    I was wondering the same thing. Bloomsburg still carries them, I know, but I haven't seen one in Wilkes-Barre in forever.

    Got an email from Pulse saying my Pit of Judgment has shipped.

    Frankly, I forgot I ordered it.

    I have been stalking Target for Galvatron, but I placed an order with BBTS and it is currently in processing, so I'll probably get that first before actually seeing one in a store, Just like Kingdom BW Megs.

    I have terrible luck with finding Leader Class figures in store and Target is my only option. Have heard of some ppl finding them at Best Buy, but I have never seen a single Transformer at mine.

    BTW...

    Wilkes Barre Target:
    Kingdom Core class Wave 3, 3 Megs, 3 Starscream.

    Pittston Walmart:
    Wave 3 Netflix Deluxe few of each.

    Butler Target still has the same 2 Dinobots, Ultra Magnus, and Airazor they've had for weeks.

    Walmart has lots of Netflix deluxes and RID figures.

    Airazor seems to be another of those figures where you thought if you didn't get it right away, you'd miss out, but now it seems like she's widely available.

    Most figures start out like this.
    Sporadic initial release.
    Everybody panics because they can't find the figure they want.
    Scalpers salivate at the profit they envision.
    We buy into the rarity of the situation.
    We overpay for that figure.
    A month or two later, the toy is everywhere.
    We question our decision to buy early and promise not to do it again.
    Then wo do it anyway.
    We're week.
    Galvatron is that figure now.
    Quick intro release.
    Poofs.
    Replaced with previous wave.
    Shoulders issues don't help.
    A month or 2 from now Galvatron will be everywhere.
    Hopefully holding his shoulders high.
    Clogging shelves for months.
    To be replaced by fresh stock we'll go gaga over.
    Gavatron in Legacy:Evolution packaging.
    Oh joy.

    IDK man, it's hard to tell with some figures and depends on the area. Take Kindgom BW Megs, I have only ever seen one in a store once, about 3 or 4 weeks ago. I got mine from Pulse back in March so did not pay scalper pricing, but if relying on retail, it would have been a late wait, but only 1 opportunity. Unless you stalk your Target to a point of insanity, or go to multiple Target's daily. Neither is an option for me, so online retail it is since Leader Class figures have been getting increasingly harder for me to find, unless it's a Bayverse character. Even then, that is if I am going specifically to the Dickson City Walmart.

    I have yet to see Galvatron, so BBTS, which mine arrived this morning. Bad shoulders, but at least both were bad, and I don't mind the pin facing front. Just glad I didn't get one with one messed up shoulder. I've seen enough pics of those floating around.

    Now to stalk my Target for a Rodimus. Lol.

    I do get to hit a few targets at a time.
    Driving niece to work.
    I also have been looking at other state threads as well.
    I've been seeing this pattern.
    Galvatron appeared everywhere for week or 2 than poof.
    Empty shelves.
    Seeing later stage of pattern right now with megatron(beast).
    Showed up for week or 2.
    Than poof.
    3 weeks later another week+ surge than nothing.
    That's when I got mine.
    Right now it emerging again.
    Seen it a few times myself.
    The leftover ultra magnus' being seen around are not just fron Galvatron wave but megs as well.
    Give everybody a couple of flashes & get them to stores or online.
    Then pause.
    Then go for the kill.

    Don't LOL about rodimus just yet.
    Someone on California thread got a hit on target's DCPI.
    No toy?, but it could be getting close.
    Happy hunting.

    Supposedly, someone found one in Northern VA. I read this on one of the TF FB Groups I belong too. No pics, so I am taking with a grain of salt. I have never seen any Titan Class figures in a store since TRU closed. I have seen both Commander Class figures at my Target but only once each time. So I might get lucky.

    I did see titan scorponok once or twice last summer in Target.
    Never Walmart.
    I did see scorponok & omega supreme in the Uncanny comics in Montgomeryville mall.
    Keep an eye on the target shelf tags after July 1.
    A titan one could appear.

    Some Targets have put the shelf tag for Commanders back up. Mine, here in the Youngstown area did so.

    EDIT: Called some Targets in my area and gave them this DPCI: 087-16-4302 and confirmed he is in the system, they don't have any in-stock yet, and his price is officially $84.99.

    So, the price hike is in effect, people.

    My east coast Target is due to get Wave 3 and Commanders in late July to Early August, so they might not be popping up for a while

    Are you ready????
    Actual Walmart new sightings!!!!!!!

    Walmart - hilltown/Hatfield
    Kingdom
    Core
    Full cases of both wv3 & wv2
    3ea soundwave & dracodon
    3ea megatron & starscream
    1-2ea vertibreak, rattrap & optimus
    All cores available

    Full case of wv1 deluxes

    RED
    5 arcee, 2 cheetor & 2ea optimus, megatron

    Studio Series
    Several scavengers & overload


    Note to all....
    Galvatron is no longer limited to target & online shops.
    He was spotted in a Walmart in New Jersey.
    More options are always good.

    Update to the above note....
    Also found elsewhere.
    Both shoulder versions have been seen.

    Also...
    Look at your galvatron before you buy it.
    And not because of the shoulder.
    Several different sighting have spotted TR galvatron in the box instead of kingdom galvatron.
    It gets worst.
    Someone took a purple sharpie, re-colored siege megatron's chest & returned it in kingdom galvatron's box. (See Below)
    These return "specialists" need eye exams.
    And IQ tests.
    At least Hasbro still has clear windows on the packages so we can tell the difference.
