Wal-Mart carries Spawn now? The only McFarlane stuff my local WMs carry are the Sportpicks.

The 500 largest Wal-Marts carry Spawn and a few other McFarlane figures besides sports.  Mine has Spawn and Matrix.  In fact that Sam & Twitch and Raven Spawn 2 are Wal-Mart exclusives.  They did the same thing with series 24.  They had a masked version of Santa and Halloween Spawn.  They also have an exclusive Manga Spawn 2-pack and soon to come out Samurai Spawn and Takeda the archer 2-pack.  The best part is the Spawn figures are $7.73 and the 2-packs are $14.78.  I have heard some say they have Movie Maniacs at Wal-Mart.

I'm positive no Wal-Marts in Iowa are on the 500 biggest list, so I guess we won't get 'em. Which sucks, because I'd like to get Redeemer and Spawn from this most recent series for $7.73 instead of $10.

And Movie Maniacs at Wal-Mart? Wow.

Biker Chick repaint available at Spawn store now

Not really my style, but can't beat the price.  Sit on it for a year to make it trade bait.   ;)

Pretty wild, eh?  I'll be passing on those, but the new 6" predators should be showing up fairly soon.  Always happy to have more for the collection.

I saw them today.  They look alright, but I can't understand why they're doing this series now.  When is the movie due out after all?  And then there's the matter of the toy line for the movie as well.

Found the new Aliens and Predators at GameStop today. I picked up the Alien from the first movie, as I thought he looked cool. I'll pass on the Aliens Warrior Alien. I will buy both Predators, but they're pretty pricy at GameStop and their ilk ($12.99).

I don't know when the new movie figures are coming out. Probably around August would be my guess.

It's the movie figures I'm after.  The figures you saw Ben are the repaints of the last release, or so I am led to believe.  

$12.99 expensive?  Come north, TRU is cheapest and nearly the only retailer for them: $15.99 plus 14% taxes.

Elvis has landed at Walmart.  This is the young version in black, Vegas maybe 1968?  I think the packaging states what it is, but I didn't look that close.  Not so keen on this version, will pick it up if it makes it to clearance.  Waiting on  either the Blue Hawaii version of the dead-on-the-toilet-fat-king version.  Not sure if these will be released though.
