A quick check on some of the retail stores show Walmart to ship product Aug. 3 and Toys-r-Us to ship on Aug.2
You can preorder at all the outlets as of July 17 . I guess we will start really getting into the sales numbers next month.
Amazon release date is August 4, 2013.
Stuck at sales ranking of #79 in toys today. Anticipating top ten by the first week of August. Though lower priced items and Horse Head Mask are providing strong competition.
