Yesterday, the SEIBERTRON.com news staff and other major Transformers websites reported that the Transformers Movie Optimus Prime and Starscream "Protoform" figures were listed on Wal-Mart.com. For those of you who were lucky enough to purchase an advanced shipment of Transformers Movie preview figures from Walmart yesterday, I've got great news for you! I just checked on my order with Walmart.com. According to the website, my order has already shipped. I should have the Transformers Movie preview figures in my hands tomorrow. If that's the case, I will post galleries as fast as I can tomorrow night to share with the entire online Transformers community.

Just so that you guys can join in on the fun tomorrow, here's a link to the UPS page that tracks my order: http://wwwapps.ups.com/tracking/tracking.cgi?tracknum=1Z3AE0121350452988

Just the preview figures (and I think there are only 2 Protoform Prime and Starscream?). Much like The 3 new Star Wars movies each movie had like 4-8 "preview" figures that came out a few months before the main movie toy line. The Transformers Movie Toy Line is supose to debut on June 2nd.

THough your right about it being a little crazy it's only the begining of Feb!

And these two figures are supposed to be released on May 2nd, a month before the rest of the movie figures. This is pretty bizarre in my book.

Ohhh I didnt know that the preview figures were only supose to be out a month before the official line. We are also seeing a lot of finished toys in packages for the movie figures on Ebay and such. I wonder if the whole thing is being moved up?

I think Wal-Mart screwed up. Although this could just be corporate saying, crap we are sitting on inventory, let's ship it before the quarter ends to realize some revenues!

I think that it is. I think someone in marketing said "hey, we need to start promoting this stuff as soon as possible to generate more interest." At least, that's how I feel things are going.

That's probably more like it. Notice that the original links to these items no longer even work. I'm just thrilled that I was able to take advantage of this situation.

Yeah, I didn't really want to do that. But since I'm flying out to New York on Friday night after work and won't be returning until next Wednesday, I decided that I wanted to make sure that I could post the galleries of these figures on the site before anyone else could do it. Plus the way I'm looking at it, this is still probably cheaper to buy the figures this way than it would've been had I bought them on eBay, especially since these somehow came out 3 months early.

I'm very skeptical about all of this. I believe it when I see it later today. I already have my camera packed in my laptop bag so that I can take a couple of quick pics at work later when they arrive. Plus I should be getting Minerva MIB stickers unapplied today (at least I hope so) so it's kind of a crazy day for me to get Transformers.
