Evy and Raven (an easy re-use of the existing Raven tooled head).

Another way to print some money:
Dr. Venom, Kwinn, and Snake-Eyes 3 pack with a reissue of Marvel 15 from Skybound... Crossover city, just sayin'

I think we need a jungle fatigues/shorts Kwinn and lab coat Dr. Venom in O-ring for sure. Single carded is fine as well...

The hard part is $20 or so a pop for O-rings seems like a lot when you can get a Classified for $25. I'm sure I'll buy some though. I mostly avoided Reaction, but I did get a BAT and a couple ninjas on clearance.

I would love to see Super7's O-ring take on the BAT vs the original vs the blackmajor. Hopefully they can re-use nearly all their awesome head-sculpts on O-rings.

You made a good point. I got all giddy about the DIC characters, but getting never before made comic book characters would be amazing. So many great ones.

Stopped at Olie's tonight and they had a ton of the G.I. Joe Origins figures for $4.99. Still no sign of the 20-something Zarana's they had a few weeks back. Guessing some Joe collector scarfed them up and is selling them on eBay for three times the cost.

"You might be a redneck when you..." lol

Of course Wal-Mart is deserving of that fate since they seem to have a lenient return policy.

I guess that is one step better than swapping out the figure with some snake eyes movie figure in the windowless packaging and then returning it to walmart.

C'mon. No one should return Joe's. We should all be better than that.

I may have mentioned this in another thread, but as you know i get mine through EE. They shipped the last two waves minus crimson viper, buzzer and Ripper. Now they are saying Buzzer isn't going to ship till february. I am at a loss as to why these are not shipped in wave cases. ^%^ ^%^

On Thanksgiving, I ordered Grunt from Target to pick up in store when they reopened (and technically when I would be back home). They took the order and I got a confirmation email.
Then Black Friday or Saturday, I got a notice he was out of stock and it asked me what I wanted to do.
But the only choice was to cancel or sub another item.

I stopped at Target in person today. Mine has multiple Crimson Vipers, TF Flint and Vypra. And about 5 or 6 PP Trubble Bubbles.
I checked at Ross today, but they only had Stalker and Tomax and Xamot. There were also a few DC Multiverse, Marvel Legends and MOTU Masterverse? Battle Cat's.

There is 0 consistency in the supply chain. Back in the mid 2000s I could count on new stuff at Target just about every Thursday now you can’t even trust when they say in stock on their site.

They straight up don't sell the pp bubble at my target and the farther one away does but it's out of stock. Close target don't sell Crimson viper far one does, no tf Flint at any but one Dusty at the close one, no listing for him on the web page, they stopped selling re Action joes too at the close one. Oh and we only have 2 pegs for joes at target one of them pegs is full of Vypra. Why do I need to hunt 2 different targets just to find em all. Ugg. F target.

But I did get ripper that went well.
