Curse you, ROSS STORES!!

Well, they’re at it again.  Ross, the bane of my collectors’ existence has once again scored a coup, this time with the previously released only in Canada Wave 3 of the Rise of Cobra Alpha vehicles.  This wave contains the Polar Shark Sub w/ Ice Storm, the Desert Rockslide w/ Dusty, the Tiger Claw ATV w/ Leatherneck, and the Lavapod w/ Volcano Viper.

Now, I’ve been able to get these, so really, I’m not feeling too wounded, but every time I hear about Ross getting these cool tail enders, I just get reminded how the nearest store is like 350 miles away.  The vehicles are retailing for about $8.99 apiece, just to twist that knife a bit deeper.

Thanks to GeneralsJoes regular Nas for the info, with confirmation pics at HissTank.com.  If you have a Ross near you, GO GET ‘EM.

Missing Alpha vehicles from The Rise of Cobra found North of the Border!

With a huge thanks to friend of GeneralsJoes and member of JoeCanuck.com Stealth Viper for reporting that the third wave of Alpha vehicles from the G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra have started hitting retail at various Wal-Marts in Canada!

The sighting was first reported here by akpayne, and several other JoeCanuck members have chimed in, including images!

This is finally confirmation that these have hit mainstream retail somewhere, and will fill some holes in many Joe fans’ collections!  Check out the sighting thread here, and if you’re in Canada, or know someone who lives there, start cashing in those favors.
