    Ugh. More Wal-Mart exclusives. Like I said in another thread... and I say this as a former logistics manager for the company... how Wally World handles its online portion of its business is dated and flawed. The Waltons firmly have their head planted up their asses and refuse to shift the company into the modern era and grow with the changing times. Their online portion of their business is a complete afterthought in how it's handled.

    This isn't true at all. All their exclusives are available on their website for months.

    Or if you are able to be patient, easy to find in store months down the road.

    I meant in store, online is a completely different matter. I never saw the clone 2 pack and if it wasn’t for some store reports I would have never seen wreck gar. Walgreens in store is extremely hit or miss.

    That's hardly surprising. Walgreens is one of the last stores I'd expect figures to be sold at, let alone exclusives!

    I have a feeling Walgreens themselves feel the same way...

    Don't worry, it won't happen. The day of it'll be "delayed until August 30th" and then come August 30th it'll be delayed until September 30th and then it'll just be "delayed" and it won't ever happen.

    Oh, and if it does happen they'll introduce Netflix Deep Cover and it'll clearly be a pic of Netflix Cheetor, and when they introduce Netflix Cheetor it'll clearly be a pic of Netflix Ultra Magnus, and when they reveal Netflix Ultra Magnus (which they don't know has already been released) it'll be a picture of TMNT Michaelangelo.

    I'm getting there quickly, man. And look at my signature, I have been collecting for a LOOONG time (since '97). I'm cutting the retailers SOME slack because of all the COVID stuff, but even before then things were steadily getting worse. Eventually it just gets to the point where they're just toys and it's not worth the stress or scalper money of trying to track 'em down. Maybe I'll just stop once I reach 5,000...

    They were Halloween themed recolors of Beast Wars toys. They were Leatherhide (Soundwave redeco) Vs Blackarachnia and Nightprowler (Cheetor redeco) Vs Waspinator.

    I have a theory, that a new Ultra Magnus is coming, but it will have a earth cab, and lose the armor up gimmick. An 86 studio release. In the movie he never had an inner bot. Hasbro knew this would be devisive so they made Siege version first.

    Thus a true Delta Magnus with inner bot, may not be possible. Also the reception of Netflix Magnus may kill the Siege mold forever. Not because they think we wouldn't buy Delta....but that Walmart wouldn't....

    There are now more options than ever for Magna Convoy, well see though.

    Not here it's not. I only just started seeing it trickle in last week. Not a big deal because it's warmed over Siege with no media tie-in but still.

    Spock: Admiral, if we go "by the book," like Lieutenant Saavik, hours could seem like days.
    Kirk: I read you captain. Let's have it.
    Spock: The situation is grave, Admiral. We won't have main power for six "days". Auxiliary power has temporarily failed. Restoration may be possible, in two "days". By the book, Admiral.

    You mean you're tired of looking at yellow Daredevil or black Ant Man figures that look like they've been to Hell and back twice?
