    I went to wal-mart today knowing that the revenge of the fallen toys wouldnt be out yet, and did all my usuall stuff there and thougt, hell, why not just look at the transformers section. And wada you know, they had some rotf toys! They had bumblebee and soundwave set up, they had tons of em, but that was it for the delux class, they had some other stuff too for rotf, so i looked for some others, all they had was bumblebee and soundwave tho, so i picked bumblebee, i was sooooo excited, (i failed to bring my camera, sorry) i thought i would share with you all my new toy and all, so i went to pay for him (the price tag said 11.38 or something, and i scaned him too and i said the same) and the machine wouldnt ring it up! So we tried a bunch of stuff and eventually they called some guy to take a look and he was a tf fan too, he said he would sell it to me if he could but they couldnt till midnight, and i wanted to blow up that fucking wal-mart....

    so thats the end of my story, this happen to anyone else?

    You do realize this is happening to everyone, correct?

    And "Wal-Mart=Shit" is the understatement of the century.

    well, I dunno if it's thread-worthy, but they are shit.

    That stuff is the preview wave. It's supposed to be out before the release date for everything else. There's no reason they shouldn't be able to sell it.

    His avatar is made of all sorts of win!

    edit: Are BB and Soundwave part of the preview wave with the boxes marked 'Do not sell until 5/15?' If so, shouldn't the computer have allowed them to sell it?

    I don't understand why people become disgruntle over plastic toys! I mean, it clearly has a release date. Store can be fine for sellling early and why should stores take the hit for the impatients!

    granted, but this stuff is already past it's release date. There's no reason for them not to sell it.

    It's hilarious how people (this one's probably my age if his sn is correct) get angry about waiting one day about a couple of pieces of plastic and paint


    Wal-Mart is shit though

    I was going to pass on Starscream but the poseability of the new mold is very tempting. Plus, he's out at UK retail already. :)
