    That price is still pretty cheap. I wish my local Wal-Marts would carry GI Joe.

    You can raise prices on things that don't exist?

    Maybe WM finally raised the amount that they pay Hasbro for the stuff, so that they will make more, faster! (crosses fingers)

    Same in Oklahoma, BUT the local WM had one of each of wave 6 in finally. Plus the Wii points cards bundled with the Classic Controller glove is clearanced to $12.00 at this store (the card by itself averages $19.99).

    My local wal mart finally has joes on the pegs as well. They're more expensive then before, but there are also more pegs reserved for them. It was all wave 4, but there was quite a bit of it. In the past there was only 3 pegs reserved for joes (and always empty), but now its been increased to 4. It was great to see joes on the pegs again. The only one I picked up was the lone air trooper since I already had the rest. Since my whole collection is opened for display purposes I may go back in the next day or so and if there are any left start picking up a few of my favorites and start collecting them moc. When I saw all those joes I was a little optomistic in hoping that wave 6 might be among them and was a little bummed that there were no comic packs, but I'm more then willing to wait for them.

    An odd thing about my wal mart is I've run into a ton of star wars collectors in the toy isle before (almost always women or parents who were obviously collectors themselves getting something for their kids), but it seems like they havn't updated they're star wars stuff in like 2 months. Besides the wrestling figures (which take up almost half an isle) I'm pretty sure Star Wars is there most popular toy line. I'm not really into the line itself, but I keep looking for that R2D2 with the flames for the air troopers, and in doing so have met some really nice collectors. My favorite experience was a month or so ao when a I ran into a young attractive couple arguing over what figure to get for thier son (who was a sleeping infant barely 6 month old who clearly couldn't have cared less). When they saw me the mom started to get embarassed. I told her not to feel bad since I was an adult without kids who makes frequent trips to the toy isle and in fact its always my first stop. We had a laugh, and the dad told me that the two of them had been collecting star wars figures for themselves for almost 6 years, but there sons collection was already bigger then both of theres combined. Now thats parenting.

    That sounds like one of my shopping experiences. My gf always fights with me over which figures I get. She's definately a COBRA. She hates Duke's square jaw, haha.

    I haven't noticed a price change in Joes here in Kentucky, but I also haven't been seeing anything other then wave 4, and wave 6 at Target. The new wave 7 and new comic packs are nowhere to be found.

    The prices at my local WM was 5.44 also. I had not picked up any 25 annsry. figures before Thurs. They had several single pakcs and a few comic packs.

    I bought SS and roadblock for myself as early b-day gifts They only had one SS.

    It was great to see those joes at a local store again
