It looks like the Transformers Movie toy craze has begun. Today Walmart.com has posted listings for both Transformers Movie Preview figures Optimus Prime and Starscream. Both figures were listed as in stock earlier today but are now listed out of stock. Also the page for Optimus Prime will no longer display.

By "Prima," you mean "Prime," right?

Was this real or are they going to cancel the orders?

They did the same thing with Cybertron Metroplex, they listed him way to early with Menasaurs picture.

I was going to type something really sarcastic. But desided that it's not worth it, these dumb figures are going to come out and people will buy them. I'm sure there will be a couple of good looking movie figures, but the preveiw figures are not them. It's best to save that 20 bucks for something worth while. But if you like those "flaming turds", get them it will just make room for good figures, like more overstock Sgt. Slaughter/Iron Sheik 2 packs. :P

I ordered them this morning. It has my order listed as pending. I'm waiting for the email tomorrow that says these items are on backorder or that my order has been canceled. If they somehow got a set early, then I'll share the galleries with you guys as fast as I can when I receive them. I "paid" for overnight shipping so I should hopefully receive them on Thursday.

Preach on, that basically sums up my opinion on the movie figures in general.

That's just your opinion and that's fine, but most likely the majority of the people on this site will buy them. I definitely will have them.
