FINALLY, Idaho chiming in. Not that anyone but me and my buddy that is also a TANKER that lives here will care...but at least I get to participate!
Target (Eagle Rd) had stock out today. Nothing was there on Friday or Saturday but today they had it in the aisle and on an end cap.
Looks like they had 2 cases of the 3(?). The one they were missing was the Ice Viper and CC case. Out of the 2 that they did have there are/were no Scarlett's to be found but every other figure had representation there.
Picked up the SE, Baroness and what I think is one of the best figs in the line, Shipwreck. Finally an update to this figure and one resembling the Devil's Due version, very cool.
I have to say I was pretty impressed by the figures and I've been a nay sayer to this point. So, without going any further,....
I WILL NOW ADMIT TO MY FELLOW TANKERS THAT I WAS WRONG ABOUT THE MAJORITY OF THESE TOYS BEING ABSOLUTE CRAP!
There I said it, happy?
However I'm not jumping on the bandwagon for the movie yet. Actually I'm not even sure who controls the bandwagon for the movie, the haters or the pro ROC's?
Anyways, I said I liked them a lot more than I was expecting but there are some horrendous mistakes.
The Ripcord, sorry never jumping off that hate train. Great likeness for a figure, but no, lame, lame, lame, lame.
The HD, both figures, UBER LAME.
The Covergirl, didn't look so much like a gorilla as the pics initially showed. Stupid generic jumpsuit however, so passed.
Breaker, yeah lame.
Zartan, nothing else to say but lame.
Destro, same here....lame.
SS, there is just something wrong with this figure. I tried to put it in my cart 3 times....couldn't pull the trigger.
Sooooo, that said, what DID I find surprisingly cool? The Desert Duke, the ones I bought, and the vehicles impressed me quite a bit.
The Night Raven is VERY tempting to purchase and my biggest surprise was the Mole Pod. Looks WAY better in person and the Croc Master repaint figure is pretty damn cool.
The Snow Job and the Rock Slide look really good. The Ferret and the Armadillo were just okay. The Thunderblast figure however is really quite good. Too bad he comes with that lame @SS Armadillo.
This Target didn't have the Pit but they had a spot for them so maybe someone bought them/it.
Well that's all I got, happy hunting to the rest of you.

On July 1st I went to a Target in NOrth Olmstead, Cleveland while I am on vacation visiting family. A guy working the toy aisle told me they were not going to reset for ROC until the 16th... Cant wait to get home and see what is there.

The Target in White Plains NY had an endcap up. Picked up gunship, PP SE, the two Scarletts, Cover Girl and an Ice Viper. I wanted the Steel crusher but I really need to pace myself with this release
They also had:
Cobra Commander (not bad for a fig, just not CC)
Accel. suit Duke
Neo Viper Commando
And after that I'm drawing a blank.
You know... first of all it really was fantastic to see a big GI Joe display like that.
Second, though I'll never be in love with the stylistic choices they've made with this movie and line, the quality here is really superb in my opinion. Great figures.
I do have one question about the Gunship.... what friggin font does Cobra use??? I pulled the decal sheet out of the box upside down and it looked some alien language. Even right-side up the words look weird. That said they do add some much needed color to the vehicle, so by all means slap them all on.
Available for trade:
MU Ult Captain America
Python Patrol Viper
