So in my travels today I found some really interesting combinations of joes on the pegs.
First at Walmart, I found a Snake Eyes with Timber (wave 1) with a bunch of Wave 8 figures and a Scarlett, Duke and Roadblock from Wave 4. To make it even more interesting, the back of the card starts with the number 7 and the stand has just one peg. I am assuming this is a first release Snake Eyes but how in the world did he end up with the others from Wave 7 and Wave 8 when he hasn't been there in the past?
Secondly, there were a pair of Shipwrecks (w/ anchor tattoo) and numbers starting with seven at a Target along with a batch of what looked like three cases of Wave 8 figures. There was also a Buzzer but again, I have checked this store often and there hasn't been a Shipwreck in months, let alone a possible first-release version.
Lastly, the other Walmart near me, had nothing (save for a Serpentor and Buzzer) plus a Crimson Guard. This was another strange combination for me and like the others, the CG was not there in my recent trips to the store.
Where are all these joes -- possibly first releases -- coming from?

I would guess either someone returned them, or they found a lost case in the back.
My brother purchases over 60 25th figures a few months ago. He decided he didn't want them after all and returned all of them at different WM's.
