Rite Aid just bought out the pharmacy I worked for. I work (until Dec 21) for Brooks / Eckerd and I just got back from training there. I didn't see ANY WW figures in any of the RITE AID stores near the corporate offices!!! Can anyone get me a 10" Caped Wonder Woman? I could get one from overseas for a LOT more money in a damaged box!! Why do that if one of you nice guys could hook a brotha up?!!

PLEASE let me know so I can have one of these babies!! Thanks all!!

A question for those who found the Wonder Woman/Martian Manhunter 10" wave at Rite-Aid: did those Rite-Aids already carry 10" JLU or was a new space made on the shelf for these figs?

I have checked the Rite-Aids in my area and there is no space for 10" JLU figs.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I went 0 for 4 with Rite Aids today. The closest thing I found were 2 Superfriends and that was only at one store.

The Rite Aids in the San Jose area did not carry 10" JLU before the holiday toy reset. The new figures are on the bottom shelf, and have a shelf price tag that matches the figures. The chaotic toy shelves have room for these figures.

I was really surprised to find Wonder Woman and phasing Martian Manhunter (plus 2 Supermen and 1 Batman) at my nearest Rite Aid. This somewhat rundown store is a tidepool of toys from the past; Mattel Masters of the Universe, Sigma 6 Soldier figures from 2005, blue package 4.75" JLU Green Arrows, Hot Wheels from 2003, etc. This is probably because the prices are very high, like JLU 4.75 inch for $9.99! The 10" were a reasonable $10.49.

According to the very helpful Barbara in the Los Gatos store (a nicer part of town), the Rite Aid toy distribution is mostly random. It seems like each store may have gotten one case or maybe half a case each.

I'll bet they are not going to get any more of these, so keep a sharp eye out!

I also found one 10" Hawkgirl at a Big Lots in San Carlos, so the only remaining 10" figures I have not seen are Hourman and the JLords Jon Stewart.

The overall presentation of the phasing Martian is excellent; his cape folds fade into the purple and black stripes on the cardboard backing. he does have three visible support post points on his trunks. The pattern of the posts suggests that Brainiac has a line of boxer shorts...

Wonder Woman has the cloth cape, golden lasso and a nice grey WW logo stand with peg.

I hope Mattel makes a few more of these excellent 10" figures.

I just found at my favorite store a TON of Hawgirls and JLord Flashes last night...honestly, there were probably 20 of each & not a single JLord Superman, MM, Bats, WW or Hourman.

Where are you btw? All of the ebay listings seem to be WA or CA. Just curious to see how long it takes for it to move to the East Coast.

It took visits to 9 different Rite Aids over the past 2 days but I finally found WW w. cape and Phasing MM at the 9th location.

This one happened to be the location with the largest amount of space and the largest toy aisle. Some of the other locations I visited didn't even have a toy section apart from the holiday non name brand toys that they seem to be stocking at every Rite Aid.

So I ended up finding the clear MM at a Rite Aid in Washington the weekend before last, while I was up there for a wedding. Go figure.

Anywho, here are some turnarounds in the same style as Julius' blog entry.

I have to admit that J'onn looks very cool.

I haven't opened up my invisible J'onn yet but after seeing those pics, I will certainly do just that. The purple box doesn't do justice to this figure and makes it look darker than it really is.
