I'm new around here and I just wanna say I'm really happy hasbro decided to release these 25th anniversary figures. I was obsessed with GI Joe as a kid and had a nice collection of figures and comics, went on to collect some star wars toys when they started the power of the force series, got tired of it and for the last several years my action figure collecting has been reduced to occaisionally searching for mcfarlane sports figures of my favorite teams. I would always check on the Joe selection but there was nothing that really reminded me of the real Joes ( I did buy a sigma 6 storm shadow that looks similar to the original).
So I heard they were finally making a live action Joe movie and went to the net to look for some info when I came to YoJoe and found out about the 25th figures. I went out yesterday and scoured my local stores, picked up the cobra 5-pack, a Snake Eyes & Stormshadow and they are AWESOME. Couldn't resist opening up the 5-pack and putting them on diplay, still cant decide if I should open the other two or not. Kind of want to but the cards are great too. The only other on card figure I could find in my area was hooded cobra commander which I passed on for now but regret because it seems Stormy and Snake Eyes are the easiest to find? How many waves are actually in stores now? Any other collectors in Southern Ohio/Cincinnati area who know where the newer waves could be found?
Sorry for the rambling first post, just excited to have a reason to restart an old hobby. Happy hunting.
