    Big weekend for me...

    Actually found a couple of Rattlers so I picked one of those up. Haven't cracked it open yet but man... this thing looks so dope. I gotta find some space.

    Picked up a TRU Crimson Guard pack and the Night Watch 5-pack.

    Also ran across something I thought was odd... At a Target, I found 1 and only 1 new figure, a Croc Master (Which I picked up) but that was the only sign of new figures. Then 2 days later at a different Target I found a single Cobra Flint. WTF? Were there revision cases or something? Very odd that these would be the only things left. Ah well. I'm happy, just thought it was odd. :D

    For some reason someone around me doesn't like the Cobra Flint since thats all I found left at my Target also a Cobra Flint and at K.B.s only Cobra Flint and Pilot Scarlett then on to my Walmart I found all of wave 11 except someone took the Bazooka Trooper,Paraviper and the Eel and all I wanted was the Eel.Looks like its BATS all over again with the Eels and even harder to get them with the holiday shopping.When you do open the Rattler the stickers are crappy and eventually start to peel off especially around the missiles

    Boo on the stickers... Should I just invest in some Reprolabel style stickers? Anyone else had sticker issues?

    Came up with a Para Viper and Bazooka Trooper last night at the same Target that had the lone Croc Master over the weekend. Makes me think someone had them hidden and they were discovered. Mine now sucka! :D

    Finally found some "new" Joes yesterday. I was beat to everything outside of one lone Cobra Flint, but there were 4 B.A.T.s to choose from. Also grabbed the Deep-Six/Rock 'n Roll comic pack since I wasn't planning on buying the Sharc.

    Just hit a Wal-Mart. Picked up the old ass Dreadnok Comic 2 pack and scored a couple basic Cobra Troopers.

    Also came across this wonderful piece of merchandise.

    That's a busted original Lampreys(I think, Hydrofoil Driver) and a Scarlett and some other various junk in the new Serpentor DVD pack. :(  There really are some piss poor people in the world.

    Anyone got a Loose complete Buzzer on the cheap? I need him to go with my other noks. Pm me if you do!

    That's what I was thinking. Problem is they seem to be the only ones with the older stuff I need to catch up on. I really hate even walking in the door. :(

    Then you should throw the first release in the garbage can. . .because he is garbage compared to the wave 11 version :)

    I just bought Zartan. Nice. Shame I couldn't find him last week for two bucks off. The only characters I get repeats of are two versions of each main Cobra character (except the twins and Serpentor...as I have zero desire for the DVD pack though if I ever bought it that Serpentor would be there) and Hawk, though I'm willing to break the rule for Duke and SE from the only two DVD sets I'm buying, PoD and Best of.

    Though there is only one character I will buy more then two of: Cobra Commander. I have the following:

    Original
    Hooded
    Comic Hooded
    Black

    I painted the original hooded version black to go with the Cobra Legion set.
