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

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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!

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
