    I figure Baroness is the most "important" one to get, if you like the helmeted head option. The mass-release version likely won't include it, since she'll probably be sold alone, with no motorcycle. (I'm kinda suspecting we may get a very similar Beach Head a little later, that is a slightly deeper green, with a "fully ribbed" balaclava, vs the "mouthguard/faceplate" style this one has) (is there a term for this particular type of Balaclava? A quick google didn't give me anything, or even any exactly like this figure has)

    And hey--if you got Baroness alone, that should still count for free shipping. So you can save 5 secs next time, and try for just trooper and Beach Head (or two troopers) and they too would be free shipping, so no extra costs with split orders...

    I love the effort they’ve been putting into photos of late, especially the classified ones.

    Curious myself. I see a lot of Targets in upstate NY, with the DCPI of 087-16-3310 with numbers of 6, however a lot are down to 2 or 3. Exclusive or Wave 1 like Walmart had?

    You forgot to kill a rooster and sprinkle the blood in a circle. Blood circle is the most important step...

    God, I am really on the fence on Cobra Commander, I think he has some cool accessories and the big ass cape, I even like that G.I. Joe Retaliation color scheme. My only problem is I don't know If I need a second Cobra Commander with my soon to come Regal version.

    But Richard Hasbro demands the ritual be completed perfectly and completely. Elsewise, no 6 inch Joes for anyone.

    The dilemma — go for the Star Wars Endor set or the Cobra Commander first.

    So far more or less. Pulse exclusives tend to stay up for awhile, and I was able to secure an ecto prime fairly easily last year, which is surprising since I screwed up my payment method and had to reenter it. I wouldn't say immune, but definitely safer than on sites for walmart and target

    Sometimes there just ain’t time to casually stroll through, adding items, and get to the check out before something is sold out.

    A couple days back I was able to secure an order on Amazon for all five of Wave 1.

    Despite only Destro being an, we’ll email you when we get an estimated delivery date. He’s so far the only one to ship, the others are suppose to be here between Monday & Wednesday :rock

    I don’t think so unless it’s something mostly undesirable. Things like the Hulk and Boba Fett exclusives lasted seconds last year. I’m still pissed off about missing the Fett even though I was ready and constantly refreshing both times it opened. I know the Hulk didn’t last either because it was sold out right after I checked out.

    If they don’t split the release days, it’s going to be fucked for people who are fans of more than one franchise.
