I wanted to get that set for the uzi for SE. Too bad they messed up the handle.

Here's SE with the same uzi from a TRU set but with the proper handle. It stretches out the hand though.



Here's RB with an M249 from the same line from TRU (Soldier Force). It seems a little small.

So, I broke down and got the Hasbro Pulse version as I wanted SE to have some color contrast, just like how his original 1985 one was.  I mix matched and made a second Arashikage ninja out of the spare parts.

So, they actually did make to BC.  I called a store and they told me they got it but sold out on the day it arrived.  The lady told me two stores still showed stock.  One was too far for me.  For the other one, the system showed 6 so I checked it out. 

They weren't helpful at all.  The guy just told me system is wrong and they haven't had G.I.Joes in years, even though I told him the ones showing in their system were just released.

So, I guess there is an unopened case in the Toys R Us that is hidden somewhere.  I hate that cause then they'll never re-order.

Same thing with SW BS.  One of the Walmarts by my has been showing 10 in stock for months, but they don't actually know where it is so they haven't restocked in months.

So apparently walmarts in canada are starting to get the retro figures. wave 2 of all things. No wave 1 yet but wave 2 shows up. Hasbro hasnt even revealed wave 2 yet further illustrating how inept they are with distribution and marketing.

Dont know if I can be bothered with these. Mostly repacks or semi-new figures. Feels very "been there done that" from the 25th anniversary. If I see them on the shelf I'd probably get at least a couple but I'm still not sold.

Roadblock has the classified head and a vest so is not like the original. Scarlet has weird gloves. Feels like they dont quite know what they're trying to do with this line.

And being walmart exclusives is such a turn off. Collecting has never been more of a chore with tonnes of exclusives and covid limiting my willingness and frequency for toy hunting. The hunt has never been very fun in my opinion but now even less so.

Anyway rant over. Good luck to those who really want these. And good luck tracking down wave 1. Maybe they'll show up at winner's or something!

There is hope for the Target wave of Classified figures to show up at TRU cause I just saw the Target Exclusive Black Dino Charge Power Ranger at TRU today.

The article I read (admittedly a fan-written piece) said they're 4" figures instead of 3.75"? Are they out of scale with the originals & 25th ann ones???

The modern Joes are more 4" than 3.75" but it has been since the 25th Anniversary Joes. The new Walmart ones are mostly repaints of POC and 50th Anniversary ones.

Ah ok. My vintage were all gone by the time I started collecting the 25th ann line but I wound up with lots of those... never pieced together they had increased the scale slightly. Thanks.

Just read on another board baroness with bike has been sighted at TRU. not sure if it's legit. Also saw online that Hasbro confirmed the target stuff is coming to TRU in October. So I'd keep an eye out.

That baroness looks amazing. Especially with destro in the photos on hisstank. I just wish she didn't come with that ugly bike. The cobra trooper and beachhead look pretty great too.

Why are they $33? Shouldn't they be $30?

Anyone know if these are out in Canada? Would love to get a set or 2. Supposedly they've started showing up in the US. I dont even know who carries this brand in Canada. And if Jada toys are easy/hard to find at retail.
