    Two Jetfires at Fairview Walmart. They’re up on top of the shelf and there isn’t a price tag for them yet.
    They wouldn’t scan at the register and they called a manager over to get a price request. The manager (a pretty old guy) just said that means it isn’t for sale, grabbed it and shuffled away. I wasn’t going to argue at 8 in the morning, if you don’t want my money I’ll take it elsewhere.

    Meridian Walmart had a pair of Jetfires this morning as well. I left them both, but not sure they’re still there...though they were on the shelf, but had blank tags on them, so not sure you COULD even purchase one. Seriously....WHY put them out if you don’t want anyone to purchase them?!? Morons....


    @Dirge121 - yeah, by the time I was at Ten Mile, every single G1 cassette was gone. I really hope some assclown scalper didn’t purchase them all, but really....we all know that’s probably likely.

    Boise target has:
    4 Refraktors
    2 SS Helicopter Drift
    1 SS Hightower
    3 Cyberverse Cheetor
    A bunch of the Cyberverse deluxe wave with Gnaw (except I grabbed the only Gnaw I saw)

    Id also say don’t waste your time looking for Studio Series Voyagers there, they’ve got about 10 Rampage and they ain’t moving.

    Boise Target has 1 Rainmaker set and a few Siege Barricades. No sign of Mirage or Impactor. They also had a few Caliburst if anyone if still looking for him.

    Ten Mile, Fairview and Overland (Meridian) Walmarts are all out of Siege deluxes unless you like Chromia.

    I forgot to post it but last week Boise Target had one each Impactor, Mirage and Barricade. I bought them, but still wanted to post the sighting since they're getting out there now.

    Hopefully Walmarts around here will put up the 35th Anniversary endcap display soon so I can get Bluestreak.

    I hit up Fairview Walmart and Boise Target this morning.
    No endcap or Siege at Walmart.
    Target still had a few Rainmaker sets and one or two Thundercrackers. Nothing else new.

    Impactor still eludes me.

    Reddit posters are saying that Ratchet is in Walgreens in DC, WI, FL, and other places. Any here in ID?

    The Meridian Overland Walmart had a single Impactor last night. Sorry, I wish I'd seen your post here sooner or I'd have hid it and sent you a Facebook message.

    I didn't have a chance to swing by any Walgreens yesterday but based on past distribution, if something hits toward the East side of country first it will be a few weeks until we see it on our end.

    The retail Gods were kind to me today, I picked up Bluestreak and SoundBlaster at the Overland/ Cole Walmart on my way to work this morning and Ratchet at the Milwaukee/ Fairview Walgreens on my lunch break. Walmart had plenty more of everything on that display but I got the last Ratchet at that particular Walgreens.

    Funnily enough that stand is already gone. I’m here right now and there’s nothing beyond the usual pegwarmers left in the aisle.

    The 35th anniversary display is back out at the Fairview/Eagle Walmart. It's in the Christmas section at the front of the store. Check your 35th Prime if you grab one, I took a few minutes comparing paint apps as some looked pretty sloppy. I'll probably pick up a Soundblaster next week.
