Your point made me think of something.
Back in the day when they had comic cards I used to always pick the packs at the very bottom and case of a specific set(92 marvel masterpieces to be exact) because those packs always seemed to have the "special" metallic shiney cards in there that were rarer.
Maybe a pallet is considered a box of cards, and based on there experiences and consistency with opening cases and such they have a very good idea of which packs do and don't have the "special" variant wraith in there.
So they have a good idea of which packs to open to supply the people who order single packs, while also they can find the variant wraiths to sell.
but at the same time I agree with what people are saying in that online retailers do give people unopened cases, and don't cherry pick them if that is what they order. But if you order a case of just the 6 figures, and cases normally come with 8, they do open your cases, and if you get the variant wraith or the regular on eis hard to tell.
maybe those people who order the 6 figure wave assortment can add something to this. Has anybody received the variant? Does is specifically say on the order page that you get the regular wraith. Some people might not be to thrilled about getting the variant Wraith if they don't like it and assumed they were getting the normal one.
In a sense, this is how business works you know, taking the right risks to make profits.
But at the same time this is my assumption...

Anybody who orders a "sealed case of 8" from BBTS and the case has been opened and then shipped to you can file a lawsuit against them for selling unadvertised merchandise.
BBTS probably ordered a ton of cases and shipped those out but then broke down other cases to ship out the "set of 6" figures that people pre-ordered and probably got a good chunk of the Wraith variants from this.
I would be very surprised if anybody got a Wraith variant from BBTS from ordering just a "set of 6" hence whey they re-sold the others.
I will know first hand if the case has been tampered with because all mine go right to AFA. If I get the uncirculated grade then it was never opened, if the case doesn't receive this grade than it was tampered with because once a case is broken open, it cannot be re-sealed completely to duplicate the "pop" you hear from the box.

I would assume that none of the single card Wraiths ordered from HTS would be the variant since it was not marked as such.

BBTS doesn't open the sealed cases you order - the Variants they're selling they found while opening cases to either individual figures or sets.
It wouldn't be worth their time to "reseal" the cases just to look for a $30 variant wraith. Have any of you every tried to reseal anything? It's a labor and time intensive process. It simply wouldn't be worth their time.
But I can without a doubt say if you ordered the single Wraith, you're not getting a variant. You'll get a variant if you orderd the variant.
