    I just took a case of Voyagers off the pallet at Bridgeton Walmart. I took Wreck-gar but the two Thrust figures are still in the box if anyone is looking for them.

    Kirkwood Target has 4 T-wrecks left but they're in the back so you have to ask them for it.

    So if I'm getting this right, it sounds like cases are 2 Thrusts and 1 Wreck-Gar. Just something to keep in mind when hunting.

    Correct. Which makes sense, because clearly a redeco of a BB movie toy is what people are more excited about compared to a near perfect rendition of a childhood favorite character.

    was a 1:1 case ratio really out if the question? I don’t recall cases always being 3 figures per case- but maybe so. I realize either character has the potential to shelf warm, but yes you’d think Thrust is more likely to do so than Wreck-gar.

    Deluxes are 4 to a case and Voyagers are 3 to a case.

    Made a quick round of a few stores this morning.
    Arnold Target: some last wave deluxe and misc figures
    Arnold Walmart: several SS Grimlock, not much else
    SoCo Walmart: supposedly there's an action figure aisle, I saw nothing but empty shelves
    SoCo Target: 8" (maybe 10" actually) Prime PVC statue, and some large scale (12"-ish) Buzzworthy Bumblebee movie guys

    Making my rounds hunting for Wreck-Gar. I’ll update this as I go:

    Walmart North Lindbergh - Just 1 Thrust left
    Walmart Hwy K - Nothing
    Walmart Wentzville - Grindor, 2 Thrusts
    Walmart 64/Hwy N - Also 1 Grindor and 2 Thrusts. Lady in a Hasbro shirt was stocking and said to just keep checking the shelves as stock is coming in. Not much help there but it was nice of her to try.
    Walmart Jungermann - Nothing

    And so my hunt concludes, unsuccessful.

    Maplewood Walmart has the appearance of not having a dedicated Transformers section, like they just throw the toys down the aisle and they land where they land.

    Is anyone in Springfield interested in a kingdom Dinobot? I have an extra and I wanted to give you guys first dibs. I am asking $30. It is new and unopened. Send me a PM if you are interested.

    Finally snagged a Wreck-Gar out at the Chesterfield Walmart. Two Thrusts left there.

    Literally just missed a Wreck Gar at the Arnold Walmart this morning. As I walked in the aisle....some lucky guy was snapping a pic of it and walking off with it. There's three Thrusts on the shelf if you are hunting him.
