General Joe Talk / Trip to the US
« on: August 10, 2009, 06:45:33 PM »
Found a couple of things.

I noticed that the Cobra Gun ship had to different version of the pilot.
One had a red helmet and the other was a black helmet? Toysrus price was $24.99 (not on sale) even with exchange better price than  in Ontario.

I also saw the Crimson Stealth jet - don't remember the name and I passed on it as I already own two of them from the Spy Troops series. And the best Joe Vehicle the RHINO, I also passed on this as it was blue and $59.99.

However I did pick up the New joe Helicopter with Wild Bill, not a bad toy - a little on the small side and not much play value.

Does anyone know of site that has all of the joe stuff that is currently out there, YoJoe.com is a little behind on stuff.

Are there any in southern Ontario anymore?
I know they used to be in every city - Hamilton had several, Toronto had 3 on yonge street but that was 15-20 years ago.

Specifically I am looking for parkas and pants.

Cheesy in spots but just like the cartoon.

Ontario / AT-TE at winners
« on: April 07, 2009, 01:47:35 PM »
Not joe related, but I picked up an AT-TE for my sons birthday this weekend at Winners for $70.
It is the version with the clear plastic front and came with several figures.
General Kenobi, Grevious, 3 clone troopers and some battle droids.

Here is a photo of it.  http://www.rebelscum.com/2008/TCWATTEint.jpg

General Joe Talk / Toysrus.ca ups prices
« on: February 01, 2009, 08:08:30 PM »
Figures are now $10.99 - I have bought a couple of figures in the past, but at $11 a pop plus shipping, I don't think I will again in the future - unless they have something I absolutely have to have!
The 3 packs are now $16.99.

Saw this over at Toynewsi

It is a great custom!!  If Hasbro put a little effort into this some of the cross branded toys would be amazing.

General Joe Talk / BAT's on TRU.ca

$9.99 plus shipping is more than I would want to pay, but for anyone having a hard time finding these it is another option.

General Joe Talk / Resolute and new 5 packs at Smalljoes.com
« on: December 13, 2008, 08:07:59 AM »
The new resolute figures are up - for pre order?  I think this is the first time Smalljoes has ever done pre orders.
In the past Corey has said he doesn't do pre orders because he could never confirm if Hasbro would ship him the number of items he would need, and would then have to go back to his customers to have them wait longer.  It makes me think that Hasbro's policy has  shipping has changed and they can now guarantee pre-order numbers?

Ontario / Crimson Guard pack at TRU.ca
« on: November 08, 2008, 07:40:12 AM »
http://www.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=3379818&kw=&origkw=&parentPage=search&f=PAD/Brand%20Name%20Secondary/G.I.%20Joe

$19.99.

Considering the last toysrus I was in they had about 20 greenshrits and 20 CG packs I am amazed the Greenshirt pack isn't on the website as well.

General Joe Talk / Target Conquest and Rattler Stickers
« on: October 27, 2008, 06:01:06 PM »
I have read in several threads that the Rattler stickers suck.
I applied the Conquest stickers and have found that they are OK, is there anything specific about the Rattler stickers?
I would rather not apply them - if all of them are crappy, but if it is only 1 or two- I would give it a whirl.

General Joe Talk / New Vehciles in Canada?
« on: October 20, 2008, 08:21:02 AM »
Are any showing up? or does anyone know if they are going to show up?  Paying the shipping on vehicles sucks especially when I really only want them for the figure.

Specifically
Leatherneck and the AWE striker
Cobra Fang and Claw
FireBat
Deep Siz and the Shark

General Joe Talk / 25th rattler wheels
« on: October 19, 2008, 09:58:23 AM »
I was lucky enough to find one of these at Target yesterday - I love this toy, not a huge update to the original one, but it is alot cheaper and I am not paranoid about handling it.

However the wheels are still no improvement.  I lowered the landing gear for the first time - one wheel came down with no problems, the other rear wheel now shows signs of stress (dark blue plastic is not light blue)  the same thing happened with the front wheel.  I am betting that if my son were to spend 30 minutes with it, those wheels would be broken off.  The plastic is softer and the the front wheel has been completely redesigned - however the same design flaw exists.
The landing gear are now down, and will probably stay that way for fear of them snapping off.

Anyone else notice this?
