    I've been checking 4 Wal-Marts a day. 2 of them I hit between 9:15pm and 10pm because the restocking pallets are out. In total, I've hit about 10 different stores in 3 weeks.

    I'm positive they haven't come though the north and northwest burbs of Chicago.




    I'm giving up real soon.

    I haven't found either of them here. I've checked 6 different Wal-Marts.

    They've been showing up here in California. Lots of them too but for some reason they disappear VERY quickly.

    I know they've made it to Central Florida from other sightings but I have yet to see any of them around here... Starting to get on my nerves at this point.

    No shortage of Devastator sets here. But the new Alts are nowhere to be found on the N/E side of Atlanta. I found an Alt Ravage, but it was a chance finding at a WMT 100 miles outside of ATL when I was on a road trip.

    Two buddies and I have been hitting various Wal-Marts for the last 2+ weeks with zero hint that hey've ever been there. I have seen some Dev sets, but that's it. It is really frustrating because I HATE Wal-Mart, and going in there is like a perverse type fo torture that Hasbro is doing to me.

    I ordered Rumble online, but knowing I am this close to completing my set with no luck sucks.

    I haven't been able to find either but central IN always seems to be slow with getting new TF product.

    They're not exactly next door to Beech Grove, but the Plainfield, Fishers, and Noblesville W*Ms have gotten them.

    Dev - yes
    Alts - no

    I check four different Wal-mart regularly and I've only seen the Dev set at one of them. They had about 12 of them so it looks like the stores that are getting them are getting a lot.

    So how much are these Devastator sets going for?
    Sorry for asking such a retarded question. I just haven't been paying much attention. :lol

    Not seen them here in Bellefontaine, either.

    Considering all the bare shelves in the grocery aisles, I'm not expecting new toys to be a huge stocking concern.
