Massachusetts sightings!!

As i hollowed out a giant log to use for travel down this treachorous river, it dawned on me that my fellow Joe's would have their figures released around this time.
I packed some essentials, left camp and proceeded to hike about 5 clicks N-NW towards the town center.
I finally reached my destination and in the midst of all the hustle and bustle of American commerce....there they were!

I got my Cobra 5-pack and all 5 single, carded figures at a WalMart in Fairhaven, MA.

The Dartmouth, MA WalMart had nothing as well as the Toys R' Us. Target in Dartmouth also had nothing....

strange.

btw - i grabbed the last of all the single, carded figures. Only one other Storm Shadow and (2) Snake-Eyes figures were left.

The 5-packs i grabbed (1) out of (5) Cobra sets and there was only
(2) G.I. JOE sets. i didn't grab any of the Joe sets because the boxes were just to messed up. I'll wait for the next time. My buddy, who's been working there for approximately 13 years said, "hey, those came in today..." didn't inform me either, that bastid!

good day.

sincerely,
S. Selkirk

they have filtered everywhere now in SE Massachusetts.

as of today:
Target has maybe 2 SS, 4 SE single carded and 2 COBRA 5-packs and 1 JOE 5-pack.

TRU in Dartmouth has 4 COBRA 5-packs and 1 JOE 5-pack.

Wal-Mart in Fairhaven has 1 SS and maybe 2 SE

Wal-Mart in Dartmouth doesn't have the single cards or any 5-packs..

the funniest thing was when i called Wal-Mart in Wareham...they transfered me to this chick in "toys" who was like..."the what?"..."we don't have those and we won't be carrying them"

LOLLLLL, no clue. it's like what do these people get paid to do. walk around doing absolutely nothing.

the super-Wal-Mart in Rayhnam/Taunton, the guy was like "we have no 5-packs and the single-carded figures are out of stock but we should be getting more in a few days"....very professional and knowledgable.

the world we live in.

Massachusetts - Wave 3 signs...

Just found the tracks of Wave 3 (Officer, Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow).

The new figures were already scooped.

I guess it's at least comforting to see a pegwarmer! I'm a one figure kind of guy, so I left them.

Hey im in New Hampshire not too far away at all, they do have wave 3 here as well as I just came back from my local Target and a guy with his girlfriend decided to fill up the whole basket with them. He literally only left a Snake Eyes and a Storm Shadow which was bent really bad. In his basket he had 2 Zartans, 2 Fireflys, 1 Cobra Red Ninja, Stalker and CC ---> ): I literally asked him if he would let me buy one of them right there in the store and the guy was like "no im a collector " oh well. Also , I told Outback there is a Wave 2 at target in Somersworth but its a hour drive for me and im all set, They have all 8 I was told and if its worth it to you you may want to check it out.

Where in NH were these found? I live in Central NH, but sometimes I travel down to Concord/Hookset if there are goodies to be had...

thanks for the heads-up RainMK.

my connect at WAL MART told me that they were receiving a new shipment today (oct. 5) must be wave 2.

the truck is received today, most likely put out on pegs either tonight or overnight.

...i'm going there now just to make sure.
