    That'd be me. I've said my peace before and I don't know what else to say. I'll buy what I want if I see it but I don't scalp anything. I've also been trying really hard lately to post anything new I see immediately to help you guys out.

    Incase anyone in the area is still looking for one, the HWY 52 Walmart in Madison got a restock of the SNES Classic. Brickseek showed they had 9, but it looked like 6 or 7 left after I got one tonight.

    The smaller vehicles packed in with the big animals are usually reused in some other set and we don't usually double dip the vehicles so we don't have the Liopleurodon looking thing for example

    Nuts, missed the $5 voyagers. Auburn Walmart only had one PotP Starscream and a couple of full-price TR legends (Kickback and Chase) when I was there earlier.

    Great point.

    Without back reading the entire thread has he ever came in here to tell us that our crappy store had Chaos on Velocitron? or did our store, only one serving the entire region and a Major Defense town just NOT get any of that set.. or rather just not get any of that set that made it to shelves.

    I found a pounce and wingspan tonight.

    Gadsden wm has those classic toybiz style punishers and 1 iron man for $9

    They have a grimlock on clearance isle but it's normal price.

    Voyager Prime and Rodimus were on the main isle.

    I've had those for a while that's series 2

    Anyone know where I might get a Titans Return Devastator for less than an arm and a leg?

    Can you guys stop jumping on Stratonrye? The scalper talk is misguided, imo. Could the fact that Huntsville being the tech hub it is has a higher concentration of collectors than most other areas with similar populations? Its also the only TRU within an almost 100 mile radius (Nashville, Birmingham, Chattanooga, maybe Murfreesboro?).

    I found multiple quotes from him last year posting info about the Velocitron sets, fyi as well. If he buys one for himself first before posting, who cares? We all post what stuff is available at TRU/Walmart/Target after we pick it over as well.

    Thank you. Btw my manager told us that with all the other stores closing in the district that it sure would likely get more stock of exclusives and good stuff soon.

    Sorry to double post but I just saw that we have one of each of the POTPs Leaders on the shelf at the Hsv TRU. I think I'm going to hold off if you guys were looking for them.

    You do have a valid point but the guy works for TRU and has an inside track. Maybe the scalper label was a bit much but it doesn't help me when you posts that he picked it up and out TRU takes months to get restock if they ever do. I did find both leader class POTP figures at TRU this morning as with the Voyager class. To be fair as for the Valocitron set I saw a few of them last year at our TRU. I didn't pick it up because I only wanted Flastclash from the set. I was not interested in the other figures.

    Arab Walmart has $15 TR Megatron, Octane, and Blitzwing. Back wall near Electronics, good luck if you want 'em!! Rodimus is gone, Optimus remains, and Starscream, too. Enjoy!

    Lemme chime in on the Stratonrye talk... If you collected figures, wouldn't you put yourself in a position to get them first if you could? I used to be that guy, I'd buy things right off the pallet where I worked in WA state. The only downside is that he works in one of the only toy stores in the HSV area and it just so happens that said toy store is going through a very rough patch with closings and shipping/supply. Be glad he's around to post for you. There are a lot out there that have no idea about these websites or moms and dads just picking them up for their kids or worse, hawking on eBay cuz they saw it was trending.

    My suggestion to you, Strat is this. If you're the first to buy it, don't post about it. It makes the hyenas jealous.

    Also our TRU is horrible about restocking.TRU has been doing a terrible job with Star Wars Black series.
