    Looks like the Nashua TRU is one of the locations on the cutting block.

    Edit. Nevermind. Didn't look at the address. It is the Babies R Us that is closing.

    Fairly spotty POTP wave 2 selection around the Nashua/Manchester area

    TRU Nashua - Wave 2 Leaders
    Target S. Nashua - 1 wave 2 Legend Tailgate
    Target Amherst St. Nashua - Nothing wave 2 after I got the last Voyager Elita one

    Manchester TRU - Wave 2 Legends and Leaders.

    No wave 2 Deluxe or Prime master sightings yet.

    Stopped by the Salem TRU today to check out their Going Out of Business sale. Action figures were only 10% off and Transformers were pretty picked clean except for TLK Infernocus and Dragonstorm. Also a few Primus there but at only 10% off still not enough of a discount for me to get a second of that mold.

    S. Nashua TRU had a few wave 2 deluxes (no short packed figures).

    Bedford Target had a bunch of the diecast Voltron sets on clearance for $35. That might be the location to stalk if you're waiting for them to drop the clearance price even more.

    Targets in NH have Movie series figures in the stock room. I just picked up both leader class figures at the Target in Hooksett.

    Also keep an eye out at Walmart, POTP leaders and voyagers (YMMV) are on clearance for $30 and $17 respectively. Though only the Bedford Walmart had POTP voyagers on clearance. I picked up Hungrr for $17

    There were still 2 or 3 left after I picked up mine last night. I caught the cashier before she inked out bar code on the second TC, but not the first :(  Guess I know which one I'll open.
