    Wilkes-Barre Target is a wasteland for anything. All that seemed to be left besides Siege stuff was three helicopter Dropkicks and some voyager Megatrons. Only three MLs on the shelf too.

    Chambersburg Walmart has a Brunt, Red Alert and a few Chromias and Hounds, plus a few Cyberverse and movie bots.

    Target has that new Cyberverse Optimus/Ark combining thing. Not much else.

    Pittston Walmart has 2 Brunt’s and 1 Springer. I was shocked they finally had something new!

    If anyone's looking for the G1 cassettes, head on over to the Hiltown Wally World. I had them dig them out of the back. Unfortunately you will also have to have someone grab them from the back because instead of putting them out he took them back. BUT they ARE there, 5 of each remain so have at them!

    Royersford Target has 2 of the Micromaster 10 packs out. Still no Rainmakers.

    And I guess I missed the Ghost/Luis ML 2 pack

    Shrewsbury Walmart had an unopened box of g1 cassettes on a pallet. I opened them and put them on the top shelf above the transformers. Hope you are tall!

    Brickseek says 10 piece micro masters are around but don't bother to ask around, I did and they can't find them.

    Thanks for the PSA...Is there a spot on the shelves where these will be eventually placed?

    Uwchlan Target had 1 of the 10 piece micromasters.

    Rainmakers are still missing in the area though.

    Mechanicsburg Target finally did their "reset," and as expected no new product. Glad I have no interest in the Rainmakers or those jokes of Micromasters, or I would be bit disappointed.

    The resets take a while. It isn't an overnight event. Chambersburg Target is also doing their reset and has empty shelves with signs saying stuff is on it's way, along with a few sections completed. Usually takes a week or so.

    20190804_133657.jpg 20190804_123722.jpg G1 cassettes update. Hatfield WM on 309 does indeed have 3 of each left. I just walked out with 2. There are no shelf label for them so they took it to the back.
    Full props to Tanvir, and assistant managers Ayana and Mike. Took Mike less than 5 minutes to pull them from the back.

    After striking out at Neshaminy Walmart this morning and then Quakertown this afternoon (neither was able to locate them), drove down to Hatfield and after about 30min walked out with a set of the cassettes. 2 sets remain, I recommend you ask for Mike directly at customer service should you choose to pursue them. Took them forever to locate Tanvir, he then went to Ayana who said they didn't have any left. Then Tanvir went off to find Mike who finally found the other box. Don't bother asking the kid working the toy section, he had no idea where in the back they even keep toys.

    Nice. Tanvir was the only employee to even try to get an assistant manager to assist.
    That's just a straight-shooter with upper management written all over him.

    Cassettes are on the pegs at Carnegie Walmart. I didn't realize they would be so pricey, but I'm probably just being cheap.

    Shippensburg Walmart has nothing new, but I think they're just starting the reset. Should be done by Halloween.

    99% of the time my Walmart looks like they're in the middle of a reset, even when it's business as usual.

    Right now, they have 3-4 Cogman wave Studio Series Deluxes, two Chromias from Siege, and they filled in the empty pegs with those vinyl guys. Oh, and a destroyed Siege Starscream.

    I haven't seen a planogram, but I'm betting it won't be that much better after the reset as, historically, they haven't stocked anything but Deluxes and the occasional Voyager in forever.

    We did get G1 Starscream (got the initial amount of Starscream, never a restock), Hot Rod (in decent numbers), and Optimus Prime, but nothing else.

    No BotBots, except for those single packs found in the stocking stuffer row that lasted a day.

    No Cyberverse since Wave 1.

    No Bumblebee Movie stuff since the Wave 1 One-Steps.

    No...nothing, really.

    TLDR: my Walmart is pure garbage.
