    Earlier today the Viper that I ordered was scheduled to be delivered today saying it was in Cudahy,which is about 5 miles from my house. Tracking now says delivery by August 5th. FedEx is still better than my last experience with UPS tho.

    Sorry to hear that the Retro delivery isn’t holding up. Mine took forever to arrive so hopefully it’s just a matter of when and not if.

    Missed viper and ram... again. But I got a Baroness at least. Patience is a virtue but this line is pushing my limit. Vipers, beach head, and a ram are what I lack from ci.

    My very first Viper arrived this morning. It just looks so darn good. The legs are a bit floppy. The helmet pops onto the neck ok, but it can spin around freely (360 degrees) without any resistance, which is odd.

    Still, with Baroness’s arrival earlier this week, I now have a complete collection of everything released in the US thus far. It took over a year, but it was EBay-free and together, they look great.

    Thanks! All of the Targets here are undergoing remodeling so it may be a bit for me.

    My Viper just shipped.

    It took a LONG time, but Target is finally on track and appears to be staying there.

    That’s an awesome little Joe vehicle. I love how it can hold so many figures inside. Does it actually work well with the 25th molds?

    i literally ordered another Viper less than a minute ago, so try again if you’re still searching.

    I received my first of now four Vipers today. Kinda disappointed in the goggles, I thought Hasbro fixed this issue during the 25th anniversary releases but forgot the lessons they learned. Are we still adding a dab of super glue to hold the goggles in place or does anyone have a better solution?

    The goggles are not as bad as the 25th releases so I don’t even know if it’s really necessary to glue them in place.

    I was lucky to get a GI Joe Retro Collection Snake Eyes today! Hope to be lucky enough to also get Storm Shadow!

    I can’t believe how close I was to paying aftermarket for most of these figures! Enjoy the Viper! It’s a super nice figure.

    Anybody in the lower US want a Baroness with bike? I sliced the tape and slid it out before my bro told me already had a opened one for me.
