    I was just at the Plainfield Walmart and they didn't have any G1 figures except the Tailgates and Swerves that have been sitting there forever, despite Brickseek saying they have 6 Soundwaves and 12 tape packs. I've never seen Warpath or Gears there either. Are the employees just not putting anything out?

    Same deal at Avon, nothing but Tailgates and Swerves.

    I'm going to guess not out yet. autumnsdescent said that some were waiting until the redesign and they were in the garden section at a Walmart.

    Warpath/Gears/Swerve/Tailgate are all the same code/inventory. I haven't seen Warpath/Gears there either but did find them at Brownsburg Walmart.

    I hope that's the case. I'm tired of paying scalper prices for figures that others find on clearance at their local Walmarts.

    This is why I really, really hate store exclusives.

    A Walmart employee told me the G1 Soundwaves were scheduled to be put out on August 1st

    Avon Super Target
    3x Galaxy Force Prime
    Several of the 2 new targetmasters and Sports Car patrol set.

    Avon Super Walmart
    Targetmasters down to $3 - still had a few. Mostly empty.

    Has anyone seen the rainmakers around Indianapolis? I’m here for Gen Con and if they are at a store I wanna grab them.

    I'm becoming a bit suspicious of the Avon Walmart. The cassette pack counts on Brickseek keep dropping a couple at a time (down to 2 now) but they're nowhere to be found in the store (yes, I also looked in the Lawn and Garden section).

    The Greenwood Walmart on 135 had a few G1 Soundwaves and cassettes last night.

    Look for any ebay sellers from that town, I think you'll find your answer...

    Looks like the Soundwaves are all gone.

    Forgot to mention that I found the new Cyberverse figures at 135 Target last night. They had the big Optimus with the Ark, all of the new Warrior price-point armor figures, and one exclusive Warrior Slipstream (who I grabbed). They didn't have the elite ($24.99) figures out yet.

    As someone who wasn't jazzed with the first set of Cyberverse stuff, I have to say these spark armor figures are a lot of fun.

    Oh, they also had a Siege Refraktor, but I grabbed it as it was the last one I needed to complete the set of 3.

    Anyway, I'll be heading back to LA in about a week, so I'll be done taking all the good stuff soon ;) .

    Any one looking for refraktor still? Camby Walmart had 3-4 of them today. Been there for a week now...

    Brickseek is now suddenly showing Soundwave as out of stock at all Indy Walmarts. What is going on?

    Weird glitch, maybe? When I checked earlier this morning after seeing your report, I did see quite a few stores showing OOS, but now it seems to have corrected itself. But it looks like a few stores did sell out rather quickly, if it's still reporting accurate results.

    Avon Super Walmart - almost no Transformers at all. Mega Construx Windraider was $9 in one of the clearance aisles.

    Danville Super Walmart
    Had 1 Soundwave and 1 Frenzy/Laserbeak … no Ravage but I picked them up. They had a couple Chromias, those cheapy figures, and that's about it. Wow, these are selling out fast. There was a kid that got there right as I was leaving that was looking fairly disappointed. Sorry but better than me looking disappointed ;)

    Plainfield is still showing out of stock. I've been going there twice a day (including this morning). I've even been checking the boxes of items they're restocking and they're nowhere to be found.

    There's something fishy going on here. Which may explain why I've never seen Warpath or Gears here, either.

    I went to layfayette Walmart, Southport, Greenwood south, and beech grove. No soundwave. Greenwood south is doing inventory, so maybe a restock tomorrow?

    I wonder if the inventory process is making some of these stores appear like they don't have stock; perhaps since it's not on the sales floor yet, the system may be marking it as OOS until the inventory counts are released?
