Shockwave14 has posted to let everyone know that he's found Voyager Brainstorm at a Wal-Mart in National City, California. Posting an image of his receipt for proof, it looks like Brainstorm's case revision is hitting just in time for what we can hope will be quick distribution around the US for the major holiday shopping weeks. Hopefully this will also mean online retailers receive their stock very soon as well. Good hunting!
