Ever since the 25th line come out I have been rather dissappointed by the way retailers have allocated like NO space for a classic name like G.I. Joe. Even when sales go through the roof they still gave little space to the line (while STAR WARS and TRANSFORMERS get entire sections...seriously, how many damn Tatooine Luke Skywalkers are there?!). Anyways...
Today I had to take my little old grandmother to Austin to get a train ticket, and I brought her back to her house in Taylor and, before I went home, I stopped off at the WalMart there just to see if they had ANYTHING new at all, fully prepared for utter dissappointment (i.e. another barrage of Might Morphing Power Rip-Cord).
The 9 pegs they had were, not surprisingly, almost empty. Not sure if they had been recently scavenged or just neglected (I'm leaning to the neglected aspect) but luck and surprise were on my side. Walked out of there with 7 figures ($5 each...thank you Wal-Mart) and honestly, this to me is a jackpot haul:
->Red Fang Ninja
->Ripcord - Jungle Assault
->Snake Eyes - City Strike
->Storm Shadow - Arctic Assault (naked Storm Shadow basically)
->Storm Shadow - Arctic Threat
Nothing major, just a decent haul for WalMart trying to clear their shelves.

Grats on the haul. Always nice to see something new at Walmart that you haven't seen before.

Told you guys that as soon as a decent sale hit we'd see W1-2 clear out for the holidays and new stuff come in. Bring on W4-5.

Great haul! I lucked out on the same thing. $5 for CS SE at Wally world. Last time I was there they had 4 Night Adders a couple of Charbroil's and only one CS SE! I had to grab it for that price.

I'm hoping to find some more $5 Night Adders. I'm still happy about hitting Walmart just as they stocked.

That's a nice haul. Out of all those figs, I've still only seen one CS SE and one night adder in the wild. And of course, you gotta love Wal-Mart's new price.
