I found 4 Leos, 1 Don and 1 Raph at my store in the Midwest today. Don has minor bubble dent, Raph has a majorly smashed bubble and bent card like someone got it damaged in shipping and returned it. Got em anyway (got 2 Leo). They were stocked near the back of the figure aisle sort of across from the MOTU only further back past Star Wars.

If anyone sees this and for some reason has a Mike to trade for a Leo please DM.

I've been trying to get these for weeks. It is impossible to find a Leo or Don around here. Whenever they have some in stock it's only one and they are gone by the time I arrive at the store. Hopefully they will be in stock soon

I'm not sure why these are so hard to find. Either Walmart is just doing a horrid job stocking these, which is very possible or people are just extra dumb during the COVID seasons and buying up all the stock to sell as scalpers, which I feel like they didn't do for playmates figures just a couple of years ago. I thought it was just NECA that was hard to find.

It's hard to find them in the UK as well - haven't seen them in Asda but I hope they come out soon.

That is absolutely happening and Walmart allows it to happen too. I see Leo on the Walmart website being sold by a scalper. That person constantly has one in stock for $40. I refuse to pay that.

This morning the Walmart website showed there was a Leo in stock near me. There were none but they did have a party wagon! I already gave up on that one to be honest. So I'm happy I was lucky enough to find it. The Walmart website and Brickseek don't seem to be very accurate.

Both.

Though at least I doubt any wannabe scalpers in my area can get them either. (How sad for them! lol) I've looked at the price stickers and haven't seen any spot where I could have just missed it, so I think my store is just really, really bad as usual.

I've even been checking the collectables area, because (though it might almost sorta make sense in this case) my store is dumb like that sometimes. (No really, someone this summer once stocked Baby Shark theme toy vacuum cleaners in the vacuum aisle.)

I found Donatello in a store last ditch effort after I pretty much gave up hope finding anything I was looking for when there in the toy aisle 2 of them just sitting on the peg.

I bought both of them, traded one for Leonardo. And had a deal for Michelangelo and Raphael but due to a misunderstanding I wound up with another Donatello.

Luckily later in the day I got a message about someone wanting to trade my Donatello for Michelangelo. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have all 4 and can work on finding the Party Wagon. I was hyped for the blimp too until I saw the2014 glider Playmates phoning it in as normal

I forget where I saw it but I read they were touting a 9/1 release. So I went on a hunt last night. Sure enough 2 of the 3 walmarts I checked had pallets of the new toys to stock overnight sitting out and had the TMNT boxes on them. I saw 3 "cases" each of Mike and Raph and 1 "case" of Leo. I put case in quotes because each case only holds 2 figures. I yoinked them off the pallets and opened them in an aisle and got what I wanted!

I am going to check some more today but might be too late as it will be later.

I now have an extra Leo I could trade someone, I need another Don to open.

Any idea if that includes the van? That’s the only thing I want.

I just found another post on Facebook from yesterday that says "tomorrow" and it only mentions the figures. (The original thing I saw explicitly said 9/1 but I think it was also just talking figures)

I found the Turtle Van earlier this morning before work. They only had 1 and the box was a bit beat up but that’s ok. They also had 1 Mike and 4 of the Leo vs Rocksteady Packs but I passed….already have the TRU Classic Collection of the 4 Turtles.

What’s interesting here is that this Walmart was one where I found via the app that they had 1 available for store pickup which I did but it was canceled a few hours late. And it didn’t show in stock but they showed Mike with 1 left so I checked and found the van. Worth checking if you see the Turtles in stock online at a particular location.

These are from a third party though, at those prices. Not the 12 bucks that WM sells them for.

I've been dying to get my hands on the party wagon for a while now with nothing in site.

Sweet. I'm still hunting down that van and really don't want to pay the ebay prices.

I finally got my hands on a Leo. All I need now is a Donatello and I'll have the complete set.

Any news on more releases from the classic line? Having them on the original cards is pretty cool honestly. I just hope that if they release more they will look better than those 6 figure sets released earlier this year.

Not yet, but I have a feeling that Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady, and the Foot Soldier on their original cards will be on Walmart pegs again soon.
