I hate to be a party pooper, but Wal*Mart's website isn't always accurate. It's been my experience that when it says "In Limited Stores" it's either never been there, won't be there, or has been in like 10 or less.
Chances are, he's online only at this point and might see retail release at Wal*Mart in their next seasonal reset, which is due just in time for Christmas, which is when he'll have the best chance of selling. That, coupled with Layaway, should help sales.
But, the rumor is that he's receiving a set amount of production pieces due to his size and price and when they're gone, they're gone. (We'll see. Hasbro's known for clogging shelves with their stuff...)

I have yet to see it in any retail stores in the Los Angeles area though it was also for online order on amazon.
Amazon's sold out. (Which is surprising.) Looks like HTS and TRU are the only ones with it still available for sale. However, BBTS still has a preorder up. I don't know if that means more are being produced or just some leftover stock from whatever warehouse... I also find it odd that they haven't received that allotment yet. That preorder was for the beginning of September and it's yet to be fulfilled... Hasbro's been shortchanging BBTS for awhile now.
