The wave was sighted at an Ontario Walmart and contains Destro, Scarlett & Roadblock.

Ah a classic from WM (or Hasbro?). The shipping lading bills showed massive amounts of stock 3 months ago... and now W2 appears. No W1. LOL

Agree we haven't seen a single figure here from wave 1 and even online just shows the same Awe Striker that no one can order. I was only thinking about getting the HISS tank anyways but man they are bad at distribution.

Only one of the local Walmarts here seems to get the exclusives (Real Ghostbusters, Star Wars, etc). And I have not found Retro GI Joe at either store.

Pickering Walmart has a couple of Destro and Roadblock left after I got mine. They were located at the end of an aisle like no one knew where to put them so they put they put them there.

Both our Walmarts get most waves but very limited amounts. Usually only see a few leftovers from each wave. Guess that's what happens when stores get in only a 1 or 2 boxes of each wave.

I'm not too worried about Retro wave 1 figures but I'd love to get a couple Scarletts and the HISS. Walmart and Hasbro definitely are missing out though as most likely if I saw them in store I'd be tempted to grab them all.

Thanks for the heads up Toolytay.
Ordered a Roadblock and Scarlett that I didn't have a hope in hell of actually going to stores to find.

Cheers!
