    I was told by an employee last year that there was indeed someone there that collects Transformers, but whether scalpers exist there or not I don't know.

    So an update on that. Last night I went in on my break from work. I spoke with a really nice woman who said they were buried on the truck and would be out today. She also said she would hold one and call me today.

    Fast forward to today, I stopped in. No sets on the floor. Had someone check for them. They said they don't have any. So I think there are some games being played. I'll let you guys know if I get a call that they are in.

    I have officially grabbed a velocitron set from Wolf road TRU as of 2 p.m. They had them behind the customer service counter (I assume because of all the calls we made). One was on reserve, and there was at least one unclaimed set they sold to me. I couldn't see if there was another behind but it sounded like there was one more.

    So I found Voltron blue Lion in Long Island Walmart. Got home and tried to make Voltrons legs and found that the blue lion locking mechanism is broken. I took it and yellow apart because my yellow works fine and locks in place. Anyway, the factory installed the wrong spring on the Blue lion. The spring on Blue lion should have been on yellow so when the blue lion is a foot it falls off when you pick up Voltron. Bad QC. Anyway, I'll return it and hope future shipments are fixed.

    No. He's a Legends Class figure. I think a Titan Master can sit inside him though!

    Yes, that's where I started Saturday AM. They had 0 & their system said Colonie had 3 but when I got them on the phone I got the same nonsense everyone else did. 0 at Queensbury as well so now the entire upstate NY is empty.

    Im looking to sell laser prime if your interested. Send me a PM and we can figure out a price.

    Also, I though I read some where that fast lane is in between a deluxe and a legends class. It's like an odd sized figure. I think pounce will be that way too.
