    Shippensburg Walmart still has a Cyclonus. Not much else has changed.

    As if by magic, my Target had this endcap set today.

    It just had the eight wave 1 kingdom Deluxes and half of the Cyberverse items moved from the main aisle in it.

    *shrug*

    @Un Chakal: I had some free time and really dove in to the Galvatron shoulders debate (REALLY dove in, had no idea it was debated across as many forums and as deeply as it was) and you were right. When presented with actual evidence to weigh, if it doesn’t add up how I thought then I’m not too proud to admit I’m wrong and I was here. I apologize for reacting as poorly to you as I did the other day.

    PS - Chambersburg Ollies still ain’t got nothing…

    I saw two Origin BB's at Butler Target tonight. Couple T-Wrecks in the electronics. One Amber Collection

    Nothing of note at the Walmart, except some Lego Vader Meditation Chambers if you're looking for that.

    Had to go over to Harrisburg for a dental appointment this morning so decided I needed some laughs and checked out the one Target over near Colonial Park. LOLed at the lack of World's Collide and Origin Bee and raged at the empty peg for the Animal Crossing Sanrio Amiibo cards.

    Same, haven't seen a report of Galvatron in some time. Isn't he included in those upcoming wave leaks though?

    I'm sure he'll return to stores soon.
    As soon as he finishes his extended pacific cruise.

    Pottstown Target has nothing of interest TF-wise. They do have 3 of the ML Happy Hogan/Iron Man 2-packs. I couldn't pull the trigger on it for $52.99, seeing as I'm only interested in the Happy figure.

    Galvatron might be harder to find compared to other figures. When the Chambersburg Walmart recently did their reset, they removed Kingdom leaders from the Transformer section. So they won't be getting them anymore. I don't know if Chambersburg Target did the same thing or not with their recent reset.

    If our Walmart did it, chances are other Walmarts did it too.

    Something going on with Galvatron. I pre-ordered from Target and every Thursday since it was originally supposed to ship in early July, I've received a delay notification that I have to approve. It's now estimated to arrive September 2nd, but no doubt it'll get pushed back further. This must be happening to others?

    Safe bet there.
    There are delays everywhere in the distribution chain for galvatron and anything manufacturered overseas.
    From getting space on ships, loading& unloading and getting product to distribution centers & beyond.
    There are delays everywhere.
    Add in consumer impatience, you get the perfect storm.
    Remember, TF's come in stages
    They start out popping up everywhere for a couple of weeks.
    Then they vanish for 3-4 weeks.
    Then they slowly trickle back in.
    Rodimus, right now, is in the first stage.
    He's everywhere.
    2 weeks from now, stage 2.
    Everyone will complain.about not finding him.
    I've seen signs on other state threads that galvatron is starting to trickle back in.
    It's going to take time for distribution to get back to normal.
    Target's ordering system simply isn't up to dealing with these delays.
    Or with everybody's impatience.
    They can't even handle their own.
    Delay notices.
    Cancelations.
    Most automated.
    We need to be patient.
    We need to pass it on.

    I can be patient as long as they don't cancel since I bought it at a sale price.

    Stop by the East Reading target for some medication. Went back to take a look and was shocked to find a bumblebee worlds collide set. They did not have anymore nor anything else noteworthy.

    btw has anyone found the Walgreens red alert yet?
