    I have yet to see them at a store, same goes for the single packs. I was glad HTS had them for sale at SDCC or else I would still be looking for them.

    I saw one set today at my local Kmart. It has a little GI Joe logo that sings the theme song when you push the star in.

    Pretty cool, but I'm not into 'Joes.

    Me neither, there just one of those toy lines I really wish I got into.
    My stores are pretty well stocked so I might find them.

    i managed to see a set of both only once, which i passed on since i really only want one figure from each one....and speaking of that, does anyone know of any places that are selling the figures from the boxes seperately? (besides toywiz, that is)

    I've only seen the Joe box once, and the singles once. Cobra eludes me.

    There are two Targets nearby and both have half empty toy aisles so maybe I can catch some of these if they even stock them at these particular stores.
