Well I was up early Friday morning and checked as I have both of them saved on the app and they both showed in stock. After adding to cart I realized it was wanting to pickup from a local store so I switched to delivery thinking it'd be online delivery but it ended ip still being from a store and said it'd arrive that day.

It sat on preparing all day then I got an email saying it was delayed till Saturday and it was parallax that was delayed.

Well then it showed on the way and then delivered but it's just parallax, azbats it's now sitting as a semi separate order and it just shows "order placed" and arriving today as well.

This one will probably end up cancelled, I'm not at home to check parallax but I got the photo of the package on my porch they at least put it in a walmart plus bag.



One thing for everyone who's frustrated right now to remember is that action figures as a whole just reset this last week. Gold labels like these are not cross referenced with the regular figures so they don't always have a location. Stores that do have them are probably still struggling to get their mods fully set and pallets of freight ran and shelves filled. If these are in stock rhey may not be out or easily located so finding in store or pickup orders will be q challenge.

Be patient though, most all of these gold labels show up eventually and they are solid cases of 3 so if they get them it's just that single figure.

Well so much for next day delivery. Parallax now scheduled to be delivered this Thursday. At least he didn’t get cancelled. Now just hoping he didn’t get substituted. Forgot that box.

Stopped in after work at the store that cancelled my instore pickup this morning — there was one Az-Bats sitting right on a shelf. Must have been on a pallet when they went to pull it this morning.

A Walmart near me “has” Parallax — they cancelled the instore pickup within one minute and 30 seconds of me placing it.

Seems a little ridiculous but whatever.

Brickseek is a no go for my area. A local FB group was bragging about their finds and such from stores that Brickseek was showing Out of Stock, so no rhyme or reason there.

Back on the 9th I tried to place an order for AzBat that was showing available at the Wally down the street from me, and I guess I didn’t know about this substitution box. They tried to give me two of the 20 Future State Batmans they’re currently choking on, so I cancelled. I’ve not had any luck since. He has shown up at a couple of stores clear across town from me when I’m busy though, so yay!

So… Brickseek does work, but there is a catch.

If someone does an instore pickup, it reduces the number on Brickseek. If that order gets cancelled, the store still has them, but Brickseek doesn’t put the number back in, if that makes sense?

When I ordered Az-Bats for instore pickup, they cancelled and the number went to 0. Went later in the day and found some there, and Brickseek still showed 0.
