    Too bad the ODST doesn’t come with a suppressed SMG. Pretty good wave. Interesting they’re making Locke. Maybe they’ll keep going with his team. Blue Team also needs some more members to face off against them.Image
    I want everyone but MC, as per usual. I wish there was some online toy store that reliably sold these at retail price, because finding everything in stores has been a nail-biting experience. It's not like G.I. Joe Classified, where I now expect to get nothing and am pleasantly surprised when I get anything from anywhere, I have been lucky enough to find everything I've wanted from World of Halo thus far, which makes my expectations for finding these figures way too high.

    Damn... I might as well just sign over my paycheck to Jazwares...

    Your paycheck is only $20? :D

    Army-building is a sickness from my G.I. Joe collecting days. I'm going to need a few ODST's. The Grunts? Oh, that's going to hurt my wallet a bit.

    I just wish someone like BBTS would offer preorders. I finally bought the last few Sentinel Drones that were clogging my local Target for months just to force a restock. Sadly, it'll likely be MORE of wave 3... again.

    Oh, I got you. Just joking around. Trust me, you're not alone with the army-building sickness. Throughout my years of collecting, I've been known to amass army builders. At 1:18, it wasn't too hard to do. Mega Construx is even easier (don't ask how many modern-articulation Grunts or Marines I have, cause I'm way past fingers and toes). 1/12 army building is more difficult. I try to keep it to 3-4 each, but I went way over that for Classified Cobra Infantry, Vipers, and BATs.

    I know people love ODSTs and want to army build them. I think a fireteam of 4-5 is my limit on them. I'd actually like to see the maskless Marine, from the Amazon 3pk, offered in the Infinite color scheme. I'd probably get a few of them.

    This wave looks great. I'm definitely in for at least Chief, Johnson, and the Arbiter. That said, I still haven't seen the wave with Fred in any store around my area, so... I'm not exactly optimistic about getting any more figures from this line.

    A few people have mentioned not seeing Wave 4 at all, so next time I see anything from that wave I'll buy it and offer it up here. Gotta spread the love around if in store is the only real chance to get these.

    I've bought a few of the Spartan Collection figures and enjoyed them, and I had been curious about the 1:18 figures for a long time (but didn't want to get into another line). Also, most of the time I just see pegs and pegs full of Master Chief, so I wasn't sure about being able to get the others I wanted.

    I gave in this weekend when I saw the Mantis mech on sale at Target for $27.99. I'm a sucker for robots and mechs, and it's a hell of a figure/vehicle for that price, with a pilot included. Then I looked up the pricing on a Warthog, and saw the Gamestop exclusive with MC and the Arbiter. My local GameStop had one on the shelf, and that also feels like a solid value for $39.99 in the current toy market. I'll definitely be getting more Covenant figures as I can find them, so I guess I'm sucked in, just like I didn't want.

    My local Target had like 10x of that set over with the Construx Halo stuff, so check that aisle as well if you're searching B&M.

    The last time my Target sold through wave 3 they restocked with wave 2. I ended up buying the last of Sentinel Drones just to force a restock which hasn't happened in months.

    One of my local Targets has been showing 3x of these in stock for the past two weeks. I went into the store with the DCPI and had an employee look them up. His POS access showed "Zero" so I'm dubious of the website results.

    I've heard of them dropping in AZ, CA, and TX but no where else. It seems to be the same stores that are getting the Jorge/Kelly wave of the Spartan Collection.

    Some of series 5 are posted on Target.com now. Not available for order/shipping, but at least you've got a DCPI to use when you're in a store.

    It looks like Target took the pages down for now. Have I mentioned that I loathe Target these days?

    FYI - World of Halo Gungoose and Shade turret are 75% off clearance at Target at the moment. Your mileage may vary, but I've had a few friends around the country mention the same thing. They were not marked at my Target, but came up when I scanned them. This knocks the price down to $5.99 by me.
