That would be like the Alpha Wave 3 stuff up here.  Since it is a clearance item, they'd ship them all out to the stores at one time and that would be all there is.

These cost 15.99 retail at Ross, and as long as scalpers don't hoard them, they're apparently as easy to get as the Alpha wave was up here (at most locations). I've seen some stupid scalper-ish prices being asked for them on ebay and such, which is to be expected.

Good thing we have some Americans on here to help those of us out that need it. ;)

I've got hooked up with the Target Ram and Trouble Bubble from a guy on a comics board no less.  Looking for the rest.

The wave three was a hard find in this area.  I drove over 270 miles to 4 towns and didn't even find a whole set.  I was in a store when the truck arrived and I saw the first and last toy lot come out and that day they only got in a ram and two gliders.  So it seems that the Ross stores in California gets a lot more than the rest of the US (and there's the whole middle section of the country that doesn't have a Ross).
