    Hello. Just wanted to know where is the best place to buy GI Joe's online. More specifically, the DTC Line and new 25th Anniversary.

    Also, a little side question: Are the new 25th Anniversary Joe's going to be sold in regular retail stores?

    I've actually gotten all of my dtc from hasbrotoyshop, and if you pay close attention, they sometimes have awesome deals. matter of fact, you probably missed the boat, but like 2 weeks ago they had the dtc stuff on clearance. figures were $3 max, and the most expensive vehicle was $10-15.

    other than that, I'd check out bigbadtoystore.

    oh, I think the 25th line is going to be a mass retail release. check out forums.yojoe.com for more info, though. they're pretty nice over there.

    Thanks for the info, bro. Yeah, I actually just received my order from HTS. I bought the big rolling base(forgot the name), another vehicle, and two figures. Getting something that is $40 for $10 sure feels good! Did they have more stuff in stock when this sale started? I hate always being late to these sales....lol

    I picked up some 25th figures at TRU today. The JOE 5-pack, the COBRA 5-pack, Snake eyes v2 single and Storm shadow v2 single. They look awesome.

    BBTS has (But maybe only for preorder) the battle packs. I was never certain if Canada will get any of the giJoe stuff so I figure it is a good deal.

    I bought the Cobra pack(I would've bought both packs, but they're $30 each!) and The Cobra Officer. That figure, Cobra Commander, and Flint come one to a case, so they're kinda short packed. This was at my TRU, btw.

    I went with BBTS for my 25th Anniversary figures and HTS for the DTC stuff. Some of the DTC figures are going to be hard to find but BBTS has some. You could wait on the 25th Anniversary stuff to hit retail but if you are in an area like me, only a few Wal-Marts and two or three K-Marts within a 100 mile radius, then I would go with BBTS for them. Also have you seen the Viper Pit set? That is one of Hasbro's best Joe ideas in years.

    It is a set of six Cobra Vipers, 5 with silver face plates and 1 with gold. It was released last year but they can still be found at TRU and some online stores which is surprising since it is a great troop builder set. Here is a link to the set on BBTS. It is in stock.

    Has anyone found the 25th Anniversary figures at Walmart or Target? I work at TRU, so I've been buying what I can from there.

    I got my 25th Anniversary figures from Wal-Mart a couple of weeks ago, but they must have ordered only a case or so. I have yet to see anymore there.

    Yeah, but I post on here a lot more. And there is a lot more traffic on this site. So, I thought I'd post the thread here.

    Starting this week I have seen the 25th stuff at two of my local Targets. I found individual figures and both the Cobra and Joe box sets. :)

    Cool, thanks for the info, man. :thumb 


    Btw, I hadn't gone to HTS for a couple days. And when I did last night, I saw that they put up new listings for some of the older DTC GI Joes for their sale. And I see that they're all "Out of Stock", except for the R.H.I.N.O., which I already bought for that awesome price.

    Did I miss out on all the newly listed stuff in those few days, or does HTS put up the listings with "Out of Stock" first, then replenish what they have and update it to say "Add To Cart"?

    Please tell me I didn't miss out....:(

    digital-toys.com is where i was able to find my cobra pack for a cheaper than e-bay price, since we're probably not going to get them in retail stires here in canada.
