In general in the USA, yes. Here in Texas? don't know
looking at targets website, i dont see any local stores showing thrust to be "in stock". so i dont think thrust has made it to the lone star state yet.
Princeton Walmart has wave two Netflix deluxes.
yeah someone in cali on seibertron copped him i think
I am pretty sure this is basically whats happening with GI Joe and Target. But they are not ever going to tell us if a figure is going to get a release. They are forcing you to gamble. Which still leaves us with that bitterness and frustration. I am positive we will get this Netflix Soundwave again. Either as a repack with the next wave of netflix or a selects with all the tapes.
I am still going to walmart on my way home everyday..... 8-(
yeah it is incredibly frustrating, but until online sales volumes top retail sales for the majority of Hasbro’s product lines, that’s what we’re dealing with. But I agree, we definitely haven’t seen the last of the Soundwave or Bumblebee molds. Too much money went into them and they are too popular as characters for them to only be used once.
i can't even find thrust on their website since the beginning of this month. anyone have a link? or using brick seek?
Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Earthrise Voyager WFC-E26 Thrust
Anyone able to find a netflix bumblebee in the SA area?
Found him yesterday at the Austin highway Walmart they also had prime
Went by Madness Comics in Plano today; they have Selects Bug Bite, Exhaust and Greasepit at $29.99 each. They’re running a buy 2 get 1 free sale until just before Christmas though. They also had ER W2 and W3, minus Sunstreaker.
That’s not bad at all especially considering theyd run you ~$30 shipped anyways
Several Soundwave at Austin walmart 620 and lakecreek
Snagged one just now, thank you! That rounded off my shopping for Christmas!
Did my monthly outside-the-city-limit hunt today.
Only saw Runabout at one of three Targets I hit. I bought up every single one. And then return them. Easier then asking for a price adjustment.
Target 646 was the one with a Sky Lynx I think.
Ross does not seem to have gotten anything new for weeks. Just a scattering of botbots 8-packs.
Walmart Dixie Farm is one of the ones closest to me. I hit it up Sunday and Tuesday and they only had a single Hotlink. Today, they had two Hotlinks, one Megatron, and one Optimus. . . .
Walmart El Dorado had. . .4 Optimus on the shelves. I looked up and there were six on the top shelf. Lucky number six was Soundwave. So. . .9 Optimus left at El Dorado.
Walmart Kemah I saw 2 Elitas and no Bee. Then I looked up to the top shelf and there was one Bee sitting up there by himself. I moved him down.
Walmart 646 had a ton of hotlinks and 2 megatron.
Walmart Greyhound Racetrack had at least two bees. I didn't look beyond and count the Elita.
Most of the Walmarts have some form of earthrise wave 2.
Oh yeah, I hit the Walgreens Kemah out of curiosity and that Bluestreak from a month ago was still sitting there.
Most sightings I see in here and the walmart thread are people celebrating finding BB and Elita. I would have guessed scalpers would be scooping both up.
Have to agree with this. At the end of the day Hasbro's biggest customer are Walmart and Amazon. And Walmart doesn't care that much about toys and adult collectors but they'll still throw their weight around to get exclusives just because they can.
No harm in signing the petition though. As kids drop off and adult collectors become a bigger part of final sales Hasbro will have to at least meet them partway. Hasbro has already adjust already with all the G1-ness we've been getting and finally packing some products in solid cases. FYI, even though it was part disaster - part greatness, the only reason MattyCollector happened was because at that time retailers said not interested in MOTUC.
When HasbroToyShop was around the rumor was that it was not allowed to be too powerful because Walmart wanted first dibs on everything and didn't want a threat to it's online business. Pulse is an improvement but at the end of the day Hasbro corporate will always choose Walmart over Pulse. Logistically and enconomically, from what we know of Walmart, this rumor passes the sniff test.
Walmart off of Whitestone in Cedar Park has two each of the REDs, full sets of Netflix Deluxes wave 2, $17 earthrise Voyagers, and one $10 airwaves.
Just ran by the WalMart in Nacogdoches this morning and snagged the Soundwave three-pack. They still had an Optimus Prime and some of the Netflix Wave 2 deluxes (besides Bumblebee and Elita-1, who I snagged earlier this week).
Kids don't collect transformers. I never see children in the TF aisle which has dwindled to a few pegs over the past 5 years. It's amazing they still are able to pump out awesome toys and content for us old dudes.
The Walmart in Balch Springs has two each of Netflix Wave 2
