    Chambersburg Wal Mart this mornign has a deluxe Arcee and Soundwave, a few new Botchots and not much else. They have a leader DotM Ironhide and a voyager DotM Megatron which I haven't seen in awhile.
    I know the wait between waves is always frustrating, but this time it seems even more so. Every wall of yellow and black I see just spells out that the retailers won't stock without empty pegs.

    We should buy all the Bees from Target...
    ...and return them all to Walmart!

    Clears pegs at the store that is generally more on top of their game, yes?

    It would work if the local stores wouldn't look at the empty pegs and yell "We need more Bumblebees!!!"

    Wilkes-Barre Target has no new stock in the back...not that they'd have any place to put them on the pegs with the 12 Bumblebees and 1 Cliffjumper...

    I'm more than a bit discouraged right now in my hunting... the Walmart that is literally 2 minutes from my house has not put out any new stock in weeks. Well before Easter at least. I see more TFs in the clearance isle than on the regular pegs.

    The Walmart/Target that are about 25 minutes from me at least put out new stock - even if its the same waves.

    Tytus - let us know if you try out your experiment... so I can avoid Walmart in Cranberry from now on, haha!

    Well, if I were to try it, I wouldn't dump them all at one store. I would likely distribute them all along rt. 422 on my semi-weekly trip to Johnstown.

    Pittsburgh would also be a good experimental location, with more people to lend a hand haha.

    TrU won't take returns without a receipt, and even then it's not guaranteed. At least that's how the one in Hagerstown is. They know their prices are higher, and probably expect people to try to profit from it with returns.

    My local TRU has always been good about returns (with the receipt) but I know they don't stick tightly to corporate policy. Maybe at best get some store credit.

    But in any case, I was just kidding around and would never expect anyone to try and move product between stores just to get one to order more.

    But I wouldn't complain if someone did, either.

    Well, stopped at Kmart and Target in Chambersburg. Not expecting anything, but what the heck.
    Kmart has exactly the same stuff I've mentioned for the last month, and Target has an Arcee and Ratchet. Notning else in the computers whatsoever.

    Quakertown Target has Wave 2 Bot Shots, but I got the only chaser Bumblebee. Everything else is still there. 15 deluxe Prime Bees just waiting to be claimed as well.

    man.. i really wish bumblebee was the "chase figure" in each line/size class lol.

    it's a shame.. kids who collect today probably love bumblebee.. and i bet just a small few of those kids will keep it in its packaging or whatever, then 30 years down the road that person is going to want to sell it and it's going to be worth absolutely nothing because hasbro has produced far too many of them.

    they're really destroying the value of their most prized character.

    I know at Babies 'R' Us, we take returns without the receipt, but you'll get the lowest selling price back (I think in store credit, not cash, but I'm not completely sure, b/c I never do returns).

    Lititz Target keeps putting out wave 2 Bot Shots, but that's about it. I think they're on case #3 for the week.
