    I got $70 worth of Wal-mart gift cards from my bro and my sis today and I was wondering what I should get with it. I really want to make this one count so if you have suggestions I'd love to be helped out.

    I suggest going for any exclusives first, if they're on your wishlist. You wont be able to pick up MP skywarp at TRU or Target.

    Bludgeon and Recon Ironhide if they peak your interest.

    If you're new to the current lines, I would suggest collecting the "essentials" (IMO) first, namely, Leader Class Optimus Prime and Human Alliance Bumblebee (and Skids, if that's your thing). IMO, these are absolutely quintessential of the movie line, both are iconic characters with the definite versions here.

    After that, spread it out to try the other movie characters. I just got Legends Wheelie and Soundwave, and they're fantastic.

    Also, if Animated is still around, you might want to consider that too. I'd recommend any of the main Autobots if you can find them. I heard there's a re-issue of Samurai Prowl, so definitely pick that up if you see it (because Prowl, again IMO, is an awesome toy and is considerably expensive online). And a couple of Universe ones are excellent choices, it's just they're very hard to find now.

    If your walmart got any of the restocked universe ultras stormcloud, and silverbolt I would stongly advise picking one or both of them up at their $11 special price. You are not going to do better than stormcloud for the price. Really fun transformation, accurate alt mode, and great sound effects.

    Silverbolt is a bit weaker, but I think it is easily worth $11 for all the electronic effects.

    Also restocked animated leaders, and roll out command were all only $20

    I don't know if it's a chain-wide thing, but the 2 Walmarts near me (So. CA) reset their TF prices back to near full retail this week. Leaders are back to $45, and Deluxes are $10 again. $10's still a decent price for Deluxes, but they'd been $8 since Black Friday.

    Aside from price issues, you should definitely pick up Leader class Animated Shadowblade Megatron if they have him. They've been getting Roadbuster Magnus all holiday season long, so they -should- also have SB Megs. While I still haven't found one myself, I've seen a couple reports of people finding him at Walmart recently.

    And like others here said, the exclusives are good, especially those $11 Ultras. MP Skywarp -looks- great, but a friend of mine got the MP Starscream last year there & sold it immediately because he felt the plastic was too brittle & likely to have the tabs break off. Plus, he's just not all that poseable in the legs & ends up having to just sorta stand there in robot mode.

    I recommend you check out Wal-Mart's website, which has a lot of good stuff at good prices right now.

    Other than that, I'd go with Powerglide (red) and Bludgeon.

    At the current clearance Prices I saw today I'd recommend the Exclusive Red Powerglide and Hardhead for $15 each and Animated Megatron and Ultra Magnus at $20 each
