I recall TRU ended putting out MASSIVE numbers of Sigma Six wave 4 (with STone and Zartan) in the later half of 2007, more than a YEAR after the assortment was released and well after the rebranding and effective cancellation of the size class.

Hasbro just way underproduced this set.
I don't know why the last case assorment had #2 in it at all.
Lets look at the statistics
Wave 1 Wave 2 Wave 3
#1 x2 #1 x1 #2 x1
#2 x2 #2 x1 #3 x1
- - - - #3 x1 #4 x1
- - - - #4 x1 #5 x1
So the toal shipments combined to equal
If we put those numbers into thousands you have the estimate number of each set produced in relation to each other.
#1 - 30,000
#2 - 40,000
#3 - 20,000
#4 - 20,000
#5 - 10,000
Its simple supply and demand.
Hasbro screwed up somewhere and over produced the first two sets while underproducing the
last three sets.
I assume Hasbro may have had a final forth wave case assortment with only the last three sets but based on sales orders from retail it was never produced.
I don't see more of these showing up outside of a few last online shipments.

It doesn't exist. If someone posts pics they are photoshopped. It's a myth.
All kidding aside, I've never seen the thing in person.

I saw two in a Marshall's about a month ago but only had the loot to but one. I figure the sets are probably even harder to come by, now, but I can confirm that they were available...
