    Those plasti-hangers are like retail issued ones that they will put on a product that originally doesn’t come with hangers. They are honestly horrible at holding anything up

    Xenia Walmart has four cases of Sweeps and Wreck-Gar on the shelves this morning! They also have one Cyclonus and two Rhinoxes, if anyone is still after them.

    Ooooh I didn't even realize it was those! Yeah I've worked with them before... they are far from ideal. I have a sheet of them from my old job to use on occasion, the success rates are pretty mixed. lol

    More evidence that Target is getting a retail release of shattered glass goldbug. I think I remember hearing something about that when hasbro put it up for preorders. I think Protoman said something on his podcast

    It likely isnt. Sometimes stores get shipped the wrong item. A target employee said his store accidentally got shipped 2 Beast Wars megatron reissue figures. Neither the Goldbugs or Megatron are in the Target system. Walmarts have randomly received buzzworthy bumblebee stuff, and a store even got TR Brainstorm back in the day.

    Its just an accidental distribution thing.

    Circleville Walmart:

    Is there a lot of traffic through this Walmart, or are there scalpers in the area? Stock seems to sell pretty fast here for being this far away from a major population center.

    If it's the former, I'm more than happy to report when I find things, but if it's the latter, I'd really rather not enable bad practices.

    Every once in a while a small batch of something new gets put on the shelves, but it all seems to disappear extremely quickly, which is what's had me wondering.
