Can someone get me a worthy cap and I’ll pay cost plus shipping?  Thanks

I would second that request... if Walmart’s distribution truly is flooding some areas with them while others see nothing, we can work together to correct it.

I went to Walmart everyday this week and saw employees with stock carts in every department... except toys.

Looks like that Vintage Storm pre-order is all out of stock/unavailable already! , I'm bummed out, I had her pre-ordered along with some of the rest of the wave in the cart and I forgot went to sleep and woke up and was unable to secure the pre-order on her, I knew it, should have been faster this is going to be the impossible figure to find, I still can't even get Beast at a regular price

I have also been checking walmart daily for Cap here in GA. Went a little outta my way tonight to one i rarely go to. No Cap. But i did FINALLY find Jubilee and Gambit! They had 2 full cases of Caliban wave and Kingpin wave. 

Where in GA have you been looking at? I am in GA as well. Used to be in FL but now I am in GA. Maybe we can help each other out.

I have been asking and going around every Walmart around like a maniac and no Captain America.

Not sure if this is true in Canada, but Beast's back down to MSRP on Amazon.

I saw Beast on Amazon for regular price earlier tonight, you may want to check there.

According to Fedex my Infamous Iron Man order was delivered to my local Walgreens this morning. Just to bad the store never received it.

Soooo, after a call to my local store, two live chats, and a call to the "specialists" at Walgreens corporate (and a combined 2 hours on hold) I'm pretty much burned out on the whole Walgreens exclusive concept.

Long story short, they can't resubmit my order as WG.com no longer sells the IM figure, so I have to wait for Walgreens to contact Fedex to see where my figure went, so they can know whether to issue me a refund.

Did I say "Burned Out?" Scratch that. I HATE store exclusives!!!

When Walgreens.com stops selling an exclusive, it’s usually because they’ve all been sent to their retail stores. I’ve been seeing them at a few Walgreens in my area and I’d be willing to bet that it becomes much more common very soon.

After realizing I had REALLY overdone it on pre-ordering, I went back and cancelled everything but the Wolverine vs. Hulk set. Then I went back and used the fan credit from Pulse to pre-order Spider-Woman (Carpenter) again, and pre-ordered the Magneto, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch set yesterday.

That'll probably be it for a while, at least till I can establish some ground rules. Just like at brick-n-mortar, you have to pace yourself or you'll spend yourself broke.

I have been overdoing it as well. August is going to be a pretty expensive month for me being an X-Men fan. I had quite abit pre-ordered. I had Boom Boom, Cannonball, and Guardian pre-ordered on Dorkside loose with them being around 15 dollars a piece or under. Then I had to cancel them telling myself I need to free up some money with everything that has been happening in my life so far. Storms and other costly repairs. I also canceled Beta Ray Bill. I got charged for Scorpion and Spiderwoman by Dorkside on Friday so they are on their way. I found myself changing my mind on Hydroman and grabbing him on Ebay for around 24 dollars total.

Right now I just have pre-ordered:

July:

Loki Amazon

Magneto, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch 3 Pack Amazon

August:

Hulk two pack Dorkside

Nightcrawler Dorkside

Mr. Sinister Dorkside

Storm Amazon

Iceman Amazon

Dazzler Amazon

On the Lookout for the Colossus two pack as well as classic Thor. Hoping they will be September or October releases. 

I am digging into my loose change jar that I keep for a rainy day to use for August. Alot of cross offs on my want list for that month. Been trying to figure out who to cross off but I will be burning gas money looking for these so best to leave them where they are at. I can't wait to get that Hulk!

Looks like we're all on the same page. Unfortunately, there are also lines, crazy as it may sound, I collect that are NOT Marvel related. Turns out the monkey on my back also likes Overwatch Ultimates and PR Lightning Collection. Naturally, guess who has a 70+ dollar boxed set and an SDCC Exclusive around the corner.

 Of course I also set back a nice chunk 'o change for this years ML SDCC Exclusive . . . whatever it may be. 

Still, there is no scenario in play, nor will there be, that will have me cancel the Hulk set, Carpenter or Dazzler. Not . . . Gonna . . . Happen.

Yeah that Lightning Collection SDCC Exclusive looks awesome! I wish I could go for it, but I'm looking at the NECA TMNT set as well.  Not to mention what Hasbro will have in store for ML.  And like you said earlier, all the pre-order possibilities are overwhelming.

See I can't really get with all of this pre-ordering business, It's overwhelming, there is too much offered to far down the road it gets boggling so I really try and stay away from doing so, I wait for the figure to actually get released in stock I prefer this, I mean once in a while it screws me on finding the harder to find figs because they skyrocket in price but there is tons of times those figs just literally jump out the gate with an increased price (like Beast) , Hasbro has been so damn over generous with these literally a year in a advance pre-orders it's too much I refuse to get on it. I'd just rather relax and watch things come out when they come out.

I did the preorder thing for a while...but it stresses me out. I basically just wait now until figures are in stock....then I order them...wait impatiently by the mail box...grab them and run to my studio ripping the box open and laughing maniacally and screaming "it's mine...its mine!"

Is that just me?

Nah. I might preorder exclusives that seem likely to sell out, such as the Magneto/Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver three-pack, but otherwise I try my best to score the lowest price possible, and I'm very patient in that pursuit. I too am much less patient, however, about tearing open that packaging and setting up my new dollies.
