    So I'm not sure if these have been found yet, but I found POTP Outback and Cindersaur in a Forbidden Planet store in NYC. IMG_20180703_170804103.jpg IMG_20180703_170918191.jpg IMG_20180703_170933982.jpg

    Basically means comic stores (Diamond Distribution?) are finally getting theirs in.

    There used to be a distinction made by parts of the community between comic book stores supplied by Diamond and "specialty" stores on the one hand, and "regular" mass retail such as Walmart, Toys"R"Us, Target and Kmart on the other. Smaller chains such as Meijer, Kroger and Walgreens fall somewhere in between, and are counted as part of one or the other depending on who you ask. Of course, with the demise of Toys"R"Us and the continuing decline of Kmart, that distinction becomes increasingly pointless...

    I also found them in Washington today, after someone found them elsewhere in Washington last week.

    I agree with nevermore though, comic shops should not be counted. Some get their stock from Diamond but most get stock from chinese sellers to get them early. Its not really worth posting as "news" when a smaller comic shop gets somthing

    Found Outback at Cindersaur Legends W3 today at Target in Pleasant Hill, CA. They weren't even coming up in the system yet!

    I've seen the counter-argument: These toys are OUT in a STORE and you can buy them. With how crappy distribution is these days, your chance of getting them at smaller stores is actually higher than finding them at Walmart...

    These were found at a local toy shop in the OKC area ages ago. Of course, that isn't Walmart or Target, so it wouldn't fly here, i guess.

    Depends on whether you count this:
    POTP Legends Wave 3 found in US

    (Not trying to discredit your sighting. We were actually discussing in the other thread whether it counts or not.)

    I think these have been showing up on the West coast since almost two weeks ago, so hard to say.

    I thought people reported finding these sooner. Well in any case I also found them at Target in Huntington Beach (Southern California) last night.

    I also found these tonight at a local Target. They weren\'t in the system for whatever reason so the guy at Customer Service processed them as toy rewraps and put yellow As-Is tags on them and sold them to me for $6.96. Yes, both he and I both knew they were suppose to be $9.99, we even both commented on it, and he said the toy department was just a real mess right now because of all the clearances being done. Honestly, I don\'t know how Target\'s system works and I suppose if the employee had really wanted to, he could have gone back to toys and grabbed the shrapnel or slash that were still warming the pegs to scan those, but I\'m not going to complain too much about a lesser price for repaints.

    @Sol Fury these were found at Walmarts in WA last week per our own postings on this board. Care to update the news story?
