    None in CNY. Just a few remnants of Wave 1 at the Utica Walmart.

    I've never understood who for pretty much decades now, Hasbro make so much of wave 1 items. It happens line after line. Seems they should have data by now about the amount an average wave sells before it lingers on shelves.

    Afaik, Unless it’s a limited item they don’t decide on quantities, they just make what’s ordered. So they can advise stores on what they think they should order and how much and when but at the end of the day Walmart’s gonna Walmart

    Non TF. Walmart New Hartford clearanced the 40th Anniversary Black Series Darth Vaders to $10! Not a fan of the line, but at that price I couldn’t resist not picking one up!

    East Greenbush Wal-Mart has Studio deluxes, voyagers, and legends tailgate. East Greenbush target also had studio deluxe and voyagers as well as 1 grimlock. Still no sign of blackwing.

    Is there anywhere else that sells TFs(POTP) in the Hudson Valley besides don’t-stock-for-shit Target/Walmart? Everyday I pass by the Poughkeepsie Target on the way to work and it’s always empty, aside from the Studio Series which that damn store seems to only stock now.

    When I do see somthing new it just one deluxe Dreadwind/Rippersnapper so shout out to the POS scalper that keeps buying out everything that they do put out!

    You can try Walgreens, but they’re usually hit or miss as well & they never carry a full case assortment.

    Yea no. Not wasting my time there either. It’s been two months since I even saw POTP wave 2 and I was broke that time. Should note that during that time I only saw Hun-gurr once, and by that I mean only the box with a AOE lockdown in it... so props to the prick who pulled that stunt.

    Hasbro needs to get there act together cause Im really starting to lose my patience with this damn franchise.

    I can't really blame Hasbro for this, rather the stores for not ordering.

    Barren! The action figure aisles at my local Walmart & Target stores look like a blank crossword puzzle!

    If you have an Ollie’s in your area, I’d start checking them for Trypticon! This is from New Hartford, NY. I counted 16 total. Didn’t buy any, as I already have one. Happy Hunting!

    Checked Latham Target and Walmart. Still no blackwing. Plenty of studio deluxes and voyagers though.

    Looks like the lost wave (Titans Return Wave 5) is showing up at Ollie’s as well!

    Noticed that in Middletown Ollies too. Funny enough they are next door to the TRU so i believe that they decided "we want that"

    Figured I'd order the wave 2 prime masters from BBTS as I haven't seen them anywhere, annnd they're out of stock. Nothing at TFS or CP either. So now, I wait.

    Dumb question but...how do you get INTO the Midtown Ollies? I went there last year to see if they had Fort Max, and I couldn't figure out where the actual store was. Just the drop-off office.
