    It's also a known issue of stores ordering a ton of the first wave of a new line.

    Sometimes it feels like the people at Wal-Mart and TRU do not understand what while yes, Siege/Earthrise/Kingdom/Legacy are separate lines...they really aren't. Not in any way that really matters to the customers. It's like the buyers for the stores see NEW LINE OF TRANSFORMERS and don't realize that it's more or less just rebranding and a refresh. But to the people buying the stuff, Wave 1 might as well be wave 37.

    That said, Wal-Mart is an exceedingly well run business and has been at it for a long time. I can't see them making that error more than a couple times; not semi-annually.

    I've given up on Walmart they're a poorly run business when it comes to their transformers section. It's always empty of mainline stuff and the only thing you can find is cyberverse, beast stuff, and non transforming stuff. It's not worth an hour round trip of gas money to go fishing in an empty pond. If they were a well run business we should be able to know if there is inventory for the transformers before we leave to go to the store. I think the deliberately higher gas prices are designed to hurt small businesses and encourage more consolidation giant online shopping retailers like amazon.

    They are a well run business from the perspective of what their singular goal is: make money.
    And they are very efficient with their inventory systems.

    Your displeasure at the state of your local toy department has no bearing on this discussion, or facts.

    I'd love to take a crack at it, but for a minimum asking price of $85 for Motormaster? Absolutely not :(

    I have to travel to 3 different states to find things at walmart and sometimes even then there is no luck. That's a fact.

    Walmart uses economy of scale to minimizing to have lower cost than other stores and driving their competition out of business then paying people low wages due to the lack of competition. You like facts, well how about being open during pandemics when their competition is not allowed to be open. That's not random luck. I guess like banks they were too big to fail but small private retail businesses not traded on the stock market that's a different story. We just saw a big transfer of wealth from small businesses which there are many transfered through closures to big store businesses. I wonder if any portfolios have Walmart stock in them?

    It reminds me of a great line in a movie called Moneyball when the GM talks about how there is rich teams and poor teams and then the A's. It's a rigged (unfair) game he said in the movie. Decades later they still don't have a new stadium and might need to sell the team if they don't build one or move to a city that will pay for some of it. Guess which the owner is likely to do? What did the Raiders do? I don't see the current owner building a stadium in Oakland completely on his own otherwise it would of happen already. I see the current owner trying to get someone else to pay for part of a new stadium like the Raiders did with Vegas and if not he could sell it to a new owner who will give the A's a new stadium some where but maybe not Oakland. You haven't seen MLB expansion in two decades, ..why because they like to have more leverage for all the teams to negotiate to get some public funds for new stadiums. There likely won't be MLB expansion until all the teams have newer stadiums except the iconic few old ones that remain. But by then they might repeat the process again before expansion. The Braves already have a new stadium again.

    I'm sorry, I think you had some irrelevant point with this weird unfocused rant but I'll be damned if I can figure it out. No interest in people bloviating.

    Aren't the hands held together by two Phillips head screws?

    Yah. A surprising amount of screws are used on Menasor.
