    Hoorah! They're turning up everywhere in OZ!

    ...sans Mudflap and Skids.

    Any ideas why?

    (If a thread like this already exists, feel free to lock it, I did do a search and there hadn't been one for the last couple of weeks at least)

    No, I don't think it's scalpers.

    The shelves are stocked to the brim, just without any Ice Cream trucks...

    That's classic scalping, the ice cream truck is the real money maker right now (Jolt less so, but second place at least.) That's how they work most often, employees (or freinds thereof) pick the valuable figures out of a case before it even gets stocked onto the sale floor. Be glad you have ANY wave 4, I'm in East TN. and I have seen a grand total of 2 jolts and 2 dead ends over the past 3 months >_>. At least I got a Jolt (still trying to find Blazemaster and twins.)

    I know that my WM gets scalped all the time. Seen one guy walk out with 7 Jetfires once, and then again at another Target picking up HA BB when they first came out.

    On the note of Wave 4, the Twins are by far the rarest of the wave. Only seen 2 and I bought on of those.
