    My local Wal-Mart never stocked Soundwave and his minions at all, and when I asked I was told they weren't going to...

    Doors don’t hit back...

    A table flip would be adequate. No?

    My reaction was more Ian Malcolm than that...

    "Um, ah... At some point you do plan on actually having Wal-Mart exclusives in your Wal-mart store? Hello?"

    The tapes have been restocked every other week at my Walmart. When I went the other day I saw just one set on the peg. Soundwave himself has been restocked at least twice.

    My local Walmart also won't stock Soundwave or the cassettes. I find it odd they won't carry their own exclusive.

    There are some Wal-Marts with very small toy sections and are a bit more limited, but in some cases it's just odd. There are two Wal-Marts near me, one tends to get a lot of the exclusives and certain products, the other really doesn't.

    I do know that all 3 parts of this set I've seen on Walmart website. So if i was you I'd keep that website up in your browser. I'm sure you could get them but have to be patient though.

    I picked up another Soundwave today and realized that the manufacture date is stamped on the back of the box, at the bottom of the Buzzsaw tech spec. There's a 5-digit # that starts with a 9 and ends in a 1. The three digits in between represent the day of the year of manufacture.

    Hmmm.... mine says 135. So you're saying it's the 135 day of 2019? You sure you're not seeing patterns that aren't there?

    Yup, positive! You can check eBay auctions to see other numbers. The earliest I've seen so far is 123. My other SW is 137.

    The manufacture date is also stamped inside the battery cover and is on the Hasbro shipping boxes.

    Here's a link to my earlier post with the details: G1 Soundwave’s reissue revealed

    This is a known thing for Hasbro products to be marked this way, its done at the factory. The first digit is the last one in the year (2019) and the next three are the day within the year the item was made (135 in this case). So your Soundwave was made on May 15th, 2019.

    We don't know what the last number means.

    $133.95?!? :lol 

    You can go on eBay right now and buy Soundwave. Several sellers have it for around $50 with free shipping.

    I wonder why and how some of those sellers have him for so cheap. They might have been some of the cases that have "gone missing" at certain stores.

    "Sold & shipped byAction Packaged, Inc."

    Walmart allowing third party sellers was a huge mistake in my opinion. They want to be like Amazon but nobody goes to the Walmart website to buy from some third party you've never heard of before.

    But I also got that $133 price but there is a option for the Walmart in stock price

    And its weird that Walmart also has Devastator in stock. My walmart got him once andnever saw him any other walmart. I missed out and tempted to order him
