    Was at Walmart on Rural and Southern. Whole toy section was pretty bombed out and depleted. They did have 2 Netflix Cheetors and 1 of whatever they are calling the rusty Barricade repaint.

    I can confirm, the Walmarts around here tend to restock things fairly well, but the Target takes about 2-3 months to restock anything empty.

    I don't know if my posts help other people find things, but I've had plenty of frustration finding figures in the past, and I didn't know about any forums of people sharing what they found, so the frustration just builds up internally. Knowing other people are having the same troubles you are, no matter the level of significance the troubles may be in the grand scheme of things, makes me feel better. And if I can do something that has the potential to help somebody out, even if its just a tiny bit, that's usually something I feel I should do.

    Seems like retail hasn't recovered since Christmas. I don't think toy companies can keep up with the demand. I blame everyone staying at home trying to shut their kids up with toys and video games so they can make their zoom calls.. lol

    The beginning of the pandemic I unloaded tons of impulse buys just collecting dust in my closet on offerup. Stuff mostly from ross. But all the buyers were saying they were for their kids being bored at home so I'm glad they didn't end up back in someone's closet or on ebay

    Went and picked up one of the Cheetors from there. I've also never seen that Walmart stocked with anything but deluxes.

    Walmart on 19th Ave and Bell has a good selection of Studio Series and some Netflix figures.

    i was there a few days ago (may 8th) and saw all the same bots. but when I was there there was about 50 of the SS 86 hot rod. :lol 

    All I bought was the 1 and only WFC Black Ironhide repaint, an SS Starscream (they had a dozen or so at the time), and a Gold Label Blue Mandarin Spawn figure.

    Admittedly. I don't much post sightings anymore due to Dealer Lurkers in this thread picking the shelves clean constantly. It's gotten a little annoying I admit. ;)

    If it's a hot item and I see multiple of them I may move one or two to the endcap or shift them. Yeah, there's a chance that someone may not find it but it also increases the chance that scalpers cannot scoop up everything.

    Also, it's not always scalpers. I've been at a Target before where they had a 3-4 of a figure. I grabbed mine then went shopping. Poke my head in out of 15 minutes later and 2 are gone. Poke my head in another 15 minute later and the last one is gone. Not common, since I usually do not hang around long enough to re-check the shelves but this tells me not to just assume that it's scalpers.

    EDIT: Dang I want another Scourge and Hotlink but that Walmart is too far away from Tempe. . .

    Was at Target on Baseline and McClintock and they seemed to have restocked some things. They had multiples of Cyclonus and Primal, a BW Megatron, SS BB Starscreams, and a SS Hot Rod. Also 2 Zartans, 1 Scarlet, and 1 Roadblock for Joes.

    I just saw the sign in-store today. Is it sad that I understand the crazy demand for Pokemon cards but not sports cards?

    Has anyone spotted ER Thrust at all this month? I'm starting to lose hope here.

    bruh. ER thrust has come and gone long time now. I mean we're in the middle of Kingdom.

    at this point, eBay, on rare occasions the Junkion Exchange here on TFW and Facebook Marketplace are all that's left of places to find him.

    can someone verify the Rhinox sighting? The original pic was mysteriously taken down.

    Found me a Rhinox at Target 19th ave & Montebello.

    Also got hella lucky for once in my life and found a few GI Joe Classified figs. (Cobra Commander, Flint, Lady Jay)(no Major Bludd of course)

    Can report from the Target on W Southern Ave and S Longmore that they Rhinox. I picked up 1 but there is still 1 left. They also have some Kingdom Wave 1 leaders if anyone wants to pick those up.
