    Went shopping today at the Meijer on 12 and Mound. Stopping by the toy section, I was disappointed to see 2 Blowpipes that both had been opened and had their blast effect removed. The deluxe pegs were filled with wave 1's, which was surprising, as the last time I was there, it only had a Sideswipe and a Flywheels.

    I seen a couple of the wave 2 at Meijer about a month ago, but half were gone - waiting for them to restock, but it's suddenly all the same here - pegs and pegs of Wave 1.

    They were probably sitting on a bunch of cases of wave 1 in the warehouses and once wave 2 sold out the wave one cases went out again. It happens all the time at meijer with toys.

    Thanks for that. Picked up Donnie/Krang & Leo/Shredder. That was the last Shredder set. They also have S2 BotBots 4 packs. Scored Steve from Accounting :D

    Well... Crud Bunnies!

    I went to 5 different Walmart's today in about an hour. Record time for me... Without very much speeding. Came up zilch. No Siege Springer found. There may have been one at the 12 and Gratiot one but only was a Prime and as Starscream.

    1. 14 and Vandyke
    2. 12 and Vandyke
    3. 12 and Gratiot
    4. Hall and Gratiot
    5. Hall and Romeo Plank

    Nada Tostada... I plan on hitting one more up. But I can't do it everyday. Good luck to you all, and happy hunting.

    I found a lone Siege Springer at the Mich Ave Walmart in Canton this morning. They had nothing else of interest.

    I wonder if they are only putting 1 Springer in the case! If so then . I saw 1 Meg & 1 Screamer on the shelf with Springer. ‍♂️

    From what I see on Entertainment Earth, a case has 2 figures and contains 1 each of Springer and Starscream. Though I don’t know because when I found mine today the only other voyager was Optimus.

    No kidding? I kinda stopped checking there because they had been so bad about stocking through PotP and early Siege.

    I was shocked. I didn’t think I’d find anything new.

    I thought Thundercracker was supposed to be the other voyager in the case.

    Thundercracker has had a release date of August 1st and Springer has been July 1st. So there will probably be a revision case with TC, but for now it’s Starscream as far as I know.

    I actually went to a 6th Walmart in 1 day. The 15 and Crooks. Also nothing, but in 2 instances there was a Starscream on the shelf. So maybe just maybe there was a Springer there. But with several Megatrons at several locations I don't see them getting more until some of the voyages dissipate. I don't mind doing the 3 Wally world run because it doesn't eat up all my hour lunch. But the 5 trip actually had me back late to work by 10/15 minutes. Not really a big deal with my work, but it's a big deal to me.

    I mean I will get him eventually because I have him Preordered. But the Hype has got me and I want him NAOW!

    *********************************** Update

    OK... So as of now I went to 2 more Walmart's Vandyke 14/12 and 2 Target's 12/14 and no dice. Nothing pretty much at all new.

    12/14 Target stores had some good Studio series stuff but nothing in the way of Siege. Same stuff different day.

    Eastwood Walmart has one Starscream so they probably had a springer at some point.

    I keep telling myself be patient. He (Springer) will be readily available... eventually.

    A couple more weeks probably. :( 

    I still checked a Target and Walmart today. Both mentioned in the above posts so we are just walking past each other.

    You’ll know its me when I grab that Springer out of your hands! :D
