    That's a solid looking bunch! Risers will sort that out for sure.

    Nice set of bounty hunters hiding underneath too! I've still got to pick up a 4LOM and Dengar some day to finish mine off, but Dengar seems to have gotten as pricey as Rex these days.

    I like the sculpt and deco a lot but the ab crunch looks weird when used(the body not only bends there but shifts forward horizontally unlike the other figures, makes it look like Snake Eyes took a bat to Cobra Commander after his family got killed in a car accident by Cobra Commander’s brother).

    Yeah that Renegades 4pack was pretty awesome, all 4 of the figures were good, I loved that little sub-line when it was out. They could have went deeper with figures for that show, that's for sure. A Coyote has always been at the top of my want list. Heck, I bought that whole SDCC crossover box set just for the Renegades Roadblock figure.

    The problem is the scalpers know they can make a shit ton of money on these and buy up all the stock. Target then craps a ring around themselves and either can’t or refuse order more. Before the Cobra Island figures I had very little problem finding a lot of the excluives at Target. I remember the Black series AT ATC Driver, The Stormtrooper executioner,Bespin Leia, and the Solo Chewbacca. I have not seen one Star Wars figure on the shelves. I know this is a Joe thread but I am making an example.

    I know a guy at Target and had asked him if he could help me out with Cobra Island and he told me he couldn't buy on the clock but would check for me on his break time. He couldn't get anything but his buddy that stocked on second shift would apparently "stock" them before he left then go back in the morning to buy what he stocked. I'm sure the reissue situation will go much the same way. Fuck Target

    That's awesome! Thanks!

    Mr. H, great looking bunch of Renegades. I loved the show, and how they went full "A-Team" on the opening. I thought the characters were a nice way to update and change a few things.

    The infuriating thing is the guy probably has no interest for GI joe. Just to put them on Eprey for 10x the price.

    Having no idea how to use the spreadsheet, could someone put me down as looking for Classified Major Bludd? The way things are going I’ll never see him in store as the 3 closest Targets to me are all around 50 miles away and in opposite directions.

    I'll trade you. I have upwards of a dozen within a 30 mile radius here in SoCal, and NONE of them have ANYTHING.
    I'd rather be shot down by just a couple then by a bunch.
