    Nice pics , you got balls.

    My walmart would probably be like "Dude?!" :lol 

    It's hard to resist though, they put the pallets right there to walk by when your heading for the TF aisle.(THAT'S BEEN SITTING THERE FOR DAYS) Half the time you see the cases of what you're looking for.
    I never touch them though unless they're opened .

    ^WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    anyways, i never get to see the transformer cases, but before the first clone wars figures got released i got to see a case of them. the guy let me and my little brother look at the figures, but said he can't sell them. we thanked him. it was quite an awesome experience

    man

    Man I have opened boxes before, and got stuff out, if it is on the sales floor it is fair game, I have stocked a case once, since it said put out immediately and some Wal-Mart employees can not read.

    I have absolutely *no* qualms about opening a box if I know it contains something I'm hunting for. If it's on the floor, it's meant to be stocked that evening, so it's fair game. I've never had any issues with employees when I got out my car keys and cut open a shipping box. Maybe a few weird looks, but not once have I been scolded or even talked to. Usually I'll even go the extra mile and put the figures I don't want on the pegs for them. I found a lot of Alternators and other hard to find items that way.

    I've been on the hunt for those damned Ice Cream Twins for so long now with zero luck. I'm so jealous. All I see in CT and NY are SEAS of Wheelies, Chromias, Sideways, Skids and Desert Brawls. EVERYWHERE I GO. Up and down the entire length of my state. :sigh: I'm two seconds from resorting to giving money to a scalper on eBay. I've had some time off from work, so I wasted so much energy and gas the past two weeks looking for these elusive little jerks...I don't even want to calculate just how much. Ha!

    oh i saw those boxes before, it was right after i watched the movie on the first day i headed over to the near by wal-mart with some friends looking at the toys. I saw the boxes, i knew they were transformers cuz i saw the hasbro sign and it had a date on when to shelf them.

    That Wal-mart looks like the one i saw the boxes at.

    Union City Wal-mart?
