    Looks like I'm getting a littlle of that Toy-Karma. Found Grapple yesterday at a Ross in LA, just off the 110 at Vernon. If you feel like braving south central LA, as of yesterday they had 1 Grapple left, 3 or 4 Lugnuts, and a Deepdive.

    Ross in Montclare off the 10 at Central had a Grapple and a Lugnut. No sign of WC though.

    That's great! But the 2 TJMaxx I've visited had nothing...so far. Guess I'll check them again in the coming days.

    South San Francisco Costco on El Camino Real has no Ironhide. They don't have a single Leader class on the floor. I asked for them and was told to check back next week.

    Before I went to work.
    I checked:
    - Santa Ana Ross on McFadden: nothing
    - Westminster at Westminster and Golden West: nothing
    - Golden West and Katella (Stanton I think?): 2 Deep Dive

    Okay I'm gonna be at work all day til 8.5pm. I'm not even sure if I can visit more shops after work since it will be late.

    If anyone finds RTS Grapple please buy it and save one for me! If you live far, I'm willing to pay shipping!

    You are way late on this. Found Wreck Gar, Perceptor, and the legends about 3 weeks ago. Theyre mostly all gone now. *EDIT* o crap I just saw the front page

    Oh and ive been meaning to say..huge props to VWMatrix for letting that little kid grab Grapple. Weve all got to keep things in perspective and kids always get first dibs. We were all little once. None of us would be TF fans today if we had to deal with grown men practically pulling toys out of our hands haha

    Moon check the TFW homepage. Grapple and Lugnut were also just spotted at TJMaxx.

    BTW, if for some reason someone isn't able to find a Lugnut at Ross or TJMaxx weeks/months from now, there is still one other option besides ebay.

    I have 3 Lugnuts for $15 each (avg of 2 from Ross and 1 for $23). Shipping is actual. e.g. MISB shipped to SoCal is $20.53.

    Picked up Banzaitron, Terra Dive, and Tomahawk, but there weren't anymore. I really want to find Strafe but have still been unsuccessful. If anyone sees him at a Ross, TJ Max, etc in O.C. I'd gladly pay you Tuesday if you pick him up for me! I'll throw in some TF stickers too if you want. :)

    Actually, I'm not sure! I have had to work late the last couple days and have been on baby duty when I'm at home. This morning I was off work and I was with the family at breakfast and convinced the wife we should stop at the Ross/TJ Maxx at Anaheim Plaza on the way back. But I have not been able to make it to Brea. I might be able to check if it's there tomorrow but I'm kinda assuming it's already gone at this point.

    That's probably way too much information...I should have just said: "I don't know, I haven't been able to check.":lol
