    I find it happens here more than anywhere I had been. At the walmart in fairview I used to find lots of the crappy versions of energon bots placed in packages of classics figures. At a ross out there I even found a fully customized optimus prime that had been swapped in a package, which was a very strange thing. It seems like someone is back to their old tricks.

    Weird. All that just for Kup's head? I don't see what they hoped to gain from doing that.

    Looks like they snagged the head and one of the blasters as well.

    No, they put both blasters back in; they just flipped them around or swapped them with each other. (The handle of the second one can be seen at the right of the picture over Kup's left shoulder.)

    I'm still wondering as to what custom might specifically require Kup's noggin....

    Yeah, its weird. Other than the arms, I thought the head was the other worst part of this figure. The new head made me almost want it, but the arms needed paint or something to break them up.

    EDIT: Both blasters were in there. It looked in tact beyond the head.

    Well the body is a great Orion Pax custom piece, but the head is strickly Kup's.

    I don't see the end game here, unless someone was just trying to prove that they could do it and get away with it for the fun of it.

    TRU on South Lindbergh had 3 TLK Mission to Cybertron Planet Cybertron figures as of last night, I picked up one of them. At checkout it gave a warning of cannot be sold until Oct 8 but the manager overrode it.

    Once had a classics starscream packaged in a ROTF starscream box. SO wanted to get it but the markup on the voyager size made me leave it. Got a $7.77 acid storm instead.

    Any TLK wave-2 out yet?

    Hey fellow TF fans. Visiting family in Cuba this week and stopped by Cuba and Sullivan Walmart stores. Based on what you've been talking about the past few days I'd say there is nothing of note at either store. No TLK wave 2 deluxes or voyagers. Still trying to track down a TLK Megatron for a Stop Motion I'm working on. Wasn't much of an update but I thought I'd share!

    Columbia Target has two of each Blitzwing and Octone. No new deluxes or legends though. Still looking for Perceptor.

    Found (and bought) one TLK Voyager Megatron at the Rock Road WalMart during lunch.

    Left one TLK Voyager Hound on the shelf (well, technically, balanced on top of half-a-dozen-plus OPs and Grimlocks).

    Snagged a Seaspray at Jefferson City Target today. 3 more remaining and 4 Cosmos. Didn't see any of the new TLK VOYAGERS. OR ANYTHING ELSE OF INTEREST

    Shoot, I was just there on Monday and there was nada. Hopefully I can make a trip down again this week in time. Columbia his zilch for legends, except for one Kickback that's been holding on at our Target.

    Ugh. I was looking for one of those. Figured you would come to "my" Walmart and buy the last one on my birthday. :p
