    Wow that's strange - I can't even get Spinister to show up on the Walmart website.

    Definitely! I’m surprised how much I enjoy this shockwave though. I never really liked how pricy it was before for what you got but then the alt mode was weird too. But it’s sort of grown onto me

    I did want to see though, does your shockwave have a REALLY loose platform mode? (ie sticking the shoulder attachments onto the side to create his hovering platform?) I was reading that they made the peg holes slightly bigger than 5mm so those pieces tend to fall out. Mine does that.

    Yea I felt the same way which was why i never got him when he came out. I had the Walgreens cyber battalion Shockwave for my display and even gave him knees but for $5 why not??!! And yes mine does have a loose platform mode as well. Maybe future could fix that a bit. Pretty good figure tho!!!

    The funny thing though that I’m reading is that this IS the fix :( . Apparently first runs had an issue with slightly smaller than 5mm peg holes that would snap the hose and pegs on the diff parts. So the reissue wave widened the peg holes.

    Checked three Walmarts. South Irving, Las Colinas, and the one near 121 and glade. No dice on Astrotrain, Spinister or Crosshairs. Lots of Bluesteaks, And cell shaded Primes and Megatrons

    same here I hit a few Walmarts on the way home ystrdy. didnt see any new siege stuff. the stores I visited didnt even have any shelf space for anything new. i guess in anticipation for Black Friday/ Christmas theyve got everything else packed to the brim. there's no space for new transformers.

    I saw those stupid PVC figures have returned also. seeing lots of g1 soundwave & cassettes. noticed many stores not putting up the 35th anniversary display. instead have everything loose in the tf section. I dont like that. just thrown everything in the aisle. looks tacky.

    I was hoping to find Micromasters at Target to catch the end of the buy 2, get 1 free sale, but didn't see anything new in stores in Plano, Frisco and Allen. The bigger Dirt Cheap in Carrollton had some decent Lego SW sets at 40% off.
