    Well not for me.......

    Thinking I will grab one next pay

    It's only 20 above retail for AUD.
    Which is basically ten on top, plus ten for postage, so not entirely unreasonable.

    Has these gone up on Hasbro Pulse? Or did I miss it?

    I wonder if Walmart's going to have him back in stock at any point. I've been checking off and on, but to no avail. Or is this one of those items that goes in and out of stock quickly and it's just my timing?

    So Bluestreak was IN STOCK at Walmart last night...
    FINALLY! I have been waiting months for this!
    I tried to order him many, many, many times, however this error slapped me in the face...
    We're sorry. An error has occurred. Please return to your cart.
    I got the cart error everytime except once, when I clicked the cart button one too many times it bugged out and got me through into the cart, but... my zip code was listed as
    Reno, Nevada! It didn't allow me to change the store pickup to and location outside of Nevada and when I wanted to switch to my store, it told me some of my combined items weren't all available near me (my cart contained only 1 Bluestreak...) it was choosing my nearest location? What??? A few states away is my nearest location???...
    So changing zip codes gave me the following error
    zip code not valid
    How is my zipcode not valid? Seriously...
    So order to home address gave an error all the time.
    It wouldn't allow me to do so either! Trying to checkout under my address gave me this error:
    We're having trouble with your request. Please wait a moment and then try again.

    Anyway the cart error was still there on all other electronic devices I was using to try to order, but lo and behold, as soon as I manually changed my zip code to 89432 (Reno, Nevada), it instantly got me into the cart without problems. Ordering for store pickup at a Nevada located Walmart? No problem at all... But I ain't driving hundreds of miles to pick up Bluestreak...

    So Wow! why is this happening? Walmart is being buggy or what? So I found this article which made me furious! :mad: 
    Idk if I'm allowed to post the link here, the headline is titled:
    Why Walmart Shoppers are Finding More Items ‘Out of Stock’
    By Sarah Nassauer August 31, 2018
    It mentions that "Walmart has begun telling online shoppers that some products in its warehouses are “out of stock” after the retailer changed its e-commerce systems to avoid orders deemed too expensive to ship."

    WTH Walmart... just charge me the shipping to get me my Bluestreak!!!

    So this morning I wanted to head out to my nearest Walmart to place this order in person at the store to try to beat this insanely ridiculous system. But....
    I guess some lucky ones in Nevada beat me to it. Bluestreak is SOLD OUT again... o_O 

    Here's still in my cart... :(

    Has the street date for this hit yet. 9 times out of 10 usually find these exclusives months later, but Walmart seems to be very confused on distributing this item. Trypticon was the only toy I ever successfully ordered from their online store.

    Mine was shipped and either delivered to the wrong house or stolen because the driver couldn't knock on the door to let the room mates know they were there.

    Looks like both my Bluestreak & Soundblaster will arrive at the local Walmart on Saturday. Prime & Megatron do not have a ship date yet.

    My Soundblaster shipped, but Bluestreak is on backorder and may be cancelled? That's the opposite of what some people were saying earlier in this thread (or the other 35th anniv thread) about their Bluestreak shipping with Soundblaster on backorder.
    Walmart really needs to get it together.

    I got one at the same price, he’s pretty worth it in my opinion. The paint and accessories and plastic is all nice, and for once we have an actually good Bluestreak that goes with a killer Prowl and Smokescreen.

    I picked up my BS last week, but then I got a new notification that an order was ready for pick-up and thought it might've been Prime and Megatron. Checked the order number and it was Bluestreak again.

    I guess the cashier forgot to put it in the system that the order had already been picked up?

    Chances are this won't actually make it to the stores. Several people have reported getting emails that their pre-orders are out-of-stock and may even be cancelled. My Soundblaster came in but my Bluestreak is out-of-stock and Walmart is threatening to cancel it :( 
    I doubt they will ever see store shelves if the pre-orders can't even be fulfilled.

    That sounds bad...

    Anywhere online selling them for a reasonable price?

    They really haven't been able to fulfill all pre-orders yet? Walmart's online system is terrible. I missed the pre-orders, but ordered 2 Bluestreaks (one for me and one for a friend) when he first actually came in-stock on their site, and got both a few days later. I'm happy to have gotten them without issue, but it's inexcusable for them to be fulfilling new orders when they haven't allocated stock for all pre-orders.

    I totally agree.
    I ordered Bluestreak and Soundblaster in one order:

    People that have ordered both before and after me have gotten their Bluestreak. I've seen other members here (in the other 35th anniv thread) mention they got their Bluestreak but not their Soundblaster.

    The only figure I found so far was Siege Barricade! the packaging was beat up but he is intact. a nice updated, evil repaint of the Prowl mold.

    Will Walmart even restock at some point? By far the worst place to have an exclusive
