Well, I was getting too scared about not finding a Storm Shadow for a decent price so I went ahead and ordered a case of wave 3 from BBTS tonight.  I already have Tunnel Rat, Ripcord and Scarlett so I may return those three if I can track down my receipt.  I really only was after one Techno Viper and wasn't sure about the Renegades Cobra Trooper so I'll have to make a decision on those.

But I'm not sure what to do with the Snake Eyes, Firefly and Hazard Viper figures so those may end up for sale.  We'll see. 

Now I have to make a call on wave 4 because I still need Airtight, Law & Order and Lifeline and maybe another Zombie Viper.

Starting to get worried...Still haven't seen any of the new "classic" Joes out in the wild (or the new Renegades for that matter)  I scored a few Techno Vipers off BBTS a week or three ago, but ya...sucky.  3-4 of my local Targets have had 2 or 3 Joes on the pegs for the past three weeks or so with no restock in back and I need not mention the other store that stopped carrying this line.

Any good places left online to pick these guys up at a decent price?  Not wanting a full case.

No?  Not really. 

Every place I've looked, the singles are sold out except for the army builders, carry forward figures or the ones I was able to find, like Ripcord and Tunnel Rat.  The sets are also either sold out or, and this is probably smart on the sellers end, the sets have been built in such a way that you can't just buy, say, Sci-Fi/Airtight/Law & Order/Lifeline and leave the other stuff.  Sets are like, Airtight/Lifeline/Steel Brigade/Tunnel Rat and then Zombie/Scarlett/Ripcord/Sci-Fi.  So you're basically forced into buying a case anyway since you can't just buy the "new" stuff.

I don't know if I've seen any reports of Target getting wave 3 or newer.  It seems they got wave 2 several times and then nothing leading up to Christmas.  My store has a lone Iron Grenadier on the pegs and that's it.  My Walmart got wave 4 once and a Walmart up the road got either 3 or 4 but I'm leaning towards 3.  I've managed to buy Ripcord, Tunnel Rat, Scarlett, Zombie Viper and Sci-Fi off the pegs but that's it.  Probably should have bought that second Zombie Viper but I'm not going to loose sleep over it like I am Lifeline and Storm Shadow.

I haven't checked lately for single figure availability, but again, I'd recommend looking over at Nerd Rage Toys.  After the discount, the figures cost about the same as they would have at retail, and they were all carefully packaged and minty (if you're into that thing).  They also threw in some vintage figures as a free first time customer bonus or something (nothing I really would have picked, but hey, free's free).

I was worried about this wave being like the Low Light wave, which was scarce at retail, so I preordered and it's a good thing...it's an outstanding wave.

I bought wave 4 when I saw it at TRU, before this I also pre-ordered a case from BBTS and it is on the way to me now.  I only want 1 of each figure (except the Zombie Viper) and I was planning on returning my extras to TRU but I would be glad to help out if someone wants to buy the extras from me for cost plus shipping. 

ps - I will add that I still need a Renegades Storm Shadow

I just need the 2 Lifelines if anyone has them...  Beyond that, I'm pretty well set thanks to a lucky WM walk-in right before Christmas.

I hear Walgreens "kinda" carries this line for $10-$13 a pop so I may try there and see what turns up.  They don't get full on cases though - just scraps here and there from their distribution centers.  None of my fellow "tanker" guys have had any luck finding new stuff locally either so....we got sharted...

I guess HTS threw up a buncha cases last night or this morning, but they all got gobbled up.

I went to my local super WM today and it has been reset.  Joe figs were on the plannogram but the pegs were empty.  This particular WM used to be decent about stocking toys but it has gone down the crapper since Hasbro reps came through and did their purge.  They seriously only had 2 Vintage Obi Wan figures on the pegs for months.  Perhaps they are catching up because they did have TPM wave stocked this afternoon in the SW section.

My local store did the reset, but no new stuff on the pegs. I received my wave 4 from a seller on ebay late last week, so I'm caught up myself. Just keeping my eyes open, though.

I am waiting to hear back on a possible trade opportunity, but after I get that squared away I should have close to one of each, if not all of a case of wave 4 up for grabs.  Figures will be for my cost, $9.62 each, plus shipping

just thought I would throw the possibility of this option out there for those still looking.  Whatever no one wants I will just return to TRU.

I will post an update after I hear back on this trade hopefully today.
