So I showed up at 10:30am (a decent hour, I would hope) at the Target in Point Loma and found both SE versions, a Zartan with a purposely bent card corner, and Ice Fishing Destro. None of which are of my interest.
Upon searching the obvious hiding spots, I also found some Marvel Universe figures stashed behind the two Night Ravens that remain. My guess is that I got sniped in the 2.5 hours that Target was open.
But good news for those into TF toys. Lots of new stuff on the shelves and even an endcap!!

It's not some sense of entitlement that I have. Because I'm not a hardcore collector. I buy what I like. But it does take some of the fun away from the hobby when I can expect to find nothing on the shelves unless I'm there at some un-godly hour or stalking the staff like some crazed maniac. And then I think of the kids (of whom these toys are intentionally for) that never get chance to experience the greatness of an Alley or Jungle Viper because some hoarding collector or greedy scalper sniped them out of it, too. It's no wonder we get a bunch of different versions of the same core figures. It's the only way new fans (and kids) will ever get hold of them.
Now that being said, I'm looking for a total of 4 Alley Vipers to build a garrison. Are there any Tankers out there willing to sell me at least one (loose but complete is okay) at cost? And by cost I mean $6.99 - $9.99 + standard postage (about $2.50 for a loose figure in padded envelope - first class postage).

Went to the Wal-Mart in Ghettorama (Panorama) City tonight, and they had almost all of the second wave of POC... every one of them except for Jungle-Viper. Strangely, it almost looks to me like this wave is going to be more prevalent than the first.
I decided not to pick any up though, as I had a BBTS pre-order and want to be sure I get my Jungle-Viper.
I still have yet to find an Alley-Viper "out in the open." And haven't seen Spirit at TRU at all.

I found Wave 2 at Santa Ana Target on East 17th Street by the 5, they had about 2 cases worth of 'em out there, I grabbed 2 Jungle Vipers, a Zartan, a Recondo and a Dusty.
Wave 2 was also at the Fullerton Target on Yorba Linda Blvd. I asked if they had another case in the back, they did. I got 1 of the 2 Jungle Vipers in there as well, now I got 3 of those bastards. They should have the rest of the case put out.
Went to a bunch of TRUs today, too, but to no avail. I'm still trying to find the TRU exclusive Spirit (and MAYBE Quick Kick) if I can.

Checked out the Target at Grossmont Center (La Mesa) at 8am this morn and only saw a lone Storm Shadow. Went to Target on Othello (Kearny Mesa) and they had one Arctic Destro, and a Duke and Snake Eyes from wave 1. Picked up Destro, he's a really cool-looking figure with the green eyes and frosted-over metal dome.
Any wave 2 sightings at Toys R Us yet? I've got a gift card! haha!
Good luck, bros....

Found the cool Marvel Universe comic packs (Dark Phoenix, and Dark Avengers) but nothing but RoC still on the pegs for GI Joe.
Still no sign of W2 for me wherever I go.
