Wow, already on clearance for that low?  I saw some about 10 days ago for $14.99 or something on clearance on a Target a few hrs outside of St. Louis.

I didn't check them today but after the first post of them hitting discount I did and they were still original price at my store.

Anywone see the Tread Ripper and Ninja Combat Cruiser?  Apparently both were found at a Target in PA.

I'm more worried about the Wave 1 figures and motorcycles clogging up pegs and preventing that awesome raft w/ diver set from hitting shelves. Hopefully the quantities of re-released "old" stuff will be on the low side.

You really typed that?  >:D Remember this next year this time when you still don't have Jinx, Blind Master, Bruce Willis or the cool army builders like Crimson Guard.  The fact is, even the hype behind a "cancelled" line making it to retail this year didn't generate a complete sell through. The 3-packs may be an exception, but it looks like the stores here got a second case and nobody has touched it.

Shipping more wave 1 next year is a complete cluster.  We'll see how it goes, but I have a feeling come SDCC 2013 the Q&A will be all about how Hasbro promised w2 and beyond and how we still don't have it.

Where did you see the SUV?  I've seen the Tread Ripper (or whatever it is at Target twice the past week, bought one to save for my son).

Target!  I live in MN Chewie!!  Saw 2 over the weekend at 2 seperate stores.  Each only had 1.  I just recently (as of last week) openend my POC V.A.M.P. and it is not my cup of tea, though I do like the doors and the SnowCat's missle launcher on the "Ninja" version.

I have only seen the Tread Ripper down in NC. I want the Ninja VAMP, but I'll probably wait until the March re-release if I don't see it locally.
