OK Found the Thor Dr Pepper can in an UNMARKED case (no Avengers stuff on it) so if you're collecting the cans and missing some check the cans out through the handle. So my can collection's complete. lol

I hope this is true as I think it would round things out perfectly. I was actually going to ask if Fury was going to be re-released or if I should snag the Cap. 6'' version of him.

I found this wave last week visiting the folks in the Dayton, OH area. I have some friends who work in the stockroom and they texted me the night before saying they had arrived. My wife and I were driving in to surprise my mum for her birthday the next day. I took this as a sign of fate and decided to check them out as I wasn't sure if I wanted them or not. Very happy I got them as they look really, really cool.

I'm going to get the Black Widow and Hawkeye 3.75" figs if I see them, just in case I can't find 6" at retail.

While looking for Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters yesterday, I stumbled upon a single Captain America six incher at my local walmart. Since there was only one I guess I had just missed the others.

So pissed. Going to check the other walmart in town for the others.

Does anyone actually have the new Walmart 6" Cap? I haven't gotten one yet and I'm curious about the figure's size.

I broke down and got the 6" Thor off eBay... and was surprised to find it's actually a 7" figure. I mean, I know Thor should be huge and all, but wow. He's WAY out of scale with my older 6" Iron Man from IM2 (I have the one with the alternate head with the sunglasses). I'm curious as to whether Avengers Walmart 6" cap is also going to be comically out of scale with Thor.

Aldo, I picked up all of the Avengers cups at Walmart.

Geez, why is it so hard to get the 6" figures from Walmart? Is the supply this low or the demand is astronomical that they cannot keep anything on the shelves for long?

My guess would be a combination of both. A lot of people are after these figures. With the exception of Iron Man and Captain America the rest only come 1 per case. So basically if someone wants a set and they find a case only one person gets a crack at them.

Also, Walmart is notorious for terrible distribution which is why it's like a kick in the nuts to the fans when you read that something awesome becomes a "Walmart Exclusive".

As far as I know these have only shown up at 1 of like 6 or 7 walmarts in my area and I happened to find them only because I was in the right place at the right time.

Finally had some luck today. I was able to pick up the 6-inch exclusive Captain America and Thor. There was no Loki, Hulk, or Hawkeye. They did have Iron Man, but since that figure is just a reissue, I passed on it.

Is the 6" Hawkeye even released yet, or is that coming in a second wave?

Thanks to Nightcrawler's helpful tip, I spent part of Monday driving in a widening circle around southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island, looking for the 6" figures. No luck anywhere; the empty pegs for them were there, but no figures. Man, what a pain.
