Very nice lot of Anniversary figures on eBay

Throughout my time on the web, I’ve met some guys who take the G.I. Joe hobby VERY seriously.  I appreciate those folks who work long and hard to enrich the hobby and add to it, I think the community is much better for it.

But every once in a while it’s fun to see someone kind of mock themselves.  A long time Joe fan who runs Broca Blutch is needing some cash for college, so he asked me to let folks know he is selling nearly his entire G.I. Joe collection on eBay now.

Normally, if folks ask me to do this, I don’t bother.  But the guys over a Broca Blutch are unique:

  1. They do not hesitate to berate and make fun of themselves as G.I. Joe collectors.
  2. They’re buddies with a self-proclaimed “rebel blog” called Smash the State, who all pretty much hate my guts.  So any time I can show that I’m the bigger person, I’ll take advantage of it.

So, anyway, check out the auction.  Bid it up real high.  Whether your pay or not is up to you…  :shifty:

How did I miss this? Target DCPI listings for Pursuit of Cobra posted!

Maybe I’ve been recuperating from the Convention, I dunno…  but reliable Target staffer kennywr22 over at HissTank dug up and posted the Target DCPI numbers for the upcoming Pursuit of Cobra product.  I will repeat them below:

  • Figures 087-06-2239 6.99 each
  • Mechs 087-06-2240 19.99 each
  • Bravo vehicles(new #) 087-06-2241 24.99 each

Figures $6.99!  Coolness.  He also mentions that these are hitting distribution centers, and could start arriving in stores within 1 – 2 months.  Retail typically does their section “resets” in late July or early August, so that would certainly fit the time frame.

It seems like freaking forever since we saw these figures for the first time.  Holy crap am I fired up to finally start getting production versions in hand.  Bring ’em on!
