I dont think you have to worry about finding the joes, they are shipping alot of them to wal marts, the only problems with mine is that the one set is in bad shape and the other is nice and mint...except i could not find another decent Duke because the other one had a really messed up bubble,so i have to wait to find a nice one.

 

It still makes me sad that we both live in Minnesota, yet the toy selections seem world apart in the stores near where we live. You seem to have an easy time finding TFs and 'Joes, and I can't find them (particularly Joes) anywhere. The walmarts around here get a new case in, maybe once a month, and it's like a single case. I've gone to Walmarts, Targets, etc constantly, and I've only seen wave 6 in stores maybe twice, and I still have yet to see an armored CC. The pegs for Joes are always bare around here.

Really? I'd have thought that since you live in Minneapolis the stores would get more figures in, since it is afterall the capital.

My only guess is that in such a large area, there are a higher concentration of collectors and/or scalpers, who are buying up all the figures. Not that I really care that people buy multiples or anything, but it seems like every person who's found wave 7 thus far on the various forums I've been to have either bought the store out of every figure, or bought like, three copies of each figure. Ok, I can understand army building the generics and such, but do people really need like, 6 Snake Eyes...? It's what prevents everybody from getting a shot at these figures. I don't even know if they just aren't out in the area yet, or if I've just been totally missing them altogether. About the only wave I got lucky on was Wave 5, which I found complete back in like November of last year, then I never saw them all together again. I see IG Destro and Snow Job occasionally, but those are the only ones from that wave I ever see anymore. Wave 4 I never even saw until about January of this year.

My G1 Ultra Magnus lot came today: plastic-wheel cab, large fists, cab connector, and 2 missile launchers w/ short missiles. Swapped all his chrome, very nice shape, onto my poor beat-up G1 Optimus Prime. Yay shiny!

Oh, i dont really think there are any scalpers in my area, and there are few collectors that I know of, that is why I am so lucky to always be able to get things right away when they come out; that is why I always tell people I am the best Damn Toy Hunter in Mankato lol
