    Just want to know who else have been collecting the new figures that celebrate the 25th anniversary of GI JOES from Hasbro. My bro & I both collect them, and so far I have Storm Shadow (my fave), Cobra Commander, and Flint (soon). I won't collect that many figures but they are pretty awesome.

    The figures are indeed very nice but the plastic used seems too flimsy that I'm afraid I'll break their arms.

    Is anybody else having a tough time with their stiff joints? I read that if you dip the part of the joint on the figure that's stiff into a cup of hot (not boiling) water it loosens them up.

    Personally I don't wanna risk it.

    That can work. Heating up plastic allows a bit of flex, but you cant over heat it. I havent had that bad of a time with the tight joints. After you get the initial "snap", they move fine.

    You should still be able to find wave 3 at retail. 1&2 may be a little harder or impossible to find. The newer waves, 4&5 are hitting now. Ive also been able to find the 5 packs at TRUs. There are 2 waves of comic 2 packs also hitting the shelves currently.

    Big Bad Toy Store is a place where alot of collectors get their figs, if you dont want to hunt.

    You can also preorder the future waves as well.

    BBTS? Depends. Sometimes they will get back in the older waves after they have run thru their initial shipment of preorders and open cases.

    Theyve been using the same molds for years until this wave. If you look at the many different series of Joes that have been put out over the years, alot of them are the same molds, just repainted or with new head sculpts. The purpose of the 25th line was to give us updated sculpts with the vintage feel.

    I do believe it is the highest price one on the aftermarket.

    Are there going to be any vehicles made? I'm actually working on getting a cobra army. I almost got flint but someone bought it before I did on BriansToys

    I just got Flint, Snakeyes/Stormshadow 2-pak, and a Cobra 5-pak. I'll probably get Lady Jaye next, but still undecided on Serpentor.

    There are going to be afew vehicles made. The first is going to be a Target exclusive H.I.S.S. Tank!

    There is also supposed to be a new Serpentor released later in the year based on his original design.

    For anyone interested, www.hisstank.com has uploaded several images from Toy Fair. They show the Target exclusive Hiss tank among many other new releases for this year.

    I just picked up the Armored CC and a CG today at WM. I was out "hunting" today and Joe is out in all the stores in full force. Problem is, they dont stay on the pegs long. However I must say the stores have been pretty good at keeping up with the demand.
