    I noticed that on their website that they had WFC Bee and Prime, and had Generations Drift for awhile. Beside WFC Bee it says Item not sold in stores. Is Walmart going to get these figures at all? I ask because BBTS just billed me for some of these figures, but they haven't gotten Drift back in stock yet. I'm beginning to wonder if maybe they're not getting another shipment. Any feedback would be cool.

    I can confirm they will be getting them, and some at least do have them.

    The Walmart in my area that my friend works at has (well had) them, things got scooped up pretty quick.

    Funny enough the Target I work at is more than well stocked on everything.

    I recently saw Generations Thrust and Bumblebee at the local Walmart, so they probably will stock the whole line. But their distribution can be poor, their TF shelves are outdated and their Star Wars ones are empty! Not replaced with new toys, but practically empty pegs and shelves!

    The information I was given privately has Walmart endcaps scheduled for start August 9, with Generations deluxes included as part of the endcaps. So we should be golden!

    This. I'd like to buy a Soundwave, and my patience is wearing thin.

    Well I hope by the time walmart gets their act together there will still be plenty people to buy the new toys. I'm sure there will be but it just seems strange for Walmart to be putting new stuff out after TRU and Target.

    They probably do gangbusters in water guns and outdoor toys and decided to keep the shelves full of that for a little longer.

    I was in my local wal-mart and they finally got the 1st wave of HTFD I picked up Seaspray and oddly they had the voyagers down by the RPMS :sly: 

    No generations at all but i can hook you up with a tuner mudflap no problem :lol

    Not only is WalMart last in my area to get any of the new stuff, but they seem to be pricing at $12 like TRU, which means Target ($9.99) will get all of the business from people who know transformers for the time being.

    I stopped checking. I completed my Wave 1 search with HA Jazz from Target and BO BB from TRU.

    Most stores will be resetting the toy dept next week. While some have already received some of the toys, my store is getting an entire trailer dedicated to the new toy modular that is going to be relayed. By Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, should be seeing all of the new stuff out and about.

    Well, last time I was there, Half of the Mudflap wall(which consisted of all the deluxe pegs) was gone, so I'm hoping there'll be some Generations there soon.
