Bayview and 7 had POC, my first time finding Shockies in the wild, sorry I had to clear them out as I barely had any.  Lots of $3 ROC as well.

I'm pretty sure the local TRU stock boys scavenge the Joes before they hit the shelves.  The manager maybe in on it too.  I discovered this when I was looking for the ROC exclusives Bench Press and Snow Serpent, they were reported seen at the TRU and were gone when I got there so I asked the manager if they had anymore left that weren't put on the shelves yet.  He told me they were sold out, but for some reason, maybe the disappointment he saw in my eyes or the fact he knew I was a true fan because just a week earlier we had a big conversation about the ROC Arctic Snake Eyes and how cool he was, he went to the stock room and came back with a bunch of Serpents and Benchys.  I was a little confused after he just told me they didn't have any.  He told me they were overstock held for other stores(I found a little strange they weren't delivered to those stores)  he said he wasn't suppose to do this but I could have one of each.

The TRU at Victoria Park and Lawrence just got in a revision case!  LOW-LIGHT is mine finally! I finally got him in the wild.  It is nice to know I get all the figs from Hal but nothing beats the feeling of finding a fig on the peg!

I left 1 AV, 1 JV, 2 Shockies, Skydive and the rest of them.  hopefully they are still there but I would not hold my breath!

The TRU at Cedabrae Mall has WAVE 5 figs out!  I picked up the 2 BATs and left 2 Steel Brigades, 2 Blue Shirts and they also had a Alley Viper and Jungle Viper.

Thanks for the heads up, I missed out on wave 5 online, so I ended up heading there and picked up Hawk, the 2 blue shirts, and the 2 steel brigades.

Nice! And right when I decided I wanted a Blowtorch for a custom. I'll check Dufferin Mall and report back.

TRU Vaughan mills had 3 bloworches and 4 cobra commanders. Passed on those. I'm looking for steel brigade and the cobra trooper, and maybe hawk if i like him in person. Of course they were all gone. Hopefully the blowtorches and CCs sell through and they bring in more cases.

The new walmart in Maple didn't even have a place for GI Joe figures when i went in last week. Talk about a let down after thinking that since wave 5 is hitting and they're a new store... is walmart done with GI Joe for now?

TRU in Barrie has Wave 5.  Looks like they got one case.  Everything was there except for the Steel Brigades.

Just an FYI for anyone in Toronto, I just came back from TRU in Dufferin Mall and they had quite a few Joes. I saw two shock troopers, two steel brigades, two jungle bats, two cobra commanders, a whole bunch of blowtorches, a few beachheads and dukes, and a couple of skydives. Get them while you can!

There was nothing at Walmart.

TRU across Sherway Mall in West End Toronto had 8 full pegs of POC figures with tons of variety. I was finally able to pick up a Low Light.
