TFA found at Walmart!

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

Well I guess there’s not much of a problem but it’s somewhat rude seeing as how this guy gets on here to show you something that may be helpful and then people just blast and call him a liar.

Maybe instead of calling names, next time ask for pictures instead.


Yeah.. but the likelihood of the whole thing being false was more than it being true.

I don’t see how you come up with that.

Like I already said, BBTS will be getting Grimlock in with the rest of the first wave and some people found the movie toys months before they came out.

The full release of this line is a few measly weeks away, it was very possible and I was right.

Obviously, it wasn't. People should be so quick to cry out 'Liar!'

Just an FYI, TFA toys have also turned up in Indiana. I purchased BB & Ratchet at the Hobart/Merrillville Wal-Mart. Here's pix of the toys, receipt, & one of the boxes on a pallet at the store.

Cut the crap.

1.) Nobody owes you anything.
2.) You're not cool or well known enough to pull that line. (Counterpunch, you ain't.)
3.) There are pictures of the figures being in stock at his store, there are multiple auctions on eBay from American sellers, and a few posters here have shown their proof of figures.

Can you be a better poster? Proof, or it didn't happen.

So wait, are there pics of Grimlock and Lugnut? I'm not saying anyones a filthy liar or anything but I do enjoy pics of a good find.

This makes me wonder if the Battle Begins two pack is coming out in Canada?

Animated has been found at Wal-Mart in Rancho Cordova, CA (Sacramento) as well. I had to meet up with a fellow collector to get him the Deep Space Starscream I got him yesterday. He gave me a call before we met up to say that he found Animated and was buying all he could for myself and another collector. My haul was:

Voyager Starscream
Voyager Lugnut
Voyager Megatron
Voyager Bulkhead
Battle Begins 2 pack
Deluxe Ratchet

I passed on Black Arachnia. Another collector got the rest - Bumblebee, Grimlock (take that doubters!), Lockdown, Deluxe Prime and Prowl. Pics below (take that again doubters!)

Thanks for the pics. I'm glad to see you got a decent haul.

I'm sure everyone is happy to see pics :P

That seller on ebay is a friggin crook but I'm sure someone will buy them for that price.

I've already got the ones I want preordered from HTS and BBTS, but I'll look tomorrow anyway! :lol:

I do not expect to find anything, but I'll look nonetheless.

Posted per instructions here and in my California Sightings thread.

San Jose, CA Walmart on Story Road - TF: Animated

I bought one of every one they had this morning but there was more left when I left. No endcaps or fancy displays, just tucked in among the movie-formers.

Today I went to 5 other Walmarts in the east Bay Area, no others had a trace of animated, just the Story Road location.

The score:
Cybertron Megs
Starscream
Grimlock
Bulkhead
Lugnut
Blackarachnia
Rachet
Bumblebee

Daaaaaaang. That's a haul.

I loves me some Animated. I'm absolutely addicted to the figures I have.

If you guys can find him, Lockdown is excellent. Prowl's another good one. Heck, the entire line is full of win.

Update: I went back to the same Walmart at San Jose, CA Story Road later 06/01/08 at around 9:30 Pacific time. I figured there might be something else out due to re-stocking or store recovery.

I found Prowl:

When I left it was pretty picked over. There were 3 Bulkheads and 1 Starscream left. I searched the other toy sections for mis-placed items, but nothing. I will check again at that location tomorrow.
