are they located in the us?
Yea, my info is correct then, that means everyone else will have them available very soon.
Probably around christmas a case or 2 will show up at big box stores around the country (hasbro calls these teaser cases) enough to send people running around like chickens with their heads cut off and get people to fork over large sums of money to scalpers, then it will show in larger quantities in jan/feb. This is exactly what happened last year. They reversed the case wave numbers so like this year wave 21 is now wave 20 and wave 20 is now wave 21. They rushed 2 cases between sept-nov then pushed a third wave in dec near christmas but finding it was hit or miss but then showed up in larger quantities in jan/feb. So we can expect either a lot of wave 18/19 or really old revision cases on the pegs (or nothing). I am talking about big box stores, comic books and online toy stores will depend on their supplier and connections they have.
Keep in mind that all the stores are getting ready for BF then christmas and stuff will start trickling in and resets are also in play. The east coast storms and other bad weather may also have an impact. So just breathe and pace yourself. Wave 21, the nova wave will not be out until late march/april at the earliest. So this wave 20 will have some time to distribute. Then there is toyfair and they like to release stuff around that time as well which may be wave 20 instead of wave 21 but who knows what they announce at toyfair. 2013 movie toys should start dropping in march for the may movies, so their attention might be focused their and with releasing the spiderman unlimited line.
Personally, i think we should also start calling this case wave 20 as its the official name now and call the nova case wave 21.
who are you telling to breathe and pace yourself??? I pre ordered so I dont care if it goes out in retail. My friend works for hasbro and I kno things, so your info is your speculation. That is again atype of negative talk that people do not want to hear, I bring the message of positive information.
