    I was looking at the acklay beast saga figure. According to Hasbro's website the figure comes with removable guts. Why would you sell a toy that comes with guts that a child would play with.

    Uh, just so I don't have to start a new thread on this, shouldn't this thing be out already? I have yet to see it. :(

    They have been cluttering the shelves at my Wal Mart since early this past summer. I'm getting one for Christmas.

    As for the guts, I think most kids would find it "cool".

    -"It comes at Walmart?"

    "Mmm!"

    -"I'm getting one!"




    :p But seriously, I've look all over the place and can't find it. :(

    I found a few at a Walmart a few months back and bought 1 for me and 1 for a friend. That weekend I saw at least 8 more at other Walmarts but havent seen it since

    Question: Is this a Wal-Mart exclusive?

    (If so, that's probably why I haven't seen it at all the other stores I've been looking at! [face_shocked] )

    The distribution of the Acklay has been haphazard at best... I only once ever got to see it in a store shelf...

    As for the guts, hey, why not? The Tauntaun should have come with guts, too... ;)

    P.S. No, it's not supposed to be an exclusive... though for some reason WM seems to have got most of them, I think.

    Have you ever noticed that Taun-Taun guts look strangly like tapioca pudding?


    Yah, I think it's weird too. :p

    Hmm. I always thought they looked like the inside of the "potato puffs" at school. :p

    I have never seen the Acklay once in the stores, and I go to at least two per week. I have seen the Reek on occassion, and have seen the Nexu everywhere.

    They had the Acklay at my target like 2 months ago, but only for a couple weeks. I fortunately found mine back in July while on a family vacation in Montana. At some random store I did not recognize the name of. I was stunned and immeadiately bought it. it's one of my favorites.

    Anyways, my point being, I have seen it at two stores other than wallmart. :p

    It's not a Wal-Mart exclusive, I've seen it a few times at TRU and we don't have Wal-Marts in UK!!!

    Same here as it is with saber_holder, I see these thins all the time at every WalMart I go to. Actually, since we have so many and no one seems to be buying them I decided to wait on getting one figuring that they'll go on sale/clearance soon.

    I've seen it at Target, Wal-Mart and Toys-r-us. I got it on sale for 9.99 at Target in the summer.
    Happy Hunting!

    Crap. I never saw them in the summer, so I assumed they simply hadn't gotten here yet.

    Now you tell me they might be gone forever! :_|

    Here in Oz thoes things are literally stacked to the ceiling in some stores,
    Though the only time I saw it in Target there was only one and it was on Sale for half price, So that is when I finally bought it a couple of months ago.

    I hunted for 2 weeks, I finaly caved in and ordered it of the net. a few days latter I find Wal Mart is full of the things. I buy one there. The one of the net came about a week later.

    i got my acklay from toys R us online...

    as for the guts...I'd rather of had it containing a sound thing than guts, since it'd last longer (batteries are replaceable, guts aren't)
