    Mentioned here as a sidenote...

    Before anyone says ANYTHING: The last non-online US sighting of Menasor was at a specialty store that was specifically said to "only get in one of each toy", which would put it in the same non-mass retail category as BBTS or any given eBay store.

    Now... receipt pics, anyone?

    What's in the case besides Menasor and Wing Saber? Sky Shadow?

    Because I saw a lone Sky Shadow at a Walmart here yesterday, and I seriously doubt it has sat there since March. It probably was in a case with Wing Saber and Menasor.

    Apparently he was found in California from a poster here as well. I alerted Super_Megatron to the post, and he's already requested photo proof of said event.

    Sky Shadow's the Jetfire repaint right? I saw him last week and he was the only new one on the shelf. Makes sense that the repaint would still be there while the two new molds got snagged, I guess.

    It is the Jetfire repaint. That's my thought. I could tell it was case fresh. I'm going hunting again tonight.

    Menasaur ships with Wing Saber and Sky Shadow. I picked Mine up last week at Toys R Us, but I'm in Canada.

    Half an hour ago at Wal-mart in Fremont, CA, I saw the pallets, opened the lone Ultra box, saw a Wing Saber, Sky Shadow, and Menasor! I quickly ran to the car (after paying, of course), drove to work, logged on, and here I am. I thought I might actually be first, for once.....ha! I would love to post a pic of the receipt, but my camera's at home and I can't get to it until many hours from now. Ah, well.....Menasor!

    I am confused on this part 'cause, to me, this Wal-mart is in Fremont alone and is not the one in Milpitas or Union City, it's the one just off the west side of 680 S. (I was driving from Dublin to SJ). BTW, I need to PM you with details on a new local website that might just change our toy-collecting lives around here. I'll get that out to you soon, Razerwire.

    Well, it's not in Dublin (although there is one in Pleasanton), but I never saw this one either until recently because the area it's in is a bit lower than the highway and trees/other stores tend to obscure it. It's the Durham Rd. exit off 680. Check it out sometime or just let me know what you're looking for and I'll keep my eyes peeled!
