    Display was up in the Bonsak Walmart (its near Roanoke) right in front of the electronics section. Should show up everywhere else within the next couple of days.

    The Walmart in Haymarket now has the G1 Autobot Mini Vehicles (or Minibots if you prefer), in two places. The first place is just inside the left front door which would be if you're facing the store from the parking lot. They are in some red cardboard shippers with some other "stocking stuffer" items. The second place is on peg hooks in the actual toy isle where the rest of the Transformers figures are kept. By the way it seems as if the ones on the peg hooks have straighter cards than the ones I bought the other day from a Bumblebee shipper at another Walmart. I was thinking of buying another set, but maybe I'll just wait to see if these go on clearance. In any case happy hunting!

    Clearbrook Walmart (Roanoke area) - no G1 minibots in a shipper or on the pegs to be seen. Lots of Hot Rods, and one of them was flat out gutted. Someone stole the insert, figure and instructions outright, leaving the empty box tossed on the shelf. Classy. This is the second Hot Rod that I've seen molested at that store - someone else opened one and took the stickers. No other G1.

    Bonsack Walmart (Roanoke area) - G1 minibots still available, and plenty to go around. I snagged one of each, though finding good cards was a bit of a challenge. All G1 figures accounted for, which normally wouldn't be special, but Starscream and Devastator supplies have dried up around here. Had a few of each on the shelf.

    Victory Comics got a bunch of these weird Decoy/M.U.S.C.L.E.-looking things that come with cute stickers.

    The peg wall at Mosaic Target is pretty much denuded. There's still a bunch of stuff on the actual shelf (a ton of movie Soundwaves and at least one Inferno), but it looks like they cleared out the pegs with a big sale or something. I'm not sure what this portends, if anything...

    Captured Prey has the Siege Voyagers in stock. I caved and ordered the two. $30 each, and Priority 2-day shipping (cheapest option available) was $11 and change.

    I've ordered from there several times before and have never had a problem.

    Someone posted this photo on Instagram from their Walmart in Canada. Hopefully we'll get the same. I'll be hitting up a bunch of Walmart stores this weekend.
