so i went to walmart a few days ago, and they had the first wave 10 figure ive seen in stores, it was a mutt & junkyard, i looked threw all the pegs which where full by the way but nothing else just this one wave 10 fig. they had some revisions, and wave 9 but that was it. so i was thinking if the pegs are full then why isnt there more wave 10? why only one fig. so i found a employee and asked her if she would go in the back for me, she replied saying that was all there was if it was on the pegs. which is bs, im sure she just didnt feel like checking but i dont understand how just one wave 10 fig made it there and nothing else.
well to add a twist to my story, the manager at my walmart is a toy collector, i know this because ive had a few discusions with him, hes a good ten yrs older then me but said he collects star wars, and i assume he is a scalper on the side because he was telling me how he takes all the hot wheels treasure hunts and sells them on ebay, but anyway im wondering if he has been taking the joes. it would make sense. a few times a week when i go up there he is alweys stocking the toy aisle late at night. well ive been hoping to run into him and i did tonight! and i asked him about my dilema with the 1 wave 10 fig and to my astonishment he goes in the back and pulls out wave 10 and 11 and said ive been holding these for you because you are alweys asking me for them, i shook my head in amazement because this has never happened to me, in the case are all my wave 10 figs ive been waiting for and low and behold a varient wraith! next box has all wave 11! said he had just got them in earlier in the day. and i shit you not he says hold on, i got something even cooler, he goes in the back again and comes out with what? the freaking mobat tank and red hiss with trouble bubble!!! moccasin and copperhead!!! bingo! then i woke up from my dream with nothing but disapointment and messy hair,lol gotcha!!!

I knew you were dreaming when you said you found ANY wave ten in the store.

I was there with ya till the end. The Target pack set off some alarms.
BTW, If the one Mutt figure you found was not part of the dream. I can explain how that happened. It's called Wave 10 Revision 3. Each case has 1 Mutt figure and a lot of other older figures from waves 5, 6 and 7

Remember that episode of Family Guy where Stewie gets on the jet, flies to LA, buys a ladder, takes a cab to Will Ferrel's house, climbs the ladder, rings the door bell, and jacks him in the face?
"THAT IS NOT FUNNY!"
But seriously I found wave 14 at Venture... extra points if you remember what Venture was...
