    Caution! $36.00 In store!

    Caution! $36.00 In store!

    Totally shocked this morning to find all of wave 2 on the pegs at my walmart: man e faces on the front , then trap jaw , then orko behind Him then YES! SCARE GLOW!!! Finally! (Of course 1 week after I caved and bought on eBay. Oh well. )

    I got all minus orko. I already had trap jaw and man e. from Walmart.com months ago but they were damaged.

    As I’m half awake ringing them up at u-scan, first one is 14.92, then the second one goes in the bag, then as I’m scanning the 3rd I see the total is already $72++. I tried To cancel it out and at that time an Employee walked up and asked if I needed help. Long story long, it took two yellow vests plus another employee and then finally the “toy manager” who I’ve somehow never seen there before, to confirm they were all truly $14.92. I even showed them the attached picture Itook since I was so excited to get these at retail but they didn’t budge on price. They scanned with their phones and their device from the store and I guess it shows $36.00 too. One of them said “it doesnt even say this store has them”.

    All ended well but honestly I was shocked they didn’t take my word and the picture for it but it’s fine. Just be cautious as somehow the website scalper prices are somehow starting to creep in to retail !

    Update to add: it was Trap Jaw that rang up as $36.00, FYIA999E615-9A34-49BA-9483-BEA8487A4E00.jpg

    I've been to 3 different Walmarts in Austin, dozens and dozens of times since January and have only ever seen He-Man, Skeletor, and Battle Cat. EXCEPT I did get Grayskull last Friday - only because I had been checking Brickseek every few hours. They had 1 pop up and I ran down there and offstacked a pallet to get it. So no, no flocked panthor. Brickseek hasn't shown any in the area either.

    I have seen Ram Man and Clamp Champ at Target a couple of times. Also the usual figures. I got my regular Panthor at Target. And the minis. And I picked up the Keldor 2 pack there. So Target is hit or miss. They get stuff in, but you have to be lucky. Walmart is only a miss for me, except Grayskull.

    Yes, it is ridiculous.

Then when 2021 hits and everyone can sell then they just get the newest waves or what ever Mattel sent to the distribution HQ. Bigger orders git filled first so Target come out of the gate with wave 4 and poor BBTS is left waiting for Mattel to fill the orders they made for waves 1-3. Meanwhile Walmart is stuck with a poorly planned mod that is He-Man and Skeletor heavy and employees that don't know how to order from an assortment with three SKUs.

    I received waves 2-4 from BBTS, along with all the deluxe figures released so far and the Land Shark. But I'm sure they didn't get as many orders in as they have placed because the only origins items they have in stock are wave 1 from what I can tell.

    I used to have sympathy for toy companies, trying to run a business when kids are more into video games and other things these days. But then I see how Mattel has distributed their product so carelessly, recklessly I would say because it affects their employees and stockholders in the long run too, and they deserve what they get. There is no excuse for that kind of distribution, sending part of a line to one continent and the other part to another continent. The worst part is that they don't even explain the situation at all. If they had the integrity to be true to their word and then explain what is going on, when we can expect to get this or that wave, I could be patient and just wait. But we hear nothing from them, or they flat out lie (the everything will be available everywhere lie).

    I feel for everyone who hasn't found these figures. Other than wave 1, I got everything at BBTS pretty much. ANd that's only because I am doggedly keeping up with these things and ordering things right when they go up for sale. Seems if you wait at all you miss out. I check BBTS and EE every couple of hours, as well as Brickseek and the Target app. I don't do social media - I do this instead, ha ha.

    Despite the frustration, it's probably a lot better for your social and mental health than Twitter or FB for sure. LOL!

    I doubt they are selling that well or are that rare

    I have seen the same He-Man and Skeletor at my walmart forever, and some of the others as well just sitting there.

    I think they just printed less of the 2nd and 3rd waves and also the covid. This line is a lot less exciting to collect so I am not quite as starved for them. I just want a Scareglow. I can see that being a lower print but honestly, the rest are all mass printed. There is no reason to freak and buy on ebay cause everyone is hording right now...

    Iím with you man. I caved and bought on eBay less than 2 weeks ago. I also noticed his price was easing down on walmart.com. Finally, I see a lot of ďpre ordersĒ for him on various sites, due in May or July. So when I found him on the pegs today I wasnít entirely surprised. I think this wave is coming back around. Hang in there!

    Is there a good guide for this line on the site anywhere that lists everything per wave, and all the deluxe, vehicles, etc.?

    probably close to what you would pay if you bought it for retail plus shipping and fees from someone on here

    Thanks!

    That Amazon price is not too bad. I have 2 pre ordered from BBTS which say they are shipping someday.

    Finally ordered a Ninjor from Smyths, for UK collectors they have him for home delivery. Yay.

    Pics of the new Wind Raider are out on the internets now, looks nice and has a display base.

    Wind Raider looks good, but I'd like to see what a figure looks like inside for scale. The original was a little small in scale

    Ahhh, DUDE, that is frickin' sweet.

    I love this line. It takes everything from the vintage line and moves it a step forward. Not TEN steps forward like Classics, but as far as being a "vintage-inspired" series rather than a complete modern-style reimagining, I feel like it's everything it should be.

    Went in Cool Springs Target today and they had Ram Man and Clamp Champ! Already had Rammy from BBTS but got Champ. They still had one Champ and two Rammys when I left.

    Might be worth mentioning they are also down to just two He-Mans and one Skeletor so those are clearing out and not going to be clogging pegs. They also had a Panthor that wasn't there last time I was in so they do restock.

    This is crazy uncool! Thanks for the heads up! I'm glad you caught it and didn't let them get away with price gouging.

    Thanks man. It’s highly concerning to me as it could continue. I should have pressed more and asked how it could happen but clearly they didn’t know. Not much common sense running through the brains at that moment in time anyway.

    Ouch!!! I just checked Spring Hill target yesterday, sure I would find The Champ. Nada. And now brickseek isn’t even finding him nearby anywhere at all. Strange. Thanks for posting tho!

    So with how Faker is coming out, Mattel finally understand that most fans don't like the new He-Man heads?

    I was REALLY glad to see that Faker has the vintage toy head. Hopefully, any other future He-Man variants will have the vintage toy head. Fingers crossed for Wun-Dar/Savage He-Man.

    Honestly I'd like to see Wun-Darr get his own head, him and Oo-Lar. something that looks kind of like He-Man but not exactly the same.

    I like the standard Origins head. Although it is the head I grew up with, the vintage head makes He-Man look constipated. I like the look sometimes, but I also like having the option to change it out.

    I hate the Origins BA head - depending on the angle he either looks perpetually surprised or confused.
