View Full Version : Transformers Blackout
Mar 1, '08, 2:17 PM
This is the only present my son *really* wants for his birthday this year (in about six weeks) I haven't seen them in the store since before Christmas, and all the eBay scalpers and r#pists are just being stupid with them.
So, if anybody spots one of these in their local Wal-Mart, Target, TRU, etc:
*Please* grab it and give me a yell. I almost had one thorugh Hasbro's website last night, but in the time it took me to click it and put it in my cart, someone else snagged it. I keep telling myself that it's at least going to some kid like my son who truly wants it, but with my faith in humanity currently shaken (see Just got layed off - Mego Talk (http://megomuseum.com/community/showthread.php?t=9157)), I'm pretty sure it was one of the scalpers.
Apppreciate the help,

You may want to post your cell number (if you don't mind) so if any one finds one, they can call you from the store and see if you or someone else has found one yet. This will just keep multiple people from possibly buying one for you. I will stop on the way to work here in a couple hours.
I just check walmart.com, they are sold out.

A good idea . . . except I don't have a cell phone, barbarian that it makes me.
Thanks for looking, though, guys!

On a whim, I went back to Walmart.com, and they had him in stock! :grin:
I dunno if it was a return or what, but I went ahead and ordered him. In a week, hopefully, I should have my son's birthday present taken care of.
Thanks for taking a look and helping me out, guys. I really appreciate it.
