Well, it looks like ONE of the two-packs that had shown up in Canada at TRU is now on Amazon. Master Chief vs. Flood Combat Form!

I missed the pre-order on this set, but will have at least one in my collection. Preferably 2 or 3 for a few of those flood tank form figures. Checking daily for it to come back up for order, along with the ODST rookie/pod set:

And there's apparently another Amazon exclusive set with the Brute Stalker and a CQB Spartan that just dropped... (The actual description is wrong and hints at ANOTHER set.)

Thanks for the heads up on that 2 pack! Was just about to order the 3-pack with the same brute mainly just for the brute figure. This works out much better with the different spartan and all.

I'm working from memory here so it's not perfect:

Series 5:
ODST Buck
Grunt Grenadier(w/ two plasma grenades)
Sgt. Johnson
HALO 2 Master Chief w/ dual SMG's
Arbiter Thel 'VDam
Spartan Locke

Series 6:
Spartan Buck
HALO 5 Master Chief
Spartan Anubis (from HALO Infinite)
Atriox
Skirmisher
HALO 3 UNSC Marine

So sad about the wave 5 situation. Feels like a gaping hole in my collection, and there are some key characters are in that wave. I need that Sgt Johnson especially!

I think they must have shown up in Canada somewhere? I see a few auctions on ebay, but they're pretty expensive:

Sgt Johnson being in a “lost” wave 5 of this line and also once being in an “almost
lost” wave 5 of Mega Construx Halo Heroes is almost tragic coincidence.

I’m going guess wave 5 shows up at discount stores like Ross.

Unfortunately, Im betting you're right on that Ash... If that happens, it'll be luck of the draw at Ross, etc... There's an extremely high chance that whoever comes into them will probably scoop them all up to sling on ebay.

I hope you're wrong but I fear that you're right.

Having Johnson and an ODST in a "lost wave" is TERRIBLE for collectors. I'd really like to see someone like BBTS snag that wave but for whatever reason they don't carry HALO stuff. They carry other Jazwares lines but not HALO. Amazon is hit or miss on it and Target is the bane of my existence.

Oddly enough, Target has listings for EVERY figure in that wave but they're perpetually "out of stock".

If wave 5 ends up at Ross, I frequent there semi-regularly and will buy up wave 5 figures for you guys. Wave 6 is the same DCPI at Target, so wave 5 could end up landing there as well. Guess we'll just wait and see what happens.
