Found the entire wave today at Walgreens.  Picked up the Governor & both Riot Gear Zombies.  I didn't care for Andrea or Carl at all.

Agreed, that looks awesome and is a must buy. Not sure what other deluxe sets they could possibly follow it up with, maybe Rick and his horse, but even if it is just a one-off it's a cool idea.

I am really stoked about the Daryl with Bike. Looks like a great set! I think horses with characters (Rick or Michonne) are the only other realistic options at the moment, but kind of boring. Maybe we'll get the Hyundai next.  :P

How about an ultra-deluxe RV with Dale?

Does anyone here collect the minimates WD figures?  I have 6-7 now and have been eying up the Lego Camper set to display with them...

Just got back from TRU where I was able to score the new Dixon Brothers 2-pack hot off the truck. Price was $29.99, but I will likely just return it when my local comic shop gets these as they are usually cheaper. They also had the latest TV Series on the pegs (Andrea, Carl, etc) for something crazy like $15.99 I think?

Super psyched to have scored this right before Sunday's premiere!

Just watched the premiere today - I thought it was pretty "meh".

Anyway, I went to Walgreens today to pick up a prescription and I saw these figures were being sold there and the normal price on them was $13.50 which I thought was pretty good.  Then I saw they had them on sale for $9.99 until the 26th - so that is pretty sweet.  Too bad they still aren't cool enough for me to jump in on them.  I guess I just don't like the McFarlane style (especially their articulation) or the scale.

They had the entire Andrea wave at my local store

That's weird...I had heard about the $9.99 sale too, but I haven't seen any signage to that effect around here. I guess I need to price scan them to confirm. I would love some more riot zombies.

I was able to confirm that these are on sale for 9.99 @ walgreen's, but you have o have their discount card or whatever, which I do. Unfortunately though, there are no more riot zombies to be had anywhere around here.  :(

Finally saw several of these at TRU recently. They look pretty good, with Andrea being the least but still not bad. I really dig the zombie guards in riot gear.

Totally missed your post McMetal. Negan looks great and it's nice that they are offering another comic character! It's definitely an awesome Black Friday special, but it sucks it isn't more of a deal. I was spoiled by those $10 Series 4 figures this fall. The real killer on the deal might be shipping. I remember back in July when the SDCC Governor was for sale, shipping was only offered $13 or so for a single figure. Hopefully they will have cheaper (or free!) shipping options this time around.

I just bought both of the new Negans - colored and B&W variant, priority USPS shipping for both came to $12. Since this is a new sort of promotion with no alternate retail outlet and a possibly limited run, I didn't want to take a chance and miss out. (Like I did on the Hobbit Azog and Radagast figures that were up on Amazon, still ruing that one)

I didn't spend a dime otherwise on Black Thursday Night so what the hell.
