    I didn't see any Molarrs though, which seems to be a common one on this thread.

    Ok, I just got the Orko, Megator and MoLarr set at Big Lots in Fairfax.

    Just call the stores! I called one store and was very cordial and explained what I was looking for, told them there was no rush and that I knew they had actual work to do. The Assistant Manager ended up doing a store search within her district and told me who was showing quantities. At the time of my call, I only had the skus for the figures I found in Sterling (None of the larger items), she listed these stores as either showing stock or stock in transit:

    (All of these are in the Washington, DC surrounding areas)
    Greenbelt, MD
    Woodbridge, VA
    Alexandria, VA
    Front Royal, VA
    Winchester, VA
    Sterling, VA
    Fairfax, VA

    From what I can gather, there are at least two cases. One contains Megator x2, Orko x2 and MoLarr x2. The other contains quantities unknown of the regular figs. Fairfax only had the larger items and Sterling only had the regular figs. They're not supposed to hold items, but if you are polite they will hold them long enough for you to travel to the store. If you just call the store and ask for the items, they may not know what you are talking about. They also may not be on the floor. The assistant manager I spoke with said, "You have know idea how much product we receive and we don't always get it out on to the floor right away."

    Ask them to check inventory in the system for you or try and locate more in their district. If they don't have it, it will come up as "NA" in their system.

    I didn't have the skus for Orko, Megator, or MoLarr - but after locating the items and a little help from Count Marzo here are the remaining skus from my orginal list:

    MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE ORKO - 810141221 (This is Orko, but the computer ID only says Masters of the Universe)
    MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE MEGAT - 810141220 (MEGATOR obviously)
    MASTERS MO LARR - 810141219
    MOTU CARNIVUS - 810141151
    MOTU FACELESS ONE - 810141139

    Hope this helps. Be patient and polite and I'm sure it will go a long way. If there are none in your area/district I would suggest trying to ask members in the marketplace to help out.

    GOOD LUCK!

    For anyone is the Kansas City area, I went to BL tonight and had them look up 2 of the skus Futuretro provided. The figures were in the computer, but they showed none in stock and none on order at any local stores.

    I saw maybe 15-20 stores on his list, and I know I saw Topeka listed, but I don't know how far into Missouri the list would have covered, so take that into consideration.

    Considering the stores on the coasts already have theirs out, and our stores don't even show any on order, I'm thinking we Midwesterners might be out of luck on this one.

    Maryland, you've screwed us again!!!

    Thanks for the heads up. I live near the Kansas City area. I've been checking the Shawnee and Olathe locations any time I happen to pass buy ans I had extra time.

    Are you somewhere we haven't heard from yet? (And don't say my Mom's house-- I know she don't got no Megators!)

    Big Lots in Lexington Park, Maryland. They have a good amount of single figs and only one Skeletor & Mo-Larr set.

    I just want a Keldor, Zodac, and Carnivus (the only three figures I'm missing). Has anyone seen those three at any of their Big Lots?

    No single figures, though... I could really use a few of those, too at that price!

    I didn't know Snout Spout and King Grayskull were in the lot as well. Can anyone post/add the skus for these two?

    I highly recommend calling the store and asking about them. Because in doing that the store I went to actually had em still in the back not on display yet.

    I wonder if someone got to them first though because no Orko, no molar, no megator, no king gray skull. I would have really wanted those.

    They did not have ghostbusters either.

    Which again makes me think either that they were in another shipment because the guy said he thought they put them out before but the lady had not gotten around to doing the end cap yet. So most won't even be old enough to remember MOTU so they probably won't know what you are talking about but if they are in back or just coming in on a different day (like my store was a thursday that they get theirs)

    They don't seem to be in any rush to put stuff out so don't lose faith =).

    Oh and for those wondering,

    I got Man-e-faces, 2 moss man, sy klone, grizzlor, leech, clawful.

    Left carnivorous, faceless one, adora, catra, count matzo, Icarus and duplicates of some of the above, Western New York area,

    Edit:
    I just called more and they seem to be getting trucks today and had nothing put out previously. So YMMV but call people for sure.
