    Probably not consider there's really nothing new going on with the Retro figures since they're all just repacks from what I've seen. 6" has been a shot in the arm for GI Joe. Same as when they went from 12" to 3.75".

    Got Snake Eyes in the mail today. My first classified Joe. I’m smitten. This figure is everything I wanted from a detailed 6in Joe. I’m in on this line

    The best way to get Joe's is form a solid squad use priority, trade and courtesy.

    For sure. Look at this thread alone, the vast majority of the talk is 6" not 3.75. And that is the same on fwoosh too, they have multiple threads for the classifieds and not much to see for the 3.75. It seems many dcuc legends guys were more than happy to jump on the joe transport since 6" was their preferred scale anyway.

    Very nice. I looked online and it appears there's only one Target within 20 miles that's carrying her..and out of stock :(  Went out yesterday hoping to find a Beachhead but only found one Roadblock. Not having much luck with Cobra Island in my area.

    Starting to see Baroness just outside of my immediate area on Popfindr. Do we believe she will be available in further quantities later? My wife asked me to slow down the toy spending again so I’m trying to be careful. Wish I could easily explain how August and September are expensive months.

    She came up sporadically throughout this week at a few local targets. I missed her twice this week by a matter of minutes from what the employees said.

    4 showed at a Target that was farther out this morning but it would have been a stretch to be there at 8 and still make it into work at a decent time.

    I checked out popfinder when I got to work and 4 were showing at the closest Target to me. I was fortunate enough to be able to drop what I was doing and go grab one.

    "The sun shines on a dog's rear-end every once in a while." or so the old saying goes.

    A hair dryer for 15 seconds will get it done.

    Finally have my Baroness, and she's awesome.

    Just need Gung-Ho and the Red Ninja to have a complete set (save for CI Roadblock).

    Funny you should say that. Although Popfindr showed no Baronesses in my area, I still went on a little run today. Didn’t find her, however I did see these guys.

    Cool. I have Gung Ho coming in on Amazon, and two Red Ninjas pre-ordered on BBTS.

    I just ordered the Valaverse Condor accessory pack. I need that green helmet with night vision on Beachhead.
