    I can't wait to see these in stores. Although, my Walmarts were like a month behind on putting out the WWE figures, so idk how long it'll be before I can get them.

    Walmart seems to have such spotty distribution...

    Some stores get tons of certain items, while others get very little - if any at all.

    Oh, that's a good bet. Notice all the Skeletors sitting on eBay right now, not selling at $40. Maybe a reseller just gave up and returned them.

    I suppose a better picture, clearly showing the condition of the cards could help clear that up. If the cards were in good shape, I would be inclined to think they weren't from an online order. Most MOTU Origins figures bought online through Walmart arrive looking like they were delivered by Ace Ventura.

    That said, I don't care if the cards were warped to crap. If the figure looked good I'd buy it.

    You're better off waiting for them to be available in the store if you're looking to keep them on the card. I'm seeing a lot of people ordering them from WM if they're lucky, and getting cards that are wrecked. If you want a few to open, the cards probably don't mean a thing. I've been waiting for them to be available online. WM is THE WORST place for these. WM sells so many other products, toys are at the very bottom of their priorities. They toss them in a box and ship them. When ever I've gotten any product from Super 7, its been packaged with tissue paper, packed nicely, in an extra shipping box...

    Don't think you're missing out. You'll eventually get the figures. If you got them now, you'd play a little with them, then put them somewhere for a few months, and all of a sudden, they'll be in the stores.

    Saw a couple posts of people finding these in store on Instagram, looks like these are starting to hit.

    I think this assortment SKU stock checker should work on Brickseek. I plugged in a zip code in Arizona where these were reported to be found and a lot of Walmarts list them as in stock. They are likely in the back awaiting the toy aisle reset though. I'm not sure how many Walmarts will stock them until they have a designated shelf tag.

    Picked up He-man and Skeletor this morning at a Walmart in Phoenix area! There were 2 skeletors and 1 he-man on their own peg, but there were also 1 of each more tucked behind some wwe wrestler figures on another peg. Only complaint was most of the cardboard on these were bowed or the corners were bent. Doesn't bother me too much as I'm opening these but may be an issue for people wanting to keep them mib.

    For the first time since Coronavirus shut everything down, I ventured to a Wal-Mart in Austin, TX this morning before our normal grocery store run. First off, I was shocked at how safe it felt... lots of signage about mask policies, only one entrance to let folks in, a pair of masked greeters, and you never take much notice of how wide their aisles are at Wal-Mart until a global pandemic takes hold and you're pretty much the only few in a retail store at 8am. Very much Night of the Comet vibes. Anyways, no new MOTU or anything that hinted at that they will be resetting the aisles any time soon. We found one random Mega Blocks Skeletor behind some random toy. I finally saw the Masters of the WWE figures in store for the first time... picked up Finn Balor and Roman Reigns (had to buy something, since we put our lives at risk... LOL!), left Faker John Cena behind (it was slim pickings). They had about 5 of the Grayskull Ring (not the set with the figures). All in all, it was a fine enough experience for someone who's been basically shut in since March that I suppose I will probably make a weekly effort to check this place out for MOTU when we head out for groceries. Up until today, I was pretty much of the mind that if I can't find them on the website, then I'm not going into a store to hunt for them.

    Is that SKU for just Man-E-Faces or MOTU Origins itself? I gotta find out if they're at the Wal-Mart on the Strip!

    Just type in 'Masters of the Universe Origins'in the SKU finder, and different, individual results pop up. Click whichever figure you want, enter the Zip Code, and voila.

    Well, I guess I figured I hadn't had enough disappointment this week, so tonight I went to Target to see if they had any NECA TMNT, and Wal-Mart to see if they had any MOTUO. Unsurprisingly, I struck out at both places.

    None in my area as well. I did at least get the He-Man shirt and Funko Pop set.

    I remember one day in 2002 going to Target, completely unaware that any reboot MOTU line was coming out, and seeing an aisle just filled with the 200x stuff. Just a wall of red.

    Sadly, I have no expectations that in 2020, here in a few days, I'm going to have that same experience going into Wal-Mart.

    I joined the Origins Facebook group some have mentioned here, and it just increases my disappointment, seeing everyone post their findings, all while knowing there is zip in the Central Indiana area.

    My Walmart looks like they are barely stocking any action figures. Empty space galore. And when not empty, barely anything in a space.

    Same here. Apparently, retail space is free these days. You can bring in some of your own stuff to sell and just put it on the shelves. Plenty of space for all.

    The line doesn't even officially come out until the first.

    I mean, it won't be an entire aisle, but they're dedicating six pegs and shelf space to it, and that's fairly rare for a budget boys line.

    Iím starting to think patience is the best bet. The single figures have not hit the Midwest at all unless I missed a post so Iím guessing it will be lucky if I find them even on August 1 if not a week or two past that.

    Not only to find them but to find the card unpunched.

    Advice from my personal (successful) weekend experience.

    Using Brickseek has been very reliable for me. There is a key to it though.

    Using it for the He-Man and Skeletor SKU works perfectly. Using it for the other characters only works when you use the assortment SKU (CLICK HERE).

    He-Man is in a case of just He-Man. Same with Skeletor. The others are mixed one per case (4 total) which is why you need to use the assortment SKU on them.

    I went to eight Walmart stores yesterday. All showed them in stock. Four of them had the figures on the shelves. The other stores were holding them back for the reset (or may have not gotten a chance to put them out yet), but it was confirmed that they had them.

    I actually did a store search and Battle cat popped up in stock near me. When I got to the store, the isles looked like they hadn't been stocked for months. There was practically nothing on the pegs or shelves. No battle cat or anything. This was at a Walmart in Skokie Illinois.
