My thoughts exactly. I am not sure who Cobra Island RB is but he’s a Special Operator.
I’m tempted to repaint RB into badass bearded Navy SEAL Tracker.
There is no escape, mwahahaha!
They look to be slightly taller than a standard Marvel Legends figure (more like Roadblock's height). Juts google image search "valaverse action force" and a size comparison image should show up quickly.
Thanks, the comparison I found reflected what you said, but also claimed they would be downscaled a bit in production to be about the same size as legends figures, which should work out perfectly on average
Ah, alright then. They should fit into GI Joe nicely.
I think a lot of the characterizations with GIJoe have always come down the the included weapons and gear. For CI RB, a different weapon (newer than has already been released) would do a lot to establish a new character. I’m still brainstorming what I would pair him with but I’ve been leaning towards something more tech based given the ear piece, glasses, and beard.
Agreed, and some of the figures would make for a nice 3rd faction sort of setup
My local Target had a sign up, today (didn't grab a pic):
DUE TO HIGH DEMAND
G.I. JOE FIGURES WILL BE LIMITED TO
ONE PER CUSTOMER
GI JOE SALE DATE 8/14
Sad part is, somebody bought the whole case of troopers, the day they came in. We definitely have a scalper problem, already, but I guess they're tired of people asking (and arguing/acting like a-holes) about them.
oh that's just IW CA's head lol i kid i kid
it would take me at least a year to get my beard that long, they aren't infitrating Cobra Island, they're living there at this point lol
fixed that for you lol
Had CI Beachhead in hand after a worker brought it out from the back for me. His manager however told him he cant sell it til August 14...
I found two Classified Cobra Troopers today... on eBay.
I live rural and I am not fucking around with driving 50+ miles round trip to see if I "get lucky".
Good luck to all of you.
EDIT: Make that 4
It’s good to see some enforcement.
Gonna be really fun arguing with twats about the new date.
Shouldn't they have gotten an email about the new date? Like yesterday?
I think Target is getting tired of the Scalpers, they made me put something back today when i went to get 2 of a particular item
I might skip the Beachhead altogether if the price never drops. I expect a more accurate colored repaint in the future.
Kinda want to skip that Gung-Ho too hoping they give him a nice teal repaint somewhere in the near future.
The biker Baroness might get skipped as well if the prices stay crazy. Hmmm... How bad can they eff up the deco on a single release?
Can’t say I disagree. I don’t live in a rural area but it’s not exactly robust and there is one Target within 100 miles. There isn’t a damn thing there. All these exclusives do is make it impossible for customers to get things and get fucking annoyed. I’d rather not shop at Target or Walmart for these Exclusives and it encourages me to go to Amazon for everything I need even more out of spite.
I saw a Trooper in a worker’s cart at my local Target and asked if I could buy it. He told me all Joes have an 8/14 street date. I just bought Destro there without issue two days ago...lol... They just pulled them all from the shelves. I was friendly and didn’t bother trying to talk him into it. And now I don’t have to worry about getting there early on Saturday to try and score one...lol...
I think fandom has to be on one side of the street date issue. We can’t be in favor of it when it blocks scalpers and then against it when it keeps us from buying when they’re in stock. Personally I hardly ever buy multiples and I’d be in favor of a strict 1 character per customer limit so that you could get a wave but can’t take an entire case. I don’t think street dates work because it just ends up with people showing up to the store at 8am which not everyone can do either. I more often favor online ordering now. Less hassles (generally) and much more convenience (when it works out).
