Spotted a lone Bret Hart at a Walmart tonight. He's the only one in the wave I didn't want, of course. Good to see some sign of them in stores, though.

Bret Hart is the only one I -do- want. I'll have to keep an.... eye out... for him.


'Cause he's Tri-Klops.


Eye.

Like Tri-Klops.....


I'll see myself out.

God, the prices for Wave 7 and Wave 8 are insane on eBay.

Looking at Brickseek, every one of my Wal-Marts clearanced out this line but two. Really hoping these last two waves eventually get dumped at Ross or Big Lots.

My wife found wave 8 at Walmart last night - Stone Cold, Chynna (RIP!) and Rey Mysterio.

Austin's not bad but all these do is make me sad that I missed Junkyard Dog ... And Mr. T.

Stores skipped Wave 7 in a lot of places.

I wouldn’t be shocked if these showed up in places like Ross or Big Lots next year. The product was made, likely just stuck on a cargo ship. Wal-Mart doesnt want it anymore since a lot of stores removed the tags for these and clearanced them.

Jeez this is going to be a very stressful wave to get. Mattel Creations needs to get on this fast!

This was such an awesome line. I'm really sad to see it go before we got to see Two-Bad Demolition, Spikorish LOD, and so many more. Can't they just, like, see if Target wants it, or something? I guess Honkeytonk Man and Flair can join the crew when they come out, but it just isn't the same.

Demolition will not happen with a WWE line because of the lawsuit they were part of. LOD, I am less sure of, but they could have been perfect for this line.

Goldberg
Ultimate Warrior
Kane
Piper
Are all $14.99 on Walmart.com right now in case anyone needs them.

I grabbed some extras for some kitbashing plus that Kane is just too awesome. Might make him the Horde Trooper of the line,just needs the logo.

Goldberg could used for LOD customs too.

There's also an hWo Macho Man available for $14,92 and a listing for Steamboat at $14.92, with other options on the page - Stephanie McMahon at $14.92 and Becky Lynch at $22.99. So yeah, probably time for us to be picking up stuff we missed for future customs. I already bought an extra Steph for cheap on eBay ($9.99, free shipping!) for an Io Shirai. hWo Macho is a great base for expanding that faction, of course.

Vince soured on Demolition ages ago for some reason, even before the lawsuit. They've been kinda wonky on who they punish for being a part of the lawsuit as well, so I doubt it's just that.

I think one of the LOD ended up on the lawsuit too, but I can't recall if it was Animal or someone from Hawk's family.

Anyway, with Walmart just now getting in two or three waves ago, it does make me wonder if they'll eventually get everything online. In the beginning I got almost every wave from Walmart's online store.

Of course, I'm also still waiting for my preorders from a year ago for the Andre wave, so who knows.

I don't collect wrestling figures at all anymore, and am not even big on MOTU Origins - but that Ricky Steamboat with the translucent yellow dragon blaster dragon was something I could not pass on. Just really cool. Honestly there were probably more figures I would have bought had I ever seen them - Mr. T would have been mine in a heartbeat. But the distribution on these was just so poor I almost never saw any at retail. There was some of Wave 1 at Wal Mart and then virtually nothing after that around here. It was such a fun idea
