    If I am goign to get the Wal-Mart Exclusive Powerglide and Skyfall, should I order from TRU as well?

    I have Darkwind, and for some reason want all the domestic repaints.

    On Powerglide I passed up one on %50 off in store, when I picked up Inferno and Darkwind, did not have enough left for him.

    Should I get all the repaints for no reason?

    Also, is Wal-Mart Powerglide is pretty close to original toys color?

    thanks

    Wal Mart Powerglide is the closest of the three to the colour layout on the Generation 1 character, although I personally prefer my full red Takara version. The gray on the arms looks a bit off in my opinion.

    As far as what is to get, that is totally up to you. I personally only get the toys that interest me. If I can find something that appeals - design, paint job, even just the fact it's a cool character - then I'll get them.

    You still pay a lot less and that makes up for it in my opinion.

    I own the Takara Powerglide and wish I hadn't caved on it. The Walmart exclusive looks MUCH closer to the G1 character's paint sheme and IMO the arms break up the barrage of red found on the Takara version.

    Though in answer to your actual question I'd ask first if you enjoyed the molds in the first place and if you have the extra money to burn. If you answer yes on both accounts then go for it.

    Little off-topic, but I was wondering if the 50% off Ultras sale pertains to the exclusives (i.e. Darkwind and Countdown) as well.

    Not supposed to, but people have been able to get employees to manually punch in the discount in-store, as they -are- Universe Ultras, the SKN is just different.

    dit

    Ditto on the Darkwing, I got the guy to in person, he said that it was an exclusive and not part of the sale, but some clever employ had taken away the Ultra's normal spot and had just stuck one in the Powerglide/Ultra sale place.

    He walked back to look for the spot for exclusives but there was none so he decided to give it to me for the $12.99, when I went back later they had reset the isle for 2 Ultra locations instead, silly employee.
