    As of 6am this morning, the Walmart in Aberdeen has a fresh, brand new case of Titans Return Wave 3 Deluxes (Hot Rod, Breakaway, Twinferno, Triggerhappy) in the main aisle way near the toy section. (the case was cut open by me and is sitting on one of the pallets)

    They also have a single TR Scourge and Blurr as well as two each of TR Voyager Megatron and Optimus Prime.

    There is a voyager Optimus Prime with Diac, as well as a voyager Megatron with Doomshot in the Glen Burnie Wal-Mart. Yesterday I nabbed the last Bumblebee from Toys R Us. And at Target is nothing besides wave 3 Titan Masters. I already got what I needed.

    Sixshot is gone from Target. I figured he would be when we posted it. My nephew is having his birthday and my mother was looking for a gift so I thought he would like Sixshot so she checked today but he was gone. If anyone spots him elsewhere, please let me know.

    Last place I saw one was in the Wal-Mart on Jumpers Hole road. There was two of them.

    Is this a general problem with the mold? Mucho disappointing if that's the case. I've been jonesing for a mass retail Sixshot for about 29 years now.

    I guess I still have Hexatron...

    Yeah, the knees are pinned and not ratcheted. On top of that they bend forward 90 degrees with no stoppage (due to transformation).

    Mine is totally fine in the right poses but not exactly the most stable. Stands straight up and down just fine.

    I have two Sixshots and neither has floppy legs/knees.

    Judging by the responses in the feedback thread, It doesn't appear to be a chronic problem at all.

    Unfortunately it looks like amd098 got a lemon.

    Columbia Toys R Us has a mix of wave 2 and 3 deluxes. Columbia Target has Wave 3 deluxes and titan masters. Target also had Combiner Wars Cyclonus, for some reason.

    Late posting my hunt from yesterday, but:

    Glen Burnie Target on Ritchie had 2 Hotrods, 2 Breakaways (bought one), 2 Triggerhappy and 2 Twinfernos. Also had the full Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends

    ToysRUs was a wasteland

    Nothing at the Quarantine Rd Walmart

    Veterans Hwy Target had the same as the Glen Burnie Target.

    Side Note: if i catch who is stealing Build A Figure parts from the Marvel Legends in Glen Burnie, they're going to need new hands when I'm done with them.

    I saw some guy eyeing the figures today. Kinda a heavy set guy. He was wearing a grey hoodie and white jeans. When i went thru the isle after him, I saw pieces missing. I let an employee know about what I saw, and they are watching out for him.

    That's been an issue in the Columbia area too. Both outright theft and falsely packed returns. It's honestly the biggest reason I don't really collect marvel legends and universe actively. Between the distribution, scalpers, and shady dealings, there's no point to my trying.

    Yea I too have run into this unfortunate situation in my area around germantown/gaithersburg build a figure pieces will be swapped out with fodder pieces there were several times I saw the whole figure and baf part were entirely switched out nothing matched with the packaging so it was obvious if people took the time to look at what returns they taking it is stressful and makes collecting these things more challenging

    I saw them at the Westminster Target and in my town in PA. They're out there.
