    Recently i've been stocking up on the 2 packs. I now have ripper/torch, catp. ace/wild weasel, xamot/tomax, and scarred cobra office versus iron grenadier(i think that's the one). I also got the new cobra infantryman. I"m still trying to find sg. flash, armored cobra commander, Iron grenadier destro, snowjob, and torpedo.

    The scarred Cobra officer comes with an unmasked Crimson Guardsman.
    Its been announced that there is going to be another comic 2 pack that includes an Iron Grenadier and Destro, so if I dont find the single, Ill just get the Destro with the 2 pack. In my area the 2 packs seem to be moving real slow as opposed to the single figs which seem to go pretty quickly.

    Over the last two weeks I've picked up 4 two packs and 6 single packs. And I've only saw four other single figures I didn't get. But in my area the 2 packs also out number the single packs. Last weekend alone I would say the 2 packs out numbered the single figures 3-1, if not more.

    I just got back from TRUs today and, man, were they stocked up. I picked up my IG Destro. They had multiples of him and CG's.

    Our stores up here in canada just get in 2 cases of figs so it kinda sucks.
    In good news, hasbro is rushing wave 6 out here with the american cards instead of the crappy canadian ones.

    p.s. I got wave 6 :)

    My girlfriend picked me up Shipwreck and Cobra Commander for Christmas.

    And just the other day I managed to snag Torpedo.

    I just need them to release Wet-Suit and Deep-Six and I'll be happy.

    Maybe a better looking Duke figure would be nice to have though, he's always been one of my faves.

    I lied, I didn't see the Spirit, Wild Bill or variant Duke figures from wave 7.

    I'm 22 years old and I'm going to go broke buying G.I. Joes....

    I've been going to various Targets, Walmarts, K-Marts and they always have tons of Stalkers and Buzzers, I don't know how the they sell the other figures out so quickly.

    Toys R'Us seems to never have any of the single figures, I always see either the Cobra or Joe 5-packs, the only time I saw any was during Christmas shopping.

    I've got a good deal of the 25th so far......now I'm just waiting for new stuff to drop in my area.....

    The articulation on these things is fan-tabulous......but I find that I'm using them more for display than in my dio-stories....can't seem to get away from my O-Ring goodness....

    Hmm.. If these things are in stock in Ohio, I guess I should go there and look.. Southwest PA has nothing... everywhere I go is either still on wave 2 or sold out.

    Im in NE Ohio as well. Youngstown area. Where are you from?



    My local TRUs has received in their exclusives and have been stocking pretty regularly. All the figs have been pretty easy to find. I cant believe how common the CG's are now.

    I wish I had the imagination for dio-stories. :( All my scenarios are either A) Dudes pointing guns at each other; or B) Dudes collapsed in a pile because they all fell down and I'm too tired to fix it.

    Guess I spoke too soon, since I posted I couldn't find anything, I seem to be on a roll. I've picked up the twins, Serpentor, Duke, Roadblock, and Destro. Wish I could afford more, but 3 kids eat up alot of income. Luckily, my 5 yr old saw the few I got and is now an official Joeite! I can't wait to get him over to my mom's and show him the Defiant. BTW, I'm in the west side of the Cleveland area.

    'm gonna likely e picking up the twins tomorrow myself. Finally found a Serpentor today, my girlfriend just laughed at me, but I never managed to get one when I was still a kid. I must admit that I couldn't stop smiling for two weeks the only single figures I could find were Stalker and Buzzer.

    By the way, in Canada we can only get these in specific comic stores, and sparingly at best (I have not even seen the Crimson Twins, Firefly and Stalker).

    Am I correct in thinking in the U.S. you can get them at Toys R Us, Wal Mart, Target etc? :mad:
