Checking stores on a daily basis usually works out, but the most reliable way to get what you want is to buy it online!

I've gotten what I've wanted out of the new releases through trading on here mostly, then after that using online stores when I see good deals.

I hit up TRU, Kmart, Target, Khols, Stop n shops, Comic stores, KB toys and now my local Shop rite has sum joes
i have had the best luck with wave 10 and i got 2 wave 11 figz so far from my 2 local Comic shops witch i guess order these from online so they get the new stuff way before the regular chain stores
i just try to frequently check these spots out whenever ever im around them and i have found everything i need lil by lil using this method
sumtimes u hit dry spells and it sucks but i find having patience and keep doing ur rounds and ull find stuff

I have stores I hit regularly, also I try to find out when they get new toys in and only go those days (With the holidays though, that plan is shot to hell)

i go to the same stores once a week. if i cant find what im looking for i try to trade something i dont want on here, the almighty hisstank.com, if i really cant find it i get it of a nameless auction website.

I go to my local wm,kmart,target,kohls and if they dont have anything i call around to other stores outside my area. But its been very dry with w10 so i buy from a member on here. I may just start buying online because im sick of driving around finding nothing and start saving gas.

I travel anyway...so i stumble across them. I only order specialty custom, mail-away, variant, and exclusive stuff online.
I have found every figure in the stores, including multiples of wave 10, a black timber SE. black headed destro, shipwreck variant, zartan variant, all the vehicles.
The only one I never found was "yellow" stalker, and I have not seen an "variant wraith" in stores yet.
I hit at wal-mart, target, kohls, k-mart, k.b toys, toys r us, shop-rite, giant.

I check Wal-Mart every other night, sometimes every night if I suspect something new is on it's way. Go at 10:30 PM and look at the boxes they bring out, and then POLITELY ask an associate to open them for you. DON'T STEP ON ANYONE'S TOES!!!! If there is a nother collector (READ: COLLECTOR) there doing the same thing, they get first dibs. That's how I met Slaymaker from this forum!
I live in a dinky lil college town now, so I don't really run into collectors or scalpers now, so it's kinda a blessing.
CHECK PLACES like Walgreens, I got all of Wave 3 back when it came out!

Now that I don't have to search for the revision Wave 1 Flint because he's coming up in the new 5-pack I'm pretty much all caught up with the revisions that I wanted (got single card regular Storm Shadow today) so I'll probably just go to my local comic book store from now on and pay the extra few bucks to get the new Joes I want. *shrugs*
