    Spotted a poorly-painted Red Alert and Leader-class Optimus Prime today at CR Walmart

    anyone looking to pick up the Optimus, beware the box is flat-out mangled

    Got the only Red Alert and Brunt from Elk River Walmart this morning. I HATE that Reflector (Refraktor) is gonna be the hard to find one since everyone will want three of him for camera mode. >_O

    And in non-Transformers news, my Amazon order of the Marvel Legends 3 pack with Magneto, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch arrived today. Wasn't expecting it on a Sunday.

    Well, ended up finding cyberverse warrior soundwave (rad) and hot rod (ehhh) up here in Thunder Bay at a Walmart near the hotel. They also had a bunch of g1 reissue Starscreams on clearance for $18, so I grabbed one. Weird, weird place

    Because there were a ton of g1 starscream reissues on clearance. That and all the moose knights trying to sell you maple syrup while battling Canadian geese (only here they just call them geese).

    Whoa totally missed the G1 Starscream note in your previous post. I missed him and have been keeping hoping he'd make a comeback or 2nd run like G1 OP so I could grab him. Unfortunately I don't go to Walmart much so don't get a chance to look for him. If anyone sees him around the Cities area, please post and then I can maybe grab him (clearance would be even better). Probably not going back to Thunder Bay just for him though!

    Man, they have an entire aisle for TF's at the TRU here. I grabbed all 4 botbots bakery bytes sets so I've got the recolors (this also means I have a few extras of the rolling pin and the mixer as well as some of the repaints if people are interested). The color change gimmick is neat but not really anything to write home about. Found g1 tailgate, Bee movie nitro Blitzwing and chopper Dropkick at a different WalMart. This has been a pretty bountiful trip, honestly.

    You’d better hurry back to the Elk River WM if you’re interested in the Springer I left on the shelf! :)  They also have a Galaxy Optimus if anyone is looking.

    Are you still up there? Thought you were talking about being there in the past. If you are and you go back to the Walmart with the G1 Starscreams would you bring back an extra?

    Eagan has four Megatrons and two cases of wave 2 Deluxes so I don't see Springer stopping by anytime soon.

    They weren’t there when I was, my interest in Siege is pretty limited at any rate.

    Found and bought one lone Siege Springer at the Coon Rapids Walmart this morning.

    So all I need is at least one Reflector (Refraktor) and I'm caught up with the line for now.
    Thundercracker is coming out for the line in the wave after Springer, right?

    If anyone is still looking, saw 2 x Siege Chromia at the Brooklyn Park Walmart and 2 x SS Shatter + 1 x SS Cogman at the Brooklyn Park Target.

    Otherwise, has Walmart already dropped their G1 reissues? I've not seen anything there for awhile. Been wanting to get that G1 Soundwave reissue.

    I don't know if anyone cares but I saw wave three of the mircomasters at the St. Paul Target yesterday. They had three or for sets, I forget how many exactly.
