Hmm.. Plano yesterday morning.. notified at 1:59 A.M. today....

Yep there all gone.. or at least the good ones, I am willing to bet there are plenty of CC, Roadblock and possibly Baroness. The PP officers are gone, as well as Major Bludd, TF Flint. there may be a few Arctic SE. LOL

Thankfully I have been lucky on scoring all of them already, plus Plano is a far drive for me. About an hour out.

Although I am looking for one more CP Red Star and Duke. So if anyone spots one and you don't need it, I'm willing to reimburse you or something for the trouble. *Hint Hint* LOL

Actually should have them at the local Wal Mart this Mon. I love bing in a central Hub of 5 Wal Mart Stores and knowing the Toy dept. Managers. ; )

Hey, you never know. They could all still be there. I put out 4 cases of Wave 7 a couple weeks ago, and I come in a couple days later and most of, if not all of them, are still there.

But you scored them all already, so it's all good! :)

I am still looking for the new comic packs, myself. Haven't seen them yet.

06-06-2008, 03:22 AM
I can keep my eyes out for a set if you would like? There aren't really a lot of collectors out in my part of the woods and as a favor the Dept. managers order them even if there are a ton of peg warmers. Kinda like they did for the wave 4 CP's.

there pegs are full of Cp 1-3, yet still she ordered. LOL

Why is it some stores are really good, and some stores just flat out suck? I went to one store and they literally needed two more pegs to hold all the wave 8 figures. It has always been good to me. There is another one like that where I do pretty good; not that good, but it's pretty reliable on certain days. The rest of them pretty much stink when it comes to keeping any sort of stock. One store has had the same beat up CC on the peg since Christmas, and really that's about the only one I ever see there. Target near me has had empty pegs for three weeks, ever since I bought the last figure that occupied any space reserved for GI Joe there. I have not seen a single Spirit on a peg at any stores.

Yup, once again i checked my nearest Target, and once again, did not see any Clearance aisle. I checked everywhere too. I still have yet to see this "clearance aisle" in any Target store. :(

Well...I've been all around Austin hunting both G.I. Joe and the Transformers Animated stuff. Here be my findings:

Wal-Mart in Round Rock - Nada except for the first wave or two of the comic packs.

Wal-Mart on IH 35 and Parmer - Wave 8, lots of it. Had an additional two Major Bludd's besides the one I nabbed (finally!) and all of the other guys as well.

H.E.B. Cedar Park - Wave 7: Spirit, Duke w/ Jet pack, Viper

Wal-Mart 620 - Wave 8 - everyone but Arctic Snake Eyes and Bludd, multiple copies of the rest.

Wal-Mart 620 N - Waves 2, 3, 4 and comic packs galore...Nothing new because no one is buying these things.

Wal-Mart Cedar Park - Wave 5 revision: Crimson Guards, Armored CC, Torpedo, Rock & Roll, Cobra Trooper, & Iron Grenadiers Destro.

If anyone happens upon a Transformers Animated Grimlock...I'd be much obliged if you'd let me know.

Hope all of this helps, guys!

College Station Toys R Us got in 2 single pack revision cases which included Vipers, Firefly, Zartan, Lady Jaye, Spirit, wave 5 Snake Eyes, and wave 4 Cobra Commander. Also got 2 cases in of the exclusive battle packs (4 Cobra Night Watch and 4 Snake Eyes vs Red Ninjas).

College Station Walmart has a couple sets of wave 8 singles as well.

I have still yet to spot any wave 4 comic packs.

Some friend.. I mean really, who gets married the weekend of Joe Con. The nerve of some people. LOL

Well some of us have to make the sacrifice. if we didn't then I guess we couldn't be called friends. We'll make sure and let you know all of the things you missed. Especially the rubbing in things like, "Guess what we saw and you didn't cause you had to go to a wedding." Kidding of course.. or am I? LOL

Same here, man! They all cleared out of the surrounding areas long ago. But if it's true that Sears is part of K-Mart, maybe they have them there? I don't know, I haven't seen toys at a Sears since the good 'ol days.

Went to a Sears today..."We only stock toys during Xmas..." Oh well...

Magick
06-16-2008, 04:15 PM
Sears stopped doing the exclusives many many years ago, so even though they are a part of the Kmart franchise, they operate under a different service. Thus like Porkchop said, they only stock toys around Xmas and even then they are usually for real little kids like the imaginex stuff and the like.

What I wouldn't give for some Crimson or Nok exclusives to pop out of Sears again.

I have managed to pick up 2 sets of the wave 4 CP's that was last month as well. This month has been filler waves. So I wouldn't expect a flux of wave 4 again till after the con. then they'll be everywhere, kinda like how wave 2 & 3 just popped up everywhere in abundance.

I got my Wave 4 about a month ago here in Houston. I have seen Copperhead and Shipwreck since then but none of the other packs. If anyone from Houston is going to Joecon and would be willing to pick up new stuff for me, let me know. I will paypal you the cash as soon as I get a phone call on the goods! I can not attend due to a fund raiser we are throwing for my terminally ill brother in law. If anyone wants to go...it will be held at Cypress Saloon on the 29th.

Thanks and post if you see any vehicles in H-town!

If anyone in Houston is looking for the Wave 4 Comic Packs, I just found them at the Walmart on Highway 6 just south of the West Oaks Mall. I only bought the Firefly pack; when I left there were 4 Shipwreck/Copperhead packs, 3 Firefly/SS packs, and 2 Duke/Red Star packs.

I have already switched the original Firefly's webgear to this one and the darker suit is a huge improvement.

Happy hunting!

well apparently people have a ton of b.a.t.s. and it is the next wave out.over a hunderd booths at the convention.hopefully they will have everything. id say if k mart has the new vehicles they will most likley be at the convention. it has been weeks since the wave 8 release , so it is getting closer to wave 9 . if they have wave 9 it will be our best chance to build up our b.a.t. and snow serpant armys

Cannon, Aly and I will be there. He may not remember you, but I have a pretty good memory.

Tingling.. Alyosha is the owner/operator of Broken Arrow Toys.. Basically a lot of the customs you see on here either use his parts or GTG Customs.. which now have a new name that I can't remember for the life of me. anyways.. Broken Arrow Toys is the booth we are working.

Snow Job - As for test marketing joe stuff.. haven't heard anything as of today. would be cool though.

Alyosha started taking stuff to the Con last night. I am on call, since there wasn't really a lot of people who signed up for the Class, I am not needed till Fri. Possibly late Thurs night. Depends on what all he has going on.

Now on to the topic at hand.. still nothing new. It's like everything went bone dry these last few weeks. No wave 4 CP's even. A ton of Vipers though. Mainly just looking for the new vehicle assort.

Chris_
06-25-2008, 10:56 AM
So if I drive all the way up to Frisco, pay the general admission to get in, what exactly am I going to get out of that? I don't care about anything but the 25th line that has recently come out, and I don't really care to go to Frisco to get something I can get on the store shelf. If there are going to be exclusives there, but the possibility of getting anything is slim to none, I'm not wasting the gas.

So tell me guys, honest opinion, is this going to be a waste of my time?

jdbrown55
06-25-2008, 11:20 AM
I am not sure. I am trying to get vintage stuff more than the
25th line. I want the new vehicles, but like you said, they can be gotten on the store shelf. I can only go Sunday and I have never been to a Joe Con personally, so for me I want to go. For you, I really don't know.

Snow Job
06-25-2008, 02:37 PM
Well, to be fair, the vehicles can't really be bought on store shelves right now. I think the K-Mart thing was just a fluke, if you ask me. I feel the real release date is still going to be in July.

Anyways, if they do some sort of test marketing thing like they did with Botcon and Animated toys, we might see some vehicles in the surrounding area this weekend. :D

Well there is a lot of stuff that goes on at the cons.. interviews, sneak peaks of upcoming releases.. Tons and tons of venders..

Pretty much everything joe you can think of rolled up in one huge area. It is usually worth the drive and money. Plus they rarely have a joecon in Texas.. so this is kind of a once in a lifetime event. Would rather pay the gas and drive than have to pay for a plane ticket and hotel in another state.

Not a big toy collector though, and I would never fly anywhere for a toy convention. I don't really care about sneak peaks, new releases, or anything like that. All I'm buying is this 25th stuff. If they have none of that, then it's really not worth the drive for me. I had everything that came out from 82 to about 87 (wish I still had it, but that can't be undone), so this is my chance to at least get some of that back. I don't collect any other toy line, and have no intention of doing so.

Not being a downer, I'm just looking for specific stuff, and want to know if they have what I'm looking for, and if it's going to be worth my time to go. If they're going to have some of the next wave, so I don't have to hunt for it, then I'll consider it worth the drive. If they'll have exclusives in 25th, I'll go. Otherwise, I don't really care.

i wish they had a ton of vipers here, i guess it will filter down here eventuly

I haven't really looked much lately, but I have seen vipers everywhere when I have looked. Some stores have been chock full of vipers.

I only saw one case of wave 9. Can't really see well cuz its a bunch of toys on one crate and I'm sure there is more than one case. Let me tel you about wal mart. Ill admit this myself cuz I done this before. Many employee would when they aren't supposed to would hide some in the back room for themself. Some would tell you that there aren't any avaiable when a customer ask the employee so the best best would be get a manager and ask directly to manager if you feel the employee aren't honest. Most employee in the toy dept are scalpers when they know they can get more money for the toys that was just released which is why you will rarely see many or any on shelf for the 1st few weeks.

Destro was also there...

Snow Job, did you ever go by a booth that had a glass case full of customs? Towards the back near the custom contest tables?

If so that was alyosha's table. I was one of the people running the booth. Satuday due to it being so damn cold in there, I was probably wearing a dark blue hoodie with lighte blue tribal on it. Glasses... and a Cobra hat turned backwards.

That day was so crazy for us, so you could have popped in when I went to the Hasbro preview.. or was shopping.

Managed to pick up my third Flagg and a mostly complete Defiant.. pretty much free.

Only managed to snag one wave 9 fig.. Ninja Ku.. a.k.a Storm Shadow according to his filecard and stand. Grrr..

Stores in my area will be getting shipments tomorrow night.

I was there on Sunday, man. Where were you on Sunday? And I saw those cases, yeah. I don't recall what was on the table, though. I remember a lot of the tables were a little empty. Except for the big scenes put together and some custom carded figures.

And third Flagg? I don't even have one. lol Where did you get it? I didn't see a vendor with one.

And where is your area? lol And you mean Walmarts, right?

Magick
06-30-2008, 06:52 PM
Yeah we were there all weekend. Right across from the custom contest tables. We didn't have any custom carded figures, just severl customs Alyosha did that are in a wood and glass case. You would know it if you saw it.. had his version of a Nemesis Enforcer in the middle back with huge wings.

The vendor right behind Murauder John had a Flagg. He had a $200 price tag on it, but I got him down cheaper than that, then worked out a deal basically on it. It was missing the fan rail, skirt, elevator parts and a few other things, but with one of my other ones that isn't complete, I am hoping to make a near complete one with the two.

As for the Defiant, I am missing a few part and I need the Crawler. (Bottom piece)

By sunday, everything was pretty much wiped out. Actually everything really good was wiped out by Saturday afternoon. Although the dealers on Fri. really hammered people.


My area is northwest Fort Worth. According to my connections they are expecting a shipment in tonight. So we should be able to see them tonight and tomorrow.

Lake Worth Wal Mart off hwy 199 and Target on Cherry Lane both have wave 4 comic packs. All of them.

Hey Magick, I was there and hung out with you guys for a while. I went all 3 days and picked up a Starduster and Hit and Run from you guys also a few extra parts on sunday. It was a graet event and my first Con, I might have to start going to all of them if the wife will let me lol. I spent to much money this weekend, and congrats on the flag! I was looking at it but would be to hard to bring it back home, I thought 200 was already a good price!

Wave 9 does not appear to have hit north Houston yet (or I missed it). This morning I started at 610 and 45, went north on 45 to 1960, then west on 1960 to 290, and wthen east on 290 back in to 610 to finish my loop. I visited 5 walmarts and 2 targets and didn't find a single wave 9 figure, not even a Wild Bill or Torpedo without the 25th logo. I did see some wave 7 and wave 8 figures and tons of wave 1-3 comic packs. If anyone in Houston needs a Hiss Driver, the Target on 1960 just east of 249 had a fresh case of wave 7 this morning and I left all of it. Unfortunately, Target is now charging 7.99 and that's just not worth it.

Has anyone anywhere else in Houston found anything yet?

Good hunting.

Found wv 4 cp's in Sugar Land (Target- 6 and 59) for the first time (for me). Along with a Hiss Tank Driver. I left a few other cp's behind. About a case of wv 7 was there minus the Hiss Tank driver that is... Two Vipers left behind because troop building at $7.99 sucks.

Insert Rant: Why is a CP with 2 figs plus a comic $10 while a single carded fig is $7.99??? BS!!! So I was at target and my bill was $42ish. I hand them my $5 off coupon and they declined that too.

This first hit of wave 9 doesn't seem to hit as hard as wave 8 did, but I'm glad I found a few. Should see them hit again next week, hopefully before the price increases. The BATS and Snow Serpents will probably be hard to come by for a few weeks. Saw remnants of a few more cases this afternoon at the Hickory Creek WM since there were still some Hawk, BBQ, Bazooka, etc. on the shelf, but only one BAT and one Snow Serpent.

The same goes for the Wal Mart store here in Lake worth. The Dept. manager that I know was off all weekend and was out to lunch today when I went up there. so I am not sure if they even have them ordered. I'll just cross my fingures and say they will show up Tues night/ Wed. Morning.

If not, then I guess it's the waiting game again. Keep finding random BATs at different wal mart stores around here though. No other wave 9 around, but one lone BAT at each. Not that i'm complaining.

The vehicles were in Dallas on July 5th at one Walmart. Only the DVD Battle Packs haven't shown up yet anywhere. I check around daily trying to find them, a HISS tank, and some BATs.

Like others, I probably won't get my BAT army finished until wave 9 rev. 2 shows up with more BAT/Snow figures.

I feel your pain! I have checked the Denton, Flower Mound and Lewisville stores expecting vehicles and have had no luck. The only place I have even seen wave 4 cps is the FM Target. Hopefully with tomorrow being Target's stock day they will have them. The discouraging thing is that I have not even seen a space cleared off the shelves for them. I will post in here tomorrow after looking. Good Luck!

That's the only way you're gonna get them around here ! I wasted my time looking today. Denton Target, Flower Mound Target and FM Wal-Mart had nada. Still not even a space on the shelves. It does look like Target may be getting ready for an isle reset with most of the toys on clearance. If they wanna move some stuff they should put the Hawk/Scarlett CPs on clearance since they have been there for 6 months. FM Wal-Mart does have 8 vipers if anyone is interested in instant troop building.

DFW people rejoice.. several Wal Mart stores in the north Fort Worth area got in cases last night. I picked up some extras (2 Hiss, 1 Ram/Bubble) since I had already bought a set off Ebay. Wouldn't you know they would pop up now.. Grrr.

Anywho.. there was one case that was severely mangled, the clear parts of the boxes are crushed to all get out, but the toys looked fine. Left those on the shelf as hopes that they are still there tonight when my check goes through.

Also... I have noticed that they aren't on the same isle as the other joes.. they seem to be either on endcaps facing the back of the store or on an isle that is usually reserved for the pool cleaning stuff. (If your Wal Mart has one near the Toys)

They also recieved the new TF Classics (Sunstreaker. Prowl. Tankor)

I feel your pain Crock. I only saw wave 9 once (when I scored them) and there was no Bat to be found.

Will the DVD battle packs be released at Wal Mart? My luck with the Targets in my area has been very bad.

If anyone is interested, they had all 4 of the new 12" Joes at the Wal Mart in Mustang Station in Forney.
Was passing thru from Dallas to LA. They looked pretty awesome. They had 2 Flint, 2 Bazooka, 1 Cobra, 1 Dusty.

All I can find are the Armadillo/Air Chariots all over Houston...got in on the deal at Amazon and ordered everything that I hadn't pre-ordered. Houston folks, are we going to do a meet sometime soon?

I just found the vehicles here in Austin at the Target on 35 and 290. I got the last Hiss tank now all I need is Barbeque and some B.A.T figures.

DVD sets are in Dallas. I just grabbed one of the two pairs from Target in Allen.
