IF YOU HAVE FOUND THEM ELSEWHERE LET ME KNOW, I WILL POST HERE..
ALSO, if you have warnings or notes to pass along, LET ME KNOW!
WARNING!! The African American Adventurer hand can pop off if you turn it too hard, I loosened the pegs up to alleviate this.
WARNING!! Open the box in the store, check your flocking, I have heard numerous tales of bad flocking!! I saw ONE Air Adventurer with no moustache flocking.
My Daughter FOUND THEM IN THE BARBIE AISLE IN ONE STORE.
I AM TOLD THEY HAVE BEEN PUT ON CLEARANCE IN OTHER STORES ALREADY.
I was told in one of my local stores they would not be replinished, but they sold out and restocked within a week....
I keep finding them literally hidden behind other items, in one store I found a bunch laying on their sides behind sigma 6 figures, as if to hide them behind a toy that they knew would never be moved so they could come backl later for it...
IF YOU CANT FIND THEM, MAKE YOUR TOY MANAGER DO AN INTERSTORE ORDER, they will move them from one store to another FREE...
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your JOE SIGHTINGS!
All 4 in boxes
JUST FOUND MAN OF ACTION in Murfreesboro TN at the Old Fort Parway store, the Rutherford Blvd Store was resetting...FOUND 2 MORE at the EAST Town Mall area WM today, it was all they had.
LAND ADVENTURER, with LUGER pistol
AFRICAN AMERICAN GI JOE ADVENTURER.
It says he has a beard.. he must have shaved... but he kept some awesome chops...This is the best figure, but his uniform pants are not great... they gap open....
I am mildly annoyed that the Air Adventurer came with NO "AT" LOGO on his uniform... I already made him a new LOGO.... I opened a few boxes on 8-15 at the store, I found one with NO FLOCKING on his moustache and minimal beard... CHECK YOUR JOES!!!
AIR ADVENTURER OUT OF BOX
My Review... I am really tickled with them, they are as good as I remember them to be in about 1975... the hair does seem thinner. For $10 a pop, well worth it, and you can afford to give them to your kids... these are marketed as toys, not "COLLECTIBLES"... I check the 1971 prices, $2.99, todays prices when adjusted for inflation, is only $1.99 in 1971 Dollars... so these are cheaper than they were in 1971!!
THE REASON THEY NEED TO KEEP MAKING JOES.... Played out....
HELP GET THE WORD OUT, let WAL MART DO WELL ON THIS SO HASBRO WILL KEEP MAKING THEM...
