    Yah, I saw these at a local store recently but failed to get any more excited about them.

    I wish Hasbro would have some kind of contest where the best custom jobs, like Stockade-into-Brawn, would get turned into commercial toys.

    Not so awesome if two of them aren't available. Strangely, the two I want most...

    Far less strangely, the two more short-packed in the bunch.

    I'm sure they'll have them soon. Isn't it common for new stuff in these stores to be listed out of stock at first?

    Not to mention that Walmart.com restocks a lot more than other online stores. Generally, if they're in the current assortment and Walmart.com has them out-of-stock, just wait a few days.

    SON OF A BITCH!

    I just went to the newly opened (as of today) Wal-Mart, thinking that it's a BRAND NEW STORE that they'd have them... NO. They had a CRAPLOAD of the wave one movie figures. I've never seen so many old style Bumblebees before... but NONE OF THE EXCLUSIVES.

    So I came back to order the two that were available, only to find them gone...

    *sigh* I am NOT a hunter. I just want the figures I want with minimal stress and not paying a fortune...

    It happens... As exclusives are announced, people expect them. I have been checking Walmart.com regularly for the Robot Heroes 5-pack.

    It happens. The only thing they could do is allow you to pre-order or Back-order stock.

    Or, request them on the boards. These things are surprisingly not hard to find if your store carries them in the first place. Even I've held several Grindcores before. Someone should be able to get these to you for cost plus shipping.

    I know Jolt and Divebomb are still available in my store. I 'm almost sure there are more in the back. I picked up mine while they were stocking them. Several displays of them were put up on the hangers and an endcap. Then I saw them open a box wich had the older deluxes (not Allpspark). Those non-Allspark one are getting put out to fill the space on the endcap.

    They have over a dozen of the Robot Heroes 'The Final Battle' on the endcap also.

    Gonna swing by a Wal-mart or two on the way to playing Army tomorrow. If that doesn't work out, maybe the website'll work out.

    Closest Walmart is a 30 minute ride. Not worth it to me to find an empty shelf as I usually do in Saddle Brook.
