I finally found some collectible minifigs in my town. There was a single open box of series 2 at one of my local Meijer stores. I picked up three packs. Then I went back for more but the box was gone. I did find one lone, forgotten pack hiding amongst a jumble of odds and ends in an end cap basket though, so I got that one.
All told I scored two Egyptian snake guys, a mime, and the disco dude. The color quality (or lack of shine to be specific) doesn't bother me at all. I am quite happy with the figs. I only wish I could find more at retail prices. Bricklink sucks with the double and more prices.
Oh well. Can't have everything.
