    Fair Lakes Walmart has one of the big aisle displays with a BB movie toys and throw blankets and stuff, also a bunch of SS. The only G1 minibots left were about 5 Tailgates and 1 BB. There were also about 4 Botbots in the stocking stuffers, but I grabbed 3 of them (the one still there has serial #1 on written on it). EDIT: As can be seen in the pic, they had a TON of the Cyberverse Optimus with trailer.

    EDIT 2: Fair Lakes Target has 1 OpOp.

    There's 4 Walmarts in the area, and if you're looking for the G1 minibots, I've seen them at 2 of them in the last few days (Challenger Ave (Bonsack area), and Clearbrook (south Roanoke). They may be at the other locations (Salem and Valley View Mall, but I haven't been to either lately). If you're looking for all G1 reissues, the Bonsack one is where you'll want to go - it's the only place I've seen Starscream and Devastator recently, as they've disappeared from the other locations. Hot Rods are plentiful everywhere, though the Valley View Mall location has had several of the corrected second run that is oriented in the box correctly.

    Ollies hasn't had much, but if you're looking for Overlords, you're in luck (2 Ollies - one in the Valley View Mall area and one in Salem).

    Target had Siege, but I believe it's come and gone...I saw some of the smaller ones there, but it's been a while and managed to snag all of mine on HTS when they had their 20% off deal and got deluxes for $8 each.

    If you're looking for some vintage/older items, check out The Basement Toys & Comics on Williamson Road. They've got a ton of stuff - not just TFs, but GI Joe, Star Wars, Marvel Legends, comics, and all sorts of stuff. They even have some third party / import items from time to time. You can check out their Facebook page for a sample of what they have.

    Yeah. Usually I don’t bother ordering wave 1 or 2 stuff online but I’m kinda worried about siege now.

    Hello Everyone! I've been lurking on this site for a bit and decided that I should give back a little since the sightings page has helped me in the past. :) 
    Yesterday I drove from Arlington down 29 to Danville and hit a few places searching for Siege figures. It was pretty much a wasteland.

    Walmart: Ruckersville
    -- One or two reissue SS
    -- One Studio Series SS, a couple of Dredbots, one Dropkick
    -- A number of PotP Sinnertwin, Blot, and Cutthroat
    -- Mid-isle stocking stuffer box of all the PotP legends except for Tailgate

    Zero Deluxe or Voyager Siege figures and I did not see any reissue minibots

    Target: Charlottesville
    -- One Studio Series SS
    -- A number of PotP Sinnertwin and Cutthroat, Jazz
    -- All the Siege Battlemasters
    -- Siege Race and Battle Patrol Micromasters

    Zero Deluxe or Voyager Siege figures

    Target: Lynchburg
    -- A number of PotP Sinnertwin and Cutthroat
    -- All the Siege Battlemasters
    -- Siege Race Patrol Micromasters
    -- PotP Octopunch, Bombburst, Bludgeon

    Zero Deluxe or Voyager Siege figures

    Target: Danville
    -- Two PotP Sinnertwin
    -- Twin PotP Grimlock
    -- Siege Battlemaster Firedrive
    -- PotP Octopunch, Bombburst, Skullgrin

    Zero Deluxe or Voyager Siege figures

    Walmart: Danville
    -- 4 reissue Hot Rod
    -- One PotP Sinnertwin, One Cutthroat
    -- Mid-isle stocking stuffer box of PotP legends including Slash, Cindersaur, Beachcomber, Skrapnel
    -- Bumblebee display set up in the electronics section with all the reissue minibots

    I know I missed a few Studio Series figures (as I'm generally not that interested in them and don't pay much attention to them) and there was a Rodimus Unicronus at one of the first two Targets. However the important thing to take is that outside of the Battle- and Micro-Masters, there was not a single Siege figure in the bunch.

    I hope this help you all in your hunting!:thumb

    G1 Minibots at the Short Pump Walmart, on pegs in the actual Transformers section (not in a separate display).

    A pair of OpOps still linger at Short Pump Target.

    One of the KSI Sentry thingies at the Parham Walmart.

    I assumed you meant the Walmart at 900 Walmart Way based off the proximity to the mentioned Target. The Minibots aren't located in the normal Transformers shelfspace at this store. Instead they are in a hanging display near an endcap. I missed them while searching and had to ask a stocker.
