    Stopped by Jones Valley Target in south Huntsville today and scored a Studio Series Blackout. They had 2 Blackouts after I left. They also had 1 Grimlock and 3 Starscreams. No Optimus Prime.

    DAMN IT!!! Between my wife and me, we've seen PotP Inferno and Grimlock at 3 different Walmart stores around B'ham today. So they're pouring in, and we miss Wave 2 entirely. For those on the Inferno hunt, you're in for a treat. For those of us looking for Hun-Grr and Elita-1, it skipped us entirely... :mad:

    I know it sucks bad but whatever faint consolation it may be, Inferno is AWESOME... I picked up the Inferno TMC was telling us about yesterday and freaking LOVE it. it just hits a classic Autobot note like nothing since the CW Ark combiners, who he fits in with perfectly. I like it so much I would go in for a shameless grapple retool triple dipping. I might even pay a slight premium for an exclusive grapple retool.


    but Yeah, unless wave 2 voyagers come back in july like Hasbro said on Facebook, we missed em and what sucks about it the most is Hasbro and wal marts soft embargo on websites means we cant even order it from Wal mart target or amazon for retail.

    And then they will end up in big filthy piles at Ollies in a year and a half.

    Arab Wal-Mart just restocked what looks like 2 boxes worth of wave 2 legends class, so if you're around and didn't get a chance at Battletrap, there ya go. Enjoy!

    Both Walmarts in Madison have restocked legends wave 2, so plenty of TAILGATE and Battletraps to be had. They both also have wave 3 Inferno and Grimlock.

    Thanks that's cool to know, Road Trap and Battle Slash make good vehicon like inhabitants of our two Tripticons as army builders... as it is we have a set we keep as a deluxe and a set we keep as legends but a set to be vehicles ( roll and fly around on the various ramps and pads) or to double up on Legends bot squads would be cool.

    I understand that. I do know that some of stocking decisions are made by department or store managers. The old store manager for the wal-mart here micro managed all the departments ordering and what to carry to try to have a better sales ratios.
    I had a friend that knew the manager over the toy department in Semmes. All he had to do was ask to have something stocked, and it would get ordered if it was on their order list.
    Most of the time they have no clue what they are ordering. They just have a list of produces they can order.

    I worked in meat and we manually ordered the thing I learned was that warehouse will send whatever they want to send you regardless of what you order.

    FYI Ollies in Madison was well stocked in Blitzwing, Octone, and Overlord on Saturday. The cashier said there would be a sale this week making them cheeper.

    Wave 2 prime masters at Jacksonville Wal-Mart. Oxford Wal-Mart had wave 3 deluxes, one set left. Oxford target had either restocked wave one of leaders, or had sold the primal. It's hard to say for certain from the lone rodimus.

    Stopped by Athens Walmart last night and they were un-boxing a fresh shipment of toys. They wouldn't look for any Transformers for me in the unpacked boxes. Stopped back by this afternoon and everything is out but no Wave 3 sightings so they either did not get any or they are already gone. One Inferno still left along with a mix of wave 1 and 2 deluxes.
