Yea, When it said they were going live on the 20th I assumed that the sister exclusive site, Walmart, Gamestop, etc. would start selling them on that day. Walmart is always late on stuff though... I guess maybe after the con they may make an appearance on the site. Sucks they're online only.

Multiple funko collectors have called into Walmart's online customer service and they have zero answers as to why aquaman is up but Baxter and the other 2 are not. Baxter hasn't gone live and you haven't missed him so take heart he will be coming we just don't know when. I have been refreshing every 5 minutes for almost the past 24 hours. Even had my wife drive me to gamestop and barnes and noble earlier so I could get my other pops and so I wouldn't miss Baxter if he did pop up on the website. I have 5 down Walmarts in a 20 mile radius and none of them got them in. I also had family members in other smaller towns check their walmarts and nothing so I am going to assume that funko's website is correct in saying that these are online only.

What??! How many did they put in stock!!?? Don't they realize the demand? Funko should just sell them in-store at Hot Topic.

Took less than 8 minutes and half of the time was people not realizing it was up. Snagged one but I have been refreshing non stop since all these pops started going live a day and a half ago.

Scalpers are the problem, not the companies producing/selling.

Unless of course they don't put a limit on these, in which case they are somewhat at fault for not taking scalper prevention into consideration. But who can blame them? We're talking about Wal-mart, here. They're just out to make a return on their investment.

There is no limit. On the Funko sub-reddit, some guy bought six to ensure "a mint box".

I missed out because I had forgotten my stupid login and after I got everything squared away...it was gone and removed from my cart. In all honesty, it was probably for the best because I've been trying to cut down on Funko POPs. However he is pretty cool and I hope many of the actual fans managed to score one before they were completely sold out. I did put in for an e-mail notification in the off chance it gets replenished, but I'm not holding my breath.

Pretty bummed this one didn't get a Hot Topic release because I've been successful with them both online and in store when it comes to SDCC releases.

Thanks a lot. Now I want a mcrib.

Just a heads up Funko has been marking which exclusives are sold out almost as soon as they are gone. They have yet to mark Baxter as sold out and the funko site still links to the Walmart listing

Still pissed I missed Baxter. I have been checking a couple times a day every day and still managed to miss it. I freaking hate Walmart enough as it is, but between this and Playmates sticking it to us with the SDCC Usagi I'm pretty annoyed.

If I happen to see him come back in stock I'll update the thread as well.
