    Something that just occurred to me is that if Barbecue is on the the table, that would seem to bode well for a lot of these other characters people have mentioned. I guess I wouldn't call Barbecue a deep cut, but there are certainly higher profile characters we haven't seen yet. I forgot about Doc...we need Doc.

    Shockwave.

    I’m also waiting for Low-Light, Dusty and Crimson Guards because I already have guns for them.

    Shockwave is on my, "Would love to have, but isn't a must," list. I think he would look fantastic updated for the Classified line.

    My top five joes are Hawk, Covergirl, Shipwreck, Stalker, and Spirit.

    Completely agree and hoping they aren’t too far off but loaded with accessories like the POC versions. IMO this is modern warfare and I fall into the camp of modernizing the designs so let’s get Mainframe out and make sure this “Modern Army” is equipped!

    Why does Stalker look like he is pissed for how much bigger than Classified version is?

    For what it's worth, I've been seeing these at Walgreens for about a week.

    So, if you've got a rewards card with them, you can probably use one of those coupons that earns you $5 on a $20/$25 purchase or $8 on a $35 purchase to get some type of deal, when there's not a specifically advertised one.

    Also, Ross has had the 6pack discounted to $3.50 or less for months.

    But seriously, I try to stick with something similar or updated compared to what they originally came with. A Sniper rifle for Low-Light, FAMAS for Dusty and a rifle with bayonet for the Crimson Guard. All from Little Armory.

    I loathe FedEx. The Breaker that was scheduled to arrive tomorrow is now updated to Wednesday. F-ers. Also looks like the Wreck-Gar schedule for today is going to be tomorrow or Monday but that’s on Amazon and USPS.

    Breaker story!

    I was going to be traveling Thursday, figured on hitting 2-3 Targets. Checked Popfindr Wednesday, every Maine store in my area's got at least 6. Checked again before leaving Thursday, Topsham store inventory has gone down - leads me to think it's on the shelf. I get there, there's an empty stock case on the floor in the aisle.

    And another unopened case on the stocking cart nearby. I had to find an employee - scarce - to open the box, but hey! I'm done.

    All I want are five unannounced Joes (plus Master of Disguise Zartan), and I think I can walk away happy with a complete collection:
    Storm Shadow (classic)
    Destro (Iron Grenadiers; this was "my" Destro as a kid, and I still contend it's a much better look for him)
    Chuckles (star of the best G.I. Joe story ever)
    Sci-Fi
    Lifeline

    I've been waiting for the inevitable grenadier destro, though I hope it sort of gets an update, I guess more of a tweak its a slick look but I kind of like the subtle touches they are doing with the classified figures to tweak them to modern times (well the ones they do it with anyway). Honestly, just keep the sword and cape style and I'll probably be happy with any changes they wanna do

    Well, poop. The two Targets near me showed 12 and 18 Breakers last night. This morning, before opening, they both show 0. I call shenanigans. This is Cobra Island all over again. 30 Breaker, gone overnight without ever hitting the floor.
