    What does Wal-Mart use for "free delivery?" USPS won't deliver to my apt. complex during the pandemic, so if they use UPS or Fed Ex, I'm okay.

    Ok, I'm sorry, but I already did. Can people please stop telling me to give up? I have

    There's nothing wrong with me playing devil's advocate and trying to theorize> I'm just trying to look at it from all possible angles and draw my own conclusions

    How do preorders work at Walmart? Up front charge?

    I did the same. Fomo is a b*tch. I was able to return my regular siege and earthrise megatrons. The Netflix one was essentially perfect. I have super megatron which I love so this new one needs to be significant. I was never going to keep the fossilizer so if it is a decent enough megatron and I can recover half selling off the fossilizer I will keep it.

    They charged me upfront when I got Netflix Soundwave, IIRC.

    They usually just cancel the preorder well after they've shown up in stores nowhere near you.

    I do love the Netflix version. I also recently bought Super Megatron, different mold of course but probably my favorite overall.

    If the Wave 3 Deluxes don't go up by 3 or shortly thereafter, I'm out.

    That would be the only way I would buy that mold again. I don't regret the 35 Anniversary cel-shaded Megs, but when that Netflix shiny silver was revealed it was a little painful knowing my "perfect" wave 1 Megs was now custom fodder.

    Beast Wars fans, is it just the 4 vintage figures, spoiler pack, Primal/Rattrap 2-pack, and Netflix Cheetor that are exclusive to Walmart? Am I missing anyone?
    If that’s the case, has or will Cheetor go up at all for this event, do we know?

    Thanks in advance! It’s hard to remember everything... *sweat drop*

    It would certainly go well with the transparent paleotrex that's also included
    I am down for an entirely translucent purple spoiler pack

    FYI on the news item:
    The leak was one of the two G1 Megatron molds, not BW.

    They don't.

    Just because it keeps getting buried, here's the Spoiler Pack rumor straight from the leaker's own post:

    Did the wave 2 \"spoiler\" pack ever get released?  I saw one person on youtube find it at retail, and never heard about it after that.

    It did, but of course it had stupidly awful distribution.

    Walmart, like Target, does an immediate pre-authorization charge that drops off after a few days, then charges again periodically to make sure the money is still there.

    I don't Preorder anything through Walmart, they will screw up your bank account just like they screw up your Preorders.

    I'm going to go eat lunch. I swear, if the deluxes go up while I'm gone... I will do nothing about it.
