    Stopped by the one in Rancho Cucamonga, nothing there. Saw that there was a Wal-Mart in Fontana, only a Chromia, Hound, and Sideswipe were available. My search continues.

    Did you mean "three" Scrapfaces? 40 min drive for me and I won't be able to head out until tomorrow morning. Won't be able to leave work until tonight. Should I try tomorrow morning?

    Yep, I meant three -- fixed it. As for whether you should go, can't really say! Kind of a crap shoot, but it might be your best bet. If you strike out, there are a couple other Walmarts just a few miles further. Either way, best of luck!

    Success! I was able to buy my last Scrapface. There are two left. Thank you so much, MagicDishwasher, for the heads up. As of this post there are two Hotlinks, two Scrapfaces, and plenty of the other deluxes, no Megatron, and no Ultra Magnus in either the display or the toy aisle. I wish the rest of you good luck in your searching.

    I live in the IE myself. That's amazing because I thought I was the only one.

    Surprised to find a few Netflix deluxes at Mountain View Walmart yesterday. They still have a few of Hound, Sideswipe and Mirage.
    No Megatron, Hotlink or Magnus.

    Hunting exclusive TFs at Walmart in the Bay Area is awful, their own app says ‘unknown’ on stock status for half the stores and the rest, nothing’s in stock.. and if you’re on the peninsula, MV is the only store within half an hour’s drive and they almost never get TFs in anymore.

    Decided to try East Bay Walmarts today:
    Milpitas- nothing
    Fremont (Osgood)- Netflix deluxes except no Scrapface or Mirage. They also have Cyberverse deluxe wave 2: Hot Rod and Grimlock
    Fremont (Albrae)- scored Netflix Megatron and Hotlink! One more Megatron on the shelf. No deluxes.

    Dang, I was just at the Albrae Walmart yesterday. Did you happen to see ER Wheeljack anywhere? I see Hoist and Ironworks in your pic.

    Unfortunately I didn't see any Wheeljacks today, I think Osgood was the only WM that had any Earthrise deluxes. Target online has him in stock right now though..

    Not sure anyone should be going out to a lot of these areas to begin with right now. Downtown Sac is looking bad tonight.

    For the IE members on here where else can I find botbots besides Target. My 5 year old loves them but the pickings have been so slim and I didn’t see them at Walmart. Thanks for the help

    I'm more LA County but I don't think Walmart carries them anymore. Target has been the only place I have ever seen them. And on Amazon of course but it's random what pack you get. If you're looking for anything in particular, you could post it here or on the Botbots thread (BotBots Appreciation Thread). Someone might be able to find what you're looking for (or have extras, haha!).

    Okay, now there's a 6 pm curfew for all of LA county due to the looting in Santa Monica. Sorry for the constant updates but I just wanted to let anyone know who doesn't. Stay safe everyone.
