    Action figure isle is cleaned up and empty, has all the usual stuff, lots of DOTM stuff, got some Ultimate primes in, but the interesting thing is this...which is a really suprising seeing as we have none.

    Wait, you mean there's Walmarts that don't have TONS of Generations Red Alert, Blurr, Thunderwing, and Skullgrin?

    The Wal-Mart here in VT's sold out of Skullgrin and Thunderwing.

    The pegs reserved for Generations are now stuffed with Thundercrackers, Warpaths, and Wheeljacks.

    No reset here in East Texas,I just went to wally world a few minutes ago,still the same ol' crap at regular price,tho right in front of the toys is tons and tons of school supplies.I wish they would hurry up and mark the DOTM stuff down,I wanna get a bunch of those voyagers for like $7 or $8 to troop build,like Megs,Ironhide and Skyhammer.Might also get some deluxes if they get down to $4 or $5 apiece.Later guys.

    Sounds like Valhalla, home of the toy gods.

    My Wal Mart's in a full reset, too. (entire toy section is being revamped and re-arranged) Maybe I'll actually see some Generations from THIS year.

    Around here, there's only 1 Scourge, 1 Cybertronian Soundwave, and 2 Thunderwings.


    No DoTM Deluxe Wave 2 or Three. Skyhammer, but no Shockwave. No Hatchets, but plenty of Blackouts and Powerglides.

    Walmart is always last when it comes to re-sets.

    What I think is odd that multiple WM actually clearanced HFTD line, not just took off a few cents.

    No reset just the same old same old.

    They don't really care about thw toy department at my store so they don't care about resets either.

    Yea, I was taking to one of the girls that does the stocking in the toy section the other day, she said that it's time for a reset and a LOT of the stuff they have now is going to be clearanced out to make room for the new stuff they've already got in the back. She opened the Marvel Universe Sentinal case and was showing them to me, but she didn't put them out because they had an assigned spot on the new set up but not in the current one. She seemed more enamored with it than I was... I should have grabbed one. :/

    Her words (not mine) were "hundreds of new toys waiting to be put out for the xmas season."

    Yeah, the fall resets should be hitting Walmart next week. Much of their current ad campaign has been pushing the "reduced prices" (ie, clearance stuff to make room for Christmas stuff) until the 15th.

    Reset will probably hit then or shortly there after, but remember like all things Walmart, YMMV on when stuff actually gets done.

    My Walmart's toy section is a mess. There's one aisle that's completely empty. Does that mean they're about to do a reset? I don't know much about how Walmart works.
