Has anyone seen the exclusive Venom or Spidey at Walmart?

On Saturday/Sunday, I didn't see either of them at either of our local WM stores.  I don't think it was because they were "sold out" either - as it didn't seem as if many people were out looking for these as you might see on a big Star Wars release day.  At least that was my experience.  I haven't seen them here yet, but I'll be checking again this week.  I wouldn't mind picking them up, unless the pricepoint is outrageous.  I think they are supposed to be basic figure price, but at our Wal-Mart, that's already pretty pricey at nearly $9.

The one Wal-Mart that I've been to since the Saturday release had a bunch of Spider-Mans, but no Venoms.

Same with Neil. Had I seen the Venom (It's actually black! Who knew!) I'd have been all over it.

I stopped by WM this morning, and found the Exc. Spidey.  They had about a dozen or so of the Spidey, but no sign of the Venom.  Also, our local store has lowered their prices since Sunday (from $8.67 to $7.88), but the "exclusive" Spidey was $9.96.

I stopped by my local K-Mart looking for 30AC figures this AM and I noticed the Spidey 3 figures there are... $10.49 plus tax.   :o

I thought $7.99 for these was crazy, but dang!

Yeah, the stores are pricing these things crazy for the most part.  Especially when Hasbro (ToyShop) is selling them for $7.99 themselves - it shouldn't really be higher than that.  Target is definitely the place to be this week, for anyone who is interested.  I picked up the figures there for $5.99 each.  That's much more in line with what they are worth.  They aren't bad figures though really, the scale/articulation issues aside.  Having them set up on the desk here, I can't say I would have minded if the Legends line had started at this type of scale from the beginning.  A little easier to manage - space wise.

Speaking of Legends, I see there are a couple reports on the Fwoosh forums of HML2 showing up at Wal-Mart.  One of the reports was from South Sioux City, NE of all places.  I checked our store today while I was there, but just found 2 Hercules and a Banshee on the pegs.  Maybe keep an eye out in your areas though.

Are they going to make an Eddie Brock figure of Topher Grace?

This may not be news, but a local collector grabbed the ML Blob wave today at Wal-Mart.

Yeah, me too, and the distinct symbols used on the packaging add to the attraction. I hope I can find a set to keep ...

I'd love a set of these too but unfortunatly there are none in my area and they all seem to be on ebay. They say these were limited to 3,000pcs and I find that hard to believe with an exclusive, Hasbro figure. If I can't find one at retail I'm not messing with them. They seem to go for about $10-$15 on ebay right now. Something just doesn't seem to add up on these. Limited to 3,000 but no one is really jumping on them on ebay? They have to be more common or else no one really seems to care about these.
The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.
