Indiana G.I. Joe Sightings

After daily searching of Walmarts and Targets, I checked a local Kmart in Bloomington, IN and found one Flint and one Storm Shadow. Didn't imagine I'd find them at Kmart as they are normally pretty behind on things. I'm going to be keeping my eye out for the 5 packs.

Started out on the hunt 8:00am Saturday morning @ the Grantline Road KMart where I found exactly nothing but a big mess.

The Grantline WalMart yeilded a few beauties I didn't even know were coming out- new 12" GIJOE Adventure Team Re-Issues! They had Air Adventurer, Land Adventurer, Man of Action, GIJoe Adventurer and Sea Adventurer. @ 9.99 Each and retro cool in the original style box packaging, I just had to buy one of each. Several of each remained except for GIJoe Adventurer, of which I had bought the last one.

After the Indiana run I hit most Louisville stores starting out east on Westport Road and moving west-NO damn GIJoe 25th figures anywhere... (or any '08 Bumblebees or other new TF's)

At literally my last desperate stop, the Sears Essentials (KMart) on Dixie Highway, I struck a little gold. After searching all through toys, (@KMarts anything can be anywhere, the sloppy #$#@'s) I found, perched on a top shelf above die cast cars, exactly one GIJoe and one Cobra 25th Anniversary 5 Pack. I was giddy as a schoolgirl. They rock! And pleasantly they were 24.99 each, I expected the usual 2-5$ KMart overcharge.

Colder Soldier, I'm still planning on buying at least one more of each for myself but the next ones I find are yours and then I'll get seconds. (Hopefully I'll find a bunch at once)

I went out again @1:00 this morning to WalMarts Clarksville, Wesport and Hubbards Lane- Nada. No GIJoe, no Transformers at all on any of the stores pallets. After finding the same stuff on the evening pallets of these 3 stores I surrendered for the evening and headed to White Castle. I'm finishing my large chocolate milkshake as I type... *burps*;)

I live in SW Indiana, Evansville to be exact. I have seen 1 25th thing here. It was at the new Target. They had one GI Joe box. That was it. TRU told me that they'll be in Frida, tomorrow, and Wal-Mart has no clue. There are 4 Wal-Marts within the area, a K-Mart, a TRU, and several Targets. I did find Snake Eyes at a TRU in Chicago, the only thing they had, and CC, SS and Cobra Officer at Wizard World Chicago for 10 per. It sucked paying a little extra, but at least I have them. Now, if I can just get Flint and that damn Cobra box, I'll be good. Of course, I want another of each to keep MISP and a few select figs for customizing.

All the G.I. JOEs in the North side of Indianapolis
are gone..

I've been to 4 Walmarts, 3 Targets and 1 Kmart
these past 3 days, and nothing.

I even went at 6 am because one of the stupid Walmart workers said they should be in today,
but nope..nothing ..

Why is it so hard to find????

P.S.
Not sure if its true for all Kmart stores,
but they are having a 10% sale on all G.I. JOE figures

All the Target's (in the north side of Indy) have 2 boxes each of the Joe 5 pack, and that's it.

I just called and they did an inventory search and
that's all that came up.........

I have a feeling the next fiqs. to hit Walmart and Target will be wave 4 in Nov.

Worst comes to worst, I'll sell my small 25th collection and concentrate on my vintage collection. Speaking of which, anyone on here interested in trading vintage figs?
Yeah, I think I'm wasting my time & gas $ to
go around finding them...

Save yourself a trip to Indiana zip nothing nada.I piced up an extra Flint(I was getting it for Gnawgahyde since he couldn't find any)So if anyone in the Louisville area still needs one let me know you can have it for the 4.88 plus tax I paid for it.

5-packs=yes, single figs=no for the Evansville area. There's a Walmart in IL that has a couple CC and one SE. I've seen a green stalker in E-ville but thats the only Wave 3 fig I've seen in store and that was a month or so ago.
