Might want to keep an eye out if your interested because it looks like solid stock is on its way for both locations.
Thanks. I got the ones I needed in that wave, what I missed out on and never saw was the previous wave with Evil Lyn and Orc0

I saw that wave maybe twice at Walmart and once at TRU, but never with Evil-Lyn. Far as I know no one in Canada has ever seen her at mass retail, which is super frustrating. It kind of boggles my mind that with three separate MOTU lines at retail right now that Mattel has managed to botch two of them so badly.

I know, it sucks hard. The netflix CG line is weird though, since each wave has different versions of said wave with different case assortments.

Anyways, wanted to write in that the Wind Raider is 2 cents at Walmarts. I bought mine no problem at self checkout.

Not sure if its still on the shelves but I just picked up the origins wind raider from Walmart for $0.02
Only one I got the side flap was ripped but everything intact.
Also clamp champ and ram-man on clearance for $5, battlecat, panthor, jet sled/Prince Adam $19

The MOTU origins castle is red stickered at $69.9x in-store at GS here minus your Edge discount. Masterverse clearance continues on Battlecat $34.98 minus Edge and Skeletor/god who is under $20.

Seems like this line is basically dead in Canada at least.

Re: Masters of the Universe Origins discussion

Well the Horde Trooper wave seems to have sold well for Walmart so far, I would hope that Walmart would still carry the line in the future, although it has sold poorly everywhere else (TRU, Gamestop) so it may never show up at those retailers down the road.

I just wish Gamestop would have pre-orders for MotU Origins stuff so that this protects them from not over-ordering and the fans can have a guarantee of getting desirable characters.

I was thankfully able to hunt down 6 of the horde trooper, which was all I had wanted, but it sure took a lot of hunting to do it. I'd rather just pre-order an entire case of the troopers than do that kind of crazy legwork.

I've yet to see the Horde Trooper wave in my part of New Brunswick. Wave 5 is still clogging the shelves here.
