She's not an exclusive, she's in Wave 3. The Club must have mixed up their info.


Yep. The Club was told there'd be an exclusive Lady Jaye, but were sent the picture of the Wave 3 version, and just assumed.

Well that's good to know. It's also comforting to know that even ROC the movie was the suck, the toy line sold fairly well. That is until it reached an over-saturation point. I'm saying that because all the waves made it out. Lady Jaye being in wave 3 isn't disconcerting. Unlike a certain Scarlett Johannson figure in the Avengers line. :roll:

Did they? The penultimate Kamakura/Nano-Viper wave was incredibly scarce in my area, and we never got the final City Strike wave (except for a year later when they started creeping into Marshalls and such).

And then there were the final vehicle waves, which all ended up with a home at Ross.

Honestly, since I started collecting Joes at the tail end of the 25th Anniversary line, not one final wave of one line (25th, ROC, POC, 30th) has appeared at regular retail. That makes me scared as hell about the Crimson Guard and Night Vipers in Wave 5.

I'll have to go back and look at Toy Fair pics again, because I don't remember those at all.

Wave 3 hit but you did have to hunt for it, it never got to the saturation point like the other waves.

Wave 4 really lingered though, there are places I swear I can still find reminants of it today.

BUt with so many figures lacking articulation I got a feeling we may find a choke point with figs like Roadblock #1 ect. Especailly now that we know RB has that stupid thing in his heand that is stuck there.

Can't wait for this line. A few vehicle drivers that don't appeal to me can't begin to outweigh the coolness that Retaliation is bringing. A RZA as Blind Master figure? I don't care if the drivers are molded to the damn vehicles. These reveals made me kinda glad there will only be a few new The Clone Wars figures in 2012. With the club's subscription service, New Orleans in June, and plenty of killer movie toys, G.I. JOE is going to be expensive this year.

The Rza as Blind Master completely blew me away. I so wasn't expecting that. At all.

Ah, that makes some sense. I don't really listen to much rap, but I've heard of the Wu-Tang clan.

Probably couldn't name any of their songs, though . . . :oops:

It's okay Bill. From what I understand there aren't that many hip hop fans at all on AFi. It's the main reason I don't have any input in the "What are you listening to?" thread in the Water Cooler. It's not for everybody.
