    Man, that Walmart is always empty, never any Transformers. And I always check during lunchtime at my work.

    Surprised to hear about the Joes.

    As of 3:30pm, I picked up the Leader Brawl that I hid for myself at the Mipitas Walmart. It sat there for about 2 weesk! They also had 3 Night Beats, 1 Meantime, and 2 of that redeco Real Gears cellphone guy. Not much else. The store is looking less ghetto these days though. They've really cleaned that peace of trash store up. lol.

    looked at foster city ca target

    looked at foster city ca target.
    usually have time only in the evening so it is hard for me to find stuff.
    movie stuff are :
    3 deluxe g1 jazz
    1 scout signal flare

    yesterday i saw 2 ultimate bumblebee but they are gone today.
    for the last 2 weeks, this store has been restocking deluxe g1 jazz and voyager g1 starscream so those who go in the morning should find these easily.

    So I moved to LA almost two months ago, but this is the first time I've seen anything besides empty pegs. :) 

    There were about 8 G1 Jazzez at the West Hollywood Target at about 7:30PM tonight. I took one, and a fellow adult fan I chatted with a bit took two. Also the Decepticon Speed Dial repaint. Didn't see G1 Starscream or any other new Real Gears, nor any other transforming movie toys.

    The latest wave of Real Gears are en force at Torrance TRU. That is the repaints of Speed Dial and Booster, as well as Meantime and controller-guy.

    Dude, I'm sorry- hiding toys for yourself is a total jerk move. Just to let you know, when I find toys people have obviously hidden, I always put them out on a front endcap.

    You should just have the store hold an item for you.

    I used to hide Armada toys at Target so they would put new stock up.

    That's counter-productive. The computer would still list the old as in stock, so they wouldn't get more shipments in.

    No, no it actually worked - the next day I saw new product on the pegs. Guess Target likes to put new cases in the back until the older products sells out?

    This was at Cupertino Target btw.

    That's actually not what I mean. They might put out cases they have in back, but there's a chance they wouldn't get any NEW cases in.
