    nothing new in my neck of the woods but Cosmic Ghost Rider is apparently showing up at Gamestops (not online) so if anybody sees him in central Florida, please let me know! same with the Stepford Cuckoos at Walgreens -- Marvel Legends collecting is starting to get annoying again ...

    Apopka Walmart had somebody return what looks like two cases each of the new Super Skrull and Demogoblin waves-- loose, banging around in the boxes with no internal clamshells... no BAF obviously, no extra parts (though both White Rabbits had their umbrellas), now priced at $14. However, you’ll be relieved to know that according to the scalpers and the people who preorder all their stuff online by the case, Central Florida is not currently having any problems with bad actors at retail.

    as i said before, there's a full case of the Demogoblin wave on the pegs, only with the BAF clearly stolen from each package. the lovely people at the Rinehart Walmart have them priced at over $17. i see stolen pieces and messed-with packaging at nearly every store i go to in central Florida so i don't know what those pie-in-the-sky types are thinking.

    Nothing new at New Smyrna Walmart.

    Their Marvel Legends section is... well... I haven't seen any there since the M'Baku wave. It's pitiful.

    Waterford Lakes SuperTarget had the new Cyberverse Ultra wave. I grabbed the one Clobber (aka Lugnut's kid sister) they had left. Neat figure and one of the few that's worth the $20. The armor works well and folds up completely out of sight and she even has a gun.

    I know this probably isn’t the “correct” place to post this, but I figured that it’d be the most convenient. Looking to sell a sealed MP-10G (Ecto-35 Optimus Prime) for $160 cash or F&F (basically, just what I paid). Box is huge, so I’m looking to only sell local (Orlando, near UCF or Lakeland, if on the weekend). PM me if interested. 76CE535F-ED4C-4215-A8A8-8D2F29421BA8.jpeg

    SOLD

    I’ll make it appropriate:

    Hey, guys! I spotted an Ecto Prime locally in the central Florida area. A private seller is asking $160 or thereabouts. Message Seahawk, they’ll have the details.

    Anyone in the Tampa Bay/Wesley Chapel Area have any luck with finding Earthrise figures?

    We're planning on hitting up Disney tomorrow, I'm curious if Earthrise will be in the shop in Japan at Epcot. The markup will be 3x retail, but they'll still be fun to see!

    Unlikely. The last time I was in there (maybe 2 months ago) it was cleared of all transformers. Mostly Pokémon, Dbz and niche Japanese toys

    I was there last weekend. They had some random seige figures. But no earthrise figures.

    They only had Pteraxadon, Rung, Singe, Megatron, Thundercracker, Spinister, Sideswipe, and Crosshairs at Epcot. Oh well.
