According to Walgreens, this is due to arrive 9/2.

I predict this will be the next new 6" figure anyone finds in a store. Which means we will be getting Vader, Jedi Luke, and the Black Pauldron Sandtrooper before Anakin and the Clone Trooper, which should have been out months ago.  ::)

I'm actually okay with that. The sooner we get Vader the better!

10/15?!?! Yikes, that is a lot later than first anticipated.

I see a lot of guys over at RS jumping on pre-orders, but we have like 150 Walgreen's in this town and I just don't see this being that hard to find.

Nice to have confirmation on the $19.99 price tag though.

That just maybe when online orders are fulfilled. They'll probably be in store before that.

I went ahead and preordered just in case.... if I find one in a store, I'll just cancel it.

I have to think that the pre-orders were part of a formula for Walgreens to determine demand.  Since these sold out in a single day, perhaps Walgreens will be prepared to increase the size of their order.

I was 0-6 this morning at Walgreen's. That's a lot of fail.  :(

Troubling thing is I never even saw one Agent Venom figure, and that has supposedly been out for a few weeks now. Even the GoT stuff has been pretty hit or miss here.

My closest WG's got none in but the manager said a new shipment will come in two weeks. My wife went to Chula Vista two cites away and asked the manager there, he told her they received three and    were taken out of the stock boxes before they had a chance to put them on the shelf.
He's no good to me open

After 3 days I've hit something like twenty different stores and not a single one of them has had ANY of these. But you can find them in Alaska apparently.  ::)

I also found you get a wide range of responses when you ask them to check stock on this item via their computer. Sometimes it seems like they can't tell at all, one guys said, yeah we have them and walked me over to the 12" shampoo bottles, and no one yet has been able to figure out how to check stock at other stores electonically, although I have read they should be able to do this.

Frustrating.

Speaking of Walgreens horrible customer service and overall computer systems... I ordered one of these guys but have since gotten a new credit card.  To get free shipping I had some deodorant tacked onto the order too - that already shipped.

Since part of the order already shipped, the people at their 800 number tell me that there is literally no possible way for them to update the credit card on the order.  I'm fully expecting that the one I ordered will never come based on what they told me.

Which is absurd.

A local (not on this board) was told by a manager a reset is coming next week and was invited to the back to go through 12 bins of toys.  No dice for him but thought that was neat and probably completely out of the norm for a manager to do.

Spoke to a guy today at WG and he told me they are not getting any of the exclusives. Apparently they are a smaller store and don't have the footage in the aisle. It's a newer store as are the rest around me so looks like I'll be hitting store further away.
