    Saw that W3 has started to be spotted in the US. Wife and I went to the two Puyallup/South Hill Targets, saw a couple Huffer and Airrazor but that's about it.

    Then again, we're usually among the last to see stuff :|

    Bonney Lake Walmart restocked some of the Netflix line if anyone needs some sparkless bots or deseeus drones for army building

    Like I've said before sometimes it pays to live out on the edge of nothing

    I lived in Sumner for 11 years, I remember when that WalMart first showed up and Shari's wasn't Denny's.

    Last time I was up there I didn't recognize the place at all. Since when did Bonney Lake need a Costco?!

    We hardly see anything here in South Hill. The mall Target and nearby Walmart -never- restock.

    And both Puyallup and Bonney Lake have Costcos. The areas boomed a fair bit in recent history.

    There are two of the SS '86 Hotrods at the Tumwater Fred Meyer's. Get 'em before the scalpers do.

    Anyone have a though as to why Gamestop is saying Kingdom wave 3 deluxes will ship out on the 18th, when everywhere else is pointing to July or September (depending)? Getting really tempted, because Puyallup is almost always desolate for toys.

    I think they've actually gotten stuff early on several occasions, although I don't know if that's due to a deal with Hasbro or something unique to their distribution system. Or maybe this time it's just wishful thinking on their end.

    Hmm. It's definitely tempting with how the stores have been running, if they're on the level. South Hill Target hardly re-stocks as is, and when they do its' cleared almost immediately. Though I have found a couple threads saying that stuff done from their website usually ends up with problems.

    My MO has been to pre-order on Amazon and cancel if I find it in the wild. They tend to ship a touch late usually, so it works out. Didn't have any issues with exclusives, either. For me, at least, Amazon has been fine. I've ordered from Gamestop a couple times, and had no issues too, but usually miss their pre-order windows.

    In store has been a total shit show. Mostly a waste of time vs. buy it now (OR NEVER SEE IT AGAIN!) The Lynnwood Target is so bad, consistently. The Walmart around the corner sucks terribly as well. I'd be surprised if 15 Transformers are stocked between both right now.

    When our car was broken, I watched ER thrust go in and out of stock at the Lynnwood Target on the bus home from work. Ended up taking a GD uber to everett for the only one I ever saw. That's how it's been.

    Not really news, but Netflix Chromia quietly restocked on Walmart.com. I'm hoping spoiler NP comes back, I want an extra...

    Haven't seen any of Wave 3 just yet. THough I've only checked South Hill Target/Walmart, haven't had a chance to branch out. I'll try to keep eyes out for everybody.

    Popped by the Federal Way Target, they have a single Kingdom Vertebreak. Nothing new yet.

    I'm looking for Rhinox, Wingfinger, Scorponok, and Soundwave myself.

    Thanks for the heads up. After reading your post I decided to check the Target in North Spokane and picked up a Galvatron that wasn’t there when I looked yesterday
