They sell their own stuff at MSRP regardless of what other places charge.

I didn't realize $84 was MSRP..I figured it would be more along the lines of $65-$70.

Oh well...Might pick up that other binder though so I have both

Hey, guys. Here are a few more of the oversized redemption cards I did for the retail set coming out next week. It was nice to draw on a surface that wasn't 2.5 by 3.5! I forgot what it was like. Lol.

Those are awesome Chris

I'll pick up some retail packs and have my fingers crossed I pull that second one with the governor in front of the tanks. Love that green color for the heads.

My order was allocated today. I pre-ordered a case MONTHS ago and was told I could only get 7 boxes. I passed on them as I was gonna flip a case. Just an FYI that either my supplier is FOS, or the demand is pretty high and they're allocating it heavily. I had no problem getting Season 2 of the TV show from the same supplier, so I was a bit shocked to see this allocated, considering I pre-ordered it well in advance.

So, does this mean that everyone runs out to Wal-Mart on the June 5th? Would it be that exact day? Thanks.

Im in Australia and the product doesnt get here, so I have to weigh alot of things up etc, as im sure we all do...i remember the carry on over the yuen/cohan signed redemption for S2 tv - i think there should be one redemption only so, as half of the people lucky enough to find the needle in the hay stack dont feel ripped off..i havent worded this right, but again, I hope you knwo what I mean...

I understand frustration in regards to allocation, as my case order of Magic's "Modern masters" was cut from a case down to a single box. But I also know that I've only ordered 2-3 cases of each magic product, so really felt I deserved at the most 2-3 boxes. But 1?

In regards to crypto's allocations, it's fairly easy Indy. Did you order: Superman/Fringe/Castle/Vamp Diaries 2 etc? If you did, and ordered cases at a time, then you should get this product. Allocations are based on the number of these purchases. I'm not calling you out in any way here, just stating math facts. If you purchased 4 cases of all the others, then you should get 4 cases of this. At least that's how my distributors explained it to me. As far as WD season 3? Who knows. I feel allocations on that product will be felt the hardest of any product in history lol.

200 for the release with Carl on the Binder and then reissued for SDCC with the base set, or something like that, I remember reading it was a lot higher production than 1st issue with Carl

So, a lot less than this new binder for series 2 with still so many available for series 1. Good to know. Wasn't sure if I needed to stock up. Thanks!

The carl Binder is prob sitting at around $100 and hard to find on the aftermarket where as the other is only $25-45 and plenty around.

It could be a few days before.

When Big Bang Theory dropped a few months back, you could find the retail packs in Target about 2 days prior to release. All really depends on when the vendor visits the store. Most vendors visit once a week (unless its a major product like coca cola), so whenever he/she visits for next week, that's when they'll probably be out at the store.

its all good for a June 5 release (or earlier) as most suppliers/distributors have already had the cases delivered and are "in hand"

Yup, I've got all mine on hand as well, so June 5th is the date. Mine all ship this weekend to be received on the 5th.

If we all want to keep in touch via this thread when everyone knows their Wal-Mart has received the cards, I will do the same and buy as much as possible and have no problem sharing with those that do not have a Wal-Mart by them. If that interests anyone let me know. I'll be sure to definitely make the effort to hit the ones by me as there are quite a few in just a couple mile radius. Please just let me know. This will be the first in many years since I stopped collecting Treasure Hunts in HotWheels back in the day.....lol....And, most of my Wal-Marts are all 24 hours too. I'll kick the Yorkie out of the Louis Vuitton and pack it with Walking Dead packs

Sounds like a plan.

And same here, if anyone wants a few extra packs I'll gladly pick some extra up for whoever. Just have to cover the costs of the packs and shipping, prior to me picking them up.
