    Kind of a longahot, but around two years ago a friend took me to this place a bit north of AA/Ypsi that sold Magic cards, but I was immediately drawn to all of the collectible toys, especially the Zords and Transformers figures.

    I can't remwreme its name for life of me, but would anyone happen to have an inkling based on these old photos?

    This looks like Big Ben’s Comics Oasis. I’ve only been there once, so I don’t know for sure, but I think it’s then.

    Those pictures are definitely from Big Ben's, I can see the logo on the carded TF's behind that 3p Devastator. It's about 25 miles east of AA/Ypsi

    THANK YOU! Not remembering the name of this place was bothering me!

    I'll have to make a trip out some time! I wanted to buy a bunch of the convention exclusive figures, but my friends who went in for Magic stuff dragged me away haha

    Forgot to post this last night! For anyone still looking for Terrorcons, POTP W3 is at Hall Rd Walmart. They have a buttload of them too! W3 Legends too.

    Saw the reissue Hot Rod at walmart in saginaw today...looked like a full compliment of them but oddly one had been opened, reversed in the package, and then re-taped shut. It looked like everything was there, but the instructions packet was put in backwards so the decal sheet may be missing. the other 5 look ok. 2 Starscreams left as well. They also had the Solo movie black series Stormtrooper and one of the local walgreens has the black series General Veers and the Marvel Silver surfer if anyone is looking for those...

    What area was this? Store near me had them in a week before I knew FiveBelow was selling them. I grabbed a Jyn and Krennic but Chirrut and Baze were long gone. Checked another store and same deal. I did walk out with an extra TR Titan Masters Shuffler and Skytread.

    Went to Southgate Walmart a couple of days ago and they had 4 g1 reissue devastators and snagged 1 and left 3, came back yesterday looking for hotrod and a Walmart girl was looking for the devy set and I pointed at the top shelf for her, probably someone was on the phone asking about them, came back today and all 3 are gone, hopefully the same person didn't buy all 3 because that would be ridiculous. Hopefully 3 people got a chance to get 1.

    Thanks plowking, I was able to get a Devastator from Southgate.

    Sideswipe, were you there around 1:30 yesterday? I called right around then. Not sure about the last two, but I just bought one.
