    Two infernos, two grim locks, a leader Prime and black Rodimus currently at the Columbia Target. Had no idea inferno was a thing.

    Nice! I have Inferno being shipped from a friend in Indiana as a trade, but hopefully someone here gets one to enjoy. Did MD Targets ever get PotP wave 2? I don't recall ever seeing them there.

    I saw Elita and Hungurr ONCE. So mad, because I should have gotten them then. Distro in MD has been either terrible, or terribly hit on.

    Anyone still coming across the SS TRU exclusive Thundercracker discounted anywhere at TRU closing sales?

    Has anyone been to the Bel Air TRU this week? If so, how was their TR Grotesque stock? I'm thinking of making the pilgrimage this afternoon...

    At the Gaithersburg TRU for a hot minute they had five. They disappeared the next day.

    As for now with that location? Don't even bother with Transformers. And most of the Marvel Legends stuff is all Nova or Hawkeye.

    Gaithersburg Target had one Childish Landino (Solo Lando Calrissian), but Transformers are languishing in Wave 1 of absolutely nothing. Actually most of the Targets and the one Walmart I've hit up seem to be like this.

    I was at the Hagerstown MD Ollies earlier today and all they had was Triggerhappy, Twinferno, Quake, and Krok

    So in case anyone was interested, I went by TRU Bel Air tonight and there were at least 100 Grotusques on the shelf. Pictured below is just the top half of the display and each of those shelves have figures at least 8 to 10 deep. IMG_4169.JPG

    Wow. That’s a lot. Where in the store were they? I ask, because the Glen Burnie store seems to have given up on having any sense of order.

    They are right in the normal aisle (about 3 or 4 in on the left-hand side). You CAN'T miss them!

    I overheard last night while there that Bel Air is going to be one of the last stores to close (which might be why they are getting stuff). Although there isn't really so much as a Wave 1 Primemaster Transformers-wise in the store besides the 8 billion Grotusques!

    Also, if anyone from the DC Metro area (i.e. less than 30 minutes from DC proper) is making a trip to Bel Air for Grotusques in the next few days, could you PM me? I've sort of become a middle-lady for getting UK friends Grotusques and I ran out of the 10 I bought last night!

    Not anymore! I just came to say they were hitting the area, but I grabbed the last one at the Frederick store. Headswap and hopefully a future Reprolabels kit and I've got a Pyro for my Wreckers.

    As the latest shipment contained 1xGrimlock & 1xInferno.. popping around the Beltway to a few Targets and seeing a shiny new Grimlock sitting there and nothing else really breaks my heart.

    Seems like not more than a year ago I still had faith when something would trickle out in incredibly small numbers that the "real" shipment would eventually hit and I would find every Generation figure I wanted. Now after TR Wave 5 Deluxes and PotP Wave 2 Voyagers, I have lost most of the faith. I still hope to find Inferno in stores but dude.. discouraged. :/

    Saw one Inferno last night at Target in Abingdon. I didn’t get a chance to post the sighting. I ran there to get diapers for my daughter this morning, and he was already gone, so I didn’t even bother posting. There was a leader Optimus and Rodimus Unicronus though.

    Still tons of Grotusques at Bel Air TRU, with a sign asking people not to open them. Seeing as how neither the box (except in tiny print that just says there are 3 figures but does not identify them) nor the display says what is inside, I expect these to sit unless other collectors or a scalper grabs them.

    I found two TR Ramhorns at my local Giant in Rockville. Picked up both. They were tagged as $6.19, but they were in the system, so the I mentioned the MSRP as $4.99 when she asked if I remembered the price.

    I was shocked!

    Are any of these Arcee? How do you tell the difference?

    Also, has anyone been there since Sunday? If so, do they still have some? I'd like to go there and grab one.
