Yep we can get them there. And we have some many stalkers where I live it's not even funny. But I haven't seen a Firefly yet at all and he is one of my favorite Cobra's he's on par with Zartan at the very top in my opinion. Though I haven't seen a Zartan either.

I've never met you before, but I absolutely hate you for that.

Thanks for the offer, but I'll wait for the supply chain to catch up. Also, I might be in northern Washington state sometime soon.

Just to let everyone know, while at Target I finally spotted their exclusive HISS tank for 9.99.

Crap I've been looking for that but haven't seen any of the Target Vehicles yet at all and I would love a HISS tank. I never managed to get one originally I was young and have no money and the parents wouldn't comply lol

The only thing I didnt like on them is that they are blue, not black.

^ Customize, man. If I manage to get a hold of two or more, one of them's going to get a nice (fake) chrome job.

Hey guys, if you're looking for the Target exclusives, try the mini endcaps on the front registers. two of the area Targets around here have a display of joe, Transformers, and Star Wars set up.

Sorry but just needed to rant here. I have a friend who works part time security at one of the local Walmarts who called me last night to let me know there was a shipment of GI Joes on the floor. Well I was asleep when he called and got the message this morning when I got up for school. So I got dressed nice and quick to run to the store and when i get there there's a couple scarlets and a couple of the scarlet hawk 2 packs and nothing else. I call him up, cause I know he's not in bed yet, to ask him about it and apparently the local comic shop owner and one of the guys he's with showed up and didn't even wait for them to be shelved and just started grabbing the Joes from the boxes. They've done this crap before they stockpile and after a few months they mark them up and sell them in their store. One of the guys once actually tried to take a Hush Series Riddler from my younger bro when he got it off the shelf, he physically tried to take it from him. It does explain partially why I've been having trouble getting my hands on some of the Joes I've been wanting. I don't have the time to sit in Walmart at 1 in the morning waiting on shipments so looks like I'll just have to keep trying and hope.

Good news, I finally found Stalker, the last one on the shelf.

Seriously, these things are like heroin to me now. I'm going directly from work to the one comic store that regularly has these every Wednesday. Right now, nothing cheeses me off more than seeing an empty peg there that wasn't there last week, and wondering what, if anything, I missed. Firefly? Snakeyes w/timber? I'm going nuts!!

After seeing the prices he's going for online, I kinda regret taking my Flint figure out of his packaging.

Sweet, I got Zartan yesterday. Again, these things aren't readily available in Canada, so it's a big deal for me.

BTW, what are those brown rifles the Crimson Guards have used for? It's hard to get the figure to hold them.

^ Hey, if you're American you've got enough there to send away for Doc. Unfortunately, I'm excluded from that offer.

What a difference regional distribution makes! I thought the entire Canadian market had limited access to 25th anniversary Joes, then I pay a visit to Vancouver and I'm swimming with them! Still no Firefly (will have to resort to e-bay for that one) but this week alone I've spent the food budget and picked up Lady Jaye, the double-knife Snake Eyes, a couple of Vipers, Wild Bill, Spirit, the Crimson Twins, the AWE Striker and the HISS Tank!

Since then I've gotten Wild Bill, gung ho, scarlett, snakes eyes with swords, snakes eyes in an parka, Spirit Iron Knife, Duke with jet pack(like in the cartoon movie!), Baroness in blue outfit, Major Bludd, Cobra Hiss Tank with driver, Roadblock version 2, Hiss tank driver, Snow Job, Armored Cobra commander, Cobra Viper, Rock N' Roll, Lt. Torpedo, And both of those target exclusive Joe vehicles with figures. *phew. takes an breath*.

Does anybody think we'll get an single packed Doc at some point? I want him but i don't like this proof of purchase junk. I mean, we've got single packs of everybody who's been in those 5 packs so why not Doc?
