    Ok. So, EVERYONE know that the boxes of the toys say that they have a street date of the 30th. Well I was at work and we got some ROTF figures in on the trunk last night but the computer system said that they were a "feature for week 16" (walmart's "year" starts feb.1st). But May 30th is week 18... Idk what this means. If they moved the date up or if they system is just screwed up....

    Week 16 would probably mean the preview figures then.

    Call me crazy, but wouldn't it make more sense to ask your boss than random interweb dwellers (and they don't get more random than this lot)?

    That was what I was thinking. Why release the preview and the regular figures the same week?

    Ah, fair do's. In that case, the answer is either "preview figures" or "a wizard did it."

    Ditto. If they are indeed the preview figures, then I'll be checking my Walmart for Soundwave. Don't care too much for the Bee. I believe they are packed in a case of 8 with even distribution in the case.

    Yup, all over the chicago land area. I'm guessing that these are for the preveiw wave though. By chance though, did you happen to pop the top to see what is inside?? I'm very curious to know.

    Are the previews out yet?
    Why do I suddenly get a mental image of you rolling around naked in a load of TF figures? :p

    :lol 

    But you got me all wrong. Wait to snap that mental image a couple of weeks later, once the cash has come in. Then you'll get your Naked Roll of Joy. ;) 



    "Naked Roll of Joy" either sounds like a questionable kids fruit roll-up, or an adult themed bakery's new pita wrap.

    Easy way to settle it; scan them at a register. If they go through, throw the confetti and line the shelves brother. If you get the epic failure buzz and the angry DO NOT SELL message, then pout, sigh and send an angry message to corporate signed off as your boss or a co-worker that you hate. :)
