    While at a local Walmart tonight I came across these:

    [​IMG]

    They were part of a pallet that on one side had Fast Action Battlers and the other side appeared to be all Movie Deluxe Exclusives. I have no camera on me at the time so I couldn't get a picture of the pallet, which was sealed till my girlfriend and I opened it up (Thanks KnightSaberAmi :thumb ). Also Included with Fracture and the others were the first wave of Walmart exclusives, Big Daddy, Grindor, Jolt and Divebomb. Happy Hunting.

    Didn't see this in the search. My apologies if this has been posted already.

    oh my this is delicious news. I've been waiting for the new ones.
    But I don't think my store has any empty pegs..... I'll check anyway.

    Your Trypticon looks so happy to see them.

    Cool, hopefully I can get a Big Daddy since I never saw any (and only one Grindcore) the first time. Might get Crankcase, too.

    A pallet w/fast-action battlers?
    and with the last set of exclusives.
    That's unexpected.
    The exclusives may sell out,
    but the battlers will clog the stores for a while.
    The ones that are on the shelves now aren't selling.

    Anyway, good find.

    You've got to be kidding me!

    I stopped at my WM a couple nights ago and they only had two cases of TF in. One said Animated so I got a clerk to open it. Just wave 3 stuff so I left them. The other said Fast Action Battlers so I didn't even bother...

    Did I miss out on a sighting?!?!

    Tell me about it. Maybe it will be next weekend before I find them since I'm running low on money also. They do look nice though. I think I will use them as Classics characters like I may do with the first, something I don't normally do since I like to keep characters in their released continuity.

    Not likely. Motor_Master said it was a whole pallet, not a case, like the Iron Man or Hulk displays Wal-Mart put out not too long ago for those movies. Some stores may get them and put them on an end cap though. Those may look like the last display they had for the movie Deluxe exclusives. Hopefully they won't be hard to find.

    A second chance to get the first set of Wal-Mart deluxes is surprising but very welcome indeed! Fast Action Battlers, not so much. I'm amazed they've disappeared from my local Wal-Mart the first time around.
