Was browsing various toy FB pages and came across this for those West Coast people who are having a hard time finding certain Joe figures. I would think a convention would have plenty of stuff on hand that you could leave with same day? Not sure how much people would be gouging/inflating the prices, but it might be worth a visit for those who are fed up trying to track stuff down in store or online.
I dont know why but all the toy conventions are always in California, anybody notice that?

side note: has anybody tried to boil and pop a classified figure? i think im gonna modify my Regal cobra commander

Yep. Totally disassembled a Duke for a custom. Comes apart without any trouble.

That's not true. New Jersey has a popular toycon that I've attended a couple of times. Transformers and G.I. Joe have cons that usually take place on the east coast. And what about New York Toy Fair. I'd even bet there are dozens of smaller cons on the east coast that I'm not even aware of.

You should scope out Facebook for local toy shows or conventions. Even here in Ohio there are multiple semi-annual and annual toy and comic shows that offer a wide selection of vendors and are well worth the admission price for a few hours of toy shopping. The best part is that you can always haggle with the sellers and try to get a better deal.

Probably just orders that were backed up. Hope this doesn't clog the pegs.
Maybe Hasbro will send some credits so we'll see discounts to get through them.

Yes, these standard waves have been readily available at online retailers for months now. It's been such a drought for new product with Hasbro's commitment to rereleasing the Cobra Island exclusives, which I appreciate, but I hope they have more than just a couple figures ready for PulseCon next month. It feels like we're due for about 6-8 more figures in this line and please Hasbro, don't make them all store exclusives like the Star Wars team is doing.

Word on the street is next year will see a lot of Joe figures.

I think the floating movie release date just screwed up a lot of Hasbro's plans for Classified. With the movie out and gone, I think it'll be clear sailing for more Classified product. I think we'll get a wave a quarter. And exclusives too.

New York Toy Fair is a trade show and not a convention open to the general public. Your other points however are 100% spot on.

I hope you're right!

Can't wait to have Cover Girl, Zarana, Tomax, Xamot and classic looking Storm Shadow and Scarlett.

Do you guys think we'll see many reveals @ Hasbro Con? It's been a moment since the Classified team doesn't reveal new products right?
