Hey, I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I just bought 4 ROC figures and and armored panther that were in the empty joe area at Target.
I know it's "pics or it didn't happen!" but, since I typically use an Ipod to get online, pics are an ordeal to get on here.
Plus, these are easy enough to get from TaoBao or something, the receipt says only "toys/sporting goods" followed by price, and I get no crown for lying and claiming to be the King of getting stuff all of a couple of days early.
Anyway! I'd like to thank the Tank and it's threads, since I ran to Target after trading that Conquests could be had for $7. They were still nearly $17, and I had gotten the last Tiger Rat last week, so it was a disappointment until I came across what looked like a single case of figures on a peg and a single case of 4 small vehicles on the shelf. The price checker didint explode or yell at me when I scanned them, I gave it a shot, and it went fine, unlike other times that I have found street dated stuff.
Picked up the Panther for Thunder, and since I skipped the 25th Armadillo. A bit pricey at $15.99! For a dollar more, the previous version had an extra vehicle and figure!
In person, the dirty chromed effect on the Mole Pod drill was actually pretty nice, although the weathering on the figure was not. Snowmobile and ATV were an easy pass.
The 4 characters available out of the 12 or so figures on the pegs were Destro, Desert Duke, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.
Haven't opened yet, wanted to pass my news along for others to luck out, but HUGE rocket guns aside, they all look pretty nice!
Actually, I just impatiently opened Snake Eyes, and although the visit seems attached, you can lift it to see the unpainted, sculpted eyes. Storm Shadow was tough to find with decent face paint, Destro is just like all the pics Ive seen, and desert Duke is well painted and looks damn near like a real person!
That's it. Probably not news at this point, just letting folks know that if you spot these early, it may be possible to buy them.

Dude! Say armadillo, not armored Panther. I had to look it up so I'd know what you're talking about. Bloody repaints!

After finally breaking down and ordering wave 5 vehicles and nicely priced extreme conditions online this week, checking an obscure, hard to reach Big!Lots today for their mysterious and apparently not set yet sale, and being cockblocked from a pallatte of ROC stuff at Walmart last night...
It felt pretty good buying some new Joes at retail again.
And they are pretty cool, so I imagine many planned boycotters will crumble at the sight of a wall of Joes and pick up a few things, regardless of film quality.
Good luck, although I do hope the release date isn't as strict as Star Wars and nobody got in trouble for my luck.
