    Bah, I was hoping for SS 86 or RED reveals. WFC doesn't feel like it has many surprises left.

    I mean, part III sounds like there will be lots of surprises.

    Here's hoping, It's not like we haven't got great figures in WFC but I'm a bit more interested in seeing more of the RED And SS 86 line.

    Hopefully this is Netflix wave 2 or SS86.

    I don't know if you know what the rumours and leaks are for part III, but let's just say that personally it is by far my most antisipated line in, let's say, 25 years ;) .

    As I said in another thread, this is be another likely Clusterfrick thanks to the Walmart. They can\'t even keep scalper-bots from killing pre-orders, I have zero faith that this will be anything but a disaster.

    I'd love them to do a Netflix Optimus with the eye scar.

    Interesting. I'm guessing Walmart was originally planning on having it's own booth at Comic Con.

    So how likely will it be that the average person can actually purchase these Walmart exclusives? Somewhere between snowball's chance in hell, and marrying your favorite celebrity? Lightning striking the same place twice? Miracles confirmed by the Catholic church?

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but it doesn’t say anything regarding studio series, correct? Maybe they realize that we’ve already got all that we need from leaks lol

    Everybody overanalyzing and hyping when it'll likely be a re-up of the RED announcement and the next batch of Netflix figures.

    The Netflix stuff is plentiful save for a few of the more popular characters.

    People hear "exclusive" and think limited run, but Walmart has tons of toys that are exclusive to them yet plentiful. They carry a whole line of Blippi stuff you can't find anywhere, they've got exclusive sublines of Paw Patrol, plenty of Ryan's World and PJ Masks...

    And this isn't hard to find in the slightest. It's just only at Walmart.

    In my brain I just assumed it would be the Netflix series or Earthrise. Never considered it might be part 3.

    More likely anything SS is being reserved for SDCC.

    I buy Marvel Legends too, and I've yet to encounter a Walmart ML exclusive at retail where I live EVER, and buying online from Walmart has been incredibly difficult (Binary Carol was the only one I managed "easily," they came through on Loki/Corvus but only after a looong wait).

    So no, I'm not overanalyzing shit.

    lol I preordered Hotlink in February and it's been listed as "delayed" since April, but sure, more preorders, why not.

    You're comparing exclusive figures to entire exclusive lines.

    Also, I didn't quote you about overanalyzing, but hey if you want to tell on yourself. I know the forums tend to assume things and then get angry about the assumptions.

    I wish I could get excited bit after the Gigawatt disaster. Meh, it'll be nice to see Deepcover, but I won't even bother trying to see until after.

    Inb4 the amusingly thin-skinned scalpers show up to defend themselves.
