    Wow. Another massive Walmart fuckup.
    I'll wait for the inevitable general release.

    So, there are no photos or product descriptions, and all the listings are "Out of Stock." Did they sell out immediately (probably to scalpers and bots) or were they never there? Good job, AGAIN, Walmart.

    Would have loved a chance to get Soundwave and the new Ahsoka Star Wars figure, but I never even saw them in stock. Really hate dealing with Walmart collector items. It's been like this for as long as I can remember and shows no sign of changing

    The Cybertronian text on the front of the new spoiler box translates to "FANGTRON GIZA"

    I've been fighting Walmart and scalpers for weeks trying to grab the Masters of the Universe figures that dribble out. And then Gigatron. This ruins the fun of collecting.

    So based on the info we got this morning:

    1. Soundwave will almost certainly find his way to the mainline. That's too popular a character to keep isolated to Netflix. Putting him with his tapes is a good way to create a pack that can sell at Walmart...but they'll want him in the mainline soon enough. I wouldn't freak out if you miss out.

    2. Elita will almost certainly be exclusive to Netflix. She seems like a way to get a second use out of the Arcee mold without taking up space in what was otherwise a pretty G1 centric mainline. Especially since it doesn't appear Arcee is showing up on Netflix. If you want that figure specifically, Walmart's the best bet.

    Oh so it's Nemesis.

    So let me get things straight, the "collector con" for Walmart this whole time was just going to be unveiling and selling things already revealed in the Hasbro stream?

    Don't think so. There's more slots on the listing than there were reveals.

    Seems that way.

    I thought they'd reveal a couple new R.E.D. figures, but nope.

    Five deluxes, two voyagers, and the spoiler pack...that's all the slots, right?

    I wish they would have used Elitas original g1 cartoon head instead of this new one. Unless there is an in strory reason like she gets hurt and later gets her other helmet. and we get a more accurate toy of her sunbow design

    Not saying this toy doesnt look good, it does, just weird she is the ONE and only one that is inspired by her g1 counterpart and I wonder why.

    I'm at work and can't follow anything. Are the walmart reveals supposed to be the same as the ones in Fans Friday?

    Oh snap Netflix Optimus is ER's cab without the trailer? That's a game changer in terms of what it could mean for future figures. Would be cool if this is a tease towards the potential for a SS32/44 situation and maybe a SS35 equivalent?

    I’m interested in 4 maybe 5 of the wave 2 Netflix figures, but I really don’t want to deal with the cluster f*** that is Walmart.com.

    I don’t think getting a pre-order in will be a problem, they’ll just probably never ship the dang things.
