I have been all over the island and I can’t find Wave 9, Cap, or End Game at this point. Hoping it was just a bad week. 

Really?? Wave 9 is the one thing that I can't stop seeing. All the Duane Reade's that I've gone to seem to have an abundance of them.

Is there a way to contact walgreens customer service to find out who has these? Also, do the movie minimates and animated share the same wic number (barcode)?

One's labeled as movie Minimates and the other one is comic.

Managed to get the Endgame Minimate wave and put together my own customs. Love the wave which are always tough to get in the UK. Thanos is Really cool. Tell me what you think of my Thor and slightly modified Cap.

Both are looking good and pretty similar to what I wanted to do. Which beard is that on Thor?

Just saw a posting on ebay for an Endgame set. The seller wants $110.

There’s another set that has a top bid of $61.00 + $11.99 shipping with 2 and a half days left.

This is just disgusting. If Walgreens and DST could be more transparent on distribution I feel like people wouldn’t be able to get away with this nonsense.

I agree. I mean I am happy to see these showing up on eBay, that means more ppl are finding them. But these prices are not cool.

That's crazy. Based on some of yesterday's sales I bet it's going to sell at that price too. I managed to grab a set for $55 which I'm happy with. Would have come out to $59 including shipping to Canada if I bought from Luke's if/once he gets these in stock.

What sort of transparency are you looking for? Looks like Walgreens has answered a direct question with a fairly direct answer, but I'm not sure how many actually think to do that. As for us, DST has NO information on when they will make it to stores. Once we ship to them, they have their own internal distribution system we are not privy to. 

People will always pay what they want to pay, and it sounds like some are willing to pay a 50% markup to save themselves the search/wait. A 150% markup seems excessive, but I don't think greater transparency would change that. Only figures in stores will change that, and it sounds like that will happen very soon.

Hi Zach:

Understand this place hasn’t been extremely friendly lately but my post wasn’t meant to be taken as an attack. This is exactly the transparency I want. I want to be told the information in that tweet which I expect from Walgreens’ CSR team as I have worked with them in the past. Previously we have been getting vague answers instead of the reps using the internal coms sources to give us this kind of answer. Also, that stinks they don’t give you more of an idea on the distribution. 

People can pay what they want to but why I think transparency factors in is that people may feel like “they don’t have a choice” because they don’t know that actually it isn’t that you missed out it’s just that the figures actually aren’t out. Similar to how you gave me a heads up that Tombstone wasn’t out yet.

Oh, and my post wasn't meant to be a counter attack! I wasn't sure what kind of transparency you were looking for, as this particular situation doesn't allow for much. Glad they gave you some concrete info.

That said, I think most people KNOW they have NOT missed them when they look online and only see a few for sale. I assume they simply don't want to miss out in the FUTURE, or simply cannot wait, which is why they're pulling the trigger now. But maybe I'm wrong. 

If you mean Hammerhead, then yes, he is not out yet. Later in 2019. I'd love a Tombstone! Character or pizza.

@DSTZach Right on cue.

NYC has stock! Just got the Thanos/IM & Ronin/BW

Good luck everyone!

Were those my cues? (Firesign Theatre reference.)

Hooray! I need to check the Danbury CT area now!

Eventually it'll be Atlanta's turn. Eventually. But now I know it's on this coast which counts for something.

I don't get why they would. DST is a business that supplies product to another business, once the transaction is done, why would DST (from a businesses prospective) care how they get distributed. I know DST seems to care a bit more (or seems to with Zach constantly talking to us) but still doesn't make any sense to give follow ups on distribution

Thanks, I used the beard from the Minimates Lord of the Rings line. Used Gandalf the White that had broken anyway so cut the beard from the hair as they're bigger than the Marvel ones and glued the beard to the Infinity War Thor head and painted it. The hair was a from the Jessica Jones netflix 4 pack Patsy Walker. I wanted to save the new Thor head from the Endgame line for my IW Thor Custom.

Still going to customise further with Thor to make him fatter and maybe try and paint a braid on and I've already made Barton look more like Endgame Ronin by shaving the hair down on the sides.

Also got the set posted from Indiana to the UK. It usually takes months before these come over here so bought them online for too much money but was hyped for the film so can feel bad about it later.
