    Since wal mart does not have and walmart.com don't either, this sucks.

    Even if you do, he is totally worth it. I wouldn't recommend paying over the price of MP-03 for him, though

    I know how you feel. I've been checking my local Walmart everyday in the hope that they may have at least one that I can buy. But no luck. :(  I think it totally sucks that they can't even get any in. It's sad that it was made a Walmart exculsive. I wish I could find someone that could get their hands on one for me. That would totally make my day.:D

    I dunno if I'll be getting him either.

    No way I can get him in-store, and I refuse to purchase one from a scalper and what not.

    My only hope to ever get this mold is Christmas..

    At least the ebay prices have gone down to a somewhat reasonable rate so don't feel too bad.

    I got one off eBay for about $80, and it was well worth it (though I did eventually find a bunch in stores later). I wouldn't miss this figure even if it means paying one of those evil scalpers.

    I'm gonna be forced to overpay since I won't have the funds to buy him for some time (that's assuming he was ever available in my area).

    Welcome to the latest installment of gamer's Masterpiece Starscream threads. :lol 

    Given the way other TFs are sometimes scalped, eBay prices really aren't that bad. Lots of auctions I've seen ended at just $50-60 plus shipping.

    Ebay:
    3 Wal-marts? You're going to have to try harder than that. I've been to at least 25 Wal-Marts in the DFW area since they were released.

    And did you find any?
    I've been all over and not seen MP Starscream.
    Nor have I seen that any Wal-mart has shelf space for it.

    I don't think you would necessarily want them.
    I hate Walmart, but I do begrudgingly shop there because they are cheaper than most everywhere else.

    But we do have their subsidiary, which manages to secure precisely zero TF exclusives... :/

    Look on the bright side, if you got him you'd only start loads of threads asking how to transform him. ;)
