Blind Master has a holster. Apparently it is because they re-used a Stormshadow skirt. There is a hole in the bottom of it, so a sai will fit in there.

According to hisstank, Ross is getting some more Retaliation figures from waves 2-4.

I can verify it. However, I hit five yesterday and saw figures at one.

The first Ross I went to had an Alley Viper and the Wave 2 Rock. The line was insane, so I just left. Went to a few other Ross stores. None of them had anything other than Firefly motorcycles, role play stuff, and the 12" figures. So, I made one last trip back to the first store, since it is just up the street. I ended up finding two Alley Vipers and got a Fantastic Four set. Well, 3 figures and a Wall-e looking robot. They also had a Guardians of the Galaxy set, which I left. The sets were $10.

Blind Master and Jinx both had stands. Alley Viper didn't. Its kind of funny how they randomly do that.

The earlier figures were supposedly more kid-oriented, even ones like Alley Viper, who really wasn't. So they didn't have stands. Later figures got stands. Yeah, it makes no sense. Especially when you figure the Dollar General Joes even come with stands.

The FF robot was HERBIE, who replaced Human Torch in the 70s cartoon. Everyone thought it was because they didn't want kids lighting themselves on fire, but it was really that Marvel had already licensed Torch to another company and he couldn't be in that show.

The Firefly motorcycle is surprisingly awesome, BTW.

I got the Firefly bike a while ago on clearance somewhere.

So Marvel named a robot Herbie in 1979, 10 years after the Disney movie?

Got Firefly and Cobra Commander from Tuesday Morning. $5 each. Either I lost Firefly's backpack or it didn't come with one.

Which Firefly? There are at least four (well, two, if you're only counting single-carded).

Not any of the super-HTF figures, but I couldn't pass on adding a Cyber Ninja and (red) Alley Viper to my ranks for $4.99 each.

Ross is now getting Joes for $3.99.

And one is the Night Viper, who almost made me piss my pants when I saw that name in the big messy pile of mostly shit. :mabs:

Yeah, I got a Dark Ninja and another Jinx. I might try to trade the Jinx. They also had various Retaliation vehicles. The smaller ones were $7 and the big ones were $10.
