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.
S@H looks like they have both Battlepacks back in stock for the USA.

Figs in question are the one in the top middle (legs are plain and torso looks plain underneath the armor though hard to tell) and the fig on the right (now has a dragon torso instead of a chainmail torso. Check images against BrickLink http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?O=852922-1 to see for yourself as they're showing the original. Did they make a change for the 2nd run of figs due to their popularity?
It should also be noted though that the Red/White Knights Battle Pack has not changed, from what I can tell.
SevFalcon wrote:JCool, I received my DK set the other day, and it's identical to the image on BrickLink. I had purchased mine from lego.com. I was hoping to get another one later down the road, but I hope it's still the same for the figs.
Did you get yours at a store? Were there other sets that you could've compared yours to?

Are they just of the normal quality or cheap plastic?
Just wanted to ask to make sure before I buy them.

I've received 4 packs of the Dragon Knights, but have only opened one. upon inspection, The quality of the minifigs is better than the cheapo collectible minifigs. I've also opened one set of the Lion Knights. Other than having none of the cool new great helms, the figs we better quality than the collectible minifigs as well. I like the printing on both sides of the bodies with the new Kingdom's line as well. I hit the BOGO sale at TRU a few weeks back and picked up 8 of the Prison Carriage Rescue. I've also got the King's Castle as well. Those minifigs are all better quality that the Collectible cheapos. I think the printed legs on some of the knights spoil it for the others...
