My local Target had gotten in 3 more boxes of NECA stuff (two large, one tiny), which brought the total number to about 9 boxes of NECA over the last two months, sitting in the back. Managed to help with the newest three that came in to get those out with the main electronics guy. There's a ton of NEW product that just isn't hitting the shelf... Though admittedly the amount they have now is ludicrous, and apparently they're supposed to have an 8 foot section when it's just 4 foot.

I saw him a month or two ago at a Walmart... but it was on an endcap in the electronics section that had been converted to a mini-NECA section apart from the main NECA area

I was looking for NECA Movie Turtles from the 1st movie at the time... but have since given up on finding them

Only the color version. Saw him a bunch during Haulathon. Still waiting on that B&W figure to show up anywhere. Got a BBTS pre-order, so just gotta be patient.

Thanks. I've only ever seen Frank's monster--and lots of him.

Is there a comparison between the 2 somewhere? I don't really notice much of a difference. I have neither btw.

I haven't seen any comparison pics, but mine own eyes can see the brownish, pinkish shades on the color version. I have monochrome Frank and Wolf Man, and if I put the color Mummy in with them, it would be very noticeable. It's definitely more of a subtle difference than the other two, that's for sure.

Thanks. I got color Wolf Man at a massive discount, but could go either way with Mummy.

Walmart got a shipper case of Mummy when the April 2-packs and single packs were shipping out. So definitely poke around endcaps and stuff at your local Walmart.

Let me rephrase that:

I see color Mummy a TON at Targets around me.

Walmart is usually f***ing useless for toys, especially NECA.
