    So I went hunting for some Rhino today. Unfortunately the Safari was unfruitful. The local Five Below did not have any of these unfortunately.

    I was also hoping they had rewind. I need me a rewind since I wasn't collecting while he was out.

    The 5 below on 3 west in clifton has several, at least 3 left after the one I bought.

    Also a bunch of destiny megablocks kits.

    Well, they are expecting a truck tonight and may have some tomorrow. So I will wait before beginning the hunt.

    I have done the math on hunting, and even buying clearance, it get's expensive. Just food for thought for other hunters. If I went to the nearest 5 below that is not by my house (which is about 8 miles away). It would 21.5 miles away. Multiply that by 2 for the roundtrip. That is 43 miles. My car is pretty shitty, so I get roughly 3 gallons of gas for that. Gas is $2.60 a gallon. Then I would have to pay tolls. I am going to assume it's about $1.50 in tolls.

    So all said and done:
    $3 for Ramhorn
    $.25 tax
    $7.80 in gas
    $1.50 in tolls

    Total for Ramhorn would be $12.55. That's why when I go hunting, I go with the intent of picking up multiple figures. So I hope that my local 5 Below gets them or that any store gets Wave 2 in. This way that cost gets spread. As this doesn't take into account the 1.5 hours that round trip cost me.

    If anyone finds a Ramhorn or two, pick up for me around northern NJ? Couldn't get to any Five Below today, unlikely I can tomorrow. Damn 12 hours...

    I have been looking at surrounding States, and where people have been. I don't think we are seeing the Wave 2s any time this week. I could be wrong, but that well looks like it may have dried in terms of distribution.

    Any time I see anything first spotted in the West Coast, I know it'll be rough to get it here.

    Damn it, I may need to venture out to find Ramhorn. Unless someone on here is in Middletown anytime soon as has a spare Ramhorn. It doesn't look like the local 5 below are getting these. All other stores seem tho have gotten these in, but the Homdel one hasn't. They had a shipment today, and it wasn't on there.

    One Ramhorn at Five Below in Paramus (now in my possession). Had a ptero and nightbeat among others for those looking.

    I also stumbled upon some pretty cool RID Optimus and Bumblebee Pez dispensers for $5 each. It comes with a dispenser and snap on armor to turn them into one legged action figures! Hadn't heard of them prior to this (and they are much neater than those poor RID figs in the safe to eat version of Kindereggs sold here).

    That's distressing. Ramhorn is the only titanmaster I never found anywhere. I refuse to pay $30 for one, $3 sounds way better. I stopped into the Five Below in Woodbridge by the Wegmans during lunch today and they had titanmasters but no Ramhorn. The pegs were mostly empty so the Ramhorns may have been cleaned out already but the remaining ones were all wave 4 so its possible they never got him in the first place. I'm tempted to drive around searching Five Below stores but the tipping point where the driving isn't worth the $27 savings will be hit pretty quickly. At least you saved me a trip to the Holmdel one on the way home from work. That store is very close to my home.

    If you find a Ramhorn, mind picking one up for me as well? If your by holmdel, so am I (in Middletown), so we may be able to help each other out.

    I have been mapping out the 5 belows, and it seems only northern jersey has gotten Ramhorn. Woodbridge may even be the cutoff of stores that even got any waves, even if what they got was wave 4.

    Today I spotted one Rodimus Unicronus at TRU in Freehold and another Rodimus Unicronus along with some leader Optimus Primes at the Freehold Walmart. Didn't see any other Wave 2 POTP stuff, interesting that the leader figure somehow made it before the deluxes and voyagers.

    Sure, no problem. He's only $3 in the store so not the biggest of deals. I'm technically in Hazlet but live off of Laurel Ave so that 5 Below is just down the street. I'll be stopping there daily hoping he shows up.

    Next truck is Monday.

    However, gut tells me the stuff they sent to the stores is already at the stores. So not sure if we'd see him.
