Whats the best beans for bodybuilding protein, that can be bought at the store (walmart). I read that a lot of beans that have high protein are incomplete proteins so they may not have what body building needs?

All beans are a source of incomplete protein which means that they are lacking in one more of the essential amino acids. Beans can be combined with other foods which contain incomplete proteins to create a complete protein meal but I wouldn't worry about stuff like that unless you're a vegetarian.

so all beans have the amino acids that are required for muscle synthesis?

I've heard beans and rice makes a complete protein. Hooray for bulking up!
