    Went out to run some other errands, found a PM OP, couple Wave 3 titan masters (Lion guy and Overboard) and the RiD15 combiner sets at Troy Walmart. Target on Coolidge has a leader Soundwave and a couple each of the wave 3 titan masters.

    I actually decided to head out this evening and hit 2 Walmarts, 3 Targets, and a TRU by making one big loop around where I live. Partly to spend some time out on my own, partly to see if I could find Sixshot (and Shuffler [Ha!]), but honestly it was more depressing then anything else.

    Only one store had Deluxes and it was a Walmart with wave 2? Chromedome, Highbrow, etc. None of the Takara Chromedomes either. I'm glad I broke my budget two weeks ago instead of waiting until this week to pick up the only TR Megatron I've seen, as I barely saw any Voyagers as well, and those were almost all Astrotrains. Only TRU had Legends and that was the Wheelie/Rewind wave.

    It wasn't an entire loss, at one Walmart I picked up Sawback, the other Fangry (who looks really good on Mindwipe).

    I was really expecting based on the reports that stores were restocking and that nearly every stop would have pegs with items on it again, even if they weren't the newest and latest, but instead it was a lot of bare pegs everywhere, but it seems like anything that comes in must be nearly instantly purchased returning them to bare pegs again. Most don't even have much in the way of RID.

    I'm also glad I had ordered the TR Legends a few months ago now and gotten the set of Kickback, Gnaw, and Bumblebee even though I didn't really want Bumblebee at the time (though in hand, he's pretty nifty), otherwise I would be really concerned at this point that I'd never find Kickback to complete my Insecticons.

    Cadillac was pretty bare bones for anything new. Though if you're looking for Gnaw still I've found full assortments of his wave at 3 different meijers.

    I am a very active Pokémon go player. I'm pretty up on all the news and tricks, if you've got a question just let me know.
    I mostly play downriver and in downtown Detroit.

    Thanks for the tip...had to check two stores but found Kickback and Gnaw. Bumblebee was at both, but 3 of each at both so left him for now.

    Is there just 3 in that wave?

    It doesn't matter how many are in the case, I need all of them.

    Sooner than later, if possible.

    Meijer should be your answer.

    I've opened two cases, there's three of each in a case of 9. Deluxes ship in cases of 8.

    however many there are in a case, Bumblebee is definitely the pegwarmer of the bunch. Why Bumblebee...aren't we going to see enough of him warming pegs in a couple months when the movie toys hit? lol

    On top of Movie Bees, the legend Bee is going to be pegwarming for a long time as he's in wave 4 also with Chase and Brawn.

    For anyone interested, warp9 comics in Clawson has Takara Legends Lio Convoy, but when he said 80 I laughed my way out the door.

    Left 1 Hot Rod, i think its deluxe class, at Lakeside Target......
    M59 is all torn up with road construction so you would have to be a dedicated collector to venture out.

    I know it's late to say this, but Meijer M-Perks members get 10% off today. If you're going out tonight clip the coupon in your account.

    It's a really cool figure....but $80 is pushing it.

    Yup, hlj had it for 35 and change last week, with ems, still under 50, but 80, nope, nope, nope. They also have mp Cheetor, but I didn't bother to ask after he said 80 for Lio.

    That's about what I paid via Amazon. I don't think it's an overly popular toy, it may even go a bit cheaper in time.

    Yeah, I can't imagine anyone dropping 80 on it, even the bbts price of 60 is pushing it, but I have a feeling he and convoybat will both drop over time. I guess if someone has $$$ to burn there you go.

    Meijer is now getting in not only the Gnaw/Kickback/Bumblebee scouts/legends/whatever, but also the Rodimus Deluxe Wave.
