    Ross @ 13300 S Cleveland Avenue & Cypress Lake (Cypress Trace Plaza, S Fort Myers) had barely anything on the toy section in rear, nothing of note. Still no Gundams.
    Up by the registers, they had Legacy 4 x Buzzsaw, 3 x Sandstorm down to $5.49 ea; 1 x RB CHeroes Optimus. There was also SW Mandolorian Retro 2 x Asohka, 1 x The Armorer. And that was it.

    I had to miss Megacon due to a cold but it did save me a lot of money!

    Has anybody seen any Masterverse or Origins stuff at Ross lately? There are reports in other states that some of the newer figures have shown up but it looks like we're out of luck on the east coast.

    I saw the Masterverse deluxe New Eternia Beast Man and Revelation Skelegod at the Seminole Town Center Ross up in Lakeland Saturday. But those are very old.

    Looking at the site front page back to January 12th, I don't see Scrapheap as a new sighting. It seems like you are the first. Message Black Convoy about it.

    I saw Scrapheap 3 days ago along with Starscream WFC X 2 at Target Walters Crossing Tampa. Figured people had found them at Gamestop already...

    Looking further back, GE Starscream & Scrapheap were found at Gamestop in Canada on December 31st. Scrapheap was sighted in Taiwan on January 8th, and that's it.

    Edit: Missed GE SS & Scrapheap showing up in Australia on January 25th. Oops...

    Got to the Target on Hillsboro & Powerline (Deerfield Beach) and found the closest they had to something new was barfing up a Legacy Voyager Bulkhead. I have no idea how they still had stock from 2 years ago.

    Going back to the Target on Congress & Old Boynton (Boynton Beach):
    20240210_143332.jpg
    I finally got the Magneous I was looking for (the one on the peg behind Chase was a 2nd one), so my previous sighting at this Target (w/2 Windblades) was likely a full case of Deluxes with the ones that were there today being the rest of that case. That left:
    Deluxes - 1x Chase, 1x Magneous
    Core - 1x Energon Megatron, 1x Bouldercrash, 1x Tasmania Kid

    Don't worry though, this Target managed to dig something old out of the back too.

    In the lower-right you can see an SS86 Coronation Starscream. That really is bad comedy.

    Edit:
    Geez, Did Targets put in special storage in the back a couple of years ago to hold TF Voyagers long term or what? <smh>

    Indiana resident popping in. I'm headed to Homestead, FL at the end of the week and might have some time to check out a toy store or two. Any good recommendations? Appreciate the help!
