I'm a little concerned about availability as well. Since I ordered all three wave on-line so far, I haven't had motivation to hit the stores, but my impression is that wave 2 is struggling to find its way to the shelves. I'm definitely a bargain hunter, but with the ease of ordering on line and having stuff shipped to my door is by far outweighing the hassle of hunting, gas, car wear and tear or sales I might miss. Also leaves me more time to work on other projects, so I'm really hoping that Hasbro keeps up with getting new waves. I just hope retail back up doesn't threaten the entire line again. I know EE seems to be the fail safe, but ordering by the case seems overly expensive given that half of them are straight re-issues.
