    Walmarts carry them but they usually sell out within a few hours.

    I'm not a big fan of GI Joe but I liked Cobra Commander's design so I bought the Cobra set at my Toys R Us. I gave the rest to my cousin but Commander is sitting on Megatron's shoulder right now.

    But anybody else having a problem with the helmet not staying on well?

    I usually find the 25th Joe toys at Target. Walmarts and TRUs around here in the Frisco Bay area barely or don't have them at all so far.

    I initially ordered them from BBTS. Then, when I heard that TRU stocks new stuff on Thrusday nights, I checked them out early Friday, and found some at retail. A bit later I have found some at Target as well. At this point I have all 15 that have been released that I know of. I will post pics but I am backed up on opening things since I have little space open at the moment to actually display them.

    Beak those are awesome. I wish I had that kind of skill.

    not being a Joe fan im thinking of picking up the cobra set soon to mix in with my g!'s.
    but i was wondering if anyone knows if either destro or the baroness are coming out in single packs?
    and maybe a list of current and upcoming releases would be cool if anyone has it.

    Or check out www.hisstank.com, they're kind of a sister-site to TFW and they should have all the info or at least links to the info you seek.

    I've seen the 5 packs in every Wal-mart in my area, they don't look like they're flying off the shelves.

    I haven't seen a Joe 5-pack in ages. Strangely the Cobra 5-packs are warming the shelves here. Even more strange is that the case ratio is 2:1 Joe:Cobra

    I've got everything so far (including Gold and Silver "Pimp Daddy" Destro exclusives) except the damned elusive black timber SE.

    Thanks. I think you’re going to plots when you see my next two if I can get them to work, one of them I’m having some trouble with.

    since there's now an "official" 25th thread, maybe I can get this question answered. I just picked up a cobra officer, and was wondering these two questions about how to make him better:

    1. what would be the best way to get his arms to bend a full 90 degrees? if I push REALLY hard they will, but I'm afraid some plastic around the elbow is gonna break.

    2. would there be a good way to shave part of his hip piece down to allow him to be able to fully sit down all the way?
