G.I. Joe Classified Series

Thu Jul 23, 2020 3:27 pm

Just starting it off.

There's Snake Eyes and Duke and Scarlett. Along with Roadblock and Destro! And some Cobra Commanders along with that there Amazon Storm Shadow! Wait, and Gung-Ho and Red Ninja too?

But then Target teased us with a Cobra Trooper, Beach Head, another Roadblock, and Baroness on motorcycle. GRAH! But now people are finding them in stores. And it's almost guaranteed the uniques in this wave will hit the main line.

Discuss!

On a Joe related note, I saw where target is going to open back up pre-orders for the TVC Millennium Falcon tomorrow at 10 AM EST. Maybe the Cobra Island Joes will have a similar fate? Cobra Trooper has had the "preorder" button up since 6 AM but he isn't' orderable.

It's had the button since my daughter woke me up at 3:30am EST, at least. Image

Target is doing their reset and they have a spot for the Baroness and motorcycle ($39.99)

They also have spots that say GI Joe Mayfly and some other strange descriptions. I just hope they will be well stocked. I'm not ready to hit the panic button on all of the stuff that the bots bought up a couple of days ago (whether it's GI Joe or Marvel Legends).

If anyone still needs wave 1 Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Duke, or Roadblock, they're back in the $20 price range on Amazon with Prime shipping right now. Here's Snake Eyes:

Mayfly is the codename for Roadblock

I'm trying to be optimistic on the Target stuff but I keep thinking about Dorkside mentioning that folks had misjudged the demand for GI Joe stuff, hence the limited supply and quick initial sell-through for series 1.

I hope Target execs knew what they were getting into.

If worse comes to worse though, I fell like we'll be seeing Beachhead and a Cobra Trooper again in the near future.

Great, that's means there's already a dedicated spot for those exclusives.

As bad as it is having everything bought up online in seconds, I'd be feeling much, much worse if these were Walmart exclusives we were talking about. I feel with Target, at least there's a fighting chance I'll see them on the shelves (I get sent there for grocery runs twice a week minimum).

You are probably right, but unfortunately, hunting in store isn't an option for me (auto-immune disease). Online is the only way I can grab them. Fingers crossed at least Roadblock goes back up since I think Hasbro will find other versions of the other three characters to release at some point.

Gamestop has Destro, Duke, Scarlet, and Roadblock instock and on sale.

Also, does anyone have the Target DPCI for these plus Snake Eyes?
