    This Walgreen have some Kingdom deluxes, but no KD Red Alert either.

    That Sideswipe down there. Bottom shelf, to the right.

    How old is that thing? Is that when they last bothered to re-stock properly?

    That’s Cyber Battalion Sideswipe from 2018. It is only sold at Walgreens in US.

    What Transformers section? They’re absolutely nonexistent in my local major stores. Distribution flat-out hates me and it’s to where I say f**k them back and order online from now on

    The Target near me actually had some stuff out today. New stock of the SS Thrust and Wreckgar, and some Buzzworthy 2-packs. But those aside, the pegs were empty. No Cyberverse, Kingdom, SS, nothing.

    Walmart’s transformers section is nonexistent. Seriously. They had nothing. I had to do a double take because I thought I missed the section. Nope. They literally had 0 transformers.

    The sad state of my local Transformers section.
    No, this is not a photo from last year, this was earlier this afternoon. Wave 1 earthrise is the newest wave they have stocked (and i'm not into the Cyberverse things, but I think they have been there for a long time too). And it's the same at other shops of the same chain.

    I can relate

    My first SS70 Starscream was returned. QC issues with the wings made it impossible to pose without them going limp. Also managed to break those weird trapezoidal white pieces in his abdomen that attach to the gun in vehicle mode.

    2nd time around is better, and Thrust is even better. That said, the black null rays on both figures are WAY too loose and come off far too easily. Would have also been great if Thrust’s cone head would have allowed for some more neck movement

    The way this mold holding the main gun also looks terrible. The main gun don’t seem to sitting flush with the arm and the wrist that holding the gun easily bends down (on my copy) due to the weapon’s weight.

    This is BBM Thrust holding the gun properly, and it still looks too weird for me.

    The gun is flush with the top of the forearm. It’s the angular bottom of the forearm and the hollowness of the rear of the gun which makes things look…off…

    Still grateful we have a Seeker figure with waist movement though

    Wow, your store still has a tumbleweed? Lucky...

    Not until mid to late October.

    This store has been like this for weeks.

    No, there's nothing else out of frame, on the top shelf, or misplaced on other aisles. :(

    Then there's this store. Okay, there's a Vertebreak and some other Core Class, 2 Thrusts, and a bit of Cyberverse junk (Arcee is the only deluxe they've had out in forever).

    And R.E.D.s... R.E.D.s all the way down. The 7 that have been shelfwarming for weeks were not enough, so they put out 8 more (some are on the top shelf).

    What I would give for my local section to look like yours. I don't think I've seen anything other than Deluxe or Voyager class toys there in several years.
