A couple of Shazams popped up at a close-ish Walmart yesterday, but I'm guessing there's zero chance one is there by the time I'm off work today. Should I make the trip anyway? Hmmmmm

I got my Az Bat and Parallax at that store (amazingly) by placing an online order, but if I'm not mistaken, Shazam is not online yet, correct?

I'm giving up on Azbats. I checked the app religiously for weeks to no avail, and I go to Walmart at least 3 times a week for various reasons and it's always bupkus. I think I'm just going to convince myself that I'm waiting for a re-release with painted claws that may never come. So weird for there to be DC McFarlane figures that are hard to get after all of these years of them being the easiest line to collect.

Wally West was simple to find. Parallax and AzBats a bit harder. Shazam and Dark Flash have been the most difficult, by far, for me to find. Particularly since Brickseek took a shit and the Wal Mart app doesn’t have a listing for either. The other three I was able to order, no sweat.

As soon as they go below $40.00 on eBay, I’m considering going that route.

Good news is that the Speed Metal wave should be here today.

Did you get Brickseek to give you a quantity on Shazam? He's still just coming up as Unknown when I search for him and still doesn't have a listing on Walmart's site or app.

No, no trace of him online at all but there have been physical sightings in my area.

I was seeing if lightning could strike twice and I could have a successful in-store pick up transaction on two different occasions.

How did you do an in-store pickup on something not listed on Walmart's website?

For Az Bat and Parallax. They were sold out online but showed up as in stock at one of my stores at one point about a month ago. Was able to do a store pick up for those.

Surprised to not only run across the new Target gold label display with Kyle/Deathstroke/Black Adam/ WW - but also surprised to see that Deathstroke was by far the one picked over the most. I ended up grabbing the last two - yet the other 3 characters were barely touched.

Speed Metal wave showed up a day early.

Love ‘em all. Now I really need the fifth figure in this wave…Dark Flash.

WM exclusive Batmobeast with a figure. 50 bucks. But it’s basically just the roll cage.

I almost wonder if these are repacked overstock based on how long both of these releases have been clearanced. THe removal of the shell is just odd though

As someone who enjoyed Dark Knights Metal and Death Metal, and have most of the related McFarlane figures, even I’d say this is a bit much. But I do understand why. I’m just relieved he didn’t put a new figure in with the vehicle.

Todd can keep up the Metal stuff in perpetuity as long as retailers keep biting. But to me, as someone who really liked the comics, there’s only about three more characters I even care about: dried up Swamp Thing, Death Metal Harley, and Zombie Jonah Hex.
