    Three Blasters left at the Greenfield and McKellips Walmart (but the boxes aren't in the best condition...)
    also three Alpha/Zordon Power Rangers sets.
    Brickseek says they have a few Studio Series Leaders (so maybe Overload) but nothing was on the shelf.
    (and still no Retro Joes)

    The post above seems to be the first reporting of Blaster on any of the sightings threads, you should submit it for news credit.

    For people trying to find Scorponok still, the Target @ 19th ave & Montebello Rd (near Bethany Home Rd by Spectrum Mall). seems to be the main one carrying him. I keep seeing him stocked there. I just nabbed one for Mike Syfrett 2 days ago.

    They are also carrying the Space Shuttle Micromaster Team for those wanting that to complete their Omega Supreme set-up.

    Scorponok seems to only come in 2 at a time so...Get him while you can. He seems stocked pretty frequently.

    That is THE ONLY Target I've personally seen him at and I usually stick to the North & West Target Store locations since I live off Cactus & the 1-17 here in Phx.

    Also, is it me or does GRAPPLE enjoy shelf warming? lol he's the only Voyager I ever see from Earthrise literally anywhere.

    That's interesting, I've been checking Scorponok on the Target website every day for the past few weeks, and it's been occasionally showing up in stock in Tucson, but that's the closest I've seen it, usually it says the closest store with stock is at least a few hundred miles away, usually farther.
    So I guess take what the website says about stock with a grain of salt.
    But for what it's worth, the few Targets in the east valley don't even have price tags on the shelf for him, so I'm not holding my breath for him to be widely available in the city.

    I think Hoist was the boxmate with Snapdragon? So everyone got Snappy but left Hoist.

    I'm pretty sure he meant Grapple. There are like 9 at my closest Walmart.... and that's about all there is.

    Ebay:
    Target E. Warner/Val Vista - 3 Skywarp/Thundercracker, 2 clones(?)
    Target Power/202 - 6 clones, 2 snapdragon
    Target Gilbert/202 - Sky Linx

    I think the Gilbert/202 Walmart was the one with several blasters. That or the Power/202 or other one in the general area. One of them also had a Snapdragon. Sorry I can't remember which.

    Of course the first Ross I hit had a brunt so I ended up having to hit all the other Ross in the area trying to find reflectors. Saw no other transformers at Ross.

    So do we know if Walmart will carry Sky Lynx or will it just be Target?

    THANK YOU! Been looking for a Sky Lynx for a while, so I was very surprised they were still there. Still one left.

    Target is streetdating Overload for October 1st. Had an employee pull him while I was asking about a price match for the pre-order.

    Odd, bought one at WM the other day and didn't hit a street date. Although to be fair WM is much less strict about streeting than Target. I've only ever encountered a street date at the register at WM like 2-3 times ever.

    You gotta get out and check the actual stores then because a fellow collector in Phoenix (who travels around to various Target's pretty liberally) has found Scorp multiple times. Not sure I even trust their website more than I do, A) my own eyes on the product, B) Popfindr

    Target on McClintock and Baseline. Grabbed an MP Screamer like 20 minutes before closing. There's still one left on the shelf.

    Target (87/Ortifillo) had 2 MPM Starscream, 3 SW/TC and clones.
    Target 202/Gilbert had 2 MPM Starscream, 2 SS Overload. Don't remember what else
    Bealls Outlet (Warner/Dobson) had minibots for $5 (1 each of Bumblebee, Gears, Swerve) and one master Alpha Trion for $3.

    Finally completed my refracktor at Ross (Palmer). That's the third time I hit that Ross this week so it seems Ross was getting new shipments in several times this week.
