    The Netflix Siegfe first wave fiasco. All preorders kept getting pushed back furhter and further even after they hit stores shelves. Some people still havent gotten thiers.

    But i agree, I havent had much difficulty getting any of the walmart stuff. Just need some patience. I'm rolling the dice and preordering a couple figs, Bee and Elita.....and the Retro Joe HISS tank is too sweet to pass up as well. Not gonna stress on any of the repaints. They look sweet....but I already bought all those figs the first time and these arent "new characters"

    Can't blame Walmart... The moment it was announced as a G1-tape deck everyone was going to jump for it. I wasn't fast or alert enough and neither were you. Just how life goes.

    For all the doom and gloom that was predicted with ordering from Walmart I was able to order everything I wanted (all except soundwave, due to already having the siege one and I don’t need a earth mode one & I already have siege ravage/Laserbeak).

    But on a side note what’s everyone’s guess for the secret figure? I’m hoping for astrotrain or doubledealer or a new character using one of those molds, but I got a bad gut feeling that it’s the horrendously shelf warmer shockwave.

    He didn't though. None of them did. He sold out, but I had plenty of time to add everything to my cart, scan what they were, and drop what I didn't want.

    I've never had a pre-order process for me successfully once via WalMart...oddly enough there are enough well stocked stores nearby that i've been able to find exclusives for the most part.

    Now that I have a new Bee and Cliffjumper, I think I will customize the Classic ones into Glyph and Tap-Out.

    Haha, who said Bumblebee wouldn't be a retool of Cliffjumper? I preordered some of this stuff though. Now let's see if they cancel or deliver...

    Lol. It would be HILARIOUS if both spoiler boxes were Magnus.

    Nah, it's going to be a different character.

    Missed out on Soundwave because I didn’t know what was what because I’m at work and couldn’t see the livestream

    I should rephrase, that wasn't literal. He was the first to sell out. The rest are still available. You might have had time, I didn't.
