    Walmart tends to stock once and then not restock. For these they got some stock initially then later got a big cardboard display, then some stores got additional voyagers this week.

    There's a chance your Walmart will get the voyagers in again in the next few days, if you didn't see leftover Megatrons, but I doubt they'l get the deluxes again unless there's a major restock.

    Though, if you didn't see the card board display you might want to go back and look around for it, it may or may not be near the toy section.

    When they actually stock its usually overnight, so going early is best, though with Covid that is true for anything, need TP? go early, need hand sanatizer? go early. Need restocked toys? Go early.

    Mmm, I looked around the toys area, but did not see the cardboard display. If not in the toys area, where would it probably be?

    There's a chance that they took it down or never set it up and just put the toy right on the shelf.

    If I were a wealthy man I would buy up all the Netflix Transformers and mail then to anyone on TFW that wanted them. Alas I am poor.

    Wasn't Walmart supposed to be sending out an e-mail explaining that online preorders got delayed till July 3rd or am I imagining things? I feel like that e-mail should've come in by now.

    What smitty said might be true, or they could have literally put it anywhere else in the store. Around me they're all either in toys or near electronics, but in the past I've seen similar displays in weird places like garden, office stuff, etc. It'll be in the middle of the large aisle though, not on an endcap. Easy to see if you walk the store

    Thanks for the help y'all! I'll try to be more thorough in checking for the display next time I visit that Walmart.

    They did, and I got that email, but I also remember hearing from some in here that their order still got cancelled after that.

    I've seen it in the middle of the main aisle in some stores and on an endcap in others.

    Ooh I’m worried now, didn’t get the email and I do remember someone saying they contacted Walmart and their order ended up not actually being fully received or something. Hope I’m still in the clear.

    I'm currently waiting on preorders for everything but Magnus, which was delivered back in May. Everything else is in that "delayed" status, but I did a live chat with Walmart and said they should be shipping today despite me also not getting the email about the new date.

    TLDR: Walmart preorders are garbage and I'm fully expecting to just have to find the rest of the stuff myself, lol.

    Walmart.com sending out UM was not surprising due to many b&m stores not carrying Leader class and the suspected mass cancellations resulting in surplus stock. The b&m stores unloaded their stock by discounting down to $35.

    With other releases, Walmart.com would predictably let you order online for any figure, typically a few weeks after they start showing up on shelves. The non-Leader Netflix figures have been a total disaster on Walmart.com. The b&m stores were already getting shipped restocks, which makes ordering online even more ridiculous.

    Did the same thing last night and the rep said they hope to see them ship today, despite no email notifications and the rep I spoke to back on the 17th telling me they'd arrive by the 3rd, not ship on the 3rd.

    The one consistent thing with this botched release is the Walmart reps seem just as baffled as customers to what the heck is going on.

    I think the issue many people are having is that they preordered from Walmart.com, and aside from Ultra Magnus, it would seem almost nobody has gotten any other part of their order shipped, likely due to significant inventory mismanagement where items are repeatedly sent to brick and mortar stores, and not fulfillment warehouses.

    There's 2, maybe 3, that people want the most. I don't need them, but you would want to look for these:

    Voyager: Hotlink

    Deluxe: Scrapface

    This is stretching it, but a lot of people ONLY want Leader Ultra Magnus if he's $35. I personally would not pay $60 for him or even the regular leader price of $50. $35 was borderline, and even then, only because he came with a special edition Rung.
