To all of yous who think that the Ultimate Battle pack is hard too find then you better think again. This thing is really easy to find just like those jets were.
First I feel sorry for the suckers that are paying $200.00+ for these off ebay.
I went to Target today and gave the employee the DPCI nuber and they had a total of 6 of them in stock. Now tell me how do any of you think that a scalper is going to come along and buy all 6 of them at a whopping price of $62.99 each.
That is too expensive for a scalper to scalp up. You see thats what wrong w/ all of you, you all go into this crazy panic mode thinking that you will never find it. That is not true all you need is some patience. So what if someone on the HISS forums starts a thread about I found it first. The first thing you have to remember is that it just came out, be patient and you will find it eventually.
So patience is the key here. And I will laugh my ass off when Target puts the Ultimate Battle Pack on clearence for a measly $20.00.
And to that sucker who just plunked down his life savings to a scalper off ebay, I can get you one and sell you one for $300.00 and the Short-fuze that is included in this set is a variant.

Dude people are stupid.....Everyone Freaked out here about the Jets...."Oh no"....."Ill never find them"......"Oh no" "Ill never find the UBP".....blah...blah....blah....those Jets are still sitting on the shelves EVERDAY I go to Target.....Hasbro said they were up production and they did....but face it people these Joes arent Hot Sellers.........
And some satisfaction I always get about people who use Ebay.......I hope that when it comes in they see it the next day at Target......
Of Course people in Canada I can understand them complaining because they dont have Targets.....

Bought two today and few still there. One for my son's X-mas. He's eight and he is going to have a blast with this set.

It's not only the people in Canada but throughout the world where there are no Targets. I have sold 10 UBP sets online and nine of them went to foreign countries because they have no stores.

Personally, I wouldn't even pay 62 for the UBP.
You may also be thinking a little on the narrow side however. the 25th line is not available everywhere outside of the US. Many people outside the US do in fact use Ebay.
Thus when something that is popular and not available everywhere sometimes people pay higher than you might for an item.
While I may agree with you that many people are behaving like children looking for instant gratification, I don't think that there is anything to be gained by taunting and berating them.

I have seen several in the last week or so. I think there will be enough to go around. These are not as rare as some people think.............or want them to be.

There were a total of 25 at one Target I went to today. I would say after Christmas this thing goes on clearance along with the overflowing shelves of Jets. I did also manage to score 15 new figs they were 4 Paravipers, 8 Zooka Troopers and 3 Flint in disguises today while I was out all for 4.99 at that. No wave 12 though. I got two EELS yesterday at Walmart and they price matched so they cost me 4.99 also. IT was a great Thanksgiving.

You are right they do not look to be as hard to find as first thought. However, I'm still glad I got mine when I did it was fun to do the hunt.
