    Does anyone know if Toys'R'Us will be putting out a box set of the Classic Voltron, like they did for Legendary Voltron? Because the Legendary set was only $99, where as buying them individually the total was $110-120.

    i snagged a Mega Construx Teela from the TRU in Lake Mary -- they've got tons of series two minifigures. they also had all the new PotP figures other than the leaders.

    now i am looking for a little assistance. a coworker's son is just crazy about Five Nights at Freddy's and they've been searching for the Walgreens exclusive Lolbit action figure. admittedly, i know almost nothing about that toyline but i've been keeping my eye out. if any of you spot this Lolbit thing anywhere in Central Florida, please let me know!

    has anybody ordered anything from tf-direct? i am eyeing the Black Mamba LS-01 ARES NITROGEN KO and they seem to be the best option.

    also, anybody have experience with Wei Jang?

    i have the Wei Jiang Detective (Hound) and it’s pretty good. and i just ordered tf dream factory Leadfoot for the first time from tf direct. just got to wait. but they seem trustworthy and you got to be careful when handling wei jiang. my hound had a small piece break off him but it’s not vital. i say go for it if you want to. tf direct will take a couple weeks for stuff to get to you. they say 9-20 days or 12 average but again i say go for it

    Also is MPM Optimus easy to find in Orlando?

    Usually I would feel the same as boxorak, but with POTP wave 1 deluxes generally showing up around mid November 2017 (IIRc the first sighting was on a weekend and I found them in the oasis of North Tampa the Monday after), Ive suddenly become more hopeful.

    Walmart at Bearss/Nebraska had:

    1 x POTP Leader Optimus Prime
    and from Wave 2...

    Target has 10% off Transformers right now. Plus POTP Deluxes are on sale at $12.99

    The West Kendall store has 3 Jazz, 2 Swoop, a Slag and a Dreadwind... plus a Grimlock, 3 Starscreams, 1 Leader OP and 3 Rodimus Primes. And a handful of Prime Masters – but nothing Wave 2.
