Forgive me if this discussion has already been started, but where is Wave 12? Is this going to be like Wave 10 and pop up at some obscure department store like W10 at Kohl's? I don't really want to order a case online - but what are your thoughts, Tankers? Will these start showing up at JC Penny's or something? Should I bite the bullet and order online or do you all think that these will be at retail?

considering wave 10 has been found everywhere, I don't see an analogy between it and wave 12. wave 12 simply got caught in the shuffle. probably a lot of wave 10 and 11 was shipped out, but there weren't many orders for product when wave 12 was ready so it went to HTS and other e-tailers, then as more orders from major retailers came in it was time for wave 13.
but older waves hit retailers out of order after newer waves are released all the time, so I don't think there is anything to worry about.

I don't understand not wanting to buy online from an established store. You want the figures, they have them, even with shipping. The cost isn't any worse than going to a store daily and finding nothing.

Wave 12 has been a my house for over a month, Thanks to BBTS. I'm pretty sure retailers will get Wave 12, might even be after stores perform inventory next month. As for Wave 10, I've been seeing them more frequent at Toys R Us. Stores get the first thing grabbed and shipped from distribution centers, as much as I hate to say it but be patient they'll show up.

Good question. I've seen waves 10, 11, and 13 at retail lately, but no wave 12.

at my local stores the toys r us has a shizen load of the wave 10 figs which i just cleaned them out of all their paravipers wraiths and bats, soo sick of the tiger duke's mutt's and croc masters. At my targets they are way overstocked on the UBP and wave 12 and 11 tons of thoes still. have yet to see any of wave 13 hit any of my stores around here

Same goes for me...no wave 12 anywhere. I got lucky and scored the entire one and only case of wave 13 at our local walmart as they were restocking the shelves. Odd...bunch of peg warmers and wave 13 magically pops up prior to wave 12. I'm gonna order Wave 12 off SmallJoes.com where the case is $50. Close enough for me....now if I could only find the last DVD battle pack!
