    So, I dunno if this is news or not, and I have no pics to confirm (because I didn't buy), but one of my fellow posters in the PA thread told me to post:

    I spotted 1xAirachnid, 2x Dead End, and at least 1x Shadow Striker BB tonight at my local Walmart in Hazleton, PA, so it's out there. Ironically enough, I think this WM actually skipped completely over the Vehicon wave...

    If this is true then I have some serious calling to do.

    You way want to go back and try to pick that Airachnid up though, gives us more proof and you'd be able to sell it quite easily on the BST section with how rare of a figure it is.

    I'm just baffled that it's found in PA first, usually they never are first found anywhere outside California or Texas.

    Nice, westside. Gonna have to start looking soon. Got a nice $50 Walmart giftcard from a charity auction to use on this wave.

    To be fair, we've never gotten Wave 3 at this Walmart.

    Not once.

    Yeah... this totally gives Canada grounds to complain about our wave 1 shelfwarmers being the newest mainline stock again haha.


    Meanwhile...

    *rolls around in fictionally large pile of FE toys that exist purely for the sake of this post's ridiculousness*

    Interesting, jru42287 said something similar. Might be something to this - hope it's not a new (and annoying) trend in availability emerging.

    I look forward to seeing a new paint job on the hordes of Bumblebees clogging shelves.


    -ZacWilliam, on the other hand we havn't gotten Wave 3 here ever so these may not even offer that backhanded plus...

    Man if I find these at my Wal Mart when I get home, I'm going to be pissed I pre-ordered them from TFSource. No store in my area has seen wave 3 so I had to use alternate methods to get Knockout, Hot Shot, and Vehicon - figured it was the usual distribution shenanigans.

    I'll know in about a week...

    Sigh...I dont suppose anyone knows of any UK stores that stock anything other than wave 1 and ratchet and arcee? Is that all we're getting? It is kind of annoying having to import so much. Why are our waves so slow compared to the USA?

    I don't know I'd call that slow in this case. I'm in the US, and that's all any store near here has ever had. From what I understand the majority of fans have had very little luck finding Wave 3 since stores are stuck full of W1 Bumblebee.


    ZacWilliam, not doubting that the UK is usually behind but in this particular case distribution has been equally wanting overhere, I think...

    Gives me hope for the Kmart I work at, we missed the Wave 3 toys, and we only have 3 Deluxes on the pegs right now, maybe wave 4 will be inbound.

    Not to mention with the RC toys coming in, it's certainly possibly :D

    This is getting me a little upset! Up in Ontario Canada I have still only seen wave 1! The local Toys R Us transformers display is a wall of Yellow and black! DOTM Bees, FE Prime Bees, and 1st edition Prime Bee! The Manager dose not know what to do. She said it's what ever head office sends. And Hasbro short packed every one except for Bee and cliffjumper! How many Bees Sid Hasbro think they were going to sell between the kids and the fans? I love the carecter but it's over kill.
    I'm kicking my self for not picking them up when I was in Hong Kong last April. They were only $3 dollars more. I thought the would be coming shortly since I say BBTS listing them for us. When I get to TFCom I'm going to give the Hasbro an ear full. And show her the photos of the TRU wall that has not moved for months. I know it's not there fault but maby they will take it back to the office.

    I'm sorry to all of you if this is a long rant. I had to get it off my chest.

    Well if you do bring it up at an appropriate panel (which I'm really hoping someone does), it'll probably go a lot better if you do it politely, and with a question that's rehearsed a little before hand. Like, I'm by no means an expert at this shit, but asking if there's anything they'd like to tell us about future waves or future assortment & saying that it'll be appreciated will go a lot farther than getting on the mic with a 10 minute rant about how Bumblebees are eating your store alive like Scraplets.

    Errr, I guess that'd actually be kinda funny, but you know what I'm saying. :)

    I was able to find Knock Out the other day, but as yet still haven't seen Vehicon.
