Anybody finding these in U.S. retail stores like Toys R Us, Wal-Marts, Targets, etc?....
Nope, they are meant to be LEGO Exclusive, thus only the LEGO stores and S@H have them (some of the larger Exclusives wind up in other retailers but I've never heard of the Battlepacks doing so). So, NO mass market retailers for Battlepacks.
Here in Germany aren't the kingdomssets in the top 25 and they aren't sold out!
In some stores I noticed that the Dragon Knights are prefered by the customers...
For my army I bought in some stores (Vedes) these sets for just 2 euros each:http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=30061-1
The Kingdom's sets have been very popular here in the USA as well, I have not looked to see the ranking on Shop.LEGO.com for the USA but the local LEGO Imagination Center keeps running out of Kingdom sets, the Battlepacks in particular tend to go quickly.
We do *NOT* appear to have set 30061 (or 30062) available here in the USA, it certainly has not appeared on S@H or any retail location I have visited... As that is the type of set that I like to buy a number of (along with Battlepacks and sets like the 7949 Prison Carriage Rescue). 30061& 30062 are both decent designs but this is straying off topic now.
S@H looks like they have both Battlepacks back in stock for the USA.
Build? I merely Acquire atm.
