Got them all, along with doubles of CG, AV and regular Trooper.

It's weird that they called Dice an Axe Ninja Viper instead of his actaul name.

Can anyone help me with 75,77 and 78?  Someone beat me to the case and got the troop builders.

I hope they bring lots of them, the US is drying up and thier thirst for Keros is growing bigger and bigger!

I was able to get a few from my friends in Texas.

Thanks for the heads up, I was able to pick up a set at my local TRU last week. Only one case, so no troop builders left after I was done. Hopefully they put more out at some point for those that missed them.

I hope they put out troop builder sets at some point, because putting troopers in the cases at the same ratio as the characters is going to make them difficult to track down. And they're so cheep to army build too.

I imagine they will. I think this will be marketed more like LEGO stuff (they reissue Stormtroopers and other troopbuilders all the time)... And after all, they've already reissued Transformer Kreons in cheap little 5-packs, previously only availble by purchasing expensive sets.

The only thing I don't like about GI Joe Kre-o is that it's only available at TRU... I wonder if this is always going to be the case?

Well the way TRU is stocking these it's going to be slim pickings. Each TRU is only stocking a case or two at most it seems and the way they stock other exclusives, they don't restock too often. I hope I'm wrong on this.

It's better then them not showing up at all I suppose.

As for being a TRU exclusive only, I can see it being so for the next little while. It's been a struggle for Joes for some time now and things don't look like its going to change any time soon. It's difficult for Joes to exist in this world, with what's been going on. The truth is parents don't want toys for their kids that are associated with something that is much to real. Real people, guns, military, terrorism, etc. Sure, some of the same things exist in other toy lines like Transformers, but they are robots, TMNT, they are turtles and no guns, Halo, but the bad guys are Aliens. Parents can digest it a little more easy. Also aside from the movie there's no exposure for Joes for kids, no cartoon means no Joes at mass retail.
