    I stopped by Walmart in Watertown, WI today and they had the Transformers arch display over the toy aisle, replacing the SpiderMan one, had a big cutout of Barricade and Optimus on each side, but of course, no toys out or in stock.

    EDIT:
    I stopped by again this morning, still no figures, but this time I had my digital camera with me :D  New pics!

    Yeah, I saw the little 'build-list' today while talking to the assit. manager. Looks pretty cool. It'll be a welcome sight to see in person though.

    Hell, I won't ever see these in my store. They haven't even gotten in classics Devastator or the exclusive alts yet.

    Who came up with that Prime pose? More importantly, who decided that it was cool enough to keep using...?

    Love the Barricade, though. ^_^

    For some reason, I have feeling that this display will eventually be a part of SamiWCP collection!

    Wouldn't it be great if they sold the Barricade car model?
    I mean as a regular car, not a police vehicle...i'd buy it!

    Good luck with that; I haven't seen a single TF in our local ASDA since Beast Wars.

    No kidding! I hate that pose! Why that was chosen over the myriad of poses he does is beyond me. Hell the one where he is just standing is awesome, but nooooo they have to use the one that sucks....

    I wonder if I will see that in my local Wal-Mart. The TF aisle has not changed in months, and we never got classics Devistator.
