So just when I thought the 4" line was dead I see these from Wave 3:

Elizabeth Swann
Jack Sparrow
Lord Beckett
Will Turner

Anyone seeing these at retail?

I don't think I ever saw them at Target or WM locally.

Yes, I saw those at Target twice, both in the same week at different stores... next thing I know, they are clearing POTC stuff out and the whole line was on clearance.  I had no idea these would be in and out of the store in a matter of days...

I know in MN the Targets up here have clearanced most of the Zizzle stuff. There is some animated stuff out there.

I am just courious to know if NECA is going to be doing a Wave3 for AWE.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

Saw the New "Stranger Tides" figures at Wal-Mart yesterday.

Zazzle has improved their product a bit this time around.

The "flesh" pieces are now cast instead of painted, the head sculpts really benefit from this.

The Large Ship was available as well as 3 "Deluxe" vehicles and all of Wave 1.   There were only 2 pegs for figures.  I guess retailers are learning their lesson? 

Jack Sparrow
Gibbs
Barbosa
Angelica
Blackbeard

were the figures.

Hopefully Wave 2 has some good Generic pirates or British Naval crew.

I didn't think Zazzle did the figures this time around, I thought JAKKS Pacific had them?

I saw these at WM the other day - no interest, but thought the "dead skeleton light" thing was a nifty feature.

Yeah I liked the weird skeleton things on the face...  Weird.

I saw these tonight for the first time...  Custom fodder, which is always nice, though it's a little limited.  The female character was the only one missing.

I spotted them at Walmart last night also.  I picked up one Jack figure and looked at it, it's not bad, but I didn't really look through the pegs to see what all was there.  I don't think I'll be buying any of these, not even for customs or backgrounders.

I have picked up Jack and Angelica so far.  These are much more intersting than the Zizzle figures in my opinion.

I saw these at WM yesterday, the only place I've seen them in town so far.  Didn't look at them too closely, but it looks like there are the smaller scale and then larger "collector" figures, that sort of look like Unleashed with a little bit of articulation.  Again, didn't look closely though.  I might take another look at them.  I picked up a Jack Sparrow from the previous line, just for the heck of it, and may do that again if it is really well done.
