    Did a random Google search and got ToG Mer Man as a suggested pickup about 10 miles away. Went and they didn't have any but they had 1 left each of these two.

    Huh. He's showing as available for pickup for me from a search, but not going into the app.

    Guess I'm going to Walmart tonight.

    They're showing wave 3 via search too. I'm sure this is just Walmart's awful online inventory tracking, but I'm hoping they have SOMETHING I want when I get there.

    I just did an in-store pick up of Mer Man and told them substitutions are ok so let’s see what I get, lol.

    They are. He shows that in his review, and that's how it would have been in 88 if he had come out.

    At this point I’m just going to wait and see if those two Snake Men pop up on BBTS. The Snake Men are some of the hardest Origins to get. I can get Snake Face but I can’t get Squeeze. I missed out on Fangor and Lady Slither. At this point I might as well just stick to the four I have and say fuck the rest. (Hiss, Khan, Rattlor, & Tung Lashor)

    You are lucky you have Tung Lashor. Dude goes for crazy money now. Squeeze is showing up at Ross lately, I just found one 2 weeks ago for $3.99. BBTS still has him available for pre order as well so he'll probably come eventually.

    Side note: If anyone has an extra Tung Lashor and wants to move him at a reasonable cost, let me know!

    Just shipped my PoL with Mer-Man, was about to expire due to Mafex Carnage anyway so I’ll have a bit of a haul to enjoy soon!

    Surprisingly, despite saying he wasn’t available on his own listing, they substituted with Krang! I’m very happy with this outcome.

    For once, that’s not a bad substitution. I love TOG Krang and will sing his praises to anyone who will listen. If you don’t have him already, you’re in for a good time.

    As expected all mine had was a new case of Krang and wave 2. But it's a restock since I was here Monday!

    Just picked it up! It was Krang after all. Makes me think the listing for Mer-Man is actually pointing towards Krang in terms of what’s on the shelf.
