I just saw the A-10 Warthog at Toys R Us this Xmas season and like a dumbass I didnt buy it lol.
True Heroes OR whatever they call themselves now does still make them and sell them. Right now the only place I see them for sale is in Europe.
Toys R Us stocks much more True Heroes product around the holidays because they are cheaper affordable alternatives to GI-Joe and McFarlane Military stuff for the kids. Bid Lots is also guilty of this.
HOWEVER, they still carry the stuff but as True Heroes adds new vehicles that's what comes in. Toys R Us especially is a fan of not stocking the same thing for too long when it comes to a more obscure company like True Heroes.
In fact, MOST of the True Heroes, forces of valor, and similar action figures are on clearance. I picked up all the Navy Seals for like 3 bucks a piece, a couple of nice looking special forces guys, AND found a fighter pilot that came with a real parachute for a whopping $1.50 each. The Pilot is HORRIBLE but I can EASILY cut off his head and hollow out the VERY cool and accurate helmet he's wearing, as well as the oxygen mask.
True Heroes stuff here in NY is still available. I saw the Outpost building at Big Lots for $30.00, Toys R us right now has the Headquarters playset, watch tower playset, 2 or 3 types of tanks and assault vehicles, the F-22 Raptor, the Blackhawk Chopper, Navy Seal BIG boat, smaller Navy Seal rubber boat set with small chopper, and a bunch of True Heroes Police and Firefighter vehicles. I think there was a Humvee type vehicle as well.
I was going to buy a few of these to sell to you guys if you were looking for this stuff BUT couldn't see spending a few hundred dollars to potentially get stuck with the stuff lol.
So the product is out there, it's just a tough find in some geographic locations. I'm in New York, we see a decent stock of varied True Heroes/World Peacekeepers/Elite Operations stuff.
Oh yeah, if people have questions bout this stuff Private Message me, I get lost in the forums and sometimes never find what you guys replay to lol
