    Saw two of these at Ritchie Hwy Target. But they were street dated.

    You would think, with the release date supposedly this Sunday, they would shut off all shelf dates this weekend of all weekends.

    Thank you for this post! By the time I got there, there was 1 left. Tigatron was always my favorite character from Beast Wars and I’m super happy to have this figure now.

    Hi all, new poster here.

    I will start taking photos of the transformers section when I visit the store, but no signs of Blaster at Columbia or Hanover Walmart's as of 8am this morning. Was hoping to find SS Sweep, but none of him either. Not like I have a scourge to go with him though. Hanover had pretty good stock of various things, but nothing I hadn't seen in the area for about a month now.

    While I had other toys as kids, G1 Transformers are the only thing I pay attention to. The legacy-remake power rangers, ghostbusters, He-man, and GI Joes do bring back good memories though.

    Appreciate the welcome.

    Wandered over to the Laurel Corridor Target and Walmart around 8:30pm tonight.

    Target had Megatron and Twrecks of note. I know some of you collect He-man, and I've never seen a better stocked section of it.

    The walmart had a rhinox and a bunch of old school beast wars for those interested in that. That walmart is my least favorite in the area. Always mega-disorganized. However, I'm slowly renewing my interest in childhood pokemon cards and they've had the most interesting selection I've seen in the area.

    Hopefully these thumbsnails are clickable and you can see them in full...

    Those pictures are very much clickable to see in full.

    Do you generally toy hunt in the Anne Arundel/Howard County area?

    Hi CrazyLegs,

    I don't go hunting too often, but when I do, its in and around Columbia. Sometimes I venture a little further out and sometimes I just say F it and preorder/order from BBTS. Sometimes I think that the few extra bucks from them is worth the savings in timing jumping around stores.

    I can also say I've been to every Ollies in the 50mi radius, lol. I usually only ever want one of something and it has to be G1. The Ark? Not interested. Beast Wars? Not interested, so don't fear, I am not competing for everything lol.


    In any case, I don't go often, but I stopped at the EC Walmart and got one of the two sweeps there. Both boxes had a crease in the front left, but I don't require mint boxes.

    Also, something I hadn't seen before was the RED series bots such as:
    -Megatron reforming,
    -Cheetor,
    -Arcee, and
    -Optimus Primal.

    Neat idea, but not for me. This was at 1230pm today.

    The Cockeysville Walmart had at least 3 Wreck-Gars and 2 Sweeps along with a bunch other Studio Series and BW Reissues. The Target was comparatively bare. 20211207_162437.jpg 20211207_162602.jpg 20211207_164346.jpg

    Just found someone’s potentially stashed Slammer and Pipes at the Walmart in Arbutus. Picked up Slammer left Pipes if someone else wants him, he was up on the top shelf midway down the aisle (where I found him originally).

    Ellicott City has core class figures for $3 each. I picked up a Soundwave but I saw prime, Megatron, the green dinosaur, starscream, and more Soundwave. They’re right at the front door facing the entrance. Also saw pipes and slammer. And air razor. Go go go!!

    White Marsh Walmart has a lot of the usual shelf-warmers but they also got one Slammer, two sweeps, one Rinox, one SS Sideswipe, and one Wreck-Gar.
