Hey, so did I! I got one for me and my fiance. I was going to post a picture I took of us but then I noticed that we all seem to like anonymity on these boards. lol

Where can the Movie Masters figures be found? There's nothing on Amazon or Wal-Mart.com and the prices on ebay are jacked up, as usual.

Wal-Mart, Target, Toys R Us etc. They're not allowed to hit shelves until May 1st but Wal-Mart will have them out on Monday.

eBay because these things are produced and packaged overseas in China that they usually hit stores and warehouses there and then folks snag some to sell online. Also some stores have received their shipment and comic book stores like Midtown Comics got their MOS stuff a couple of weeks ago and began selling them instantly.

Is that what Wal*Mart looks like these days? Looks exactly like Target.

I think that came from the Wal-Mart website...I think it's just a photo they put up of what the displays will look like. Wal-Mart stores aren't supposed to put them up until Sunday

All the toys have already arrived (although I haven't seen any Movie Masters yet) ... I've seen some of the Lego sets ... cool stuff, but yeah have May 1st date on them.

However, the Man of Steel displays haven't arrived yet, and I'm not sure when they're exactly going up. Usually for PDQ's like that, they arrive mid to late during the week before being displayed ... maybe they'll show up in the next day or two.

I can't wait til we have the trailer playing on the store television feed. That will be cool.

Oh, and we've had several people call over the last couple days asking about the tickets, so hopefully that bodes well for interest.

My manager friend said they go up Sunday

and the trailer playing in store would be a HUGE boost I think

lets not forget that store employees steal them from warehouse to store. Some employees also pick the short packed ones to sell or keep and they don't make it to the floor.

lol, I just talked to my brother, and he has a bit of experience with Play Arts Kai figures, and he said that even if they look great in their pictures, doesn't the actual figures will be the same.

Found this on Instagram. With the caption 'I read that WalMart would start merchandise sales on Monday. On a whim, I swung by to see if they were out at one nearby and they were! If you have one close, can't hurt to check?'



Colour me jealous.

Hmm, I don't see any movie master figures. It will be very likely YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) when going to Walmart to see if they have some of this out already. Thing is I'll probably just get the movie master figures. The Lego sets are tempting but I don't collect Legos mostly because you can easily lose pieces and they are hard to store.
