    College Grove Walmart has 5 Blurrs and a Netflix Deep Cover. Also a RED Megs and Soundwave, and that one unmoving Cyberverse Megatron.

    College Grove Target has a WW2 Bee, a ROTF Bee, and 2 Grimlocks. Aside from that, it’s Cyberverse stuff that’ll likely hit Ross sooner or later. Speaking of Ross, the one nearby has nothing.

    Mission Valley Target has 2 Arcees, a Ractonite, and a Huffer. Says there’s 2 Kingdom Leaders and 58(!) Kingdom Deluxes in the back, so that’s worth checking out. Also, endcap’s gone.

    Sports Arena Target has 2 Blurrs, a Jazz, a Blackarachnia, and 2 Paleotrexes. Back has 25+ SS86 Deluxes and 53(!) Kingdom Deluxes. Ross nearby has nothing.

    Clairemont Walmart has a bunch of Netflix Wave 3 Deluxes, 2 Scavengers, 2 Blurrs, and some of the Kingdom Wave 2 Deluxes (saw all except Airazor, but they were in the top shelf so it was hard to tell.) Also two Dinobots (and an Inferno... no guesses where he went ;) )

    Othello Target actually has some stuff... granted, it’s just a Cheetor, Blackarachnia, and Warpath, but better than nothing.

    Balboa Target has a Cheetor, 2 Paleotrexes, a Warpath, and 4 Arcees (Wave 2 must’ve sold out quick... can’t wait for the Arcee and Wheeljack shelfwarmers), alongside Buzzworthy Deluxes. 4 Kingdom Deluxes in the back.

    Shocked that the Wave 2 Deluxes have been appearing as much as they have, it’s a welcome change of pace after Earthrise’s abysmal distribution of the later Deluxes (maybe Hasbro learned, though we’ll see how Waves 3 and 4 turn out). Also glad that Inferno showed up when he did, got worried that him being short packed would affect me getting him. Still haven’t found the Cores or Magnus (though Magnus isn’t a big deal to me considering I got him early) in stores.

    For anyone like me trying to collect the older titan class toys, TFSafari has PotP Predaking for $130 shipped. MISB but says it's straight 'from the factory in Vietnam, not meant for any particular market'. Not exactly sure what kind of package it's coming in.

    Caved and bought the only Cyberverse Soundwave from the Riverbank Target. Still had 5 or 6 Grimlock on the shelves.

    Pleasant Hill Target today had remnants of Kingdom deluxe w2, 3x Arcee and one Ractonite.

    Walnut Creek Target had number of w1 Kingdom deluxe and a couple SS86 Grimock. However, tablet kiosks reveal a huge number of Kingdom deluxe (35+, possibly w1 or w2) off-floor. I never see more than a couple cases shelved at this store, but I did stumble into a complete set of w2 pegged with the w1s last Sunday. If you’re in the area and want to take a shot asking a team member to bring out more, it may be worth it - however they have also had a policy of “no specific character searches” in the past.

    Y’know, if the Big Huff had just stuck with the “hugger” nickname, I think history would’ve looked at him a bit differently.

    On the other hand, if you’re talking about finding a brand new character named “hugger”, this may be a first sighting.;)

    Checked tanforan target , no kingdom as of dlx, Voy, nor leader.
    Checked colma , still three only of wave 1 and the invent said 20 on the floor. Checked inventory of serramonte and it said 95 in stock. Likely it’s a mess up or buyers purchased the kingdom with another dpci. So sad why people here had to lie and cheat.

    One Ractonite (spelling?) And a handful of Arcee at the Sisk Target. I left it there. Not really feeling the Fossilizer stuff.

    Found partial Netflix wave 3 Deluxes at the Antelope Rd Walmart near Roseville a few hours ago. Bought a Sparkless Bot and Deep Cover, left another Deep Cover.

    Nothing but wave 2 remnants at the North Highlands WM on Watt Ave.

    Sorry for the delayed post but 1 Kingdom Voyager Dinobot left on the top shelf at WM Antioch. Hopefully it’s still there!

    I had a good weekend. Certainly better than last weekend when I found an Ultra Cyberverse Shockwave masquerading as a Leader Grimlock at Dyer Street Walmart.

    Albany Target:
    at least 7x Movie Grimlock (grabbed 1)
    1x Ractonite

    Emeryville Target:
    2x Blackaracnia (grabbed 1)
    2x Airrazor (grabbed 1)
    4x Warpath
    4x Paleotrex
    1x Ractonite
    5x Movie Blurr
    4x Movie Grimlock

    I didn't take stock of the other lines but if you want Core-class Buzzworthy Bumblebee, both stores have got you covereed.
