    Wave 1 looks to have gotten a restock. I found 1 set at a Walmart in SC. And 3 cases at the Walmart in Rincon. No sign of wave 2 quite yet.

    Just curious where you stay. Anyway..there is this guy called the Pharoah (sic) on Ebay who apparently gets his stock from findings. Maybe he’d buy off some of your stuff.

    Didn't get a chance to post this on Thursday but I visited the Cobb antique Mall on Canton Road. (Still don't think this is the right place I was looking for tho. Lol). They did have some nice stuff. The booth to the left had a Thrilling 30 Jetfire in Box and I found another booth toward the back that had a lot of current stuff other than Transformers. lot of AEW and a lot of Turtles and other figures you don't see in the wild much. Be warned the back booth had some inflated prices but if it's something you couldn't find( first time I ever saw NECA Metalhead) they probably had it. Got a great deal on a vintage GI Joe Cobra Mamba

    Something needed to fill the void left by toys r us and kaybee so these types of shops are popping up and I think it’s great.

    I've been having more fun going to these places than I have Walmarts and Targets. Who would have thought that actually seeing toys on shelves would be scarce in 2021? Lol

    No. This is a 87 one. Just in really good condition. Only problem is the spinning rotor gimmick doesn't work well because the pegs that hold the rotors on are a little loose. They stay on fine but just don't spin like I remember. I would kill for Hasbro to release this again though.

    Yeah that's the place I was talking about... same one the guy from the toy shop told me to go to. The only other one I know of that definitely has vintage tf+other toys is over in powder springs. That's the one that has the other toy shops in it, but they're actually just booths in the antique market.

    Either or. Two series a year usually go out in the wild, along with the low run special sets they sell off topps.com.
