Acworth SuperWalmart has 4xCosmos + 4xSeaspray - 1xSeaspray.
Beat me to post but the Acworth Walmart now has 1 less seaspray. Be warned that the packages are pretty beat up.
What scale? Looking for the 1:24 Prime, Bee, and Crosshairs then Hot Rod in 1:32 Hot Rod.
Now I have to figure out what to do with myself until POTP. The only things left in my list are Fort Max and Trypticon, but not sure I want to invest that much $$$ and space.
I don't know about the scales, but I know they were a little bit bigger than the hot wheels cars, almost the same size as the turbo changers. They had Bumble bees and crosshairs.
I forgot to mention windward Pkwy Walmart also had flip and change hot rod.
A bunch of voyager hounds at Duluth Walmart yesterday
Saw TR Sixshot, Sky Shadow, Seaspray at Wal-Mart Memorial Drive the one inside I285, by the China Cafeteria.
Fayetteville TRU: 2 MP10, 3 Chaos on Velocitron, 1 Fortmax, & 1 TLK Leader Megatron.
The Smyrna Target off Cobb Parkway had TLK Leader Megatron and OP. Also 3 warrior Windblade figures from RiD. Nothing else of note.
Cumming Walmart has 1 Sixshot and Two Skyshadows. They also have the new Flip change Bumble Bee.
Cobb TRU has 1 Chaos, 1 MP-10, 3 Skullitrons.
Douglasville Target has 2 Octanes and 2 Blitzwings.
Fayetteville Walmart has a cosmos and a seaspray. The TRU there has a couple of chaos Velocitron sets.
McDonough tru: left 3 mp-10 on the shelf, there was a velocitron set there as well.
Flip n change hot rod at Walmart Buford.
Called Kennesaw TRU to find out about Trypticon. Was told that they had 2 in the system but that it must be a mistake because he can't find them. A "mistake" is showing 200% higher than the quantity you supposedly have? They said they only get 2 a case. Decided to fire up Amazon and there is was easy as pie for the same price with Free 2 day shipping. Got it in yesterday. Still up if anyone is interested
Yeah this is why I don't trust the store websites, such as TRU and Targer. The system they use is about as useless as a screen door on a submarine.
The system is subject to human error. Target's inventory is top notch, TRU is okay. If items are stolen, hidden or not scanned to a back location properly they will show quantities that can't be found. At TRU, I couldn't believe how much product I found under base decks. Lift them up and you find a lot of hidden product.
I wouldn't say just human error, but you are right. For me it goes both ways, due to experience. Apparently because the bar codes and DPI on certain Transformers say for example, the TR deluxes, are all the same, the system can't tell the difference between one TR from another. So when Target online will say, "This figure is in stock at this location" it is actually reading the information on the other deluxes, not a particular one. It feels more like it might be a manufacturing problem, but when the deluxes are meant to be the same price of course they're going to have the same DPI and bar codes.
TLDR version: certain Transformers toys will have the same data information as others, therefore the system can't see what's actually what.
