Found the new wave of Joes at TRU - one Beach-Head, and several of Duke, SE, and SS. Nobody else, though, so I'm guessing it was already picked over. And so sale, either. bah!

With the Target resets going on I saw the new Joes at two targets. I was able to snag a new Firefly and Alley Viper. That new Snow Job is calling to me. The accessories on the POC are awesome.

Yeah I can't believe all of the accessories that the figures come with. Snow Job is awesome!

Found the entire wave of the singles at Target on Friday and then they already restocked today. Nicely done Target! I picked up one of everyone plus an extra Alley Viper.

I'm loving this line so far. I haven't purchased any of the vehicles yet but the second wave looks awesome with the Awe Striker, VAMP and Cobra Fury.

I've been to six Targets and two TRU; the Alley-Viper is nowhere to be found here. I'm guessing that they will sit at Walmart for $9.97 when they show up.

I figure the only figure that will sell at Wal mart is Alley Viper and that's only after people begrudgingly buy it due to not finding it at Target or TRU.

I'm a bit disappointed the Alley Viper is only one per case. You would think Hasbro would know people want to army build such a cool new trooper.

Since I'm a relative newbie to the line I hit the mother lode this weekend. I found Snake Eyes, Duke, Beachhead and Storm Shadow. I'm one happy camper :mrgreen:.

I would just like to award recognition for using this phrase correctly. Few ever do.

I haven't really been looking for Pursuit of Cobra, as I pre-ordered everything I wanted from BBTS and HTS, but I still haven't seen any of them while out looking for other things. My area is usually a good two or three weeks behind the first sightings, though.

I'm loving the vehicles in this line. The new HISS tank is great (though I'll admit I'm repainting it black) and the Snow Cat (er, Wolf Hound) is great too. I always forget how much fun and detail is packed into Joe vehicles.

The figures seem to take the best of the movie line and put it back into a neo-classic vibe. Not interested too many of them but Hasbro's done a great job.

I read somewhere Marsellus that they were going to release it in a grayish color. It maybe a running change or something. Have to go check where i read that.

I wondered if they were going to do that. I was surprised to open the package and see a brown tank. A dark gray would be fine. Heck, if it looked like it does on the package it would be fine. But, alas, it's too late for me as I've already primed my tank. I'll probably start painting tonight.

Any word on whether Snake Eyes will get an all black treatment? I like the figure but he's a bit purple. :lol:

Does anyone know what the case pack out is for the newest wave? I've been to 10 different stores between Target and TRU and I haven't seen Firefly, Cobra Commander, Snow Job or Alley Viper. Is it just because these are the most popular, and I'm getting there too late? Or are these short-packed? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

The only one of those four I've seen is Snow Job. Also, I haven't seen the Toys R Us exclusive Quick Kick and Spirit.

Yes! Just found the new Cobra Commander this morning at TRU! Not my preferred interpretation of the Commander, but it's a dang sweet figure!

POC is rockin'!
