Today was the day Diamond had Cover Girl's wave scheduled. Did anyone see them at their lcs? I have no stores in my area that would order Hasbro product. I noticed Midtown Comics website only had Zarana, Dusty, and CG on their schedule
Diamond shipped cases of the snake eyes movie wave that had a shipping label from hasbro on them. That label had the item number of the cover girl wave. Someone screwed something up.

My CG were suppose to be delivered today but got a email from Amazon pushing it back to next Sunday. Got Zarana and Dusty yesterday and I ordered them all at the same time.

I had everything pushed out from today. I have two Guards scheduled for Saturday and one for 12/28, Zarana is now 12/24. I canceled Dusty because I have one each of this wave coming from Pulse. The first Dusty was one of my favorites, but this one isn't looking too good. I'll get another one later if needed.

Wow, major screw up. Hasbro should just eat the loss. Everyone gets their money back and keep those cases or take the cases back and bury them in the desert next to unsold Atari 2600 ET cartridges.

Hey y'all, I'm working on a project and I'm trying to find any Joe or Cobra character whose name begins with the letter Y. I looked on various Wikis, and I only found a RAH character named Yuki who apparently doesn't actually exist. Her real name is the name of a porn star and her article has no pictures or sources, so I highly doubt the veracity of that character. But other than her, the internet is coming up blank.

I figured there's gotta be some Joe nerds here that are steeped in the lore from all of the various Joe comics and cartoons and movies that may be able to point me in the right direction? If I can't find a Y named character it pretty much kills my whole project, so hopefully someone can help! Thanks in advance for any info y'all can provide.

Weird. I got my two CGs and Dusty from Amazon, but they pushed my Zarana to the end of the month.

No Y names according to YoJoe.com's alphabetical list:

I was gonn pass on Serpentor and had gifted my Pulsecon order to my brother, but one of the staffers at my favourite EB said, "Hey, you do GI Joe, right? Do you want that snake god guy in his sealed shipper?"

And I'm an opener and player, but "sealed shipper" was like catnip or something.

Bastard.

Speaking of the brown shippers a friend who works at Amazon told me the SIOC that is stamped on all them stands for "ship in own container", meaning Hasbro is telling them to not use any more packaging. She refuses to do that though, but the stores just slapping a label on the brown shippers are following Hasbros own recommendation.

Or is Hasbro telling them not to remove the shipper? I have had Amazon remove the shipper and slap the label right on the front art. It was a Transformers two pack. How does that make any sense? The person took time to remove the outer box and then create excess garbage. It must have been an employee by employee basis because it didn't happen to everyone. Some people even got theirs double boxed.

It is meant to stay in the box. Like a super7 ultimate.

Sgt slaughter is shipped to all retailers packaged in them.

Saw a bunch of Tiger Force Outbacks and a single Python Patrol Viper at Target just now.
They were in the Video Game aisle, for some reason.

No, it's telling them to use that container to ship them.
