If that ends up being the price of Retaliation figs, I predict the end of GI Joe.

Why they would do that is beyond me, they already admitted GI Joe was "Langquishing at retail" and yet took away articulation (Already alienating much of the core audience) but then again no one ever accused the Joe team of being intellegent.

$10.99!?!
Seriously?
So ridiculous. I was begrudgingly paying $7.99. Well at least I can probably grab them on the summer end clearance.

I'm really confused by the price. Star Wars Vintage are $9.99 and Star Wars Legacy are $8.99. Hasbro owns GI Joe 100%, right? So I don't understand them being $10.99.

I call Shenanigans!!! They're just killing it for casual fans, like myself, who might be interested in an odd Joe here or there --- but $10.99 for a single Joe? Hell no --- but its not even like I can get my hands on the ones I want (*cough*Techn0Vipre*cough*).

Yeah, I was up in MN when the prices were going up. I had been buying extra Techno-Vipers when I ran across 'em, but that stopped.

So far it's only Target with the $11, but I'm not sure why they've done it.

Can anyone give me information about the JoeCon exclusives or the mail away figures? I am new to GI Joe and i found this site that wants me to subscribe to get a free figure next year but they have a picture of all these way cool Joes but it doesn't say how to get them. Did I already miss the boat for this year? The only one that I am totally freaking out about is Big Boa. Any information is helpful. Thanks.

Sounds like you are viewing the con exclusive Oktober Guard set, which they are in the middle of revealing and will be available this summer at Joecon for about $300 or more per set.

However the pages do say these are coming at Joecon, so maybe there was something else you saw, more info would help.
