    Nothing at Burbank Empire Center Walmart. I'm convinced they're gonna totally stop carrying Transformers. At the nearby GameStop: one Studio Series '86 Scrapheap. At the nearby Target: a United voyager Thundertron and SS'86 Snarl, as well as United core Bouldercrash. Otherwise, plenty of Gamer Starscreams. No Legacy deluxes at all. They did have the newish NECA/TMNT Leonardo as Creature from the Black Lagoon. Also had McFarlane Firestorm, which was tempting.
