Just two days before the AEW Unrivaled line is expected to arrive in Walmart stores across the country, Ringside Collectible has begun shipping its pre-orders of the inaugural figure line by Jazwares.
Several collectors noted that they began receiving shipping confirmations (although I’m still waiting). Ringside posted to Twitter late Friday night that the first series had arrived, and the largest retailer dedicated solely to wrestling figures asked for patience as it worked “hard to ship out all the pre-orders.”
The first wave of AEW Unrivaled action figures features Cody and Brandi Rhodes, the Young Bucks, Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega. For those who haven’t ordered yet, Ringside Collectibles’ next pre-order window is in early November.
Meanwhile, collectors who pre-ordered WWE Legends Series 7 from Target.com have begun receiving shipping notices this week.
However, some collectors, myself included, received emails from Target saying that the figures would ship separately — first Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, then Razor Ramon. Greg “The Hammer” Valentine remained on “backorder.”
Early Saturday morning, I received an email from Target asking me to confirm a delayed shipping date for The Hammer, which is now expected to ship by August 14.
Check your inboxes. If you received this notice, you’ll have to go to Target.com to approve it.
Finally, Entertainment Earth has begun shipping its pre-orders of the Comic-Con exclusive Mr. T WWE Elite figure. I received my notice on Friday.
I’ll keep monitoring the situation and reporting back as news comes in.
