I will say this that third poster looks like it would make a great final movie poster for the movie.

the one you mentioned would be perfect for the IMAX exclusive one

Snagged a few extra figures from my local target yesterday afternoon.

For all of you guys with targets or heck even walmarts in your area, you just have to use a little schmoozing when it comes with employees.

I provided the employee with the DPCI code like i do with anything collectible im looking for at Target and they ran it through their Gemini. And low and behold, we have 8 total.

They brought the case out with no hesitation. Snagged my second zod and second Jor-el.


Also pre-ordered a case of wave 2 http://www.entertainmentearth.com/pr...1#.UYHjfbUsmSo from EntertainmentEarth.com as every single figure is already pre-sold out. Craziness!!!

Pretty sure the above case will have armor zod and shackle zod and only 1 Faora!!! These figures are going to be hard to find.

Pic below of my target purchase with the DPCI code on the receipt for ya.

I picked up my first set from Walmart on Sunday. And of course i had to give the employee the UPC and had them key it in their Gemini as they only had empty pegs. Luckily they had 8 in the back which we all know by now is 1 case.

They brought it out with no problem as well. Its all in the approach when it comes to employees as they are people too.

When you are a collector and you want something bad, well you gotta get out there and get it. Whatever the cost lol.

I used to work at Wal-Mart and I'm still good friends with one of the managers. They only have "kiddie toys" in and a LEGO set....which I bought!

That is definitely frustrating. I have 2 walmarts by my house and 1 of them had zero Movie Masters via the UPC and Gemini. I was literally shocked that the biggest U.S. retailer didn't have 1 single case of MM's in the back. It was ridiculous.

I'm sure your walmarts will get them in. For the time being you could always check target. You gotta utilize all of you options when necessary. Never hold on to one retailer as some as we know will get in stock before others.

Toys r us is the only retailer that has literally nothing when speaking with management and employees even though they have wave 2 listed online lol. go figure

Did you check all of your local targets? I have about 4 to 5. However you can check 1 store and have them check if any others have any in stock.

Where are you located?

May be that they just haven't shipped to your area yet.

They will hit soon. Just keep on them. Especially that 1 target as they will probably only get 1 maybe 2 cases.

Crazy to think that these stores are only getting in 1 case of Movie Masters at a time.

I really think the Green Lantern MM/regular figure situation really deterred retailers as they so over ordered on that film.

I never liked the adult superhero costumes. If you're gonna go that route, you kinda need to have the body for it and you can't cheap out. Getting the higher quality "deluxe" costumes might help cover up some nasty flaws, but getting the cheap Rubies costumes with the onesie that ties in the back...ugh. You end up looking like you're in a pair of ill-fitting pajamas that shrank in the wash.

I went to 4 Wal-Marts, a Target, and a Toys R Us today. One Wal-Mart cracked open a case of the basic figures for me (I already had the Superman, but I grabbed the Zod), but had no MM figures. The last Wal-Mart only had three Superman MM figures left, so I grabbed one of those. Nothing anywhere else. One Wal-Mart, the Target, and the Toys R Us didn't even have a place for MOS stuff.

There was other stuff I didn't have much interest in at the other Wal-Marts. Mainly more kid oriented figures, a cape and foam chest piece, the gauntlets, and a utility belt are a few I'm remembering.

So, would that DCPI code be the same for Wal-Mart's too?
