I was surprised and excited to find the Shane with Baseball Cap TV redux figure today at my local comic shop. No other figures, just him, but I was able to pick from 4 so I got one with nice paint apps.

I have no idea what sort of traditional stores might carry these...Walgreen's maybe?

Glad to have this though, I basically decided last night that I am only going to focus on the TV figures going forward, so this seems like a nice unspoken validation of that choice. (Collector logic)

Happy hunting!

No more comic figures? Whhaaaaa? Hopefully you'll quit them after Wave 3 at least. Those figures look spectacular!

As for my recent TWD purchase, I got the SDCC figure... from 2012! I snagged the bloody Michonne with Cloak in a damaged package on eBay for a measly $15. The bubble was crushed and falling off the card, so it was perfect for me as a loose collector. I didn't want to pay the going rates for it as it wasn't "different enough", but for $15 it was a solid purchase. The cloak is a great accessory!

I should have the new Shane figure coming in the mail next week. I can't say I'm terribly excited to add it to the collection, but it's another "different enough" figure that will fit right in.

I received my SDCC exclusive Ezekiels yesterday, another fine effort on par with Negan. They are really nailing the comic line figures now...

Saw the new comic series figures today at my local comic shop...man, those came out well. It was tough to walk away, but I've made my peace with sticking to the TV stuff.

Swear I posted this already in this thread, but don't see it now......

Anyway I received my Andrea last week and grabbed a Rick same day at TRU. Great wave. Love the scars on Andrea's face. I'll probably cave on Dwight the next time I see him.

Picked up the Charred Zombie for $10 at a local comic con today. Will be an opener.

Looks like Walgreen's has WD figures for $9.99 a pop right now on sale. I picked up another Zombie Merle and Shane. Wish I could find some of those "flashback" figs at that price but they don't seem to have hit here yet.

What are the "flashback" figs?

Apparently there are 3 figures being found at Walgreen's right now as part of a "flashback" wave containing Daryl, Michonne and the RV zombie. I have seen varying reports whether these are just recards of the previously released versions or actual variants. I would love to have a chance to compare up close, but they haven't made their way here yet. My buddy in FL picked up all 3 a couple of weeks ago though.

I picked up all 3 "flashback" figures from Walgreen's today, first time I have seen them here. Daryl is the version from the motorcycle deluxe set, which had not been released single carded before. Michonne comes with new accessories, a walker-quarium with 2 pet heads. The RV Zombie appears to be more or less the same as the previous version.

Would be nice to see the next TV wave hit soon...

Anyone picking up the building sets? I'm debating them seriously, would prob help if I saw them up close. I guess TRU is starting to get them in...
