Default What are the chances of G.I. Joe: Retaliation toys making it here?

If we are to follow this post over at the HissTank message board, probably quite small:

If you wish to purchase the GI Joe range of product you would have to find a site that sends to Australia. I am sorry I cannot assist you."

Probably nothing I didn't expect.


Mind you, anything can happen between now and then (HintHintRejectShopHintHint).

Remember that often Hasbro Australia talks out of their behinds. They said that the Hasbro MP-10 would not be released here but TrU simultaneously confirmed that they will have it in stock later in the year.

Not great I'd say. Though only a handfull of toys look worth getting anyway as it is likely they suffer from Hasbro Movie Toy syndrome.

To answer your question... no chance at all, unless some toyshops purchase their stock from overseas suppliers and bypass the local Hasbro toy reps/suppliers. but still, pretty slim.

I asked TRU Parramatta today, a guy that works there thinks they will get some. But I think he is just guessing... ?
