    Funny that you say this...lastnight when I was talking to the stocker lady and after we had gone through all the boxes I thanked her for her help and she said it was no problem...as I was leaving she said "I have nowhere to put all of these"...

    So many Walmarts may have to hold some back in storage or place them on the outskirts of the toy area...


    And thanks above for the Lockdown hands issue...:thumbs2:

    Well here in Pasadena and La Porte ANIMATED has landed. I picked up SS, Lugnut, Grimlock, Ratchet, and Blackarachnia! Had plenty of Deluxes and I got the only SS, Grimlock and Lugnut I saw, but they were stocking so there might be more now. I found them at the WalMart on Spencer in La Porte and Pasadena on Fairmont. Damn all of these guys are nice!

    Did they have them on the pegs or in storage in the back?
    Also, the 242 Wal-Mart is the one after you make a turn at the 4-way intersection or the College park one?
    Thanks for letting me know defstar!

    Lewisville TX Super Wal-Mart off Round Grove had a ton of Animated this morning. Snagged me the only Grimlock I saw and within minutes people tore through the section and took almost everything (Starscream, Megatron, Lockdown, Lugnut, & Bumblebee)
    I had to go back to Wal-Mart this afternoon and they still had some Cyb mode Prime, 2 Bulkheads, 1 Cyb mode Megatron, Black Arachnias, and Ratchets. Oh and some of those Prime/Meg two packs.

    Just returned from a morning trip to the Walmart in Houston at Westview and the Tollway and they were pretty much loaded. They had just about everyone as far as I could see. Only 1 Megatron left out of the stock. So, hurry up kids before its too late!

    And now that I've seen the Voyagers in person, wow they are big! And so stuck between what mode to keep Starscream and Grimlock in! Money, come raining down so I can buy 2 of each!

    Hey guys, just found Animated Ratchet, Black Arachnia, Lockdown, Starscream, and Megatron at the Wal-Mart in Round Rock Texas (north of Austin), off of I-H35.

    I didn't buy them because I'm waiting for Metal Gear this week, so I don't have images, but there were plenty of them.

    College Station Walmart has an endcap with all sighted animated Voyagers (Bulkhead, Starscream, Megatron, Grimlock, and Lugnutz) and the Battle Begins DVD 2 packs. They were unloading a pallet around 11:30am this morning, and the pallet had at least 2-3 cases of animated wave 2 deluxes. The wave 2 deluxe case assortment is:

    Blackarachnia X 2
    Bumblebee X 1
    Cybertron Mode Optimus Prime X 1
    Lockdown X 1
    Prowl X 1
    Ratchet X 2

    Bryan Walmart has 1 Lockdown, 2 Blackarachnias, and 2 Ratchets on the pegs by the movie toys.

    Looking for one more Grimlock in the Austin/Cedar Park area, if any one would not mind keeping an eye out for me? Need one to stay in Dino mode for my display. :D 


    On a side note, does any one esle have trouble with their lugnut? specifically the canopy not staying closed?

    And on a third note, anyone notice that you can take lockdowns gun off the hook atachment and add it to ratchets arm? EMP generator anyone? :D

    My Lugnut has one side of the canopy that has a hard time staying closed. However, if I was gentle enough it would stay closed in vehicle mode.

    I also love the fact you can attach Lockdowns/engine/gun/EMP to Ratchet, although it fits and stays in place, it might fall out easily due to the small peg on Ratchets arm.

    These animated toys are defintely great for us TFans!

    Yep...same here as one side of Lugnut opens...still an awesome looking figure...though i wonder about the QC of these toys...especially the paint apps...my Starscream's face was all messed up...going to do a little repaint of my own to fix him up right...my Bumblebee has some bad areas too...

    Yea, these guys are my favorite ones since G1. I haven't had a QC issue, so thats a bonus! BA just doesn't compare to the rest though, she topples over with just a wrong look, LOL. Can't wait for the next wave of these guys!
