:o :shock: :o :shock:

If I even amass 1/3 of that, I'd be one happy camper.

A big chunk of it was made possible by the 75% off clearance sales Target had on the Cobra Legions five-pack after the 2007 holiday season. Good times!

If you're a fan of the 25th Joes, run, don't walk (well actually, drive at a brisk pace :lol:), to Marshall's, Ross and TJ Maxx. They have tons of 25th Joes. Today I was able to pick up:

Cobra Diver X 2
Cobra Paratrooper X 2
Hard Master/Snake Eyes Comic Pack
Ram Cycle vs Cobra Flight Pod

They have tons of vehicles. I couldn't even begin to tell you how many different ones there were. I saw every 25th anniversary single except for Shipwreck. Which of course is the main one I was looking for. They had all the comic packs except for Tomax and Xamot (was that a retail release?). Of course that's one I was looking for as well. I actually had to stop myself from spending money. There's still about 3 or 4 vehicles I want to pick up. They also had Hall of Heroes Joes.

Great day for 25th Joe fans. Especially those who are late getting into the line like myself :mrgreen:.

Man, too bad I'm not a G.I.Joe collector anymore. I went to Marshals today, and it has basically become the G.I.Joe Store. Almost a whole aisle and endcap devoted to Gi. Joe toys. Sure, a lot of it was Rise of Cobra, but still a lot of great vehicles and 25th Ann. wave. Lots of Larry Hama style comic 2-packs. I almost picked up the Hardmaster/Snake Eyes 2 pack for $6.99 just for the filthy amount of accessories and because I like ninjas. I still might go grab one if the mood strikes me. I wish buying DC Mattel toys was like this.

I guess it's safe for me to say I'm fully vested now (or addicted if you prefer). Tonight I went back to Marshall's and TJ Maxx with a willing accomplice... My wife :D!! This way I could justify (with a clear conscience) spending more money. My haul this evening:

Frogman
Arctic Snake Eyes
Hall of Heroes Crimson Guard
ROC Snarler Cycle

If I keep going like this, I'm gonna have to go to some sort of meetings :lol:.

Looks like I'm the only one here showing any interest in the vast amount Joes showing up at the discount stores. Anyway, more for me I guess :D. Tonight I picked up:

Cobra Stinger
Cobra Trooper
ROC Deep Six

No, I'm still checking the discount stores frequently. Picked up some of the Wal-Mart-exclusive ROC two-packs at Ross the other night. They're $5.99, which is about half what they cost originally. Can't have too many Night Creepers. I also picked up a 25th arctic Snake-Eyes on clearance at Marshalls for two bucks to add to the Toys For Tots pile. Their small ROC vehicles have been marked down from $10 to $7 in the last week.

I cleaned out 2 different ross, big lots, tru express, and tj maxx in my area but now I am broke. I got all of them for my boys for christmas. I got 15 veichles, 8 HOH figures, 22 single carded, 5 comic packs, 5 5-packs (from tru and ebay), 3 7 packs (from BBTS), and 2 of the 5 mass device sets. So between all my GI Joe purchases they are getting 110 gi joe figures for christmas. I totally went over board and ticked my wife off but she will get over it. I just can't buy them anything else for christmas.

That's awesome Logan. Well, not the ticking your wife off part :lol:. At least I know I'm not the only one that's gone berserk with Joes over the last couple weeks. My sons are going to have a pretty cool Christmas as well. Mine won't be that bad either :wink:.

I keep looking at TJ Maxx and they get a trickle of new joes in. I really want to find a Cobra Eel and a shipwreck. An old school snake eyes would be cool too. I went to a tuesday morning and all they had were some ROC figs, but I did find a Terminator Salvation T-700 for 2.99.. I passed on it one day then went back a week or so later and picked it up. its not a joe but I didnt get any of the Terminator salvation figs so its still pretty cool.

In between school, homework, and work I went by my local TJ Maxx and I found a 25th Hall Of Heroes Firefly. I felt I couldnt pass it up, he comes with lots of cool sabatour accessories and a pack for them. There was a HOH Zartan as well but I passed on that him in favor of the cooler Firefly. Has anyone seen the Cobra Eels or Snake Eyes at TJ Maxx?

I've seen the commando and arctic Snake-Eyes figures at T.J. Maxx, as well as the v1 and v2 Hall of Heroes Snake-Eyes figures. I haven't found any Eels since they were available at Big Lots, but I've seen where other collectors reported finding them at T.J. Maxx.

I've found Eels at TJ Maxx, Marshall's and Ross. I've picked them up at all three places. You can never have too many Eels :D.

Ive seen the artic snake eyes but im looking for the V1 snake eyes Hoh or regular 25th. They had tons of Mutt and junkyard which is funny and tons of ROC. I love the ROC Ice Viper, I bought it at Wal mart awhile ago when they were $5 there. Ill go back again this week and see if they have any new ones.
