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

I think it's getting to the point where I will need to be more selective about what Classified figures I buy. It's getting expensive lol. Plus I collect other lines. The GI Joe (and Cobra) roster runs deep so there could be endless figures to come. And that's not even accounting for variants.

I hear you on that. I can't even try to keep up with all the lines going these days, there's so much great product. I've been limiting myself to mostly just Classified and Star Wars Black series and I still already have preorders laid in until December.

I'm not even touching variants yet while there are fresh characters to prioritize (Cobra Commander is the exception here). That said, it's nice to see things moving along with both teams. Cobra has army builders, but the Joes were almost always individuals so nobody looks alike. I think I'm in for any that I can get for this line, even at the expense of other lines.

I’d like to get to that point, but being selective of what Classified figures I buy has been forced upon me, lol. Other than passing on Cobra Island Roadblock, I haven’t even seen another Cobra Island Classified regular figure available to purchase. I was lucky enough to finally get a Baroness w/COIL, but that’s it for a Cobra Island figure so far.
So this line has been pretty easy on my wallet since I haven’t had the chance to purchase a decent amount of the figures I do want to buy.

Exactly, I bought all of the first wave and will be selling some of them eventually, I've lost interesting in some of those characters. And the subsequent waves have had abysmal distribution, with a couple of exceptions, so if I don't see them, I don't buy them.

I've given up on the line and every other line where distribution is abysmal. If it's not on shelf I'm not getting it, these companies are only hurting their sales and reputations in the long run. The irony is that you can find them on the shelves in the US.

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

There seems to be a lot of Major Bludds made this time based on pics of some Targets in the States. Hopefully that bodes well for TRUs here, but knowing our luck those extra Major Bludds aren’t the result of upping production, but might be Targets getting the bulk of the allotment that was supposed to go to Canadian TRUs…..
