    That's the vibe I was getting, though I would assume removing the pin would leave some noticeable marks on the plastic that I don't see on the figure in question.

    My local Walmart dumped theirs on the shelf over the weekend. I don’t know how much is left but if someone wants to comp me price+shipping..I may be able to send out 2-3. I’m going back today to pick up megs/Optimus.

    I found them at collinsville IL walmart supercenter and grabbed em.... then cancelled the online preorder because WTH walmart... preorders should be coming in before people can pick them up in store.

    Just reporting in that they are showing up in the Miami area. Just picked a Megatron and found Soundblaster in Doral. Happy hunting.

    your not the only one to see this, at a walmart the previous sunday i was stoked to find optimus and megs, looked at the figure and knew right away it was molested. It was the first siege release optimus with no cel shading, tape cut, no clear ties. People are some serious scumbags.

    Yesterday at a different walmart that's local to me they finally had the display up with EVERY figure. snatched up bluestreak, megs, optimus, soundblaster.

    Well, now 2 Walmarts near me say IN STOCK but they must be rotting in the back. Do these have a street date?

    Walmart has legitimately tried charging my card for these things 12+ times. When the hell are preorders gonna be fulfilled?

    Ive already seen the displays around me completely sell out. That’s one of the faster sales I think I’ve seen when it comes to TFs.

    They sold through at my store..I picked up Optimus and Megs..still don't know if I'm keeping. But it's been interesting seeing the response. Bluestreak went the fastest..

    My local store, Clackamas Oregon Wal-Mart randomly had 1 bluestreak, but no more and no other 35th and no endcap. Happy to get him as he's the one I wanted most. Does Smokescreen have a primary distributor or is he just general online only?

    Smokescreen is the Selects release. I believe Pulse is the primary distributor for those, with general online release through the usual places (sometimes with a markup).

    I'm beginning to think that my walmart thinks that those displays are for black Friday.... I check the entire store everyday I'm here and nada!
