I'm having serious trouble finding Revan. It's quite puzzling how only (so far to my knowledge) Gamestop stores have been getting this wave. I'm wondering why Walmart, Target, Meijer etc. haven't received it yet.
It's called the "last wave" syndrome. It happens with the last scheduled wave of a calendar year. Retail purchases most of their product in August & September for Christmas season. From January through mid March, they liquidate anything left over and start fresh with wave 1 of the new year, often overstocking that first wave. As a result, the last wave of the year, which would have been purchased in October for December - February stocking, and is often loaded with the best or most anticipated figures, is never seen at the major retailers like Walmart, Target, or Toys R Us. It can sometimes be found at secondary retailers like Ross, TJ Maxx, & Marshalls in March / April. This has happened with Star Wars and Transformers every year for the past decade. So if I want anything from the last wave of the year, I always buy it online as soon as it becomes available. This is exactly what has happened with the Revan 6" wave.

Thanks for the info. I'll start hitting up my local TJ Maxx, Ross, Marshall's stores.
