    Just stumbled across the last 4 RGs (High Score, Meantime, Wiretap V20, and Night Beat [7?]) at walmart.com. I'm not sure officially what waves these are, but I think it's the third and fourth.

    There's something funky with High Score's listing right now, though. He has an "Add to Cart" button in the list from a search for "transformers", but his individual listing shows him as "not sold online". He IS orderable, but Site-to-Store shipping isn't selectable, unlike the rest of the RGs. Since I refuse to pay $4 shipping for a $7 toy, I'm waiting to order him until they fix the listing. Ordered the others, though. I also emailed the site's customer service folks about the listing.

    Have at 'em!

    I once bought a 15 dollar basic online that I saw at the store the next day. GOOD TIMES.

    I think Zoom Out and Booster were actually wave 2, but showed up most places at the same time as wave one, much like Deluxes Bonecrusher and Swindle.

    EDIT: Entertainment Earth confirms that HS100 & Meantime first show up in wave 3, with NB7 & WTV20 debuting in wave 4. Oddly, though, they list wave 1 as Longview/Spy Shot 6/Powerup VT6/Spped Dial 800/Booster VT10/Zoom Out 25X, and wave 2 as only the first four. :peoples: 

    If you're going to use Site-to-Store, there's really no reason to wait. Just place a second order when HS gets corrected.

    Ordered, but I'm having them delivered to my house... Anything at the closest Walmart that involves Customer Service takes too long, so the $6 in shipping was worth it...

    WTF are they doing to the listings? High Score's finally shows him as in stock, but now, the only one eligible for Site-to-Store shipping is Night Beat.

    None of them are eligible for Site-To-Store shipping the last time I checked. I guess I will wait and hopefully find them at retail in two weeks. That's a good thing for me since I'm low on funds until September 7th.

    Now Meantime is eligible for S-t-S, and Night Beat and High Score are "temporarily out of stock". I think they're messing with us.

    Wire Tap V20, Mean Time, and Night Beat are all back in stock with free site-to-store shipping. High Score is still out of stock. I ordered Wire Tap V20 and Night Beat to complete my Real Gear collection, assuming there aren't anymore that we don't know about.

    High Score is now listed as in stock. None of the Real Gear have site-to-store shipping anymore. The order I placed last night is now on backorder.

    It didn't show it in the big list, but when I went to HS's individual listing, S-t-S was available, so I just placed an order. It seems completely random whether S-t-S is available or not. Heck, just now, some of the Robot Heroes 2-packs had it available.

    That's bizarre, given that they're all listed as in stock. My order of the other three from Saturday is listed as shipped, but it doesn't say when it did, and S-t-S orders don't have tracking. (A fact I don't understand, since I learned when I ordered the exclusive Robot Heroes pack that -- at least to my W*M -- S-t-S orders ship by UPS. Really makes me wonder how they can offer it for free, though.)

    I ordered these Saturday and I'm yet to recieve a shipping confirmation... Are they usually this slow?

    I might just cancel and try to find them in stores if it's gonna take this long...

    EDIT: Scratch that... Just got the shipping confirmation a few minutes ago

    They now have some of the new Fast Action Battlers up. Unfortunately no site-to-store shipping on these but with the way things are going they could add it later.

    Megatron
    Blackout
    Frenzy


    The status of my order is now shipped so I hope to have them by the end of next week. I will go tomorrow to pickup my Voyager Optimus Prime.
