    Just a heads up, I bought an ark through Walmart and it came with two left knee pads and was missing one of the shell pieces. I returned it to Madison west Walmart. So if you see it just know it’s missing stuff.

    Madison area Walmart report: Thrust at every single store. Wreck-Gar nowhere. Worst case assortment ever.

    List of Walmart’s not to bother with if you’re looking for Wreck-Gar:

    Waukesha South: 2 Thrust

    Mukwonago: 1 Galvatron (Fixed Shoulders I think) I haven’t seen Thrust here all week, so I might have missed them all, or not hit yet

    Burlington: 3! Thrust, 1 Hot Rod, 1 Scourge

    Lake Geneva: 1 Thrust. Lake Geneva Target has 2-3 Worlds Collide and a bunch of Origins Bee.

    Delavan: 2 Thrust and I finally found and bought Wreck-Gar. That took way too much effort..

    Kossow Rd. Target also had 4 T-Wrecks today too.

    So, most of the “Kingdom Red Alert” search results on eBay are very obviously Siege Red Alert bootlegs with some kind of paint scheme that hybridizes the two.

    Anybody seen the real one at Walgreens? Is it confirmed released in the US yet?

    I wasn't aware of the head issue. Good to know!

    I don’t think I’ve heard of any T-Wrecks actually having the “right” head, so it might be a wait if you’re hoping for a running change. All T-Wrecks I’ve seen have the normal BW Megatron head instead of the “Grimacing” Megatron head he was supposed to use.

    Well, I was googling around about my last show and found this truly disheartening link to this post so here’s some info for all: My name is Tim and I am a certified entertainment earth wholesaler (as well as neca and a few others) who has spent the last five years trying to open up a store in my hometown Watertown only to have everything go wrong and lose about $10,000 trying to start a toy show and open a store when covid killed my hopes. So no you won’t find a store cause I lost everything including my apartment in mcfarland. And lastly a lil history: As I grew up in Watertown and have never been able to find the collectibles I wanted I have to travel to Madison and Milwaukee to find cool things which is why I share constant posts from stores to the Dairycon group so everyone has a fighting chance to find their collectibles, I rarely buy for myself. I wish you all the luck in your collecting.

    Sorry about the tough times you’re going through. I do want to tell you I appreciate all the posts you do in the Dairycon group. Whether it’s letting me know I should head there to grab stuff or letting me know to save time since you already checked.

    If that's the case, I apologize. I saw someone that does toy shows going to every store in the area and jumped to conclusions.

    There is more… than meets the eye.

    And in case you do not read any of the financial books out there: in the last 5 years Target and Walmart have moved more than 50% of their normal store merchandise strictly to the online terminals which is a actually a separate business. Covid just pushed the envelope faster. Example: Walmart.com, while still being Walmart, runs completely separate from the stores including a completely separate sales and even distribution center so yes, there is less in stores making demand higher.
