    Madison East Wal Mart has a few of the Netflix wave 2 deluxes. Just picked up a Bumblebee and Elita.

    Just picked up the last Bumblebee and one of the Elita's at the Madison East Wal-Mart. I think there was one more Elita, a few Wheeljacks, an Impactor, and a Red Alert when I left about 15 minutes ago.

    Just grabbed a Bumblebee at Madison West Walmart.

    Left: 1x Bumblebee, 2x Elita, 2x Wheeljack, 1x Impactor.

    At Baraboo Walmart: bought one Elita, left behind nothing but an Impactor.

    At the Dells Walmart: nothing.

    Make that 0x Bee and 1x Elita, just picked them up! Ran out my door when I saw this post lol. There’s a Red Alert left as well, he was up above on the top of the shelf.

    Monona Walmart has no new Netflix stuff. First time I’ve ever seen a Doubledealer in the wild, though.

    Managed to snag cyberverse warrior gnaw at target in Marshfield. Also, had in my hand for 10 minutes runabout.....until check out. Street date. I don't blame them. I gave the dpci, and he was pulled from in back. I just hope the young man who helped out doesn't get in trouble for bringing out a street dated item.

    They mailed my web preorder yesterday. Tracking says arriving on Thursday.

    Target’s “street dates” on Transformers are a phony backward farce that needs to change. They take expected dates or planned stocking dates, and they enforce them as street dates even though there’s no such thing. They turn down sales for no actual reason.

    Be it that or a legit thing, I wasn't going to raise a fuss. But I do have a line on another store, so who knows. Thanks for the input though. :)

    Just snagged Elita-1 and Bumblebee from Neenah's Walmart as they stocked them. I left 2 of Wheeljack and Red Alert, and one Elita-1 and Impactor. Looks like Impactor and Bumblebee were shortpacked in the case of 8 so I unfortunately got the only Bee.

    I get denied on so many items from them. I got denied a Runabout on Friday. I don't mind waiting but it's just a hassle going to checkout and not being able to. They did let me get a Marvel Rogue and Storm early though so that's cool.

    Bumblebee and Soundwave are showing up in stores when my preorders on walmart.com are showing backordered for both.

    17 years ago Phil Bond had a bad experience preordering Mario Kart Double Dash from Walmart and its kind of amazing that nothing has changed. They'll take your money, sell it to someone else, and leave you waiting.

    Well I saw everything this morning lol.

    West Target pulled a Runabout from the back for me and I was able to purchase. Got Marvel Legend Rogue,Gambit,and Storm.

    And Fitchburg had 3 Black Series Mandalorian with the child figures but some guy was already looking at them and on the phone.

    No sign of Thrust though.

    I'm trying to remember this, but I can't put my finger on it. Did they just sell all their in-store stock as though there were no preorders at all, like the Seinfeld scene with the car reservation?

    Scored Runabout at the target in the Wausau area today. And a shout out to the store clerk, Destiny. She is always very cheerful and helpful. So, my fellow collectors, if you are ever toy hunting in Wausau target, ask if Destiny is working.
