G.I. Joe hunting - with previews of the upcoming waves

I've recently found that the GI Joe 25th Anniversary figures are becoming slightly easier to find in stores. It seems Hasbro is upping production on this extremely popular line. Many of the previous waves have been almost non-existent in stores, snatched up immediately by rabid collectors. Wave 9 is in stores now, and I actually bought a few of them last night at one of the local mega-chains.

Wave 10 should be arriving in stores around the beginning of September. This wave has a chase figure variant: transparent Wraith (pictured above). So be on the lookout for him.
Wave 11 follows in October, and features Matt Trakker from the classic toy line M.A.S.K. joining the Joe team (pictured below).

Of course, like many toy collectors I prefer to buy these figures at retail in person, so I can pick out mint copies and avoid shipping costs, but I am often forced to purchase some of them online if I want to complete my collection. It's easy if money is no object, but if you are looking for the best online deal on GI Joe figures I recommend Entertainment Earth. Of all the online toy stores, they seem to sell their GI Joe figures for the cheapest. GI Joe carded figures retail in stores for $6.99. You can pre-order the 8-figure Wave 10 and Wave 11 right now from Entertainment Earth for $55.99 which works out to roughly $6.99 a figure, the same as in the stores. Of course you have to pay some shipping, but if you factor in the money you would spend on gas, sales tax and time spent hunting, its pretty much the same. And this way you are guaranteed the figures you want.

I think that everything typed was very logical. However, what
about this? suppose you composed a catchier title?
I am not saying your information is not solid, but suppose you added a
title that grabbed a person's attention? I mean Blogger: Toy Collector News - Post a Comment
is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo's front page and see how
they create news titles to get viewers to open the links.
You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers
interested about what you've written. Just my opinion,
it might make your blog a little livelier.
