    With the average price of gas above $4.00 a gallon now, I would rather check my local Wal-Mart for Animated figures by phone rather than driving and wasting gas by not finding any. The only issue with this is that the one figure I am most anxious to find is Grimlock and I'm sure I can't just call them and ask "Do you have any Transformers Animated Grimlock figures in stock?" so Iw as wondering how I would go about making this call?

    If a UPC code is required, can someone who has purchased a Grimlock from Wal-Mart please post there UPC codes along with how to call and find out if he's in stock.

    Thanks in advance!

    Actually, I called the other day and they said they had Ratchet and Black Arrkaneia(he couldn't pronounce Arachnia...). He said Ark-Cane-ee-ea.

    I do that and just hope the employees are honest. Usually if they put me on hold for a while I assume they are working hard at finding said product, I work at retail too...

    Saves me the time, ride, and disappointment...

    I 'd second that.

    btw, I noticed that not every single one of those crew has one of those price/scanner..., if the crew answered the phone doesn't have that device, he/she 'd have to ask you what you are looking for, and then walked away to look for it while leaving you on hold.. then come back and tell you an answer.

    This is so in-effective... I wish I 'd just call up and speak to the store manager... usually I got on hold for 5+ minutes... then I gave up...
    Speaking of the bay area Walmarts, they all SUCK !!

    yeah only department managers get them or the associate in charge at the time and sometime departments have to share it sucks what you have about 30 mins before you have to go home, 100 price changes and you cant find a single one someone isnt using

    The lady I talked to was very nice. I gave her Ratchet's UPC (This was before Caticlizm posted Grimmie's UPC) and she told me that according to the computer, they had 72 Ratchet's on hand! I'm gonna call in the morning to see if they have Grimlock and then I'll drive over on my way to school and pick a couple figures up.

    Good luck man, trying to find Grimlock myself (and that UPC number will come in handy for sure).

    Yeah, when I picked up Lockdown and Starscream today the endcap that Lockdown was in (think they only had one or two of him total) was full of nothing but Ratchet and Blackarachnia.

    Having the upc code isn't going to help much. All voyagers are going to cross reference to one another, as are all deluxes. It might show 12 Grimlocks in stock, but it could be 6 Megs and 6 Starscreams. It's the way WM's inventory system works. Anything that comes in assortment packages all cross link together. You're going to have to ask for someone to actually find the particular item you're looking for.
