I saw these for about three days at one of my TRU.

Then BAM! Gone. Who'd a thunk it?

When is Series 2 supposed to be out?

Some people have already found them; they'll probably be as hard to find as Series 1, so if you see them, grab 'em.

We found Series 2 at our TRU on Thursday. Vault did his review and I've put up a decode for series 2 at IAT:

Thanks very much for creating another decoder! All set and ready to throw my money at TRU whenever they get a shipment. :o

Where were these when I was a kid? I would have been ALL over them. The Spartan really rocks. :D

Went to TRU on Friday morning after reading series 2 was out. The sales clerk stated they had some series 2 and let me go through the packs...I had the code sheet. They only let me purchase 5. I think the only other mini figure I left behind was the witch so I wasn't upset. I checked a 2nd TRU on Saturday and found out they had had then but recently sold out. Today my wife wanted to go to the mall for a little school shopping for the kids. My son spotted a new independently owned toy shop that I think just opened. I spotted mini figures at cash register. I hussled back to the car for the code sheet...luck it was in the car. Found the 11 other figures I wasn't able to get at TRU and for a cheaper price...only $2.49. I was glad I didn't find them at TRU...I saved .50 a figure.

I have yet to find any store in the greater Rochester area that is carrying these.

I don't have any :( :cry:

The TRU by me got a box in a few days ago. I picked up the Witch and the Ringmaster. Now, the place where the box used to be is filled with Bionicle stuff and the tag is gone. :shock: That was fast...are they seriously not going to get any more in? I'll bet I see these at the local toy show for $5 again soon. :|

Thanks again for the decoder, though, Noisy!

Noisy - thanks again for this. I don't collect these guys but a guy at work has been interested in picking 'em up. We were at Target yesterday on a lunch break and found a box. I pulled up your decoder on my phone and we sorted them out. He left with 11 unique series 2 characters. You rock!

Anyway, forgive me for not following this more closely but - what retailers carry these? I know TRU and Target. But is Walmart or any other random brick & mortar getting them?

Who's carrying them seems to be very random and regional.

None of the TRU or Target's in my area have had them. I was given a heads up that a smaller one-off toy shop locally got 1 case of them in, but that has been the only sighting I know of so far.

I'd make some rounds of the stores and hobby houses in your area. Who knows where you will find them.

So I got my order from the Lego shop the other day. Out of the 12 I ordered, 10 were unique. That's a lot better than I thought I'd do with a "random pull".

I was able to pick up another 2 I needed from Target, and another 2 from SpyMagician. So now I just need 2 more (Pop Star and Pharaoh).

Now if I can just track down an Indian, astronaut and clown from series 1 I'll be all caught up.

I'm not going to say that Walmart is carrying the line because I really don't know (could even be a regional thing if the are), but I would almost think that they'd be stocked at the registers with the sports and game cards and not in toys *if* they are...

Thanks. Just got back from a TRU lunch run. They guy we asked about them definitely knew what we were talking about. He said they typically get 3 cases at a time and they sell out within an hour. He says: "I only need Dracula."
