    **EDITED**

    I mean, really, enough. :annoyed A sighting in freakin' Thief River Falls MN or something doesn't do a blessed thing for someone living in the Fox Cities area of WI.


    On a more positive flipside, ol' Shawn's gonna be our go-to guy from now on, I think. Beaver Dam's getting its own Wal-Mart distribution center in a coupla years.

    Yasureyabetchasnookums. :D

    I just thought it was a good idea to have them together as most of the MN people are in the twin cities and that is very close to the border.

    If you have something personal to say to me say it in a pm

    Wal-Mart's distribution center is in Menomenie, WI...
    Thus, much of MN is in line to get new stuff around the same time it shows up in western WI.

    Well... some of the distribution centers in WI handle states other than MN. Should we include all of them too?

    OK...onto something a little more positive...
    I've checked the Energon numbers in our system. They are all now in the system, but there is nothing "On Order" yet. All of the Armada stuff is now showing up as "POS Only" except for the Maxcons and Unicron (I think), which are "Deleted". The former means that we cannot order them at store level anymore, and the computer is doing all of the ordering. The later means that there shouldn't be any more shipped to the stores, although I doubt it in Unicron's case. It all boils down to the Armada ending, so Energon can begin. It will be soon.
    If any of you have been holding off on anything, I'd pick it up now. Especially Nemesis Prime, PL Demolishor, Emergency and Sea redecos, Predacon, and PL Red Alert. They are all tail-enders, and PROBABLY won't be showing up in massive quantities. BD Wal-Mart may not even get any of the PL Supercons. We have an onhand of 20-odd supercons, and nothing on order. We can't manually order any, and by the time all those Smokescreens sell, it'll be too late for anything newer to arrive.

    Shawn...apologizes for rambling

    Saw Universe Inferno and ratchet tonight at the West Bend Wal-Mart

    I easily passed on them, but have to thank Shawn for getting me the Minicon recolors for the Sea and Emergency mini's!

    And PL Demolisher and Nemesis Prime!

    Surprise surprise.. Walmart west in Madison got a case of the wave 3 TFU figs. I haven't opened them yet, but I'm not impressed by the paint apps on the vehicles. Hopefully the bot modes are better.

    Still no Supercons, however there are still plenty of Maxcons (most with minicon bonus packs) for $15.89.

    Walmart west put out another case of TFU figs today. Other than that, nothing else new there.

    Target on the west side had one lone Emergency Team repaint. No idea why it was there since the rest of the assortment wasn't out. It wasn't in the computer either. Oh well.. its mine now anyway.

    Dash and grab baby...dash and grab...

    but the matter comes down to knowing where to find the stuff...so like Dash, look around for 15 minutes, dash, grab, dash, find out where the heck to leave, and then dash again.

    I got it all planned out :D

    In case anyone here hasn't heard...Yellow Landfill will be a Wal-Mart blitz item. Available Friday after Thanksgiving at 6am. Yeah, the Blitz thing sucks, but at least we know where and when down to the minute we can get one...well, not me, cuz I'll be working :<

    We don't have them yet unless they came in this weekend (we're now on 7-day receiving). As for quantities, I wouldn't even want to hazard a guess except to say 2 things...Supercenters will almosy certainly have more quantity than Division 1 stores, and that in previous years, some blitz items have had hideously low quantities, 12-24 pieces. Beatnik, I assume you're gonna be there bright and early?

    I'm actually going to be in MN that Friday. I hope to grab as many as I can, just to make the natives whine even more than they do! :p 

    Seriously, I think there will be plenty to go around. If not that Friday, you'll be able to find them by Christmas.

    In reply to Pimpimus' last post...the only way that they'll last beyond Friday is if they don't sell. Blitz items are one-time-only deals, and they will send ALL stock from the warehouses to the stores. It is HIGHLY unlikely that you'll see any more ship after Black Friday. Get'em while they're fresh...

    I saw a few "week 43" Blitz boxes in the toy department this morning. No idea what was what though. I might go back later to see if the employees put the stuff out there.

    Any idea how many per case or what the assortment # is?
