    I was having trouble getting my orders to go through @ target. Finally figured out my VPN was messing with their cart software, turned it off, and got an order in. Bullet dodged.

    Now that these are getting easier to find, I wonder how many of the people who rage-quit the line will be quietly coming back...

    I was gonna say something similar. The thrill of the hunt wasn't there for these. Finding them didn't fill me with superiority this time

    Lol! Yeah I ordered them and then was looking at the pics in detail afterwards. Breaker doesn't even come with any other weapons and is supposed to use the Gat from the RAM as his handheld? Would have been a great opportunity to give him the ARAH laser rifle. Anyways, I'm getting it for the RAM and get a cannon fodder figure to go with it. Barbeque was never one of my favorites but WTH, adds some color to the shelf.

    Great that orders seem easy again but now my concern is what happens when Crimson Guards, BATS and Trouble Bubbles are also CI and we can only get one? :D

    @Slave IV - If the Crimson Guards get made, then at least two for my collection. If and when Serpentor gets made, then he's got extra backup guards (and if Cobra Commander doesn't piss him off in the meantime).

    Thinkin' I should get another Breaker while the getting is good. Figure a head swap and minimal tweaks can turn Breaker into another of the OG13. And who couldn't use an extra RAM?

    Crimson Guards and BATS are my favorite Cobra troops and I have to get at least a few of each.

    Yeah, this RAM is basically a troop building set. I'm not gonna do it but I can see others getting a bunch and using Breaker as a "Grunt".

    Well, unless you got an order in at Pulse and Target the only way to get a 2nd one at the moment will be when he hits store shelves. Unless you have multiple target accounts. I guess that is a thing, but would be a huge hassle.

    Saw a Classified sticker book in the clearance section of a Walmart out the way last night for under a buck. Didn’t buy it but looked through it to see if there was anything new. Maybe 1 sticker based on Cobra Storm Shadow art we may have not seen but the design wasn’t any different from what we saw last year. The stickers are simplified drawings based on the classified branding art shown at gijoe.com and on the boxes.

    Cobra Storm Shadow’s look is pretty much a modern take on 1984 Storm Shadow, even down to weapon placement on the backpack. Since it’s 1 of the only classified designs we’ve seen early on through art but have yet to see in the toyline, I think it would be good to include an alternate head sculpt based on the 1984 look. Less Mortal Kombat, more…simple. Can’t hurt as it’ll kill 2 birds with 1 stone and might as well throw in something extra given that the figure isn’t out yet. Maybe even the masked head sculpt from the Snake Eyes Origins Storm Shadow figure might work, so long as the paint matches.
