A lot of people don't even know these are out yet. I would hold until the rest of the set.

Edit: But toys are a whole new game for me. I don't know what drives the market.

I just went to a three story Walgreens with a toy section that was around 5 aisles. Nothing. And the worker stocking the area didn't even hear of The Walking Dead hah.

These Walgreens stores don't seem to be on the same page. Just today I witnessed a store manager, get into argument with an assistant store manager, over whether or not they were supposed to be moving the candy section.

While this toy seems to be fairly rare, I have to say that in person it is not a good looking toy. It's fairly obvious they took the mold of a Series 1 Rick and put it on the body of a Series 2 Rick. It kept me from buying the two I saw in a local Walgreens on Sunday. It may become super rare but I made a promise to myself not to buy toys because they may become rare but because I like them. Trust me, I have literally hundreds of toys so it was not an easy decision to make.

Good luck to those who are looking though, keep it up, you'll find them eventually.

Hold..unless you really only want to flip for $25-30.

Like someone else said, majority don't know about these. The masses who collect these will once they get the other series 4 figures and see the back of the packaging with it showing the "Exclusive" Rick. Hopefully by then, for flipping purposes, they're all sold out.

I think once the normal series 4 figures come out we'll see prices start going up. Everyone will be wanting to get the sold out Rick figure to complete the series collection.

I found 2 more today..so I now have 3 figures. There was only two on the shelf so figured I'd grab both. Keep one and hold the other 2 to sell later.

Btw I'd recommend just searching the store yourself and not taking the word of any employees. If they didn't put it out, they probably will have no clue. I asked one guy on the toy aisle and he said he hadn't seen or heard of any or he would've bought them. While talking I glanced and spotted 1 on a peg. He saw it and said "ah wow, didn't know we had those"...so if they say they don't have any or don't know, don't trust them lol

Yeah I suppose you're right. Series 2 ricks are averaging around 50 bucks now

Walgreens had a coupon in the Sunday paper in some regions for 15% off your purchase.

Just went to my Walgreen and picked two up for a little over 25$. Be sure to check the Halloween section that their putting up because this is where I found mine after asking a worker, but it seemed as though they had just put them out. I dont usually buy these, so im just wondering if I should buy them out? They seem to have 2 of every character.

Well I've picked up 2 ricks, a Carl, and a Riot Gear zombies from walgreens today at 12.99 each, But then...I went to Gamestop and found a Rick Grimes from series 2 marked down from 12.99 to 2.99. Talk about a steal. I also picked up a "Well Zombie" and a "Shane" for 2.99 each. So I went from not owning any, to owning 7 in one day. haha. I'm still trying to figure out whether to sell or keep, but I only spent 60$ so i may just hold out and see what happens.

The Rick figure is exclusive to only Walgreens. All the other characters in the Series 4 release are sold in multiple stores like the previous series.

the Rick Grimes Walgreens figure isn't selling too hot on the old ebay, not worth it for $5 flip at the moment, last week there was some money to be made maybe.

I would expect prices to get a bump when season 4 starts up in a few weeks.
