What is funny about this sale tomorrow is that the Star Wars and Marvel figs are the Front Page ad and they mention GI Joe near the end and is very small too.

it's because they think Joe collectors like to read their flyers starting from the end....just like a book that's written in japanese  :D

Here is what i found, GI Joe Heaven at the Whitby TRU, plus they had pegs loaded as well! 


IMG00133-20110916-1112 by garling23, on Flickr

...now we have all of these figures via JHL Collectables, and have had them for months!  but at this price I had to buy a few more, good for gifts and army building.  these are the assortments below:

Wave 1 Storm Shadow
Jungle Bats
Steel Brigade
Blow Torch
Cobra trooper
Cobra Commander
General Hawk
wave 4 snake eyes
wave 4 duke
beachhead
sky dive
alley viper
jungle viper
and i did see 2 lowlights,  i pick one up and left one on the pegs.

was hoping to find a wave 1 duke but did not see it.  ...i know these were a dime a dozen and i never did pick it up for my son.

Great sale. Most TRUs I've seen have had quite a bit of stock. I went a little crazy :-) I guess I've been missing the days of RoC when joes were plentiful.

My tally so far:

Jungle BATs: 2 - I left at least 15+ on pegs
Blowtorch: 1 - Pegwarming something fierce
Hawk: 2 - Moving decently, but not hard to find. I might pick up a couple more to use as generic troopers
Steel Brigade: 7 - My favorite figure of this wave. I've left quite a few on the pegs.
Cobra Trooper: 14 - My second favorite of this wave.
Cobra Commander: 0 - Second biggest pegwarmer after BT.

I've also seen a few wave 4 Dukes, but no other figures.

Also picked up a Captain America (Supercombat) and a Red Skull. The same special applies on all Marvel figs.

I haven't seen any vipers in my area. Someone in K-Dub is building a huge Viper army.

You mean the regular "Viper" grunts?  If so, they were not part of the waves that TRU is selling.

Huh. But I thought I saw Vipers in my TRU a while back. Maybe I was wrong. Not the first time, won't be the last.  ;)
