    Wal-mart's two pack animated deluxe is in their ad for black friday. It's in the part of the ad for the Fri-Sat sale so maybe there will be larger quantities than if it was just the 6 hour sale.

    Can you really call anything with car a "mishap?" I'm pretty sure they're called "accidents."

    I think most of the exclusives have been released early to try and spark sales. I think all the Target exclusives were supposed to be Black Friday releases. Wal-marts 2 packs have been sighted and so have Costco and Sam's Club exclusives.

    The only miracle would be the release of Superion and Bruticus which would be absolutly a suprise.

    Hopefully that's when the next waves are released en masse. It'd be nice to go to Wal Mart and find Shockwave and Skywarp and Blurr. Almost worth tripping little old ladies in the mad, caffeine induced rush to the toy aisle on Black Friday.

    I have to work that day, for an online/catalog retail company, so it's going to be slow(everybody's out and about and not calling in). I'm just going to go out on Friday early morning at like 2-3am to my local Wal-marts and see what they have. This way I don't have to strongarm little old ladies or grab a toy out of a child's hand.

    2 to 3 AM? Good luck. That's when the lines usually get bigger to get in. Most WM's close at midnight and re-open at 0400 or 0500. People usually camp out around midnight, especially if there's a deal on big-ticket TV's or something.

    I'm taking a chance on WM this year, hoping to score a cheap XBox360 or some new TF's (Jetfire/Jetstorm, Shock, Sky, Blurr...). I work that day, too, but I at least want to hit the store early, just in case.
    It's all about the experience. Kind of an "I was there" thing, if you can stomach the rabid housewives and brutish armchair quarterbacks. I have a feeling they'll all be clamboring for Bakugan around here (already got a boatload for my daughter), so the TF's will be open market. WooHoo!
