    Everything of the DOTM toyline that has currently been released that I want I've bought. So I've been looking other places besides Walmart, Toys"R"Us and Target for other Transformer merchandise and lines. I'm making this thread for you guys to post other places that you have ever found or bought Transformers. I need to mix up my collection a little bit more. Help me out! :D 

    Here's a list of where I've either seen them or someone has said they've seen some in the past.

    (I'll keep this updated if anyone ever wants to come back here for future reference.)

    -Walmart
    -Target
    -Toys"R"Us
    -Kmart
    -Ross Dress For Less
    -Marshalls
    -T.J.Maxx
    -Big Lots
    -Kohl's
    -CVS
    -Hastings
    -Walgreens
    -Kroger
    -Comic Shops
    -Dollar stores
    -Rite Aid

    Did I miss any? :) 

    Any places you guys know of that aren't so obvious?

    You've covered me.

    Perhaps the toy store in the mall has DOTM, but I haven't been there in months...

    They usually suck balls, so I somehow doubt they do.

    Hammond Toys. So many ROTF Chromias...

    Heh, I wish. The oldest TF I've ever seen in one of those is an incomplete Transmetal Optimus Primal.

    Well, I've also heard of this magical place where somebody could find almost any transformer imaginable in any condition imaginable, and you can sometimes get them for a steal.
    "TFW2005.com"

    Check out the Junkion sales boards here :thumb .

    Also, eBay, if you can't find what you need here.

    Boscov's, though that's limited to the Mid-Atlantic US, I think. For what it's worth, Boscov's was the only store I could find this set at.

    And of course there are small, local toy stores, though those vary wildly.

    Ollie's is in 10 states, according to their website. That's the only place I can think of at that moment that I've found TFs at not in the initial post.

    Do you want to cover all places on the world with Transformers or just US/Canada/UK.
