    Deadend and sideswipe were harder to find than the rest of them.

    I'm still waiting to see how low the seeker will go on clearance. NOBODY has bought a single one of them at both Walmarts near me. :eek: :rolleyes:

    I don’t think they’re on sale, but there’s like 37 Cloudcovers at my local Walmart so anyone who’s missed out feel free to take them off my hands so they can FINALLY restock

    He’s the only voyager there was in the lineup, at least for now. Dunno, are we getting a wave two? Can’t remember

    Yeah. In hind sight the FOMO I had for Cloudcover was unfounded.
    I really didn't expect him to shelf-warm so bad.

    I remember when I first bought him there was only like 2 left so I thought “dang, got it while I could” now like 6 months later there’s another 8 or so left and there hasn’t been a restock since and I’m just sitting here waiting for Evo wave 4, let alone United wave anything. (Or any recent studio series releases, for that matter)

    These guys are like Velocitron Speedia collection. I hope the Star Seekers don’t shelfwarm as hard as the other Walmart exclusive lines have in the past. But it might happen. I almost have all the Velocitron collection figures. I need to collect the rest of Toxitron (minus Mirage).

    I'm surprised at the mentions these are shelfwarming over your guys end. Cleared out mostly cleanly here in Australia

    Now, the retro reissues on the other hand, those have been unmoving shelfwarmers

    I can't find a Sideswipe for nothing, I'm hoping he eventually turns up on Amazon for a decent price like the Velocitron figures are starting to do.

    My Walmart does actually have a clearance aisle. Pretty sure that’s how I got my kingdom Tigatron way back when. Though I guess not all would have one

    Man, it's nuts to see people talking about Wal-Mart putting these on clearance. I have 4 different ones around a few cities in my part of the state & almost NONE of them even get to have these capsule lines on pegs for very long without them flying off the shelves. I've NEVER seen any of these things survive long enough to even see more than 1 copy of a figure in stock, it'd be impossible for them to end up on clearance in my area.

    I have only seen it happen once a year right after Christmas. If course this year I screwed up and wasn't able to secure $18 & $7, two packs. "It will be there next week " I thought "it will be worth it" I thought.

    Pretty much the only figures you don't see are just Sideswipe and Dead End. Well, around here the deluxes almost all sold. Maybe a handful of Laser Cycle left. Meanwhile Cloud Cover, Toxitron, and G2 Grimlock are shelf warming hard.
