    I hope I can be the first to pay three times as much for something that will be available everywhere in a few weeks.
    :rolleyes2

    *Hand Slaps head........hard!* I'm sitting here waiting for mine to arrive and they are already shipping here a week after Action HQ. I need a drink. That doesn't usually happen. At least I dont have to hunt.

    There's nothing to indicate it was purchased at retail though.

    See, the thing is there are plenty of people willing to do so. I don't know why, but they are.

    If I hadn't moved 80 miles north, I'd drive over there and buy one off of their TF guy Aaron. They have a great stock of old shit though.

    - Universe Swerve
    - MOSC RID combiners
    - Black card Energon basics (Arcee for one)
    - Universe Cyberjets
    - Tons of old Alternators (Shockblast, Grimlock, Decepticharge, Silverstreak, Smokescreen)

    Good place to go if you want to blow a paycheck :)  They most likely have Wing Saber, Sky Shadow, and probably Soundwave too.

    With Alternators, it's really hit-or-miss in many places. Some never saw Swerve and Decepticharge. Others never got a red box Prowl, only the new packaging Prowls.

    Considering Optimus Prime is being released with Skids, Rollbar, and Ricochett, there's a chance you won't see him as the other three have been available since the latest push.

    If I was a retailer, I would do it too. I don't make money matching WalMart's prices.

    True, I have paid up to $10 over retail for an Alt before... then I always see it a week later in the store, but I have heard that there are places certain waves never even show up.

    I've bought Alts on Ebay for higher than retail prices, and never saw them at a brick and mortar store, so no regrets there. $30-35 is my limit though. Any more than that is just nuts.

    Ooh, if they've started shipping out it should only be a matter of months before they arrive here (if Ricochet and Rollbar are any indication, at least). :redface2:

    Already grabbed Ricochett and Rollbar (pppt). Grabbed Cyb Excellion last night. Next up is Alt Prime, and then I'm done till Soundwave.

    Nope.

    All we currently know is that there will be a straight repaint of Optimus Prime, named "Nemesis Prime", that is supposedly "limited".

    I'm tempted to check out Wal-Mart later this evening. I happened to be in Target, but I didn't see anything new.
