    I'm tempted to unload Willis for stupid price and either wait for the official or an FT reissue. All these things seem to get reissued if there's demand...and then they're available for peanuts if/when an official version is released.

    I say do it kibble, the insecticons tempts me to do the same too. Are they really selling for$600? I haven't checked recently but I guess a month or two back they were. There lull in any new official G1 MP probably giving folks itchy fingers.

    I hear you. Out of curiosity I looked up the nearest Ollies which turns out to be a mere 380 miles from here. I enjoy road trips, but not that much.

    Plus no guarantees that 'closest' Ollie would even have Trypticons.

    Shame the Titan class stuff doesn't show up at Costco like I think Metroplex did. I could help people out there.

    As of yesterday evening, Blaine North Target had 2 of each SS Blackout, Grimlock, and Starscream, as well as a smattering of deluxes. Same ol' PotP stuff though.

    Looks like all of Wave 1 SS is in stock on HTS, and it's 20% off on purchases of $100 or more with the code Mayhem. Get you some leaders and throw something little on there to save $20.

    at a local TRU for $17 & change, that with sporadic at best sightings of POTP wv. 2, At least some are finding something buying at retail has been dismal

    IIRC, a lot of Tru online shipped out of Ohio, so probably online warehouse got emptied into local TRU. Lucky for those that live near the online warehouses, they probably get more liquidation stuff.

    Was back at Blaine North Target and the SS Starscreams had increased to 4. They're multiplying!

    I'm honestly surprised at how often I've seen the SS Blackout in stores. Usually it's Grimlock that is gone.

    Are we in a Transformers drought now? I haven't seen anything new...let alone anything not from wave 1 of PotP in over a month.

    It would be nice to see more PotP figures, like wave 3 so I can finish Abominus. Still haven't seen wave 3 of the Prime Masters. Hard to support a line that's never for sale...

    I'm wondering if maybe stores aren't ordering because they've got four Transformers toylines going at the same time still in many places. They still have Robots in Disguise stuff around as well as The Last Knight, adding the Power of the Primes AND Studio Series stuff...it's a bit of an overload.

    I mean where the PotP stuff is supposed to be is filled in a lot of stores with the SS toys.

    And I know with Titans Returns, the only way I ever got the last couple waves of Deluxes was thanks to Kham here. So I wonder if we'll see PotP later waves only in online stores.

    Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiisssss.

    It's overload, and since the old stuff is hanging on the pegs like dead bats, there's no reason/space for the new stuff.

    At the same time, I feel like... maybe SS and PotP AREN'T running at the same time, and that's why we've seen so little PotP lately; until wave 1 of SS 'finishes', it's gonna be what's hanging on. After all, it's only been a few weeks since that was fully around in stores anyhow.

    I never seen wave 2 of prime masters. I've seen wave 2 of every other class of figs but those. I don't know if they ever hit Mass retailers, only heard of regional stores getting them.

    Its so damn depressing.

    Especially when Target put the RiD stuff on deep discount over the holidays then apparently decided they were going to reup on Team Combiners at FULL PRICE.

    And those RC Sqweeks aren't going anywhere either. Let's face it, TLK bombed and royally screwed up Transformers restocking in the process.

    They really need to clearance out all TLK stuff and replace it with SS so there's room for Potp. Walmart had done it already but then they went even further and got rid of Potp too(except dlx and pm) *sigh*

    Picked up that lone Rippersnapper from WSP target. Been a while since I been over there, had to walk around for a bit just to find the damn toys cuz they moved everything around. I liked that target cuz they have (had) the toys right up front.
