Wave 10 Hits

Recommended Posts

yeah i'm gonna start looking tonight at my walmart, lady said they'd be coming next week but i'm not taking any chances. she's trying to help me yet she's not giving me enough info as some of the managers you guys talk to, like which characters or wave she ordered, so yeah i'm going to check tonight at 10:30 or so which is when they have all their toy pegs out, wish me luck

 

 

the toy manager CANNOT order specific characters or waves. They never have been able to, for any toyline.

 

 

All they can do is say "hey, we are low on DC Universe Classics, please send more"... the distribution center will send whatever they have available. So if they have a buttload of wave 6/7 cases, that might be what you get.

 

Hopefully, by now they have ran out of those cases, and have wave 10 in their warehouses

 

I don't think toy managers can order anything...at all. I believe it's all done by computer.

Toy managers can order DCUC--now whether they want to or not is another story entirely. I'm certain some will just say they can't so they don't have to hassel with a persistent customer like myself but they most definitely can order manually with their telxon by scanning the peg label. They can order as many as they want as well. Now the store manager reviews all of these orders and if he determines that they have too much stock they can and will delete the order made by the toy manager.

They absolutely can.

 

Now, finding one to ask them to do it....and having them know enough to do it....and then actually convincing them to do it....those are different issues.

So I was planning on hitting the stores pretty hard in the morning, but when I got off of work tonight, I got a crazy idea to hit the Walmart closest to my house. I went home changed clothes and made a small grocery list, so the trip would not be a total waste. When I got to Walmart, I parked closest to the Garden Center as I customarily do. I grabbed a cart because I was buying groceries and headed to toys. When I turned the corner of action figures, to my surprise was a full case of Wave 10. Since I picked up the Joker, Power Girl, and Batman last week at this same Walmart, I left those for the next lucky soul who has sought these out.

With the Public Enemies Superman I found this morning, I would say it has been a day of happy hunting!

You don't think you could go back and get another, I will buy them from you and pay the shipping costs.

 

You are so lucky!!

These should of been as easy as PE figs. I must give it up to Target, they have a much better system this time around for their exclusives.

 

Yeah? Bet me. I haven't been able to find those either.

I will help out when I can, but my toy budget was streched a little thin this week with all of wave 10 and the 4 Public Enemies 6" figures as well as the Public Enemies 6-pack.

The hunt for these is starting to drive my effin crazy!

 

Steady as she goes.

 

I'm trying to network with the local Wal Mart toy employees to hopefully ensure I get the three figures I want from this set. After some discussion last night there is a possibility that if I time things right and get there on time, I could buy a case. At which point I'd be willing to sell them for cost / shipping to other fans who just want the darned things. Sort of like a plastic Robin Hood, but without all the theft. :P

No worries.

 

However as it stands, if I do luck out and get a case I'm taking Power Girl, Joker, and Manbat for my collection. My buddy is looking for a PG, Joker, and Beast Boy. So if things continue as they are currently, the case will be pretty picked over; but whatever's left is up for grabs. :)

Congrats!

 

i just keep telling myself rule 1 in toy collecting..."i dont have to be first to have it. patience."

it worked last wave 5 for me, itll work again...

 

Really? Wave 5 was a total no go for me, which is why I'm so afraid for this wave. Every time I went to Wal-Mart looking for Wave 5 all they had in stock was Riddler.

 

Just saw an Amazo going for $125 at Mid Ohio Con. :(

I'm actually cool with the wait. Chances are I'll find them eventually. Besides, the longer it takes, the more money I can save in preparation.

true. patience is a virtue. i'd rather wait and wake up early than pay $300+ for a F***n' set.

Ok, guys I don't mean to be a naysayer! But keep your wits about ya when dealing for these guys! I'm not saying these new posters are a bunch of fakes, but really be careful when dealing with new members who can get you the hard to find items! Perhaps they can, but be careful! We don't want anyone getting scammed!!!

So I get a call this afternoon from my walmart store and they told me that they got a case of DC figures so I rush out there, they bring out what I'm positive is a wave 10 case and she opens it factory sealed to reveal a Best of case.

 

Oh well! I'm glad I already got my set or I'd have pulled my hair out because this was like the 10th case of these I've seen in the last 6 weeks. Good thing I've got the next waves online pre0ordered because the walmarts in my area keep getting more of the same figures they already have and haven't sold in 6 months. I don't see them ordering anymore anytime soon.

 

I don't really care personally if walmart has a glut of these or not now but I am worried in the sense that I hope that the glut of 6/7 doesn't hurt walmart continuing to carry the DCUC line and without walmart's support DCUC collapses much like DCSH and MOTU 200x.
