Location: Canada, eh?
Yesterday, I started my GI Joe day with a trip to TRU on my lunch hour. TRU in Canada is having a Buy One get One Free special, which works out to 5$Can per figure. I figured that 5$ was a great price for some fodder. To my surprise, they had the Paris Pursuit wave. Picked up DA Scarlett, RA Duke x2, PP SE x3 and a Steel Crusher.
I finished work a few minutes before 3pm and caught the 3:10 showing of ROC. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It really is the cartoon come to life. It reminded me of how I used to play with my Joes when I was a kid. The opening scene with Snake Eyes (and the other Joes) taking down those Vipers in the forrest gave me chills. I was a bit disappointed with the ending, but overall, it was a fun movie.
After the movie, I crossed the street to the mall. Winners (A Canadian discount chain) had some leftover 25th figs. I picked up a BAT and Wraith. After that I checked a small hobby store and they also had some 25th figs. Found an Airborne and 2 EELS!
To top it all off, I got home and a small package was waiting for me in my mailbox. It contained 3 25th Vipers and a couple of black Resolute CCs I got from C.I.A.D on Ebay. Thanks C.I.A.D!
Yesterday was a great GI Joe day!
Anyone else ever have one of these days?

Wow... everywhere you went you found Joes; including 2 EELs. LOL. That is a good day indeed.
Hmmm... I think my best Joe day was when I finally found Wave 9 on the pegs at retail. Of course, later on Wave 9 was EVERYWHERE. LOL.
