    There is no "preview wave". The only preview item released was Amazon's Optimus Prime "First Edition".

    These are leaks, either people playing the system at best, or at worst, stealing product. Hasbro set a definite street date, so I don't know why Canada of all places is ignoring it.

    Of course when you have dipshits willing to spend 3-4 times retail on something that will be painfully plentiful for the next 6 months, I can't begrudge the sellers too much.

    Got Optimus on the way, and my friend just found me Voyager Grimlock, the 4 Deluxes and Constructbots Grimlock. Next Monday is going to be awesome. I think my Arcadia YF-19 will also show up that day.

    Ebay:
    I just want Crosshairs and Evasion Prime, but refuse to pay the ludicrous prices on Ebay.
    Rewards of patience I guess.
    Though, would anyone have the numbers so the rest of us hunting can see if our stores have them in, or coming in soon.

    Well it seems that a certain area in ontario has them. It's a 30 minute drive from where i live. Traffic is horrible there so i'll just go to the walmart where this grimlock was spotted. it's 5 minutes from my house.

    I'm getting more and more jealous of these people.

    No reviews yet?

    I called Walmart today, still nothing.

    Calling Walmart is an exercise in futility.
    They aren't supposed to be out, so there won't be shelf tags to check, and nobody is going to dig through a back room to see if a few toys are back there (especially if they aren't even supposed to be on the floor).

    From my experience working at Walmart, in all likelihood, most have (or will have in the next couple weeks) inventory for the big push the line will get in mid-May.
