    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 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.

    No store can tell what figure is coming in, its all in assortments. They do not inventory individual figures. You can give them catowman figure upc, telezon will say catwoman 6 movie masters or w.e and say on hand 8. When we know they do not have 8 catwomans. Usually when a series is down to 2 or 3 figures the system automatically orders, if the case will fit on the shelf cap.

    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.

    I heard the same thing at my loak toys r us today! They said they can't keep the scampers at bay. They had a line at the door this morning and try all went straight for the figure isle. I don't even know how I managed to beat them to the Selina and John Blake that I got!

    TRUs still has nothing. I spoke with the manager and verified that they have not received any new shipments in the last few weeks. The single restock that they did do was from the first batch they had left over.

    Target was fully stocked. 3 pegs. All Batman and Bane.

    :(

    Went to Walmart

    Top hook- 4 Batman's.

    Middle hook 4 Batman's

    Bottom hook- 3 Banes

    They're probably not going to restock since it look fully stocked. Someone needs to get rid of all those Batman's!


    I've got one more Walmart to check out tomorrow but i'm not hopeful to see a Blake.

    Except for west coasters and on-line, has anyone found Blake or Ra's at a retail store?

    Alright... I got all of my thoughts together. What I have and what I need.

    I have:
    Movie Masters Joker (Toys R' Us exclusive) Joker with rocket launcher. Mint on Card
    Movie Masters Catwoman (goggles up). I have 3 mint on card
    Movie Masters Catwoman (goggles down). Mint on card
    Movie masters Catwoman Signal piece

    I want:
    Loose Goggles Down Catwoman
    Bat Signal piece #3 (Alfred's piece)
    Ras (The Dark Knight rises Version)
    Shirtless 2 pack Bane (or just his arms if anyone has any fodder lying around)

    I would also take Ras' signal piece. I am not really looking for the figure but I would take it. Same goes for Alfred.

    Also, there is a thrift store by me that has a Gothem City Thug that I could buy if anyone is looking for that.


    I am nt looking to make a steal or scalp anything. I will make even trades :o)

    PM me if you have any of the above or if you need any of the above :O)

    I was a lucky few who found Blake and Gordon on Walmart's website before they sold out. I'm checking there periodically for the Ra's figure to appear.

    There were just 7 Blakes on Amazon for $16.99, and gone within minutes. Rediculous

    hmm, i got this email from amazon:

    "We now have delivery date(s) for the order you placed on July 09, 2012:

    "Batman The Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters GCPD Blake Collector Figure"
    Estimated arrival date: August 02, 2012 - August 03, 2012"

    it hasn't shipped, but I'm assuming that means it's going to?

    These stories are absolutely sickening. Am I the only one that hates these scalpers? If someone buys 2 of a figure, that's fine, but anymore and that's a load of crap.
