Big Bad Toy Store Year End Clearance sale has a G.I. Joe flair

Go get ‘em!

GeneralsJoes Reviews BBTS Exclusive Spirit, Low Light, “Gnaw” and Zanzibar

Florida Everglades.  0310 Hours.

Already things were going South.  Desperately attempting a covert approach, the Marauders had been spotted and Burn Out had razed their team with his flamethrower.  As Barbecue separated to take on the aggressive Dreadnok, the team split apart, hoping to flank their disorganized enemy.

Only it turns out the enemy was not so disorganized.

Spirit wove seamlessly through the brush, almost becoming one with the jungle as he paced himself South, trying to find a way around the cackling Dreadnok.  His movements were smooth, slick, and silent, but even the quietest of hunter gives off heat amongst the cold leaves of the surrounding trees.

A quick shot rang out, which Spirit was a bit too slow to avoid, and took a bullet at his left hip as he dove to the ground.  Low Light, who had been following close behind, immediately dropped to a crouch and raised his rifle to his eye, quickly spotting the familiar curled hat of Australian poacher Dreadnok “Gnaw”.  The snarling ruffian let his rifle slope a little towards Spirit as he moved away.  The Native American Joe caught Gnaw’s scent now, and silently chided himself for not noticing it sooner.  He also quickly noticed amongst the thick brush, he had no immediate outlet, and could almost feel the heat of the infrared scope on his forehead.

Low Light squeezed off a shot, striking his target, the broad side of Gnaw’s rifle, shattering it.  The poacher shouted profanity and spun around, whipping a knife from a sheath in the small of his back.  Low Light jacked back the magazine, loading another round in the chamber, but another shot rang out to his right and struck him in the shoulder.  Grimacing, the sniper slammed to the thick jungle ground as the Dreadnok pirate Zanzibar was on him, casting aside his old school pistol for a blade of his own.  But Low Light was ready.

Ten yards away, Gnaw gracefully eased forward, his knife glinting in the moonlight, but suddenly his prey was upon him and Spirit descended like a jungle demon.

SmallJoes.com and BBTS Preorders posted for 30th Anniversary Wave 3

Pre-Orders are coming down the pipe for upcoming 30th Anniversary Wave 3 G.I. Joe items.  A short while ago I hypothosized that the list we saw in Diamond Previews was not a true Wave 3 case pack out, and it looks like that assumption was at least partly correct.  The figure rundown looks to be similar, but Hasbro is double-packing the key new figures, and has a lot more army builders packed in the case.

Right now you can hit up SmallJoes.com to pre-order the case or select individual figures:

You can also go to Big Bad Toy Store and do some limited pre-orders as well, though the troop builders are already sold out.
Best news to me is that these appear to be due in November, 2011!  Sweetness.

Big Bad Toy Store confirms wave pack outs for upcoming PoC items

I think many of us had a good idea that the first wave of 30th Anniversary stuff would be re-issue heavy, but just in case we weren’t fully aware, BigBadToyStore has posted pre-orders for upcoming product, which also breaks down the list of items per wave.

Wave 1 sadly only has two new figures, Sgt. Stalker and Hazard Viper mixed in with repacks of Steel Brigade, Cobra Viper, Cobra Trooper, and Iron Grenadier.  Of course, the good news is, these figures are all pretty desirable army builders, so it may not be quite so painful.

Wave 2 will consist of Renegades Firefly, Renegades Duke, Renegades Snake Eyes, and Renegades Cobra Commander.

The first mid sized vehicle assortment has the Crimson HISS and Black Dragon VTOL.  I’ve posted all of the pre-order links below:

BBTS does have “September, 2012″ listed as a release date for the Wave 2 stuff, but I suspect that is just a typo.  No images have been posted as of yet.
