I gave up

and ordered Ret. Alley Viper and Lady Jaye online. No hope of seeing Wave 2.5 around here, when Wave 3 comes out I'm going to order the figs I want online as well and save myself the weeks of searching and headache.

And now watch they start popping up in your store. That's what happened to me.

I found wave 2.5 around back in March after Wal-Mart and Target did their resets. Same with TRU.

Yep, and haven't seen them since.

I think we're in a lull until wave 3 gets released. I thought they were supposed to be rereleasing some of the figures like LJ and Joe Colton, though. I could be wrong. Better to play it safe than sorry.

I only saw them once in the stores and I was stupid enough to pass on the Lady Jaye figure because it didn't capture her movie look. I'm getting that odd feeling that all we will see is empty pegs for a while so online sounds like your best option.

I picked up all of wave 2/2.5 the first day the new line was put out - they were plentiful for about two days. And then the deluge of wave one happened. Haven't seen anything but wave one ever since.

Yeah, once I can order cases of the last 2 waves from bbts, I am ordering 10 of each. This line is about to be kaput at useless typical retail...don't think I have seen anything restocked since they dumped the shelevs full of wave 1 again 5 weeks ago...BBTS finally got my Night Rangers(POC Vamps with the POC snowcat missile racks) in stock so there is a slim glimmer of hope the rest of this stuff will be pre-oderable one day before they all sail away to the mystical land of the cancelled vault...

Yes, but in "wave 4" which likely won't be out till Christmas.

Wave 1 is all that is ever put out here.

Thankfully, it was very easy to order cases of wave 2.5, which included all of the wave 2 figures as well. You had to eat an extra Battle Kata Roadblock and an extra Wave 1 Snake Eyes, but other than that it was a great case. Much better than wringing hands over it and ending up eBaying after the fact.

I always order by the case. If the case breakout is really bad (including a lot of figures from old cases) I may only buy one and look for my extras in stores... but I always order a case. The chances of missing out are just too high otherwise, and I don't have the time to fart around going from store to store forever.

Wave 3 will be perfect for case buying as well... one of each new figure. Army builders may be an issue, but at least everyone can get one.
