    Bloomsburg? Really?!?

    I graduated from college there about a year ago and the Walmarts there never got any of the new stuff on time, so this is surprising to me. They weren't even organized enough to put out the first wave stuff for the ROTF line at the time! Even when they checked in the back for me, they couldn't find any of the Deluxes or Leader class Prime.

    It does almost seem as if someone in Hasbro Marketing peeked into room while they were signing-off on the decos for the BotCon 2010 set and jotted down: "Note to self for meeting with big-box retailers Re: store exclusive packs- Garish neon is evidently in w/ fans this year..."

    I'm not sure if this is old news, but I found the Target exclusives today too.

    Is it just me, or have the news reports started getting a little more whacky with the last few posts on the front page?

    I don't know whether to rage that I won't see these exclusives because Wal-Mart doesn't exist in Australia, or to breathe a sigh of relief because that way I won't have to see these pointless things clogging shelves when I'm trying to find stuff that I want.

    Think I'll go with the latter.

    I'm actually just shocked that Wal-Mart started getting new stuff.

    I'm betting Hasbro is releasing these exclusives for the time being, just to get us accustomed to bad exclusives. That way, we'll explosively rush to TRU to pick up the last waves of Animated.

    I said it last time and I'll say it this time. "Banana" is not camouflage.

    If the Brawl & Jolt were a Leader/Deluxe set I might have bought it.

    I want those legends, if anyone is interested in these figures I would be happy to buy them and sell the deluxes, PM me if interested, would most likely be asking around $5 each plus shipping through paypal.

    Why oh why is my local Walmart so pathetic? It still has nothing but Tuner Mudflaps that are sitting there mocking me for the lack of HA Mudflaps.

    Yeah. The Brawl/Jolt set just screams G2 "so bad it's good" kitsch to me. Love that one. Also will pick up the BB/Grindor set because Grindor has an awesome color scheme and... well, last thing I need is another BB, but he's a bit more different than I had thought. And I'm weak.
