    I hate it when people hide stuff like that. All this fear of “scalpers” crap is ridiculous. Remember these are TOYS for KIDS. I’d rather a kid get a bumblebee than have to go on internet scavenger hunt to find one.

    I do think the scalper problem is real for sure, but some of the places I find the toys is a little silly. I was in target today looking for stuff and saw the Star Wars TVC Armorer and another guy saw me looking and gave me the Mandalorian he snagged as he said he already had one... To me that is what its about... and lets not forget the kids... especially this time of year.

    I’m no scalper, I don’t even troop build. Wave 2 Netflix will be on the shelves for a year. People hiding figures takes the joy out of their he hunt.

    Hey guys it’s all good. You know, I get the point about hiding toys but it’s only like 3 or 4 of us..lol. And I did it only for one day. What we can do is buy an extra Transformer for toys for tots. Get these Shockwaves or Red Alerts outta here outta here.

    I put the bee up, but there were at least two elitas, so I didn't think so stick one up there with him.

    Hell yes. And if you're in McDonough Dave in electronics and stocking hides stuff to be scalped and for himself. I never could find a beachhead or Cobra Trooper thanks to him.

    Most recently I was there at 7am on Dec. 1st to get Runabout and the Mandalorian Black series with the Child. Both were hidden in the back. One employee managed to find the box of TFs and brought me one. Eventually they ran into Dave stocking over in electronics and all he would tell them is that he "located" the Mando packs. He never would go get them even after they pulled him to the back. I had an employee tell me he was showing them off days ahead of time too. Targwt never could find them and then around lunch popfindr showed it drop by 1 unit. Then sometime around 5pm all of them suddenly disappeared on popfindr. So because of Dave I've missed out on GI Joe Beachhead and the Mando with the Child 2 pack.


    Anyone spotted Thrust yet in GA?

    Waycross has 1 each of wave 2 Netflix Deluxe after I got Elita-1 and a second Bumblebee because of QC issues with the first. Also saw one Soundwave on the shelf and a box of Netflix Voyager wave 2 on the top shelf. They also had 6 H.I.S.S. tanks and 4 A.W.E. Strikers. This is the fist I've seen of the A.W.E. so far. May bit if they hit clearance but otherwise not going that rabbit hole yet.

    My second Bee has a lot better QC. The chest on my first has bad paint splatter and when transforming to vehicle mode feels like I'm about to break it. Since it is clear plastic that is very possible.

    Barrett Parkway Walmart had 2 Elita ones amongst the other WFC wave 2 releases. Bees were nowhere to be found.

    Is Siege Omega Supreme getting a second release? I was checking prices to pick one up second hand but I see preorders on BBTS for a December release.
