    Found the 1st wave of ROTF deluxe toys in the American Fork, Utah Walmart. They were stocking the shelves, so I had a chance to get the case assortments. 2 BB's, 2 Sideways, 2 Sideswipes and 1 each of Rampage and Breakaway. (at least that's what was in the cases they were unloading) I didn't buy Bumblebee, already got enough of that mold. They were also available at another Walmart just a few miles away, so looks like it's hunting time again!

    It'll be really hilarious if all these Deluxes/Voyagers/Leaders keep slipping out now, and Soundwave doesn't make it out till either the 15th or possibly even the 30th.

    Not really living up to the whole "Preview Figure" thing... :redface2:

    Revision 1 would most likely be the preview figures, Soundwave and Bumblebee. I don't recall if the cases said anything about revision(s) but I wasn't looking for anything like that either.

    yeah i think it said WAV1 RV2 which if my last movie memory serves me right is wave 1 revison 2, but your guess is probably right because i saw no Soundwave in the box

    What in the hell?!

    What happened to the "30th of May" release date"? :confused: 

    When the first movie came out 2 years ago, I can recall Hasbro making the stores stick to the release date "or else" :lol  But this time, Did Hasbro throw that "release date thing" out the window?

    Or maybe it's all about selling as many toys as possible, no matter what... :lol

    wal mart let that slide in the computers. :jawdropper: 

    This economy is hurting everyone I suppose. They have to sell something.

    But i'm guessing wal mart will try and do a section mod to get the tags to match up before may 30th.

    Finish the fight. revenge is coming. Buy out your store's entire ROTF mainline inventory for troop building. Search your feelings you know it to be true! Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.

    Bring It!

    Well since Fred Meyer(sp?) broke the street date yesterday, it's totally fair for Wal-Mart to follow suit.

    I want all four of these, but I'll wait a while longer before rushing out and wasting the gas searching for them. The stores around my way all held to the release date for Movie 1 figs.

    well theres one store that'll be getting a phone call from hasbros trade sales dept.

    There is most likely a legal clause in the sales agreement that hasbro can now pursue too.

    People finding places selling them early should probably not post where they bought them if they want to keep purchasing from there
