    I broke down and ordered Duke off amazon since he was only $18 and it was my last day of my Prime Membership. Duke will get here on my Bday!

    I found Duke in the wild. He and Roadblock. Just left with Duke. Snake Eyes will need some help with the army of Cobra in the coming months.

    Got Roadblock opened, minor adjustment much happier. Feel like less is more.

    Local Walmart said they had Snake Eyes (per Brickseek) but they are knee-deep in a major reset. Figure it'll be days before they're actually on shelves. (looked at endcaps, floor displays, pallets, and other aisles---if they're there, they're back in the storeroom)

    Wifey went to a Target in WA and asked about the new Joes, but they said that they will put them on the shelves on the release date. She didn’t find out which figure.

    Toys that remain in their packaging are not toys.

    Just not the ones I wanted...

    I plan on checking on Sunday (when they are street dated) and if not, I'll ask around for when they'll be put out.

    I wouldn't be real surprised, if a couple waves down the line, we see Wave 1 again, very similar to the original, but with all the gold (and allspark blue!) removed. (And would be nice if Scarlett was more tawny-tan, instead of YELLOW. It's kind of weird---a lot of characters they've tried to make more realistic over the years, but with her, they actually keep making her "brighter and more cartoony" every time it seems----the original figure, and the original toon, were quite drab--never bright school-bus YELLOW).

    If we got more realistic weapons, that'd be a nice bonus (especially for a "new" Wave 1 Roadblock)

    I caved and ordered from Chosen Prime. 130$ shipped for 5 figures is around 10$ more than I was paying for a full case of 6 at Dorkside. Sorry, but I can't wait any longer, at least not until November.

    I secured an extra Snake Eyes from my local comic shop for my 11 year old's birthday tomorrow. I've been working on brainwashing him into more of an action figure fan and less of a switch fan.

    Yeah but be careful. Dyed parts can easily stain any parts they touch. Rinse then (soak them) very well in ice cold water a bunch of times, and don't let it rub on any other plastic just in case. I had some parts dyed black in a fodder bin and they stained a ton of nice parts. Nothing covered in paint will dye, so either remove the paint, or leave it knowing it will remain it's original color.

    I love it! This way she can hold it in her arm, or show up to take it off dramatically, or even better, be given to another character as an extra head.

    Yesterday, people at HISStank reported some success at 2:38EST---and I just got Baroness/Beachhead/Trooper confirmed, seemed to work around 2:33EST. (30 and 31 past the hour were a no-go, Baroness showed up first---kinda glitched, was "available to pre-order" but wouldn't go into cart---tried trooper next, it worked, then Beach Head, then back to Baroness--and it let me check out with all 3)

    So--highly recommend trying just after 2:30AM EST.
