TFA found at Walmart!

Postby Real One » Sun Jun 01, 2008 10:28 am

I went to Walmart (Nevada) this morning and found a bunch of Animated TFs. I got Bulkhead and Bumblebee. I also found some at another Walmart and bought the only Grimlock. :grin:

Still, if it's true, it is major news! Animated in the USA outside of Ohio! And Grimlock too!!!

I been keeping an eye out for these with all the sightings.

Maybe the hunt is in my blood, or maybe I keep forgetting that I have them all preorderd.

Which ever it is, nothing in Jersey yet.

Why not? They’ll be out very soon so they could show up anywhere.

True or not, it shouldn't be front paged without at least the traditional evidence.

I was really hoping something like this would happen. The same thing happened with the movie toys last year.

Looks like Transformers Animated Grimlock and Lugnut will be out earlier than expected, scheduled to release with the rest of the Animated figures in June 2008. The update is as follows:


http://seibertron.com/transformers/news/bbts-to-have-animated-lugnut-and-grimlock-early/13170/

Why don’t you guys go read on some facts before calling people liars.

Oh, and is that pictures I see?

Thanks for the pics Real One. Some people just refuse to believe anything they are told unless they have physical proof.

Proper! Nice score man.

As for the whole Grimlock issue, it's pretty comon for a figure from an upcoming wave to sneek in alittle early.

I think most people didn't want to believe.. i.e myself. guess i'll make a walmart run today.. i doubt i'll find anything though.. when some of the movie figures were being put on the shelves early, i found a leader prime, didn't have enough money, ran home to get more, came back, got it, then at the register they said that it wasn't in the system yet and shouldn't have been on the shelves, i was P O'd

Go figure(no pun intended), I have alot of money saved up and BAM, need to get my car fixed tomorrow. But if it's just wal-mart then no thanks. Too far for me to go but if theres any reports for Target then yea I'd go.

Wish I had a wal-mart closer to me :(

There is a seller from Cali who has perfect feedback and while they're more expensive than the others, the fact that you'll actually get your items...yeah.

Grimlock:

Lugnut:
http://cgi.ebay.com/TRANSFORMERS-ANIMAT ... dZViewItem

Though...this proves one thing... the rumors of Voyager Prime (wave 2) being delayed, seems to be true.

That's waves 1 and 3 that both sellers on eBay have. Wave 2 included Optimus.

Well it's good to see that it is true.

I don't see any problem with believing that that was a lie.. seeing as the "Official" release date was June 22.

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.
