    Popy Ultraman Release Date?

    Wasn't Ultraman supposed to be on shelves at Walmart by now? Didn't Mego tell us "Mid-November?" We're pretty late into November now and, as far as I know, nobody's seen it at Walmart. My local Walmart has had nothing but a bunch of Legolas and Aragorn with some of the horror figures being stocked every now and then for 4 months now, so I'm doubting whether I'll ever see it at all. It's sad because it is a figure I'd love to own and my only other option is to pre-order it from an online retailer. Going that route, I'd be waiting longer to obtain one (the release date for them is in January or February I think) and have to pay the shipping cost on top of that. At this point, my hand might be forced towards that direction unless I'm wrong. Am I wrong?

    It was not promised for mid November. The advance Wal-Mart characters are Creature, Saru and Chucky. Ultra-Man will be out in January.

    I believe Marty said something to the effect that he'd ship at the end of August in that wonky Ultraman day interview he did. Since then they've said it'll be in the new year, but if you only saw that interview you might think he was supposed to be out now.

    I'm stoked to get him in January!

    While the shipping cost is a factor, my opinion is that you'll likely get one sooner by ordering from someone like Frank Wojo than you will searching one out at WallyWorld. We don't even know, at east to my knowledge, if WW has ordered more assortments, but we certainly know Frank has ordered from L2P.

    It appears I have misread many things said in the past. I apologize for the mistake. I remember it being said Ultraman is part of the advance Walmart set in the past, but I'm definitely wrong.
    Also, a question: does ZLC Collectibles charge pre-orders when you place the order or when the items ship?

    They charge when you place your order, so it's all paid for and ready to go once they receive their stock.

    It goes without saying I'll be buying duplicates from this line. I about did back flips when this was first announced. A life long fan of the original series and a dream come true. I like the Popy homage. Great sensibilities in the design by all involved. Love it.

    There are two megocorp instagram posts that explicitly say Ultraman will be in Walmart in November. So maybe you did not misread anything.

    Oh well. I already pre-ordered Ultraman and Ultraseven from ZLC Collectibles anyway. lol
