biggie bra'. They've just been having a pretty good discussion on that other thread. They have showed up in a lot of places. I'm actually going to check again in a half hour. I copped two crimson packs last week. Hope to see some of the greenies. Don't expect wave 1 items though. They are pretty much long gone. Everyone that keeps asking don't hold your breath. The reason we even see these is because of how over stuffed the shelves are with them.

If anyone happens across a Night Watch set for $12 or whatever it is, let me know. I'd love to have a set!

Went to a local Ross and scored 2 CG 5 packs. $2.78 per figure (after tax)?!? Hells yeah I'll take it! Especially for some yummy troop builder goodness :D

I'd love to get more Nightwatch, but no Ross near me. Would like to get another Joe SRO (first one: Hawk/Duke/Grunt) without paying absurd after market prices.
those have gone ski-high, huh? crazy considering those first 3 packs warmed shelves like nobodies business around here, then 1 day they were all gone and the w2 ones appeared...

went to the "crap" stores today looking around and here is what I came up with:
Ross had all 3 of the wave 2 SRO's
TJ Maxx had all the indy toys and DVD packs 1+2
Marshalls had 1 lonely DVD 1 pack
Big Lots had all of the indy toys for $4, and a weird bootleg beast wars megatron
Roses had $5 sega genesis games...still sealed...and bootleg wrestling toys with mismatched parts...seriously, i should have taken a picture...a wrestler with a leftover Paul Stanley of Kiss head...and one that had a white guys body and a black guys head.

I know that last one was irrelevant...but it was hilarious

Oh god the madhouse it will be when someone spots DVD sets 3, 4, and maybe 5 out at these places, lol! All of a sudden everyone who said they'll steer clear of Ross, TJ Maxx, etc. will be beating down the doors:)

I have never seen anything Joe related at either of these stores, though I would love to.

there is no Ross within 3oo miles of here :(

Down here in Houston,theres a Ross every few blocks,and a Marshalls,and a Biglots, and a TJmaxx. Thing is, I dont need/want anymore of the TRU exclusives.

Its stories like this that are going to make that god forsaken store part of my hunting rotation. Stop it!

Well then this is going to put you over the top. Some of my buddies went to the Ross in College Station and said they were pretty much loaded with 5 packs and SRO sets. Will get a chance to look tomorrow hopefully myself.

Tuesday Morning doesn't stock as often as I'd like. Two years ago or so was the last time I saw any Joe stuff there and it was all Sigma Six. a couple of years before that was when I found the BTR Lego Joe sets and the Internet BAT 6 pack.

Big Lots doesn't seem to get many toys until X-mas rolls around

I stopped by Ross earlier in the week and there was nothing, today they had 1 Greemshirt set, 1 CG set and 2 SRO Naval Sets (I grabbed one Naval set)

I was at Downtown Denvers ROSS today and they had several SRO sets, one Iron Grenadier set, several Greenshirt sets, and One Crimson Gaurd set. I was suprised. I check that Ross every time I work and they have nothing. But today I lucked out! Bought one Greenshirt set, the one Crimson Gaurd set, and the one Iron Grenadier set! Needed them all but never wanted to pay the full price at TRU.

They are the same as Ross (Only slightly better) Currently TJ Maxx has the first two DVD sets for $14.99, Marshall's seems to be getting Indy stuff now I saw one store the other day that had a bunch of the vehicles for $9.99

the ROSS in Gulfport had The SRO sea team, and an opened I.G. set (I passed on the I.G.) I picked up a temple of akator, and the large dark knight set for my sons, and TJMAXX had a bunch of Indy 12 inch figures and some vehicles. Sadly no 5 packs. I really want the greenshirts or troopers (Whatever they're called).

TJMAXX did have the first 2 dvd battle packs.

One of my ROSS's finally got some of those TRU exclusive Joes. LOL. Only one location though; weird, anyway they had the Crimson Guard and Firefly vs. G.I. Joe Troopers sets and the Air and Sea SRO 3 packs. I will probably get one of the Air SRO packs; that set is cool with the only decent Wild Bill IMO and a really cool Star Duster. If the G.I. Joe Troopers had fixed TF Duke hands I would probably buy that set too, but they still have the dumb 5 pack Duke hands.

Other than TJ Maxx and Marshall's, what other stores are similar? Cause I would love a cheap set of the Sea and Air SRO packs. Not to mention the 5 packs.

I picked up 2 Greenshits pack and 2 IG packs. Left 1 GS, 1CG, and Joe 3pk. Also, picked up DC universe Hawkman and Lex Lurther 3 pack for fodder. Those where $4.99 each.

Has anyone found anything other than the following at Ross:

-Sea Command
-Air Command
-IG + Destro
-CG 5 pack
-Joe Trooper 5 pack
-DVD Pack 1
-DVD Pack 2

I'm through army building Fireflys and Purple Destros. I'd be ecstatic to find some red ninjas, cobra trooper TRU exclusives, or DVD packs 3 and 4.

One of my ROSS stores actually had 25th silver foil single cards of Duke and Crimson Guards for 7.99 each. LOL. So Weird, they weren't even on pegs; they were just lying around and a bunch of them too. I wonder what else Joe stuff they are going to get.

btw, has anyone noticed Star Trek toys (6 inch, etc.) and Terminator Salvation toys making their way to ROSS shelves?!?!

that's kinda early.

Today on lunch break, I found the Toys R Us Exclusive Crimson Guard 5 packs at a ROSS for 12.99. I did not pick one up since there was a long line and I had to get back to the office. The other day at Marshall's I did find and purchase GI Joe best of 80's set 3,4, and 5.

gunslingercbr
07-16-2009, 04:25 PM
Interesting that they continue to be found. Ross got them in, along with the SRO sets, about two months ago. Marshall's about a month.

if you want to get rid of Quick Kick, I'll take him off your hands.

Yeah, I bought two of those Crimson Guard sets at my local Ross a while ago. I'll have to go back and check it out again. Reminds me of when they were stocking S6 figures a few years back...

Old news. They were found when the SRO packs were there too. Good price on them though. If you can find one without a price tag you can get them for $7.99 sometimes. When something does not have a price or SKU number on it they refer to a SKU book they have at their register. They no longer go look for a similar item.

If anyone finds them try to find one with the bar code and SKU number at the top of the price tag missing. Sometimes kids ravage the package so you can luck out. You'll most likely get them cheaper than they already are. I copped one for $7.99 since they just look up a price in the SKU book they keep at the register. To save time they don't go look anymore.

07-19-2009, 04:17 AM
Wished that was the case but all I could find was one...if there were more...it's behind a pile of other stuff. Also, I wanted out of there... they are having a clearance and the place was probably the most packed I have ever seen it. But I'm cool to find one, wish there were others. I did see the ones at Marshall's as well...mainly the first two Mass Device packs for $14.99.
