Damn that's cheap. I wonder what the other $8 MOTU item was.
For those just joining us, this has gone from a single store sighting to a nationwide thing. Big Lots are getting in MOTUC for $10 each. The confirmed list so far-
Buzz-Off- rare sighting
Megator- deluxe-sized figure but still $10
Mo-Larr/Skeletor- 2-pack but still only $10
Moss Man- both flocked and unflocked ear variants, flocked being rarer
Orko with Prince Adam - both standard and color changing versions, color changing being rarer
Thunder Punch He-Man - not common but has been found
Trap Jaw- newest sighting
Vykron- large box set but only $10
Despite someone claiming to have seen it, Shadow Weaver is not one of the figures in this batch. It was a hoax.
The following Ghostbusters toys have also been found alongside these-
12" 1:6 scale 2-pack of Egon in GB1 suit and Ray in GB2 suit for $30
- a 2-pack of Peter and Winston has been rumored to be found but there have been no confirmed sightings yet
Retro-Action Real Ghostbusters Peter Venkman, tan suit SDCC version
6" Vinz Clortho for $10
6" Ray Stantz "we're ready to believe you" version
6" Ray Stantz with slime blower
I won't link to the thread for possible NSFW language concerns but a poster on 4chan's /toy/ board found piles of Orko w/Prince Adam, the SDCC Mo-Larr/Skeletor 2-pack and Megator, along with a 12" Ghotsbusters 2-pack at a Big Lots in California. These are the photos for proof.
It's hard to say why- this could be like that lone Walmart that got in a stack of Roboto in which case this will be limited to one specific store. Check your Big Lots but do not 100% expect to find these just yet. If these become more widespread it could be a goldmine find, but the presence of Mo-Larr makes me think this was a secondary retailer unloading personal stock.

OMG the address on that receipt is only one town over from me
They're $10 regular price but if you join the Big Lots discount thing you get $20 off. It looks like all the MOTUC stuff was $10 each, regardless, and the GB 2-pacl was $30 for a GB1 Egon and GB2 Ray.
I would LOVE an Orko. Never got him.
Hmmm that's only a half hour from me.
I would buy Molarr for that price just to give my dentist friend lol.
that seriously ****** me off. We're paying top dollar for these things, fighting over them on release date and people are scalping them on Ebay for insane amounts of money and mattel just dump them in a big lots or walmart. Come on Mattycollector, you really think if you had "clearance" Items on the website no one would buy them??
Unless we see these at other Big Lots locations, we'll have to assume this is a one time thing. This is why I'm saying to check your Big Lots, but not to 100% expect to find them.
This might be worth a trip is someone is somewhat close and has some capital to help out some board members and even make a little cash for themselves.
Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

Man, I need a friend in California....
I'd love at least 1 of each at that price, especially the Mo-Larr set, but it's a little too much of a road trip for me.
If these were sold by Matty to Big Lots, I dread the reverse situation where they had put a very limited stock up for sale on the DR site, they sell out in minutes where resellers stood a chance grabbing them as well, then we have the opposite scenario where people go on and on about how they got shafted there too.
Sorry folks. I don't want to upset any of you. I understand pent up frustration if you've been the victim of QC and DR errors. But is this really worth getting angry about? A small allocation of product sold off at a local Big Lots?
We're not even sure how or who sold these off to Big Lots. We can sit here and needlessly stew over it, which does nothing but add to our daily stress level over some toys. Or, if you need them, just go to the Marketplace and see if you can make arrangements with a fan in that area to pick them up for you.
I have a couple Big Lots next to me and would be shocked to see something like this there!

I'll check a few stores here in San Diego. Probably will be none, but who knows.
I would totally make some Trolla customs with the extra Orkos.
Dang I would buy several of thoise Orko sets for customs! Nice find, I'm in TX so chances are pretty much null that I will find any at my local Big Lots.
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY!
I too would buy these for customs. I'll be checking stores in NE Wisconsin in the next few days.

No MOTUC @ Big Lots in MN!
Just checked, but they did have it in their system. The lady who checked it out had giggled when MOTU popped in her screen!
