I tried the "Hey, here's the MM UPC, can you guys please order more" approach at WM, and was told that until they sell what they have, they won't get any more new figures, and if they do, it can take up to 2 weeks.
Does this pretty much match up with other Hyper's attempts?
I know the UPC is an assortment number but it doesn't hurt to try
Me- *gives an Walmart employee the Blake UPC*
Employee *Push button, Push button, Push button*
Employee- Not showing up anything. Check Walmart.com. Site to shipping is free!
I've asked 3 different employees every two weeks and given them the UPC. Usually they can tell me that it's an assortment number and they can't tell whether the next shipment will contain this figure.
Pretty much, at all Wal-Marts and TRUs all I get is "We have what we have" and when I ask if they can order more or if there's more coming in, I usually just get the answer "Probably in a couple weeks" or "Check back next week or the week after"
I did hear at Wal-Mart and at K-Mart though that they are expecting to put up a display soon.
I went to TRU today and spoke with the manager there. He claims that there are tons of scalpers lurking around his store for these figures and that he has boxes of them in the back waiting to be released on the floor. They have this schedule that they will only release one or two of these figures at a time to avoid those scalper from buying in bulk. I'm not sure if this is true.
hmm, i got this email from amazon:There were just 7 Blakes on Amazon for $16.99, and gone within minutes. Rediculous
