    Super Target in Hillside had two sets of the Siege leaders, and two sets of the voyagers. I Picked up one of each, and thus also left one of each.

    Wave 1 is “always overproduced” when demand isn’t high. Considering there is zero siege product on target Chicago shelves as of today, I think any snoozers might be in for a rude awakening. Better pray for Hasbro Toy Shop to restock. Any day now.... right?

    And since you guys like getting schooled, let’s think for a second. There are four fucking mainlines running as we speak: Studio Series, Siege, Bots Bots oh and did you forget about your pal Cyberverse? There’s also garbage like energon igniters leftover from the BB movie. So tell me again how there’s going to be breathing room for a restock of one wave of one line when two completely new waves are coming in less than a month?

    I’ve seen voyagers all over the place the last few days and deluxes popping up at Walmart’s now. So zero product may be a bit of an exaggeration.

    Hey man, maybe cut the hostility back a tick?

    No one knows what’s going to happen. With POTP, we started seeing wave 3 before 2 and then suddenly 2 came out in droves

    I guess what I forget is that this is the Illinois thread, not the Chicago thread. There aren’t any Walmart’s in the city, aside from the wasteland on north ave with a toy section the size of a bathroom and the half size walmart on Diversey.

    You may have a different situation in the suburbs or more rural sections of the state. All we have is targets here and they’ve now put their stock out and it’s gone.

    Just bought Siege Megatron from the Broadway/Montrose Target last night. Left behind an Ultra Magnus and one each of Megatron and Optimus Prime.

    If anyone's still looking, Ultra Magnus and Shockwave are at Addison Mall.

    the siege stuff is pretty pricey for the size but damn the quality is up there. the only bad figure ive encountered so far is megs, mine has a bad ankle and floppy neck. but thats one figure out of wave 1 so super impressed.

    i might just buy another if I find a retail one and return the defect. I like the figure i just think i got a bad copy.

    Actually I found my Shockwave there but it was on the top shelf on its side in “overstock” but none were below. They also had deluxes as of Tuesday. Golf Mill location

    I’ve also seen the micromaster jets a few times and have resisted buying them. I am determined to not buy everything!

    I stopped going to Walmart’s altogether.
    Mostly for sanity reasons, but partially because they always have nothing.
