    Starkville MS Wal-Mart has PL Optimus as well as the new mini-con teams (they are on the top shelf) and they also just received a new shipment of Transformers Universe (Snarl, Silverbolt and Reptilion)

    MS Gulf Coast update!

    Pascagoula Wal*Mart has one Reptelion left. In terms of new Armada figures, they received a restock of two more PowerLinx Primes.

    Ocean Springs Wal*Mart has several cases of the Universe deluxes. A few pegs down from the Armada figures.

    D'Iberville Wal*Mart. MOTHERLOAD! Wave 6 Deluxes are out in southern Mississippi. There is at least one more set of the new figures (including the beasts and Autobot symbol deluxe Prime) on the pegs and on the riser above. If they're gone by the time you check this place, keep checking daily. They had at least eight cases marked "Wave 6" on the pallet still.

    My journey stopped at D'Iberville since I saw Wave 6 there, but I assume that the Gulfport Wal*Mart on Rt. 49 will likely have Wave 6 as well. Those two stores always seems to be in sync with stock.

    Found Armada Airazor at Wal-Mart. Missed out on all the others. Should have known that the one day I don't go to Wal-Mart and they get all the new supercons in. Maybe they will get some more later this week...

    Ocean Springs Wal-Mart had an Overload left after I snagged one and the last Skywarp.

    HOWEVER, Gulfport Wal-Mart had a good, little stash of them on the top shelves.

    Nothing at the Biloxi Wally World and the TRU only had the shelf warmers and some Op Primals and Razorclaws.

    Add Pascagoula to that list. Snagged one of each of the Overload and Skywarp at the Wal*Mart. One of each left as of 6 AM this morning.

    D'Iberville Super Wally World now has several Tidal Waves in now, as well as its continuing Hadrian's Wall motif of Optimus Primes, all versions. The Galvatrons and Jetfires that came with Tidal Wave also have the Universe CD in them. I don't know about the Tidal Waves because they are on the upper shelf and I bought mine in New Orleans last week (without CD).

    The Pascagoula Wal*Mart stocked one case of the Universe Wave 1 Deluxes WITH the CD.

    They also in the midst of performing the zone re-org. Super-Cons now have 8 pegs, Mini-Cons have three. The Giga and Max-Cons still have shelf space along with Super-Base Prime. There is also a sticker out for Unicron. No Unicrons yet.

    Had to go grocery shopping after work and discovered 6 BTR Smokescreens buried underneath other Lego-type boxes on the aisle in and across from the Transformers section at the Pascagoula Wal*Mart. 5 left.

    Pascagoula Wal*Mart also has BTR Jetfire, nearby the BTR Smokescreen I described above.

    Go-Bots Hauler is now in stock there as well.

    And now, the Chaos comes to the MS Gulf Coast.

    Found a Unicron at the Pascagoula Wal*Mart. Bought the one they had on the regular shelf for Unicron and Super Base Prime. I was running late, so I didn't get a chance to see if there were more up on the riser.

    Since Pascagoula got theirs in today, I'd assume the Ocean Springs, D'Iberville, Biloxi-Pass Rd, and Gulfport-Rt.49 Wal*Marts got theirs in as well...or will VERY soon.

    D'Iberville, MS, Super Wally World now has the latest wave of supercons including the Powerlinx figures as well as Cheetor and the 2 newest minicon teams, though the redecco race team was gone when I got there.

    The Hot Shot figures are the grey foreheaded ones.

    Cyclonus actually looks really nice in green, but I don't care too much for the blade coloring, rather eggplantish.

    Thrust doesn't look as bad as I imagined in person, and it is amusing to see his package has him in the red variant instead of brown and blue.

    These beast transformers have quickly grown on me after finally watching Beast Wars and Machines after all these years. I really dig Cheetor's Armada scheme.

    K-Marts in Gulfport are trying to bring it to the table now. Both the Big K on Highway 49 and on Pass Road have the PL supercons and maxcons and gigacons, including PL Red Alert, PL Jetfire and the beast repaint Predacon.

    TF's Everywhere!

    All of the Wal-Mart stores near me (including Carthage, MS..Philadelphia, MS...Meridian, MS (2 locations) ..Jackson, MS (2 locations) have plenty of all of the above listed items (supercons, powerlinx, mini-cons, overload, tidal wave, etc) . The Jackson MS TRU also has all of these items plus Razorclaw and Optimus Primal. Almost all of the Wal-Mart stores also have several sets of the Wave 1 and Wave 2 Universe re-paints. Also, just in case anyone is still looking..all of the stores mentioned have at least two Unicrons warming the shelves. Also worthy of mention: Both the Best Buy in Meridian, MS and the Best Buy on Hwy. 80 in Jackson have the Beast Machines KO's in stock. Hope this helps!

    This isn't a sighting as much as it is a request of my fellow Mississippians. :p  If anyone spots the Wal-Mart exclusive dinobots anywhere, please share. Still need those things. And as for my area, nothing new except for the 2 pack mini-cons sale at my local Wal-Mart (Philadelphia, MS) Spotted only five different mini-con teams. TF Universe toys have been a big hit and quickly flew off the shelves but are now fully restocked at said Wal-Mart in Philadelphia. (Which also has an endcap of Unicrons, a crapload of Armada (regular and powerlinx) , and plenty of G.I. Joe Spytroop 2 packs just warming the shelves)
