Retaliation Figures are here!
« on: May 25, 2012, 10:19:29 PM »

Hey all,

My local TRU has got Retaliation Wave1 out on shelves, earlier than the 28th release date!

They had the single packs, bike packs, the hiss and the new moccassin and the 3 pack.  At $10.99 theyre pricey though.

Do you guys think its better to wait for a sale or do you think that these are going to fly off the shelves, now that the movie is postponed for 9 months?

I say grab what you want now. I doubt these will get restocked. Once they are gone we'll have to wait until February.

I should add, Dufferin Mall TRU has them. I got everything I wanted from wave 1.

Found, and bought, black CC, red ninja and Joe Trooper with beige cape at Sherway TRU.  Only ones left.  Lots of most everything else

Only found Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, BLack CC and roadblock for single packs in Ajax.  No GI Joe Troopers here, I wonder why some stores have them and some don't, or the staff are scalping some.

TRU Weston/Hwy. 7 is nicely stocked. 

All figures are available, including the Cobra Trooper.

It does appear that we (Canada) are getting the Black CC and beige cape GI Joe Trooper instead of the original versions.

you could check out my site to see if they are the different ones, then you will know if Canada only got certain ones

saw everything at the whitby tru.  my son and i were excited to go and pick up a few of the figures.  i was never impressed by the pics of the retaliation figs, but my son was wanting a rock figure and the new cc.  once we had trhem in hand and looked at them I have to say they are pretty crappy in my opinion.  colours, theme just looks horrible.  almost looks like the 90's stuff from ARAH.  the 3 packs look to be the best by far, and the new storm shadow looks good too.  otherwise not impressed.  my son was going to spend his allowance on 2 of the figures (he had been saving up for retaliation).  he also was not happy with them...  bought a lego video game for PS3 instead as they were on sale.  I have to say that the ROC stuff was way better.

Ditto on the Whitby Toysrus.  Lots of stuff still in stock, multiples of all the figures. 

I pretty much picked up the whole wave except for the red ninja, Renegades Storm Shadow is much better.

So if your looking this is the place.  Hopefully this stuff goes on sale soon, pick up some more later. 

Also Ajax has the figures too, but only 4 out of the 9 figures from the first wave

Yeah I bit the bullet on what I really wanted now, which wasn't much.  From this point on it is wait and see for a sale, unless wave 2 stuff magically comes out.
