I'd rather have stores get 20 exclusives than none at all! lol I think HTs need to rethink supplying their stores. Mine always gets 20+ of one exclusive but not one exclusive Dorbz! :(

I talked to the manager at my Hot Topic and they said their store never receive Dorbz :( It's really disappointing, but hopefully that changes soon!

I second or third this or whatever we are on!! lol Hot Topic is definitely the easiest. They get a ton of stock, most of their individual stores have their own instagram or facebook accounts where they post new arrivals and they will hold things for 24 hours if you call. Definitely top of the store exclusive stores. I also find them to the be the only reliable ones for calling. They always know what I am talking about and either already have the answer or go look for items over the phone :) I have also been really lucky with Walgreens and Target and lately with Toys R Us. It really is just the Walmart that stymies and eludes me.

I don't get why Walgreens gets POPs. Not a single person even knows what they are when I go. At least when you go to TRU they know what you're talking about.

I feel like the only one that has not found a Wal-Greens exclusive. Mine still has Frozen and other old ones total of like 5-6 Pops. One of these days I might walk in and if I find a exclusive I'm liable to hit the floor from shock!

Walmart has gotten a lot better lately. Except for Dr. Harleen, I think all the exclusives that have come out in the last year or two can be ordered on the site with Ship to Store.

In my experience Walmart has improved. Walgreens is the bane of my existence. It's a cold day in hell when I actually find one of their exclusives on shelves.

I have better luck with Walgreens than Hot Topic in my area. One Hot Topic (which gets cleared of exclusives as soon as they come in by Ebay resellers) vs. 12+ Walgreens stores within half an hour.

I'm well aware of that, but they get all the cool exclusives, so I like complaining about it.

I've had luck at local walgreens with Marvel exclusives. Star Wars exclusives are another story, all the stores in my area are clogged up with Snow Troopers, Prototype Boba Fetts and Imperial guards. I was able to find Scarlet Spider (at one random store) and Ms Marvel (more plentiful but I pulled the trigger and bought it on walgreens.com early December.) recently and most stores restocked unmasked Spider-Gwen.

I abhor Walgreens exclusives. I have to drive too far to find one, and they never have anything good. Having said that, I stopped in one today while we were out-and-about and picked up both Scarlet Spider and Masked Sabine. Go me!
I bought a Mystery Mini and thought it was cool. Now I have shelves covered in Funko vinyl products. What Happened?

I have every Walgreens exclusive except chase Green Goblin. I am hoping to get him and Hobgoblin to finish off my Spider Man Set. Walgreens is a hit or miss for me most of the time I get lucky, but then there are those times I'm calling and running around from store to store to end up empty handed like I did with the Star Wars Rebels Pops and Green Goblin. I ended up buying the Star Wars Pops at the Flea Market. I wish stock was better at some of these stores like Walgreens and Walmart though Walmart is getting better they still have some work to do.

I think I would fall over if I found a WalGreens exclusive. Have not found one yet. Maybe this year will be different. Doubt it but anything is possible

Finally found Scarlet Spider. I've had good good luck with Walgreens exclusives. The only one I've never found was the Regular Punisher. Even before the restocks the only Punisher I've seen was the Thunderbolts version. There's been tons of complaints about Walgreen but I've had more issues finding things at Walmarts. There are around 10 Walmarts in my vicinity and I had been checking multiple times during the release time but I've never found a Dr Harleen. Now my local Walmart has a dedicated Funko section. Hopefully this makes finding things a lot easier.

I'm not sure if distribution has been different with the past few waves of exclusives, but over the last 5 months or so, I haven't found any walgreen's exclusives in the wild in California. I didn't have much trouble finding their exclusives until recently.

Agreed. It seems none of the Walgreens here in the Bay Area got any new exclusives. While Grievous and Sabine were showing up all over the country we got nothing ever. No Scarlet Spider, nothing new. We still have the old Star Wars exclusives on our shelves and occasionally the old Marvel. :(

I haven't been to Walgreens recently, but over here in Washington the Walgreens typically are well stocked on their exclusives. I'll definitely be hunting for the new John Stewart pop though.

I think the problem with the Bay Area in general is that we have so many collectors hunting so they are gone really quickly. You pretty much have to check stores every day or find a particularly friendly employee that will actually go into the back and check for you to get something. I have always been pretty luck with Walgreens, but I did never find a Ms. Marvel. I did stop looking though when a friend near Sacramento picked one up for me. I know they were around though because I did find one lone Scarlet Spider in a super beat up box at one Walgreens. There are just so many Walgreens in this area, not to mention Hot Topics, Gamestops and Targets that if you are super persistent then you can generally find what you are after. Walmart and Barnes and Noble are something of a different story. I think it's because there aren't many of them so the flippers find them a bit easier to hit and wipe out.

I have had some luck with Walgreens Exclusives using their in stock tracker. It has help A LOT! Now I am searching for John Stewart. Not sure how to track him through the website, I'm thinking he will be be under the generic Funko assortment.

I've had mixed luck with Walgreens. There are a lot of stores in my area and they all get pops but their are also flippers that hit all of the stores. They are still much better than the Walmarts in my area that do not regularly stock any Funko product.

There was a day I literally went to 9 Walgreens to search for exclusives and found not a one. I've seen a couple in lately though so am hoping it's getting better. I heard that the metallic green goblin chase is being re-released soon.

I hit 10 Walgreens this weekend looking for new stuff. They did have Funko exclusives in every store, but nothing I was looking for. I have never seen more unmasked Spider Gwens. I think each store had like 10 of those things.

My local Walgreen's have varied - one has some Yoda and Boba Fett protos, a different one had a Scarlet Spider, and another had several AT-AT Drivers. Completely different results at 3 stores...almost nothing the same between the 3.

I found some random assortments along with all the Spider Gwens. Some Spirit Yodas and Proto Boba Fetts and a couple of Ms. Marvel. Not a lot of Marvel stuff - we will see what the next few weeks bring - still hoping for some Dorbz Chases.
