    Are there any Voltron '84 limbs around? I got the black lion from Waterbury Target on Saturday.

    How often do you guys go out just for "hunting"? Or do you find stuff while you're doing other errands?

    Both. But I hunt a minimum of 2 a week, and usually do Southington, Bristol, Waterbury, and Torrington.

    Occasionally I get to Milford, or Danbury, but not very often.

    OFF TOPIC:

    Any luck with Classic Voltron limbs? I got a Black Lion at Waterbury Target, and as usual, the limbs came up in stock, but this time the Target employee said " I can't get things from the back. If they're not on the floor, we can't sell them. "

    Hey, man - West Hartford TRU had 2 sets of Voltron limbs today. No black lions, which I assume is why the arms and legs are sitting around unloved and forlorn.

    I finally had some time to check West Hartford TRU for the Voltron limbs. On the way, I stopped at Bristol Walmart. They had a Green and a Yellow, which I bought. I get to TRU and they also only have Green and Yellow, sigh.

    TRU in Waterbury and Manchester appear to be safe from closing. NBC CT says there is a revised list and those stores are not on it.

    Grabbed a RID CF Thermidor and Bludgeon from Waterbury TRU. There was a Twinferno left cause I didn't have enough loot and decisions were made.

    Target has a sale on Transformers this week. No huge savings, but deluxe are $12.99 and leaders are $40.59. I'm not sure about the rest because there were no signs and the scanners were down.

    Grabbed all four 1984 Voltron limbs from Naugatuck Walmart. There was only the set.

    I have yet to see TR Leader Optimus in person yet. He's the only one I need of Wave 1. Has anyone seen him?

    Walmart in Torrington has two POTP Leader Optimus and one Rodimus Unicronus as of about 4pm today. I didn't see any other wave 2.

    I just found them at the Waterbury Walmart on Saturday, but thanks for updating.
