    Today I was at the local walmart and they had ( I kid you not ) about 15 each of both Ramjet and Skywarp; hopefully they've learned their lesson and have managed to fix their distribution network; so we can get better distribution of the store exclusives (I'm talking to you MP Starscream).
    Because I do need that MP Skywarp:p

    This is not really a distribution issue. Walmart bases how many units a store gets on how well the line does in that particular location. So if for exmple star wars toys do not sell at a particular walmart stores they may not get the exclusives at all.

    One of my walmarts got a huge endcap of the seeker exclusives. The other only got a few cases. The one with the huge endcap always has a bigger presentation of tfs. Basically if your walmart sucks at selection/distribution they will always sucks at it

    My Walmart is privately owned (didn't know they could do that...), in a very very small oilfield town. Distribution kinda sucks, but mostly because the market isn't here. :( 

    Sucks a lot. It's the only place in town to buy Transformers.

    At least I got about 6 walmarts within driving distance to check, at least one of them is bound to get some figures.
    Fingers crossed, MP Skywarp, Leade Jetfire and the insecticons are the only ones left on my must have list.
