    Just bought Perceptor at Cicero Target. Was the only one, but he is in the land of Lincoln now.

    Wave 1 deluxes are starting to pop up everywhere in target, but it looks like they’re doing a case at a time. Finally got a dragstrip. Left the Kickback at the Rosemont Target.

    At this point I'd probably post up on the FS thread. Quake has older figures so you might get lucky.

    could also try geek toy hut out in arlington, love those guys.

    I dunno about "cheap" though, like jbb said you are talking about a toy from 2 lines back, you will be paying some kind of premium/markup.

    You can check Closet Collectibles in Crete and Tinley Park, they had 1 each about 2 weeks ago.

    Quake doesn’t. At least not right now.

    you can try Wax Max in Roselle, Ka Pow on Belmont, Toy De Jour also

    but good luck finding one cheap now. Crazy how much they go for since they were at every Aldi at one time

    You're fine not owning it: they painted the roof to "match" the yellow plastic... and clearly, Hasbro took a day off QC for this release.

    Besides, Hasbro might re-release it with painted windows (like Cliffy). Then they could cast the whole thing in yellow and fix the mess.
