    Ebay:
    So I called my local Wal-Mart with the MP Skywarp UPC, and they informed me that they had 18 in stock. I get there and of course they are not out on the shelves yet. So I ask someone thats doing inventory in toys (who was shockingly helpful), if he can find it. He looks it up on his scanner and takes me back to the (now closed) lawn & garden section. When we found them he double checks his scanner and tells me that they are "non replenishable". So when they are gone, they are gone!

    So just a little word of advice for those that are on the fence about him, I wouldn't wait and hope for him to go on clearance like Starscream did. It seems (at least in my area) the Wal-Mart is doing a much better job of evenly distributing this exclusive.

    For those that haven't seen him in person yet he is a very matte black unlike the Takara version

    The only way I got one was on ebay via another board member who happened to get an extra one and sold it at cost. Screamer was getting scalped so heavily in my area that one of the employess told me that there was some lady going around with a box cutter helping to open cases as they came in and buying them all on the spot. I <explative deleted> hate Walmart.

    Random wallmart minions aren't likely to be familiar with every forthcoming product, combined with their missing-link IQs that means you're unlikely to get the skinny if you start grabbing them as they're replenishing the pre-school hunting acessories isle and asking then when you can buy mpsw.

    Oh no the lady wasn't putting anything away in restocking she was just going though isles and taking notes on what stock they have etc. So I guess basically she was wondering what is left in the isles I was thinking. So thats when I caught her was when she was doing some inventory on the stock in the store with her computer thing.

    That sucks! I don't know if it was scalpers in my area too (more than likely) but I never even saw ONE. Within 4 "local" Wal-Marts, a couple Targets and K-Marts, etc I never came across one the entire time he would have been on the shelves. In fact I've yet to see one in person to this day.

    bwuah? of course it is limited it is a STORE EXCLUSIVE not a MAINLINE RELEASE figure.....take your movie bashing someowhere else, it ain't applicable here....besides those "buck teeth/dog face" figures are making hasbro MONEY that they use to give a little extra to the fans (ala more new mold universe figures)

    so think before you bash

    I honestly think Wal-Warp will be easier to get a hold of than Wal-Scream. Starscream is a much more memorable and iconic character than Skywarp, and therefore more likely to be scooped up by casual fans.
