Hey guys I picked up the new Sting Raider at the Toys R Us in Buford/Mall of GA - they had several along with pretty stocked pegs, so if you're looking for some figures you might want to check there!

I'm still hunting down the Kamakura figure and the new UFC Round 5 figures - so if anybody spots either, please let me know!

I had a great night of getting Joes last night. I picked up a 82-87 Vintage collection from a friend in WR for $200. Here is some of what it included:

1) 90 figures from 82-87. Some had paint wear and some were absolutely perfect. I have almost all of the weapons in a huge zip lock bag. I just haven't gone through it completely.

I was surprised when I got home and found the extremely rare Listen N Fun red Tripwire which is in perfect condition. I am pretty sure he includes all weapons as well.

Also included are the 84 Firefly, 2 84 Storm Shadows, and a Perfect 85 Snake Eyes. There are many others but I can't think of all of them right now.


2) Vehicles:

1982 MOBAT, 100% Complete Mint! I think I have 2 Steelers as well.

1982 FLAK, 100% Complete Mint!

1983 Polar Battle Bear, 100% Complete Mint!

1984 Cobra ASP, 100% Complete Mint!

1984 Slugger, 100% Complete Mint! w/ Thunder

1985 Armadillo, 100% Complete Mint!

1985 Tactical Battle Platform, it may be 100% Complete, but if not it is atleast around 90% Complete.

1985 Cobra Ferret ATV, 100% Complete Mint!

1985 Cobra Night Landing, 100% Complete Mint!

1985 Snow Cat, 100% Complete Mint! w/ Frostbite.

1985 Mauler Tank, 100% Complete Mint! w/ Heavy Metal (needs o-ring)

1986 Conquest X-30, 100% Complete Mint! w/ Slipstream

1986 Cobra STUN, 100% Complete Mint! w/ Motor Viper

1986 Tomahawk, 100% Complete Mint! w/ Lift Ticket

1986 Triple T Tank, 100% Complete Mint! w/ Sgt. Slaughter

1986 Cobra Surveillance Port, 100% Complete Mint!

1987 Air Skiff, 100% Complete Mint! w/ Zanzibar

If anybody is interested in any of these. PM me and make me an offer and we will see what we can work out. If there is something that you may need that isn't listed just ask and I may have it.

I also picked up the Ninja Battles set at the WR Wal-Mart for $5 and I grabbed the 25th Croc Master and Bazooka Trooper at the WR TJ Maxx. They had everyone but Wraith.

The last time I was in Kohls they still had the PP Baroness, Crimson Neo Viper, and a few others for 3.29. The clearance isle at WM still had 2 or 3 Ninja battles sets for $5. I bought it for the display and SS. I also picked up one of the Crimson Guard 5 packs at TRU while it is on sale.

If there is anything you are looking for let me know. I will be going around Macon tomorrow morning. I found more of DC wave 11 in Macon and Milledgeville last week, but I still haven't seen the Green Steppenwolf. Also, let me know when you see the Iron Man 2 figs at TRU.

I found some new stuff in Commerce at Walmart tonight. I found series zero of UFC (first time I've seen that stocked in about two months) and was able to get a Royce Gracie!

Also they had a few figures from DCUC wave 12. they had Spectre, Doc Midnite and Superman. I almost got the Spectre since I love the JSA, but then I saw the price.....

$15.50!!!!!!!!!!!

are you kidding me? they just went up $2 and that was less than a month ago and now they're another .50 more. Man, that just...I dunno. I either gotta find a cheaper place to get them or drop the line. I can understand the DC Direct figures being more since they are made in smaller quantities and are sold in comic shops (mainly). Retail figures that are that much are just getting out of my price range. Kinda bummed about it too since I love super heroes.

Every Wal-Mart in Macon and Milledgeville had the new MU SW Comic Packs. I saw at least 7 Hawkeyes and none of them had good paint apps. Ultron looked pretty cool, but I hate Mr. Fantastic, so I left it hanging as well. Ultron would fit in good with some Cobra BATs. He could be a new invention of Dr. Mindbender. I did see some older ROC figures put out and I saw 2 White coat Rex figures at Walgreens, but I'm not paying $11 for it.

wave 10 Forager, Beast Boy, Robotman.

I also saw some of the new DCIH figures:
Hal Jordan x2
Joker x2
TwoFace x2
Robin
Black Canary x2 (she looked like the exact same figure from the first series, just in a new package)

The only figure that was missing from the set was Firestorm.

I still have yet to see Desaad, Copperhead or Mary. Apparently the cases of figures that have been getting stocked (at least the ones I've found), have had the all star re-releases of Supes, Batman and Nightwing instead.
But they've been popping up in a few stores around here so keep looking. You may just find them yet.

Does anyone have any interest in setting up a table with me for Joelanta? I've never been before and thought it would be a great event to go to as well as offload some of my collection. I'm looking at the two set ups on their site (www.joelanta.com). You either get one 6ft table for $60 or three 6ft tables arranged however you like in a 10ftx10ft space for $170 (They show a U shape and you get the extra square footage to stack items). I can easily use more than one table myself but thought there might be some other members who might like the chance to offer up some of their stash. The organizer said they're 75% sold right now and the event is one month away. If you're serious about joining and can make a firm commitment, let me know. I'm more than happy to cover the upfront table fees till we can arrange a way to split/share the costs.

It seems like it...at least for those first wave(s) of figures. I haven't found the city strike duke/snake eyes waves at them before, so they might be stuck in distribution centers and need to clear that stuff out.

That reminds me I need to check & see if there are still any large wing tie fighters on clearance nearby (got one...definitely worth the 75% off discount) and maybe a Rhino or two.

The tj maxx up here restocked 25th figures (a few weeks ago they had 1 artic SE only). Last night they had a firebat, ram cycle, and a sharc. They also restocked some figs but no comic packs or wraiths.

B.A.T.ty,
Read your thread about wraith, I don't know what you need from the 25th line but I have a complete set of wave 1-12 that plus a some extra vehicles and a few other exclusives that I need to unload. PM me with what you need/want and I'll see what I got and maybe we can work something out.

By the way has anyone seen the 7 packs at ROSS, I really need a joe one, condition doesn't matter cause I am going to open it.

cool, you only interested in the clear wraith and the wants in your sig, or do you have a more complete list of things i might be able to trade you as well? I'm not damned determined to keep the wraith or anything like that, but i'm not sure i wanna let it go too quickly. I just love GI Joe don't know much about collecting still learning the ropes, but the nostalgia of the 25th line does mean more to me than individual worth of figs so im not sold either way. But if you're desperately in search of a clear wraith I can promise not to let it go before I talk to you!

PS: last and closest confirmed sightings of the AOCI/DOCI packs at Ross are Birmingham and Chattanooga, I expect will see them and I predict they will ship them at least more than once.

B.A.T.tyBelfry
03-17-2010, 01:02 AM
I am looking for the 7 packs too. I did see the star wars joker squad at Ross and I'm hoping they weren't in the same shipments. We never got the extreme conditions packs on the east coast and it would suck if that were the case with the new ones.


On another subject, did anyone ever find any clear wraiths in the atlanta area other than Bat? I scoured everywhere and only found BATS and paravipers.

I found this wraith just outside of birmingham about a week ago, strangely it was all alone not another 3.75 gi joe fig in the place.

only 25th figs ive found in georgia, including ross tjmaxx and marshals are: TF duke, BAT, croc master, junkyard, crimson twins CP, and the CP with a cobra commander and duke. I did find a cycle/trubble bubble, sharc and firebat as well, but thats it and when i first learned about the discount stores I looked all over the place.

Reposted from the main ross AOCI thread:
Intel for Georgia Ross, some ****head scalper went around cleaning them all out of DOCI, multiple employees at multiple ross stores mentioned that some guy bought them all. Do not buy any DOCI on ebay if you want to exercise your personal power against the hoarder. At this point in time I would rather pay $50 on BBTS than support this ****head's activities, let him eat it in gas as well as in product nobody wants from him. I doubt this was even a tanker, as I see no bragging pictures... Yes, there is a difference between collectors and scalpers, this place is just sales data for some anonymous readers no doubt in my mind. If that guy had been a tanker/collector who was army building or even using them to trade with I would have no problems with them, but most scalpers dont even have love for the brand of toys they're whoring... **** THEM!

B.A.T.tyBelfry
03-17-2010, 09:48 PM
Note: Some rural stores are not getting defense packs at all, so dont think every miss is a conspiracy lol... this old black lady who stocked the day the attack came in i totally believe that she was telling the truth, and is not personally interested in hoarding the DOCI packs. so sadly it looks like a lot of rural ross stores may never see these. this woman said she stocked toys herself, only 2 attacks, one was already sold. oh well, I was worried about extreme conditions but look how cheap they're getting let that be a lesson to you all do NOT support these ****ing scalper ****heads! hold out for BBTS or someone like them to drop prices, they WILL! Just have a little patience! thanks

I kinda thought the same thing when the Ross I went to only had the Defense instead of Assault (which I actually wanted) Hopefully, some tankers were able to pick up the remaining sets before a scalper could pick them up.
I'm not sure how they distribute the cases, but having one product in and not the other seemed peculiar.I personally do not sell itmes on e-bay and I loathe the fact that Hasbro releases online exclusive toys only to release them later at discount stores for scalpers to rack up.

There have been several reports of this, the further away you get from a metro area the more likely it is they only have assault or none at all. Where are you at if you dont mind my asking? I was wanting to troop build I dont have an excess of cobra because I just started collecting only troops ive been able to afford are those on sale crimson guard 5 packs from TRU. I got 2 assault only so far one to open one to keep MISB, i'd gladly trade you ... I'm also looking for a TRU firefly and arctic doc. georgia is about the biggest state east of the mippypippy otherwise id be confident we could meet up some time

+(edit)
PS: Don't take me wrong I don't care if you buy them all as long as you love the brand, as long as you're troop building, enjoying the products... I just hate knowing that some guy is driving all over hell and back in GA JUST to resell these things on ebay. So I've added to my list of things I can NEVER buy on ebay.. arctic doc, firefly TRU, extreme conditions, AOCI/DOCI, ... i'm missing a couple more things in that list.

Brock, I'm working in the dunwoody/sandy springs area (about a mile from the Ross in Dunwoody) and yesterday morning at around 10:00AM the store at Dunwoody had 2 Joe sets , but no Cobra. The other Ross over off Rosswell had 1 or 2 Joe sets, and 3 cobra sets. I bought 1 cobra set and 1 Joe set so when I left they still had some.

Hope this helps in context of the supply in this area.

Whenever I find a hot item I will call Godzilla and ask him if he wants me to get him one, or if he knows if any of his friends need one for sure. Other than that I get some for myself and leave the rest.

I do see the value in trying to thrwart scalpers, but if you don't already have a taker for the item in question it's really not worth picking it up becuase if you don't want it yourself your just going to have to drive back later and return it. And, you could have actually prevented a fellow Tanker from finding it in the mean time.

At least a couple of the WMs in the general area are stocking this stuff. All I've seen lately is the same old tired pegwarmers, but I'm really only hitting the Watson and Eisenhower stores with even moderate regularity.

Yeah, the one here in Byron is a fracking train wreck. Were the Joes on the 'toy aisle', which consisted of half a rack of mostly Chinese knock-offs? Nope. Were they in the other toy overstock, sitting at the top of pretty much every aisle in the store (seriously, every aisle of the store had crappy toys sitting on the top shelf). Nope.

They were lying on a random empty shelf near the front of the store, in amongst the candy / impulse items.

It's off-topic, but I've found myself in the haze of the search for the new iPhone. I've never tried to get this kind of thing at release before (whether it be a phone or gaming system), but we're after this phone. I completely missed the original preorder bit and am now down to buying online and waiting a couple weeks or actively employing all of my toy hunting skills into finding it in a store. Suggestions?
