    There was a single Blot at the Walmart on 50 and Alafaya as of about 20 minutes ago. I left it up on an endcap nearby.

    I just don’t like this line; I did not like combiner wars, and this just seems like a bargain-bin continuation. The upshot is that I have saved so much money recently that purchasing third-party toys has not been much of a drain on my budget! Seeing Blot in the wild has inspired me to go home and track down Ordin..

    Oh, by the way: I am looking for Mysterio and Noir from the Spiderman legends line. Any help would be appreciated! I am afraid that I am going to miss out, these waves have been going so fast.

    The Ollie's thing could either be new stuff that never got announced as a result of TRU's closure, or just all the inventory TRU was slated to get for the 3rd and 4th quarter. Is it November yet?

    Again I ask the universe to open an Ollie's closer to southeast Florida! I'll even take Ft Pierce at this rate.

    Went by the Walmart on Misery near Nursery and Belleair. Over 1k PotP Jazz and one Blot. Grabbed the Blot and the only Tailgate. Nothing else new...wish I had been able to get there when our earlier collector and friend hit the mother load there.
    By the way, are there any of those, "Olllies," in Pinellas? I had never heard of the store until I read that some of you are familiar w/ the franchise. Thnx. And sorry for the drunk post the other evening.

    No, that's not all of them. Their map sucks because no matter how many miles you put in you get different results based on the zip code you choose, or it uses some weird combination of zip and map centering on the screen. For instance, your pic doesn't show the Palatka Ollies, but no matter how many miles I put in from my DeLand zip, I never see the Zephyrhills on yours.

    Yeah, that map does seem pretty garbage. There is an Ollie's fairly close to my house, but I live up in Ocala which isn't shown on that map. I actually went to their website and entered my zip code, just to see, and it shows the store I'm talking about that isn't on your map, but the map I got doesn't show the one near Kissimmee, even after expanding the mile radius. They only seem to want to show the nearest five places.
