WAL-MART, STOP 7SHOP. AND HASBRO, SOMETIMES E-BAY
After reading this post, i stopped in my local Stop & Shop, those arent national i dont think,anyway saw some joes there which was a surprise to me seeing as its a grocery store and even my local TRU doesnt have anything, this store is only on wave 7 (which ever wave had the Vipers) but still i snagged a few more vipers and they had the Roadblock from that wave and i havent seen him anywhere
Wal-mart, Target, K-mart, & Fred Meyers mainly, but family dollar and a store call KINGS for the left over VvV stuff. Otherwise joe's are hard to find around here.
Wherever I can find them the cheapest.
The main places I've been getting them are GOOD Wal-marts (Because some Wal-marts do not get $#!t) and Target Super Stores. As far as Toys R Us retail stores,... well I recently received the Cobra Night Watch Pack from BBTS. Even with a TRUs on my way home from work, I bought these off the net. That Toys R Us gets hit so hard, it should have bruises. I rarely stop in, because I KNOW it's been rand-sacked.
Toys R Us should employ some marketing strategist that actually knows the trends of toy buying.(As in one of us) That is what I think this company needs to boast their sales. IMO.
Pretty much those four get me what I need. All I have a problem with getting is Target exclusives.
Toys R us, Wal-mart, Zellers (before they stopped getting joes), independents, basically anywhere I can find them because they're so rare north of the border.
BIG BAD TOY STORE.
I seldom have problems with them - heck, even if you're not the first to pre-order something, I have seen every figure appear on their site at least a couple times before becoming completely unavailable everywhere else.
I also use BBTS, almost my entire collection is from there. With some exceptions that I've found in store, or traded for.
The only exception to a figure being available for order is BATs, they've been sold out on the day the preorder went up and I've never seen them re-list. I'm not saying it hasn't, I'm just saying I've never seen it, and really, who's surprised?
Over here, it's expensive to go anywhere. All our good stores are on the other side of the island (Oahu), and with gas so high, I have to stick to my side. The Windward Mall KB Toys carries the single packs ($8.99) whenever they get in. No vehicles or anything other than the SOTW figures from Formative Inc.
Since I haven't found much anywhere, I go to the ROSS store here near the Mall. They had a lot of Sigma 6 vehicles for the 2.5 inch figures I've converted to 3 3/4 because of lack of credit card for mail order. Also over the many months I've been able to army build from ROSS. So far I have 18 LEGION sets and 6 GI Joe Sets (@ $12.56 each including tax), and also rounded out my Sigma Six force. Hey! From the LEGION Set, if you use your Cobra Air Trroper, since you can't see his face, trade it w/Black Uniformed CC's silver head, and "Voila!" you got another set of troopers!
