If anyone finds a Moss Man and/or Skeletor Mo Larr pack can you PLEASE snag it for me? I'd greatly appreciate any help!

Went to my Biglots today.

They had Orko with Prince Adam, Molarr and Skeletor, Cheif Carnivus, Sy-Clone, Faceless One.
I believe I also saw MossMan and Adora. They might have had a few more characters.

Nearly got Orko, but buying these would have been REALLY spurious purchases with no bearing on my collection and what I get over all.
Cause if I had got Orko, I would have also got Molarr and Skeletor to simply have all the main characters. Maybe if I come into some money sometime and they still have them.
Now if I had found Tytus or Vykron it would have been all over and bought!!

Just got the weekly e-mail from Big Lots and MOTUC and Ghostbusters are prominently featured in the middle of the ad. They have a link on the website that lets you see which stores in your area got the "deals" in and for the Louisville, KY only two stores don't show up - Bardstown Rd (Fern Creek) and Dixie Hwy...

Thanx for that info. Unfortunately the site is not specific enough. It shows a few stores in my area that " received the deal " But it doesn't tell me what stock they actually have. For example I was at the one store close to me the other day & saw those Ghostbuster figures. Which I posted about. There were no MOTU at all. That store is marked " received the deal " Now is it because they received something from that particular buy out & that something being the Ghostbusters? Or does it mean that they received some of each item & they may not have put out the MOTU stuff yet? If that was the case, I would need to go up there everyday to check. If all they got/are getting is the Ghostbusters, there is no need to waste my time.

Hit your link Jim and it said it was no longer available :? I'll keep looking in my area. No one has mentioned it in our local sightings thread over at Fwoosh.

I've begun to collect MOTUC after signing up for a Greyskull Castle. With Big Lots getting some of these in it's really helped, only found a handful. Hoping that they continue to receive them, I'd like to have a bunch of them by the time the castle shows up.

Hit three stores today and only the first had any sign of them ever being there... 3 Ray/Egon 12" 2-packs and an army of 6" Vinz Clorthos.

I hit 3 stores yesterday that supposedly had the buy out. All Ghostsbusters stuff with no MOTU to be found. The one cashier even knew what I was talking about when I mentioned the " we got the deal " on the website. Before I could even finishing asking, she said " we never got in any of the Heman stuff, just Ghostbusters " I was kind of shocked since half the time employees at a Toy store don't know what the hell you are talking about when asking about a line, let alone this closeout store that carries all kinds of items. Apparently I wasn't the only one who asked about these toys.

Mind you, I don't even care about the MOTU stuff. I just happen to be out & about & the stores weren't really out of my way. If I saw some figures, I was going to buy them to help out people here who needed them. I know what's it's like to be a collector in need of certain figures that are expensive on the aftermarket. I was a JLU collector that refused to pay $50 to $70 for the one hole that was in my collection. By some stroke of luck the chinese ebay sellers just happened to get a hold of a ton of STAS Aquaman's & I finally got one for $6, free shipping. My point is if someone needed a say Teela & I picked one up, I would have helped you out & gave it to you for $10/tax & whatever it cost to ship it to you.

I finally found two MOTUC figures today at Big Lots. The one I stopped at last week didn't have any, but a different one I stopped at today had one each Adora and Icarius. I grabbed Icarius. Not bad for $10.
