got a second baroness for a friend who tipped me $20 cause he is far but in the same time I was passing through although that was me sitting on the figure for a couple weeks before actually passing by.

Friend in the US found like 5 bludds on shelf and bought me one with the total after ship being $50.50 Canadian.

When it's all said and done I paid just under $20 for the 3. Just lots of foot work and a one time fluke.

I think some patience might pay off on these.

I’ve seen no less than 25 Baroness in the past few weeks in Winnipeg.

Hopefully the other exclusives will course correct like they have with her.

Re: Gi Joe Classified Cobra Island Firefly, Major Bludd & Viper Released in Canada

I just hope some of these Cobra Island figures will show up in stock online. I’m nowhere near a TRU so I really need to rely on toysrus.ca to have a shot at any Cobra Island figures.
It’s been rather frustrating, I don’t intend on collecting them all, but Firefly and Major Bludd were two of my favourite Cobra figures as a kid and besides Flint, Beach Head was one of my favourite Joes, so I’d prefer to not miss out on them.
It feels like with the way that this line has been going, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if another popular character like regular Storm Shadow gets released as an exclusive too, while Crystal Ball will probably see a widespread release, lol….

The rumour is that Barbecue and Dr. Mindbender are coming and at least Barbecue is a CI exclusive.

However this is "Yo Joe June" so Hasbro will be doing reveals and updates so I guess we will find out more sometime this month.

Why do they keep making BBQ, I have never considered him a popular character, yet Hasbro shows him a lot of love. Why not like any of a million other better characters

I’m really hoping they announce CI figures will start to be available on the Partner Exclusives part of Hasbro Pulse in a consistent form.

Wouldn't mind a Dusty or Chuckles.

We've had an Alley Viper on the box art since day 1... Even that would be better than a Barbecue
