I have yet to see a single one in town, are they only available online?
I ordered mine online so I could get all of them. I've seen Storm Shadow and Snake Eye's with White Timber in store but that's all. Wal-Mart and Target had both of the figs. I'm hoping stores see how well they sell now so future waves are more accessible.
I look every time I go out (for the sightings forum, mostly... I don't have any interest in Joes) and I'm yet to see them.
I see them almost every day, at Target, TRU, and Walmart.
tru for me
Target and TRU.
TRU, Target, Wal-Mart
I have seen the battle packs a few times and saw all of the singles at a K-Mart, where I got both versions of Snake Eyes and a Cobra Officer, but have not seen many of the singles since that week. Mostly what I see are Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. I have seen a few hooded Cobra Commanders. I ordered my battle packs and a set of 5 singles from BBTS where I will order the wave 2 singles in a few weeks.
I ordered them online initially, but have since seen them at TRU several times, and a few at Walmart and a few at two different Targets. Check TRU early Friday morning, they seem to restock thursday night.
I've now seen singles and 5-packs at all of the Big 3. They still move fast b/c I go often enough to see them, go again and see that they're gone, and then there's more the next time..wash, rinse, repeat.
Target, TRU, Walmart, and K-Mart all have them around here.
What is this 'Kay marrt' you speak of?
We finally lost all our KBs too.
Unfortunately for me Toys R Us is about 90-100+ miles from me and my local Wal-Mart doesn't carry them. The nearest Wal-Mart with singles is 16 miles away and the nearest with battle packs is 30 or 45 miles away. If I could find wave 1 singles easier then I would wait for one of the Wal-Marts I go to on the weekend to stock them. Sometimes being in a small town surrounded by slightly bigger small towns sucks.
I've been seeing them at my local Targets.
I've seen the two sets of 5 packs and single carded ones at Target so far. Not TRU or Walmart though.
KB's don't carry G.I. Joe product anymore. I went to 4 of them in the last few months, and all 4 told me they don't carry the brand anymore.
That's odd because I saw Snake Eyes and Flint (25th) at a mall one here.
Maybe it's just an East Coast thing. Went to 3 here in Jersey, and 1 in New Hampshire when I was on vacation. Got almost the exact same responses.
"I'm sorry, we don't carry G.I. Joe anymore due to low sales volumes" or some such.
Which is fine anyway. I'd rather not pay a $2-$5 more than other stores for them.
I found all of the 25th Joes at a Kay-bee in the Ocean County Mall's KBtoys. The other KB stores I went to in NJ had a few figures and the boxsets too.
