    I did a search, so hopefully I didn't skip over this.

    Was running some late night errands, and found ROTF Fast Action Battlers Bumblebee and Jolt, and Power Bots Bumblebee and Megatron. Didn't purchase, but I did take pictures.

    Sorry for the quality... the camera on my phone isn't so hot.

    This was at the north Scottsdale, AZ Wal-mart.

    Who is behind FAB Bumblebee? There's a Decepticon symbol on it.

    Ah crap. I got so excited that I didn't even look!

    Megatron, maybe? I think he's wave 1...

    Can't believe I missed that!

    No preview figures, no Robot Heroes, no Legends class... I was just hoping for a Samurai Prowl, but they didn't have that either.

    Sounds like the first assortment FABs, odds are there's an Optimus back there too.

    Nice find!

    The Buckeye AZ Walmart had these also. I attempted to purchase them and I was rejected. They claimed they were being re-called. I was going to argue with her stupidity but decided against it

    Least we know what they look like on the shelf. When is the street date for the toys? (not just the preview figures)?

    Hey, I'm not complaining!

    Bring on the Leaders, damnit! Once I get all three of the Leaders, and the Deluxe Ravage, I am DONE with the ROTF line.

    I won't be repeating my mistake from the 2007 film's line!

    Bring on the Leaders!

    I love it when overzealous Wal-Mart stockboys put product out before the street date. I can't tell you how many times my wife and I have gone to the register at Wally World and have gotten that same line of BS ablout "re-calls".

    Now if it had been at Target, they would have just sold it to you... ain't no such thing as "street date" at the Target!

    Delightful Wal Mart. Bravo. Wasting shelf space with stuff you refuse to sell.:throw 

    Look how barren the rest of that section is. The retailers and this "do not replenish"
    toy drought the've imposed would have driven me crazy without hasbro toy shop.

    Well their filling the space. But will be yellowed by flourescent lighting by may 30th with the batteries drained by pre-teens.

    I saw these at the Walmart in Antelope, CA, and I swear, Megatron looks even more retarded than Mudflap and Skids. He has zero chin, an overbite, and his head is really out of proportion.... very funny looking.... Phrases are cool, tho.
    These may not be exact quotes, but it's to the same effect...
    "Only I will lead!"
    "Remember me?!"
    "Surrender to me!"

    Bumblebee was adorably cutesy, and talked in the radio-clip style from the first movie.

    Cool gimmick tho, is when you fire the gun arm, it makes a blasting sound and you see the gun barrel "recoil"... very spiffy.
