    For pre-order? Probably never, unless you want to pay markup. If you want to pay retail price for it, store exclusives almost never get pre-orders (unless they're at Toys 'R" Us, and half or more of those seem to get magically cancelled when it's released, only to have the item show up online in quantity about a month after that...).

    Don't preorder, just ask a member here to keep an eye out for you. I know in the Sightings forum for Ohio we have most of the members hide toys for each other. Then go online and post exactly where in the store the toy is hidden.

    I do know if I find more than 1 I'll pick up an extra one and sell it here to anyone.

    The Masterpiece Starscream is supposed to be a Wal-Mart exclusive. Their new toy set drops next week, so if it is on the new layout you should see it in two weeks at most. I'd check the larger stores first, since I don't think smaller ones will be carrying it.

    Well, I'm checking day in and day out for the Starscream pre-order on Walmart.com. Now I read som eof you suggested not pre-ordering I assume you mean from bbts? Is that correct?

    I remember UBB pre-orders went out about a month before it came out, so I hope we see something by next week.

    Wow it takes big balls to pick on people. Just cuz some threads get started a few times more than others just means people forget stuff, it's not like we all live and breathe on this website. Of course, searching for your answer is preferable, it's still funny that some people felt the need to go into the thread to post insults.

    Valkysas is right - you obviously aren't acquainted with Gamer's previous threads. Stick around for the fun when he actually gets that MP Starscream!

    Incidentally, this is actually an older gamer thread, not one he's started recently. You could blame Tell_Story for bumping this thread. :p  I mean, it doesn't solve the "gamer problem," but at least it's not a new one he created. Perhaps it was due to my links in the thread that actually was gamer's most recent...
