May as well get the ball rolling on this series. Here's the checklist:

Release date in the US: ???

I'll be looking for the mobster and detective.

Vault expects these to be soon. He's been hitting TRU religiously and warning me that I'll need to make his "dot" checklist soon. :lol:

I'm excited for this wave. Looking forward to snagging a Mobster, Dinosaur Guy, Cavegirl, & the Beefeater! And I kinda want a Lego Monkey...

There is so much "cool" in this wave. Hands down, the Dwarf Clown has winner written all over it. As does '80's Aerobics girl, Zoo Keeper with Monkey, Gangster, Beefeater, ... Ah, hell they all do.

Wonder if they are going to change up the Dot system to something new or are they happy with how subtle it is currently?

Thanks for the decoder.

Unfortunately, my local TRU has already sold out. Eagerly awaiting more, but not sure how long before they get them.

Also, they have the Playmobil mystery figure packs as well and they are similarly tempting ... :?

first found these at a wal mart. They had a full case, and just by feeling the packages I found a dwarf and a gladiator! They are awesome. Yesterday I went to a somewhat local TRU/BRU to get a high chair for my 6 month baby boy, and they had 2 cases both pretty much empty but I found the dinosaur guy, and I was pretty happy about that. The only other one I really want is the gangster, the others are just ok to me. Saw the playmobil mystery figs too. Didnt impress me , they had a bunch of girly figures

So, I am now down to missing 3 figures for the set.

I need the:
Boxer
Lizardman
Detective

I have extras of:
Fitness Instructor
Cavegirl (x2)
Snowboard Dude
Zoo Keeper

and TRU just raised the price to $3.49 which makes me very uneasy constantly going in and finding them behind the counter and getting my "daily allotment" from a worker instead of being able to feel the packs or read the dot codes first. I've been lucky so far, but at this point I doubt I will find the 3 I need without accumulating a massive army of the ones I already have.

Check WM. I found a shelf hanger of Wave 5 at the Batavia WM on Monday, $2.99 each.

Yeah, I've been looking at Walmarts but most don't have them out yet (at least Chili, Hudson Ave, and Greece don't).

Hoping Target will put them out next week when they start the Halloween seasonal resets...

Hey I just scored a ton of these pretty cheap $2 a piece! I said screw it and bought a whole case and started opening them with my little cousins they loved it ! I got a couple whole sets for me and them lots of Gladiators for them as well ! If anybody wants me left overs at cost let me know I got maybe like 30 maybe 40 left. I just cant open the rest may take them back to WM. Man these are addictive anybody want to trade some of my wave 5 for their earlier ones ?? ?
