    Found them here in Albuquerque, NM, too!!! This was cool for me because these were totally bumming me out! I had placed an order for them at HasbroToyShop on Christmas Day. Then I got an e-mail 3 days ago saying that Dragstrip and Overkill were "Sold Out"!!! Started looking at BigBadToyStore and eBay and saw that they were going for $25-$35 each!!! Was going to wait till I sold a few things to buy them, then this hits!!!! Rushed over to the closest Marshall's and BINGO*!!! Sooo happy!!!!

    Yup, a friend of mine found 2 each of Overkill and Dragstrip at the one close to his place. He lives on FM 1960 near 45, but yes they are down here. I need to go tomorrow to see if I can find Ops and Megs...

    I get it that these were just found by the community now, but does anyone know about how long they've been shelfwarming at Marshalls? I checked both of my area Marshalls (Richmond, VA) yesterday, and nothing. I know I'll probably get the runaround if I ask about them, so I was just wondering if I should wait and see if they come in this week.

    Prime and Megs were terrible. The only one worth it would be Overkill...I might have to check around here for him.

    my marshals had zip nada and zilch.

    Which is bad because I wanted overkill and dragstrip.

    If anyone can pick those up and mail them to VA for like 22 bucks total let me know :p

    Got the only one there on shelf at the one store came to my mind , a Drag Strip. btw, I rarely 'd shop at Marshall... mostly on the days with special sales after holidays... Good job to whom reported the sighting...

    btw, I got all of these in original molds in Classic series, in my opinion, the SE box set itself is nice.. but only Drag Stip is worth to re-buy.. I hate that Prime and Meg, Overkill is at the fence.

    I think it was such a hugh surprise for Marshall to sell these bunch of SE ... and to poor kids (us) that we 'd have to hunt these down at store like Marshall... lucky for those little kids who have to wander around the little toys section while their mommies and aunties still hunting for their dresses and bargains... But poor things these nice boxes go nowhere but straight to the garage bins... poor things...

    doesnt these being released at retail, no matter how limited, decrease the novalty of these figures?

    Thanks for confirming that, I'd seen commerical where TJ and Marshalls were shown together, so I had a good feeling they were the same..:)
