    I think I saw the remains of the wave that included these two figures at Toysrus yesterday. Was this Wave released already?

    Most definitely. I've seen both of these figures at Fred Meyers, Targets, and most recently, Toys R Us. In multiple locations, in two different states.

    Yeah? I've seen this wave a couple of times at Targets. Wal-Mart got a healthy dose of wave one with the movie crap. I don't go to TRU unless my kid drags me there.

    I've seen Kup and most of the wave, Quake and Perceptor seem to sell first

    That's Wave 4, and yes, it's been out for a little while now (though difficult to find, at least in my area).

    Seen Wave 4 quite often at Targets and Toys R Us since beginning around June (I got Perceptor early from a convention in late April). Even the shortpacked Quake and Krok can be seen quite frequently where I am, guess the scalpers moved onto other figures.

    The Target in Frisco Texas has half a dozen Perceptors. If you were looking in PA, though, no, not until they clear out the Blurrs and Scourges THAT JUST KEEP COMING.

    The wave, two cases worth, sat at the local Target in South central PA for about two weeks. Today, there's still a Kup and a Topspin.
    Also saw the wave at another local Target (again in PA), as well as one right across the southern border in Maryland.

    Why do I get the feeling that my stalker lives in York? :p 

    Should I just start saying Dauphin, Lancaster, and Cumberland county? I swear to God, any time I look at TRU's store pickup, it's always York or Wyomissing (basically Reading). Because, let me tell you, if the Harrisburg or Camp Hill TRUs ever had anything in stock, they wouldn't have closed. The three Targets, four WalMarts, and two KMarts that immediately come to mind are holes full of soap bottles with so much dust on top that you can see two layers of "dust me" written on them. And, sometimes, beneath those is yet another in sanskrit or hieroglyphics...

    I've seen some of wave 4 in Walmart, TRU and Walgreens. Only saw Kup and Perceptor once at Walmart but I passed on them. Still haven't seen Top Spin which I may not resist if I get it in my hands.

    What's it like to have something in your area besides wave 1.5?

    My Walmart stocked wave 4 one time with 2 cases. In my rural podunk town they all sold out the same day they were stocked. I bought 1 topspin right after they were stocked, a friend of mine in this board bought a set about 15 minutes later, then my other friend went by later that evening and they were all gone. They restocked a month later with wave 1 and movie crap.

    I've seen the full Wave once. Other than that, I've seen pieces of it here and there a couple times, at Target and TRU.

    I got mine from a Target, so they should be there.
