Though most of you colonial types can order the bulk of the TF range from BBTS and get a flat rate cheapo delivery cost without incurring customs charges. Which was the point I was making which somebody didn't quite get (nearly, but not quite - we're not talking toy collecting in general, we're talking TF collecting in specifics) - I'd go back and quotage the exact text and guff like that, but I really can't be arsed since people started flying off the handle and dragging terrorism into it. It's not worth the hassle.

Its a Walmart Exclusive
You can order it into any Walmart from any computer.
There are several Walmarts within a few miles radius of your home.
You pay for it when you pick it up.
You go home.
So how can you say you wont be able to lay your hands on one???
You seem to have changed your tune somewhat as now its not so much about availability and about the cost and not being able to afford it.
If you are financially embarrassed just say so but dont blame availability.

http://www.walmart.com/search/search...e=Find&ic=24_0

firstly, here's a link, i did a key search of ALL the stock. notice it only has five items, NONE of which are the masterpiece starcream. now here is another link:

http://www.walmart.com/search/search...e=Find&ic=24_0
still no matches, even though i changed the tune of the search. thirdly, i will do it by just doing the collectibles section:

http://www.walmart.com/search/search...+125871.278352

notice that ALL three of the matches even under the transformers brand, then collectibles have no starscream MP toy in them. i rest my case.

i do not know where other collectors live, but here, if it IS NOT IN THE ****ING system period, they will not order it. if i cannot find it, they will not be able to (at times depending on the manger, i could always just walk up to a random employee at the info desk and ask and quote them and then paste the quote, but now i would still hear a few "well you didn't try hard enough" lines from others in this discussion.) if you can find it, kudos, but i know the stores locally better than anyone else because management differs from area to area. and that's all i have to say on this matter period.

edit*
i followed some leads on the original forum where it "said" it was a wal mart exclusive, then that was negated early in the convo on those boards, i honestly didn't feel like scrolling through hours of text in those boards, so i did my own research, i went to toys r us, the first lead and this is what i found n my searches.

http://www.toysrus.com/search/index.....01+-+%2475.00

http://www.toysrus.com/search/index....S/2254197&sr=1

http://www.toysrus.com/search/noResu...ece+starscream

as you all can see i found nothing, BUT i knew i had better luck finding them on BBTS and Amazon.com and of course, Ebay.

http://www.amazon.com/Transformers-M...3407506&sr=8-1
so far that was one of the cheaper prices i noticed due to the japanese thing.

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/p...57&mode=retail
again found, but sold out.

(i am not going to even do the ebay search because it's pointless because i know he is there)

now, i will state again, it's horrid when i find him two out of four TRUSTED sites. and i see no "repaint" version of him so far (just phoned the stores and they didn't even know what i was talking about, or i just was in touch with incompetent people to begin with) *takes a deep breath* i think i proved my point now.

Both of you hush. Getting into a pissing match about who has a harder time finding toys is stupid.

That's because it's not out yet, and won't be out for months. Try searching again closer to the actual release date.

Democracy in its finest form people see these online petitions really do work-I mean look at the one to stop Optimus having flames in the movie that really showed Bay whose boss.
Oh wait a minute......
