Walmart.com have added Transformers Classics Voyager class Optimus Prime and Megatron to their online store.

The website has these marked as 'online only' however we have received the following report from Walmart employee King Slick claiming otherwise:

Spotted the cases during lunch while on my lunch break at the Wal-Mart in Casa Grande, AZ, store #1218...the cases read as follows: "Transformers Voyager Classic" which was different from simmiler cases also containing Transformers that read "Transformers Cybertron Voyager".

There were also cases marked "20th Aniversery Optimus Prime"...it is unknown if it is a return of the same 20th Aniversery release from last year or the pre-release figure/DVD (which appears to be a month early as the release was dated for mid-Nov., not early-October). Unfortunately I didn't bother to see if the associate working toys managed to some how put out the figures or not as I work in the grocery isles (and no, there are no signs of any Transformers fruit snacks...yet)


In addition we have unconfirmed Walmart sightings of Optimus Prime and Megatron reported at our Sighting Section.

UPDATE: ShGarland_1383 of our Energon Pub forums has posted the following images of his Transformers Classic Voyager Class Optimus Prime purchaced of the shelf in Arizona. Looks like its official! Classics Voygers are available at Walmart!

Hi - Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com packed full
of Transformers news. We just returned from the Botcon convention and
have all kinds of new items to tell you about.

-------------
NEW ARRIVALS:
-------------

MP-03 MASTERPIECE STARSCREAM: Takara's mind blowing Masterpiece
Starscream is now in stock for $99.99. This figure has a complex
transformation, extreme detail and an awesome sculpt. Our shipment is 80%
sold and the rest of them are flying out the door so don't procrastinate
too long on this beauty.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK10557&mode=retail


MP-04 MASTERPIECE CONVOY & TRAILER: Finally a trailer worthy of the
Masterpiece Convoy. Takara has crafted a highly detailed and fully
opening trailer in perfect scale with Prime so he can now enjoy the
benefits of his traveling lab. This huge set is priced at $189.99 and
will likely be the defining Optimus Prime action figure for all time.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK10608&mode=retail


STAR WARS 12" SIDESHOW: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn are now each in
stock for $49.99. Authentic outfits and more great head sculpts from
Sideshow.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=619

KISS PLAYERS ATARI & AUTOROOPER: Another entry into Takara's off the wall
Kiss Play storyline. This set features a Worlds Smallest Autorooper
Transformer as well as a larger PVC Atari anime style figure - in stock
for $39.99.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK10560&mode=retail


FOUR HORSEMEN - 7TH KINGDOM XETHEUS: The first figure, and leader of the
7th Kingdom, Xetheus - is now in stock for $19.99. There are not too many
of these to go around.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=FHM10002&mode=retail


--------------
NEW PREORDERS:
--------------

TRANSFORMERS ALTERNATORS: Ravage & Rumble have just been announced!
Ravage will be none other than a Jaguar XK, and Rumble is a Honda Civic Si
with huge piston style hands for pounding the ground. These are available
singly for $24.99 and $27.99 respectivly, and also as part of a new case
assortment with 2x Ravage, 1x Rumble, 1x Mirage for $89.99. Mirage is
also back up for preorder at $23.99
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=11

E-HOBBY THS-02B - BLACK OPTIMUS PRIME: E-Hobby comes through with another
nifty repaint, the THS-02 figure was wildly popular and this repaint comes
with a few extra heads and cannons as a bonus. Scheduled to ship in
February, this new exclusive will be a limited edition as always and is
priced at $84.99
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK10661&mode=retail


TRANSFORMERS CLASSIC DELUXE: Grimlock and Mirage join the original four
figures in the second wave of Classic figures. They are unfortunately
both short-packed so our single figure listings for Grimlock & Mirage are
higher than I'd like them to be, but we've put together some very
reasonable package deals: $89.99 for a case of 8 figures, and $69.99 for
a set of all 6 of the classics released so far. Another set of the first
four figures can't hurt anyways - its always fun to display both modes at
once.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=943&company=0&category=2582


TRANSFORMERS 6" TITANIUM: Hasbro debuted a bunch of new 6" Titanium
figures, the first two we can list are Soundwave and Rodimus Prime, priced
at $16.99 each. This series continues to look great and each figure is
fully transformable on top of being die-cast metal.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=700&company=0&category=1979


STAR WARS BATTLE PACKS: We don't have any images yet, but Hasbro has just
announced three new battle packs priced at $23.99 each: Battle of
Geonosis, Capture of Tantive, and Jedi Training on Dagobah. Check out all
the upcoming Battle Packs here:
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=1014

TRANSFORMERS CLASSICS - LEGENDS: Another new price point in the Classics
line-up. These figures will be slightly smaller than a typical 'basic'
sized figure and similar to the 'Legends of Cybertron' line from earlier
this year. The first wave is priced at $17.99 and includes one each of
Fireflight, Leo Prime, Perceptor, and Trypticon.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS12869&mode=retail


BOTCON 2006 EXCLUSIVES: We have a very small number of the 'Dawn of
Futures Past' Boxed and Loose sets remaining for preorder. These will be
arriving to the warehouse on Wednesday when the truck containing all our
convention stock returns. We were not able to secure meaningful stock of
any of the other more limited Souvenir Sets unfortunately.
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=265&category=607

Thanks for your interest in www.bigbadtoystore.com - for those of you who
are into lines other than the Transformers, we'll have more non-TF news
later in the week.

Thanks!
