OK, we need an updated thread. And please ,do not exaggerate and be honest. What have you guys been seeing in the retail market. I have seen at least 25 grey wraiths here in Connecticut, between Kohls, Walmart, and Target. I bought a blue wraith from BBTS, and everyday I am greatfull to have one. The going rate on ebay seems to be 30-40 with 10 shipping. I noticed people were lucking out with sealed cases from Online retailers in the beginning, but what about retail?
I mean come on, I got two black timbers and 3 black destros at retail. I also see black destros all the time. Does anyone thing we will see blue wraiths turning up in the future or with wave 13 hitting retail are they all out already?
Its weird, there are a lot of hoops to jump through to get a Doc, but they seem to sell for less that wraith on ebay or at least are neck in neck.
What are your opinions?

I have never seen a blue Wraith at retail and I've only seen one BHD at retail. I think we won't see the blue at retail much at this point because he was only in the first production run supposedly. Of course, there will be some at retail because cases get stuck in the back sometimes and so on. I still see some older stuff out once in a while and either it's a case that sat in the back or a return.
I also purchased my blue Wraith from BBTS along with wave 10 and the 2nd wave of DVD sets. I'm glad I did. I got my first BHD through a trade (for a Firebat) and I bought a 2nd at retail, which is still MOC. I may try to trade it. Wraith is in some revision cases, but it will be the regular version. The first production run cases had either a variant or a regular version.

I haven't seen blue wraith at all yet. Still need him and I would hate to pay top dollar for it.

I have not seen one yet either. I have seen over 40 regular Wraiths at retail though.

I've seen about 6 regulars on Canadian cards in Walmart. However, they are all gone now. Never saw a clear one before.
