According to BBTS Wave 4 Vehicles, a case consist of the Firebat, Sharc, Water Mocassin & Sky Hawk. Now, seeing that the shelves at Target and TRU are flooded with Sharcs and Firebats, is it possible that these have been released and someone has beat us to them every single time. Sightings were always at Wal-Marts early in the year. Granted the Sharcs and Firebats are Wave 2 assortments with the V.A.M.P. and R.A.M. in the Wave 2 cases. I don't know, I don't see everybody buying up V.A.M.P.s and R.A.M.s that flooded the shelves last summer instead of the Sharcs or (especially) the Firebats. The Sky HAwk is in the Wave 5 assortments but for those of you that have yet to see a Mocassin are you $#!+ out of luck?
How many of you still don't have or seen the Mocassin and Sky Hawk?
Do you think Hasbro would re-release these during the Movieline or after the movie stuff dies down?

I have never seen a Sting Raider in a store, ever. I only saw the Ghost Hawk once and I bought that one. I have seen hundreds of the other ones like the VAMP and HISS. I Lucked out this morning and bought a Sting Raider from the online Hasbro Toy Store. I also got a Destro/Shockblast Resolute comic pack there as well, but two hours after I placed my order I got an email from the Hasbro Toy Store saying they could not complete my order. All that stuff sold out in a few hours. Some stuff is really hard to find.

Late last year, I only saw the Ghosthawk once at a Walmart. I bought it, and I never saw it in any store again. I saw a Water Mocassin about the same time and passed it up due to lack of money. Never saw it again.
I do see tons of Firebats and SHARCs everywhere. I heard from this one guy I met in a Toys R Us who said 1 worker there is a collector and opens up the boxes of Joes and Star Wars stuff and picks out what he wants. He also sells them to his collector friends.
Now I never pass on something thinking I'll pick it up next week when I have more money. I'll just bite the bullet and spend less the next week to make up for it. I was able to pick up a Destro/Shockblast and a Tunnel Rat/Storm Shadow comic pack at a Target about a month ago. I have yet to see any more at any store I frequent.
Part of my problem is I have odd tastes it seems because I bought certain figures right away thinking it was going to be a hot item that I won't find later on. As it turns out the figure is a peg warmer and I should have picked up some other ones first that I can't find anymore.

I have yet to see either vehicle. We didn't the Sharc or Firebat here until late December - then they were everywhere. Hopefully I'll still get lucky... but I doubt it...

I've never seen one, but I'm lucky enough that my best friend collects too. He was gracious enough to give me the first Skyhawk he found. Karma rewarded him with another a couple weeks back. He saw the Moccassin and asked if I wanted it. Regretably, I passed on it. Neither of us have seen it again.
