    I dont think the viper ever came in stock for preordering if you are talking about the recent restock on cobra island stuff on target a couple of weeks ago.

    I guess that makes sense. Still a long lead time for shipping. I work in US and the material we sell comes from Turkey. It's about a 8 week turn around including production

    He was on preorder last night. It just wasn’t open. Now it says pre order sold out.

    Thanks for the snarky retort.

    It takes about a month on boat to get from Asia to the USA, then figure about another month or so for customs and getting to retailers distribution centers, then maybe a few weeks to another month to get from distribution centers to stores and consumers hands.

    Purrdee! I'm good with the regular release though. I'm going to show restraint and not go too deep into 6th scale.

    I wouldn't rule out more Vipers being available once they are actually in stock, but we'll see.

    Is that retro Snakeyes up on Walmart?

    Sounds like Snake Eyes Origins is being ripped apart by RT. If there is anything I hate more in a movie it is shaky cam and this one suffers from it.

    I was excited that Larry Hama had generally positive comments after having seen the movie but now I'm not so sure. It's a bummer.

    I have mad respect for Hama for what he created, but as a person, not so much. He will say anything for a check.

    Whoa, what did he do? I always loved him for G.I. Joe but I don't know anything controversial about him.
