With PoC not officially releasing until, what I've heard, fall-ish of this year it seems like theres going to be a whole Spring and Summer with no new Joe's coming out.

What am I supposed to do!?

Depend on the tricklings of Ross, Marshalls, and TJ Maxx. Just navigating through their toy departments is a hunt in itself!

You know I'm starting to believe that this is a conspiracy to get us to buy the Iron Man 2 figures. ;) I bought a bunch, and probably would've bought maybe 2 if there were new Joes on the pegs.

I recently went to a couple of Marshalls and a Kohls... and man... it was a toy wasteland. Not a 25th or POC figure to be found.

Get into some other hobbies..

I am getting back into working on my project car.

Actually it has helped me to realize that other than the sideshow joes... I am done. Probably going to prioritize me collection and get rid of the extras.

2 things, either start working on shelves/display systems if you have not already (this is a good source of fun, time consuming, plus eats up the extra cash if you have it burning a hole in your wallet lol) or pre-order sideshow stuff and get to saving money...cause when they send you the bill...ouch..especially if they hold over the release of one or 2 figures and send them all at once!

There are the new alpha vehicles, Target exclusives, some harder to find ROC figures seem to be popping up. Hopefully TRU will have another exclusive in the late spring.

The solution to the joe drought
1) Ask me out
2) Take me to an expensive restaurant
3) Let me order what I want on the menu
4) The money will disappear

or

Wait for the inevetible chinese contact.

How about this:

1) I ask you out
2) Go to dinner you pick what you want
3) We spend the rest of the week customizing with the money thats left over?

What more could a girl ask for!

Get me a 2,000 dollar Gucci bag and I'll think about it.

When I go on dates. I don't even pour my own drinks. The man does it for me. I also make him cut up my steak and blow on my soup.

I found arctic shipwreck but can never find firefly or arctic doc, did I miss out on firefly TRU exclusive? :( I'm thinking maybe doc hasn't been released yet.

You missed Firefly by a long shot.

Shipwreck and Doc released at the same time.

We could all start work on a 7ft USS Flag custom coffee table playset, taking the USS Flagg 30th salute card to heart as so many already have:

I was wanting to get some resolute stuff, at least one each of every Resolute, but HTS was sold out of everything. Any intel you're willing to share? :D
