I’d love to see animated-style versions of Doc Ock and Vulture, particularly. They had some wonderful costumes in the show. I believe Vulture’s costume was also in the comics at that time, but not Doc Ock’s.

I also really, really want a classic Jack O’Lantern. I still have the Toy Biz one from nearly 2 years ago in my display (along with Man-Wolf).

I'm still hoping they'll crank out one more wave for this

1. Spider-Man (Whatever variant they come up with)
2. Felicia Hardy (Animated)
3. Kraven
4. Chameleon (Animated)
5. Doc Ock (Animated)
6. Vulture (Animated)

So there's a VHS 2-pack of symbiote Spidey and Carnage, which I'm assuming will be cel-shaded. For the most part, the cel-shaded Spider-Man figures have been SUPER accurate to the actual show (Spider-Man himself and Venom), so I'm expecting the same for Carnage.

The only thing worrying me is that the artwork seems to be depicting that Monster Venom wave Carnage.

MCUCollector24 posted last night that the Walmart Lizard was showing up in-stock for shipping last night. I checked at the time and can confirm that it was, but it isn't showing in stock today. Hopefully this means they will be fulfilling pre-orders soon.

Knowing Walmart, the in stock orders will ship before the preorders, which won’t ship at all. And then it’ll be sold out for four months, and then come back in stock and stay there for two years. That seems to be the Walmart way.

Almost pulled the trigger on the in-stock orders last night but decided to be patient for my preorder. Hopefully it doesn't work against me!

Also, most stores won’t get any stock, some will get just one case of two, and then a random Walmart in Idaho will get 10,000 units and discount them to a nickel after less than a week.

Could be!

I’m just recounting the trend I’ve generally seen with Walmart exclusives. I was thinking they’d gotten better but my recent experiences with the DC Multiverse Knightfall Batman and Parallax were pretty bad.

Doctor Strange has been popping up at actual Wal*Mart stores. Who knows anymore.

Do these figures scale well with the old Spider-Man movie figures? I want to get JJJ and Sandman to go with my Spider-Man 2 Spidey figure.

The old movie JJJ figure had very limited articulation, and movie Sandman was rather small, not to mention both are rather expensive nowadays.
