I know it's hard not being able to just go out to grab them, but keeping unnecessary travel/exposure to an absolute minimum is paramount.

Here is what they told me:
Thank you for placing order# XXXXXXX with us.
We are really sorry that this has not yet been dispatched. Hasbro Ghostbusters Kenner Classics Winston Zeddemore and Chomper Ghost Retro Action Figure is on special order for you with our supplier, we expect your order to be dispatched on or before week commencing 30/06/2020.
Hope this helps.
Of the many things that could define our 30s or 40s... A global pandemic and corresponding lockdown is definitely one of the suckiest things we could've encountered.

I'm sure there's a few collectors who are at high risk and are much more reliant on the internet to get their items right now which as we know are still very much not as reliable...or fun as finding them is stores.yep, sucks. I sat around WalMart's website yesterday, hit refresh throughout the day and snagged Peter, Egon, Ray, Winston, & Slimer Kenner Classics. All at separate times. No free shipping on $15 only purchase. So frustrating knowing I could have had free shipping but ended up paying $30 and each one will come in a separate box. Hey, never thought out loud about it til I typed it...each one, not hitting the shelf, getting put in it's own separate shipping box....maybe they'll be mint.....one can hope that's a silver lining.
If there's a Walmart near you and you need something essential, you could work the toy aisle into your trip... But only if you have essential shopping.

I'd wait to June when they're supposed to ship pre ordes. If you still can't find them by then, scalp them. Walmart just sucks for exclusives. I pre-ordered stuff from Walmart months in advance just for you dang East coasters to randomly pick them up from the store weeks before it's shipped to meI live on the East Coast and neither of the two Walmarts I frequent have had them. If preorders aren't going out until June, maybe they aren't meant to be on store shelves by then either? I guess I don't mind paying a little extra for them as long as it's not an insanely high price hike. Not gonna pay 30+ per figure though that's for sure.
