They're definitely not "limited quantities"; I can get them here in Austin
at the following locations easily (and pick up an entire set at each

        Toys-R-Us (3 locations)
        Software Etc. (the one alongside Barnes & Noble, 3 locations)
        2-3 various comic/anime stores in town (one of which has at
                least 30 or 40 in stock)
        Movie/DVD chain store in the mall (I cant remember the name)

etc. The Wing MSiAs are being as mass-produced as the DBZ stuff; I wouldnt
be surprised to see them show up at Wal-Mart soon if they're not there
already. Maybe they're hard to get in other cities, but here in Austin,
I can go out with $100 and and be back in an hour with a complete set and
change left over easily.
