    Why do the toy sections in my local stores seem full of everything except the empty spaces where the few lines I collect go??
    Ghostbusters figures dried up quick with me only getting Egon and Venkman.
    Got 5 HISS tanks on clearance...they finally stock the right size figure to go with them...nothing but Destros at every store!

    Walmart 1 a few days ago: One lonely Optimus Primal
    Target yesterday: Just Cyberverse and some shiny non-transforming Megatron and Bumblebees.
    Walmart 2 yesterday: Kingdom Deluxes...got Warpath.
    Should have picked up Blackarachnia too but she'll be around and I may need money as I'm on a backup PC right now because mine died and also hoping Ironhide/Prowl, Ratchet and Centurion Drone come back into stock while I have money.

    I'd say it's very healthy. Kingdom figures have started rolling in.

    Was out today to look at Cyberverse sections of walmarts to see if an employee accidentally put a not Cyberverse figure out.

    Nope :(

    The last couple of times I've been to both Target and Walmart, they've been absolutely gutted. Very few, if any Transformers figures are there.

    Walmart 1 again today. Just Cyberverse and Netflix leftovers. Pretty sure most of the Cyberverse was the same character too.
    Oh, and come to my Walmart if you need 20 each of He-Man, Skeletor and Battle Cat.

    I got 3 Walmarts near-ish me. The Walmart closest to my house only several minutes away in the "good" part of town, expensive neighborhood rarely if ever has any new Transformers. The other Walmart 12 minutes to the south of me in a worst area usually has a good selection of Transformers and the other Walmart to the north of me about 20 minutes away in a poorer neighboring town normally has a good selection of Transformers. It's been this way for years and years.

    Technically correct. Just because it's America's best doesn't mean it's good. It just means America's best is embarrassing.

    Oh no no no. Over my dead corps.

    I need pretty much everything new on that shelf including the Hotrod.

    We are definitely spoiled in Phoenix. There's targets,walmarts, rosses and Walgreens on every block it seems.(not to mention Chosen prime is 10 min from me) Before the pandemic we had quarterly meetups, damn covid :( 


    I moved here from the NW and the difference is night and day for retail hunting

    It's an improvement.

    A sad one, but an improvement nonetheless.
