    Hey @nathan_s82 did you manage to get Bluestreak yet? According to Brickseek several Walmarts near me appear to have 6+ on hand. If you still need a hook up I can try to get one for you. Apparently lots of the 35th are in stock, not just him. But seems like they are reaching saturation now so maybe you've found them already?

    I got him one already. But if you see a BS ghost Yoda or ROTJ Luke at Walmart, let me know.

    Will do but I almost never go to Walmart if I can avoid it. No more TF exclusives = I probably won't be there!

    Haha, I wouldn't go if I didn't have to either! I almost died at Walmart today so I understand.

    Cars tried to run me over in the crosswalk, and I mean actually tried. Another barrelled at my car full speed. He wasn't even looking. Sadly, I expect these things when I go to Walmart as this isn't an extremely dangerous situation for me, it's par for the course.

    Jeez, people need to pay attention. Sorry to hear that as I never really had to experience that around Walmarts or Targets.

    Now you know why I keep asking people to look for Yoda and Luke. When I go to Walmart, I take my life into my own hands. *stares off into the void*

    Plus I'm trying to get a set for Titanium as well.

    Went to the Burbank Walmart last night. They didn't have anything exciting in the Transformers section, but they did have a big ol' display of those Black Series Jedi Luke and Spirit Yoda folks seem to be looking for. Said display was plopped right in front of Electronics.

    Don't thank me, thank the knife. I mean @Sunsetter for posting about it.

    I will keep my eyes open around here in case I find myself near Walmart.

    Ordered Siege Apeface off Amazon (who’s still available) Friday night and he’s on my doorstep early Saturday afternoon. That’s pretty crazy. Also $5 off retail.

    I remember getting G1 Apeface for Christmas as a kid and thinking WTF? One of the more bizarre characters out there. Good to see the Siege one still has that same vibe.
