    it is the same ones that have been at dollar general for 2 years.....i wished they would give us something different here, but so far we haven't got any scouts in.....

    if i go to my wal-mart and see them, even though having all six (multiples of some of them), i'll still get more backstops, i love the little guy :)

    I'm one of those people. Personally, I've never held any interest in the Cybertron scouts, but now that I have an almost-complete E. Landmine my interest in Brushguard has suddenly increased...

    But are the back-on-the-shelves Cyb. Scouts just Brakedown, Backstop, and Brushguard (hey, they all have "B" names!), or are there more? I'd have to think that there's at least someting new with that group.

    Why? It's not new. So Walmart will sell these on Black Friday, but these have been sold before at other retailers.

    It reminds me of last Christmas when Wal-Mart stocked some Universe 2.0 voyagers and ultras to fill shelf space. I think voyagers were around $11.00 and ultras at $19.00(?)

    That sounds about right. Walmart probably took those scouts off the Hands of Hasbro for shelf fillers for the Holiday season. They're not even that good.

    As far as I know these are not Black Friday items. Just run of the mill please-put-me-out-because-I-gather-dust-in-the-back items. $4.00 a piece also.
