    Was just in Wal-Mart and saw a massive TF: A floor display. One side had lots of wave 1 deluxes, but the other side had voyagers. Saw lots of Grimlocks, Primes, and at least 8-10 BLITZWINGS!! Yes a floor display with lots of Blitzwings.

    Another display had the Bumblebee 3pack on one side and that Ultimate movie Bumblebee.

    Sadly I didn't have a camera on me to take pictures. Thought I'd give everyone a heads up on the Blitzwing.

    I was just at Wal-Mart, and I had them bring out the two pallets that were back there. One had the Bumblebees, and the other had Fracture, Getaway, Crankcase, Grindcore, Big Daddy, and Divebomb on one side, and animated activators or whatever they are on the other..

    Hmm...

    I never understand why they put old stuff out on displays like that...they should be putting at least wave 3 and wave 4 deluxes out, not wave 1!

    It may have had Wave 2 mixed in. I just looked for Swoop and Sentinel. Didn't see any. I just remember Ratchet, Lockdown, Bumblebee, and Prime.

    I'll check again on my way home. I'll take my phone and snap a few pics too to make people happy...

    I rechecked and there was only wave 1 Deluxes. But there was well over a dozen Blitzwings, so that is good news..

    I didn't even look at the Ult BBs at the display I saw. I know it didn't have a price up on it, because if it were $35 (or even $25!!) I would have grabbed one.

    Except for the Animated display, depending on how that looked, all the display stuff was already mentioned in the Wal-Mart Deluxes thread. Even Ultimate Bumblebee for cheap was already mentioned (but not frontpaged).

    And bandwidth problems shamwidth problems. Use Photobucket or ImageShack.
