The Walmart by me had an entire box of Series 3 and never put it out. It went straight to the clearance rack. Needless to say, I picked up all of them.

Random question to revive this topic for, but I'm thinking of wanting to pop the 'Space Villain's' robot arm out and replace it with a regular Lego arm... is this likely to cause stress or damage to the torso? I haven't popped arms out since I was a kid for fear of doing any damage to my favourite toys.

It's fine. I've done it with mine. Just don't jerk it too far.

I've done a lot of Mafia games over the years. Somehow, I haven't improved at all.

Scott. Great Scott, if you will.

Arms, legs and hands aren't supposed to be removed because they stress the torso or legs they are attached to.  Removing arms harms the torso, and should only be done if you're willing to risk harming the figure.

Is this the same with the type of plastic the Collectible Minifigs are made of, though?

CMFs and regular minifigs are both made of ABS, so I don't think it would make a difference.

I am looking for opinions on the closest hair piece to the actual Elf Hairpiece, Option A or Option B. What do you think?

I'd say Option A. It's more rounded.

The Walmart in Minocqua, WI has 8 boxes of Series 3. I picked up a few packs on my last visit there.
