    Like I said, someone either has more money than sense or they're fucking with the seller.

    It’s bad poetry my friend.

    Damn I wonder if the regular version will come with more NERF’d(HA!) weapons

    I'm wondering that as well. Looking at my CI trooper and the Infantry trooper side-by-side, the differences are very minor. Like, I can barely tell they are different figures from several feet away. Hopefully that trend continues...

    Seriously the scalpers are just having a "Bluddy" good time with Major Bludd here on ebay, but damnit Hasbro cut your ties with Target and distribute this stuff to different retailers.

    It's not abnormal to see listings on eBay go insane for an item before wide release. Who knows how valid they are but if someone is really paying that much for a figure they can get a few weeks later for significantly less, go for it! Most of us including myself would consider it idiotic but different people have different resources and priorities. All I know is why oh why does it have to be a Target Exclusive...Regular release will have a backpack minus the rockets or some dumb shit like that.

    FUDGE....who else is gonna be in this ci wave with bludd? I never saw the last ci wave at all. This was my favorite line and has also somehow become the most frustrating one at the same time.

    I don’t think anything for Cobra Island beyond this Bludd has been unearthed yet.

    After I get the movie figures I already pre-ordered I think this six inch line of Joes can be something I completely ignore going forward. I'd rather finish filling in the holes in my 1/18th collection if I have to pay after market prices for big name characters. I mean seriously, who needs the hassle and frustration of this bullshit line.

    I wish they would use some of those awesome Nerf guns for figures.

    There were some huge guns they could have given Roadblock.

    Bidding is now over a thousand dollars. I think I'd ditch this line way before I paid $1000 for a single 6 in figure. I sure hope it's just bots driving the price up and not real human beings.

    Edit: Close to $2000 now...

    eBay B.S. aside...that is one badass looking figure! We should start placing bets on what WON'T be included in the wide release version. I'm guessing the peasant version will give up the dog tags and that revolver and will have a brighter deco like what's shown on the boxart.

    So which accessories are we ready to lose with Major Bludd? How low do we have to settle to appease those who think Joe collectors shouldn't deserve accessories, haha? Still bitter about the Infantry? You damn well bet.

    Thankfully it seems Hasbro is going to make good with how poorly CI Wave 1 and 2 was distributed, so I'm going to actually anticipate getting Bludd for retail prices or close to it.
