    Well seeing that our boards have been here for quite a while and only now do we have a Vermont thread. I guess that does mean you're the only Vermont person. :lol

    You are probably right. Or perhaps, they just needed someone to get the ball rolling.

    Possibly.

    Maine, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Wyoming and Alaska are still off the board though.

    I believe DESTRUCTION said he was from Vermont. He's been hanging out with the cool people in the NH sightings thread :p 

    I grew up there (hour north of White River Jct), then wised up and got the heck out of there ;) 

    NH FTW!!!

    Great! It's good to hear that I'm not alone in this winter tundra. I just moved here a month ago and am a bit distraut by the lack of Targets.

    Ha ha. It takes more than a month to call yourself a Vermonter. You're just a legal resident of VT. :thumb

    The TRU in Williston had everything but no Deluxes. I thought that was very strange.

    The wal-Mart in Williston only had a few deluxes. No display what so ever.

    The KB at University mall had just about everything including deluxes but as usual, their prices were three bucks higher than everywhere else.

    Yeah KB is just pricing themselves out of business IMO.

    I'm sure they will ave a sale in a couple weeks but at that point everyone will have already got what they wanted somewhere else at 1/3 the price. All kb is really good for are clearance items at this point. It's too bad cause there aren't many options of places to go to buy toys in Vermont. Oh how I wish for a Target.

    Sorry to post in here without a sighting. My best friend lived in Vermont. (South-East end of the state) He would drive over to the nearby cities in New Hampshire, (Lebanon or Claremont) where there's no tax. Har har. I live in Ontario, BTW. Vermont is really a big park, with very few stores. Everyone there has to own a car, since it's like living in the countryside. (well, I guess unless you live in the University town) I do love how green and undeveloped it is, but I can't say anything else about it. My friend had nothing good to say of the locals, no offense to you guys. Other than the few friends he found that weren't bad stereotypes.
    Even the bootleg pickings were slim at the Big Lots there. T_T; No TF bootlegs.
    I forget which NH city is which, but one had a KB Toys, a Wal-Mart. (I think that was West Lebanon) The other one had a Wal-Mart and a K-Mart. (I think that was Claremont) The nearest Target was like 2 or 3 hours drive south in NH. @_@;

    edit: anyone in north-west Vermont? (like Burlington) I'm looking for someone who could do me a favor and receive packages I order online, and then I could drive down and pick them up once a year. Ideally someone with references so I can trust them with stuff. :)  I'm desperately in need of a safe place to send my club magazines, since the current address they're sent to never receives them, and I don't have a good way of picking them up from him now that BotCon is over.

    Saw the Robot replicas at the TRU in Williston. Just the normal three though. On a different note: I found the new 25th Anniversary Joes at the KB in University mall.

    Other than that, I'm desperate for some new robots.

    Nope! I'm here now that I found this board.

    But since there are few stores in VT mainly I'd be checking out MA threads and NH threads.

    No, you need to keep Vermont collecting alive. I need to know I'm not alone up here.

    Yes, but this is a 'sightings' thread. I'm a proud Vermont collector, but know well that most of what you're going to find isn't here.

    Sad but true, I grew up in Vermont and I can attest to the lack of stores to buy TFs. That's one thing I love about southern NH, there's plenty of places to find TFs.

    I guess that's all true but I live in Northern Vermont and I can go to Williston or Plattsburgh, NY and usually find some stuff. No Target yet though. What a shame.
