    yeah, went there and this is all they had, no wave 2 figures! i know they’ll get them but im tired of waiting

  • Valo487

    There wasn’t anything when I went to mine today, including space on the shelf for them.

  • Wonder when the preorders will
    Actually ship?

  • Dan

    In Tacoma WA yesterday (the 15th) there were several building sets, but only three blind bags (two now, I found the Adventure Team Commander I wanted.) The only figs were three Roadblocks from Wave one, and about six Renegades Cobra Commanders. They did have a display of the micro figs.

  • Dusty Ayers

    The TRU I stopped at today only had the Dragonfly but no single packs which I was actually looking for.

  • Dusty Ayers

    Holy crap! When did Ace show up in this wave? I guess I’ve been looking at the same pictures over and over so when new pics emerged I thought it was more shots of the same stuff. I had no idea they did a fighter jet. Awesome!

  • monkey boy

    all TRUs in my area steadfastly refuse to acknowledge that GI Joe is a thing, so no kreos in sight.

  • jedijones77

    Still no sign of any in local Pennsylvania TRUs. And the web site has the majority of them still on pre-order. I think any rumors of an “official release date” for these were highly exaggerated.

  • GeneralsJoes

    Well, technically it’s not a rumor if it comes direct from Hasbro’s official PR firm. That’s about as official as it gets. Whether or not the local retailers follow that directive is on them.

  • GeneralsJoes

    Ace with the Ghoststriker and the Arashikage Dojo Playset are actually both coming later on in the line. They won’t be available upon initial release, I don’t believe.

  • WJWitherspoon

    I just bought a set of the 12 blind bag figures. I am surprised how much I really like them. I am going to have a very hard time not troop building these things.

  • Found some at my local TRU, looked for the numbers provided here all over the package, and could not find them on the front or back , finally grabbed about six packages and got lucky to only get one repeat.
