Okay, here is the deal. I'm going to start this thread for individuals that need help finding that hard to find toy you just gotta have.

Toys are distributed unevenly through America and with each others help we can balance the distribution out (on a personal level of course).

So if you live in an area that gets certain toys in before others post here! Or if you're looking for a certain toy and just want others to keep an eye out for you well then...post here!

There are some conditions to being part of this though.
#1 Don't Scalp! No one likes a scalper and we make it very unpleasant for you here if you try. If you find something you don't want to let go for what you paid for it plus shipping then sell it on eBay or list it here if you're a store.

#2 See number one.

#3 Just be friggin honest! Really, it's not that hard and people will appreciate you for it. When you send stuff to people be sure to include delivery confirmation for both parties sake and when you buy stuff don't go expecting to get "case fresh" toys!

And with that, I'll start it off...

Recently found Wave 4 of the new Marvel Universe line at my local Target. It contains Rulk, Union Jack, Moon Knight, Hobgoblin, and Blade. These are new and I'll keep my eyes open for anyone else that is looking for them. Target in my area is charging $7.99 + tax for each.

I'm looking for the G.I. Joe DVD pack #5 Best of the 80's and the Gray Hulk from the Marvel Universe Line. If anyone sees these I'm interested in buying them.

Here's a reverse 'gotta have' for Andy and Dan that I found today:



If you guys are interested, I have (2) of them, at my cost $8.00 + shipping at cost! How's that, Jim! (Offer extended to Andy and Dan - if not interested, will list in my store at a bit more...)

Nice, I didn't know anyone was looking for these. I've seen the entire wave at my local stores. Forge, Iceman, Toad, etc.

If you're looking for these just PM me!

This particular one is a repaint. The original commonly found is ice blue with no visible uniform. First I've seen of these! And I knew Dan and Andy would probably be interested because they are BIG ICEMAN fans! I do try to look out for my friends...including those here on CCL!

No luck yet on your request, but still looking! Big Grin

Ah! Ok, I didn't know about the variant. You're way more knowledgible than I am with the X-Men dudes. Happy

Tough to keep up with everything!!!

P.S. There is a new Star Wars (huge fig) Rancor Pit! bout $40. Target only! Cool piece! Don't know how new it is, but first seen today. Also, G.I. Joe single figs may be going on clearance at a Target near you, soon! Probably making room for new movie related stuff. (Just guessing)

I've been keeping an eye on that Rancor. First saw it about three weeks ago. I have the Unleashed version so I'm hesitant to pick it up. (hate repaints)

I've been keeping an eye on the G.I. Joe clearance too. Heard about that on HissTank.com. There are still one or two that I'd like to pick up but only if they're half off. haha.

The new movie stuff is starting to pop up. I don't know what the hard ones to find will be yet though. Not even sure I'll be getting them. If the 25th anniversary line continues I'll be buying those for sure though.

How low are you looking for the Bender/Santa? Do you have a price range?

I live close to the Kansas City metro area, so I have a wide variety of stores to hit Target, Wal-Mart, Toys R Us among the few. So if there is anything that anybody is looking for let me know. A Wal-Mart I was at on Saturday just had a fresh shipping of the Movie GI Joes, I picked up the Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow and Snakes Eyes "Paris Pursuit" with the gray wolf. Im looking for the one with the black wolf and the arctic assault Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. I am also looking for the Arctic Snake Eyes from the 25th anniversary series
