Viper and Firefly have hit TRU now. Just got mine today. They have a limit of one each. I wanted 2 Vipers but am glad they enforce the limit cause if they didn't, I doubt I would have gotten them. I got the last Viper and there was one Firefly left at the store I went to.

Not the perfect topic, but in recent Joe news I saw cheap looking Duke & Cobra Commander 3.75" figures at Wal Mart today. Duke looked like dollar store material with a big screaming mouth & CC looked like the original version - light blue with battle helmet.

Those are Walmart exclusives.  G.I.Joe Retro line.  They release 3 vehicles as well, AWE Striker, HISS, and a new FANG.

Mainly only been able to find vehicles.  Saw the figures only twice.  Roadblock and CC at different stores.  I picked up Roadblock and reassessorized him.



Gave the retro RB gear to the 25th one I had.

Not classified but they revealed all the super 7 joes. It's not really for me.

I was never big on the cartoon (comic was so much better), and the cartoon designs were simplistic due to the need for animating them. Why you would then make action figures to emulate simplified designs of action figures I will never understand. Seems back-asswards to me. And doing 5POA on a line that was super articulated in 1982 seems backwards to me as well. I think they'll look okay carded but out of package... yuck.

Having said that I may pick up Kwinn (ironically a comic character done in a toon based line), since it would be nice to have a single carded Kwinn on vintage style card. Kwinn, Dr. Venom and Billy in GI Joe are like Sim Aloo in the vintage collection. They get no love, so seeing Kwinn was a pleasant surprise out of left field!

For the ultimates they just look way too simplistic and flat for a 7 inch scale figure. I'm tempted by Snake Eyes as he's my favorite (if way overdone) character, but its a lot of money to add a novelty ugly duckling type figure to the collection.

Anyway, these aren't for me. Partly disappointed but also partly relieved as I don't need more stuff or to spend more $$$!

I am on the fence with these. I wish the 3.75" line had more articulation.
