    Just got this email from BBTS

    Just got this email from BBTS:

    god damn it! :banghead:  :mad 
    Oh well, I willing to pay more to get those since it will be much more of a hassle for me to go to target or Wal-Mart.

    Anyone have any idea which "mass market store" will be getting them exclusively?

    Wal-mart, and in hefty numbers, one e-bay seller reported they're coming 3 each per case and had 48 stocked as an endcap promotion.

    I just got the same e-mail, it does not seem fair, I'll take my chances with Wal-mart.

    Wal-Mart, eh? Might have to pay extra on eBay just to keep my Wal-Mart embargo going.

    Yeah, I just got the same email too.....I cancelled mine.

    And the "mass market store" is.... Walmart...where he will be priced at $19.96, the normal price for Alts....

    Sorry BBTS, but I'll take my chances with wally world.

    "Mass market store exclusive"? Does that mean Target AND Walmart, perhaps others?

    I think it's just Walmart. Further proof it's an exclusive to one store is that BBTS isn't getting any from hasbro. If it were to multiple stores, BBTS i'm sure would find a way to get them straight from hasbro. At this price though, my order is now canceled with them and I'll put my faith and wallet in walmart's hands.

    No great surprise, but no hard feelings towards BBTS, without them i'd be lost.

    I wish I could say the same. But after that last Mirage debacle, I still have a bad taste in my mouth.

    Man, that sucks for Joel. Also sucks for anyone who boycotts Wal-Mart though -- because either way, Wally World gets their cut.

    I guess I'll wait for the giant endcaps to roll in. I'm guessing Ravage will be the shelf-warmer.

    Hmmm... I did wonder if BBTS would have to put up the price and source these alts from somebody other than Hasbro (easy to say in retrospect though I guess).

    The store is indeed Walmart. Hopefully I won't have to wait much longer to find them.

    I'm guessing this'll be the same for the other online guys. I had Ravage preordered from the club store, maybe I should drop them a line.
