    Curious to know if it is too late to find Studio Series Ironhide at this point?

    I have never seen SS Ironhide, Beetle Bee, or KSI Sentry in DFW.

    my nearest Walmart had 2 as of ystrdy. previously spotted one at target also.. I think theres only one per case he's a little harder to come by. that and hes an army builder...

    Amazon still has him in stock for retail price.. that's where I got mine. opted for free shipping, got to my apartment in 2 days. I believe the north side distribution center has them on-hand here locally. I recieved a good copy, no QC problems..

    Neither were in the system at the time, so you may be better off using the general brickseek link which is how I found them.

    TRANSFORMERS LEGION G1 ASSORTMENT - Walmart Inventory Checker - BrickSeek

    Several stores hit a sudden uptick in stock, but the UPCs are:

    630509793082 Warpath
    630509793105 Gears

    I think the case assortment is 2xBumblebee 2xGears 2xWarpath

    Found Beetle Bee like twice ever, bought the first one. Seen tons of Sentry, though not as much lately.

    Just curious -- have the discount sightings of Overlord been limited to Ollies and Marshall's? And have any of those been in TX?

    I saw a ton of cheap Overlords at the Ollie's in Mesquite back in October when they had their grand opening. Haven't been back since though.

    I did actually find Beetle Bee on Saturday night in Dallas, grabbed him since I’d never seen him before. Still no KSI Sentry, I’m about to get two from Amazon and call it quits.

    found gears & warpath in SW Houston tdy, so they're definately out there. but in very few numbers. the post above is correct. case count on "wave 2" mini-cars is 2 gears, 2 warpath, and more bumblebees..

    also, while making my rounds this mrng I did not see any wave 5 studio series in my area. all I'm seeing is restock of all the previous waves... not quite there yet..

    Picked up both Studio series Optimus and Bonecrusher at walmart yesterday morning off Military rd/city base. Interesting enough was that the price point for them was $26.86 ea.
