Abandon all hope there. I fully believe there to be a speculator that works on premises.
Got the lone galaxy upgrade Optimus Prime that was at Chesapeake sq Walmart today
Anyone seen the Marvel Endgame figures around Va Beach? Still need Ronin and Maw
I was at the Independence / Va Beach Blvd walmart yesterday. I was talking to the stocker there he said they just got done doing the "reset". Which means they just removed stuff they didn't carry anymore like, Funco Mystery figures (FNAF, Avengers, ect) Also the little 1" figures like He-Man and Harry Potter and things like that and then compressed everything else but, most notably they removed the Transformers .
Right now, they have the G1 Optimus Prime, 1x Soundwave, 1x Prowl, a couple of bubblegum figures.
The Siege figures they do have DO NOT have a spot to hang, they were on the top shelf.
The G1 Optimus Primes are still in the same spot but they no longer have price tags on the shelf and are now in the middle of Pokemon figures.
The bubblegum (cheap, generic figures) are still on the bottom shelf but, are now mixed in with the Marvel legends roll play stuff.
This means, there are absolutely no spots on their shelves for any Transformers.
The guy said they are no longer carrying Transformers unless something changes but, since NO ONE officially works in toys, they have no official manager so no one really knows if they will be coming back as of right now but he is just a stocker so don't take his word for it.
Not sure how true this is, I just figured I would let ya'll know what I came across.
Did the Studio Series G1-style Prime already come and go? I haven't seen it anywhere in NOVA.
You mean the Bumblebee movie version (SS-38, I think)? I had seen a few of them around, like one per store. But ever since I actually decided I wanted to get one a couple weeks ago, I haven't been seeing them anywhere.
Target in Massaponax got in a Bumblebee Movie Prime, but nothing else mentioning. The Walmart is doing inventory, so they didn't get anything new. They do still have a lot of G1 Warpath, Swerve, Gears, and Bumblebee.
Reston Target has Jubilee, Weapon X and... now I can't remember. Forge, I think. This was around 1ish PM today.
Leesburg Target had a single Forge
Fairfax Walmart had a single SixGun.
Sterling Walmart still has a single leader Prime and two Shockwaves.
Fair Lakes Game Stop had the majority of the Calibak wave.
Skyline Target has 2 each of the Siege Rescue Patrol and Spy Patrol Micromaster sets. Also, a Starscream and a Soundwave.
Has anyone seen Overlord on Main Street TJ Max, or Ross in Turnpike?
Lynnhaven Princess Anne Walmart:
SS Scrapmetal x 1(it's a return, buyer beware)
SS Cogman x 2
G1 Prime reissue x 3
SIEGE wave 1 battlemasters and Micromasters
SIEGE Voyager Optimus x 2
SIEGE Megatron x 1
SIEGE Shockwave x 1
SIEGE wave 2 deluxes x a lot
So I was at the Gamestop in the West Chester Commons off of Midloathian and damn did I find somethings. They have a Soul of Chogokin Dragon Zord/Dragon Caesar for $200, the retro repaint of SS bug Bumblebee that came with the two G1 cassettes for about $70, and a Legendary Defender Voltron box set for I think around $100 can't remember.

Really? Damn more amazed I found it there then.
only place ive ever seen it sold at was bbts
Voltron Legendary Defender Hyper-Phase Gift Set SDCC 2018 Exclusive
Hey guys! I'm BACK!
Though I'm not sure who's still here from when I lived in NoVA before, up until about 5 years ago I posted all the time and organized the NoVA meet ups. We moved to Seattle 5 years ago and just moved back (but to RVA) a few weeks back. So I'll be following the thread and posting often again. I don't see any familiar names in the last couple of pages, so maybe they've all moved on! Anywho. Glad to be back!
For sightings: if anyone local hasn't found Warpath yet, the Walmart on Sheila Lane has a few as of yesterday morning.
The group up in NoVA about 10 deep now on a constant basis, I think.
Separate names with a comma.
