fireflyguy:
Cool. That means we will see em eventually.
fireflyguy:
I'm really not interested in any except the SE and maybe the Duke.
maverick2076:
I like the Shipwreck, and the Trooper and CC. SE is OK. I don't really care for SS or the grey Duke, but maybe they will grow on me.
Konigstiger:
C'mon, mass releas of that Shipwreck!
sbartek1974:
How long has it taken for figures to hit the states after they've first hit eBay? Just trying to get a guesstimate on when these may start showing up now that they are on eBay.
CVdelgado:
i was hoping that duke color would be good for a toon version of grunt or breaker... i think its too green still, what do you think? maybe its just my eyes...

id like maybe 2 dukes and a shipwreck the others are passes.

Definitely good for a Short Fuse custom.
manic mailman:
must get that "duke" really hope these pop up at family dollar instead of Dollar gen or somewheres else. but regardless hope they pop up soon and in wide availability
Superjoe74:
I'll take a case or two. I have uses for all of them except the Cobra Commander- he has too many hooded variants as it is....
astrakhan:
Snake Eyes is getting turned into my Kamakura.

That's not a bad idea.
CobraCrimson:
$66 already for that comic colored Cobra Trooper/Officer!?!?!

These will probably hit here in about 1-3 months.
Rainbow Viper:
They're so beautiful! I can't wait till they hit the DG stores.
cmderinchief:
I thought the Duke was more grey...

looking foward to SE + SS this time

(did i just type that?)
Dolemite:
I still say that Hasbro's distribution of these is disgraceful.

I agree. At first only a few could be found. Then there were none. Now they're flooding the DGs with them.
Crimson Gord:
i wish we had a dollar general here, i would buy all sorts of them.
Nirvana:
RoG had these up yesterday.

http://www.hisstank.com/forum/4110338-post23194.html

And I'm sure they'll slowly spread out just like Wave 1 is. DG is just the only one we know for sure bothering to carry the Basic wave.
samantha:
I want several of the Cobra troopers.
revsears:
I plan on using that shipwreck a ton for custom fodder. I prefer sleeved boots, but one of the few suviving parts of the 25th o13 figures is those lower legs, so with same paint, I think i'll be using them and upgrading my o 13.

I also want SS, between the 2 SS's using boil and pop you can make a nearly all white SS in that mold.
figureware:
Ill be using the hell out of a couple of those! But I have said before If Hasbro wanted to hit jackpot!?...
Release DG versions of Dark Ninja
RET. Joe Trooper
Red Ninja
Black Cobra trooper
Blue Cobra trooper
Zombie Vipers
Do This and watch them fly off shelves!
Steevy Maximus:
I'm not going to get excited until I see on package samples. Gyre Viper had these right alongside the released deco, so there were clearly a good number produced.
sparks007:
He has had these up for a few days all of which had buy it now priced listings at one point. Is it me or does that Shipwreck look like he has an African American skintone on his neck.I can't wait to get a few of those Shipwrecks and Dukes the rest are cool but those two are the stand outs to me.

Shhh...we don't want the riff raff in the MU thread...
Dragasses:
someone paid 27 bucks for t'gin-zu with no sash?

people is weird.

This is at least a good sign they are on the way, just maybe not till summer or late spring.

Too late ... I check out the MU thread frequently and that place is full of riff raff pretty funny stuff though
Jay West:
SS is a must b/c it is essentially a new character - T'GIN-ZU (v1), YOJOE.COM | YoJoe.com: Dedicated to the G.I.Joe of the 80's, 90's and beyond!

While the color is off of the actual figure, SS resembles the more tame filecard art.

SW and Duke are great for greenshirts and customs. CC is a pass since it's essentially this CC COBRA COMMANDER (v34), YOJOE.COM | YoJoe.com: Dedicated to the G.I.Joe of the 80's, 90's and beyond! with less paint apps.

Trooper is fun. I'd like a few of those.

If these do fit, I was thinking of troop builder SE, but it might make a decent Kamakura as someone suggested.
brock Samson:
If these are anything like the first wave, we'll see them popping up in DG stores within a month. I remember saying it then and I'll say it now, don't waste your money on these. Just be patient and you'll get them in stores.

My opinion hasn't changed much since we first saw the alternate versions. The green Shipwreck and greyish Duke will be great for customs. I'm passing on the SE, SS. Might pick up one CC to play around with making another character with a different head. I'm a sucker for cobra troopers but I'm not in love with the web gear. Good thing the retaliation figs come with plenty of extra replacement pistols, silencers and knives made for that body.

Exactly! So why in the world are people bidding on an inferior version of CC v34? I don't get it. I really don't. Neither do I get how that trooper is currently at $66 + shipping. Really? At least the w1 all black trooper was something different. You want one for $6-10? Maybe. Approaching $100 (you watch and see before it's over)? Someone's on crack.
Crimson Gord:
i'm on crack
vapor:
Im digging the se and ss but thats about it. the trooper is cool but i prefer the black one over this new blue.

lol, I agree, but before techno viper ever hit retail, i was getting noided out since poc wave 5 and 6 were so scarce and payed 54.00 shipped for a techno viper. lol, then when i saw them at retail, i bought quite a bit to make up for my stupidity.

...not here, and we've got a bajillion DG's. They've never been abundant and have been completely gone since October. DG must have Walmart's distribution plan for GI Joe: starve the areas where they sell and flood the areas where they don't.
Crimson Gord:
well i'm the $66 man, i won the cobra trooper auction. i've bought every last item of interest with in a 200 mile radius, and this is what it has boiled down to, call me crazy but these days of slim pickins have gotten me into the groove of just going after whatever i want and getting it and it feels good, lol.

I completely understand where you are coming from, it is your money bro, you earned it, do whatever you want with it.

I don't want the figure, but I get it. If it is never released (which is a slim possibility) then you have something very rare even though it's not that cool looking IMO. Or if you are if you are in a place that doesn't have DG's and you are a completest. Not my gig, but I get it.

Popped up earlier, like a week ago.
Omegawrath:
Dunno if anyone's pointed this out yet, but that Cobra Trooper (Officer) is colored just like the original (pre-show) animation model.

Dig it.
HooveRtron:
Nice to see a somewhat different twist on Snake Eyes after all these years, minor though it is...
sparks007:
The only thing I want from that SE is the webgear the rest is of no use to me and I don't like the look of the figure.
PFunk:
The Cobra trooper is a must buy for me. And I liked him in black, too.

...and while that sucks, you still have Feebay. You can get a DG cobra trooper black for $10-15 easy.

Oh, I've made a mistake before. Huge. I purchased a Wet Suit Brazil convention figure to use as a custom job because I was scared of painting camo. I no longer am, and that's a $100 I can't get back. HUGE mistake I'm still kicking myself over!

But then I learned from it. I'm assuming you did, too.

Now I also realize that some figures will NEVER come down in price. Take SS REN, for example. But you can also hold out for a while and wait it out. The worst you will USUALLY have to pay is the SAME hot price from the year before, maybe slightly higher or lower. Usually lower, as the figure has fallen out of vogue.

Again, I know there are anomolies out there; some figures will simply get increasingly expensive. But it's not the norm. Those wave 2 DG troopers will be a dime a dozen in the next year.
46 Zone:
Has Hasbro ever made a fig with blue CG helmet? Wouldnt mind trying to make a cobalt guard with the blue DG cc.
