    The Wal-Mart off Round Grove in Lewisville has Netflix Wave 2 on the shelves. I picked up both Bee and Soundwave. When I left there were still 2 Soundwaves, 3 Primes, 3 Elitas, and 2 Bees. Looks like they may have just been stocked based on how neat the aisle looked.

    Bummer, I was just there last night prior the restock apparently. I can’t get there until after work and trust the Bees will be gone by then. Happy I at least grabbed Soundwave last week.

    Onslaught, It must have been someone else if you saw two other people. Although, with as many TF hunters seemingly in Cedar Park I'm sure we have probably crossed paths at some point.

    When I left there around 4pm today the Walmart at 4691 TX-121 Lewisville has 1 Netflix Voyager Soundwave left, and several Voyager Primes. Netflix Deluxes looked well stocked too but I didn't go through them, as I was able to grab both 1 Bee and 1 Elita-1 directly from the front of the shelf.

    Also, if anyone learns that any of the Targets within 30-minutes highway drive of the Plano area get Voyager Thrust in stock, please let me know as he is the last figure I want/need this year. Happy hunting everyone!

    Walmart Telephone still has 3 BB's and 3 Elita. 2 Optimus.

    Confirmed that Five Below is carrying botbots bakery bytes.

    Kids don't collect transformers but would still always sell with parents and grandparents buying them as gifts. Even that seems to has start going away some.

    Well everyone I had to end up getting tested for Covid and was tested positive. So I've been trying to fight this thing off these past few weeks. I have been doing much better though at this moment. My parents caught it and I've been having to take care of them now. So I haven't been out toy hunting lately as I have not had the time to. The only thing ya'll have been finding that I want is the Netflix Bumblebee but I have him on pre-order on Walmart's site but that is not always a guarantee. So leave me a Bee or two on the shelf if I ever get back out. Hope everyone has stayed safe and is well.

    Found the last BB at Wayside WM earlier. They had lots of Wheeljacks and a couple Elita-1's left. A Sideswipe or 2.
    Lots of Grapple's.

    i think it's parents dont buy their kids tfs anymore bc my nephew and nieces are crazy about them but my sister won't go buy them any. i believe her mentality is that i have them all or pretty close to it so I'm supposed give them all away to her kids to enjoy lol. as much as I'd like to, I'm not rich and i can't. this hobby ain't cheap but I do hook rhem up every chance i get. when i hear they got good scores at the end their school year, bday and xmas. i feel like my sister takes advantage of this bc she don't ever get then anything cool like i do

    West Houston here, and I confirm, no BumblebeeS around here. I was lucky enough to grab one a few days ago. I stopped at Walmart near Fulshear early morning while buying coffe at Starbucks and I saw an attendant opening TF boxes and restocking the shelves. I got only one of each Netflix wave and leave everything else, first time in 6 years living in the US meeting an attendant opening boxes. Unusually I am able to ask for Disney Cars, Monster Trucks and Hotwheels new boxes but never Transformers.
    A matter of luck I guess

    The Wal Mart by the Dell Diamond in around Rock had about 5 Bumblebees as of 8am, but no Soundwaves.

    The Georgetown Wal Mart had no Bees or Soundwaves.

    The Village at Allen Target has around ten Decepticon Clone packs, if anyone's still looking for them. No Thrust or Runabout, sadly.
    Also, any new sightings in Frisco?
