    Reston Target is undergoing a big renovation. Toy section is now in the center-rear part of the store. Nothing new in the way of TFs, but there's a healthy amount of them.

    Siege Leaders are showing in stock on BrickSeek at Burke (4), Dulles Landing (4), and Sterling (2) Walmart’s.

    Stopped by Burke Walmart and there is 2 of each Siege Leader on the shelf.

    Which SKU are you using to check them? Target has not been working and I haven’t been able to confirm the Walmart SKUs

    The SKU says it is for Ultra Magnus, but it covers the stock count for both Ultra Magnus/Shockwave. Haven’t seen a SKU that works for Target stock though.

    SKU: 224626525
    Title: Transformers-hasbro Tra Gen Wfc Leader Ultra Magnus

    I stopped by the Dulles Landing Walmart around 9:30 this morning when I was checking the TJ Maxx and Ross, and they had no leaders. They were stocking the toy aisles but I didn't see a TF box on the stock carts.

    There were 0 TF at TJ and Ross.

    Burke Walmart had a Shockwave and what looked to be a returned Ultra Magnus.
    Burke Target had a Siege Prime and Megatron.
    The Walmart off of 29 in Fairfax had a leader Ultra Magnus... I can't tell if it was returned or not. If it was it was a pretty good return. It looked like it had all of its bands in place.
    Chantilly Marshalls didn't have anything of note.

    Was wondering how one of the pair of the leader’s heads were turned in odd directions in lieu of pointed straight out. I had thought someone at the factory was having some fun:) 

    Didn’t think to look and see if bands were missing for securing the figure in the package.

    I've been noticing stuff like that a lot lately. At a few stores. Meticulously repacked figures. Figures that are pretty much perfect. I think it's just a perfectionist fan that can't deal with a little scratch or paint splotch on their figure.

    I suspect this is just one guy. I've seen the same similar tape being used at multiple stores. They cut the tape in a specific way too.

    Picked up the lone Bumblebee 3 pack at the Marshall's in Leesburg this afternoon. Also grabbed the lone Overlord from the same location and is available if someone needs it. If no one wants it I will either return it or donate it to charity.

    Hey, please donate it. It's super cheap for you. A kid is going to love that thing.

    Oh, I forgot to mention, there was a single Bumblebee 3 pack in Marshalls at Potomac Mills mall if anyone is looking -- at least when I was there last night.

    That's weird. There are now TWO sideswipes at that store and neither look like repacks. I can't tell if repackers are just getting better at repacking or if they're just more figures pulled out from their backroom. Does walmart have a backroom like Target?
