    I was previously unaware that this was a place that existed.

    I finally bit the bullet and bought Windblade on eBay and then a slightly marked up Misfire on Amazon. Got Windblade today, I like her much better than the old version. Also awaiting my prime master figures too. They had a few jazz and dreadwings at target in Saugus today along with the full wave of legends sized figures.

    Found the majority of a case of POTP Prime Masters, along with a lone Shrapnel, at the Dedham TRU today. I already have all of these (TRU and HTS websites) but thought it was cool to finally see them in stores. I left everything behind if anyone needs anything. Although I advise against going to any TRU this time of year, there were dozens of people in line waiting to check out.

    I was in RI earlier this week for business and hit the Warwick and then N attleboro TRU with no luck. Usually N Attleboro gets new stuff before the Boston area so I was pleasantly surprised

    Dedham TRU is loaded with POTP figures. Every single Prime Master, Legend, Deluxe and Voyager was present! I grabbed a Grimlock and a Starscream to put under the tree (for myself!).

    TRU has been notoriously awful for distribution and keeping up on waves so kudos to them for getting these all before Christmas. They even beat Target!

    Picked up POTP Grimlock, Starscream and the Prime Masters at Brockton Toys R US. Sill on the look out for the leader class figures.

    Saw PotP Starscream and 2 Skrapnels at Holyoke Target this afternoon. The TF section looked like a hurricane had gone through it.

    Thank you

    So I hit a few Targets that Brickseek said had Leaders...
    "It says they're in an aisle that doesn't exist"
    "We have zero"
    "They're in the back, I can grab them for you"

    Much stranger range of responses than what I got for the Deluxes, FYI.

    Used to work at target. What happened is that they have the boxes and the items are tied to the store but not to the aisle yet. They should have backroom locations unless they are all on a single pallet, so just ask if you run into this.

    No, but only because my expectations were low ;)  Not a fan of faux parts or partsforming, but on the whole I think these guys are worth having.

    Was hoping to finally see some POTP out in the wild today, but no... Target in Everett is messy and has nothing worth mentioning. Except TR a stiff is starting to get discounted. They had Titan Masters and one Seaspray.
