I saw the X-Men wave 3 come out maybe about two months ago. After pallet shopping and seeing wave 1 and 2 so many times, never thought I'd see them until one night. First night, found a normal Rogue but a Bobby Drake. Went to another Wal-Mart the next morning and found the variant Rogue with no jacket.

But haven't seen them replenish at Wal-Mart or Target since.

The only advice I can give you is if you have a WM that is 24 hrs or close at midnight is to be there at 11:30 p.m. Look at what's on the pallets, if you find the box, have someone open it and there you go.

It's too competitive to toyhunt it seems and with scalpers...the only way you are going to find things is pallet shopping or network and know the people who work the department and make some calls.

I got Rogue and Avalanche a couple of months ago (didn't realise he was rare at the time, so I left a couple on the pegs at different places)

I'm surprised people couldn't find Nightcrawler -- he and Sabretooth are pegwarmers in L.A.

See, weird thing is, the Wal-marts around me haven't carried X-men since the first wave. I can only find them at Targets, and they are jam packed with wave 1 and 2.

Just in case anyone is still looking, these seem to be finally turning up. Saw these all over the place yesterday, at both WMs and KBs. Still haven't seen Avalanche, or the Phoenix rerelease.

I still haven't seen Rogue but I finally saw Avalanche at one of my local Targets.

Saw that KB's had them this time. So, picked up the third different Rogue. But KB tends to be a few dollars more expensive than other retail stores.

Finally found Rogue. She seems put together raher cheaply. Her mid torso joint is very loose and she wobbles if you touch her. Also the paint comes off very easily on the hip joints. As hard as she was to find in my area, I'm really disappointed.

Finishing up my Christmas shopping I scored a Variant Rogue (Yeah, I'm shocked too!) I'm putting her up on the trading block if anyone needs her...
