    HTS is where it's at now for non import, non exclusive shopping.

    For import stuff I usually hit up TFSource and BBTS.

    Walmart if at all possible. It may only be a few pennies less but those pennies add up. Target is next up followed by TRU. HTS/ Ebay rounds out the list

    As an almost completest collector it is important that I am able to hit up the local retail store and get my toys. I will go online only after I know that I can't get it anywhere else.

    Mostly eBay, TFSource, and Automaton Toys. Any Hasbro stuff I try to pick up at Wal-Mart as much as I can considering how expensive TRU is.

    I usually buy my toys from BBTS and Digital-Toys, mainly because Swedish retail is 3 times higher than US, + that we never, ever get any exclusives. Sometimes I buy locally, at TRU or the Danish store BR Leksaker to support the franchise in my region.

    I try to buy local as much as possible ( Target, TRU, Kmart, and if I'm desperate, Wal-Mart)

    Although if it's something that's older or from another country then I check BBTS first. After that it's just where ever I can find the best deals.

    WalMart, because it's close. If I get up there to a Target or TRU, I try to come away with something. And I love Amazon, I check there often.

    Mostly Wal*Mart and Target. Sometimes TRU. BBTS and TFsource for specialty TFs and on RARE occasion Ebay.

    Literally wherever I can. I've put a stop to my personal boycott on WalMart as they save me $3 per Deluxe over TRU. I'm using eBay right now solely for picking up Classics that I missed a couple years ago, as well as buying from people off of here.

    I've gone through, but I have yet to buy off of BBTS, HTS, or ActionHQ. I certainly would, but honestly I save some on eBay. If I find nothing but auctions or overpriced "Buy it now"s, then yeah, I'll go for the online store.

    Current releases from HTS as long as there's a coupon code, otherwise mostly Target as my toy runs are tied to errands. Given the list of choices I assume you were focusing on domestic releases.

    But for imports I get stuff from a buddy of mine that runs a website.

    Target,Toys R Us, or WalMart. The latter I resort to last.
    Ebay for any older toys which I don't have

    I get Deluxes at Wal-mart now, exclusively. Once 7.77 goes away, I'll branch back out.

    I'll get Exclusives, Voyager, and Ultra/Leader at ToysRUs and Target. I'll hit KB up if I can't find something. Sometimes I find what I want and pay through the nose, most of the time it's a waste of time.

    Older stuff and foreign stuff will find me scouring eBay.
