    As of around 9pm tonight, Seekonk Walmart had 1 Breakdown (I bought the other one) and 2 each of Needlenose, Scraphook, and Hot Shot. Also 1 Tarn and 2-3 Leo Primes.
    Target nearby had a few SS86 Ironhides, and the dark grey/black Buzzworthy Bumblebee Movieverse Ratchet and Bonecrusher repaints.

    Picked up a Metalhawk at leominster walmart, one left on the shelf. Nothing new for legacy. Some retro starscreams, and some SS voyager BB Soundwave and 86 Junkheap.
    Leominster target has Legacy core nemesis prime x3, bombburst x2, voyager armada starscream x2(no inferno spotted though)
    And one each of SS leader 86 Sludge and The Fallen.

    Found Origins Jazz at target in Framingham. Last one so he’s gone but he’s in the area.

    Saw some rotb deluxe (Airrazor, Bumblebee) at framingham Walmart. Gonna pick them up at clearance but if you want them they’re here too. It looks to be just those two deluxes. all the way back. No other voyagers or deluxes yet. Is the earthspark stuff new?

    North Adams Walmart has the RotB Battlemasters (at least 2 of each of Skullcruncher, Rhinox, and Cheetor). Also the Beast Combiners Bumblebee & Snarlsaber and Arcee & Silverfang (I grabbed the lone Optimus Primal & Skullcruncher). They have the transforming Bumblebee and Primal masks, and the smaller quick-change Optimus Prime and Bumblebee figures. Tags are up for all the other stuff, so should be out any day now (hopefully).

    Also, a lone Legacy Voyager Inferno; first one I've seen in stores anywhere ever, but I already got one from BBTS so if anyone's still looking, it's there.

    Grabbed the lone Dead End and Pointblank from Seekonk Walmart. Left behind a lone Skullgrin and BW Inferno, and a bunch of Crankcases and Armada Starscreams. The RotB display is out.
    Seekonk Target is picked pretty clean, some Earthspark stuff. Not much else.

    N. Attleboro Gamestop had a crosscut, and I grabbed the lone WFC Prime. But that does mean the WFC studio series have hit New England, happy hunting
