GI Joe Retaliation Wave 2 3 Packs Sighted

A few days ago PlankEpoch found the 2nd wave of GI Joe Retaliation 3 Packs at a Target in Oregon. This wave features a mix of new movie-verse figures such as Mouse and the highly anticipated Firefly(in the Cobra Invasion Team set), which is a well received, modernized take on the 1984 design. If you felt that the previous modern Firefly figures were underwhelming, take a gander, this new one might be “the” Firefly for you!

So far these sets have only been spotted at Target, with an additional sighting by John Christopher Depp at a Target in Iowa. If you’re local Target stores sold through the 1st wave of 3 packs before they were pulled from shelves, chances are you may see these new sets soon. Here is the DCPI#(note that this may share the same DCPI as the 1st sets):

087-06-0317

Happy hunting! The presumed release date at mass retail for wave 2 is February 11th 2013, however these sets are starting to trickle into stores, so be on the lookout! In addition, Plank Epoch has posted his “quick & dirty” reviews of the GI Joe Tactical Ninja Team &
the Cobra Invasion Team! Check them out to see how both sets turned out!

    I found these in a Fairview, Oregon Target today.

    Wasn't too interested in the Joes as I only want Mouse, but I definitely picked up the Cobra Invasion set.

    DPCI is as follows; 087-06-0317

    That's odd. I checked and re-checked the DPCI on the receipt and I didn't make a mistake. Could be your area distributors don't have any of those packs in? Don't know how that would work.

    I called my Target and they said they had one on the floor. It came up as the Ninja Showdown set. They do have one of the old Ninja Dojo sets on the floor so maybe these new 3 packs have the same DCPI's as the old ones.

    It would make sense. It isn't like they are totally different product.

    The Target guy just didn't want to look it up :p (Even if the store doesn't have it, it should still be in the computer due to the prior sets)

    DPCIs track an ASSORTMENT, not an ITEM. All the 3 packs are (by computer reckoning) "the same thing" (they are the same assortment), so a DPCI code isn't going to do you much good if the store still has a bunch of the existing sets in stock.
    Plus west coast tends to get stuff first because they are closer to the docks, so it will probably be a few weeks before areas east might even start seeing them.

    But good to know they are hitting, both are solid sets and a great value.
