    If you click the links to the webpages, the SKUs are listed on Walmart

    My brother and I went to 4 Wal-Marts in the area and found absolutely nothing. The curious thing is that one of them had the schematics for the aisle reset taped up and we didn't see any space allocated for MoTU. Odd.

    Saw price tags on the pegs at one Walmart, but no place in the area shows in stock. Not a big deal, but Iím guessing I should give up on these being available in store tomorrow?

    They have Battlecat and the Skysled in stock, but nothing else. So I imagine the next shipment includes the main roster.

    Nothing in northern new Jersey today either. Doesn't even look like they're resetting the action figure aisle. Went to two stores so far. One claimed to have skeletor in stock but had nothing.

    I went to 2 stores, both which said Battlecat and Jet Sled were in stock, but nothing to be had on the shelves. I did not see any employees nearby that might be able to help except one who did not want to look in the back for Mario Legos for a different person so I did not bother asking. I was hoping to get 2 Battle Cats for my kids and maybe Beastman if they had any.

    My local Wal-Mart here in NC has shown for the past three days that they have two Sky Sleds and three Battle Cats in stock, but I do not believe that enough to actually venture out there lol, especially since the quantity has not changed.

    I'm having flashbacks of 2008 Classics stress lol
    I think this time I'll just wait until they are fully released and available. I foolishly fantasized getting to Walmart early this morning and finding a glorious display of MOTU on the pegs, didn't happen, but I'm sure they will be well stocked soon. And if this proves to be a scavenger hunt then I'll just wait for BBTS to get them in stock. I still see the Matty Collector red screen of death when I close my eyes, so I'll be very happy when these are on pegs and widely available, I bet they even grace the clearance sections before long.

    Nothing here. Asked an employee to check in the back, and she actually checked (which I was surprised to see). She came back and said that Walmart's online inventory system has been messing up for months now.

    Nothing at all in my area. Sigh. Iím sure these will be most places in a couple weeks, but them announcing 8/1 gave me false hope.

    I Went the minute they opened Today, and Found 1 skysled and 2 cases Eternia minis at Clairemont CA Walmart. Grabbed the skysled and a complete set of minis.
    I Went last night to check and the toy pallet looked like it was picked over already. Was holding out hope It was something other than MOTUO but alas, 😢. somethings better than nothing! The hunt continues........

    Three Wal-Marts checked today, assuming they'd be available on the 1st at least. Nothing to be found at any of them. Really disheartening to see that even on the release date Origins is nowhere to be found.

    tried two Walmarts today and nothing. Lots of empty shelf and peg space but no slots marked as for Origins. The one Walmart had moved a few items around including the few Masters of WWE figures they have so they may be preparing for the fall reset (the other store I almost never go to so I can't tell what if anything is different)

    Annoyingly the Walmart website says they have a few He-Mans and Battle Cats left in stock at these locations but again not even a sold out empty peg slot in the store. I almost went to a third store but decided it wasn't worth the 90+ minute round trip for likely nothing. (I have an appointment in the area in a couple weeks anyway so I'll look then) This was only the first day plus they're supposed to be everywhere next year so I'm not going to go out of my way just yet.

    I did manage to find a Classified Snake Eyes and a Plasma series Gozer so the trip wasn't a total bust.

    Been going to walmart every day this week. Saw the aisle reset in 2 wms. both allocated space for motu. Even got skeletor and heman in 1 but they had nothing else. (Did see an entire set of minis too but opted out of that one
    It always takes me 10 minutes to figure out how to edit this signature

    Hit two in the middle of the day in Austin, TX and that was... a mistake. I mean, I found a Prince Adam/Skysled (one of two there) and the only He-Man- so that was a win. But if I come down with coronavirus, the first Wal-Mart was where I caught it
    The store was crazy overcrowded, so many people either wearing a mask incorrectly with their noses hanging out, or you were the one dude with a plastic sort of mouth shield that was sticking five inches away from his mouth and not covering his nose at all... and, well, let's just say we pretty much ran to the toy aisle, grabbed what I needed and got the hell out of there.

    The second one on the way home had no sign that the store was resetting the aisle at all and again, just didn't feel safe enough to really scour the entire toy section to find anything that might have been misplaced.

    Both stores were also wiped out of WWE/MOTU mash-up figures, with the exception of the Grayskull Ring.

    I came home and got the rest of the wave pre-ordered either through Amazon.com, Amazon UK or Forbidden Planet.

    I will probably continue to pop into Wal-Mart in the early morning on regular grocery run day, but I am never going into that human petri dish for Masters Of The Universe toys again.

    Dear Mattel, Covid-19 is real and we need to just be able to order these things on the internet (and I can't believe I'm typing this next part) just like the good old days of MattyCollector (God help us all).

    Also, P.S.- your August 1st launch day was, no big surprise really, kind of an epic fail. Which is not really a biggie considering the state of the world these days, but... for next time, maybe just release these online, like- pre-order style?

    I had nothing this morning as well, in fact I was the first person in the store. Looking at the case of the Sky Sled/Prince Adam set I got earlier this week, the box clearly states "Set Week 27" which means this Sunday 8/2 thru Saturday 8/8 next week. The other case I saw, they have yet to put it out. I'm guessing those who were able to get them earlier, the stores weren't following the tag on the box. Keep positive gang, they will be here!

    Do you mind if I ask which ones you checked? Iím in Chicago too. I struck out this morning at the one in Skokie on Touhy. Itís saying theyíre in stock at the one in Niles so Iím thinking of taking another run at it tomorrow unless you struck out everywhere too.
