G.I. Joe: Classified Retro – Are they worth it?

G.I. Joe: Classified Retro – Are they worth it?

So I hesitate to call this a review, even though it kinda/sorta is a review. Recently I got my hands on the first four G.I. Joe: Classified Retro figures released as Wal-Mart exclusives. Beyond the mangled card backs, the figures have their own pluses and minuses, some, obviously with more pluses than others.

So while I didn’t do a full-blown review breakdown of each figure, I did post a single look at the four different figures, outlining their good points and bad points with a ton of images.

Check out that post right here. It will also be mirrored on the G.I. Joe: Classified Review Page.

GeneralsJoes reviews Wal-Mart Exclusive LAW Battle Station

I bet you guys thought I was going to forget my “review of the day” today, didn’t you?  In all of the “Hub” hubbub, it sorta got lost in the shuffle, but I gotta keep up my end of the bargain.  I’ve already covered the Wal-Mart exclusive Heatseeker and Outpost Defender, but in the interest of filling in those holes, here is the Laser Artillery Weapon!
Of course you can find that review and many others linked back to the Rise of Cobra Review Page.

Alexx Shorts covers the Wal-Mart Ninja Battles set

Normally I might not cover this, but I’m pretty sure I won’t end up owning this set, so I figured it’s only right to give it some due publicity by showcasing Alexx’s latest photographic onslaught, this time focusing on the Wal-Mart Exclusive Ninja Battles set.  Chock full of gear with some…  “interesting” paint application choices, Alexx breaks down exactly what’s in the box and whether it’s worth your time.

The review itself is right here, but check out the images below.

New retail sightings recap – Wal-Mart & Target Exclusives

We’d already heard that the Wal-Mart 2-Packs were available online, but for the first time, according to a HissTank member, they’ve also been found at a brick & mortar store in New York.  Along with that revalation, another HissTank poster reveals that he scored the second wave of Target Exclusives at his local store as well.

Gotta love these August store shelf resets…  Let the hunt begin again!
