    The problem with this set is packing 2 highly desirable guys with 3 that were shelfwarming as recently as December. And isn’t Scrapface shortpacked?

    I think I might get everyone but Chromia (that mold and remold and reengineering have never looked even a little bit good to me in any of its various permutations) if I can, but I just feel like Mirage and Scrapface will be a huge pain.

    I think Chromia is shortpacked rather than Mirage. When I found these I thought I saw 2 Mirages but only 1 Chromia. Scrapface is definitely shortpacked as there was only one

    I’m an essential retail worker according to the state of Ohio and the Walmart I found these at was on my way to work today

    Chromia being shortpacked is good, my totally un scientific observations was she was by far the worst deluxe shelfwarmer in Siege (with Hound and Sideswipe being the next 2 worst)

    Scrapface being shortpacked seems totally insane, I mean, I know he’s a nobody, but being the ONLY new character and KIND of an army builder and the only true Decepticon in the wave you’d think SOMEBODY at Hasbro would have been like “maybe he should be 3 per case”...

    I think Hound should have been shortpacked since he was repacked twice during Siege in waves 3 and 5

    I'm not criticizing you, but what does being essential and going to work have to to with stopping at Wal-Mart on the way?

    I only mentioned it so that others know that I’m not just leaving my house because I’m bored or whatever

    Plus, they now sell groceries, toiletries, paper products, and other household essentials, so you can buy things other than just toys, if you're into that sorta thing....

    If you’re already in the store to buy essentials, the toy section isn’t that far out of the way...
    That said, I’d really like to find HotLink when I make a Walmart run this week.

    Yeesh... this world we find ourselves in.

    Well, since the local WalMarts haven't picked up much in the way of Earthrise yet, I suspect I won't see these anytime soon if at all.

    I really would like to collect that Mirage and Scrapface though.

    Have them on preorder, but if I am gonna wait in line to get my med refill (really shouldn't have done that at Walmart originally) and brave the people of Walmart, I damn sure am gonna be checking the toy section.

    TFormers reports that they were found in New York as well.

    So much 35th Anniversary product hanging around my stores. Skeptical about seeing this line.

    She seemed to be the only WFC shelfwarmer in my area. I may pick this one up if they fixed the panty problem.

    These netflix deluxes showed up at a whole bunch of walmarts all at once all over the Charlotte, NC area like a week ago. I figured it wouldn't be news because we're usually one of the last few states to receive new product lol.
