it's the same way in columbus too,target gets wave 11 ,wal-martgets wave 10 i think half the problem is all these internet stores try to horde all these cases like bbts ,brians toys,i dont order from any of those companies they take the best figs out of the cases and sell them for crazy money that's bullshit they can keep them ,i have found more than enough of every fig i want ,on the interstate-270 loop we have 10 wal-marts&12 targets, if i can't find what i am looking for then i need to get up earlier in the morning and get up off my ass and hit some stores.........later

Definitely the distribution and shelf space. In my area:
For a long time Wave 10 was showing up at other stores. Kohls and Fred Meyers in my area had them first. Walmart started getting them in a few weeks later. Fred Meyer got in Wave 11 a few weeks ago, Now Walmart and Target has them.
Wave 6 comic packs showed up at Kohls first and started showing up at Target last week. Now Wave 7 is showing up at Walmart.
The vehicles were at Kmart first and a couple weeks later Walmart had them. Target still has Wave 1.
The DVD packs have been all Walmart. Numbers 3 and 4 sighted beginning of the month and 5 just a week ago.
Yeah, so pretty much YMMV depending on your location.
Up until Wave 9, the retailers were the best choice. The Internet stores were struggling to get them in.

Milford CT? My family is up in Milford. My home town is Trumbull CT. I hear CT has turned into a real shithole in the past 10 years. It sucks, there's no more Bradlees & Caldor up there. Bradlees was my store back in the 80's.

Trumbull, CT huh? You weren't on the Little League team that won the World Series back in '89 or '90 were you? Same team that had now NHL player Chris Drury as pitcher.

this topic goes back like when retailers (and they still do) were flooded with Joe & Cobra 5-packs, and early first waves of comic packs. i guess its a trend in the lil' world of Joe collecting.
