    I just found Thundercracker at mine despite having him since the summer. But other then that we stopped getting any new Transformers that aren't Rescue Bots, hell when we do its just restocks on the Wave 2 deluxes over and over again. The only Siege figures we don't carry are the leader, battle master, & micromaster size classes as well as Springer & the rest of the deluxes post Wave 2.

    Amazon better get Spinister in soon, he's the last figure in the line I need and I'm pissed people are finding him & Crosshairs at their Walmarts and I'm stuck on Chromia, Prowl, & Six-Gun for days.

    Just order from BBTS. This garbage with Walmart is never going to end as long as you keep running around like rats in a maze.

    That doesnt look like a regular US store shelf in the photo, and it was 40 online for a majority of the time it was available to preorder. While Walmart isnt perfect, I cant go to any walmart without seeing a ton of these, so theyre not selling anymore and likely will hit clearance.

    My Walmarts across two counties never got any of them. I preordered mine when they were $30 even. Their online algorithm has been stupid all year. If they drop, I may order some to flip in areas that Walmart hates.

    Picked up my bluestreak yesterday at the Walmart for $19.99 plus tax.
    Well worth the wait.

    So if the stores dont have the displays out by now, then it means were boned, right? Or is it likely they are still on a pallet in one of the containers out back just waiting to be put out?

    Cause none of the 6 walmarts across three counties in my area got these in and im not about to pay 40 bucks for a repaint online.

    It appears to be the case? IIRC the two Walmarts I know of who got the display are still the only ones who seem to be getting these in. I JUST got a Bluestreak over the weekend at one of those two Walmarts. The Walmarts that never got the display don't seem to be ever getting any of these exclusives.

    They don't need to have the display out to carry the figures. There's a lot of Walmarts around here. Only one was carrying the anniversary figures, several copies of each, and there was no special display. Jokingly, it would seem like this one store took all the other stores' inventory.

    Ordering online is your easiest option.

    I bought 35th Bluestreak.

    I'm not very interested in Siege 35th Optimus and Megatron.

    My Walmart actually has all the 35th figures on shelves at the front of the store with the "hot ticket holiday items"

    ...yeah, i thought i was, but upon seeing them in-person, the tampo execution isn't quite clean-enough to sell the cell-shading effect, especially on megatron: bluestreak only for me, too...

    ...i'm content to sit with just my masterpiece optimus and megatron; maybe i'd pull the trigger for a G2-style color scheme?..

    The Wal-mart I work at finally put the 35th figures up. I already had Bluestreak (ordered him online), and I have no interest in the other three. I will say, they look really good in person.

    I have several Walmarts in my area and I still haven’t seen these except for just 1 random Megatron sitting on the shelf alongside the other Siege Voyagers. It must have been a return from either an online order or someone who bought it in a different area. I’m glad I picked him up.

    ...at my local walmart, the special 35th display went up on an endcap in the toy section for a day or two in early-november, then was pulled into backstock until wednesday night just before thanksgiving, when they set it behind all the christmas merchandise toward the front of the store for about a week, after which it was taken down and the remaining 35th exclusives were intermixed with the regular stock on the usual pegs...

    Surprised to see the 35th anniversary figures at my Walmart, they don't usually carry their own exclusives. Was lucky enough to get both the Optimus and the Bluestreak as those are long gone now. Also picked up a Megatron, which they had a few still left. Soundblaster looks great in hand but decided not to get him.

    You can actually get bluestreak online again, thats how I got mine. Optimus was sold out, oddly I had one randomly just show up in one of my stores like others have had happen, so thats how I got mine.

    I'm wanting soundblaster, but I haven't seen one show up yet in store and I am not about to pay 40 dollars online for a repaint of a figure you could get for 25 bucks not to long ago. I also still need to get megatron, but I've put him on the back burner since I dont see all that much different from the standard retail version.

    I'm in the camp of "cell shaded beats bird shit" paint apps.

    I knew I'd love the cell-optimus, but I wasn't expecting to be impressed by a megatron recolor this much.

    Most people are against the cell-shaded megs because they already forked out for the first release... understandable to not want to double-dip... but the hate is unwarranted.

    Besides, cell-megs is more g1 colored accurate, even on the abs. ;)
