    I crashed the sound blaster for $13 at Chantilly Walmart. What to the Dulles landing Walmart after and they were full price but had a ton of prime’s. Checking brickseek it loud like Chantilly is an exception, not the rule.
    Nothing at Chantilly target this morning

    Burke Walmart has a bunch of G1 Soundwave. Also the new SS Leaders (Scavenger and Shockwave) but the boxes are really beat up.
    Burke Target has one lone ER OP but someone opened it. See pic

    I grabbed one of the two OPs, but he has a manufacturing flaw, so I need to get the other one... if it's still there.

    All that was left was a Grapple and two Astrotrains. The Grapple looks sealed but is missing the tie downs and something is loose in the box.

    Grapple doesn't have any tie-downs, does he? Mine didn't. They seemed to have designed the plastic tray to hold the figure pretty securely on its own. Same with Starscream, although he has like 1 tie-down.

    Oh? Are they not doing the tie-downs for the Voyagers anymore? I noticed the Leaders and Deluxes still had them so I assumed the Voyagers did as well

    I was surprised when I opened them, too. Grapple was so firmly embedded in his plastic tray that I decided the quickest and safest way to get him out was to actually cut the tray where his fists were. Hasbro might be trying to use fewer/no ties when possible...? But I guess it's not the kind of technique that works for every figure. Starscream was pretty firmly embedded, too, but if I remember correctly he still had exactly one single tie-down, at his waist. I haven't seen Leader OP in the wild yet, but the other size classes seemed to have the usual number of ties, except the Voyagers.

    This morning my brickseek replacement (Target Inventory Checker | PopFindr) said that Short Pump target had 6 deluxes. I assumed they came in overnight and an employee bought two, that appears to be what happened.

    None of the shelf, an employee brought out one of each. I bought Cliff, WJ, and Trailbreaker, left the base guy (he's on the pegs). If I know other collectors, I would assume there's another base guy and cliffy in the back.

    Happy hunting fellowes!

    Don't think Target Mosaic will ever put out ER Leaders because it's shelves are clogged with Shockwaves.
