    As the topic says. I've just realised that the US version of MP Starscream should be coming any moment now (if I'm not wrong), and I was wondering if ANY store has preorders open still? I can't find anything on ebay, and the usual stores here don't have it either. I'm getting worried...

    Anyone can toss me a lead? Much appreciated!

    BBTS should have the pre-order up and going.


    Unfortunately, because of Wal-Mart's extremely spotty "exclusives" distribution, I might have to go this route too. In my portion of IL (north of Chicago), Alt Ravage / Rumble never appeared ... the Robot Heroes 5-pack was seen at 1 store over 3 counties.

    I'm convinced my Walmart doesn't order toys. Period. I refuse to pay BBTS's 100% markup, I'm hoping a fellow board member can hook a guy up. Of course I'll be looking around at some other Walmarts as well.

    Considering that this is a higher priced Walmart exclusive they will probably want to offer it on walmart.com to sell more.

    Odd, as I don't see any page for Screamer on BBTS at all o__o.

    I just made my order with Action HQ though. I do hope they're decent.

    G1 Masterpiece Screamer ain't gonna be out until at least November, though I think I remember hearing that it was pushed back even further (just a rumor though, don't think it had official backing).

    I wouldn't order from BBTS though, the markup for it is ridiculous (and it supports scalping, which is ftl). I'm sure Walmart.com will have it up for preorder in a month or so maybe sooner (unless it already is).

    they took it off their listing.. but one of the threads here has a direct link.. the page is there.. they just took down from their main page.... if you're bent on ordering it from BBTS.. i would email them first and ask if they're still taking orders since they took it "off" their site.

    Sorry. don't have that page handy right now

    Wow, thanks for the help you guys :D . But yeah, considering how BBTS' prices tend to be on the high side, and the fact that they tend to take longer to get stuff, I might go for action hq.

    At least, for my first piece...

    I asked them about it, and they'll first list him when he's officially on hasbro's main page... that was the answer i got.

    I'm in North Chicago also and the WalMarts here are terrible at exclusives. The only WalMart to have Ravage and Rumble was out in the far southwest suburbs. I cannot fathom how the stores do their ordering.

    Has anyone ever actually confronted Walmart about this? It's a terrible shame that Joel does this to the people in the area to acquire product.
