    Grimstone is really hard to find. I picked up one back in December and I have not seen him since then. Kinda bummed that we did not see any new PowerCore Combiners at ToyFair as I really wanted a DinoKing repaint.

    I will see if my parents up in WI, see another one and let you know. They are in a rural enough place where they find "hard" to find stuff once in a while.

    People were finding these at Walmarts all around me before Christmas, unfortunately all the ones closest to me that I go to never got them at all.

    And NO Walmart in my area has gotten in squat since before Christmas.


    This is a nice example I like to use when discussing why sales in some stores aren't what the companies want. If the product people want to buy simply never comes in, then how are people supposed to buy it?!?

    In retail we are constantly under the gun to get product to the shelf. Yet when the sales don't make it, it's always the fault of the grunt for not getting the product where it needs to go...well...if the products people want sit empty for weeks on end and never came in, then how the hell is anyone supposed to get it to the shelf?

    Silly management!

    I've seen it in Sacramento a few times. Passed coz it looks lame, in my opinion. Boring dinosaurs (and a protomammal). Seriously hasbro... No one cares about styracosaurus, parasaurolophus, pachycephalosaurus, euplocephalus, or dimetrodon (again, not a Dino but a protomammal).

    Grimstone is on clearance here, and some can't find him yet, what a world we live in.

    For months now I have been trying to get my hands on the Dino Pope but I think its like the old saying desperate times call for desperate measures,and just order him from BBTS,as I am pretty sure Walmart will never get them here.And I don't want to get stuck paying $40 or $50 for him on the secondary market,so I am off to BBTS to get my Dino Pope.Later all.

    Yeah, still looking for him here in CT. Saw the Constructicons once before Christmas, which was disappointing cause it meant I just missed the Dinos. Currently every store near me is shelf-warming the previous wave, so I'm not likely to see them any time soon.

    I found the constructicons 3 weeks before christmas, and still have not seen the dino set.
    Im a PCC collector. My big Tfs are displays, but I play with the PCCs with my 3 year old boy. He LOVES em.

    As much as the collectors say they are garbage, and as much as ive seen these move, I think they have been a very cool product

    Natureboy's galleries are looking better & better.

    Leadfoot is still pretty hard to find here, only saw him at 2 Meijers. All the Walmarts just have the Bombshock repaint wave.

    Yet to see a Grimstone set anywhere.

    Honestly I don't know why Grimstone is so hard to find,from what I've read on here by some people the PCC's basically suck,but as for me I love these things,so why can't the people like me find 1 Stinkin' Dino Pope for our collections??.I guess I will have to pray that BBTS gets them in eventually or miss never adding him to my collection.Of all the times Walmart has to quit carrying toys its now (sarcasm).
