    Valley View WalMart finally got in tons of PL figures - hidden on endcap, but oddly enough, not on the side with HIGH TRAFFIC endcaps...they're back toward the bicycles. They've got em all. Shelf stock is old junk - endcap is where you wanna go for all your PLinx needs!

    Not a toy sighting, but Books A Million had the Devils Due Joe/TF issues 1 and 2 still out. Cover for #1 was the Megatron/Cobra Commander...they didn't have the others. Lots of copies of #2, but only 2 or 3 of number 1. Wouldn't mention it, except that they're sold out at my local shop, and this is a chance to get them if ya need em!

    Roanoke Target - nice full display, though nothing terribly new. Had some Universe, along with packed out shelves on Galvatron, Unicron, and Super Prime. Bunch of Smokescreens, and turning back the clock, they had 4 or 5 Laserbeaks on an end cap on clearance ($7.48 each).

    Valley View WalMart - Supercon PL endcap 1/3 full - Primes, Hot Shots, Thrusts, Hoist, Cyclonus, and Wheeljack. Still have a ton of Demolishors and Scavengers. Unicron and Super Prime packed out. Not much Universe, and only ONE Tidal Wave (with cd). And they had those cheap, bloated knockoff figures that have been mentioned on the boards. Also had a single Armada Skywarp.

    Lastly, HOC Rodimus Prime is still warming the shelf at Salem Walgreens.

    FL Target

    I stashed some PL supercons on the top shelf of the TF aisle by the beanbags. Two Thrust, one Hot Shot, one Cyclonus.

    K-B @ Valley View - ONE lonely transformer in the entire store. A universe figure that was all alone. Sad situation. But Star Wars figures were on sale for $1.99 if anyone cares.

    Wal-Mart on 220 South of Roanoke - LOTS of Unicrons (8-10 of them), and all the PL figures. Plus, new minicon sets. Lots of Smokescreens, however - not that thats unique or anything! Saw new style Star Wars figures too - "bonus packs" of 2 figures. Kinda cool.

    Fair Lakes Walmart

    This morning, FL Walmart had a several sets of the PL supercons. They also had the repainted destruction team, but I believe Tryp snatched it up.

    TRU - Nothing really "new" at all. Single Tidal Wave. Only reissues were Jazz, Silverstreak, Thundercracker, and Red Alert. 3 Unicrons. Got the last regular non PL Hotshot in the entire Roanoke Valley, I think, so good for me. NO new mincons. Not really big into Simpsons toys, but found the Stephen Hawking figure - someone tried to hide it, but too bad, cause its the only one and its MINE. It rocks.

    Sams Club - REALLY heavy on Universe Primes. Apparently Magnus is the more popular of the two by quite a bit. Cases have been picked through to pull out the Magnuses, and pretty soon they're gonna have a yellow wall o' Primes.

    PS - and WalMart didn't have any of these "bonus pack" minicon sets, by the way!

    Anyone know if there are any Overloads anywhere in Northern VA? Or when they might be more later? Should have gotten him instead of Thundercracker when I had the chance when I picked up Armada Thundercracker and Armada Skywarp, but oh well. Thanks!

    Cool, thanks. I've got pretty much everything that I've been looking for so far, just looking for Overload which I found today. Probably get PL Jetfire next, saw him at Bailey's TRU before.
