Mattel WWE lines
Maybe having only one WWE thread is a bit too all encompasing. We can always break it into smaller, more focused threads down the road.
I had my WM preorder for the WWE Superstars Mr T and Macho Man canceled. Are these guys still popping up in stores? I see some on ebay, so I'm assuming they've hit but am not sure if I have a chance of still finding them in stores.
I've never seen anything past the DiBiase/Shango/Mankind wave in stores, which is several waves back now. WM cancelled preorders for Savage, Typhoon, Rock, and Mr T. I'm assuming the ones on the bay and elsewhere are stores receiving them from overseas somehow.
@jonaskane, I found the four canceled figures at Walmart about two weeks ago on my usual early Sunday morning shopping run. I got lucky, they had one set and I haven't seen any since.
The Basic male figures are apparently moving away from T-crotches. I hope they can bring back some kind ankle articulation, even if it's just the pinned type. I don't think I bought any male figures since they dropped the ankle articulation and the only female figure I payed full price for was Toni Storm.
Nice, maybe they'll show up around here eventually.
I saw WWE Superstars Rock and Typhoon at my local WM. They must have gotten that wave in this week. Someone cut a hole out of the Rock's packaging. I couldn't figure out why and then realized he must come with a microphone which someone just had to have. I do want the Mr T and Macho Man from this wave, but I'm assuming this store will get more in. Will just have to check a little more often than I normally do.
Saw an ebay listing for the whole wave of Hogan, Piper, Perfect and Bam Bam.
Stopped at The same WM where I missed Mr T last week. They had more of his wave. One Macho Man and no Mr Ts in the action figure aisle. I pick up Macho Man. Decide to check the clearance aisle. They had one each of the wave marked down to $12. Got the marked down Macho Man, Mr T, and decided to get the Rock cause at that price why not? Passed on Typhoon since I really have no memory of him. So crazy they had the wave in the action figure aisle at full price and then a case of them in the clearance aisle for almost half off. So weird. Lookin forward to the next wave.
Good lord. I have no idea why my last post formatted like it did. This new Fwoosh...is interesting.
Hit every WM in my area, nothing but Bray Wyatt and Ultimate Warrior everywhere.
Found Rock/Quake/Macho/Rude today.
A buddy on the other end of the state found Hogan, Perfect, and Bam Bam for me.
And found Typhoon, Mr T, and Hot Rod today. All caught up for now, with preorders in for Capt. Lou and Vader; let's see if WM manages not to dork it up this time.
I got Earthquake and Rude on Saturday. Here's the problem, I can't remember if I bought them before I found wave 4 a month and a half ago. I have had to bin some of the newer figures and a quick search turned up nothing. This morning, I left for work early to hit up another Walmart and found Piper, Perfect, and Bam Bam.
Saw a listing on eBay for a chase/variant/error(?) Hogan with blue boots.
