Brag or cry about your retail Transformers section

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

Checked the other Walmart tonight, no Leader class there either. They do have PotP Voyagers wave 2 and at full price (I scanned to be sure), I should probably grab those soon since there's no telling if I'll ever see them again.

Oh, and apparently that bottom shelf price tag from the photo above, which was also at this store, for $19-whatever is for TLK deluxe.

The only Wave 2 stuff I've seen at my Targets is a single Battleslash (which I bought) and 2 or 3 Rippersnappers (one of which I bought). NONE of the other Wave 2 Deluxes or Legends, no Wave 2 Voyagers, Prime Masters, or Leaders. At most of them the Wave 1 stuff is heavily picked over except for Skullgrin/Maximo, and Legends Skrapnel

That's right, Combiner Wars Skywarp. From two lines ago. Still at full price.

Checked the Augusta Walmart today hoping for the Wave 2 Prime Masters, but no luck there (or at Target for that matter). Nope, instead I was greeted by this:

20180616_165013.jpg


A fresh case of Wave 1 Legends, a fresh case of Wave 1 Prime Masters, and three cases of Wave 1 Voyagers (and a lone Elita-1 crammed in the back).

Wait, did I say three cases of Wave 1 Voyagers? I meant six.

20180616_165215.jpg


Yep, they had so many they stuck another three cases worth on the top shelf. That's what I get for complaining about not seeing Grimlock since February, guess I wont be seeing Inferno any time soon.

This Target really didn't know what it wanted to stock:

Image

Studio Series Starscream alongside his PotP self, TLK and SS leaders side by side (first time I've seen either), first time I've seen RiD team combiners at Target, some newer crash combiner, a metals series TLK Optimus, TLK Berserker alongside SS Crowbar, it was craziness.

That's basically what my Target looked like yesterday, down to the lone RU, but no PotP Starscream or SS Leaders.

My Walmart looked like a warzone today. BUT it had an awesome selection regardless. POTP Wave 2 voyagers and deluxes were there a plenty!

Thats why you should always put the highest price you are willing to pay early. Once I learned that trick it really changed teh way I bid and feel about it. I hve never ever had a regret since.

My Wal-Mart in Spokane got a TON of new figures in...all Voyagers, so now I'm drowning in PotP Infernos, PotP Elita-1s, SS Primes, and SS Starscreams. Inferno is going to be a nightmare to clear off shelves. :-(

NOT ONE POST WAVE ONE DELUXE OR PRIME MASTER :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

Surprisingly full Transformers selection at Kmart today, this is while I was holding SS Blackout which was previously in front of TLK Leader Megatron.

20180626_160657.jpg


And yeah, those TR Soundwaves just aren't selling, wish they'd put them on clearance. There's an RID Bludgeon and Thermidor behind that RID Prime, don't tell anyone, I might go back for them if there's a sale. :-$

And for Will, I'm still finding these:

Meanwhile Walmart restocked another case of Wave 1 Prime Masters. :roll:

Well that shows how either dumb or unhelpful my Wal-Mart is. So three days ago, I go in, and they literally have dozens of Elita 1s, Grimlocks, and Infernos. Like, they had bulk in Voyager class figures that were on their stocking cart. I counted at least 20 boxes of Wave 2 and Wave 3 figures.

I passed on Inferno, but then I was looking at some pics and decided to pick him up, so two days later (yesterday), I go back in. No Inferno on display or in their stock boxes. I ask them to check if they have them in their stock room, thinking, well duh they can't have dozens of figures out, they don't have the shelf space.

The guy literally scanned their code, as they do, and said they didn't have anything else in stock. I brought up the fact that I'd seen dozens of figures here less than 72 hours ago and he just shrugged and said I don't know then.

This is literally why I want to try to work in a toy department for a summer job, nobody cares about customers, adults or kids.

Dude the Transformers retail situation around me is a dirt-garbage joke. Target and Walmart DGAF about keeping stock, they just slap crap on a shelf and never look back. Pretty sure they mark the wrong items for clearance when new waves of product come in with the same SKUs too. Wave ONE of Power of the Primes JUST came out at my Target a month ago. Wave one toys are still on the pegs, meanwhile a handful of wave twos were on the shelves for a week before they were all gone, never to return. The Walmarts around are even worse, they generally just have 2 pegs of shelfwarmers, a ton of tiny guys, and dust. There is literally no store near my home that has a good selection of Transformers.

I... don't have one. Toys R Us closed near me and the next toy shop is literally 1\10th of the size and has about 2 foot of Transformers shelf space - even then I'm lucky if I even see anything that isn't dead-weight stock from 2 years ago.

I'm lucky if I even see a Transformer in Tesco or Sainsburys that isn't one of those 1-step Movieverse figures, too...
