Everything in Sanford is a hellhole. I don't even stop in Sanford to get gas.
Homestead WM still has PotP wave 1 deluxes. No Voyagers or Leaders. They restocked SS wave 1 deluxes.
The Walgreens across the street has 2 straight-leg Shockwaves. Only wave 1 PotP deluxes.
Walgreens off University Blvd and Dean Rd has one Snarl, one Blackwing
Walgreens off Aloma and Lakemont Ave has one Sludge, one Rippersnapper.
Walgreens off Semoran North of East Colonial has 3 or 4 of each, Chromedome, Scourge, Skullsmasher /head desk. And with that, I'm done with the Moonracer hunt and paying a few bucks more for her on Amazon.
University/Goldenrod Target has 2 Studio Series Voyager Starscreams, 1 Optimus Prime.
One Leader Blackout, 3 Grimlocks.
Palatka Walgreens still hasn't got anything but the same wave 1 Titans Return crap they've had for the past year or so... Though Ollies has got some Metal Defender figures now, and a ton of the Kup/Hot Rod wave. The last Trypticon is finally gone...
Walgreens on Killan and 117th has no PotP deluxes and 1 Shockwave.
Cutler Bay Target has 2 Rodimus, SS Grimlock and Blackout, Starscream, and deluxes.
Anyone in Tampa need a Moonracer? Picked one up for someone and they wasted my time. Just asking my cost $21.50
Walmart in Ocala restocked something!!
It was only the wave 2 Prime Masters but at least its something...
Walmart in New Smyrna has a couple of each wave 2 prime masters left as of 8:00 this evening.
If you're in the Largo area, the Walgreens on Misery near the Bank of America/Office Depot area there's the most bizarre sighting:
Potp: Swoop x 1
Titans Return: Blurr x 1
TR: Weirdwolf x 1
They all come with some really cool dust! So if you have allergies take your Benadryl first.
Homestead WM has 1 Voyager Inferno and 3 Grimlocks. Legends restocked with Battleslash, Roadtrap, and one Tailgate. No new deluxes or Leaders. Only some wave 1 Prime Masters.
Anyone seeing studio series wave 2 in the central orlando area? Been clamoring for a Jazz and Megatron.
The trash Walmart on Roosevelt in Largo has 1 PoTP Inferno.
Dang It I was there 2 days ago.
Ocoee Walmart has about 5 PotP Infernos.
Gall Blvd Walmart in Zephyhills has 1 Inferno left as well as Wave 2 Legends. Surprised they got anything new at all
Larghetto sums it up. Went there and picked this up. Went to park and moron going the wrong way yells at me even with me stopped to allow him to come through. His excuse was he was there first. Just because you thought 2 + 2 was 5 and were the first to answer doesn’t make you in the right. Jackass.
Central FL/Orlando area collectors: I'm considering ordering a case of PotP wave 3 (?) deluxes at EPIC Comics, due out 7/25. We don't usually order Transformers since 1) they're generally easy to find, as opposed to some import toys at least, and 2) box stores typically get cases at better prices than us so they can sell them cheaper and don't have to factor the cost of shipping the case into individual figures.
That said, we all know how difficult it's been to get anything beyond the 1st wave at the usual stores, so if pre-ordering a case (2 of each Cutthroat, Blot, Sinnertwin, and Jazz) seems like something I should do, let me know via DM's so as to keep it off the Sightings board. There aren't currently any figures in that assortment that I'd really want for myself, so there's 2 of each available. The harder sell is obviously Jazz, but I might take one of those since I sold my Reveal The Shield one years ago.
Again, just putting this out there for anybody in the area who's sick of driving around and leaving stores empty handed, but also doesn't want to immediately resort to paying online prices + shipping. Doing some quick math, it looks like they'd retail for $18.99-$20 each which is just about standard now.
Apologies for the wall of text posting. I'd very much like to keep this discussion off this board simply to stay on topic and not annoy collectors in other parts of FL who aren't partaking in it. Let me know what you think. Case needs to be ordered by July 2nd. Thanks for reading.
3 PotP Voyager Infernos at East Colonial Super Wal-Mart near Alafaya Trail! Restocked wave 1 deluxes.
2 rippersnappers for $20 at the Walgreens on S. Apopka Vineland Rd. & Vinings Way Blvd.
