    Folsom Walmart has Siege Voyager Megatron, all of the Deluxes except for Sideswipe, all of the Micromasters, but none of the Battlemasters, and no Leaders.

    Are there any cool toy or comic stores in LA that sell Transformers? I haven't seen any yet.

    Cape & Cowl Collectibles and of course Frank and Son. On a side note, Target in Santa Maria had all the Siege Deluxes, 3 Megatrons and 2 Optimus. Still no Studio Series Leader Jetfire/DOTM Megatron yet.

    Well the Walmart on Laguna Blvd right off 99 in Elk Grove is COMPLETELY cleaned out of Transformers. The only thing they had was ONE Siege Megatron which I interpreted as destiny and bougt lol..

    WARNING: OPENED SIEGE ULTRA MAGNUS MISSING ALL HIS WEAPONS AT MID TOWN SACRAMENTO TARGET

    So yeah, got all excited that I found one but realized all but one weapon was missing and the one left was loose in the box. The sticker seal on top was broken. I let an employee know but wasn't confident she was going to do anything about it so be careful if see just one left at that store... That aside, they had about 4 Megatrons and 2 Skytreads. Also 2 SS-21 Starscreams.

    When you see one that has a missing weapon in it or the figure got replaced after a return or the tape is broken (someone opened the box) quite simply crush the hell out of the box so they need to charge back it out. Make it obvious enough that you force Target's hand to take it off the sales floor.

    Sure. At the very least that will make for an interesting story to tell store security when they question why I was damaging merchandise...

    As someone who worked at Target for 15 years you think way too highly of Target Security. They are only allowed to interact with you at the door if you are carrying out product to the outside. Crunch the item in the aisle and give it to a nearby team member for charge back. I personally have done that in other Targets and even Walmarts for that matter when packages like these come up. I think they should be more worried about a disappointed parent than me crunching a toy because their customer return service is severely lacking in seeing the obvious due to sheer laziness. I rarely see the problem of a switcheroo at Walmart as much as I have seen it done at Target. Target Guest service is so infatuated with"impressing the guest" my God the things you could get away with.

    Target in Irvine on Culver had 4 (!) Siege Megatrons.

    I'm surprised to come across a lot of shelfwarming Siege Megatrons lately. Guess he's not that popular. This also means all the Optimuses are being bought up.

    Citrus Heights Target at Birdcage has Siege Voyagers, Micromasters, and Battlemasters, but no Leaders or Deluxes. They also still have the Bumblebee Casstte exclusive pack and Soundwave.

    That was almost me so least I could do is help other avoid the same fate. I feel sorry for the sob that doesn't realize what happens until AFTER they get home. Hopefully that employee took it off the shelf.

    Just found this Bumblebee 3-pack at Marshall's in Burbank for 19.99. Not 100% sure what it is or what line it was in, but it has the original 2007 clunker Bumblebee--one of my first Transformers ever. Bought it for the nostalgia. I also don't think I own the other 2 molds (I don't even remember the stealth one), so that's nice. Anyway, they had one more on the shelf if anyone is interested.

    It's an amazon exclusive hilariously enough. Not sure why it's showing up at Marshall's (though it's probably because Amazon is selling off stock).
