    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.

    Interesting to see that MAA is packaged without his left side armor being on. I assume it's in the package behind him?

    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.

    Most likely the figures are cross-referenced by the assortment at store level. Brickseek could tell you that the assortment was in-stock but not which individual figures.

    Ughhhhh. Wal-Mart is awful. I have absolutely no expectations anymore. That's all I have to say.

    Not sure what you're getting at, but Brickseek can and does as there are different SKU numbers for every single figure, Battle Cat, and the Sky Sled:

    Skeletor - 248017810
    Beast Man - 837854580
    Battle Cat - 345920403
    Sky Sled - 873688728
    Teela - 239700632
    Evil-Lyn - 165141707

    They also have individual barcodes listed for each item as well, and have Man-E-Faces listed with an SKU number, though he is not slated for release until Wave 2, and that is the one stating 'Character May Vary'. But for the others, they are there. I've utilized Brickseek for another recent line, and they were pretty spot on as to the stock of individual figures for said line.

    That being said, I've been reading that Popfindr is better than Brickseek, but I've never used that particular website so I can't attest to their reliability/reputation.

    Thank you for posting these, I did a quick search of about 6 Walmarts near me and they have nothing in stock which I expected. Being in a large city, I get to compete in the collector Olympics, but I usually don't win the gold.

    I'll just be patient until something comes up. I'll continue to check daily

    If the figures are shipping in solid cases then, yes, you'll get accurate results as to in-store availability (Battle Cat and the Sky Sled should be correct when checking because they'll ship in solid cases) but I worked at Walmart for 23 years and if the cases are assortments each character will have an individual SKU and UPC but they're all cross-referenced with the case SKU and UPC and it's impossible to know which figures are in-stock without actually going to the store. Over the years I worked there I collected GI Joe, Batman, Star Wars, Pixar Cars and DCUC (along with other odds and ends) and the only time individual figures could be inventoried from the store computer was when they shipped in solid cases. As for walmart.com, they either get the figures as solid cases or break down the cases and manually inventory the figures to have accurate counts for the website (and seeing stories from other collectors, you don't always get what you order).

    I was about to say the eBay scalpers currently offering the figures for five times the retail price are probably starting to shake in their boots, but they'll probably just return then, anyway. Oh well, more for us (at normal prices)!

    My local Walmart shows two speeds in stock. I tried to place a pickup order, but they canceled on me. I’ll hit the store with my kiddo on the first.

    Got myself a Prince Adam and Sky Sled at Walmart! No sign of the rest of the line yet.
