Why does everyone assume that just because they actually found something, the "scalpers" must not be at work anymore?
Oh, that's right... because it must have been a scalper at work when they didn't find anything.
Dudes, guaranteed there's more collectors and kids buying these things than scalpers.

Army Builders can be to blame for the absence of BATs and Snow Serpents and the various faceless masses, more than anything. If you can't find one, it's because someone else bought 5. This is why I only have 1 (or none) of the Army Builder dudes (still never found a Cobra Airtrooper, Officer, or regular soldier). It was merely luck and the TRU SRO Pack and 5-pack that scored me my Crimson Guards.
But then you see a guy with unopened boxes of the new waves, or, my favorite, the guy last year with a shopping cart that had like 10 Bumblebees back when they were the impossible to find item.
Luckily, this elusive Wave 10 will have a calling card. Arctic Snake Eyes (the green one in the parka) with a non-foil card is packed in with Wave 10. If you go to your store and see him, you'll know you've been beaten.
I see what you did there.
