View Full Version : Joe Muggs $4.99 on Urban's website.

I've been collecting for some time, but new to the forum, and I thought I'd share:

GI JOE Muggs on urbanoutfitters.com are going for $4.99. Duke, Snake Eyes, Cobra, and Storm Shadow. Not sure if they ever had the full set, and these are just the left-overs, or if these are the only ones they ever stocked online.

BUT if you've been resisting or holding off for whatever reason, or your local retailers don't stock 'em, I'm pretty sure these prices CAN'T be beat. I've been focusing on the Marvel line, but I may give in to these prices. So grab a few while you can, before they run out, or worse, before they go back to urban's "regular" price of $20-22!

Hope it helps!

thanks for the heads up! 5 Muggs for $31 is quite a deal! I bought a ton of Storm Shadows since he's a lot of white, he's gotta be good for customs and he comes with a sword! I already own all the Joes for collecting purposes, these will be good for building a custom stock.

Nice, I'll just order the ones I already have and return these (or return whichever ones have worse boxes). Even after shipping I'll save $7.

And btw, if you order $75 or more, just use the code TEN4U and you'll get $10 off. I didn't spend that much, so I can't verify, but it should work.

Thanks for the heads up. Now I gotta dig up some of my old receipts... I think there's only one more Snake Eyes left at the time of this posting.

Man, I would have bought these if they had all 4, but I don't think it's worth it for just Duke and Cobra Commander. I've been trying to avoid getting the GI Joe Muggs, but this would have pushed me over the edge. I really am curious if they are on sale at the brick and mortar stores.

The thing is, if you buy from a retail store's online site, you wouldn't know the condition of the boxes. There's no knowing on how much damage is done! They don't care much really, they just ship and handle out cheap toys in a box. Just something you should be aware of.

it looks like they disappeared FAST. i'm glad some of you guys got to pick some up in time.

i went to urban yesterday here in san diego to find some missing pieces, and they have dozens and dozens of these muggs and the boxes were in excellent shape. hopefully the warehouse team stores/ships them in similar condition. but even if the boxes are a little trashed, $4.99 is a great bargain for customizing or loose display

oh, and all the muggs were still $20 at the b&m stores

Oh by the way, my sister's boyfriend got some marvel ones at Urban Outfitters for like $20 per and opened them. He saw a better deal and returned the ones he got at UO as opened. He got his refund because it was never checked. There's a halloween story for you :). I hope it scared some of you muggers.

I just got my 3 joes today (cobra commander, snake eyes, storm shadow). Oh god, the horror. The boxes aren't in very good condition (not crazy beat up, but still dented/creased), and they put a huge sticker on the top of every one of them with a barcode. The precious tops! And my storm shadow has been opened and the sword is missing! Jesus christ monkey balls, don't ever buy muggs from UO.com (and only if they're on sale from UO period).

my 3 came today. there in great condition,the box's.

Mine did also have the sticker, but if you peel slow, they come off in one shot.

hopefully the other orders will come in better shape...

my only MM experience with UO was great, although it was at the actual store so i could see what i was getting into, and the barcode sticker was easy to peel off. just do it VERY slowly.

i will say, though, if they ever stock the entire marvel line online at UO, especially at $4.99, i'd take the risk.

Just got them in. I'm happy that I already have a set or I'd be very disappointed in the one's shipped to me by UO. Expect C6 to C8 condition on these boxes. I guess I won't feel too bad for opening them up.

They're still at regular price, $20-22, at the UO in San Antonio (as of this last Friday night). Hulks, Black Spideys, Dookus, Ventresses and Tarkins. They had a Megatron, so I don't think they're droppin' their prices any time soon.

I would have to NOT recommend ordering from Urban Outfitters online store if you collect Muggs to keep in the box. I ordered 5 muggs at the $4.99 price and they came in terrible condition. They all had huge stickers slapped across the top of the box, some had even larger stickers across the back of the box. Some boxes were slightly worn, one looked like the "Walmart fat kid" scenario as if it had been sit on and used for a little impromptu aisle hockey match. I would not recommend them. Luckily I bought the muggs for customization, but I still want the boxes nice so I could customize them too if time permits. Despite the great price, I was still disappointed in the delivery condition.
