    I just checked the local Super Walmart, and was told they cant put out the movie toys until June 4th. Something about fines or something. I was told the registers wont even scan them. How are you people getting them from walmart already?

    Wal*Marts in Canada have been putting them out, I believe. Not US ones.

    And the street date is June 2nd so they're misinformed about the date. But yes, they will get fined most likely if they break that street date, which is why they're not scanning. A lot of Wal*Marts are telling their customers that the toys have been recalled.

    there is no more street date for deluxes, and there are no fines for them as a result of that.

    True. But only Target has put out the deluxes so far. There hasn't been any sightings for the deluxes at all at Wal*Marts. So I'm thinking they think the street date still applies to those as well even though it isn't.

    Also keep in mind that this is still up to the toy managers what they want to do. We have heard reports from TRU stores saying their managers know but are still waiting until the 2nd anyways.

    I saw the cyber slammers out at my Wal-Mart by mistake. I tried to buy one thinking since they were out they may not have the June 2nd restriction.

    Wasn't the case since the darn thing would NOT scan!

    Oh, there've been sightings, but I've not seen any reports where someone successfully bought them. They all rang up "sale not allowed" and were taken away.

    I believe there've been a smattering of findings at TRUs, too.

    I've heard a couple reports of the toys actually being put out on the sales floor and WM managers refusing to sell them.

    Yeah I really didn't think Wal Mart would listen to/receive/care about Hasbro's message on the deluxes.

    And yes stuff came out at some walmarts in Canada, the same stuff as Zellers here in Canada (everything 1st wave EXCEPT deluxes). TRU is the only place in Canada that has released the deluxes. For those who didn't know about what has what in Canada check out cybertron.ca's sighting sections in the forum.
