Hi!!! Here in puebla i found the g.i. Joe 25th in wallmart the same waves mentioned before and combat heroes waves 1 and 2 but the bad news is that they wrap them with tape so the card is damaged!!! And don't have a date for the rise of cobra figures or some vehicles to come!!!

I emailed Hasbro UK about the 25th line being released over here and the said there where no plans for Joe product in Europe at any point. Hope this is about to change.

This is entirely new to me, so far I can tellyou I haven't seen anything here in Mexico City, the only way to get the Modern era was through local toy shops. I hope they get a wider release, since I'm not buying the overpriced figures at liverpool or sanborns.

Ok, call me ignorant (for not knowing) but the way the US media is handling it, Mexico is a full out war zone, is it not?
Just curious as they make it sound like if you go outside you will get shot and here you are talking about going to stores and buying Joes.
Or is it the same the way International media plays the whole "all the Americans have guns and are cowboys in the streets" stereotype?

I've been looking for the Joes in many different stores and malls, in Sanborns I've just seen Bazooka, Cobra Wraith, Armored CC, BAT, BBQ and Trip Wire, just in one Sanborns I've found an old Three Comic Pack, I tried some other places but just at Wizard a store that is in many mexican malls, have the same Joes for $179.00 pesos, menwhile i can`t find some more, I will be buying my figures at the free market with the "ambulantes" is quite cheap $20.00 pesos less. I'll keep looking for mores figures and I'll try at Sears. CU ˇViva Mexico!

Its NOT like that, at all.
I may not be your typical mexican stereotype (Thank you marvel comics), but Im a proud mexican nonetheless.
There are some parts that are dangerous, that anybody with a chimp IQ would avoid. If you live in the big cities, there is really not much trouble other than "showing off" in an area you arent supposed to (As being in the Bronx and waving a rolex).
If you are a tourist, just play it safe and stick to tourist zones.
Other than that, sure, there is a "war" against drug dealers, but that is near the border, and that is because the crackdown against them.
About "stereotypes", I wont really talk much about that, just gonna point that a lot of mexicans (low middle class and up) live the same way as you, look at the same movies, eat the same McCrap, read the same magazines, comics, dress the same (sorry, sombreros are so 1910, now everybody wears Abercrombie & Fitch) and the only major difference you will find is that some have darker skin and an accent speaking engish (the same you would have if you spoke spanish).
Hope that clears a lot up, no hard feelings, ok?
One man, but the right man for the job!
