    Gamestop gets solid cases of each figure since theyre an "e-tailer" and the solid cases got out earlier than the assortment. Amazon got Scorponok and Wingfinger about a week before GS got all 3.

    You later clarify this is just about your luck, but this initial post is a not accurate for a lot of people. Is distribution dodgy? Sure. But distribution in the US is WAAAAAYYY better than it used to be. I legit found Slug on the opposite side of the country the day after he was spotted.

    UPC/Grindor's DPCI doesnt matter. Only the leaders assortment DPCI, which you cannot track online right now.

    which they really need to do something different with their system. Doubledealer dpci was the same for wave one and one of my targets realized dealer had a street date and they pulled all the leader class figures
    (Optimus and astrotrain too) off the shelf and wouldn’t stock them till his street date came.

    Thankfully that hasnt been an issue for a good while now. It seemed to be growing pains with the Target website taking preorders for individual figures that started the issue.

    I had quite the issue with Galvatron trying to convince them to just try and ring him up and they’ll see the dpci is the date but the upc is totally okay. That was a fun day

    I’m thinking I need to pick up Scorponok to hang out with my BW MPs.

    They made it to Idaho.

    One Target had what will be the norm for the next quarter: pegs of Wheeljack and nothing else

    The other showed they should have a case but someone bought it before it made it out to the floor. Next shipment due end of August.

    Meanwhile Walmarts here are loading up on 4-5 cases each of Wave 1. I don't anticipate seeing anything from Wave 3 other than Wheeljack for a good long while.

    Ordered Tracks from the Best Buy website and picked it up at my nearest location a few days later. Unfortunately they're sold out of Scorponoks.

    Saw the two I want are on BBTS, so jumped on it. I wants it and retail will most likely be sitting on the previous wave awhile before I see these.

    Thank for the info, I checked out Best Buy, but Best Buy is sold out of Tracks now too. Only Wingfinger is available.

    I have yet to find a Tracks and Scorponok available that isn't an inflated price, they are selling like hotcakes everywhere pretty quick.

    Was lucky, friend alerted me. Scorp was long gone when I ordered Tracks.

    Huh.... I found Rhinox at a Wal-Mart back in like mid-June. I figured the rest were out and I just hadn't run into any others yet.

    Deluxes were the last to retail. Galvatron and Rhinox have been out for awhile.

    All in Oregon: Found Wingfinger at Clackamas Promenade Gamestop, they said they had another case but I already have a set on the way from bbts, they also had Transmutate, Core Optimus Prime.
    Happy Valley Walmart has lots of Wave 2 RED figures, all wave 1 and 2 Kingdom Deluxes.
    Clackamas Target has nothing but the big Cyberverse figures.
    Johnson Creek Fred Meyers has all Kingdom Wave 2 Deluxes $24.99 but buy 2 get 1 half off ($37.49 for 2.) They have Tiny Turbo Changers series 4 baggies.
    Both Think geek and Gamestop inside Clackamas Mall have multiple Transmutate.
    Rogue Toys on King and 82nd has Dracodon and K Ultra Magnus.
