    I noticed something strange on Target.com. If you search for Origin Bumblebee, it says it's not in stock at your preferred store. But then if you go from there to search for it in other nearby stores, a few show it as out of stock, but most of them say "not sold at this store". Does that mean these stores won't ever have them? If so, the very small amount of local stores that show it as out of stock just emphasize the pathetic distribution of this figure.

    I have seen origins bumblebee at the Target on Southwest Plaza two times. The first time I grabbed one and left 8-10 of them. Next day they were all gone. Then last week, can’t remember if it was Monday or Tuesday, there were 4. They were gone while I got some groceries. Yes, I usually check again before leaving the store.

    Anyone want my black arachnia from my worlds collide set for $20? I don’t like the figure, and it’s unopened

    It wasn't that way until recently. I remember picking up the entire first wave of kingdom at a Target and then I saw it again at two other stores. I also look for Black series and I have not seen anything new put on the shelf for those two lines since mid June

    On a side note. The Hamden Walmart showed rodimus prime available for same day pickup. I ordered it only to have it canceled an hour later. So I guess don't trust their website

    Walmart at C470 and Bowles had a reset and ALL Transformers were removed. Not a single one on sight.

    Target at Bowles and Southwest Plaza has the same Bumblebee / Cyberverse crap.

    I really don't get it that stuff geared toward little kids just sits for months and months at a time. Why would they not restock with stuff that is flying off the shelves namely studio series 86 and Kingdom voyagers

    Yeah, I really don’t know what is going on. I have had the chance to talk to the Nintendo and Lego agents for this area and they seem to understand what best sellers are.

    I try not to order online but man, situations like this just push me to do it.

    Oh man, don’t get me started on the gi joe retro figures. The online prices are horrible. They are never in stock. Gladly we were able to get Snake Eyes, Destro and Cobra Commander at the Walmart on Quincy and Wadsworth.

    They then disappeared.

    I am trying my best to avoid those crazy online prices for stuff like that and the MOTU Origins series

    i managed to get most, the two loveland and west 10th greeley walmart got the hiss 3, but i missed out on stormshadow, baroness and scarlett. i did find the wave with cobra commander, duke and lady jay were instock at the timmnath store, after getting it from walmart.com. but damn the scalpers who have nothing better than go to walmarts and buy up all the stock. make army building tuff.

    If the inventory was where it should be the market for scalpers would evaporate overnight

    I really have to applaud Mattel for how good their distribution is with their Jurassic World line, like they are always able to release all their good stuff on time and is always usually well stocked. Went to the mills target and they have a bunch of new stuff from a couple of the sub lines, while on the other hand the TF section is still empty… Hasbro, take notes.

    Target on Kipling has two tags for Origins Bumblebee on an endcap. Like most of the display they were barren.
