So it doesn't come with instructions?
You may have gotten a return.
I'm still looking for the cassettes. Been to Walmart at least 10 times at opening and only found a lone Soundwave that was all beat to hell. The scalper probably figured that it would be too hard to sell in that condition and left it.
it doesn't look tampered with though, and I've looked at enough pictures of others online that look similar...
some have the instruction booklet floating around loose like mine...it just looks weird, like they cheaped out on the interior packaging
That’s exactly how mine came. The stickers being half peeled off bothered me more, though. :/
I had been waiting for them to put out stock(they showed as available in brickseek for weeks) and finally gave up. Happened to be walking through a random aisle nowhere near the toy section and there was one sitting there with 2 cassettes lol. It was in pristine condition, too, which is hella rare at walmart
Yeah, the instructions/sticker packet float around loose in the box behind the clear tray. I noticed some just have the "T" ties holding him in the tray, while others have packing tape to reinforce the "T"s, to prevent them from tearing/pulling through the tray.
My instructions were sliding around inside the box too and I bought mine minty off the Wal-Mart shelf.
I haven't opened Soundwave but I have opened Hot Rod (to slide his tray into the correct position) and Optimus (spare one I bought on clearance). Both of them had instruction packs that weren't secured - being held to the side purely by friction.
I think this is a result of them moving just to plastic trays instead of blister sealing the toys onto the backer
Keeping all these sealed(yes removed the ties and put back) love them! Lucky to have all the orginals
Looks like the demand for this is slowing down now. I'd be interested to know if anyone still has trouble finding these after this week.
Remind me, how much stock did your store get?
(Not from me. Found on reddit, Jackpot baby : transformers)
I've only seen a couple at my neighborhood Walmarts. They sold quick and only see the tapes now.
sounds like a return
I have never come across any of these reissues at my local Walmart in RI.
Where was this, Taiwan or the Philippines?
Broomfield, CO, USA
I live near there and can confirm. They got a second shipment of 36 just last week.
Cue all the people who go to this store saying it's ridiculous that no one else in other regions can find these at their own stores.
So, is this a strange screw up by Walmart....or a harbinger of things equal to Optimus stock levels....with many more coming soon to a theater near you, thus screwing the scalpers & hoarders perfectly for all of us to rejoice & locate these for everyone else?
