    FYI

    Just returned from two Wal-Marts in the Oklahoma City area, and the restock is in progress. Voyagers (Prime, Megs, Ratchet, Blackout), Deluxe (Dreadwing, Payload, Dropkick, Final Battle Jazz, Longarm, Recon Barricade), and Leader (Brawl and Megatron).

    Might want to check in your area to see if similar activity is taking place.

    I knew they'd be past his wave by the time saturation happened. Glad I bought a couple of them already.

    Dunno, didn't see any. Either the cases are being packed differently, or the demand for BB and Arcee is strong enough where they are getting snagged right when someone sees them. I figure it is the latter.

    Saw one Wal-mart out of three today that had the new wave of deluxes. I find it stupid that Arcee would get packed in it, but not Bumblebee. I passed on all of them.

    Possible explanation:

    The .0006 case assortment contains Arcee, Dreadwing, and 2 x Bumblebee 09.

    The .0007 case assortments with the new Jazz, Barricade, Payload, Towline, only has 1 Bumblebee 09.

    As someone mentioned earlier, maybe they're done with the .0006 cases and only shipping out to retailers the .0007.

    Which would explain why Kohl's and KB are getting the .0006 (wave 3?) in large amounts...

    Which means I will never find a 08 BB cause I have neither where I live.

    The prices on Ebay are dropping like crazy. Soon 08 BB will be completely worthless & scalpers won't bother with him. Just have patience, you'll find him soon.

    Stopped by 1 Walmart today, and they restocked like crazy. No new movie stuff tho, just tons of Cybertron & Alternators.
    They also had a new SWTF doublepack with Vader & Kenobi. Kenobi's ship has an exclusive blue paintjob.

    Checked for Camshaft or Mirage just in case but no luck

    A local target in NY had the new deluxes as well as Leader Brawl and I was able to finally get an '08 BB. Felt good to wait. F*ck the scalpers.

    Unfortunately, the Alternators case seems to only be Ops/Skids/Rico/Rollbar...I detest that assortment.
