The gamestop in burleson gets them in on wednesday mornings (atleast they used to)... Best bet is to camp out one of these stores and wait for fed ex to show

How much you looking to spend?

Well they retail for $249 when people aren't capitalizing on reselling them for $500

so I'd be comfortable with maybe $350, but anything more than that is too much... I just don't have the $ I usually do at christmas since I lost my job in October

This temp job pays the bills but not much else

Just call the stores people dont think about, you'll find one. Check Toys R Us, Blockbuster, Target, etc.

I walked through Best Buy at 8:30 on a Wed night and one was just sitting on the table. Its just luck of the draw, but typically people dont try the stores mentioned compared to BestBuy, Circit City, WalMart

some people are like slinkies; they're completely useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

A chick from my work got one at Target a week or two ago. Are they really that tough to find?

If you still haven't found one, call the local walmart. Find out when they will get some in and go up there at midnight when they release them.

Newbies, please watch THIS before posting.

target is your best bet. i looked for one for 4 months. I just looked at target, wallmart, game stop etc when i was either in there for other reasons or in the neighborhood. I found mine at target and they had three at that time...... week later they had 4 sitting there. i'm sure they are going quicker given the time of year. I should have bought all of them i could find!
