ROC Figures at Walmart
« on: June 26, 2009, 07:18:11 PM »

SOmeone I trust has posted a sighting on another board of ROC figs and vehicles at the Walmart at Jane/Hwy 7 in Toronto (Vaughn).  Little to far for me to check out, but I trust the sighting.

Apparently in Quebec as well.

But are they pulling them off the pegs?

I checked all the local Wal-Marts this morning and nothing.

Someone from the Argyle location said he would not be putting them out until July 10 as he did not want to pay the fine....I told him the release date has been moved up the 4th (not sure if that mattered to him though).

I checked with Hasbro and they did say yes.  On the phone, their system shows June.  This applies to Canada too as per the rep.

TRU PCs are apparently showing 07/04 and I've heard 07/05.

I'm almost tempted to make the 2 hour drive - if I knew I could count on them still being there AND being able to purchase them.....

Only a week to go.....unless the retailers stick the 11th release date.

Patience, they will be slowly showing up over the coarse of the next few weeks and there will be plenty to go around.

Add Agincourt Walmart (Kennedy/Sheppard) to the list.  They had the same as Jane/Hwy7 this morning.  Back wall of the toy section.

Do you guys reckon that Loblaw's Superstore will stock these? Here in London I have not seen any Joes over the last year at all but lots of movie tie-ins like Indy and Wolverine.
