G.I. Joe 30th Anniversary Wave 4 Processing through BBTS

Joe fans have been on the edge of their seats, and as usual, it’s feast or famine.  Just like Waves 1 & 2 struck almost simultaneously, I received my set of Wave 3 from Big Bad Toy Store last night, and received notification that Wave 4 was now processing!  How’s that for service?

Items are mostly listed in a “Pre Order” status, but they are showing up at BBTS, and promise to be hitting Kokomo Toys early next week.  Buckle your seat belts, Joe fans.  Wave 4 is without a doubt the strongest wave, top-to-bottom that we’ve ever seen in the modern era, and I really don’t think that’s hyperbole.

Hit up Big Bad Toy Store to check out their stock, and while you wait until the figures are available, get caught up on my advanced reviews as well!

  1. It’s certainly the first wave in years that has at least 4 of 5 characters I want. The best wave since the 25th Anniversary line ended its run

  2. I preordered the wave (or rather, my wife preordered it for me for Christmas), and I received the e-mail stating “Your preorder item(s) have arrived and we have processed your order.”

    But it’s not listed in my preorders, and yet it doesn’t appear to be anywhere else in my account, either.

    When a preorder is “processing” is it in limbo for a short while or something?

  3. Well, the key to this being so well-received is that it’s all unique characters. It’s been very rare that Hasbro’s has the guts recently to do an entire wave without one Snake Eyes / Duke / CC / Storm Shadow in it. Aside from the repaint-heavy 30th Wave 1, the only one that fits that description in the past couple of years was Wave 4 of PoC – and that was the VERY well-received Low-Light / Shadow Tracker mini-wave.

    This is five new characters that generally meet the modern standards for sculpting and accessories (unlike the earlier Renegades figures). I understand Hasbro’s desire to push out familiar figures, but given this stage of the line isn’t really mass-market, it’s good to see them finally embracing where this last surge of pre-movie stuff should take them.
