Masters of the Universe Origins Was Online at Walmart (and promptly Sold Out)

Walmart listed Masters of the Universe Origins action figures He-Man & Sketetor sometime during the night. And just like that they sold out. Update! More listings for the other figures also have shown up but are also marked as sold out.  New listings have appeared on eBay already pre-selling the toys at a hefty mark up.

I have said it a couple of times– Walmart is a horrible distributor for toys. They have made no effort since the departure of Toys R Us to claim the toy market. They have in fact only shrunk down the toy aisles, and action figures are sometimes down to half a row– single sided.

The Real Ghostbusters let us see what would happen when exclusive toys hit Walmart. We saw full displays at some stores and nothing everywhere else. We saw preorders ignored and then cancelled. Plus, not to mention the insider issues with the stores. I know many stores in LA where the hot toys never see the shelves. The insider employees hold and hide the good stock to sell to their buddies later for a kickback.

Now, this is not new– every Toys R Us worked like this too. The difference is distribution. TRU had a lot more stores carrying a lot more toys. For example, each TRU would get a pallet of He-Man and they would restock every day or so to the shelves. The insider sales were there but didn’t make a big difference in the end. Walmart will get a case or two a month or fewer. And to reiterate, these toys will not be seen for the most part. You will have to end up paying secondary prices if you really want the toys now or wait for a Hail Mary your next time into Wallymart.

“May the odds ever be in your favor” or good luck bub!
