Destro now available for pre-order. This is the first GI Joe Retro (also, currently, only) item I've seen that is purchasable on walmart.ca  :)

Interesting yet frustrating development I discovered: After weeks of the AWE being the only vehicle listed, more Retro Collection items are now on the Walmart Canada website. The unfortunate news is that these are all listed as Sold Out / Unavailable at this time. Will we see them available for sale soon? Anyone have a line into Walmart who can tell us what's going on?

So it looks like general retail for the Classified line, not counting exclusives.

Walmart has the AWE Striker listed, but out of stock so I am guessing they will get the Retro line in due time.

Cobra Island stuff I think will be coming to TRU up here, but I'm not 100% sure.

I'm not clear on the distinction between Classified and Cobra Island stuff. Both 6"? Can anyone explain or post a link?

Thank you! I'll have a look for that AWE on the WM .ca site...

I haven't touched my collection in a couple years outside of moving the boxes.  I have a bunch of ARAH vehicles and a bit of ME figures.  However it is mostly stuff I never got around to selling when I was reducing my collection.

The new 6" has got my attention, so I'll probably get into Joe moreso again.  The Retro line is cool, but also disappointing because it is just ME figures updated rather than a true full retro line.  Still cool to see the old style boxes/cards again though.

As for the board.  Well let's be honest, just like Thundercats, the fandom has shrunk greatly.  Especially in Canada.  I'm always surprised when I come back here that the site is still active.  It cost money to keep this board going and I don't see the owners post pretty much at all.  With the new movie and toys it does give us a boost for the next 2 years.  Hopefully there will be some new blood drawn into the community.  But yeah the heyday of Joecanuck, canjoecon, and the online mag are long over.

I did not play with the 6-inches, so I can?t say.... but it would have been cool to make a 3-pack of exclusive oring figures (billy, pythona, dr venom). This would have been fantastic.

I took out a few of my collection out as well (they are under my stairs as well). I can?t say I need another hiss or another awe striker,  but it?s fun to see those being made again. I might dust off my collection just for the fun of it.

Seriously, the pogo and buzz boar are fun! LOL I just received my package...

But back to the topic, probably the defiant shuttle complex or the consumers tank (black mobat).

So, 6" Wave 1 has hit shelves in the US and Retro went up for pre-order at Wal-Mart. As I recall, at hisstank.com there was evidence of a bill of lading showing GI Joe had landed in Canada. Any word on retail availability?
