View Full Version : Does anyone have a good idea when the newest wave will be hitting stores?

I just wanted to ask anyone out here if they knew when they would be out...you see i live in central New Jersey and im fortunate enough to have 3 targets,3 toys r us'es,3 walmarts,2 kay bee's and two super stop and shop's within 1-9 miles distance,you might be thinking "wtf? with all those stores near you you'd sure be able to pick alot of joe's if not the whole wave!"..the thing is with more major stores so close together,the more scalpers there are,some even team up n' buy them all up to put on ebay (i sure hell aint gonna spend 15-18 bucks on BBQ,no matter how sweet he looks),and since i dont have a "hook up" or close relative who works there im pretty much screwed. I just wanted a heads up so i myself can get out there Joe Huntin' very early and get me some B.A.T.S...ehhh please help me my HISS Bro's.

Should be pretty soon since there are a lot of loose chinese joes out right now. I think I heard someone say near the beginning of next month or so. I'm likely to believe middle of next month (Based on nothing but my wild guess)

Thanks Shogi for the response,im driving my whole family mad ever since these 25th anniversary figures came out (i found out around like 2 months ago) and i want them all,ive loved them figures ever since was 7. I grew up with 3 siblings so we didnt get alot of stuff,which is fine cause i had an awesome childhood,but now that have lots of dough and a good career i want them all dammitt!!! hahaha....thanks again dude and HissTank.com is on top of my faviorates(just dont tell my clients that).

I know pre-orders suck, but thats only way i have been able to get every wave. I would try pre-ordering the figs. Sure you may have to wait a week or 2 after they hit stores to get them, but you will save time and gas. I have pre-ordered the last 4 waves fomr Entertainment Earth and receive them in a timely manor and in great condition. Think of any other figs you find in stores an added bonus.

Also, another good way to see when a wave is going to hit is to watch the store reports on the board. Wave 7 and 8 I was able to know when to start looking as I pretty much watched them travel across the states. Once they hit Western N.C., I knew in the next day or two they would be hitting my area.

I was still hoping for a June release. July is looking more likely at this point.

I think with in the next 2 weeks we will see someone on the home page finding them at retail..
Wave 7 hit the west cost first and wave 8 hit the east cost first. I never saw wave 7 here, but have seen 4 cases of wave 8.

I just found out the walmart in Watchung NJ will have wave 9 out in july 5th around 7am. My brother in law's best friends sister is a manager there (so i guess i do have connections..go figure..) and she's in charge of putting them out as well as the re-shippings of wave 8 single/two packs. Ill see who ever lives around there on the 5th 7am sharp!

weird cuz i never found any wave 6 in retail! but i seen a few of wave 7 which is a good sign that things are in motion and IMO I think were gonna get SLAMMED! with Alotta stuff this summer!
Wave 9, Wave 2 Vehicles, DVD packs! and hasbro laughs all the way to the bank!!!!!!!!

Probably the 4th of July weekend.

Actually, wave 8 also hit the west coast first. It hit Arizona and California on the weekend of the 17th and 18th of May.

if your unfortunate enough to live in kansas city, then you'll probably see them in august.
