    Cancelled my snake eyes pack at BBTS and reordered it at TCP.

    I hope my Target get the Baroness, It woud be great to keep an eye out, I marked myself as needing one, I'm just worried cause the G.I. Joe Vehicle price tag isn't there anymore.

    Awesome. I got my Snake Eyes preorder in.

    So the Breaker/RAM and Barbecue are both Cobra Island Target Exclusives. When are they supposed to be showing up?

    If I'm remembering the stream correctly, all the CI stuff both new and old should be hitting in July (or now if your Baroness :p )

    More rubbery than the Roadblock I got, but no frozen joints so posing was easy.

    I ordered one of the Valaverse weapons packs to replace her Spear gun and Flint's breakdown pump shotgun. She'll get an assault rifle and Flint will be getting a pump with a pistol grip like he originally came with.

    So Hasbro announced a new Target-exclusive 6-in figure yesterday. I only just found out. I go to the site--still available. WTF? I'm honestly annoyed "it was so easy" after all the effort trying to get Joes... So if the issue isn't Hasbro or Target, what is it?

    I legit can't believe I'm saying this... but I'll wait for the Target reissue.

    On the more positive side, I went to sleep early cause I work nights... RIGHT before SE + Timber went up. Woke up, it was already sold out on Pulse... but still available on BBTS, so I managed to yoink a couple.
    I can honestly say I'm satisfied thus far with the course correction at Target. Yeah, they didn't fulfill my pickup order, but at least I had a chance at it. The process was right in line with what I hoped they would do to put a speedbump in front of scalper activity.

    We already saw with the Battlefront 2 debacle that the mouse don't fuck around when it comes to their image being tarnished by another party.

    I’m gonna go ahead and say the demand for Antoc Merrick is a lot lower than...just about anything. I’m pretty much one of the biggest Star Wars fans around and I didn’t even know this dude’s name until now. Did I order one? Sure, like I said I’m one of the biggest SW fans around and it’s cool to have a pilot figure other than Luke or Poe. But compared to a Cobra Troop builder or...almost anything and definitely any of the CI Joe figures except Roadblock, I’d rather have the option other than “Antoc”.

    So..Bludd picked up at Target and on his way north. I was supposed to have the one from pulse today but it now shows delivery date unavailable but it is in Chicago so it shouldn't be much longer. Once that one arrives I'll have another Bludd available if you're still looking.
