    Fort Myers/Lee County roundup for Friday 7/16/2021:

    Walmart @ 14821 Six Mile Cypress Pkwy & S Tamiami Tr had:
    WfC Kingdom: 2 x Arcee
    and that was absolutely everything Transformers.

    Walmart @ 17105 San Carlos Blvd & Summerlin Rd had:
    Kingdom: 3 x Blackarachnia, 2 x Cheetor, 2 x Paleotrex, 1 x Warpath
    Studio Series: 2 x tetrajet Starscream (smooshed boxes, but still sealed)
    4 x various Cyberverse warrior figs

    Target @ 15880 San Carlos Blvd had nothing exciting, except maybe a Kingdom Dinobot. Didn't get a good look as aisle was packed with two families. Ghostbusters figures, Tiny Turbo Changers, and all Cyberverse except deluxes (damnit) were on clearance for 30%-50% off.
    Definitely no Galvatron, Rhinox, or Kingdom wave 3 deluxes.

    Edit: Also hit a random Walgreens on the way home, no sign of Red Alert yet. I'll keep checking, but I'm not expecting him before the end of the month at the earliest.

    East Colonial Walmart had every core class bot minus Soundwave, 1 SS Grimlock, 1 KD Dinobot, 2 Huffer, and a full set of KD Wave 1 and Netflix Wave 3 deluxe bots

    Target at Waterford lakes had 1 Buzzworthy pack at 50% off, 1 Dlx Cyberverse Arcee, 1 KD Arcee, and 1 Paleotrex

    Aisles looked incredibly empty of transformers

    Edit: Yes, including Unicron!

    Since you saw the reset out there I checked my local target at Millenia and the toy aisles were even more in shambles than the last time I went. Nearly fully cleared out. BUT a lot of the clearance was jacked up to 70% off which must signal the reset here is imminent.

    By the way, I was able to snag a Galvatron at retail on Amazon by looking in the 'other sellers' and finding the one straight from Amazon. Mine showed up last week which was way ahead of schedule. Looks like there are still some on there for the $49.99 price point right now. I used the same trick to find BW Scorp for $19.99 and he too showed up way earlier than it first told me.

    Just a heads up for people looking for the worlds collide pack. I called my local Target on Bruce B Downs and they said the date was pushed to 8/4. Last week the associate said the 25th of this month. But hey if anyone finds the pack and can nab one for me (i can pay btw) please let me know.

    When Red Alert finally reaches South FL I wonder if Walgreens will do the same thing they did with blue streak where you could preorder him online and pick him up at the store. That's how I managed to grab my blue streak with no real issue.

    Slightly OT, but Kingdom Galvatron is available at Amazon for MSRP ($50) , but you you have to scroll down to the other sellers "box" down and to the right to see it. It says it will be delivered around August 15th if you dont mind waiting.

    For some reason, the default is 80 from one of the independent merchants. Usually the Amazon price /sold by is the default.
    Strange.

    Not that strange, Amazon defaults to whoever would have it in stock sooner, same thing is happening with deluxe Scorponok

    The default toy on Amazon is usually the cheapest listing that is actually in-stock now and ready to ship.
    Direct-from-Amaxon listing is a preorder.
    Amazon usually directs you to the buy now option furst.

    Tracks is on Amazon too now for $19.99 and poised to deliver August 19th - 21st. Likely will arrive before, but I am happy to just know I WILL get one.

    Damn im here in South Florida looking for Slag sightings and people still talking about Galvatron. I found Galvatron like a month ago (bad shoulders) and exchanged him for one with good shoulders almost two weeks ago. Ill admit, people scooped all those Galvys up quick and left behind an army of Ultra Magnuses.

    Central FL here, never saw Galvatron, but the army of Magni left behind might as well spell "Galvy was here"

    Magnus is poised to become the next Shockwave...

    That shouldnt be too hard. Just show your fat stacks or Lamborghini.


    Im sorry to complain, but this year and part of last, the distribution in my area just sucks so bad.
    I only am now seeing certain W1 Kingdom figures like Warpath , Cheetor, and whenever the first sighting is on the front page, it takes 3 months for my local stores to get figures, as opposed to 2-3 weeks.

    Titans Return was the first CHUG subline to have some figures missing , but at least I could easily get the figs from Amazon/HTS.
    Im glad after I get Galvy, Rodimus, Tracks, and Sweep. Im done.
    I've never even seen the TF crossover figures in any store.
    The joy of the hunt for TF's has severely diminished for me.

    Im glad I started in 2006 and am ending now.
    While Im sure there are going to be some awesome figures still being made, I'll leave it to the younger folks.
    Unless Needlenose is made heh
