    The Walmart in Mechanicsville had a Netflix Megatron and two Ultra Magnuses last night. Didn't see the endcap display or much else.

    Well, the Netflix ultra Magnus is already on clearance for $35 at most stores like Jetfire last year

    Found a discounted Ultra Magnus at the Forest Hill Walmart. Hard to believe it was $35 when retail is just shy of $60. There was one more on the shelf that looked like it was in good condition. I'm not sure why it was discounted.

    Woodbridge definitely got their pallet but put it out on the shelves. 14 deluxes (no scrapheaps of course ) 12 Hotlinks and Megatrons. Tons of earthrise deluxes and 4 grapples. No starscreams.

    Edit: And of course Fedex misdelivered my Magnus to my office, which I couldn't update since Walmart's ordering system is stupid.... sigh.. time to file a lost package claim.

    Yeah, I grabbed one of the discounted Magnuses yesterday. Seemed too good to pass up.

    In any case, the Netflix stuff has been ubiquitous. What I want to know is, when are they going to release EarthRise wave 2? It’s June, for crying out loud!

    Store resets are typically in August for the "Fall" season, so you may see some stuff trickling out in July, but it will be a few more weeks I'm sure. Target will probably be waiting until then to release the Skywarp/Thundercracker 2-pack, but they may surprise us...

    S. Fredericksburg has a Hotlink and some of all the deluxe Netflix figs on their mass display. I bought the only Scrapface. The Earthrise side of the display still looks untouched. They also had a complete set of the Star Wars ESB Retro Wave and the 40th ESB Black Series Wave.

    I'm in the Roanoke area and I have everything but Magnus and I have been checking the clearance aisle. We won't be getting him or the pallets. Any chance anyone can pick me one up?

    Warrenton Walmart has one Grapple, two Hotlinks, two Scrapfaces, and assorted other Netflix deluxes. No Ultra Magni.

    So the Midloathian Walmart apparently had the Netflix Ultra Magnus for $35. Sad I missed out on that. Sure it was Magnus as the sticker said the original price for the toy was $60.

    Ashland Walmart has Netflix Scrapface, Hotlink, Megatron, and several G1 Astrotrains. I think somebody's stash was uncovered. There was also all 4 Real Ghostbusters, and the McFarlane DC variant blue Batman (at least 6 on a side-cap at the end of the aisle).

    I don't think so.
    *edit* Found the pallet display on the rear end cap right by electronics. It's the Hot Rod + Grimlock wave. Arcee isn't part of that one.

    Back in NoVa for a few weeks. 3 months by myself in my NYC apartment were enough. When you hear voices in your head sober, you gotta change your situation.

    Chantilly/Dulles Walmart had all the Netflix figs save for the voyagers. Picked up one of each. If anyone is able to find a Hotlink relatively soon I'll happily meet you within Fairfax

    EDIT: Found a Hotlink
