    Looks like they had one, but they decided to empty it and stock/dump it on the shelves rather than try to find a space for it.

    You wanna ship one to South Africa for me then?

    That's actually a semi-serious question....

    I don't even know if my Walmart would get them or if I'll have the money to double dip to ship. Does South Africa have that much of a hard time getting exclusives? That sucks.

    The only exclusives I can get my hands on are the Amazon or BBTs ones. By and large we struggle it get more than one wave if anything.

    I no longer even consider brick and mortar retail as a result.

    My endcap has some starscreams. Is this the same as the Springer wave Starscream release? With this subtle smirk?

    also does this revision have the fixed chest piece?

    The Walmart’s near say they are in stock yet not out and they couldn’t find them in the back! I hate exclusive’s now esp since TRU went under!

    One Wally World near me put out the display, but two others have not. It's hit or miss.

    Checked 2 Walmarts, nothing. But I finally found Impactor and Mirage so cool.

    Walmart probably doesn’t have toy managers you probably talked to the general merchandise manager. But it probably ended up in the planogram/layout team’s back room since they’d be the ones to set it up most likely. So it was almost definitely in the back the person you talked to probably just didn’t think to or didn’t want to dig around to find it.

    Still nada. I'll be checking weekly. Hoping I'll find Barricade while I'm at it.

    Found one of these in my area, and snagged a Soundblaster at a proper voyager price, not the B.S. 39.99 I've seen them for on Walmart.com a lot.

    Having seen the cell-shaded Prime and Megs in person now, they look a little better than I was expecting, but still nothing special. Certainly not worth $30, at least not to me. I'm very happy with regular Siege OP, and Earthrise OP looks like it will scratch the old nostalgia itch far better.

    My local Walmart has "3-4 Available" of Prime and Megatron, and both are marked as available for store pickup on walmart.com. I go into the store and find nothing, ask an employee and he knows nothing about them. Boo! Walmart exclusives are always such a pain in the ass in my experience.

    According to Brickseek not a single Walmart in my area has them in stock. I just want a Bluestreak. I really hate Walmart exclusives.

    *Production Error Figure Found*
    So just recently, I went to a Wal-Mart store that I frequently visited here in SoCal and while I didn't find any 35th Anniversary figures I found something that could potentially be big. I went to where they usually sold the Transformers at and saw the Autobot Impactor on the shelves. At first I didn't seem to take much interest until I noticed that it had the caution stripe deco on the chest from the Amazon version. I took closer look and to my utter surprise it had the Decepticon version's Entire chest plate. I realized at that moment that I had found a Production error Impactor with the wrong chest piece. Now strangely the packaging tape was already cut open and the ties holding the figure down were non-existant leaving the figure floating in the packaging. Knowing this purchased the figure and took it home for closer examination. I then noticed that the age rating symbol on the box was different than on the other siege boxes and after doing some more digging, I realized that I not only found a Production Error, But a EUROPEAN Producion Figure. Now how did A European Error figure end up in an American Wal-Mart? I have no clue, but here are the photos I took both in store and after I purchased it so I'll leave it here for the rest of you all to speculate.

    Based on what I bolded, I'd say it was a return, where someone swapped the chestplate with the Amazon version.
