    LOL! Sounds just like Walmart New Hartford! Ravage, Laserbeak & Rumble! There has to be at least 80 total!

    Dude, I'm starting to get worried about this Distribution. I want leader Optimus and Rodimus Prime, Only saw them once and hearing Wave 2 is already coming? Afraid I'm not gonna Get Rodimus. Mind you wave two is hitting fast yet We barely seen later waves of the Last Knight Figures, and I've never seen Titans Return Perceptor or Windblade in the wild. Or the Final wave of Titans Return Voyagers. Starting to think I need to take some trips To OLLIES or TJ MAXX and see if they start appearing there.

    It's quite disheartening. I like to see my figures before I buy them. Too many issues with QC and stickers now a days so I'm hesitant to buy online.

    Probably put it out too early. I tried to buy a TR Overlord last year and it rang up for $1. They wouldn’t sell it to me saying they weren’t supposed to have it but it was on the shelf...gotta love Walmart...

    Did they scan okay? Some peeps are having issues with them not ringing up? I’m heading up to Webster tonight but dont want to bother if they are going to give me a hard time.

    Glenmont Walmart- Rodimus Unicronus, OP and wave 2 legends.

    East Greenbush Walmart- Same

    Latham Walmart- Same I think.

    Albany Walmart-Rodimus unicronus and OP, no legends.

    Henrietta Walmart had 1 Tailgate, Battleslash, and Roadtrap today- I picked up the Battleslash and Roadtrap, but encountered the issue with them not being in Walmart's computer yet. I was at the self checkouts though, and the guy working there just asked me how much they were on the shelf and he rung them in manually (I said $9.97 because I didn't expect it to work and didn't want to lie :lol  ).

    Also for those interested, there were 5 SNES Classics available as well. This was as of ~2:30 PM.

    I wonder if the Hasbro barcodes somehow aren't in the system - in Webster, EVERY Legend had one of these Walmart stock stickers placed over the card's UPC, and they worked.

    Non-TF, but if anyone sees the new DC Multiverse "Signature Collection" figures (preferably in the Rochester area), please post? (Lynda Carter Wonder Woman, John Wesley Shipp 90s Flash, George Clooney Batman) They're apparently Walmart exclusive, but every sighting so far has been in Canada :\ (but even there, no WW yet)
    BBTS has Flash and Batman, but Flash is only available as a package deal, not separately :(  (don't want Batman)

    Our surrounding states (PA, NJ, MA, OH) all have sightings of Elita 1 & Hun-Gurr at their area Walmarts. Soon I hope here in NY!

    Just picked up Battletrap and Tailgate at Webster Walmart with no problem... Annnnnd then saw leader Optimus and Rodimus and couldn’t pass them up.

    And as Nemesis Scott said, stickers on wave 2

    Webster still has another Battletrap and Rodimus Unicronus, Voyager Starscream and legends wave 1 as of 7:40pm

    I decided to randomly give my 2 local Walmart's a try and I'm glad I did. Found all 3 legends at one (last of each) and Rodimus Unicronus at the other. Anybody in the Syracuse area, Liverpool Walmart has 1 Rodimus Unicronus left. No legends left at Liverpool or Cicero.

    I've purchased from them shipping costs are high, but they were legit. Faster shipping than I thought, too.

    Ebay:
    My friend lives up by Albany (I don't know the exact area, he just moved there) and he found me Tailgate, Battleslash and Roadtrap at a Wlamart (I think) but said the cashier couldn't ring them up and refused to let him buy them. I was a little bummed but I assume they'll be popping up in my area soon.
