    I know! It’s like a Quadra 700? I was tempted. The extra arm is weird, though. Pack it with a Raptor, not Arnold. What’s he gonna use it for, holding onto his own butt while he types?

    Folsom Target usually had better stuff although they have small shelf space but since they don't have much backroom; the crew always pushed everything out as soon truck loads. Currently i think they still have tons of wave 1 Kingdom deluxe.
    Hunting toys without driving is difficult unless you are good in calling their customer services and getting stuff hold at their service desk... I 'd rather order online if that is the case.

    Does anyone regularly check the Milpitas Walmart? It's the only one sort of close to me outside of the crappy Mountain View one. Wondering if I should bother checking there every so often.

    Generally the restock days in the area are Thursday and Sunday, but lately they have been getting trucks everyday. You've got to go to Target with the DPCI and ask if they they know when they'll get what you're looking for and then go when it opens.


    I go to that Walmart often. It sucks. Unless you can catch them restocking the shelves they usually have nothing.

    Used to go to that Walmart all the time when I lived in San Jose. Like Soupy says, it sucks. I've scored there a few times but not enough to recommend anyone to go there.

    you'll know that any particular Walmart in the bay area becomes bad and hardly stock anything when you notice their toy sections have been scaled down.

    and worse...if you pass by a the men's clothing and you see socks, underwear, and undershirt, (even trousers) are locked up in a glass cabinet

    makes you even wonder why you even shop there or even visit walmart.

    the one on Folsom St is pretty close to the Van Ness MUNI station, just about three blocks walk...from the shared BART/MUNI Civic Center Station it's quite a bit further (and the neighborhood a bit dicier) but still walkable

    Bridgepointe Parkway target didn’t have many transformers besides 3 ss bumblebee starscreams.

    Their neca section had the usual Jasons, annabelles, a King Kong, and a bunch of back to the future stuff. No turtles. They had a full row of ultimate Macready if anyone wants him though.

    Ah okay good, I won't bother then. Every time I've gone there I've seen people having screaming matches with store security anyway - glad to not take the risk of running into crazy people :D

    Hesperian Target on Hayward has nothing new for transformers. For DC Mcfarlane stuff, there is still 2x DM Supes and 1x DM Robin King. Enjoy.

    One set left of the TMNT Frogs (Genghis and Rasputin, I think) at the Jefferson Target in Culver City.
