    Red Cobra Commander for the win, I don't even really like the color blue lol

    Yeah that one is [email protected]$$ and I need it, I'm starting to question if I should get a Cobra Trooper and a Viper as one of characters instead of like troop builders, essentially make them special, but do I really feel like painting a Trooper, Viper's easy since he already has a lit of red on him, ugh these are the thoughts that keep me awake at night

    So I impulse-ordered Cobra Island Roadblock; I like his look a lot, even though he doesn't look like classic Roadblock (I'm a fairly casual Joe fan, so I'm not sure if it's referencing a particular version of Roadblock). So for the more knowledgeable Joe fans out there, who know more of the characters, is there a fitting repurpose for this guy? Any widely-accepted alternate identity for him?

    Some people have just mentally re-processed him as Heavy Duty, which isn't a bad fit.

    Cool, thanks! Was wondering if folks were doing that. Works as well as anyone, I guess! Heavy Duty has had lots of different looks over the years.

    Bless Agabyss and bless the man in California with more money than patience willing to spend $130 on an in-hand Snake Eyes and Timber set that will be readily available in a couple months

    Wonder if they'll still hit Pulse soon? Separate stock, so I remain optimistic about it. Great to see so many people finding what they've been hunting for, with relatively little trouble. Even better to see so many members here and on other sites helping each other out, even with 1 per limits. You all deserve a high-five for your efforts!

    Nope, Zartan has a glorious mane of long brown hair.
    I will not be convinced otherwise.



    Heavy Duty

    Eyeshield/Sun glasses, Big weapons unit/Big Cannon, Backwards cap/ Do-rag, Ripped of sleeves/Sleeveless shirt, Facial hair/Facial hair, and that tattoo seems more like Heavy Duty than Roadblock.

    And Heavy Duty always had some futuristic cannon so the giant nerf gun even works out for him.

    My guess is that Pulse is also available to international buyers? Canada at least I think. But Target.com is solely USA based and not open to anyone beyond these shores.

    Try the Target app. Firefly is coming into and out of stock. With the app, you can save something for later, making it easier to complete the purchase if you get intermittently cart-jacked.

    Scored a Firefly! When I saw it was available I instabuyed. A second later and it was gone again. I usually look for something to get the free shipping but not this time.
