Earlier today Hasbro Pulse sent out word that a G.I. Joe drop would be happening on their site. At 1PM, Barbecue and Breaker with RAM Cycle went live there. While they did sell out, it wasn’t seconds. Many folks on the forums scored one. Soon after, they went live on Target proper. WHERE THEY ARE STILL AVAILABLE. I wasn’t even going to post this, as normally by the time the story is up these things are sold out. However, 47 minutes later – both are still available on Target.com. Check the links below and save yourself the heartburn later in the year.
