Dethklok SDCC exclusive box sets still available; Wave 1 coming soon?

Shocker Toys debuted their Metalocalypse Dethklok action figures this summer at the San Diego Comic Con. At the Con, they were selling an exclusive debut box set of all 5 of the Dethklok members, with a limited run of 500 sets. Well, supposedly they have expanded the initial run by a bit and you can order the box set from their website if you missed it at SDCC. The set sells for $80, which includes shipping.
They are also working on Wave 1 of the Dethklok series for retail, but release news is sketchy at the moment. As with many small niche toy lines, it is often difficult to get retailers to pre-order them in enough quantity to make the line financially feasible. If and when Wave 1 does arrive, expect it to be the same 5 figures from the box set, but sold individually. Without some good sales though, there likely will never be a Wave 2.
Update: See the comments section for new details on Wave 1 and 2.

actually the figures will not be the same as the box set! They will have corpse paint and their instruments and different poses. As far as Wave2 there will be one even if only direct.
