I am going to try to start another Seattle/Puget Sound/Pac NW finds/news/gossip thread and see if anyone is interested in it this time around.

Feel free to post about
toy finds
local convention news
local store news (closings, clearances, etc)
and other local gossip

So let me start things off.

Wizard is adding two more cities to their convention circuit according to the word on the street. So don't be suprised to see Wizard World Seattle in 2006.

Cobra Urban Assault & Anti-Venom sets are readily available at the Lynnwood TRU.

I think you are going to have very little luck finding those cards locally now that there are no WOTC stores. Unless a big box like your work place carrys them, then you will have to internet order them. No comic/card stores that I know wanted to risk carrying them because there is little demand. I honestly don't think this game will be around long. They should have done a minature game like the upcoming Star Wars one. Then I would have bought some.

I have been looking all around the Greater Seattle Area south. I did a bunch of stores last week and the closest I came was some signs were up at the Target store on 260th street. I think that is in Kent. I went back there today and they finished the reset and the signs were still in place. No 25th products though. They did have the combat squad guys and the Adventure team. That tiger is looking really sweet. I have seen those 8 inch guys all over the place. The Southcenter Target also got the reset done. So probably did all the other Targets in the area.
I was in the Target in Lacey, WA on Sunday. I can't remember if they had done their reset.
So that is my report on searching for the 25th toys in Seattle area.

JayLeeBowen
08-20-2007, 02:04 AM
I found 5 packs all over the place today. The Big Kmart on Aurora had 3 5packs, 2 Cobra and 1 Joe.

The Fred Meyer on 85th is where I finally found my single pack Snake-Eyes with white Timber. They also had a CC and CO. Cobra Commander and Cobra Officer.

The oddest thing I found out today was the abundance of 5 packs I saw in the North end stores. I saw at least 1 5 pack in multiple places. Try the Fred Meyers is the only thing I can really say.

Alderwood Mall Toys R Us is a wonderful store. I did not realize that it was a big store. I have become so used to the Northgate and Southcenter stores that I forgot that there are bigger stores out there. If anyone is looking for the Plague troopers 6 pack, go there. They had like 8 on the shelf. I plan on using the one I bought to make my own Steel Brigade trooper. Most likely I will use the head of the bad guy because he looks like me and try to put it on a Snake-Eyes v13 body I hope to have lying around. I think I have an extra.

So I bought 44 and 101, got a great deal on Parachute SE with BAT Sigma 6, 6 pack plague, 5 pack Cobra, 5 pack Joes, and Snake Eyes with white Timber.

Now I want a black Timber and it will hold me until the next wave.

All I've seen in around Portland is Wave 3 and it was only one stocking, two weeks ago at least.

Since then, things have just been dwindling on the pegs, and now they're mostly bare everywhere.

I hope Fred Meyer replenishes, since it's the only place I can conveniently scope out routinely.

I know we're in the dead zone (post-Christmas, pre-reset).

But I wanted to drop a line on what I've found recently:

TRU and Fred Meyer seem dead, but Targets are getting restocked with Wave 3 rev. cases. I grabbed a revised torso Beach-Head (what a difference that makes!) at Jantzen Beach Target in Portland yesterday.

Anyone find Wave 5 in the NW? It seems like I saw Willie&Joe post that he snagged them in Eugene, but I can't find that post now.

I figure Fred Meyer's going to be a good bet for Wave 5 sometime this month since the warehouse got one shipment of Wave 4 pre-Christmas and sold out fast, meaning (presumably) that whatever they get next will be Wave 5...

Also, if you're willing to drop an extra two bucks on the buggers, Things from Another World are stocking them, the Milwaukie and Sandy Boulevard locations had Wave 3 rev. as well.

Yeah, I did find wave 5 at WalMart a couple of weeks before Christmas. It seems that all they had was the one case and I haven't seen it anywhere since. Hope everyone finds it soon, I think it's the best so far.

Freddy's does seem to be a good place to find 25th's. The always stock pretty well and I think the price is a little too high for most scalpers.

Awesome that TFAW is selling the line. Main St. in Milwaukie is one of my favorite vacation spots with TFAW, Dark Horse, and that really cool antique store that usually has a few Joes.

That place is great! They were fully stocked up on DTC figures at a decent price ($6 if I remember correctly) they also had a smattering of vintage stuff.

TFAW is charging an arm and a leg for the 25th, but I wouldn't be surprised if I resort to them when Wave 5 starts hitting again.

I haven't seen the comic packs yet, and it seems like Fred Meyer is still out of stock, which is a bummer. They are the best place to score figures, plus it's easy for me to make an excuse for a trip ... gotta get some milk... and COBRAS! :)

I was in Fred Meyer stores lately looking for Joes. I have seen some cases of the single pack VvsV packs in the stores. It is very odd to see them on the shelf with the 25th anniversary packs.

I wish they were cheaper than the $2.99 price on them though. Fred Meyer was having a 20% off sale on action figures this week so maybe you can get them for $2.39 each.

hey all,

just wanted to let everyone know about the new weekly collector fair/show that is happening every saturday in Portland. http://portlandhobbyfair.com/

I have a modest amount of 82-85 joes and vehicles (all loose), but they wont last. And the show is in need of a regular joe seller/dealer. So i encourage anyone to step up and fill that gap.

I should mention that this is just getting going, and is the perfect opportunity to get in on the ground floor of something that has potential to be huge.

see you there!

In case you missed it, all of Wave 11 is up for order on HasbroToyShop (limit of 1 per figure) and use the code MDCREW to save 20% (shipping and tax still apply). If you order the whole wave it will about $8 a figure shipped. They also have STAR WARS wave 4, but they don't ship until December 8th. They still have the Firebat and AWE Striker in stock. Well, Entertainment earth just shipped my FANG/CLAW and AWE STRIKER, so I won't need to hunt it down at Kmart. However, I may buy an extra FANG if I actually find it on the shelf. I kept my pre-order of Wave 11 from EE so I can keep on sealed. I'm still collecting 2 of each. Has wave 10 even hit the stores yet? I need a regular version of the Wraith figure. My friend said he found the Fang/Claw and Awe Striker at a Wal-mart, so they will be showing up everywhere. I agree with you about having a half BATs/Snow Serpent box, but I'd rather just have a sweet BAT Battle Pack. That'd be cheaper anyway. Happy hunting! YO JOE!

At my local Target (a few minutes outside Tampa) they are keeping the shelves packed! I buy only one of each figure to keep cost reasonable so today I left behind Wraith, all 3 resolute figs, new Firefly, both TF, Snake Eyes (85 style and Artic), a Bat and Paraviper, There was plenty more (about 40 figs on the shelf) but those were the best. That Target seems to be the only place around with a large variety. Most places around here have a few CCs and some old Duke comic packs. Also since KB is going under they have Joes 30 percent off. Problem is they have 4 Legions packs and 2 Joe 5 packs and AFTER the discount still want 22 bucks. EDIT- sorry Im new here and didnt realise this was a local thread for the NW. Maybe I'll make it up to you guys by sending you some East Coast overflow figures. Who wants Wraith lol

I think that wave is internet exclusive.

No, it has been at local Targets in the past couple of days.

Of which?

TRU packs? I left gobs. I only bought two of the three.

Of Wave 12? I passed on them entirely. I am not very excited about that wave either. I will probably get a Tripwire at some point but that is about it.

Cool. I may just have to ask you all if you'll sell me any extras. I expect to be back in Washington by year's end.

Oops. Wasn't it originally going to be internet exclusive? Or do I just make things up?

I think there were rumors of that happening but I thought they were just rumors.

Or someone returned the figures there and that is how they ended up at Target.

The Everett Target had the Joe Mighty Muggs this morning. If any are left it is probably just Duke.

I finally got out of the house and to the toy store. I only went to Northgate but I did find some comic packs and some of the 3 packs.

Hard Master and Snake Eyes
Scrap Iron and Wild Bill

Destro, IG officer, IG trooper
Air Command
Sea Command

The Comic packs are one aisle past the Joe aisle.

I found a UBP for $28 at the Olympia Target. Thank goodness I keep my receipts. I managed to get 2 for the price of one! You gotta love Target's price slashing process. So tunnel rat is a fred meyer's for $14.99. That explains why D&S Toys wants more for that wave then the rest of them. Hasbro must of jacked up the price for them to the same or more than Star wars cp. Hey I post on the hisstank usually, does anyone want to join our Northwest JOE club on this site? PM me if you're interested. We had only 3 people for our first get together, but it was fun to talk JOE.

I did not think that Target allowed returns on clearance product.

That is cool. I need to get down to the South end soon. I have been stuck in Seattle because of the weather for a while. I have not wanted to take long drives because of the weather.

I still need to find a Wraith figure.

I used a receipt every time. I haven't been denied yet. I got 2 Rancors for the price of one last year and 6 order 66 packs for $20 the year before that. I believe as long as you have your receipt you can do it. I saw Wraith at the Olympia TRU. They had like 3 of them. He's also popping up at Wal-Fart. Happy hunting!

The Everett Target got the new Python Patrol and Tiger Force jets a couple of days ago. As far as I know they are still there. They weren't moving.

They were also the only Target on the north end where I have seen them (or heard of them).

I got my jets in Lakewood about 3 weeks ago. Some stores are waiting for a reset. I have picked up the new 5 packs at Fred Meyer recently as well.

The GI Joe movie opens. Would anyone in the Seattle area want to do this as a group?

I would like to go as a group to watch the movie. I don't know if the Cinerma downtown would have it or not but we can work out the detials as the date draws near.

I tried to start a group before, but no one was interested. I'm a member of the SARLACC group (Star Wars collectors) and that is fun. I would go to the movie with you all, but I'm taking the family. I have to take my daughters before they realize barbie is cooler for girls. Anyway, I've searched everywhere for those new Target exclusives. Nothing done here in Olympia. Oh well...

I saw the Tiger Rat at SouthCenter Target on Sunday. I think all the resellers are picking up the exclusives to sell at the Emerald City Comic-con this year. That is what they did with the Target exclusives last year. They jacked the price up to double the Target price. I doubt they sold a single one but they probably did. To those people who don't pay attention and shop at Target. I hate resellers.

Is anyone going to the midnight showing of Wolverine tomorrow night?

I will be going to the Regal cinema in downtown Seattle. I am not sure what theater I will be in at this time. I should have bought my ticket today but I forgot. I figure I will have time tomorrow to get it.

There are no new messages in this thread from anyone but me in a while now. I know some people are still in Seattle because I see the missing figures on the pegs from the movie line.

I will be watching the movie in downtown Seattle. I will be attending a midnight showing hopefully. Then I will be in the theater Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I am taking a three day weekend. At this point I plan on attending every showing I can.

Feel free to say hello if you see me. I am a big guy, most likely wearing shorts and sandals. Probably sporting a GI Joe shirt unless I find some nice green clothes for a uniform.

YO JOE!

Though I cringe at the thought, I do want to see the movie out of morbid curiosity, but when I can't afford groceries I can't really justify movie tickets.
