Grabbed some groceries at lunch at Walmart.

Also found this in my favorite aisle... My first Red Ninja! I have Gung Ho and Cobra Commander, so they are still there.

Nice score I'm still looking for more of him, but I did get my duke and opener snake eyes! Got em all now just waiting for supreme cc to arrive. Had to do the knife holder mod. He's been busy lately fighting the red ninja while stormy and beach head back him up.

Cool! Glad to hear you got Duke and another SE.

My Amazon SS that I finally ordered Sept 15 is supposed to arrive between Oct 9 and Oct 27.
Today, it said Oct 27, but in the overview it still has that range.

I'm not sure about using Prime long term. I just did a 30 day trial to get Stormy. And I have nothing against them for it taking so long. I'm pretty sure that is Hasbro's side. And Covid. I just hope they aren't waiting for someone to return a smashed up one so they can ship the busted up one to me, lol.

I'm unsure if I cancel Prime before he gets here if they will cancel my shipment?? I guess I should have just paid shipping, that would have been cheaper.

I'm 99% sure that snake eyes is my original one I got as a kid, he has seen meny adventures, I think I got him in a grade school recess trade. Enjoy! The other 2 I think I got in a parts lot years ago.

I'm curious for those at other locations. What was more challenging to find?

Red Ninja
or
Target Cobra Trooper

So far I have only seen each of these one time, and I bought them both. So I have one of each.

A long time ago, I was hoping to find Red Ninjas to trade for Troopers. But with the "Infantry" pre-orders, I think I may just hang on to that ninja for dear life. I don't know if I'll ever see another one in the wild.

I am looking forward to trying to find that Spider-Man Hand Ninja next year some time. That one has the 80's vibe to it.

I have never seen a Cobra trooper in person. There were 2 Red Ninjas when i got my first one at Target. And then i got my second one at Walmart. I really don't think Target is going to get anymore of the cobra island troopers. Mabee not unless they release more of that subset closer to when the movie hits theaters. While People seem to be finding red ninja at target, walmart, and walgreens.

Thanks for the info! Ninjas are a slippery slope.

I was going to avoid the Red Ninja and Amazon Storm Shadow and try to focus on the military looking figures and stay choosey.

I started with Destro and Duke.
Then Snake-Eyes from an online bookstore.
Then got Roadblock 01 for a birthday present.
Bought Scarlett 05 because she looked good in person, but more because she rounded out 1-5 for me.

Was totally lucky to ask a nice person at Target who found me the one and only Cobra Trooper.
Same lady found me a Baroness later.
And she put a Gung Ho at the service counter for me to buy a different time. Need to send her a thank you card!!

Then I found Cobra Commander at Walgreens.
Then Red Ninja at Walmart.

Storm Shadow has been on back order from AMZN for me since mid-Sept. Supposed to arrive just before Halloween.
In between there I also bought a Winter Soldier to be a stand-in Zartan for me.

So my picking and choosing became a dangerous slope. Maybe I need to sell these off and get out. I clearly have mental issues!! :+D

I try to go check target every weekend. Only time they had anything was at lunch and a few weeks later all of wave 2 nothing else. My WM that is close by (we have 2) is always a shit show. No Joe's like ever!! Just that first day. No retro package Joe's they don't even have tags for those. They just finally got the he man stuff, but Capt came through on that way before my store got any. So sadly I've not gotten any extra ninjas or troopers. Oh on a side note cobra island rb sits all alone at target to keep the pegs warm.

Went to Walgreens and Walmart in the town where I work (30 min from home) and both were busts.

But I stopped at my local toy shop that I had forgotten about and he has quite a few Joe's in right now.

If anyone is looking for some older stuff, let me know. He has a hodgpodge of 25th, Eco-Warriors, Ninja Force, Robo-Joe's, and some more traditional ARAH. I also took a video, but I'm not sure if it will com through.
