What's the Convergence?

Anywhooo....Some of the Targets on the East side reset with the TF/Joe endcap. Top shelf or two is devoted to the TFA repaints of Shockwave and Sunstorm...Bottom two are supposed to have the new jets, but there's too much of a glut on the older versions.

The Northtown Target store still has the same 30 Rattlers and Conquests. No new planes have shown up yet.

The few Targets I've seen with the new endcap are FULL of the older jets, but a buddy of mine found the Python Conquest at Oakdale Target minus the pilot. Scum....

Howdy! I'm actually living in Iowa, but I'm originally from NW WI, and I was home for spring break this past week. Anyways, at the Hudson, WI Target there were the new planes (not on the end cap, but in the aisle).
oh yeah, might I add GO PACKERS! :-)

I go to Convergence every year. I know it's not necessarily the coolest thing for my image to admit...but let's face it: I'm posting about action figures on the internet. I'm not the hippest of fellas.

What show are you doing? And, yes, it could be a opportunity to meet face to face. We can talk more about it as we get closer to the 4th of July.

Is anybody considering going to Convergence? That might also be a fun meet up place. I'm actually doing a show there. I know. Weird.

Anybody ever see any "Ghost Hawks" or "Sting Raiders" in a Minnesota store? I'm starting to think they never really existed!

Convergence is a convention that explores the funny side of Sci-fi, superheroes, etc. I'm in a show called "Ka-baam - the Improvised Comic Book". The audience decides the heroes names, then we improvise (on stage) three hero origins and then a team adventure. A comic book artist , Christopher Jones (Batman Strikes, Iron Man) draws the "cover" to the adventure and creates our villain.

Also slated (but not confirmed) to appear is most, if not all, of the original cast of MST3K / Cinematic Titanic. So come for the food, stay for the pie :)

As for sightings, has anybody seen the Best of the 80's DVD pack anywhere on line? Seems that they're not shipping anymore. I wonder if they had a small production run, or if we'll start seeing them in spades at Big Lots. (Is Big Lots still open?)

Fridley Target put out figures from the troop builder case. I noticed Cobra Jet Pack guy,cobra soldier w/ red logo, eel, crimson guard & viper both revisions. No Ninja Viper. The only figure I have not seen in stores.

They also have the new Marvel 3 3/4" figures. Man they look awesome but 7.99 is tough.

Kinda boring at retail right now......not that it will change anytime soon.

I've only seen them at the Woodbury WM and I've seen them there quite a few times since getting my x2 of each. Haven't stopped back by there in awhile though.

I live near there but never see them. I suppose they go fast. I'll have to keep checking in there from time to time.

HTS doesn't even have them listed anymore!

It's been a while since I have been on this site. Been a while since I've had disposable income to buy toys. Tax return season is a good thing. I've been playing catch up. Found Blowtorch, the renamed Skyhawk and Water Mocassin at Burnsville K Mart. Looks like I missed the Dusty DVD pack. I never saw the Quick Kick or Alpine one. I may have to buy from Hasbro's site. I see they have two of the sets there.

Found the Tiger Rat and Python Patrol Conquest at Super Target in Savage today. They had them in the action figure aisle, not on the endcap. There were two of each after I left.

Very good! This will help a lot. I was excited to see the Night Striker until I got home and found splattered white paint all over. At least it came with a lot of parts. The Defiant is just too big. I mean it's awesome, but I'm afraid to touch it because something will break. The Flagg came with many parts but is also missing a lot. I'm sure they won't be easy to trade for either.

This has nothing to do with Joe, but I just got word this morning that Source Comics and Games (Snelling and Larpenteur ) in St. Paul is giving away free tickets to screenings of Transformers 2, Wolverine and Star Trek over the next 3 days for Southdale AMC. T-Formers Tickets available this morning for a screening a 7pm tonight - Wolverine Tickets Tomorrow AM and screening 7pm tomorrow - Trek Tickets on Friday AM for a Screening Saturday Morning at 10 am.

The Super Target in Edina has both the Python Conquest and the Tiger Rat in stock. There was about 4 of each left after I bought my two. Didn't know if anyone wanted one, but just a little heads up. Oh and I bought them around 2:30 today.

I've only seen the repaint jets once at the Oakdale Target. Wish they'd just clearance that damn endcap already and throw something else up.....anyone notice these aren't selling?

Hopefully this thread will get more lively when the movie crap hits.

Finally a sighting worth posting, but it's not Joe related...

For those who collect Transformers, the ROTF stuff is on the shelves as of this morning at the Midway Target in St. Paul. Other Targets I've been in lately have a sign saying the movie toys are coming May 30th.

Anyone still looking for the repaint jets? I picked up one extra of each in WI and would trade or sell to someone local as shipping would be pretty high for someone out of the Cities. PM if interested.

Not a Joe-related sighting, but the TRU in Maplewood had the variant Spiderman and Johnny Storm Marvel Universe figs. They had 1 left of each after I left.

WHERE did you find these gems???? My friend and I used to love going to garage sales to pick up vintage Joes back in the day. But I pretty much gave up on garage sale Joe hunting years ago....like in the mid-90's. Nobody got rid of Joes anymore and with the advent of Ebay, the only toys ever found at garage sales were baby stuff.

great haul man!

Many of the local Barnes and Noble stores show in stock on the 2nd Edition of the Ultimate Guide to GI Joe by Mark Bellomo. I wore out my first edition and I'm running out today to check it out again. I looked it over while I was in Hamilton and it is a big update with a lot of new variations shown.

Stopped by Shoreview Target and everything GI Joe that is not Combat Heroes is on clearance at 30% off. Finally caved and bought the Cobra 5pack and a few extra troopers. That $5 price made it easy.

First Joe purchase in months and it felt kinda good.

They had 1 left. I can pick it up for you tomorrow morning if it's still there. Suprisingly they sold through all of the VvV 5packs prior to the clearance....go figure. I'm sure you'll find one out there somewhere though.

The southern metro Targets (Richfield/Edina/Bloomington) were heavy on the VvV and Resolute, limited on the other ones. I'll keep my eyes open, however.

What I really want to know is this: when are we going to get some info on the Cobra Island multi-packs? Enough waiting already!

06-15-2009, 05:38 PM
checked out the Bloomington Toys R us. They had nothing new but here is what they did have:

FF 5 pack
CG 5 pack x3
Sharc x4
Tan AWE
Hiss Tank x2
Cobra 5 pack #3 x3
Lots of SRO sets
Tons of Resolute 5 packs
wave 3-5 comic packs

Went to the Coon Rapids/Riverdale Target this afternoon and the GI Joe toys weren't on clearance. They did have the reissue 5-Packs but they all had torn and mutilated covers on the boxes.

And on the other end of Coon Rapids, the Northtown Target is a wasteland for Joes and not worth checking.

Foundation
06-22-2009, 03:26 PM
There's a few Targets out there that haven't clearanced yet, but it should be happening anytime now. Scored me some 50% off 5packs the other day to exchange for my 30% off versions. I remember finding 3 or 4 Legions packs for under $5 back when those hit clearance.

spiderpumpkin
06-25-2009, 07:50 PM
Bought the GI Joe, Cobra and Resolute 5-Packs at the Coon Rapids/Riverdale Target this afternoon. They were $12.48 and the boxes are in horrible condition but those go in the garbage anyways. That Resolute BAT is awesome.

Hey fellow MN Tankers, I didn't know if any of you guys are thinking about going out on the 4th for ROC stuff. But I just wanted to let you know that I was at the Bloomington TRU and the store manager did confirm that they did have ROC toys in back and that they will be available when the doors open at 9am. I know I'll be there for some of them at opening. So if any of you do decided to show up then, I hope to meet you. I'll be the asain guy with the shaved or semi shaved head! Love to be able to put some faces to the names on here. Oh and just in case dibs on a Night Raven!! :)

I don't suppose you know if that will be the release date for ALL the TRU's in Minnesota is it? I plan to check Saturday morning at the Blaine/Northtown TRU since I live closest to that one.

I stopped at the Riverdale/Coon Rapids Target at 3:30pm today and they had about a hundred of the movie figures on the pegs. They had the first 3 waves as far as I could tell. I almost bought the only Scarlett/black outfit and Shipwreck they had but I passed. Those two looked very cool. They also had a cool looking Paris Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Also, saw the Cobra Commander and Destro figures. Then they had all the others too but those didn't really impress me that much. The Baroness looked ok but wasn't that cool of a first impression. They are $7.99.

Hey, I went there this morning. Still had a lot of the stuff your photos showed, except for Shipwreck and the two Paris versions of SS and SE. Was Cover Girl there when you saw these? I didn't see her, nor is she shown on any of the figure backs that were still around.


BTW, I bought the only remaining Cobra Commander, Baroness, Scarlett (in high impact suit), Snake Eyes, Breaker, Ripcord, and Heavy Duty... If anything I can see the movie figures still being useable for custom Joes. (ex: Heavy Duty's legs being a good idea maybe for Sgt. Slaughter legs, or Ripcord's power suit maybe could be tweaked to be used for a Sci-Fi)

I didn't see the Covergirl wave there. They had the first 3 waves but only a few of the black suit Scarlett wave. They didn't have the Ice Viper when I was there yesterday. I was very tempted to buy that Scarlett and Shipwreck but I'm going to wait for a sale or clearance. I'm saving up for the 7-Packs and possibly Joecon.

I wasn't really planning on buying much movie stuff myself, but the figures actually are pretty good from what I've bought. They seem to have picked up on a number of the issues people had with the modern Joe stuff with the arms and so on.
Though the hands also seem to be made from a different kind of plastic. For the most part they hold their guns good. Snake Eyes can hold his sword with both hands now too. Though I wish they'd have given him a scabbard on his back for his sword instead of just a very crappy slit on his sash.

I noticed a lack of Ice Vipers myself along with Cover Girl. Maybe someone hit the stuff before either of us got there?

I hope we get the 7-packs of the modern line soon to get it over with (the ebay scalping from overseas crap). Heck, I still need to hold onto money for a number of SDCC exclusives I hope to get. (Online means sadly, not going to SDCC) The Wonder Twins 2-pack for DCUC and all the sets of Marvel Minimates...dang it... My wallet thought it had a break. LOL

Well, I went to the Northtown/Blaine TRU this morning.

TRU here had two small rows of figures, most of the ones I saw at my local Target a day ago on one (though I did score a Shipwreck) and the TRU Firefly and BBQ on the other. They also had all the Combat Heroes, 4 PITTs (Holy crap they're huge), 2 Night Ravens (I bought one), one of each of the Alpha size vehicles, the 12 inch SE and SS, ATVs, SE role play, and a few other things.

Still looking for the Cobra Gunship and Steel Crusher as well as Cover Girl, Sgt. Stone, and the Heavy Duty in black combat suit. Oh, and if any of the Wal-Marts get the 2-packs in....given the Wal-Marts around here and their track records for exclusives. >_<

Man, I was initially against buying much ROC stuff, but it's all really good stuff.

Andover and Coon Rapids/Riverdale Targets had G.I.Joe end displays in the toy section loaded with stuff, though Andover Target had three endcaps of stuff while Coon Rapids had 2.

Got me Cover Girl, Heavy Duty in black outfit, Sgt. Stone and the Ice Dagger and Cobra Hummer (can't recall the name right now)

The Ice Dagger is kinda like a pumped up Snow Cat in a way and can hold up to five figures. Two in the front cockpit area, one on the gunner seat above, one is the pop-up missle/gunner seat, and one in a back compartment.

Anyone seen Agent Helix or a Hawk yet?

07-06-2009, 09:13 PM
yeah I picked up Helix, Flash, Lt. Stone. Hawk and the PIT Commando at the Burnsville Super Target this morning. They had at least 20 Lt. Stones, 2 or 3 Helix and Flash's left. I picked up the only Hawk and Pit Commando they had. Well at least the only one's I saw when I was there. they might have put some more out.

Spider, I didn't see anything at Big Lots unfortunately.


Also, MN'ers, *WARNING* - There's a repacker in the greater Mpls Metro area. Someone swapped an "old" viper for a "chrome face" viper in a cobra 5 pack and swapped out a Resolute pack and replaced all the figures. I hope it isn't someone from here.

I know it wasn't me C.I.A.D. I opened both of those packs I bought and have them displayed.

Didn't know if any of you are interested in the ROC CC, but the downtown Target had about 5 or 6 of them there this afternoon around 12:30

07-10-2009, 11:25 AM
Anyone need the ROC Cover Girl, Shipwreck, or Sgt. Stone, Andover Target has a few of each.

I just need an Agent Helix, Pit Commando, and single pack Hawk and I think I'm good for now... None of the Targets around me seem to have them though.

Thanks for the help. Can always use it in searches for stuff. I'm guessing the figures will be more abundant as the weeks go along, but with troop builders, who knows... I'm debating actually if I want to get a few of the PIT commandos now or not and wait with the mentions of green camo Joes down the line.

What I really hate is the exclusives... Wal-Marts around me I can probably guarantee won't get the ROC 2-packs since they haven't gotten any exclusives of note since the Giant Man wave of Marvel Legends and 2-packs a while back.
I know they had nothing ROC related or Joe related at all this morning at the Coon Rapids/Riverdale Wal-Mart.

What's up with those price tags? Targets are all at $6.99 in my area (thankfully) Doesn't look like WM's have lifted a single finger on any of the ROC stuff. Wasn't planning on buying anything from this line, but it all looks really really great. Might be tempted to go out this weekend for the TRU 2 for $10 sale.

TRU - Bloomington:

4 Pegs of RoC Figures...but none to call home over. Your typical Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow/Baroness, etc. Couple of Exclusive Barbecue figs.

1st Wave of RoC Vehicles (No red helmet Firefly/dropships...all had black helmets).

Older Joe Stuff - Last few waves of Comic Packs, Resolute/Cobra 5 packs, Leatherneck with AWE Striker, SRO packs (wave 2).

Again, nothing to write home over.

This TRU is apparently re-setting/stocking on Wednesday. Will go back and check then.


Conquest (I hope I heard that right!), it was a pleasure meeting you, man! We'll have to co-ordinate a hunt some time soon. Have to find both MST & myself some Pit Commando figs! :D I didn't go to that other TRU. Got disgruntled and turned around on black dog road (?)

Has anyone been able to find SUMMER?!?!?!?!

WTF is up with Juloctober? I'm FREEZING MY ASS OFF PEOPLE.

52 Degrees? SRLSY?

Ha - been great for those of us that work outside! Plus a lot people in the Cities pay for these kind of temps in July staying up on the North Shore.

Back on topic - Maplewood TRU has about 12 pegs in front, no singles in the Joe aisle. Accelerator suit Ripcord was probably the only "HTF" fig. At $5 i'll bite on these wasn't planning on much ROC stuff. Bought Shipwreck 1st week of July and this TRU gave me the price adjustment to 2 for 9.99 if I bought 1 extra today to make an odd number.

Anybody try the local Targets yet for either a price match or adjustment on what you already bought??

On the road for work this Wed, should be able to stop at 3-4 TRUs, will keep an eye out for Pit Commando and Helix.

I'm still not sure which stores that works at and/or how it's even done, but my plan is just to stock up on $4.99 TRU figs and return them to Target when I find newer stuff there at $6.99-$7.99. That's if I decide to bite on more stuff. Only got SE, Stormshadow, and the 2 TRU exclusives so far.

Works at ALL Targets, was just a test policy at the downtown Mpls location for a while. I got some of my prices adjusted at the Hudson Target today. There is a color instruction sheet with pictures at customer service but it still took 2 managers and 3 employees to get my refund, and then only on stuff bought within the past ten days. The others I just stopped in to TRU for some extra $5 figs and then returned at the nearest Target so both ways work. At $5 I have bought a few more ROC figs than I would have otherwise. Desert Ambush Scarlett and Ice Viper seem to be the ones I have seen the least of.

Both TRUs I stopped in had the big front end display up, but nothing new for figs really. No sign of Helix or Pitt Commando.

Grabbed an extra PP SE if anyone’s interested.

Ok, I headed out to stores today, in particular, TRU for the G.I.Joe sale that is supposed to be going on, as well as the newest TRU exclusive wave of Marvel Minimates (Must find Bullseye/Moonstone 2-pack)

Northtown TRU had carts full of cardboard out so I thought maybe things would be in full force there. The G.I.Joe setup display in the front was up...but hardly anything was on display, and what was, I already had or didn't want. Either they haven't gotten a lot of Joes in yet, or some people did some major clean-up on the shelves, but anyway...nothing was bought there.
They had Ghostbusters and the new Battlestar Galactica Minimates, but no Marvel Minimates either and the movie Joes are all removed from the aisle they were in for the big display. So essentially a wasted trip over there today... Why have a sale going when you hardly have any product I don't understand, but anyway...

On a whim, driving back home I stopped at the Coon Rapids Target and... I found 1 Helix, 1 Pit Commando, 1 Elite Viper, 1 Flash, and I Eel. I bought all but the Eel. So in the end I got something, but would have been nice to have gotten them on the TRU sale...which oddly on the display wasn't even advertised.

Anyway, it seems the Helix wave is trickling out now to other stores...just still very slowly.

I ended up trading for my Helix & 2 Pit Commandos (still inbound). A good bud of mine lives down in AZ and the closest TRU is a 2 hour drive...so we swapped TRU exclusives for'em :D

You have NO IDEA how hard it is to track down WM exclusives out here, but luckily my Star Wars buds are usually able to keep an eye out all around the metro - providing a store actually has received said product. I've also heard on a few sites before that BBTS *might* have something to do with it, but I'm not certain.

Wal-Marts are EVIL around Minnesota indeed.

They got the Giant Man wave of Marvel Legends as well as the first wave of face-offs back in the day when Toy Biz still ran that show, but I have yet to see any of the other big WM exclusive things....

Halo
DC Universe wave 5
Marvel Legends 'Ares' or 'Nemesis' waves
Masterpiece Starscream

The list goes on and on...and it bugs me to know ANOTHER DC universe wave will be exclusive to them jerks.

The two closest Wal-Marts to me shrunk their toy aisles to practically nothing, so I know even more so I won't be getting anythign in that relation outside of 'evilBay'.

Same will probably go for the G.I.Joe 2-packs... >_< I really only want Monkeywrench though to be honest.

I’m all for a network, and have no problem picking up things. Put ‘em on your credit card and just return before payment is due if swap doesn’t work out. Funds go right back on your card, nothing spent, nothing lost.

I’ll lead by example but I’m a little behind, I’ve got Helix and Hawk but looks like people got them already. Only found 2 Pit Commados so far, one of each style that I’m keeping but will keep an eye out. I’m kind of done with ROC for what’s out now but could use some help with the Marvel Universe and Legends coming out. I don’t collect TF or Star Wars but would be happy to look for those as well.

Would be nice to have a central spot to “write things down” kind of like an FTP site so people could enter what they want and enter stuff when they pick up for others. That would help avoid 3 or 4 people picking up the same thing for one guy. A limited access thread or page the group could access and edit would work.

Maybe if we knew a moderator or administrator they could set something up here on the Tank…………

Hey guys,

Kinda new here, I'm not a hard core GI Joe collector(I collect mainly TFs), but I just like to collect my childhood favorites. I've been looking for a PP SE w/ black timber but have only found the grey timber. Anyone still see this guy around or am I too late. Black timber just look a little cooler I think. Maybe I'll collect more after I see the movie.

As for sightings: I'm starting to see more and more of Helix around, usu at Targets, a couple in Roseville and 4 I think in Edina I saw last night. Saw a couple PP SE w/ grey timber, but no black.

It seems the GI JOE crop has dried out in the Metro area. The 2011 POC waves are showing up in other states but not here. well I did find a Skydive at a Target once...But nothing since.

Why have so many Walmarts around here stopped carrying GI JOE toys altogether? IS it because of the movie crap? It sucks because not many stores carry GI JOE anymore so the hunt has become depressing. I'm still looking for a Low Light and don't want to pay the outrageous prices people are charging for him on the internet. I wish Hasbro would step up the ratio on the figures they produce and quit making certain figures in lesser quantities because I don't want to missout on the upcoming Sci Fi figure.... he's one of my favorites!

I stopped in Buffalo MN yesterday because I noticed about 3 weeks ago that they had pegs for Joes but zero product. They've been in the process of reorganizing the toy section so the first week I stopped the layout sheets were taped up all over. But for 3 weeks...no Joes. I drive through there on my route twice a week so I was stopping each time....Last Friday I chose not to because I figured that there still wouldn't be anything and now I'm regretting that a little. Because today when I stopped there was 2 Blowtorches and 1 City Strike Cobra Commander. I snapped up 1 of each and decided to stop at the Maple Grove WM on my way through because they too have had the figureless pegs for the last few weeks and sure enough there was Blowtorch on CC again....BUt no other figures at either location. I have a feeling that had I stopped last Friday I might've had the chance to score a few more characters from the latest waves from this year. Maybe.

On top of my findings my buddy who lives in AZ has been picking me up stuff at the ROSS stores. The cancelled Target exclusive stuff like a few Flight Pods, Desert Rams, Sand Serpents, and Cobra Whirlwinds. The GI JOE ATV w/ Leatherneck, and a few Cobra Fury's, HISS Tanks, and VAMPs.

You lucky bastard! I have no Ross access.

Rochester Target and TRU are stocking Skystrikers and TJMaxx has a pretty nice refreshed mix of Joes. Mechs and ROC figs in abundance with miscellaneous others sprinkled in.

Having a hell of a time finding stores that even carry Joes anymore or even bother to restock.ugh...making my head hurt actually.Albert Lea,Austin,Owatonna Walmarts dont carry em'.Austin Target as well as Owatonna's does but the lone Renegade Cobra Commander hangs on for dear life in Austin-SMH!!!Went to Roch and nothing goin on there.looks like their Walmarts clearanced out the Joes and dont plan on carrying them at least til the movie nears.Preordering from BBTS or buying them off Ebay seem to be the only ways to get the latest waves.Pretty damn depressing i say!!!

I saw that guy and considered responding to him, until I saw him list some figures at $10 each, then list some of the same figures at $35 each...So...whatever to that.

Anyway, I posted this in the Ice Viper brigade, but it is of interest to those of you looking around;

"For those of you still looking, I'd suggest hitting/asking around at Walgreens and CVS stores. That's where I got my renegades SS a couple weeks ago, and a few other figures I couldn't find. They only have one peg, and seem to only put 2-3 figures out at a time, so you may have to ask if they have more. Only downside to these places is that Joes tend to cost anywhere from $10.99 to $11.99..."

Been to the DG in Wells and they didnt have nothin.Also visited the DG's in Mason City and Clear Lake,Iowa and nada.theres another one not too far from me that imma try to hit up this weekend.but after all is said and done i might as well buy them from somebody online after all the gas and time is spent.

Also Austin's Target tonight had the Retaliation figures and vehicles out.Not as bad as i thought they would be once i had them in hand.didnt purchase any tho cuhz i figured id see them everywhere this weekend but that might not be the case at all...

Being that later on i noticed that the Albert Lea Walmart was resetting their so called "action figure" aisle and they are NOT going to be carrying the GI Joe Retaliation line at all!?!Will these only be available at Target and TRU?Or is my Walmart that F%^d up!?

Hey bruh, I just got home from Roch.I was itching to do something so I decided to go hunting last minute.did stop at the TRU.Obviously you got all the good stuff lol and during there BOGO-AWESOME!!! Did you notice that that the 30th/Renegades assortment was indeed the Storm Shadow case!? Read that one of the board members on TFW2005 snatched it up over the weekend!

Anyway Target South has the 1st wave out including all army builders(Cobra Trooper, Red Ninja, Gi Joe Trooper).Target North actually had quite a bit out.A couple if not few of each army builder were on the pegs when I left there.

Walmart North just sucks anymore! Can't believe I ever found anything there but thats where I found the POC Hawk wave last year.

Walmart South was actually in the process of resetting their toy aisle when I got there.Looks like both sides of the aisle will still be filled with plastic crack goodness.and they will be carrying the Retaliation line!I did snatch up a voyager StarScream that they just put out.made my day even though I was hoping to find ML Movie Avengers etc...oh well.maybe when their done with the reset huh :)

Good to know I should check Target. I'm guessing the guy who got Reny SS bought up the Red Ninjas and Joe Troops. I'd like to find a couple of those.

I've actually had much better luck at Walmart North than at South. They seem to always have more out on the pegs.

Burnsville TRU had the Fangboat a blacked out Sting Raider, with the addition of a gaudy missile launcher. The fangboat's new missile launcher has a big nuclear symbol on it, giving it a vague eco-warriors vibe. Both stores had Dragonflys, but only Burnsville had Crimson HISS tank.

Some assembly sounds cool! Wish I could make it.

I don't think people really use this thread any more; mostly folks seem to be using the private MN group. Also, there is very little to actually "sight" lately. I would still love to see any of wave 3.5 ANYWHERE. I still check Walgreenses whenever I can. Have thus far seen no sign.

I know "this line is dead" gets thrown around a lot. But for NOW, yeah....it's pretty damn dead. I can't imagine how Hasbro is going to drum up enthusiasm for the big anniversary next year. Hasbro is already selling 30th anniversary Transformers. I kind of doubt they even have a plan.

I am glad you're still enthusiastic about new Joes. To ME, Joe is like an abusive spouse you keep going back to because "he says it will be different this time!" I have become pretty bored with all the empty promises.
