    I do live in the IE and from my experience, Target is the only store that has the BotBots available for sale. Although, it is getting less and less as the days go by. Besides Amazon and eBay, I can only think of Frank & Son's Collectable Show in City of Industry when it opens back up. There is Phat Collectables in Anaheim, but I don't know if they opened up yet. Hope this helps you.

    Since I don't collect the BotBots, I don't know the actual prices for them. Frank and Son's does charge slightly over retail prices, but not by much. It honestly depends on the figure or set or rarity, but you should go there to check it out. You never know what you can find there. They have so much there. Great place if you are a nerd for anything.

    Most of the major cities have seen looting pretty consistently. I imagine you'd only want to be out at a retail store in an urban area right now if you are looking to fend off looters. I'm personally going to stay in up here in Sac, even if they haven't declared curfew. No guard out last night, but CHP and a joint force made from departments around the area shut down the whole downtown area around 9 last night.

    Yeah it just started in Manhattan Beach which isn't far from me. You should see the Del Amo mall. Buses and cargo containers block all of the entrances. Police are guarding the Target near there. I'd say a toy sighting but ain't nothing open right now. Stay safe up there.

    was able to stop by Target on Fulton a little while ago and the only things of note were the movie style Ghostbusters figures and Age of Apocalypse Marvel Legends figures

    Pico Rivera Walmart has a bunch of Netflix figures, except for Scrapface. There should be one Hotlink left (I grabbed one) and a few Megatrons. There was one Ultra Magnus, but the box was opened and missing stuff. They also had the new Cyberverse Deluxe Grimlock and Hot Rod.

    Rosemead Walmart was mostly bare, except for the metric ton of Vintage G1 Astrotrain they had on the shelf.

    Oh boy, I go looking for soap and wind up getting all the figures I would've gotten over the past few months. And no soap.

    Somewhat on topic, I've had better luck with Targets when looking for soap. Also grocery stores and pharmacies.

    The Walmarts did have soap, just not the particular kind I was looking for. Even the Target in Pico Rivera didn't have any. Luckily, I did find it at Ralphs when I went to pick up some groceries.

    For anyone still looking, Mission Valley Comics-N-Stuff at SD has a few Ectotrons for $25.99, or $28.00 after tax.
