Eh, I dunno. I kinda dig the Roadblock myself, and both Beachhead and Kamakura are good custom fodder. With a new head and some new accessories, Kamakura can make a nice VvV-inspired Night Creeper, while Beachhead is so basic, the sky is essentially the limit.

I just don't understand that reasoning, since that requires them to put cost into development, sculpting, and the molds for the brick drivers. That's a lot of money that mix-and-matching doesn't require, since it only needs one of those steps.

Actual parts production is the issue. Even with all the parts already tooled, a figure with 30ish parts costs more to make than a new figure with 7ish parts.

Good news everyone!

With Saturday Nights plans de-railed by possible food poisoning (damn you Burger King and your chicken sandwiches!), I stayed home to dine on crackers rather than pizza. So in the morning ran to the east-side Wal-mart to get some soup (and scout for any 'new Phyrexia' packs/intro decks/fat-packs/ect that might be hanging about... want my elsh norn dammit!!!!), and lo and behold, they'd gotten in Joes for the first time since they clearanced out the movie figs.

Someone had sniped Sci-fi and one of the zombies, but I did pick up the rest, including law (who I was on the fance about).

He might as well be at one per case. I've seen everyone else multiple times at this point, but I've yet to see SS in the wild.

One per case in a single wave, with everyone else getting held over/added to in the next wave, and that wave being the one getting stocked at many places...

I got a wave 4 case from BBTS... I keep telling myself I don't need him... there have been at least five BEST STORM SHADOW EVARs since 2007, so we'll probably get an even better one soon enough... and this particular mold is getting at least two Retaliation repaints, along with most of the accessories being reused...

You misunderstand. Storm Shadow's in the wave 3 case, and as such is the only figure I wasn't able to get. I'm trying to talk myself out of buying another case of guys I already have to get him... or in the alternative, paying as much as a case just to get him.

The red ninja is going to be Slice, because... well, really now.

The Storm Shadow I will probably make into an approximation of VvV Slice, but call Slash, because I don't need two guys named Slice and I have too damn many red ninjas anyway.

The Snake Eyes will... eh.

Same situation with my Walmart, seems Wallyworld might be giving Joe some support leading up the movie (that, or simply slotted the existing line to "save space" for the movie stuff in May).

Either way, I might be seeing new Joes locally again (and not at a collector/drug store prices!)...right after getting all I wanted via Walgreens and TRU.com... icon-megs.gif
Hell, knowing Walmart, they won't even get any Joes (or if they do, it will be one or two piddly cases) until they start build up for Retaliation.

The area Target has a Steel Brigade and a Techno-Viper, but my spending limit for that particular trip was $5 (I was primarily looking at getting some cheap Legos) and so I couldn't get either one of them.
