    I went to my local wal-mart last night and asked for the store manager. I know its extreme but I want my toy! After a few minutes he came to meet with me. He looks upset probably because the only time they get called by a customer is for a complaint. To his relief I asked him if he had any insight to when the MP Starscream was coming out. He said he was supprised that no one had asked him about it since he is actually a big TF fan. According to him they are getting it in Sat night (11/4) to be put up for Sundays business (11/5). The only reason he was aware of this is because he's been waiting for it as well and had been looking into it. I was supprised at how cool this guy was. That being said, take this for what it's worth. I'm not getting my hopes to high (oh hell, thats a lie). I hope he was correct or received correct info. Please post any finds you come across.

    But my question is when will the first in-store sighting be?

    I doubt the dates you listed will be FIRM.

    If anyone wants to start a pool for the first "in-store sighting w/ proof" now would be the time...

    I'm guessing it will be here on Oct. 29th (frontpaged)

    I agree on this not being totally set in stone, but at least it's something.

    I could never have the balls to summon a store manager for a toy question.
    But glad someone does :) , and thanks for the info.

    I'm a retail store manager so I figured what the heck. He's either going to have no clue what I'm talking about or actually have some info.

    And considering the history of the St. Cloud Wal-Mart, we probably will never even get it.

    I find it hilarious how people are getting so worked up over a repaint. What's so exciting? It's just an old ass toy repainted! Nobody got that worked up over the movie Starscream repainted in G1 colors. Geez, calm down! They'll be collecting dust & marked down to clearance prices in no time.

    The fact that it's Masterpeice Starscream only in G1 colours and at an affordable price? And nobody got worked up over movie G1 Starscream because the head was horrid and the mold looked terrible in G1 colours. (TC pulled it off much better, though nothing beats the original.)

    Basicaly, it's what Masterpeice SS always should have been. Not that sea green peice of crap colour sceme of the original.

    I guess you're the only one. :p  j/k
    It's the best G1 Starscream we'll ever get! And movie SS(G1 deco, or whatever) doesn't even compare…

    I agree with Split Lip, the movie one was horrid and i only bought it cause i'm a completionist. I hope i can grab Starscream, because if i get to walmart late i won't be able to find him for weeks~~

    i ask all the time.got my '09 bee that way.but remember that just because they get him then,
    1-all stores might not have him then.
    2-they might not put him out right away.
    3-he'll sell damn quick.
    let the hunt commence.

    It hits before Christmas when Transformers are their most popular.

    It won't be as hard to find, but in some markets I doubt you'll see it.
