    Is GI Joe: Classified becoming easier to find?

    I found one Flint at our local Walmart yesterday. I was glad to find him, but aggravated I missed the rest of the wave.

    This series is notoriously hard to find on the pegs. Anyone else finding these any more frequently now? I know the Target Cobra Island figures are nearly impossible to come across, given all the (honestly justified) rant videos I watch on YouTube.

    And I know I could preorder these from BBTS or Entertainment Earth, but I do like to have some lines that are a fun "casual" purchase like this. But maybe that's just not in the cards anymore.

    I've seen Classified twice at Walmart. A Cobra Commander and a Scarlett. I've never seen GI JOE Retro at Walmart. I've never seen the Target exclusives.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    There is a ton of it at my local TRU.

    I hope they increase volume because every dude seems to need extra "for their sons".

    I've seen a few of the Retro offerings, including a Duke yesterday. I passed up Classified Scarlett and Roadblock once, early on, just because I had dropped a lot of money on toys around the time. Big mistake. Never saw them again.

    Really? That's fascinating. I don't think any chain can keep them on the pegs in the US, either due to poor distribution, bad ordering practices, whatever.

    I've heard MOTU Origins is much easier to get in Canada as well. They get the new assortments about a month or so earlier than the States too.
