    Walmart has had issues with Wave 1 pre-orders getting stuck. Lots of us just had to re-order. I did get UM shipped.

    Ah, thanks for the info. I managed to reorder everything but Chromia and Megatron... Sheesh... Just burn brick and mortar to the ground... Pulse beats them at everything.

    What does B&M have to do with walmart.com? I had to cancel some of my orders from wave 1 as I was able to find them at local stores. Only had difficulty with Scrapface set, and was the only ones that I re-ordered.

    Because the Netflix series is Walmart-exclusive. A lot of us don't have any Walmarts nearby and their WM.com is not protected against scalper bots. So for someone in NYC, it's either struggling with their shitty website or buying things off online / store scalpers.

    Understood, but there are other online options available. Albeit, not the same price as Walmart.com. Many of the TFW2005 sponsors, carried the figures.

    Yes, that's true, and I considered those options but their surcharges were beyond what I was willing to give for something that isn't even a full-fledged redeco. My go-to store, TFSource added almost 30 bucks to the Hotlink set, which definitely feels like scalper price. I'm at least relieved that these aren't original molds but then again, I'd expect something better than a little battle dust if I decided to pay scalpers.

    Stupid question but do we know what’s in the new spoiler set. I know the last one was Ultra Magnus but I can’t remember how that was revealed.

    That would be odd since he has a Voyager release in the same wave.

    Best guesses have leaned towards some kind of Nemesis Prime or, my guess, Coronation Starscream.

    Man, you must have been mad when he wasn't even in the cartoon.
    What? Even backwater towns have Walmarts! How does a place like NYC have no Walmarts?
    :lolol

    I don't think there's been a leak on it yet, but I think one of the more popular guesses is Siege Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime repainted as Nemesis Prime.

    NYC just doesn't have them. It might be something about New Yorkers having issues with shoppers in pajamas and strong BO. Target is pretty well represented though. I heard of a place engulfed in eternal darkness, I think they refer to it as New Jersey. There's a Walmart there but if you don't have a car, it's too far away. :tumbleweed:

    Seattle doesn't have them either, the closest one to me is in North Lynnwood, a good 20 minute drive. they surround the area, but none close in to town. Plenty of Targets though, I think 6 in the city limits.

    The Walmart's address is in Valley Stream, LI.

    So I always thought it was Queens till I met someone who worked there that got taxed via Nassau.
