CASE FRESH!!!! i searched online and only found 4 each of the following multipack r/h. ranging from 24.99 to 34.99 so i am assuming they are brand brand brand new!

    2. robot heroes 7 pack "battle for the all spark"
    it is labled "revenge of the fallen" it includes:
    autobot ratchet
    optimus prime
    sam witwicky

    Yea, the sightings forums are probably the best place. But you do raise a good point for some of the newer members (which may be obvious to some, but less to some newer folks). If you have time to do it, between about 10pm and 1am is the best time to hit up Walmarts in your area. Most of the overnight stock crews (I have found) are very nice, and helpful, and will tell you what days the big loads of toys come in. If not, it will only take you a week to figure out the best days on your own. If you fear scalpers, or really need your plastic crack fix, learn the stock schedule, and hit those nights. I never had a problem when I was trying to find GI Joes for my cousin when figures like Flint were hard to find.

    Though their souls may be dark and empty, scalpers don't seem to like the darkness that much (atleast around me).

    yeah i know what you mean... i have been collecting for over 20 years and just within the past 6-8 years have gotten antsy and gotten into the forums. i mean yes it would be nice to flip an ic twins for 60.00......lol... but its not that much... i posted the other night and had a guy pm me about the ic twins. i offered to go get it for him for 20.00 shipped... he paypal'd it within 5 minutes....he ended up giving me 5.00 extra (which was cool and i am greatful, but wasn't necessary) but i sent it out monday afternoon...13.00 incl tax, 5.00 shipping and 2-3 for gas!... not much of a profit margin there......lol but if i can make a coupld bucks here and there... its cool and gives me more initiative to go out and get the htf stuff......to help out the people who want what their stores can't/don't have! and its cheaper and quicker than ebay!

    sorry... scout jolt...... no... i hadn't seen the supreme devastator up close to realize it. had seen it online and in pics but not up close as to look and see the actual differences. but at 99.00 it was alot cheaper than i have seen it online. i will probably go back and get it tomorrow or later on this week hopefully.

    well i apologize for being mistaken. its the deluxe class jolt (had to look on the bottom of my ic twins to find out....excuse me. no need to be a smart ass about it. you might have known about it, but there are others who probably didn't. i didn't know that is why i made the post and reference to it. if you already knew it, then why did you post?

    to let you know? to make conversation?

    it is odd that someone could call a deluxe a voyager or a scout. but, meh. when I took my initial shopping list to walmart on may 29th when they would pull stock out of the stock room if you told them what you wanted, I had sideswipe listed under the "leader class" heading.

    just so you know, the individual components of that devastator set do not have robot modes. thats how different the pieces are. check out some reviews in the feedback forum and video reviews before throwing money at it. opinions on it are very divided. it seems people either love it, or wish it was erased from history. my excitement made me a bit dumb, as it seems it did the same to you here. not an insult! just to be clear. just, when people get excited, we say dumb stuff.

    It's like I'm shopping at Wal-mart, but I'm not leaving my computer!

    Except I don't come home with anything. Damn.

    I think you're lying. All the cute girls in my area work at Target and they work the cash register. :lol 

    And you made yours go into the back and drag out 3 heavy boxes. . .

    Interesting, haven't seen the Animated Twins on shelves anywhere around here. Though the few Animated voyagers they have are $19.

    Target does always seem to have some hotties.. Wal Mart never does.

    It's kind of like Quicktrip.. you never expect hotties to work in a gas station but for some reason every Quicktrip around here has at least one in it.
