They did, however, have the new G.I. Joe “Rise of Cobra” Senior Ranking Officers 3-packs in stock.
Coming in at $14.99, they had the pack with a recolored Sgt. Stone, Speed Metal, and “Grunt”.. who is basically a recolored MP Zartan figure.
Personally I do not like the new coloring for the Elite-Viper versus the single-carded version.. but that’s just my opinion. The colored visor is nice, but the main body color doesn’t look as good as the previous blue. The new Viper Commando has a newly painted helmet, which looks pretty cool.
Also at TRU today, I did see the new Unimax “Assault Force” figures, and 1:32 scale items. These appear to be the EXACT same items Target is carrying under their “Bravo Team” line.
It is nice to see these outside of Target, and for the same $4.99 price point. They also had the $7.99 para-trooper figures as well. These were also the exact same as the Target figures, just with new card art.
Finally, when I was purusing the isle, I noticed that they had a “Best of the 80’s” DVD pack and a “Arise Serpentor” DVD pack with the straps on Dusty! I had never seen these at retail before personally, so it was very weird that they showed up now.
That’s all for now.. no sign of the “Assault Force” 1:18 LAV-25 out west yet.. maybe on Saturday!
Update! Visited a 2nd Toys R Us on my way home (In Ventura, CA) and they also had 3 of each SRO set.. no LAV-25 but they did have the 1:18 scale Shermans.
