    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.

    Looks like Amazon is doing the same crap with Siege TC that they did to me when I pre-ordered Counter Punch a year ago. Waiting until TC's ship date only for those goofballs to say the damn thing has delayed until Sept. 4th..?

    I swear, if retail is screwing up badly then it's online companies saying "Hold my Beer".

    Same here... On the phone with customer support now...
    Pulled the same shenanigans with Jetfire for me. Didn't notify until ~9:30 AM the day it was due to be received and then "Ooops... we don't have it!"
    The bad thing about Jefire was they estimated a week later, I got it from Pulse 3 days later (due to 4th of July) and then Amazon was like "Oh! We found some! Your order is shipped!" The same day I received it from Pulse, so I couldn't stop the order and had to call them to get a return label. Once they saw what happened they were cool with it and generated a return label for the trouble, but it was annoying nonetheless.
    But the second time? Yeah... this needs to stop with "preorders" and not being notified until the day it's due. I'd be a bit more forgiving for even 2-3 days out saying "Hey, we ran out." but the day of? That's just bad (and the rep agrees it's bad so far).

    Yeah, that's why I demanded a credit.

    They only offered $15, I probably could've held out for more but it's a Monday and I didn't wanna act like the jackasses I deal with on the phone at work. I still haven't even opened my Rain Makers package, so that'll do for now.

    Shippensburg Walmart put out those big Cyberverse figures that are $30. Woohoo, big reset there. The three Dropkicks that have been languishing for months weren't even dusted off.

    Target put out Cyberverse stuff as well. New one-step and a big Alpha Trion. Nothing actually noteworthy though.

    I just picked up my 10 piece micromaster set from the Montgomeryville Target that I pre-ordered off their website. I didn't check to see if any were actually on the floor but I did ask if they had any of the rainmakers and they don't seem to have them in stock.

    Mount Pocono Walmart had at least two each of the cassette two packs but no Soundwaves as of ~5:00pm. The only siege item I noticed was Shockwave. East Stroudsburg Walmart had Siege Hound and Shockwave and not much else that I noticed.

    I think for now it ships with Megatron - at least that's what Entertainment Earth had his case as.
    It may be a revision case later that has him with Springer?

    Chambersburg Target has two Long Hauls and a KSI Boss (bought), plus I picked up my Rainmaker pack I ordered.
    Been a good day for flying Decepticons.

    For anybody interested, Pottstown Walmart has 3 of the Grandmaster/Korg ML sets. And a few of the Colossus/Juggernaut sets. Nothing of interest TF related

    Hilltown Walmart has 3 Brunts and a few Red Alerts (2?). Along with some wave 2 Deluxes. Reset is in progress, TF section shrunk again.

    Wilkes-Barre Target had a Long Haul and the KSI Boss. Bought the former.

    Walmart's TF section currently looks like this:

    Which is, sadly, par for the course with that store.

    OK, anyone who has still seen ML Proxima Midnight hanging around, I might ask for you to pick it up for me. I'm tired of looking.

    There was one at the local Walmart yesterday. I'll see if it's still there when I stop this morning.

    Edit: Chambersburg Walmart has the Soundwave reissue, minus the one I bought (happy dance), and one Jetfire.
