Moving full steam ahead on the discount store exclusive reviews! I’ve already covered Snake Eyes, Duke, and Shipwreck… today we tackle the Cobra Trooper! Is this a comic deco? Cartoon deco? A little of both? Read the review to find out!

The Road to Retaliation continues with my daily reviews, and we start off this Monday morning with the “Running Change” version of Shipwreck! The Navy soldier dons green and brings the fight on land! Check out the latest review on my 30th Anniversary Review page, or just by hitting the link below.
Continuing on with the “running change” versions of those exclusive figures that came out last year is Duke! This Duke is a dark gray instead of the green that we got last year. If I didn’t know better, I’d almost think they were going for a Sunbow version of Breaker homage.

I remember like it was yesterday… the frantic post-G.I. Joe: Retaliation meltdown where everyone was convinced G.I. Joe was dead, the Dollar General exclusives were getting recalled, truly Deth of teh line!11! Here we are a little less than a year later with a good chunk of pretty cool product to look forward to. Included in that product is the “running change” versions of the aforementioned Dollar General figures. So far being spotted in places like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx, these figures promise to be a bit more available than the previous ones.
I was able to get my hands on Snake Eyes, and you can either check out the review on my 30th Anniversary Review Page or the direct link below.
Well, this certainly comes as a surprise. Online retailers Big Bad Toy Store and Entertainment Earth have both opened up pre-orders for the now legendary “Dollar General” G.I. Joe figures. Based on the images shown, they appear to be the original decos and NOT the “running change” versions, but I’m thinking perhaps we shouldn’t take that as a guarantee.
Considering even the “running change” versions of these figures use the original figure on the package itself, I would not be at all surprised if that’s what is being offered here. I would hesitate to recommend people pre-order these blindly, but it might just be worth taking a chance, I don’t know. Check out the links below to stock up!

Keep in mind at BBTS, a few of the singles are already sold out, so going by the set may be your best bet. Pretty inexpensive, too! Check out my reviews for the original “Dollar General” G.I. Joe figures at the links below as well:
