I found two Exclusive Rick Grimes figures this afternoon at my near by Walgreens. I purchased, put them in a box and will forget about them for a while.

So tonight the wife asks me if I want to go to Walgreen's so she can pick up some stuff and I say 'not really'. But then I remembered this topic and changed my mind. Lo and behold, I picked one up!!! Totally stoked. My wife shakes her head and goes on about her business. She has absolutely no want to know about comics, figures or baseball cards. So I guess my mistresses are collectibles. Don't tell anyone!

1/3. Finally found one today after being shut out at the other two local Walgreens the last couple of days. Pretty cool figure. Can't wait for the season to start!

Lol, I feel you. My wife calls it comic'ing which i'm pretty sure isn't even a word. She always see's through my lies when i jump to run an errand thinking about it's location and proximity to a comic shop or the time it takes me to run said errand.

I sure hope so. I went from not owning any to owning 7 in one day. haha. I bought 2 ricks, a Riot Gear Zombie, and a Carl for about 50$ at walgreens. Then I went to gamestop and managed to find A Rick, Shane, and "Well Zombie" from Series 2 that just so happen to be marked down to 2.99 each. lol.

I have been to every Walgreens in the area and not a one.

Either my stores didn't put them out yet or the local walgreen distributor is a junkie. Lol

Are you guys finding these in the toy section or the Halloween section. I have been checking both.

Some stores may choose not to do displays, some will stock near the toys and some near the Halloween section. The discretion is solely up to the individual store, apparently, as space available allows.

A stocker pulled 3 figures from the back ("..all we have."), two of them were Ricks. Took both

Comic'ing is actually a good word for it!

I've tried to pull the 'got an errand' trick and the wife wanted to go. DAMN! I feel like a kid sometimes trying to get away with going to the LCS when in all actuality, I should be able to go anytime I damn well please because it's money I earned. Riiiiiiiggghht. Did I mention I'm a genius? Or maybe I'm just an 'idiot savant'. Wife would go with the first word in 'idiot savant'.

Thank you. During my regular run to Walgreens for Magnum XL condoms and a handle of Vodka I was able to find some exclusive Rick Grimes figures. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.

Just bought 6 figures from my LCS. Looking at SPAWN.COM...the figure isn't exclusive solely to Walgreens! You can check out any Hastings stores should you have any around your area. If you're in Canada...if your LCS uses Grosnor Distribution...they should have some available.

SPAWN.COM >> TOYS >> MOVIES AND TV >> RICK GRIMES WALGREENS EXCLUSIVE
