    The Mechanicsville Walmart had a WFC Seige Jetfire around 10pm. The box is somewhat banged up but the toy should be fine. There were no G1 reissues at all.

    No, much more likely the box was under other stuff on the pallet and just got squished

    You are probably right. Box was more than likely crushed. I have come across dog-eared SW Vintage Series figures at this location though.

    There were two Rainmaker sets at the Falls Church Target (Rt. 50). I took one. I’m still in the store, so 9:38am.

    No, I haven't seen jetfire in the area (southside 757 in general) yet, or even tags for him for that matter. Some of the walmarts in the area are downsizing thier TF sections and won't be stocking him, so I was told.

    Ha... downsizing. It’s hard to downsize from two pegs wide on a single wall :)

    Make sure you check the whole aisle. In some Walmarts, Jetfire is stocked 6-8 feet away from the TF section, on the bottom shelf. And given that the figure is packeged in a non-window box, it’s easy to miss down there.

    Just got back from Fair Lakes Target.
    There was a bunch of new Cyberverse stuff.
    They had the skybyte figure and the cheetor figure.
    The also had a bumblebee figure that looked like a train attached to it.

    Nothing much past that.

    I also went to Dulles Landing Walmart.
    They had a single Siege Jetfire and a few of the siege wave 2 figures

    They also had a bunch of Marvel legends stuff. The nightcrawler wave and the classic wave.

    I haven't been in that store in a long while, so the stuff being moved over an aisle threw me.

    The one with the battleship that turns into armor? Or a weirder/different one?

    Oh, nice. I might grab one of those Dropkicks if any are still there after work...

    Brickseek is pretty useless to know what is on the shelf at these walmarts unfortunately...

    There were two figures, one was a battleship that looked like head armor. The other was some weird looking thing that was bigger. Im going to start taking pics of these toys as I am totally unfamiliar with the Cyberverse stuff.

    The Walmart app is much better for finding items. Brickseek isn't as reliable as it once was. In my opinion anyway..
