On this thread, all I can say is be careful what you wish for. People had issues finding stuff and now we're choking on it. The retailers are just to blame more than anyone. I hope six months from now we won't be sitting on mounds of Tiger Force Dukes and Wraiths like we are now with Jet Pack Dukes, Wild Bills, Spirits and Vipers.
Don't hate me because you got banned from a Toy Forum.

I missed previous ones but never really took the time to look for them as I did not think they were important. If I can find them cool if not oh well.
But to unload 100+ on a Wraith right now seem a little too desperate.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

This is a great thread, because I was just thinking about the MM Joker this morning when I went to WM and saw 2 hanging on the pegs. Also, the vipers are a must to mention, because I considered buying one off ebay (thank God I didn't) and now there are 10 or more at my local WM, not to mention the other stores in the area. I also was in a hurry to get the FF comic pack, and have since seen those all around as well.

I think the reason why some people pay marked up prices on ebay is because:
a. There just too lazy to leave the house.
b. They have no transportation because,
-there drivers license is suspended or don't have one
-they can't drive
-they have no car or they car is broke down
c. Maybe they just like throwing money away.
d. They Probably live in a small town, Wal-mart, Toys r us, and Target are probably miles and miles away.
e. They just don't no there joe. The stupid ones
I can understand there sitition in need to resort to scalpers. But don't these idiots know that there are other sources than ebay.
Before you give into a scalpers price they should order from places like BBTS, HTS, Toys R Us, Wal-mart, or Target online.
I'm sure those places will have it a whole lot cheaper than the scalpers price on ebay.
Thats probably the problem these suckers who pay for marked up joes don't know about other sources.
They think that ebay is the only game in town.

Yeah I'm noticing a glut of Jet Pack Dukes, Python Patrol Troopers, and Cartoon Baronesses here in PA. But I too am surprised at how quickly these things started to peg warm. I'm not a 25th Anniv. snob ... as I will eventually open them all up for display so I really don't care what card they are on.
And like many of you ... I would like to see a BAT troop pack (or any troop pack for that matter). I missed out on the single carded COBRAs the first go around/

I don't find him at every Wal-Mart I visit.
Honestly, he is seen about 1/6 trips that I make, and even then, it's the "as seen in comics" version.
The real jem I found last night was a 25th Silver Foil card of HISS Driver.
He was just sitting there!!!
It was an awesome find, and i scored Beach Head + Main Frame and Wild Bill + Scrap Iron!!!

With all due respect to the Movie Masters Joker figure, that is an expection because of the death of Heath Ledger and also the figure was pulled from shelves and it was uncertain whether or not there would ever be more of that figure.
