I've only seen a Starlight at one Walmart, no other Walmart has gotten their exclusives in. One Walmart did finally convert the ever-full arcade cabinet section into the proper collector area though, so that was nice to see. They're still empty but at least they have the space for figures now.

Found just Homelander at a Nashua, NH Walmart on Friday. There were a few of him, and empty NECA display boxes that could have been Starlight or Frankenstein's Monster, there were no shelf tags for the figures.

Wow, Wolfman looks excellent! Crap, I wanted the black and white versions, but now I'm tempted to just buy the colored figures just to get them sooner.

wasn't sure where to post this, i manage to find the grapnel gun prop from batman animated. such a cool stoke of luck as i never found the '89 batarang at my stores. before i bought i scan it and was a bit surprised at the price like dang $30 bucks, i wasn't sure if that's the real price or a price walmart put at random. i went back and forth if i should get it or not , so after a few minutes i bought it.

for now i'll hold on to it and see if i can find another walmart that may have one a bit cheaper or online then i'll return the other for a refund.

It is definitely $30.

Pulled the trigger on this old Dracula to go on the game shelf. He’s really nice! Much better articulation than I thought he’d have.

Wow, Wolfman looks great. I wasn't expecting all the Larry Talbot pieces! Guess I'll have to get two to display both ways.

I feel like I constantly have to make this argument to Star Wars collectors, but if you enjoy these lines, don't try to wait for clearance. If the lines aren't profitable, they won't produce any more. I get that this stuff can be expensive sometimes, but clearance shopping is shortsighted if you want these to continue.

i get what you mean, i honest expected this to be a bit cheaper like $20 bucks seeing how small it is, but you're right.

That's the approach I take to the figure lines. This prop feels more like a one-off, but at the end of the day, if something isn't worth the price to you then don't buy it. I was kind of interested in this particular prop, but the price and lack of sound effects and a proper stand turned me off. It is the kind of thing I would consider if priced cheaper, but I can also live without.
