It wasn’t all that long ago that I reported a rumor stating that the 30th Anniversary toys would be hitting domestically on or around August 16th. Well, it’s the 21st, and while the target date of the 16th wasn’t quite right (my bad) we are starting to see the first signs of a full scale G.I. Joe 30th Anniversary invasion.
First and foremost, from HissTank.com, Lord Norin reports that he found a Black Dragon VTOL and VAMP Mark II at a local Wal-Mart! Not only have they hit, but they are retailing for around $20. In that same thread, many other reports of the same thing. HissTank member umanumanamo was even cool enough to share some images and a review of the incredibly awesome Steel Brigade Delta figure.
Also, Corey Stinson from SmallJoes.com reports that Hasbro has informed him his initial allotment of 30th Anniversary figures is processing, and he expects to get them within a week or so.
Last, but not least, over at Fighting 118th, soia339 received a carded Hazard Viper from Asia, and has posted several very nice images of that as well.
So rejoice Joe fans. The well has been dry for a little while, but we’re starting to see a trickle. It only gets better from here!
