Hey all. Just a heads up - I spotted two deluxe Panthros at Ross today. Unfortunately, I missed out on a Slithe. However, I believe that Deluxe Panthro was only shipping with Deluxe Slithe (am I right?).

So I guess that'd mean Slithe will start showing up at the discount chains.

Nice... there is a Ross literally blocks away from me, but every time I go there they have the same thundercats figures that they haven't been able to sell in weeks.

Anyone know when they get new stock?

I also humbly would beg anyone that is able to get an extra to help me out. I will pay a fair price. Just sayin' ;-)

I don't have a Ross in any of the states around here, so if somebody finds a few extra, I'd be interested in one too. Thanks.

I'm checking my local TJ Maxx and Marshall's every couple of days. I guess I'll have to add Ross to my list of regular stops. I'll post in BST if I find any extras =o)

No, he shipped in the case with Lion-0 and Mumm-ra also.

Oh, I see. Well, there was a deluxe Mumm-Ra there also. No sign of a deluxe Lion-O. In any case, I don't believe that deluxe Panthro ever showed up at retail (not that many want him anyhow).

PLEASE DONATE the Deluxe Slithe to a very worthwhile cause.....my collection
Unbelievable how the LJN Sslithe is the lowest MOC figure and now the reboot is impossible to get. Well impossible in the UK

I've never even seen any of the deluxe figures at Ross/TJ Maxx/Marshalls in LA. Only random 6in ($5.99), thundertanks(12.99) and tower of omens ($15.99). How much are the deluxe figures going for, and where are you finding them?

At my Ross, there is one decently sized wall for bigger toys and one endcap where all the action figures go. I found them on the endcap. I went back there today and there was still the two Panthros and the Mumm-Ra on the endcap but there was now another Panthro on the wall area. I got excited again hoping it could mean a Slithe was there but, alas, twas not to be today.

On, and they were 4.99.

Guys I know it may seem like being pushy but don't be afraid to ask the employees if they have more figures or cases of figures in the back. sometimes they can be really helpful. Probably only helpful if you see at least 1 figure on the shelf. Where there's 1 there could be more! They usually don't have the space at these discount stores to put out entire cases at once.

The stores around here have plenty of space. Went to Ross and found wave 1 deluxe Lion-o and Mumm Ra. Asked a clerk if they had more in the back and she said, no they put out everything they get. Went to TJ Maxx and found nothing, asked a clerk(who was very rude) and he said the same thing, they put it all out when they get it.

I think it was the cases arriving at Ross are a revised assortment with out slithe. Yesterday my girl found wave 2 deluxe lion-o and Mumm Ra(which is a figure&package variant). Since these cases have 3 figure in it, my guess is its wave 2 panthro, lion-o, and mumm ra. Check out the deluxe mumm ra variant thread.

Yeah, could be. Still, its hopeful that Panthro at least showed up. Its likely Slithe will eventually.

I agree. I think those stores are getting the Panthro, Lion-0, Mumm-ra Case.

Case ratios are why the line failed. What retailer in their right mind would order a new case of toys when they have 20 figures on their shelf that aren't moving because they are a figure that is forced on them that nobody wants?

Agreed. Their first mistake was the mummy mumm-ra. He is still pegg warming at most stores that have any left. Wasn't there just 1 panthro and 1 cheetara per case? Insane.

Oh, and to add that to buy a Storm Charger they had to buy it with a Thundertank. Well, the stores already had a bazillion thundertanks collecting dust, why would they want more?

No Wave 2 stuff in any of my local Marshalls, Ross's, or TJ Maxx's yet but Wave 1 stuff does keep showing up.

Yesterday the Marshall's by my house got some new stock. They received 4 Towers in minty boxes and priced them at $15.99 each. Even at that price I doubt they will sell. If it comes down to $8 or so I'll pick them up for all the clear Tygras.

There was also a Grune but it was not the Thundercat emblem variant so I passed on it to give someone else a chance.

Found a Deluxe Grune and Lion-O at Ross for $4.99. I left them there. Also saw a Lion-O ThunderRacer for $5.49 and Wiley-Kit and Wiley-Kat for $3.99. Left everything there for someone who doesn't already have them.

The lack of eBay auctions for this figure tells me that they have not hit Ross either.

How many different case assortments did they offer for this series?

I thought there was only 1 assortment until I found the mumm ra variant. That's 2 case assortments, one with slithe and one with mumm ra. Don't know if there's any other revisions, but I'm geussing those are the only 2 case assortments.

It is a discount retailer. Mainly clothes, but they have a toy section with discount toys. Just like TJ Maxx or Marshall's.

Hi Guys,

I have been watching eBay like a madman searching,hoping and praying for a Deluxe Slithe to be listed with not even a sniff, is this figure a figment of my imagination or has anybody out there got one?

They WILL pop up ay Ross, TJ Maxx or Marshalls.

Question is when. I am willing to bet they will show up at the same time as Mumm-ra's Storm Charger as well.

Nope

6" Tygra showed up in abundance at Marshall's

Well I stopped by both Marshalls and Ross today after not having done so in a month or so. Marshalls still had the same 3 Thundertanks sitting on the shelf at $10 a piece, so nothing new there. BUT when I went to Ross I found that they had a bunch of Series 1 6", a 6" Cheetara (which I grabbed), an Armor of Omens, and most importantly 2 Series two 4" Tygras.

The reason I say most importantly the two 4" Tygras is because hopefully this means some series two cases are making there way to these stores.

What distinguishes a series 1 from a series 2

And why does it matter that series 2 was there

I have found a bunch of those Tygras previously as well.

Series 2 Figures have Black and Red Snap Tags and show the Wave 2 figures on the back of the package. Later shipped Series 2 figures came packaged with a trading card.

It matters because at least in my neck of the woods, the few items stores like Ross has received have all been series 1 figures. This is the first of series 2 I have seen there which I am hoping means the warehouses which have / had series 2 cases sitting there are finally starting to liquidate them and "perhaps" the cases containing Slythe are on their way.
