    Realistically, what answer are you expecting aside from “Walmart”?

    When I lived in Miami, normally you had to go to Lamborghini-Miami to find one. But if I see one in my area of the woods, I will let you know.

    Somebody has a spare they are willing to let go of for a reasonable price, or some random online reseller has somehow has some.
    Actually, I found that there are a few sellers out of China on AliExpress that are selling them for a bit higher than Voyager prices.
    That's why I thought to ask.
    Needless to say they're much more expensive on eBay, but AliExpress is a bit scary to jump into.

    Message 1toy on Facebook to see if they still have them. Last I knew they were selling them for retail plus like $17 shipping from Malaysia.

    Still havent found any if the G2 figures locally, which is surprising honestly. They normally have no problem stocking exclusives here. I wonder if all of the unsold RotB garbage is holding things up.

    Don't ask how, but I ended up with three Miami Swipes.
    There's still some on ebay, if you want to pay over 3 times the retail price.

    Most Walmarts are filled with unsold ROTB stuff and it didn't stop them so I guess it's more the luck of the draw with local distribution.

    I've seen all of these in store now except Sideswipe who I would like to get since the one from Pule had paint damage on the roof. Seems that was a widespread issue though so may be difficult to get one without the damage.

    My Walmart has a bunch of Toxitrons and Grimlock that no one wants...and as much as I love the Leader Grimlock mold I'm not sure if I want this one. Got the G1 colors and SG and not sure if the G2 colors really speak to me. As this point I'll get it if he's on sale but if I miss him then I won't shed any tears.

    From what I've seen Cloudcover is going to linger until Walmart gives him the 1/2 off discount

    If my local Walmarts are any indication, I'll still be seeing flocks of him in 2027. They should've named him Shelfcover with as many of him there are...

    At this point, I think most of the G2 line will end up at a discount retailer (ROSS, Ollie's, TJ Maxx, etc.). Some Walmarts never even carried the line.

    The two closest to me have never got them at all. Not even one case. I've had to travel to other states to see them.

    Very true. My hometown Walmart is plentiful of the Toxitron collection while the Walmart near my college has none. I had to drive to a Walmart about 20-30 minutes away just to find them. And I did find them there. It seems that Sidswipe, Dead End, and Grimlock are hard to find. Both Sideswipe and Dead End are short-packaged making it hard to find them. Not sure how many Grimlocks are in a case. But I haven’t seen him.
