Went to a Walmart 20 minutes from my house last night on tip from a forum member on another board that they had butt loads of Armored Zods and sure enough was able to snag 2 Faoras and 2 Zods for my bro and me. Now just have to find Superman with Key and Shackled Zod and I'm all done with these.

BTW, I have and extra Jor-El if anyone is looking for one. Gladly trade it for Superman with Key or Shackled Zod!

Still nothing new in NC. The only Walmart near me that carries Movie Masters put up a whole slew of Wave 1 Supermen. Another Walmart has the endcap up, but still no Movie Masters. So very sad am I.

Yep, I've been finding either no Movie Masters at all or either just one Zod or Superman hanging on the peg. I've been checking every day at several stores, but no luck. Seems like we usually get the waves after everyone else has found them for a few weeks. Probably start popping up at the end of next week.

That wouldn't be too bad considering I'll have just gotten paid and will really want to buy something Man of Steel after seeing the movie.

If I can remember correctly, when people were finding John Blake and Ra's al Ghul TDKR movie masters and posting them online, I finally saw them about 2 1/2 weeks after everyone else had one. So that's my hope at least, I will push a kid out of my way if I see that Armored Zod finally hanging on a peg.

Ahahaha, I nearly pushed over someone's cart when I found Ra's not long after Christmas. Like I said earlier, MMs are just warming the pegs around here

Haha, the search for the TDKR figures were a little nuts. One morning before work I went into Wal-Mart and it was around 6:45 am, so not many people and pretty quiet in the store. There was an employee putting stuff out at the very far end of the isle and I walked up and saw John Blake sitting right there in the front of all the movie masters. I yelled a curse kind of loud and the woman looked over at me and I just smiled back. It was aggravating, but a lot of fun searching for those.

I hope these don't end up being like that. Hopefully everyone can end up finding the figures they want without trouble. I am hoping we aren't seeing many in my area from fans and kids getting them rather than scalpers which happens a lot.

Yea, MMs were hard to get around here for TDK/R and GL, I only got Hal of the GL set, and I got all the TDK/R ones I wanted(with a little help from fellow hypsters with Bane and Two Face) The MOS line has been surprisingly easy

I don't know guys, thinking about taking a ride out to my closest Wal-Mart. I'm eager to see, but don't want to make the drive and come back empty handed. Decisions, decisions....

Got Blake and Ras on Amazon for retail, but ended up finding both randomly at a Walmart in TRU. For those there was the extra bonus of getting a Batsignal together. Too bad they didn't do it for these figs. Namek CnC?

Yeah I am a little upset that they didn't include some kind of CnC for this series and even more variety to be honest. Superman with the key is the exact same figure and Zod in shackles is basically the same as the first wave Zod. There should be a Lois and I'd even argue one of the Kryptonian council members with their customary dress that we've seen in the official movie guide. The Namek idea is great, just don't understand why they shortchanged us on these.

It always takes an extra amount of will to get myself up and going when I'm pretty sure there is nothing new. It definitely pays off when you find something though. If I go and there is nothing I'm looking for I will usually try to pick something up though, a Blu-ray or some candy, just anything that isn't too pricey.

Lately, I just wait for an excuse to go. Today was dog food. Yesterday was groceries. I'll figure out something for tomorrow.

Good call. I do the excuse thing, too. "Honey, you said you needed that big thing of olive oil, right?" "Yes, but it can wait, we're...." "Sweet, off to Wal-Mart, catchya'll later..."

If I can find the Fortress Key in time, I'll probably wear it to the premiere.

Is it still possible to get tickets for the Walmart screening at this point?

I honestly doubt it's too late. Call up there and ask the electronics personnel if there are any left.

I'd love to, but the body isn't quite what it used to be. There's a Supes outfit in my closet right now that I put together in excitement for Superman Returns. Had a blast going to that midnight showing with others in costume.

Have we seen any pics of the expensive MOS costume they're putting together? I forget what it's called. Meanwhile, I've been eyeing some nice New 52 outfits and it has prompted me to work out again. As much as I bench press, though, I'll always have more of a Spider-man frame than a Superman one. Who cares, though, right?
