    Sorry for double post. Need to add a couple things:

    Cold Spring Meijer: Nothing notable. They don't even have pegs for the Siege micro- or battlemasters
    Alexandria WM: They had a couple Siege Mirage, an Impactor, Brunt, Reflector and a Barry or two as of a couple hours ago

    So, hunting for a cheap Siege Jetfore right? Went to Westport Walmart. Found an employee, he checked their stock, they have two on hand - and they're nowhere to be found. Brickseek backs this up, as it hasn't changed in weeks. Which means someone is hiding it/them. Someone isn't playing fair. Whoever you are... do the right thing. They're 45 bucks for God sakes. Put them back where they belong. Because if I dont find them, someone else will.

    You've been warned.

    Georgetown Walmart is the same way. Brickseek said they had 2 but I went there and couldn't find them. Same thing happened with the reissue Starscreams when they went on clearance. $7 and inventory said they had 5 ( a whole case ). Never did find them. I'm pretty sure Jetfire is also 2 to a case.

    Tin foil hat time; I think an employee is "losing" a case of the hot Transformers out the back door. I only got Devastator because I had them pull it from the back. They had reset the shelf and never stocked them. The manager got the case from the back. My guess, it would have disappeared overnight had I not pushed.

    I've learned not to trust brickseek completely. I've had the same happen as you, where it was showing something in stock that wasn't there and I've also happened upon stuff that according to brickseek should not have been there.

    Not saying this is the case in regard to missing Jetfires, however, a store will show an item as in stock but that doesn't mean it's on a shelf nor in the back.

    Folks can and often do hide things in areas that are less frequented by eye traffic to collect at a later time. I used to find all kinds of stuff tucked away in display pieces of furniture and in the backs of shelves that get less use. GI Joes in particular were a popular squirrel away item around here. I collected many troop builders from locations people had used to hide things.

    Now, again, Jetfire's isn't a small box. And I don't know that this is a case of things being hidden. But if I were looking, I would check cabinets and behind TVs on higher shelves.

    Would anyone be interested in purchasing a Holo Mirage off me? I ordered the 3 pack so I could have Aragon but I don’t want the Holo Mirage. Con Impactor is already bought

    Dan at the Zone expects to have Siege wave 4 deluxe figures this week. I’ll post when he confirms. He usually gets his TFs in on Wednesday afternoon sometime.

    I ordered a set of the Battle Squad micromasters, where’d you get Astrotrain from?

    You'd be better off asking @taterx seeing as I've never been to the zone ( I live in Lexington area ).

    Dan says soon. I’ll post here when he gets the notice. He usually knows 4 or 5 days out.

    For some reason, the planogram has Jetfire placed in the Jurassic Park section. That’s where he’s at in Bardstown. Makes no sense, the employees know it doesn’t make sense, but check there anyway.

    Probably an oversight by whoever did the sheets. Odd though that a department supervisor who knew better wouldn't take the initiative to correct the error.
