I found a lone Viper today at Wal-mart. This is the only wave 7 figure I have seen. I still need to find Torpedo and Battle armor cc from wave 6.

You guys need to be at the stores when the doors open.... most places are only getting one case, which is 8 figures. That means one, maybe two, of each figure at the most.
I know from reports on other boards that most Wal-Marts and Targets in Montco received Wave 7 on at least 2 occasions. For example, the new super center Wal Mart in Willow grove had wave 7 on Wed and Fri, the Wal Mart in Hilltown had wave 7 2 weeks agom, and this Thursday.
The new waves go very quick and most people buy what they see to make full sets. None of us can expect to find these at 4 in the afternoon anymore! Sucks.
This is why I order cases from wholesalers.

Allentown, Easton, Bethlehem, Stroudsburg/Poconos areas are heating up in Northeast pennsylvania.
Recently spotted at Wal-Mart/Target stores thru-out each location in past 3 days...
2 wave 7 snake eyes,
2 wild bills,
2 HISS driver,
1 Flag Duke,
0 Spirit (which I am getting P.O'd about because I know I am just missing him when I walk in the door)
5 Hooded CC
3 Cobra Troopers
2 Lady Jaye
1 Rock n' Roll
1 Snow Job
1 Crimson Guard
1 Cobra Airborne Trooper
1 Cobra Commander single carded (from the 5 pack)
And at TRU in Allentown about 3 weeks ago, off Grape Street... 4 of each TRU exclusive Nightwatch Troops and Ninja Battle packs. 8 total.
I know 3 weeks is a long time past to be posting this, but if you know the area, it takes them 3 weeks from Hasbro to JOE shipping, to the stock room, to the shelves. Grape street TRU is SLOW AS MOLASSES with everything they do.
They also cannot keep people employed there, from what I have heard, from the video game counter guy. Which means Product getting to the sales floor is even slower because they are under staffed.
P.S- Big shout out to my girlfriend for picking up most of wave 7 for me, sans SPIRIT, of course. But got 2 vipers.
P.P.S-And yeah, she thinks I am weird for taking inventory on my little notepad, of which stores have what, and making her carry a list in her purse of what I don't have/need for my collection.
P.P.P.S- I make my parents carry a list of what I don't have/need also.
It's just the way it has to be to beat scalpers.

Robinson sucks. Washington is usually a little better. I have a VA appointment there tomorrow morning - hopefully they'll have something in stock between TRU, Target and Walmart.

I asked the owner specifically if he gets his own shipments or raids the walmarts and he said he gets his own. I was glad to hear that.

I spotted Wave 7 @ Bensalem Target today. Here's what they had left:
4-5 Snake Eyes
6 Hiss Drivers
3 Wild Bills
Sorry guys, I snagged the last Spirit. This was at 630pm, so you might be able to grab some once the store opens in the morning. Good luck!
