ok, so I'm doing my civic duty to start this thread since I was one of the people that wanted it so much.

i'm in the capitol area, but i do travel to charlotte & fayetteville every once in a while, so most of my sightings will come from there. so far:

Garner, NC (south raleigh) Walmart:
- Spytroops $10 price-point vehicles down to $7
- Some corps stuff clearanced, including the $4 vehicles/artillery
- several of the comic book packs 1 & 2

Garner K-Mart:
-GvC Sand Razor & Hiss IV for $5
-Patriot Grizzly for $10

Cary/Raleigh Toys R Us:
-plenty of Urban Strike & Night Force sets in stock

Well hello there circuitspore!

I ran across several of the Crimson Command Copters @ KB Toys in the Carolina Place Mall in Pineville for $19.99 each! Lame question, but is it worth it?

I've pretty much got out of Joes to make room for my TF collection, but at that price I just might have to go back and pick one up.

Most of everything else new hasn't been put out yet in my area, but all of the local Wal-Marts have completed their new Fall resets so I'm sure the comic 3-pks are just around the corner in the Charlotte areas.

i saw it for $20 here in the raleigh KB, and i still passed on it, but i hardly ever buy 'Joe vehicles because of space limitations. i originally wanted it for the figures - the Twins - but the mold they used is pretty craptacular if you ask me. it's the CLAWS commander body with the giant monkey arms that look plain stupid. as far as playability of the 'copter, sorry I'm not much help there.

In addition to the Crimson Command Copter, I also found the new Battle Hornet at the same KB in Pineville.

Comic 3 packs abound in Charlotte. Found them @ Target in Pineville as well as the Wal-Mart off of HWY 49 in Charlotte. That 12" Sound FX Duke was also stocked.

I cleaned out the Family Dollar on South Blvd. in Charlotte of all the Cobra single carded figs! This is the first time I've visited a Family Dollar store. If it hadn't been for the boards here I would've never known to check there. Thanks!

Ressurecting this post for the 25th Joes, post any news you find concerning NC and surrounding states here



This is the original post back in 2005 :)

Was at Dollar General today in Winston Salem, saw they had the new single packs, Baroness, Tele-Viper, Snake Eyes, Night Creeper, etc..

The easiest way I know to get there is if comming from Bus 40. take Bus 40 to the Cherry St. exit (5c I think) take Cherry through downtown, it becomes University, you'll pass a huge Goodwill on the corner of University and Coliseum Rd. go to the next light, make a u turn and it'll be on your right in a strip mall with eckards subway and some other stores

I went to our Kmart the other day, a bunch of jack squat was waiting there for me. Even though I doubt you'd travel this far to grab the figures :P I'm not sure it's even worth me going around to the different stores here just yet.

Checking in from Raleigh... not quite the Triad, I know. I am becoming increasingly frustrated by the lack of 25th stuff here at ALL stores. I've checked both Toys 'R Us, 3 K-Marts, 6 Targets, and 5 Wal-Marts only to find a great deal of nothing. I've got item numbers for TRU, DPCI's for Target, and even SKU's for Wal-Mart, but none of these stores have any in stock nor do they have any idea when they expect new Joes. :mad:

Shogi
07-12-2007, 05:05 AM
I wasn't able to change the Triad part in the title :( I've been calling the stores and Target keeps telling me that no one in western NC has them at all. (However yesterday they were found in Asheville and last week some were found in Jacksonville, just not at Target)

I stopped at the Wal-Mart and Target in Burlington, NC this morning. They had nothing. The Greensboro TRU and the Wal-Mart and Target on Wendover had nothing as of yesterday.

I got all 15 of the 25th Anniversary figures at the TRU in Asheville (I posted on Joesightings.com, too).

I got them on 7/11/07 at noon. They very day the got them in, a friend of a friend that works there held them for me, but they only got 1 case of the box sets and 1 case of the single-carded! I got one of everything for me and my buddy Arnold is getting the remaining figures. That's kind of lame that they only got a single case of each. I wonder if that means that TRU doesn't have a lot of faith in the Joe line anymore? All the new-sculpt DTC stuff sold out very quickly here, but they still have crap loads of Sigma Six and #101 & #44 3-Packs are still keeping the pegs warm.

Polluxius
07-12-2007, 12:15 PM
I got Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow (all they had left) at noon today from the TRU in Pineville, NC. They got them yesterday. 1 case of the Figs no packs yet. What sucks, is last night is the only night this week I did not stop by that store, and it is when they got them in :(

Awesome! They still had the one Joe pack when I called and they're holding it for me. I also called the TRU in Winston-Salem. After 15 minutes of waiting and talking to 3 different people there I found out that as of right now, they don't carry the 25th joes at all :( They said they may get them at a later date but right now nothing........YAY I'm gonna get to play with Joes today! :D

Rather mysterious goings on here in the Triangle. I called the TRU over in Durham and found that they had the singles out on the pegs, but none of the 5 packs. I picked up a Cobra Officer and a Snake Eyes, so I am no longer completely empty-handed. There was still 1 Cobra Commander and 2 Snake Eyes left on the pegs if anyone is hunting for them as hard as I am.

Another sighting:

Found Cobra 5 pack at the Gastonia, NC TRU. Everything else was gone.

Sometime I hate that I have to work.

Looks like they are starting to get out there. Can't wait to see the singles.

I've found the single packs at the K-Mart in Smithfield and Garner. A friend found them at the Goldsboro K-Mart. No signs of the 5-packs at any K-Mart, though.

I have an extra Snake Eyes w/ White Wolf and Storm Shadow for trade if anyone needs them. Plus, I could use some help with the 2 five packs. If anyone needs a reference, check with Axelay. He knows me from rebelscum and can give you all kinds of sordid details.;)

All this talk about K-Mart having the figures has me stopping at the Burlington Super K-Mart every morning on the way to work. It's been a bust thus far. The Super K-Mart in Greensboro didn't have anything as of Sunday. I've enlisted my wife in the search, and she's reluctantly agreed to check the Reidsville K-Mart for me this evening.

Shogi
07-18-2007, 09:58 AM
I decided to do a run of stores yesterday. Didn't find anything but did get a little info. The Wal-mart on Battleground didn't have any but they said their next toy reset is at the end of August so they may not get any till then. KayBee didn't have any, nor did Hot Topic or Waldenbooks (Yeah I started getting desperate :D ) Also ran back by TRU and saw that they still haven't gotten any more 5 packs, I asked about the singles and the guy said they weren't getting any this week and to try back next Wednesday

I called the Durham TRU today and talk about rude. The lady that answered the phone really acted like it was inconvenience to check on the 25th Anniv. 2-Pack. I even offered to give her the sku # so she could look it up. She was rather curt and said that she needed to know what the item was first. Then she put me on hold. I'm not even sure if she had anyone look. Nice customer service at that store.

The lady at the Fayetteville store was much nicer. She looked it up by the sku # and had someone check the floor. No luck but much more pleasant to deal with.

Saved some gas but in the end, came up empty.

lpburk2
07-18-2007, 07:17 PM
The K-Mart in Reidsville had all the single figures today. They had the odd price of $6.29. My wife picked up the whole lot for me, including the alternate Snake-Eyes.

Happened into the Thomasville Kmart today; found 4 single carded figures (Stormshadow, officer, both Snakeeyes). The also had the new Sigma 6 (Ranger, Night, Ops, Marine).

Wal-Mart in T-ville had nada.

If anyone's looking for sigma 6/commando items I saw the Target on Wendover in Greensboro had the red cycle Bat thing that looks like an Eva Unit and transforms into a bike

Found a whole case of the single figures at K-Mart in Winston-Salem yesterday. I don't think they had just been put out and it was 8 pm so it looks like they had probably been sitting there all day :) I left all the Storm Shadows and Snake Eyes as I already had those

captainamerica
07-23-2007, 08:32 AM
tried Burlington Kmart and walmart and Cary TRU yesterday. nothing.


I'm looking to trade Snake-eyes (blk wolf) and Storm Shadow for loose singles from the 5-pack (snake-eyes, scarlett, cobra soldier).

I found a new "case" of single carded 25th Ann. Joes yesterday @ the K-Mart down in Rock Hill, SC. I only bought one of each figure, but that only left 2 SE and one SS left.

Now I'm asking myself why or why didn't I go ahead and pick up that black Timber variant they had left?!

No singles though.

Ran to a bunch of Targets this morning (I want to get a Joe 5 pack for customs :) ) Here's what I found

Greensboro:
Wendover - Nothing, not even shelf space
Lawndale - Single figures, no officers, many bent cards and no 5 packs...but there is a tag for them and shelf space
New Garden - Their computers say they have them, but they're not in the back

Winston-Salem:
University Pkwy - Nothing, not even in the computers

The Target in Monroe has completed the action figure aisle reset. I found Hooded CC and Cobra Officer this morning. That's all they had.

4 empty pegs for the figures with labels, so I assume they will be restocking soon.

I didn't see any 5 packs and no shelf space alloted for them.

sidiously darth
08-06-2007, 11:41 PM
I found the 5-packs at my local K-Mart the other day but no single figures. I've started noticing space at Targets for the figures and the 5-packs but it's usually empty.

Saw the next wave at SDCC but not sure how long before they start shipping.

I just posted this on another thread but it applies to NC, too:

"I went to the Tuesday Morning in Woodfin, NC and bought their only BAT Troop Builder set for $3.99!!! They had tons of Sigma Six stuff (which I HATE), too. I called the Tuesday Morning in Hendersonville, NC but they didn't have anything."

Also, I got all 15 of the 25th Anniversary figures at TRU a month ago, but have never seen them at any store in Western NC or Up-State SC since! I still need a Snake-Eyes with black Timber variant and want another Flint and Cobra Officer.

Shogi
08-07-2007, 01:02 PM
Target on Wendover in Greensboro just put out all their 25th joes (I grabbed a Joe 5 pack and left everything else)

Also got 2 Internet 2002 Bat 6 packs from Tuesday Morning in Winson-Salem. Didn't see any at the one in Greensboro yesterday

Anyone going to the Joe Con in Atlanta at the end of September? I'd really like to get 1 or 2 of the Rowdy Roddy Piper figure. I think you have to attend to actually get it.

Finally got around to opening my Silver and Gold Destros. Pimp Destro is ready for The Baroness to make him some money.:eek: Does anyone have one of the original Destros that came out in this paint scheme?

The Super Wal-Mart in west Asheville just got a case of Wave 2. The Cobra Trooper redeco was the last of new figures left so I grabbed him. There were several Cobra Commander, Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadows hanging on the pegs... if anyone living in western North Carolina spots Buzzer, Serpentor, Beachhead, Lady Jaye or picked up any extra figures down at the Atlanta Con please IM me.

Target on Wendover in Greensboro also got some Wave 2 items yesterday. Apparently Serpentor, Buzzer, Beachhead, CC and SS sat on the shelves for 12 hours before I got there to grab Buzzer.

I found Wave 3 at the Kay-Bee's in Hanes Mall, Winston-Salem. There were a lot of them on the shelves when I left yesterday. I don't know who was there before me, but the cards were bent and ripped. It took a lot of sifting to find cards that were in reasonable shape. I don't know if it was the employees carelessly stocking the shelves or a ****ed off collector, but the only cards that were bent were the Zartans and Fireflys.

I know I'm late in posting this, but Friday night I found 4 full pegs worth of wave 3 at Wal-mart in Kernersville! (I only needed 3 figures so I got me my green Stalker, non logo Zartan and a fixed Firefly :) )

Western NC (Asheville) has been totally dry since the beginning of December. I haven't seen any of the comic packs ever. It's been weeks since I saw Wave 4 or Wave 5. Also, I know a lot of board members have been reporting finding the 5-Packs at discounted prices at all the major retailers, but they are all still $24.96-$29.99 here!

Shogi
12-28-2007, 12:21 PM
Nothing new around the Triad either. I haven't seen ANY of wave 4, 5 or comic packs. all the Targets have 5 packs on clearance but I haven't seen that at Wal-marts.

Today I saw 2-3 cases of wave 3 revision in the Winston-Salem Target on University but I think it was an old assortment. All the production codes were old ones and all the stalkers didn't have the crotch fix

Today's Target rounds: (All in Greensboro)

Wendover - 40, count em, 40 single figures! (5 cases worth) all wave 3

New Garden - 3 cases or so of wave 3

Lawndale - Five wave 3 single figures


I called the Kernersville store with the Comic pack DCPI # 087-06-0336 and they had none what so ever, but the guy told me what stores did and how much they have (Now whether or not these are on the floor to be sold, is another thing)

GSO:
Lawndale - 16
New Garden - 8

High Point - 8

Winston-Salem:
University PKWY - 8
Hanese Mall BLVD - 16

Update: I stopped by the W-S University PKWY Target and asked about the comic packs. The guy punched it up in his handheld and told me they have 8 of them and that they're not in the back. Apparently, due to the upcoming reset, they are on the floor......somewhere. He said they should be somewhere in the toy aisle. I checked ALL the toy aisles....they weren't there. I'm willing to bet a lot of these stores will have them on Sunday though (I just have to pick which one I want to try :) )

Friend of mine picked up Wave 1 of the comic 2-packs for me yesterday at Target on Capital Blvd. Thx to Axelay for the info that I passed along to my friend.

I actually like the color schemes on the repacked figures. Any idea why Abernathy's code name is GI Joe "Hawk"? Are there some naming rights issues like Hasbro had with some of the Transformers?

On a much larger toy note, there's a toy show at the NC State Fairgrounds Jan. 12 & 13. It's located in the Kerr Scott building as usual. Come by and check it out if you have a chance.

I still haven't seen any of Wave 4, 5, or the 2 packs in Burlington. I did have a Joe related sighting last night, though. Sgt. Slaughter was at Pregos Italian restaurant beside the Burlington Mall yesterday. For someone like me (who grew up with G.I. Joe toys and watching wrestling), it was surreal to have him sitting in the booth behind me. My wife encouraged me to talk to him, but I didn't know what to say and didn't want to interrupt his meal.

I tend not to bother people when they're eating. You never know how they'll react. Even in a restuarant, you expect some type of privacy and considering it was the Sarge, you may have gotten what I received at SDCC 2007.

If he'd been with other members of the WWF, I might have considered approaching them after they finished eating. But he was with a middle aged couple; I don't know if they were family or friends. They were talking about setting him up with someone they knew. Maybe one of my Burlington neighbors will end up being the future Mrs. Slaughter.

Edit: Thanks to Shogi, I was able to get all the comic 2 packs at the Wendover Target.

The first wave of the two-Packs finally arrived in Western North Carolina's only two Targets on 01/01/08. Special thanks to P-Rev for the head's up!

The figures aren't as bad as I thought they'd be. They all benefit from bbi or Marauder's Inc. guns instead of the ones they come with, though.

Still hoping that Wave 5 will see heavy distribution here soon!

I found wave 5 at the Hanes Mall Blvd Target. I got one of each of the new figures, leaving the Snake Eyes. As I'd heard from several other people on here, when the cashier scanned them, the register said the item did not exist. When asked, I feigned ignorace and the manager came over and entered a bunch of keystrokes and it rang up at $1.99. I really didn't expect it to happen. For a split second I seriously considered going back and picking up the rest of them, maybe to sell on here for a buck nintey-nine, but I've had pretty crappy luck selling on here and I don't army build. So, I left them for the next guy.

Most, including ours, were going for $8 each. Not a bad price if you've spent a good amount of gas driving around and finding nothing. Most people were looking for wave 4 and 5. Unfortunately, my distributor has been coming up dry on Joes. He's having trouble with his Hasbro Rep and can't get any. Sounds like Hasbro hasn't really done much to boost production numbers.

I actually found singles on a Wal-Mart shelf this morning. Problem being, they were wave 3. Resets were done over a week ago, and at that point they have 4 pegs for singles and 3 pegs for comic packs. Today when I went and found wave 3, they only had 2 pegs for singles and no pegs for comic packs.

I'm starting to wonder if the retailers can even get the product from Hasbro.

I found Wave 4 at one of my Targets and one of my Wal-Marts this weekend (Jan. 19-20). It looks like my TRU and a Target also got in one case of Wave 5 each based on the Shipwrecks and Hooded Cobra Commanders I saw hanging on the pegs. Too bad I came too late to snag them.

I attended WonderCon this past weekend. The show was great but nothing on the Joe front. Not one seller had figures from Wave 6 or 7. I came up dry on vintage vehicles and playsets as well.

A rep from Hasbro (Patrick) was at the Burlington Wal-Mart this morning. I was looking at Star Wars figures at the time, but told him I was mainly interested in G.I. Joe. He said they were really hard to come by; one of the Wal-Marts in Greensboro has been trying to get them, and he hasn't been able to get any more from corporate. I asked him about the upcoming Indiana Jones line, but he seemed most exicted about Iron Man and The Hulk.

For the other Triad peeps here, You can try to hit the Wendover Target but you'll probably come out berated and empty. They believe that the toys have a Street Date. The guy that told me this was the same guy who got very angry with me when I handed him a DPCI # last year. Mind you he wasn't as angry this time, but he thought I had found some on the shelf at another store and told me I was lucky to get those.

However, if you go to the New Garden location, they have very nice employees who know what they're talking about and will go in the back and bring you a whole case (Just because they noticed all 3 vehicles were different colors and didn't know which one I wanted :) )

I don't know how Lawndale will treat ya. But I do know ALL 3 Greensboro stores have at least 9 at each store (I don't know if that is 9 cases or 9 items, The Target in Winston-Salem told me this info. Apparently as of Monday night, Greensboro was the only city in the area to have them)

For those roaming the Clayton/Garner Targets, the White Oak Target has 0 vehicles on hand. A friend of mine had checked the Timber Drive Target earlier today (Tuesday) and was told the same thing about April 13th. Well, I stopped by there after leaving the White Oak store just to see what I could find out. I took Karen with me for good luck and guess what was sitting on the floor at the corner of the action figure aisle. A freshly opened case of Joe vehicles. I marvelled at their beauty and relieved them of their box. No one stopped me and they rang up. WooHoo!

I have no idea why these were sitting on the floor but there was no street date on the case. I'm not waiting for the phone call from Target to bring the toys back. I used my checkcard so they can track me down.:D

W-S University Wal-Mart had no single figures at all. I asked the stocker lady if they had anymore and she said they were completely sold out. (I'm assuming they didn't get any figures at all last night)

The Burlington Target receive them yesterday. They also received three cases of wave 9 figures. By the time I got there, all the B.A.T.s were gone. Oddly, whoever was troop building the B.A.T.s apparently doesn't share the same fondness for the Snow Serpents, as all three were still on the shelf.

Nope, no sign of them here yet. As long as they keep fulfilling pre-orders, I'm hopeful that mine will ship soon, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one.

It's amazing what some of our fellow collectors at Hisstank have devolved into over these 2 vehicles. They are starting to sound like some of the irrational children that populate the boards over at rebel scum.

There's been no signs of them around here but the "reset" date is Sept. 7th and the stores have to the end of next week to get it done.

Hi guys!

The ecrater store is back up and running. Well, the GI Joe section is but that's the most important part, right?

http://theouterrimcollectibles.ecrater.com/category.php?cid=470290

I still have plenty of the Extreme Conditions sets available and should have more Firebats and Sharcs next week.

Monday is the big day for Wave 10. I still have a few cases available for anyone interested...$65 per case.

I've added more loose 25th vehicles and figures as well. If anyone needs anything, please contact me.

Quick update guys:

The eCrater store is on hold again. There's been a change in plans. We've decided to do MonsterCon (http://www.comicmonstore.com/convention.htm) this weekend in Concord.

Putting the store on hold prevents conflicts from online sales and show sales. I appreciate everyone's patience and understanding.

Wave 10 has been very popular. Unfortunately, sales for it are done for now. If I get more in, I'll let everyone know.

Thanks,

Wally World had Resolute sets
Target had Python Patrol Conquests
No figures really to pick from beyond Ripper...
