    Just curious, How many stores have you gone to in a single day of toy hunting? I think my max is 9 or 10 stores in a day. I was pretty tired of driving after that.

    One time on vacation, up to Missouri, everytime we stopped I looked for a Wal-Mart or TRU trying to find an Animated Leader Megatron. Never was able to find one.

    This is the reason I'm so afraid of Skywarp being a Walmart exclusive

    a

    I have been to a large amount of stores when I have to go to GA from AL or vice versa, try to hit everyone I can.

    I saw Starscream once, of course I did not have the money, and I am sure Skywarp will be more, I only saw him once at the one Wal-Mart that was it, I was always hoping for Skywarp, but I don't thiunk I will be able to pick him up either, if I see him or not.

    It's been a long time since I did a marathon toy run. Back before I had kids and gas was affordable, I'd make a day of it and hit every Walmart, Target and Kmart in the area.

    Now, I'll stop at a store or two on my commute and that's about it.

    I've hit 15 stores in one day .

    2 Walmarts
    1 Target
    1 TRU
    1 Kaybee
    1 Boscovs
    1 K-Mart
    1 Big Lots
    1 Ollie's
    and about 6 or 7 Family Dolar /Dollar General Stores.


    Actually no , Scratch that more like 20+ cause i'd also hit 3 Game Stops, 1 Hot Topic, 1 Spencer's, FYE , Sam Goodies, Khol's, MArshel's, Ross, and a few others ....

    So when I did a serious Hunt a couple years ago , I'd hit over 20 stores in one day ...it usually took me about 2 hours...but that was when the Economy was great , and all these stores were still around.

    Up to six. Two Targets, three Walmarts, and a TRU. I did search through 4 Walgreens and a Newbury Comics the day before the official release in search for scouts.
