    Bryan Target had the following earlier today:

    1 X Animated Sentinel Prime
    1 X Animated Swoop
    2 X Universe Acid Storm
    3 X Universe Galvatrons

    Bryan Walmart has wave 2 Universe Legends (G2 Megs, G1 Jazz, and G1 Hound) as well as the movie deluxe exclusives.

    College Station Walmart still has animated Blitzwing and exclusive movie deluxes as well.

    Oh, I didn't mean I went to that TRU... Just the local one in Beaumont, here. They seem to not be getting much in lately. Can't really blame them, considering many trucks coming into the area are concerned with bringing in other things... food, water, ice... because of the hurricane.

    Damn you Ike!!!

    Anyway... nothing new seen lately. Seems to be the trend around here.

    KOs (and Non-TFs?) w/ Boys Shirts at Walmart

    Saw these last night at a Walmart in Plano (Ohio @ 121). One of them looks like a repainted Optimus Prime (Armada?). Anyone seen these around?

    Note the difference: Same body, but one has a loader arm and the other a shovel/backhoe.

    And here's the Prime mold. A robot in disguise...in disguise.

    I haven't heard of these before. Only one I'd be interested in is one of the Prime molds, since I don't have that mold anyway.

    Couldn't get pictures of the backs without ripping the toy off the shirt. Maybe another member will get them one day.

    hmm...interesting find, man. That is Cybertron Prime, btw.

    I stocked like 4 cases of the Jazz/Snarl wave at my store. And we have a bunch of Universe Galvatrons and Acid Storms......too bad you can't buy them yet. LOL

    Yay! Someone else nearby. Welcome to the boards, ClockWork. :D 


    Stocked a bunch of Wave 4 Animated Deluxes today. Once again, too bad no one can buy them until the store opens. :(

    Anybody figure out what the deal with Walmart's prices for deluxes are yet for the $7.77 sale. This is what I've experienced.

    Online (current): Universe $7.77; Movie[exclusive] $9.96, Movie[non-exclusive] $7.77
    Houston Meyerland (last week Wed): Univese $7.77, didn't buy anything else.
    Houston Almeda (last sunday): Universe $7.77, Movie[exclusive] $7.77
    Houston Pearland (yesterday): Universe $9.96.

    Did they bump the price back up is each walmart just doing it's own thing?

    I'm afraid I can't really save them, man. There is no where to put them! No more overhead valances to hide them in or anything. Don't worry, though. There is plenty of them. And even more cases I couldn't fit out. Just be there on opening day and I'm sure you'll get one. Especially since our first day open isn't our "grand opening", as far I've heard. Grand opening isn't until a few days after, which means it won't be that busy during the first few days.

    I've seen the wave 4 deluxes at a few Wal-Marts, and they're on sale for $7.77 each, which is pretty close to the "buy two get one free" price, especially when you consider TRU (at least the Lewisville one) charges $10.99 for deluxes.

    I'd be up for grabbing a drink and/or geeking out. Be nice to put some names to faces. Or faces to names. Whatever.

    BTW, has anyone in the DFW area spotted Unicron? I'm kind of on the fence about picking it up, anyone else here planning on getting one?

    I just received Ultra Magnus form Hasbrotoystore...but there was a piece missing from him. There was a little hinge under his left armpit where a piece should have been. The one on the right armpit was there. This means I need to send him back and it will take 21 business days to get him back. This SUCKS. I was so excited to get him. Anyone in Texas see an animated Ultra Magnus anywhere? Just want to find if he is even released yet.
