Oh, how Exclusive toys haunt toy collectors, and Walmart Exclusives, in particular. You'd think that with at least 14 Walmarts within an hours driving distance of me, I wouldn't have such a hard time finding the freaking exclusives. And with Star Wars I didn't. I found Schloads of the Star Wars Walmart Exclusives at the one across the highway from where I work, the closest one to my home. Separation of the Twins sets? Those things PEGWARMED when they were first released (and then again when they were re-released last year). Betrayal at Saleucami? Lots of them. The last 5 figures of The Saga Collection? Tons and Tons and Tons of them!
DCUC Exclusives? Not a chance. Gotham City 5 Pack? No Way. Metallo wave? Hell no! Imperiex wave? Hell, yes?
I've been stalking that Walmart nearest me, every day for 3 weeks, because the DCUC pegs were empty, and surely they would get new figures in. At the 3 week mark, there suddenly appeared on the pegs a lone Killer Moth, one which I assume had gotten lost in the renovation of the store, hence the long empty pegs. I bought it, thinking they would order more figures and get Imperiex. yeah, the next day the 3 DCUC pegs were gone. That was about a week and a half ago. I stopped checking every day, but had to go in this evening to get milk and nearly had a heart attack when I saw Forager and Man-Bat staring at me from 2 full pegs of figures.
IMPERIEX IS MINE!
I honestly thought this would never happen, and least of all at that store. So far as I can see, without opening them, they look awesome, Imperiex and Batman and Forager in particular. Beast Boy looks to be the most boring, while I expected that of Robot Man, but hey, he's a robot with a human brain, and robots are always cool.
Excuse me while I go open and play with them...
