We're WAY PAST this stuff becoming a trend.
Looks like GoLion is creating a precedent. We may need him to sit it out for a little while and allow the bad juju to dissipate. We can't have him creating a drought on the store shelves.
There’s a part of me that wonders if Hasbro has a distribution problem.
Hasbro’s distribution problems are actually the only reason I stopped collecting black series a bit after Rogue One came out
Anyone who tried to collect black series around then probably knows why
There has to be a distribution problem. Only one store in a 20 mile radius got SS wave two voyagers in. That was Dulles Landing Walmart.
How many stores got Hun-Gurr and Elita-1 in?
I can understand the frustration some of you are feeling. Realistically, we shouldn't have to do half the nonsense that we're doing to get these toys.
Real quick edit: The more I think about it, the more I feel that we would be finding the new stuff at TRU if they weren't currently closing. I remember always being able to find wave 2 stuff of any wave at TRU when Target and Walmart didn't have anything. Especially Sterling TRU. This might be that first glimpse of all of us having a harder time finding new items because of a lack of TRU.
I know you're kidding, but I really do feel like I spread my bad luck around when I hunt more. I feel like when I'm not hitting stores as often the stuff shows up more.
This is an easy fix, all GoLion needs to do is wear a lucky Stampy's foot around his neck.
Quick heads up: BBTS has Wave 3 up for preorder.
Yes there is a distribution problem and the embargo in place in recent years(smaller stores not getting their shot at orders until Walmart gets theirs) doesn't help at all.
From what I've noticed, if something starts showing up at multiple Walmarts in multiple states, that's a good time to go hunting. For example, I found Rodimus Unicronus(a few months ago) and Studio Series wave 2 voyagers not long after the initial sightings across different states.
Have any of you noticed your local Ollie's restocking with TR deluxes?
They still have one Landmine at Manassas mall Walmart. Libera had nothing. Neither did the Walmart off of 29 in fairfax.
Fairlakes Target was barren as always, as was Manassas West Target.
I picked up their last cyber shockwave today
They got another one? Damn, I'm never gonna find him. I think that's the only NoVA Walgreens close enough for me to reasonably get to that has gotten any. Unless any of the others got them in the last day or two.
SS wave 1 except for Blackout and Stinger
POTP Optimus x 2
POTP Rodimus Unicronus x 1
It was at Walgreens off centerville turnpike in VA Beach
Not the Walgreens in Centreville, VA. Got it.
Sideswipe is shockwave's wavemate, right? I've seen Sideswipe everywhere. I haven't seen Shockwave at all. It must not actually exist since I personally haven't seen it, and if I haven't seen it it means that we must all be extremely skeptical that it's actually been released.
Ah, okay. That had me confused. Thanks.
Where have you seen Sideswipe? I haven't seen either of them irl.
I saw him at the Walgreens off of 50 near dulles landing
I also saw it at Herndon and Leesburg Walgreens.
Oh, I forgot to mention, there are 4 each of Submarauder and 3 Landmines at the Walmart in woodbridge. I met a guy named Alvin there that collects the SS line. I don't know if he posts here. If you do, it was nice to meet you.
Quick update: I still have not seen an Inferno in NOVA.
I have a spare SS Brawl if there is anyone interested. I will be returning him to a Walmart of convenience next week sometime.
Did you buy it at Dulles landing?
Yes. Yes I did good sir.
