    WSP target has two 10pk micromasters with empty shelf space/ tag for the seeker trio
    plus newest cyberbot stuffs. Oh and a lone siege Starscream really who isn’t half bad toy wise sans smirk.

    Which is funny cause Thundercracker apparently has the smirk for his Siege figure that Starscream should have. (Is Thundercracker already out in stores even?)

    Not widely. I got him from Hot Comics in a trade a couple weeks ago. They get their stuff wholesale from Entertainment Earth. I heard he was "delayed" until October. I don't know if that's true, or why EE had any.

    I got Thundercracker from Amazon the other day. He does indeed have a smirk face that looks much better on Starscream.

    When Hasbro decided to extend Siege, they took the Springer/Thundercracker wave and split it in two. So now Springer comes with Screamer and Cracker will ship with Megatron (I think).

    Could just swap their heads when you get Thundercracker. That's what I was gonna do.

    Also: Nothing really interesting at Bville Target. Looked like a tornado hit it.

    Starscream having the frown makes plenty of sense, since he tended to get punished by Megatron in practically every episode. But yeah TC is popping up places, going by twitter posts.

    Edit- TC is in stock at Amazon

    Went to 6 Walmarts on Friday trying to find Soundwave and the tapes. All (but one) supposed to have it, all with nothing. Midway, Roseville, Brooklyn Center, Fridley, and both Blaine stores. Don't really want to just buy them on eBay (and encourage scalpers)... but I've been to Walmart more in the last 2 weeks than the last 2 years.

    Going by Brickseek, I think the only stores that actually have them are the ones that show smaller numbers (4 instead of 12 in this instance). I was once told by a Wal-Mart employee that the larger number refers to how many of the item that store is allocated, but it doesn't necessarily mean they've received their shipment. When they do get their shipment, the number reduces to the actual portion fulfilled. If I understand correctly.

    Yeah, that's why i went out to the two Blain Walmarts. They had lower numbers... making me hope they had them on the shelf. Maybe that means they're about to put them out? I suppose I could always go back and check some week night.

    Hightower is *finally* available on Pulse, so we can all stop driving aimlessly around Walmarts (unless you're hunting Soundwave.)

    There are five G1 Soundwaves at Eagan Walmart. Tapes are sold out though.

    Hey who needed one? I can swing by tonight and nab one. (Also, of course it's the day I decided not to swing by on my way to work.)

    ----------------

    Also, the original reason I came here...because this is probably the best version of BW Megatron ever. Ever.

    Don't bother. Scalpers already struck. They're gone.
