    He got them today. Walgreen's in his area were apparently restocking and he got lucky.

    Actually, the Walgreens in my area are inconsistent. Some rarely get new stock, some ....half of the time. Then there's one that gets restocked fairly frequently. I just happened to get in one where the manager didn't like scalpers. He kept the shipper in the back. And he even let me go into the back to look at the rest of them :D  He had sold 3 already. 1 to a buddy of mine, and 2 to someone else. He held another 2 for me, but then as I got there, another friend called, so I picked up another for him too. There were two left and I didn't have enough to pick up another :(  Sorry guys....

    And yeah, several managers I've talked to....they all say this guy disappears faster than a man who just won the lottery.

    People just need to be patient with Agent Venom. It is quite stupid that he is Walgreens exclusive, but come on. They're shipping him 8 per case. In a month or so, they'll have him in stock nearly 24/7.

    Please do NOT buy into scalper crap. Figures that are 2 per case generally go for under $15 online, so an 8 per case figure should most certainly not go for more that retail price regardless of exclusivity or being "hard to find" (meaning their stores/warehouse broke street date which is officially 9/1/14). Being patient and persistent pays off! I checked my TRU for the X-Men ML figures twice a week every week for two months and in that time I picked up Carnage, Black Cat, AND got a free Bleeding Edge Iron Man!

    I don't think anyone wants to pay the scalper prices. I sure as hell don't.

    Except that each will probably only get one shipment with scalpers buying a fair amount. I think that even at 8 per case this guy is gonna be a bitch to find.

    I got you beat. I checked five Walgreen's and didn't find shit either.

    The only "good" thing is that since it's Walgreen's there's practically one on every corner.

    Yeah, I've been walking all around the stores checking for them. I'm sick of seeing all the damn Game of Thrones figures.

    I didn't notice this before, but on the Walgreen's website it says that the Agent Venom figure won't be available in stores until 9/1. Obviously some stores have put him out already but is it possible that this guy has a street-date?

    Tonight I bought the four X-Men figures to build the BAF Jubilee. Its funny, I previously only wanted the Magneto from this wave but I saw that they also had the Storm figure and I knew if I passed on her I might not find her again like I did with Gamora from the Groot wave (still haven't found her either) and since Storm basically comes with 75% of Jubilee anyway, I thought fuck it and got them all.
