Walmart Collector Con Official Announcement

Recommended Posts

Walmart is really screwing this up with it already being 10 minutes after 10 and no images for the products being sold.  One of the vehicles is already showing up as sold out as well.

So there was a couple of things that caught my eye there were 4 when I clicked on them they said star wars on the top no images or description it was guessing. By the time they came up who was who from the Star Wars figures they were sold out. Same thing with the Marvel figures which turned out to be Venomized Cap(ugh) and Movie Cable(waste of plastic). 

 Movie Cable(waste of plastic).   .... lol yep. This product offering is doing nothing so far to tempt my wallet.

Yeah, nothing so far has been a need so I'm not so upset about the caca storm that was this Walmart Collector Con.

Everything within the parameters. Did anyone expect anything different?.

Ok product being added but no links working..yet.... Hmm, not sure if I see any "must buys" but apparently more for Transformers & GI Joe being revealed in a half hour.

I don't see pictures on most of the Joe stuff there...

Honsestly, I expected the Funko stuff to go up with everything else but also be sold out immediately. 
Going on the website at five minutes to 10, refreshing every 30 seconds only to see "coming soon" and then having to figure out when the hell that might be would have been my second guess.

So I had an odd experience with this this morning.  At roughly 6:30AM pacific time (9:30 eastern) while watching the Transformers live stream I refreshed my 3 screens sitting on that Walmart page and one of the pages suddenly showed me the portal where I could go in and order some of the items.  So basically on one computer I somehow got in a half hour early.  At that time the images/names/descriptions were still missing and all the Joe/Transformers stuff was shown as out of stock, but I was at that time able to order all the Marvel and Star Wars items (even though I had no idea what I was actually ordering at that time).  
 

So that was kind of weird.  
 

Did the AWE Striker ever show up as in stock?  I was able to get all the Joes once they did go live but I never saw the AWE striker show up as available so not sure if it just sold out quick or if it’s still coming

I'm curious, are these collector con items being sold in store? Or Are they online only?

Jay will probably have a better answer, but it's my understanding that many of these items are to be sold in stores, too. Most of us, however, really wouldn't have any better luck with that.

Agreed. so far the in store selection has been spotty at best, non-existent on a normal day. It's a frustrating time to collect....hmm although I suppose if you sell on the after-market you're happy..so..yay for that.

Yeah, my old Walmart was pretty decent for finding stuff. The one where I moved to now is depressing, empty shelves and no sign of stocking.

I went to Walmart Friday, it was barren. Not a single Marvel Legends on shelf. One ESB 40th Anniversary Lando thats been on the peg for over a month. They also had a bunch of Multiverse Batman (Det Comic 1000, BTAS and White Knight)  a few Tramsformers, wave 2 of the Masters of the WWE, 4 Plasma series Peter Venkmum and a set of the Retro Ghostbusters figures with bent up cardbacks.

Oh and over in the Entertainment Section where they are keeping the NECA stuff they had 2 Godzilla figures and Friday the 13th Jason. No TMNT at all.

Im still waiting for Walmarts PR people to get back to me on that. They didnt know but said they would check. I think some will and some wont but dont know for sure.

Has anybody had success with any of the con drops so far? I decided I'm not even attempting this year.

I am not even going to get excited about this, as Walmart and Target consistently fail at preorders and exclusives, they dont protect against bots at all, and it just sounds like a headache waiting to happen.

How stupid is that? I can't even sign into Pulse without proving I'm not a robot.

Most of my Walmarts are weird. Most of the time, their toy departments look like my local K-Mart the day before it closed. Then maybe once or twice a year, usually around the holidays, you'll hit one and it's like Randall visiting the video store in Clerks. Pegs loaded to near overflowing with everything you could want. BEAUTIFUL. A week later, its the surface of the moon again.

Mind you, this was before Covid-19 ever became a thing. Nowadays . . . no change whatsoever.

Does these toys can be shipped overseas too? Or I have to look somewhere else?

If I were you I would really start to consider my other options.

Nope, which is my gripe all the time with these Target/Walmart/Walgreen exclusives... the sites solely ship within the US, however these figures maybe and can show up as exclusives to stores in your country.. but also might not.. you probably also won't get any information in regards to if they are.. you may just one day waltz into a retailer and see one of these US exclusives on a peg or maybe click your fav local etailer.. and go wow cool, but most likely you won't know and you will miss out, happens often here in Canada so I can imagine elsewhere is the same... really makes me mad, that there is little to no support from these companies outside of the US and whom these companies might partner with if at all internationally, so yeah maybe look elsewhere...or my motto is... fagata bout it..maybe you might get lucky... or there is always the fact these are really technically EBay exclusives for 80 bucks in your currency

I don't think so... You may have to relay on buying at another retailer online if there is any or buy from eBay or from another fan that can give you a better price than on all the other options...

I kinda can't believe it, since I wasn't using some kind of bot, but I lucked out and was able to preorder the Marty McFly POP! at just before 12:01 AM.  Looks like it was gone off the site by 12:02.
