    Anyone else feel like the south metro gets the short end of the stick a lot when it comes to releases?

    The only Walmart that I sometimes find things before anywhere else is Cambridge, had my first (in person sightings) of the last few power rangers lightning collection waves.

    It seems to go back and forth. We've definitely had stuff before the north side in the past, it just seems ours pop up here and there where the north tends to get new stuff a bit more evenly. On the other hand, I don't think anyone's ever kept track.

    Locally? Prolly not. He's not supposed to be out until fall, and all the videos seem like they're of the 'fell off the truck' variety.

    So...gonna use the power of the forums here.

    My son is potty training and we're doing a sticker chart. Unfortunately he's decided he wants something that isn't in stores...yet?

    So if in the midst of your hunts you spot this guy, I don't need you to grab it but the DPCI/SKU so I could track it would be useful.

    Thanks!

    Target (Rochester, North)

    2 ER Optimus
    1 ER Astrotrain
    5+ ER Grapple
    1+ ER Starscream
    2+ Seige Singe! (they must have gotten a late stock of these)
    (There were newer displays from several weeks ago, but the elusive cybertronian villians are not in Rochester yet)

    Target (Rochester, South)
    1ER Optimus
    1SEIGE Shockwave
    5+ SEIGE SINGE! 1 RUNG left
    There are others but most sites have some of these already.
    Both sites had endcaps with more ER, SEIGE, and the other lines I don't collect.
    I would guess the July 4th weekend or next week and they have the villains in.

    Walmart North
    Several of each of the Netflix SEIGE available. 2x $35 Ultra Magnus, one the tap wasn't ripped open on. They had two Scrapface, multiple of each of the others, but it didn't look like a complete offering.

    I managed to sneak in an order for the 2-pack ER Seekers this morning, after using a Chrome extension that reloaded the page every 10 seconds and instantly notified me the Add To Cart button was active. My first attempt was thwarted by the dreaded "Your cart is empty" after clicking submit order.

    Maybe the only upcoming ER mainline release for leader class is doubledealer, it shouldn’t have gotten mixed up with any exclusives (that are exclusive other places). Possibly target has an er leader exclusive that’s yet to be announced or more than likely its the computers being stupid again.

    Doubledealer yeah, according to their site. Just order it off pulse or somewhere else. He's easy enough to get OL. I've been able to gently talk target folks into changing that by showing them other places where I can get it.
