Just heard about how great he was and couldn't resist once the price dropped to $50. Took a leap of faith. Hope I'm not disappointed! >:oP

So, how did it turn out?

Wanted to inform fellow members that Walmart is clearancing out alot of current Transformers product, probably to make room for War for Cybertron SIEGE. Of note, my Walmart had POTP Legends for $5 and Reissue G1 Hot Rod for $15.

omg... it's worse than we thought :shock: Worst is that Battleslash was included in the holiday wave, but Roadtrap is not :-x

If anyone has a spare TR Furos, PotP Punch head, CW Dead End, CW Brawl or Swindle, hit me up!

Stocking Stocker Wave :lol: Mine had Windcharger, Beachcomber, Cindersaur and Battleslash. Skrapnel was in them as well, but that could very well be overstock.

That's pretty much the same as everyone found. It was a basically a revision wave made just for Walmart.

Per Entertainment Earth, what you saw was Wave 3, Revision 1 (Battleslash, Beachcomber, Slash and Cindersaur) with the Skrapnels being overstock/shelfwarmers.

My Walmarts hadn't had a Skrapnel in store for over half a year, but he was in the stocking stuffer display so he was definitely part of this Walmart wave.

You can't beat this half price stuff.
So, maybe the wave 1 pricing on HTS wasn't a mistake. :-?

NP anytime, one good enable deserves another ;)^

Sure can't beat half price and it doesn't seem like a mistake, but why are we paying $20 at retail.

I skipped Chromia as I like the Gen version better and I'm going end up with 3 very similar lady bots already.

Alright! Picked up Sixgun!

So I guess Hasbro Pulse is the replacement for HTS? It was certainly a nicer experience than HTS ever was, for me at least. But I don’t remember Hasbro ever saying anything about Pulse being the new platform. Was it just something I missed?
Back at it again!

OK, anyone else having problems with the new Hasbro Pulse site? I want to pay for some items via Paypal, and the option is not coming up for me, their IT chat says "use secure checkout", which of course I am doing, but its only going straight to the credit card screen, and of course their chat window doesn't have the ability to follow you through the transaction, so you lose them right away... :BANG_HEAD: .
