I enjoy the hunt. Something about finding that joe keeps me going. Most of my collection is from retail. As far as gas goes, my drive to work has me passing 4 walmarts, 1 kmart, 2 tru, 1 hastings, and a couple of comic book stores. They pay me for gas so I don't waste my money. Although, I have been trading to get wave 10 because I haven't seen it at retail. I got both wraith's and croc master from fellow tankers. Thanks guys!!! It will be nice to come home and see them on my porch.

That's what I've been doing for the last month. It saves me the aggravation, time, and sometimes money (from not driving around).

It sounds like the majority is buying online now.
I agree it saves money, time and frustration.
I also wonder how will this affect the industry when everyone is buying online and leave the pegs filled.
We might see a future change in production and availability. Maybe brick & mortar stores won't carry them anymore, who knows.
Store exclusives might change to internet exclusives?
And if this will be a change, maybe we will see barely any crappy repaints because the retail demand for them might be changed.
The new MOTU is setup with the exclusive sale through mattycollector to test the series is kinda allready something like this.

You know if some people would wait about a month to look for new stuff you might not be disappointed......Stop going out the moment you see first sightings.......give it some time........Just because so and so sees it in Cali on Tuesday doesnt mean it will be in TN the same day.
Although they can manage to have Midnight SW Madness sales and have all that stuff out Eveywhere on the same day.....

I just purchased wave 10 online from HTS. I also have the DVD packs & Fang x2 on the way. It was a knowbrainer with the 20% off. I am finding myself hunting less often - who knows I might just go the Internet route from now on.

Excluding wave 10, new DVD Packs & wave 6 CP's, I've found everything at retail. Wave 10 came from BBTS, new DVD packs from HTS and everything else will be preordered from now on. As I've learned with Star Wars, when they start switching lines, things start showing up in smaller quantities except for their Saga Legends which is GI Joe's version of the revision fig's clogging the shelves and new stuff is never seen and I have plenty of stores to check and they all have the same thing-stuff I already have. So it's best to just get'em online when ya see'em available.

I've given up hunting as well. Ordering online just takes the headache out of it and the constant disappointment.

You know I have been thinking that Hasbro wants it all online. The only thing that I wonder is how will brick and morter stores will stay active.
I actually have been thinking of giving up on Joes totally. I don't like to buy online and really it seems Hasbro doesn't give a shit to get off their butts and ship anything.
I have a hard time giving money to a company that obviously is too lazy to take it.

Hehe, I did the same thing and paid way too much for a VAMP and Pyramid of Darkness DVD pack from the local comic shop. With the exchange rate what it is now, plus shipping, it's basically what I would have paid to order it from the States. Oh well...
