    Walmart on Ralston had a full case of Wave 3 Deluxes. I took home 2x Refraktor, 1x Red Alert, and 1x Brunt, leaving 1x Brunt, 1x Red Alert, and 2x Hound. Target on Kipling and 56th had 2x Red Alert and 2x Hound. Am I imagining things or did I read months ago that the case breakdown would be 3/3/2 (with Brunt being shortpacked)? What happened there?

    At first I was mad thinking Hasbro were idiots for not putting 3 Refraktors in a case and to re-pack Hound. But I'm trying to be a better person so I started thinking of why they would do what they did. Did they end up selling more cases to Target and Wal-Mart saying multiple cases would have to be opened to satisfy demand? But for that to work the rest of the figures in the case would have to be sure sellers. They sold that with Hound? Or Target/Wal-Mart buyers asked for Hound? I have a hard time believing a buyer could name anyone outside of Optimus, Megatron, and Bumblebee so I don't understand how that works from either side.

    A buyer would want 0, 1, or 3 Refraktors - so they averaged 2? Can anyone shed any light on this?

    Glad I could help. I have been getting the Siege WFC figures here in Littleton and Denver. The Wave 3 has been difficult so far so it’s good to see them online.

    The Centerplace Target in Greeley has a Springer and Brunt. They also have the full first wave of Power Rangers Lighting Collection.

    I don't know if it's relevant here in Colorado, but it was posted that G1 Optimus is on clearance for 13 $. Did a sweep of Walmart on Hampden and Dayton and Arapahoe/Havana. Nothing there. going to keep sweeping for the G1 Optimus. Wasn't worth 50$ but its certainly worth 13.

    I have seen G1 Optimus everywhere this week. Sadly, it is still at $45-$50

    Every Walmart dictates the clearance unfortunately. Not seeing for $13 at the moment either. But thanks for the heads up! Good to continue eyeing it.

    Walmart on 136th has them for $35. They aren’t labeled yet on the shelf, but will ring up that way. I picked one up and will keep boxed (will try to price match or return/rebuy when it goes down more).

    Anyway there are a ton left in that store. ~10.

    I got the only Springer at the Walmart in Bowles and C-470 this past Saturday. Sadly, this place has less and less space for Transformers.

    So I received my 3 Refraktors from Walmart today. Great looking guy and the camera mode is great looking.

    Now, I didn’t notice I paid 29.99 for each. This is a deluxe and it’s supposed to be 19.99. Do you guys think that if I email Walmart I can get some money back? Any advice on this would be great.

    When you ordered it, was it "sold and shipped" by Walmart? Or a third party seller? If it's a 3rd party seller, then you're kinda out of luck. But if it was Walmart, then it couldn't hurt to ask. Not sure of their price matching policy though.
