    Where are you located, or rather, your store?

    Altoona Walmart had a full compliment of the Netflix figures. Picked up a Mirage but passed on the rest, tho Megs and Hound were both very tempting.

    If any of you are in the QC area, I have in my possession an extra Studio Series Scrapper, mint in box, that I would like to sell you for cost ($30). Forgot that I had him pre-ordered at two different sites and now here we are.

    I had Scrapper on preorder from both Hasbro Pulse and Target.com and they both reached the point of no return before I realized my mistake. I've been to a few stores locally since Scrapper and Sentinel were both sighted but have yet to see them in the wild.

    Yesterday Ankeny Walmart had 2 Netflix spoiler boxes. They also had a Hotlink and Meg but I took those. Seems like Walmart is doing a way better job keeping the Netflix Siege line stocked, unlike Earthrise.

    I noticed that too. Ankeny never gets the exclusives, now I've seen them there and at multiple other locations. Same with the Star Wars retro collection (tho I have yet to see a Boba, those are always picked clean) and the Kenner Ghostbusters. I think having actual spots for them versus endcaps helps a ton.

    Decorah, IA was restocked, 3 megs and 2 hotlinks, one Mirage and one sideswipe. (they also have quite a few of the 35th A. versions, Bluestreak(1) Megs, SoundB, didn't see a Prime, but wasn't really looking hard)
    ----~---I was really tempted to get another Hotlink, but someone else needs him.

    Looks like the others out of the cases were already snatched up, sorry someone else in the area wants them too.

    I am kicking myself for not ordering 3 Scrapface toys. I only ordered one and then bought one from a store.

    Scrapface and Hotlink are the best ones in the Netflix series for colors, and Mirage is a #2.

    This silver Megs' is better than the other SEIGE pieces, but I understand some don't care for it.

    See I have this bad habit my parents started with me, called eating. So if I could kick that then more toys.

    Oskaloosa Walmart had one of those displays as well. First time I've seens ER Deluxes in the area. Also plenty of Cyberverse Deluxe Hot Rod and Grimlock.

    No Scrapfaces there though as far as I could see.

    Same, this was the first time I'd seen any Earthrise besides the micromasters. I've also yet to see any Scrapfaces either.

    Decorah has more Netflix!
    no Magnus but
    2 Hotlink,
    3 Megatron, and several each of the other bots.
    I saw a Scrapface and bought it so I have 3 now, sorry other collectors.

    I think I saw another further back (bottom shelf), but I honestly didn't look that hard once I found the one near the front-selfish of me I know. There were several of the each of the other bots, including two Mirage up front. My guess is they received two more cases of these bots; so there should be another Scrapface in there. The bottom shelf was packed front to back 3 wide, so there are plenty and if your desperate you could risk a trip I guess.

    It all looked freshly stocked and refaced recently.

    Also the 35th Anv. are being discounted ever so slightly. They have 3 or 4 Bluestreak at 18.59(i think), plus 35th Megs, Soundblaster--didn't see Prime. The larger bots don't have clearance on them (shame).

    There are a few SEIGE left also, saw a Refractor or two among them.

    Sorry I should just take a photo next time. They have other new releases, but I have no interest in those for my collection goals, again a photo would help others. I will try to do that next time.

    W Kimberly Walmart in Davenport looked to be fully stocked on Netflix deluxe figures. They also had a Cliffjumper and a Hoist for Earthrise stuff. The only Voyager was Grapple, but they did have 2 of the covered box that I assume is Netflix Ulta Magnus.
