    I wouldn't put much stock in what some random Target employee said. its been my experience they just don't really know it have access to that info.

    If that's the case, I'm worried the same thing might be happening with Origin Bumblebee too. Almost every Target I've been to has two pegs with labels dedicated to the figure, but I've never actually seen it in any stores (there were a few fleeting sightings reported here a while back, but that's it), and the Target app lists it as "Not sold in this store" for every store in town, rather than being listed as merely out of stock.

    I know she isn't scheduled to be shipped to any stores. There's not even a spot for her on the planograms. But to be fair, T-Wrecks didn't have one either.

    Also, she's available online right now, and at 25% off, to boot.

    Midvale Walmart has a boatload of figures, the most I’ve seen in 2 years

    So I went back to see what bits were there, it’s a lot of sideswipes, more than 10. A few b127s and a lot of kups and blurrs

    Either that Wave got overproduced, or they're worried that they won't have anything to sell during the holiday shopping season- Centerville Walmart got the same wave in even bigger proportions. At least 5 or six cases.

    Also tried to go to the Smiths Marketplace but they had half the store blocked off for some reason.

    thanks GKT!

    north WM was bare again today even
    though they had similar shipments last week.

    Is Shadow Panther any good? or just stand him up and flip his head in beast?

    He’s actually great, identical to Cheetor but they changed it more than enough to feel different

    I considered getting Shadow Panther even though I don't usually pick up any Beast Wars stuff but I was put off by his robot mode head.

    "West Valley" Walmart on 62 had a few Waspinators, Shadow Panthers, and at least one of each BW Reissue (two Primals, I wanna say three Megs, and a couple Cheetors and Rattraps).

    Also there's still a Rodimus there if anyone is still searching for him. A few Grindors, and some BB Thrusts.

    Just here at Taylorsville Target. 8 Saucer Bees if anyone's still looking for him.

    Target app shows him in stock at the South Jordan and West Jordan locations as well.
