    I couldn't find the thread that involved this, so I'm starting this one...if another exists, could an Admin merge it into the existing one?

    I went to one of my local Walmarts this morning and I found that they had the "Black Friday" Power Core Combiner special buy sets. Not just one or two of them...cases worth!

    So, I made a list of what was with what, keep in mind there were many multiples of each:
    =====

    Double Clutch w/Rallybots came with Huffer/Caliburst or Windburn/Darkray

    Over-Run w/Stunticons came with Steelshot/Beacon

    Mudslinger w/Destructicons came with Darkstream/Razorbeam or Smolder/Chopster

    Stakeout w/Protectobots came with Searchlight/Backwind or Heavytread/Groudspike

    Crankcase w/Destrons came with Skyhammer/Airlift or Sledge/Throttler

    Grimstone w/Dinobots came with Undertow/Waterlog or Leadfoot/Pinpoint

    Steamhammer w/Constructicons came with Icepick/Chainclaw

    =====

    So out of all of the PCCs, Bombshock, Skyburst, and Salvage were the only ones not present. And they were still $10 each.

    I guess, if anyone is interested in any of these sets, drop me a PM and we can work something out.

    I saw a pack with Salvage, but I don't remember who he was packed with. I'm mostly sure it was the Destrons, though.

    And I got a Protectobot set that was packed with Huffer/Caliburst, an Over-Run that came with Sledge, and a Destron set with Waterlog.

    I almost wonder it the combinations are completely random...

    I have no idea...all I know is that out of the 4 Walmarts that I frequent, this is the only one that has them.

    And keep in mind that these were supposed to be for Black Friday...when I asked one of the associates about them, he said "We just put them out last night, we didn't have them on Black Friday"


    It could be that they are random, but the ones I saw this morning didn't seem that way...*shrug*

    my stunticons came with sledge when I got them last friday.

    might stop back today and see if there's any other ones I want to pick up.
    the earlier pcc's were pretty trash figures but I've ended up getting a few of the later ones now (dinos, undertow, heavytread) and been overwhelmingly impressed with them.

    if anything else I'd like to pick up some decent drones for undertow and heavytread.

    My Stunticons came with Salvage, there was only a few packed that way in the two Wally's I hit up. I grabbed Grimstone packed with Skyhammer x 2 as well, That was the majority of the packs were Grimstone/Skyhammer.

    Most of the two opacks attached were Icepick, Sledge, undertow, or Skyhammer

    Not a Heavtread to be found, thanksfully I already have two.

    true, but getting 4x commanders, 2x minicons and 8x drones for $20 is still a damn good deal.

    I might still get those 3rd party figs for heavytread if they turn out nice.

    Indeed it is...hell, if they had them in such a way where I could get all the different figures without having to buy duplicates, I might have dropped some cash on them...

    Quite frankly I'm surprised any stores still has stock... any idea if your Walmart somehow forgot to put these out for Black Friday?

    The Walmart I checked out had almost nothing left Black Friday at noon. For the price of $10 I'm not at all surprised that folks wiped the store clean of PCCs.

    Went to two Walmarts in my area and it was like this deal never happened. Very dissappointed.

    That's probably because, being a Black Friday special, most stores were cleared out by Friday evening.

    If these reappear, it will be because the store didn't get them out (like they were supposed to, being a nationally advertised special) on Friday proper.

    But for the list, I got the Constructicons with Heavy Tread. Saw a STunticon with Sledge pack on the shelves.

    I hit my first Walmart a couple days before and around 11AM that Firday. Second Walmart I hit on Sunday afternoon. I only tried that one because it is in a shadier part of town and seems to have leftovers of previous lines. Crap, they still had the only Thuderwing I've seen in a long time, lol.

    The Walmarts in my area all had random PCC stuff. Mostly Steamhammers. One had a lot of like 5 Grimstones. All of them with a variety of either Icepick, Salvage, or Skyhammer with it.

    I myself bought a Constructicons/Heavytread pack.

    I also saw Salvage but I don't remember with whom he was packed.
