    Caldwell Walmart had Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime. Dunno if he'll still be there, but they had him.

    Overland Meridian Walmart had wave 2 of the Micromasters. Picked up Laserbeak & Ravage, they still had plenty of each sets.

    Also had a full case of the Wave 2 Botbot singles.

    Boise And Eagle Targets both have SS Leader Megatron and Jetfire as does Boise Overland Walmart. That same Walmart also had Aimless and Pteraxodon, the first time in several weeks since I’ve seen either of them.

    Wave 3 deluxes at Fairview Walmart this morning... except I grabbed both Refraktors and the lone Brunt, but there's still a few Red Alerts left!

    Meridian Overland Walmart has a few Brunts, a few Red Alerts and one Refraktor... because I bought the other one to complete my trio.

    Sorry guys the rest of the Refraktors are all yours!

    The Boise Target had new stuff this evening too...one Red Alert, Brunt and Reflector...I bought Red Alert and Brunt and decided to keep my Reflector trio on preorder online since they only had one. They also had Springer, I left two more on the shelf. And they had a single Galaxy Leader Optimus which I left there.

    I was at the Boise Target and noticed they had a price placard on the bottom shelf for the Rainmaker set, but nothing there yet. Hopefully soon.

    Boise Target has finished their reset. No new stock for Siege or Studio Series and the tag for the rainmakers is gone.
    They do have the new Cyberverse Slipstream and the ‘larger’ Spark Armor (Megatron-Helicopter/Prime-Jet/Bumblebee-Ship) which look pretty cool but I had to walk away when they scanned for $25 a piece for a very simplistic and small deluxe and some static armor pieces. No sign of the cheaper Spark Armor figures.

    Oddly enough they didn’t start clearance the pile of Rampages, just filled up the shelf with them.

    I stopped by last night, the Rainmaker tag was there, it was on the bottom shelf further left than the rest of the TF section. Of course they definitely could have removed it between last night and when you were there though.

    I could have missed it easily, they’re in a new aisle now squished up into a tiny corner by all the DC junk.
    Just left after picking up Sky-Byte and Jetfire from the smaller spark armor assortment, they weren’t there this morning so apparently they aren’t done yet. They do have the Micromaster 10 pack though.

    Ten Mile Walmart has a couple G1 Soundwaves and a whole stack of the tapes. Tempted as I was I already own the old TRU Reissue Soundwave set so I’m in no hurry to drop $50 on this. The tapes are an easy pass at $20 for two, that’s just crazy talk.

    I just came from Ten Mile Wally and picked up the lone Soundwave that was on the shelf. Where abouts were the Cassettes? I didn’t see any tags for them anywhere, and it appears their (and other Walmarts) resets are done.

    They were hanging on the pegs right above Soundwave and scattered on the shelves too. They had at least twenty or so of them.

    UPDATE: Went out hunting this morning as Brickseek was reporting SS Voyagers in stock at Boise Walmart. Turns out they'd both been stolen already according to the toy stock team. IDK if that is true but that's pretty consistent with what I've been told in the past. Onto the sightings:

    Boise Walmart had a Car Dropkick that had been mangled and returned. It was the only one from that wave there so I'm thinking that it was probably an online purchase fraudulently returned.
    Fairview Walmart has all but eliminated their Transformers section, down to just a tiny sliver. They do have one Siege Springer though.
    Ten Mile Walmart is totally wiped, every single tape set was gone.

    Boise Target has a single set of the Rainmakers but otherwise all old stock.

    Man, this hunting stuff is so rough. Part of refining my collecting means that the old way of ordering whole waves is out and that tends to make buying figures online not really worth it anymore.

    I grabbed the Rainmaker set at the Boise Target this afternoon when I stopped on my lunch break. They still had the Micromaster 10 Pack
