    Arab Walmart has classic Beast Wars Megatron and Rattrap, along with Primal and Cheetor; and one SS Sweep.

    Has anyone ventured to University 72 Walmart or Target lately? Is it worth the trip?

    I've been to JV Target and University Target. Both had most of the new Buzzworthy stuff. Haven't checked Madison Target cause I found what I wanted at the University one.

    The new battlepacks are nice. If you missed out (like me) on some older SS figures they are in these. The SS46 Dropkick car (blue) is in one with SS18 Bumblebee. SS2 Stinger is with SS79 ( which isn't out yet) High Octane Bumblebee (black car with yellow highlights). SS27 Clunker Bumblebee is with SS28 Barricade.

    I think the barricade one and dropkick one is still at University Target if no one bought it yet.

    Walmart in Semmes had at least 6 Sweeps to go with some Wreckgars. First I've seen Sweeps in the wild.

    Hey everybody!

    I'm going to be in the Birmingham/Hoover area for work next week. Is there any places worth checking out for vintage toys?

    Unfortunately, there’s not much. You might try 2nd & Charles in Hoover or What’s on 2nd in Birmingham

    South Parkway WM has a ton of Slug/Slag and Grindors. Also a good bit of retro Optimus Primal. A few other retros there as well. Tigertron and Rattrap.

    South Parkway WM, scored big today. One Waspinator and two Shadow Panthers left. It was wonderful to see the TF and Power Rangers sections stocked with plenty. Check the top shelf for more Slags.

    S Pkwy WM has 7 Slags left. I also noticed Studio Series leaders are still $49.99 at WM. They also have 2 Skeletors on the clearance aisle for $7, and they've marked those packs of 6 Jada figures down to $3 now.

    1 Shadow Panther, 1 Waspinator, and like 4 SS 78 ROTF Sideswipes at the Walmart in Springville! Wasp and panther are stacked on the top shelf laying down, so good luck!

    The price changed on leaders elsewhere?

    I am wary of the sideswipes. They aren't officially revealed and the ones i did try to buy at South Parkway WM wouldn't scan.

    I wasn't sure if they had. Kingdom went up at retail, and BBTS is charging $54.99 for Slag, so I thought maybe retail had bumped up to $52.99 for Studio Series as well. I tried to scan a Wreckgar and Sweeps recently at WM to see if they had bumped up, but the UPC wouldn't come up with the app scan (Said something like "we don't sell this product") and I didn't carry it up to self-checkout. Are WM and Target both still selling Studio Series at the old price points? If so, I wonder why they're selling it lower than Kingdomm but BBTS isn't.

    So far I’ve gotten Wreck-Gar and Thrust at Target for $25 (no clue why it was low, but the tags have that price and I didn’t see it listed as a sale), Sweep at $30 from Walmart, Shadow Panther + Waspinator from Walmart for $19.87, and ROTF SS Sideswipe from Walmart for $19.97 (remembered the exact price because I got them today and thought the 10¢ was odd). I got Slug from Walmart too and I think he was $50 before tax
