Since the sightings form won't work for my local Wal-Mart...I'll just post my findings here...

Bumblebee ('77) VS. Barricade ("First Encounter") 2-Pack x 18
(Yes, you read that correctly. EIGHT-FRIGGIN'-TEEN!)

F.A.B.s:

Barricade x2
Blackout x2
Bumblebee x2
Frenzy x2
Megatron x2
Optimus Prime x2

T.E.C.H.s:

Digital Dagger x1
Flash Bang x1
Quick Bow x1
Tight Shot x1

I'm impressed by the F.A.B.s
The T.E.C.H.s...not so much. Especially at $12.88 a piece.

Oh my. I'm so sorry. >_< I'm an idiot.

Hermitage PA, near the Ohio border, about 60 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Sorry...

This has given me a chance to update though...

Bumblebee ('77) VS. Barricade ("First Encounter") 2-Pack x 1 (Yes, 17 of them sold! This one hasn't because the box is battered really bad and the figures are slightly contorted, but neither one is broken...so it'll sell.)

F.A.B.s:

Barricade x2
Blackout x1
Bumblebee x0
Frenzy x2
Megatron x2
Optimus Prime x0

Optimus and Bumblebee are the clear winners of this line...

T.E.C.H.s:

Digital Dagger x1
Flash Bang x1
Quick Bow x1
Tight Shot x1

None sold, none even moved from the peg.

Notes: Voyager Class Optimus Prime x4, Voyager Class Megatron x4, two full cases of Movie Robot Heroes. (unknown what the number of figures is, don't know what the assortment's amount is, inside the cases.)

Slowly starting to restock and fill the shelves people. Looks like the drought (while not completely over) is starting to show signs of coming to an end finally.

At least one case of G1 Starscream and G1 Jazz.

This was at the Target at Mt Nebo point, which is about 10 miles north of Pittsburgh. There are two other Targets within about 5 miles of this one, and several others that are not a very long drive from there. I'd check them all.

Oh and I got them to bring them to me from the stock room, so they may not be on the shelves yet.

8/28
Walmart on Nazareth Pike/Rt 191 in Bethlehem, PA
1 Voyager Megs
3 Voyager Rescue Ratchet (bought one, so two left)

Bunch of Real Gear stuff. I don't really care about that stuff, so I wasn't looking too hard. I was happy to scoop up the G1 repaint of Ratchet. Soooo much better than the neon green one!

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
Date: 09/26/07
Time: 07:16 PM
Store(s): Wal-Mart Supercenter
City: Greenville
State/Province: PA
Country: USA

Notes:

A slew of Deluxe Class, Fast Action Battlers and Real Gear figures in stock right now.

Deluxe Class:
Bonecrusher x2
Brawl x1
Dreadwing x2
Dropkick x6
Scorponok x2
Swindle x2

NOTE: Concept Camaro Bumblebee, Final Battle Jazz, Longarm and Payload all sold out, but they had been there.

F.A.B.s:
Barricade x2
Concept Camaro Bumblebee x2
Megatron x1

NOTE: Blackout, Optimus Prime all sold out.

Real Gear:
High Score 100 x2

NOTE: All the figures remain, except for one High Score 100, which I bought.

Looks like the drought might just be over. The restock appears to be on it's way. (If Greenville's getting new stock, everyone will soon. Greenville's one of the worst for restocks. No joke.)

The Walgreens on 9th and Market in Philadelphia is stocked up with knock-off G1 combiner sets. They have Devastator (in Green and Purple!), Bruticus (lost of tan and green), Superion (mostly white) and Defensor (in mostly red and white).
I would imagine that the whole chain has them, but this is the only one I've been to lately.
AND they're three for twelve bucks!

That's not bad actually!

Too bad it's not the multicolored bootleg of Devastator that Walgreens used to carry years ago. The quality is better, and you get every single accessory. *sighs*

You get most of them! I think that one or two of the individual guns are missing or wrong, but you do get two drill missiles, Mixmaster's double missile. all of Devastator's gestalt kibble and his gun.
I have to warn you though, The actual quality is pretty low. They're hardly worth looking at in individual robot mode.
The manager was really annoyed that he had to get the ladder to get the sets down off of the top of a browner for me. He probably didn't expect to have to deal with that until Christmas season.

KO Gesalts at Walgreens

Postby prowl13f » Sat Oct 27, 2007 1:49 pm

DON'T BUY THESE! They are made of the lowest quality plastic and break easily. But if you want a cheap set of Combiners you can't beat it. The Wal-greens on Center Ave in Pittsburgh has a lot of these (Constructicons, Aerialbots, Combaticons, Protectobots)
