    So I have the day off from work and drive around to 5 different places trying to score a Cybertron Soundwave.....

    I get to place #5 which is a Wal-Mart and the damn Soundwave is open and some ass STOLE Laserbeak!!!! All day of hunting and 3 different towns and I FINALLY find one and some jerk ganked Laserbeak, damn it, damn it damn it!

    I am so pissed off right now!

    No Soundwave for me!

    Maybe you should ask security if they got it on camera.... They could probably have a deserving welcome for them when they come back.

    hmmm.... seeing that Soundwave is rare almost makes me wish I had picked him up at my Walmart. oh well.
    Does anyone know if they'll release a "Dark Soundwave" in Soundblaster colors, cause I'd rather have that anyways.

    Dude, most of them are busy enough trying to remember to breathe and stand up. My first job was at Wal-Mart, and they had some poor senile veteran who would randomly accost people and tell them about Ko-rea. Woe unto you if you had to wait in line at the service desk. He would sing spirituals that only sometimes had words in the middle of the aisles. No lie.

    Or how about when I finally quit and went back a few weeks later to pick up my last paycheck and I stopped to say goodbye to a nice old lady who was a greeter. I had worked in close proximity to her and chatted with her for over a year. I chatted with her for a few minutes, and right about when I was about to leave she said, "You know, you look so familiar..." Oy...

    As to theft, they'll tell people to leave and never come back, and maybe even nab people at the door when they inevitably do come back if they're large scale thieves. But if you tell them about a missing Laserbeak they'll laugh at you if they're honest, or tell you they'll do everything they can if not.

    I don't shop there anymore due to the way they treat their employees.
