    I went on brickseek and the Wal-Mart's around North and South Carolina have decided the studio series voyager's are now a deleted item meaning they won't carry them anymore and I talked to the department manager at the Beltline Walmart in Florence South Carolina and he confirmed it. Isn't this line supposed to carry on until at least 2020 or 2021?

    Surely it's just that store, and not the entirety of Big Evil Walmart?

    Must be an area thing. Plenty of all sizes of the studio series at my local Wal-Mart and other area stores with no signs of them ending.

    My Walmart never sold anything Studio Series bigger then a deluxe and right now we're sitting on one lonely Dropkick, don't know why we won't restock I'd love to buy a Shatter & Scrapmetal. But hey at least with Siege they decided to at least get the voyagers as well as the deluxes.

    I've noticed alot of smaller Wal-Marts around me have done away with Studio Series completely in addition to a good chunk of Siege. Only thing they stock now is just Siege Deluxes (just a single column of 4 pegs).

    But the bigger Wal-Mart near me still carries the full SS line (when they decide to restock that is).

    Walmart pretty much hates all TFs in this area from my experience.

    Which is funny seeing they use to get in a lot of TF stuff in the past. Looks like all Walmart want to get in from Hasbro is fucking Beyblade.

    The Walmarts in my area have stopped selling both Studio Series and Cyberverse.

    I never understand Walmart’s the Studio series and the Seige figures are selling great, we have got to discontinue them just because.

    They randomly had Prowl and Sixgun yesterday and those were the first Siege figures I've seen there. Their Transformers section is usually empty.

    Last I was at my local Walmart, it had Energon Igniters, Cyberverse Warriors, G1 reissue Optimus Prime, Studio Series Leaders and Voyagers, and Siege Micromasters, Battlemasters, and Deluxe Wave 2. I never saw the Siege Voyagers, the Studio Series Deluxes had disappeared, and the Studio Series Voyagers are all ROTF Megatron and Starscream, but I did see the Wave 1 Deluxe Siege figures and Shockwave (the latter of which I bought) and the new Studio Series Leaders (Jetfire and Megatron).

    I'm seeing more SS toys then Seige toys. Although the distribution is the spottiest its ever been. :(  There are a few Titan Hero toys, some Botbot 5 packs and blindpacks, the smallest seige figs are there, whereas the larger ones MIGHT show up if your lucky, and a few lonely, overpriced Optimus Prime repros.

    Mine seems to have dumped the Cyberverse line, and BB movie line as well.

    None of my local ones carry voyagers or leaders.

    Yea, this describes my local Wal-Mart (and largest in the area). I have not had any problems finding new Studio Series figures here (found Shatter and Scrapmetal this morning) but it seems to be the complete opposite with Siege. I have yet to see any new wave 2 Voyagers or Deluxes there. They still do stock the Cyberverse Warrior Class and Ultimate line in addition to some of those Prime/Trailer sets in the "overflow but not on cleareance" section but that is about all the Cyberverse/BB line they have left.
