Beechmont Ave has one Inferno right now at 12:05 PM. I’m not buying it - it’s yours for the taking!
Same. I pretty much had slowed to 1 or 2 things a year. Then Prime Wars trilogy started with all these g1 accurate modern takes on characters, designs, gimmicks and size classes that we were not getting before with classics and suddenly I cared about collecting again. Now my shelves are at critical mass and my wallet and I are ready for a break after this.
I believe a lot of the scalping is done by the stockroom workers at these stores. I actually had a Walmart employee scoff at me as I walked by him with the last hungrr. He walked into the aisle in time to watch me put it into my basket.
In other words, it’s a small miracle if these figures even make it off the truck and onto the shelves.
In my experience, neither my coworkers nor I participated in it. Granted, it could happen at other stores but, I don’t believe it to be that grand of scale. If we wanted anything off the truck, we’d have to wait for it to go on the floor. If it was still there an hour or two after opening, it was fair game to purchase. Of all the scalper encounters I’ve had at Toys R Us, it was always the same people lining up every single day a half hour before we open. When we would catch wind of a hot toy/figure, we’d try our best to enforce quantity limits.
Sightings wise: I’ve seen nothing new of note anywhere other than Studio Series.
The Targets on Hilliard-Rome, Trueman, and Lennox!
Thanks for trying your best. But, pretty soon, TRU will no longer be an option. Of course this is all anecdotal but I’ve had several questionable experiences, all of which involved Walmart stock associates in different locations in my area. I would be happy to tell them Edit (the stories)if anyone is interested but this is a sightings thread and I’ll just shut up now.
Thing I notice going to Target any employee on floor I can approach and have them scan the codes on the shelf and they’ll tell me when next shipment comes, when last came and how many of voyager and deluxes each store near by has and they seem fine with helping ( like its their job or something ) Target guy even told me they had prob with people coming in early to buy stuff out to scalp so they started putting limits on Items.
Had experience few times at Walmart ask employee and they don’t seem to want to help. I asked someone this morning and they told me they didn’t want to go get the scan tool in a bit of an unprofessional manner, my wife had a similar experience in a different store today too.
So maybe differences in store policy?
You guys know about brickseek.com?
Thanks that should save some pointless trips!
Was at the Target in green this morning while waiting for my car to get an oil change and no Inferno yet. They did have 1 each of Studio Grimlock and Blackout, as well as 1 each of PotP Optimus and Rodimus Stachimus
Target in Stow potp 1 leader Optimus and and a few SS
Might have a set of things for sale but I’ll have to ask enough to cover all my costs
I just started to see those on Amazon and Ebay a few days ago ... hoping to snag them on Amazon if price drops within reason if not found in store first.
I don’t get why potp is so scarce in stores!
Fixed it for you lol. Wave 1 figures are already becoming shelf warmers because everyone that wants them, has them lol.
I’m gonna ask $75 for the set and pickup available. Before anyone judges my price please know I’m looking to even thin
anybody seen any of wave 2 in hamilton?
Studio Series or PoTP?
Nothing has popped up yet. Hoping later this week or next week will have some new stuff showing up.
i hope so as well, as i really want megs to go with my ss starscream and hun-gurrr just because he looks rad
