    I stopped by the Lenoir City Walmart and picked up Wreck-Gar. He’s a nice addition to my 86 Collection.

    I can understand that its been hell looking for figures lately, so far the only target to seem to have anything is the Cool Springs Target, I haven't even gone to Walmart since they've been lacking quite a bit its sad though I use to give the Franklin Walmart very high praise since sometimes they would have stuff before Target now forget it just a lot of empty pegs just sucks Covid really put a damper on alot of toy collecting

    Hell I would deff I don't trust Walmart what so ever actually funny story I saw someone today trying to return a Kingdom Galvatron figure at the Cool Springs Target this morning yet it the inside of the box did not display galvatron it look like another figure who it was I just couldn't make it out but it was funny since the dude walked up to the counter and said yes I want to return this and guy behind the counter without missing a beat said sir we can't take this the box has been open and there is a different figure inside it the dude threw a hissy fit right then and there and knowing me I had to open my mouth and say to the dude can you please act like an adult instead of a spoiled child he told me to shut up and mind my business and started yelling at the dude behind the counter demanding his money back, I took four dollars out of my wallet and threw it at the dude and told him here's your money and now go away the dude just stared daggers at me but in the end they had him escorted out of Target lol Highlight of my day

    No sightings to speak of but on the subject of returns I’ve got a bit of advice. Don’t be afraid to just go ask customer service for help.

    If you’re worried about swapped product in a closed box just go to customer service and say something like “Hi, I’m interested in buying this but with the closed box I’m worried that it might not be right/all there/ reports of swaps. Can you open it for me and let me see that it’s all good before I check out?”
    I have done this for about a half dozen items over the years and never had an issue. Just make it clear that you want to buy it and ask specifically that *they* be the one to open it.

    Customer service is jerked around enough that they usually appreciate a straight shooter request.

    It may feel kind of awkward but it’s a damn sight better than getting home and finding out you’ve been had.

    Yeah, the first "new" Transformers my Walmart has gotten since July was one case of Tracks and friends. I'm not that bothered about it since I'm not planning to buy Waspinator or Shadow Panther until/unless they get marked down at some later point, so I don't care that I didn't get the latest Kingdom wave. But I will concede annoyance that Studio Series or Deluxe Cyberverse didn't get restocked so I could have maybe grabbed a Sharkticon or Cheetor.

    Same here but at the time of the crowdfunding campaign for Unicron I was buying a house and that was my main priority and seeing all the photos of the figure didn’t sell me at all on the figure but eventually the figure dropped and a buddy of mine got one and man after like an hour or so I started to regret not putting money down on it, but I did manage to get one but for double the price than I would have liked, so my buddy ended up getting laid off due to Covid and started his new business selling collectibles on EBay (Scalper Friend) he had an additional unicron on eBay for about 1550 but he had some medical issues that popped up and needed fast cash so I offered 1000 to 1100 for the extra figure and it was a done deal, I will say he amazing and very imposing the sheer size of him both in planet mode and robot mode is just awesome and every time I see it the kid in me gets way too excited lol probably one my favorite figures to date and now that they announced Victory Saber I’m all on that I got my preordered in and can’t wait to get it and even if your not a big fan of Star Saber and Victory Leo you still can make some money on him

    Hit up the Clinton Hwy Walmart last night and happened to find a Rodimus. I had customer service open it for me, which was apparently an unusual request, but the employee seemed to understand the reasoning and did it with no qualms.

    He was all there, so no now I've added him to the collection.
