    I missed the Pulse Sale on Red Alert so any sighting tips in the San Leandro East Bay area would be greatly appreciated. I'll be sure to do the same. ;)

    I looked up and posted in another thread when the last 4 Walgreens exclusives had first appeared - can’t find the post ATM, but IIRC they were all between Oct. 10 - & 27 (28?)

    Anyone find him? I checked my walgreens 3 times a week and nothing lol. At this point, might just fold and stick w/ the siege.

    Assuming the release pattern is like last year's Earthrise Bluestreak, it might not show up until as late as mid-January. Good luck.

    I remember a long time ago someone on reddit who said that he worked at Walgreens that Kingdom Red Alert was scheduled hit the shelves on November 1st. But with the shipping crisis now, who knows? So hopefully soon there will be sightings of Red Alert out in the wild.

    It probably was scheduled to start hitting about now. The container is probably stuck at port or out at sea.

    Given Hasbro Pulse already got there allotment, I was hoping they’d already have been in WG distribution chain, but seems likely it is affecting it…


    a while back (I think in this thread?) I looked up all the WG TF exclusives release dates and they were all in October….

    The ones near me are also starting to clear out old exclusives in general (beyond TF/Hasbro even), so there's definitely an effort to reset being made.

    Like it has been every year Walgreens exclusives start hitting Walgreens around end of October to early November with saturation closer to the end of the month. Logistics backlogs might be slowing the process down but like every other Walgreens exclusives they end up on the website for like, a year, and in Portland they shelf warm.

    No real reason to panic over Walgreens exclusives.
