I don't know what the deal is with the Wal-Mart Super Centers in Lexington and Thomasville, but neither place is ordering Transformers: ROTF Toys. The Lexington store is the worst as they have a total of 12 pegs for Deluxe figures and right now there is only one figure on each peg and every one of them is Jolt. The shelf for Voyager Class figures isn't any better. There's enough room on the shelf for a total of approximately 12 to 18 figures and there's only 6 and all of them are Stratosphere. It's been like this for at least two months while the Deluxes have been on Roll-Back to $10.00 and the Voyagers have been on Roll-Back for $20.00. Of course, the pegs with the Scouts are bursting at the seams, but it's not of any of the most recently released Waves. The Lexington store did finally get in probably one box of Legends and I was finally able to purchase Wheelie, but no luck with Stealth Bumblebee. The Legends pegs look sad too, all 8 pegs with maybe two Legend figures to each peg. I've even left Post-It notes on the shelves and pegs on numerous occasions stating "Is anyone ordering this item?" or "Please order more!" If they want my money, they should get the merchandise in, right?
The Thomasville location isn't doing much better either. However, their 12 pegs for Deluxe figures are full as well as the back endcap, also on Roll-Back for $10.00. The shelf for the Voyager Class figures had about 8 figures and there was a even mix of Stratospheres, Megatrons, Ratchets, and one Bludgeon. During several trips in the past I was able to get the most recently released Scouts and Legends in this store, but that was about it.
But the silver lining to this gray cloud is that I hit the Salisbury Wal-Mart Super Center last week and I was able to find Deluxe Ratchet, Deluxe Brawn, and Voyager Mindwipe. They have the Voyagers on Roll-Back for $19.97 and the Deluxes on Roll-Back for $9.00. Sweet! However, no sign of Voyager Defender Optimus Prime, Deluxe Lockdown, Deluxe EVAC, Deluxe Rampage (Red), or Deluxe Strike Mission Sideswipe. Now if this store can get the merchandise into their store, how come the Thomasville and Lexington locations can not?
