Use this thread to post what you find, and where! Let your fellow collectors know what's up. Minor local discussion is ok, but try to keep it focused on the toys and finding them locally.

I live in a NW suburb of Houston called Cypress, Texas.

Walmart: Nothing in stores or online.
Target: Nothing in stores or online.
Toys 'R Us: Nothing in store and website says all Thundercats product is out of stock.

Looks like another toy rollout has become a dud.

I was able to finally make an order on the Kmart web site. After reading some other peoples posts i though it would be canceled for sure, however a confirmation email said all 10 figures were shipped and should arrive 8/4. We will see

Still no luck on TRU Walmart or Target...

Good luck to you Riono. Hope you actually get what you ordered. Still nothing around here in Houston or the Katy area which is good for me right now as I don't have any money until next pay day which is when I hope that the new Thundercat toys start showing up. In the mean time I have a set of the first wave of 4" inch figures pre ordered on BBTS. Could really use some "Sight Beyond Sight" right about now lol.

No luck In Houston at:
walmart at spring branch by the IMAX
Target on 290 and hollister
TRU at bunker hill memorial city
TRU in the woodlands
Bedrock city comics will not be getting any at any location. However, they do have one more non-sdcc mezco lion o figure if you are looking for one to buy. This was at the Washington ave location.
Good luck everyone.

Not a good deal at all. Don't pay $40. That figure is going to hit TRU soon and it's on their website right now for $25.

Hey guys, for anyone who doesn't know about the Toy Show coming up I have made a new thread in the Collections area:
http://www.thundercats.ws/gulf-coast...les-show-2792/
Also, no Thundercats in Pasadena and no spots for them anywhere. I wish I could get out to the Woodlands, LOL

Hey guys, the Allen TRU has EEEEVVVERRRYTHIIING. Except the Claw Shield and Tower of Omens playset (but I don't think anyone has the playset yet).

I already got the Classics from TRU.com, but while I was at the Allen TRU I picked up all 3 6 inch figs, the Thundertank, Grune, the 4 inch figs of Lion-O, Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, and Mumm-Ra and that's it for now.

Just need the Lizard Cannon and Wily Kit and Kat and I'll be set. They did have Wily Kat, but not Wily Kit so I decided to wait until I saw them both.

Haha, yes exactly. That, and with everything else I was buying I really needed an excuse NOT to buy something, you know?

I'm lucky the girlfriend didn't have a heart attack when I came home.

Man, I am beginning to think the best bet is to just order online now. i went to Wal Mart today and asked the guy stocking, "hey, have you started to see Thundercats show up?" His reply, "That's not a real toyline they had those years ago" I was like, wow, someone should tell bandai that. I guess the only reason I haven't purchased online yet, is because I want that instant gratification. ah well......... :S

Did you actually say that there was supposed to be a new toyline out?

Did this employee think you were so stupid that you wouldn't know it was a toyline from the 80's?

Like you fell asleep in 1987 and just woke up today or something? What a jerky thing to say.

Yeah, sadly I had to say that there was a toy line coming out. The guy was a complete dolt. He talked to me like I was an idiot for even asking.

I had to go back that day to get some school supplies for my kids, and he was still there. My wife was asking me questions about some of the things we need and they guy came up to us and asked if we needed help finding anything. I looked at my wife and I was "don't ask him, whatever you do........chances are it's not on the market yet, what ever it is." She thought I was kidding. I left her to check out some of the isle a cart couldn't fit through. She came bacck a few minutes later and said " I asked him were the composition books were, because he was holding 2 of them in his hands to put them up, and he said they don't sell them there." Needless to say, we are going to a different wal-mart from now on. :S

Raiden, which Walmart did you go to? We need locations! lol

Just letting everyone know, more Toys R Us stores are getting them in.

The Toys R Us in Dallas on Park Lane has them, the Allen Toys R Us still has a bunch, and the Irving Toys R Us has EVERYTHING (except the Tower of Omens).

I wish there was a way to call one Walmart and ask about the figures and get them to look up and see if they were at any other Walmart, but apparently they either can't or don't know how to do that.

I went by the walmart at austin highway and thundercats was not part of the reset. I asked one of the ladies working there if they were gonna carry them and she kinda flipped out a little. She said she was up all night doing the reset and if they aren't there they ain't carrying them so don't ask haha. She told me to come back after Christmas.

Where I live (the Dallas area, Garland specifically) all of the TRU's have Thundercats in that I know of.

I went to a Walmart in Garland and they had everything Thundercats related as well, including a price tag for the playset ($40) but they didn't actually have the playset unfortunately.

Actually at WM the 4 inch figures are $6.97 so a dollar less than TRU.

Everything at WM is MUCH less than TRU.

Yea, I ended up taking what I bought back to TRU and ended up saving $16 by buying them at Wal Mart. ~ Which bought my kids some more 4" figures at Wal Mart!
