where can i find them?.. is it only WALMart? I know TRU doesn't carry them? what bout target? thanks
Only at Walmart. Apparently the stores getting them in get them in huge quantities though so if you find a place stocking them you shouldn't have a problem getting both
i don't even have a walmart around me.. im in NYC .. sucks sucks..
That's a pretty big IF, unfortunately, out where I am. /grumble
My walmart stocked them about two weeks ago; since then I think they sold 2 ravages (and I bought one). Along with older alts sitting on the shelf as well I can see why Hasbro is (unfortunately) ending the line (possibly).
I saw a ton of them at a Walmart less than 2 miles from my apartment. Picked up one of each.
I went ahead and bought 2 on evil bay. I really doubt either will be found in any of the local WMs. Due to distribution and scalpers...
If only there was some sort of auction site available where you could buy them without having to ever leave your home.
Screw it. I caved in and bought them at BBTS this morning. I live in NYC and don't have the time to drive to a Walmart.
Hey, I know where you are going with this...but is it fair for people who don't live near a wally world to have to pay the jacked up e-bay prices, when other people who happen to live near wal marts can pick 'em up at normal price. If E-bay had alt's at the same price as the store, & shipping equated to in store tax I'd give they guy the same advice...but paying $35 + shipping, just cuz he didn't buy a home near walmart is a bit unfair.
Another soap box thing....If a figure, like the alternator, is exclusive to a store like Walmart...then they should be Available at ALL walmarts...these alts are exclusive to walmarts...& only certain wal marts got 'em...that's not right!
Life isn't fair. The false sense of entitlement people get about toys is a little silly. NO ONE has a fundamental right to purchase toys at the price they want.
Besides, if you don't have a Walmart nearby, you must have penguins for neighbors.
Never seen one. I've been checking 4 stores a day for 3 weeks now, even hitting 2 of them around 9:45pm when the restock pallets make their ways out to the floor.
I can honestly say these have not / might not hit the majority of Chicagoland (west, north, northwest burbs)
It's beyond frustrating.
It's also not 'fair' that Alt Rumble will never be released in Europe... i sucked it up and imported it.
Frankly, if it's the worst thing that ever happens to you, you have a charmed life.
Oh I agree, I think it REALLY sucks for europe & such...EVERYTHING seems to be higher priced there...if you can find it....
E-bay almost seems like a deal.
NYC has no Walmarts and the only penguins are in zoos.....
Considering I said there are plenty of them near me, I'm surprised noone asked me to pick them up for them. I could pick them up for $65 shipped in the US. That's $42.40 retail plus Ky state sales tax, $10 to cover the shipping, and another $2.60 to cover the paypal fees. The last $10 is for my trouble. That's only $5 per car. Still cheaper than BBTS by $3 and shipping.
My WalMart just got them in this past Thursday. I had been looking for about a month. As I understand it, they are still showing up at stores. If you haven't found them yet then don't freak out. The vast majority of stores have not got them in yet but that does not mean that they wont get them in.
Does anyone know the Id, Product# or whatever they call their version of DCPI #s at Walmart for these 2? Do they have their own set of 3s or do they have the same as the other Alternators?
