    I decided to swing by Wal-mart on my way home from work this morning. There were a few deluxe figures on top of the pegs. SInce I like Jazz, I decided to try and buy him. I figured the worst they could do Is tell me I couln't buy him. I'd say ok and leave without a fuss. To my surprise it rang up! I left Brawl and Bonecrusher behind. So if you find any in the aisles, give it a shot. You never know.

    You can buy deluxes anywhere in the US. It's the other stuff that's still street-dated.

    I actually snagged my Blackout at Wal-Mart the other night. It came up as restricted, but the nice lady in charge of the self checkout aisle overrode the block and let me buy it. They had two Ratchets left on the shelf, which I can almost guarantee are gone or pulled by now.

    I got my Bonecrusher yesterday. Found all the boxes in the back, cracked 'em open and took only one(cause I only had $10 spare), but I told the store manager that he could have them on the floor, but as of today they are still in the back :(  what a dick!!

    I went to the Target near me in Stillwater, Mn... They had ALL of the pegs out for EVERY TF Movie figure, but they have a large "COMING SOON" sign hanging in front of it...

    Sad thing? A friend was there a few days ago, when they had them out... They had them out for a day, then pulled them all!!!! EVEN THE DELUXE FIGURES!!! *#@$!%.... Grrrr......

    Well, soon enough I guess... Then I'll actually have the money for them!

    Has anyone tried ringing it up at the "price checkers" placed in the aisles?

    I did it today on some Cyber Slammers I found and it said "Please See an Associate for Help"

    I ended up leaving them all. Seen at 2 different WM in Southern Illinois. Decided to wait for bigger movie robos.

    Glad you were able to get it to work for you!!!
