New Purchases: Walmart Exclusive Three-Packs The Shield And Team WCW

Getting up and hitting my local Walmart before work paid off rather quickly for me.  Got the Retro Roman Reigns yesterday, and 24 hours later I am the very happy owner of The Shield and Team WCW Bash At The Beach three-packs.

As of 6:30 AM, January 5, 2017 there were one of each still on the shelves.  I hate to admit I thought about grabbing both to see if I could make a quick buck, but there were two problems there.

First problem is that once I have something in my possession it's hard for me to part with it.  Beyond that my kid would love to have them.

Second problem, and I'm not criticizing those who do this, is that I didn't want to be "that guy."  I'd rather share that they are out there and give another collector a shot at them or even maybe some kid who thinks they are just the coolest.

All that said, here's the pics.  Pardon my reflection in any of these, I really need to work on my picture taking skills if I'm going to keep doing these posts.  For now, "It is what it is."

I should add that I realized after I left that I grabbed a Team WCW with a crease on the back of the package, I wish I hadn't done that, but I'm just going to live with it.  When they are displayed you can't see the back anyway.  It is funny though because I obsessed over the packing on The Shield figures and actually swapped them after heading toward the register.  The front of this Team WCW package was better than the other one though.

Oh, and because I forgot to mention this on the Retro posts yesterday, these were $49.97 before tax.  So a little cheaper than what I had read they would be.  The rest of the pics are after the jump.
