    How's the movie figure situation at Ollies now?

    I went there and bought a dlx TLK HotRod a few days before Isaac went there on like September 4th or 5th. When I went, they did not have those Wave 3 TLK deluxes yet. The only had loads of Overlords, voyager octanes, voyager blitzwings, voyager optimus primes, tons of deluxe HotRod (God, must've been like 40 of them), and the few remaining Krock/Twinferno/Quake peg warmers. When I went on the ?4th-or-5th?, everything looked untouched as if they had put it out that day and the same was said for loads of other toys they also stocked in that middle-left area of the store.

    For movie figures, I only see Hot Rod and remote control Sqweeks . For Titans Returns, still Overlord, Octane, Twinferno, Krok, Quake, some Trigger-happy, and 1 Blitzwing. Nothing new, and no Voyager Optimus Prime as I was hoping for.

    So not really anything new.

    Okay. When I went they had at least 5 voyager Optimus Primes mixed in with the octanes and blitzwings.

    Target at the Warwick Mall has a bunch of Bumblebee Movie stuff, aside from SS though they had the new cassettes and Soundwave, which I picked up. Hoping to find a Walmart that has the G1 reissue stuff near ne tomorrow.

    Devastator looks like ass. His green plastic looks so...milky? It is no way as DEEP and VIBRANT as the original toy.

    Anyone collect Grossery Gang figures? Can we add those to sightings posts in here?

    Middletown, RI Walgreen's also has a couple PotP Wreck-Gars.

    No. This is a TF forum. Sightings should be limited to TFs, and maybe other brands of transforming figures. If we start listing other toys, the actual TF sightings will be drowned out. Maybe find a Grossery Gang forum and start a sighting thread there?

    In all my years experience on many toy forums, any RI sightings thread never gets much activity as other state's sightings threads, so I am willing to keep my eyes open for other toys from other toy lines if folks ask for them in addition to TFs. If someone is looking for a Rodimus Unicronus and also a Marvel Legends Mysterio then I'm gonna be a helper and keep my eyes open for both whenever I got toy hunting. A few more toys to look for during a hunt doesn't bother me one bit and I enjoy helping folks out. So Nyeah!:p

    Okay that only narrows it down to several Walgreens stores. Just PM him the exact store address if you don't want the lurkers to pounce on the location and clean it out of Wreck-Gars.

    I picked one up and left one at the Walgreens on North Main St. last Friday. Hope that helps someone.

    As of Nov 2nd, Woonsocket Ollie's was down to their last Overlord, Twinferno, and Krok. They still had a few Quakes, and plenty of TLK Hot Rods.

    The Burlington in the same plaza had a few TLK 1-step Dragonstorms for $18. The "compare to" price was $46. Even the discounters won't pretend that mess was worth eighty bucks.
