SELLING LOS AMOS BOXED FIGURES...
I think the timing of this Big Lots revelation is pretty darn inconvenient.
The $27 day of price has been a VERY hard pill to swallow all year.
The decision to re-sub is also upon many of us right now.
$25 for subscribers or MAYBE 60% OFF that price at a discount store like Big Lots or Ollie's in about a year.
Granted, Big Lots buys overstock for waaaaay under normal costs, but what lesson are we supposed to gain about the actual price vs value of these toys?
I'd venture to guess that ToyGuru and the Suits at Matty are cursing the name Big Lots right about now...
Grabbed a Grizzlor, Mossman, King Grayskull, and Man-E-Faces in Atlanta (Duluth) yesterday...the store had:
and an additional Mossman
...no Orko, no Mo-Larr, or anything else that I could find.
Another store in Atlanta had some of the figures on the shelf in white mailers and employee said they were all showing up that way but that they were discarding the mailers when putting them on the shelf so be aware when looking.
Keeping Grizzlor and hoping to find Leech, Catra and maybe TP He-Man.
Just stopped by the Gresham Oregon store. Crazy to see these figures in a store! Picked up one molar only. Lots of orko and negatory and three molars left if anyone else is close by.

I have checked two near me in Southern illinois (Alton and Granite City), and neither had them. So either they sold out or never got them.
It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!
Also...get her into the line!

This isn't a judgement on Matty or TG or anything-- I don't feel cheated. I think it's awesome that people are getting these. But I get what Buzz is saying. I can see it affecting people's decision to sub.
I checked the wood dale il location and they did not have them. I am checking the oakbrook one after work.

Biglots Douglasville, GA had
Count Marzo x2
Faceless One x2
King Grayskull x2
Moss Man x1
Snout Spout x2
I bought one of each for my friends child. I also bought the remaining for myself to open for myself due to mine still being in the package.
I've checked Big Lots all over Phoenix and have only spotted Mo-Larrs and Ghostbuster 2 packs. I'm checking a couple today but am guessing any new stuff won't come until wednesday or thursday.
I kinda agree with some posters that motuc for 10 bucks at Big Lots seems to de-value them a bit. I know I've overspent on this line for years but I've always justified it with "Well where else am I gonna get a Catra or Grizzlor. I guess I'll spend the money..." Seeing them at a bargain bin price is a little sad. I understand why, but I do get the sense that I overpayed. (totally my choice btw, not blaming anyone)
Hurry everyone to subscribe next year and pay $37 for a single figure shipped!
Off the back of some other comments I've seen, I also feel some of these photos make it looks like some of this stock was returned stock.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
Megator for $10!!! That is crazy...
My post count just got bigger.
Went by the Gaithersburg, MD store on my way home today and all was gone and new little Spider-Man toys were there now. Still had the GB stuff though.
Checked out the Big Lots in Liverpool, NY(near Syracuse) and nothing on the shelves there.

From needing 13 figures to HAVING 13 figures sucks.
Anyone got anything for sale cheap?

I wish there was a way to find out, like Best Buy has....you plug in what you want and search by store...I hate calling Big Lots because they act like you just ruined their day to have to answer the phone.
Baltimore area stores seem to be picked clean. I saw fully stocked shelves in three stores Friday morning. I've been to seven stores total since Saturday and I'm only seeing Count Marzo, Chief Carnivus, and Icarius left at a couple locations. I wonder if they will restock? None of the stores in my area had Snout Spout, Vikor, or King Grayskull.
