    Yeah, I'm waiting this one out. I think Nemesis Pr-ahem-Scourge's weak sales backed up the pipeline for Walmart on Galaxy Shuttle. Pulse may also get a couple of restocks down the road. (This should probably be a lesson for the Hasbro design team to get deco's right. Had he looked more like Scourge, there would probably be a LOT more sales. I know I would've bought one.)

    Minerva may end up being discount store fodder when all is said and done, sadly. I'd be watching for an Ollie's buyout sale on her eventually because I think Walgreen's is throwing in the towel.

    Agreed.

    Maybe if I see him on clearance I'll finally grab him....maybe.

    So, I just got my copy of Galaxy Shuttle… is there mold degradation? I can’t seem to get his ‘shuttle doors’ to fully come together, and even the wheels seem to actually be ‘pulling’ apart to where they won’t fit together in train mode. Even the ‘Base’ when extended won’t sit flat, but has a weird hovering angle to it…

    It's baked in to the mold. Astrotrain does it as well.

    Hey for all who are waiting I saw Scourge’s tag on clearance at a local walmart for like $37, in a walmart in Las Cruces NM. Thinking since it was the shelf tag and not in a separate clearance section it’s a sign that there’s about to be a store-wide clear out to make room for Galaxy Shuttle

    I missed the order window on Pulse and had to take a chance ordering straight from WM. Earlier today, it said it was delayed, so I figured it was just a matter of time before it got canceled. But now there's a tracking number. It'll probably come in a wet paper bag, but I'll take it.

    Mine's on the way too, shows shipped in FedEx app and Walmart's website, but no emails from Walmart about it, or charges on my bank yet.

    As someone who held their Cosmos preorder for MONTHS through Walmart I can tell you I'd still stick with Pulse. Because once my Cosmos finally shipped they showed up and it was a Cosmos and a Road Rocket. Which sucks for the people who I had held that PO to help out.

    As others have said the base mode is like that, the shuttle bay shins though could be alignment - if you don't get the shuttle/train noses at exactly the right angle they can throw off the shins coming together. One set of the train wheels on my copy had been slightly warped by being held at a slightly off angle by the packing ties, so I fixed that with a bit of electric kettle spout steaming to re thermoset the plastic, and flatten them back against the wings so could yours need a bit of that? And are you properly tabbing the front and rear train wheels sections together right?

    that’s strange. I ordered Galaxy Shuttle from pulse during their restock and I received the figure on Tuesday.
