Yeah, I was lucky to have been on BBTS when they had a substandard set of Wave 6 (Why substandard, I dunno, looked fine to me) but have NEVER seen them at retail...Kinda want another Torpedo for parts in Airtight and Ace customs.
Hint, hint ;)

Exactly...NOT ONE troop builder here...That's no way to build an army of hiss drivers!
But yeah..wave six hit here like a week after long delayed wave 5...I grabbed them all and have seen only R&R & Torpedo a couple of time...never saw another CC since.

Only seen one complete wave at walmart and have not seen armored cc or torpedo again I had to resort to ebay for my second set.also I have only seen Snake eyes from wave 5 once at retail. so far these have been the hardest for me to find in my area

Good news though! According to BBTS, There is a wave 4 revision case with Rock & Roll, a wave 5 revision with Armored CC, and finally wave 9 will ship with Torpedo. So I would bet on these showing up again at retail within a month or two.

I saw Wave 6 only twice here in NYC and Long Island. One of each figure twice that is. The first ones I saw were at a Target and the cards were bent. The second time saw them at a Walmart and I purchased them. I'm not happy with the paint apps though.
I get to these stores when they open because I work the overnight shift from 10PM - 6AM. I'm actually there before the "scalpers" and I watch them get ready, but they never go for Joes anyways. They usually get Hot Wheels, Lego, and Power Rangers. The worst part about this is that I was doing this about 4 or 5 times a week hitting at least 4 Walmarts and 4 Targets within 2 hours and nothing. So I'm wondering how much of Wave 6 or any other wave for that matter does NYC and Long Island ever get because I'm not seeing an abundance.

I saw quite a few sets of Wave 6 a couple months back. Still looking for Vipers and Hiss Drivers from Wave 7 and all of Wave 8 except CC.
