    I have a personal bias against Walmart, but my other reason for not stopping there is logistics. The one Walmart is a dead zone for Transformers. The other two local Walmarts are near difficult busy intersections, and often find I can't be bothered to deal with the added stress to check them.

    The East Colonial Target in Orlando was interesting. They had x1 Concept Art Megatron and x2 Origin Wheeljack. The yellow clearance tags have also come out. Looks like the Primal mask and some of the Earthspark stuff is on clearance alongside Studio Series Cores. Probably to make way for TF One toys. The only other clearance that caught my eyes was G.I.Joe Mutt and Junkyard was around $33 and the Pokemon Selects Toxtricity was $10.

    I swear the first wave of Legacy in 2022 was a black hole that most Walmarts can't get out of.

    My local one (Bearss/Nebraska) was pretty solid in updating TF from 2014-2022.

    The last new figure I saw/bought was 86 Ratchet back in Nov 2023.

    I went to a few spots around Orlando today. Snapped pics. Not much of note anywhere, sadly.

    A couple more Orlando area spots. Good to see the Gears wave at a Walmart. Chromia keeps tempting me to pick her up. Also two Voyager Shockwaves at Oviedo Target, a candidate for figure of the year imo.

    Aloma Walmart

    Origin Wheeljack x 1

    and not much else. I'm putting down a Ross stop in my calendar for tomorrow, just for something different.

    Hey everyone, I hope you are doing well and staying cool in this terrible heat (Everytime I step outside it feels like I am being cooked alive)

    Anyways here is what I got:

    Walmart on Causeway Blvd in Brandon

    So, I went to Ross, like I said I would. This location is at Glades & Lyons, and this is what they had:

    20240615_145507.jpg

    The only TF item I could find in the whole store (I did also find some tools that I needed for an upcoming project for only $10, but not a TF project).

    Since it was on my way back home, I hit up a different Target than usual (On 441, north of Palmetto Park Road):
    20240615_162926.jpg

    Studio Series -
    BBM Shockwave x 2, GE Starscream x 1, GE Sideswipe x 2

    Legacy United -
    Bouldercrash x 2, Energon Megatron x 2, Cheetor x 2, RB Chase x 1, Windblade x 1, Magneous x 1, Origin Wheeljack x 3, Silverbolt x 1


    And for any fathers reading, here's to this Sunday being a good one!

    5 Below @ 13300 S Cleveland Avenue & Cypress Lake (Cypress Trace Plaza, S Fort Myers) had just the little Authentics Transformers and some chibi Bumblebee & Optimus diving their vehicle modes for little kids. Also had some Star Wars line of boxed figures I hadn't seen before.

    Two spots over at Ross @ 13300 S Cleveland Avenue & Cypress Lake (Cypress Trace Plaza, S Fort Myers) had no Transformers that I could find, not even the little Rescue Bots Classic Heroes. They did have some Super Mario movie figures, a couple of the Star Wars Troop Transports, and a smattering of various Jurassic Park dinos. It was all in the toy shelves in back, nothing up front by registers.
