    Sorry to go ot ,but my main Walmart here stopped selling CHUG Leader class starting with Siege in 2019.

    No leaders for Siege/Earthrise/Kingdom,but now they carry Leaders like Legacy Galvatron and SS86 Coronation Starscream.

    Anyone else's WM do the same thing?

    Dude, I hadn't seen a Leader Class in my local Walmarts since TLK. Glad they're finally back.

    Heads up, looks like some Targets are clearancing out their existing stock of SS & SS86 deluxes. I picked up a Blurr for $11.49 $11.33 - didn't need him, but hard to beat half off. Only seeing SS86 Blurrs and Kups on shelves, but the UPCs for SS BB Arcee & Wheeljack also scanning that price (I think they're coming up $13.49 on website).

    Well Gall Blvd Walmart slapped me in the face. They finally got the Legacy Beast Wars Deluxe exclusives. Nice abundance of them. Other than that, nothing new.

    Walmart @ 17105 San Carlos Blvd & Summerlin Rd (near Fort Myers Beach) had:
    Legacy: 5 x Bulkhead, 3 x Dragstrip, 4 x Kickback, 2 x Skids, 1 x Iguanus, 1 x Skywarp
    Studio Series 86: 4 x Blurr (+ 5 more on overstock), 2 x Kup
    Studio Series: 1 x BB Soundwave on overstock shelf, 6 x BB core Ravage, 6 x BB core Shockwave
    Cyberverse warrior: 6 x asst, 1 x Snarl, 1 x Windblade
    Clearance, aisle I2:
    Kingdom: 2 x Rhinox ($21.00)

    Target @ 15880 San Carlos Blvd & Kelly Rd (Plaza at Island Pass, Iona near Fort Myers Beach) had:
    Legacy: 1 x Galvatron, 1 x Laser Optimus, 1 x Blaster, 1 x Skids, 1 x core Hot Rod, 3 x Iguanus, 2 x Skywarp
    Studio Series 86: 3 x Coronation Starscream, 6 x Sweep, 2 x Wreck-Gar; 1 x Blurr & 1 x Kup left @ $11.33 ea
    Studio Series: 3 x BB Ravage, 2 x BB Shockwave
    Few other Cyberverse stuff
    Buzzworthy: 3 x Kup, still 1 x Silverstreak clearanced @$11.49
    2 x Jada remote Optimus Prime
    No shelf tags for Buzzworthy Creatures Collide 4pk, Dinobot, Terrorsaur, or Red Cog yet.
    ---
    I suspect the SS & SS86 deluxes getting clearanced out means Target is probably planning a reset at the end of July, beginning of August with the new stuff.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by recently. For the last 3 or so months? No. But I only visit three Targets, and I don't even hit the ones in Lehigh, Cape Coral, Bonita Springs/Estero, or Naples.

    Before that, I was seeing the new (SS78) Sideswipe, Jolt, and Gnaw. I haven't seen any of the Bumblebee movie deluxes after B-127 (waves 15 and 16) or Perceptor except a lone BB Arcee, which I immediately bought (and had to help the service desk find in their system in order to buy it).

    Hopefully Target is planning a reset. They put the little SS cores on clearance recently, then the SS leaders on sale during Amazon Prime days, and now the SS deluxes are half off. Hopefully that means they do the SS voyagers next, and we can all grab discounted Sweeps (and I'd like to get a couple Wreck-Gars, one for customizing).

    I’m not a target employee but I think if they do a reset it’ll be sometime early august. Pure speculation tho.

    I'm back! Stopped at the Naples Tarpon Bay Target and Ross today. Ross had absolutely nothing of note. Target, though...

    First of all, they're remodeling the store, so the toys are now on the right side instead of the back. That was certainly a shock to come back to after a month out of town.

    Anyway, there were 2 Silverstreaks in the clearance aisle for $6.89. The mine TF aisle was completely bare except for the new Buzzworthy stuff:

    I picked up a Creatures Collide pack since Worlds Collide never showed up in this area. But if this is any indication, the new one will probably end up well-stocked and on clearance in three months.

    Swung by the St. Petersburg Target at Park/Tyrone this morning. Nothing really new but some photos in case someone is looking for something. I had no idea there was like 4 different concurrent Shockwaves out. All those Coronation Starscreams mocking me.

    Assuming my Walmart preorders don't cancel, they're supposed to arrive August 11th. So it may not be long until Velocitron stuff starts showing up on WalMart shelves here.

    Or maybe it will. Walmart in FL is a crapshoot at best. I still need to find an Override and a Burn-Out in stores, so I'll be out there looking too.

    Good luck hunting!

    If there is one thing we Floridians can count on, it is finding a Burn-Out in Wal-Mart.

    I’m more so concerned about unpopular cities like Wesley Chapel, Zephyrhills or even Dade City getting the line. We got the Netflix stuff relatively easy but this has me skeptical. Also I’m gonna be hunting for Cosmos and Clampdown since they’re sold out

    Sand Lake Target had a few Buzzworthy Dinobots and multipacks yesterday. Really want the set but I'm hoping to catch it with a sale at some point.
