    Yeah but I got that siege over cybertron set so that trip wasn't a complete loss. I've just been combing brickseek and popfindr and the only place I can see that might have one is the walmart in Loganville. But I was searching with the assortment sku so there's a high chance they just have 6 grimlocks that haven't sold. But if another one pops up around you I'll probably go looking for one again.

    You appear to have a first sighting.
    No thread about these deluxe combiners in news & rumors.
    I'd suggest starting one yourself.

    Over the last month, I’ve been to over a dozen different Walmart and Target shopping for my kids back to school clothes, supplies and searching for Worlds Collide and Origin Bumblebee. I’ve visited many different walmart and Target stores dozens and dozens of times and I still haven’t see a Slug or Galvatron out in the wild.

    I do have both in preorders from Amazon for 10/15 delivery but I’m just surprised that with all my shopping and various visits no sightings for me.

    no, I found Worlds Collide and Origins Bee in downtown Atlanta about 2 weeks ago. I’m off 75s near morrow/Stockbridge/McDonough area. I haven’t found Worlds Collide in this area or Slug and Galvatron. After all the Worlds collide and Origins Bee sights in in Atlanta - I drove there and found them immediately. Still no Slug or Galvatron though.

    From my experience anything outside the first wave I find them weeks or months later. I saw wave three of Kingdom for the first time last month before they promptly vanished. Studio Series must be hot because they have mostly vanished from every store I visit. I visit about 4 different Targets and Walmart’s each and the Transformers sections are lint and dust.

    galvatron is starting to rollout more to Walmart’s I think because the areas around me, cumming-norcRoss 400 have been getting them so I would just not give up hope I think it’s just gonna take time

    In the same boat. I'm in NW GA just above Marrietta. I've usually been able to find stuff at Target if I continuously give the employees DPCIs but It causes major issues when they are the same for the newer and older waves like it is with Studio 86. I've honestly resorted to going online to find stuff since my hunting time has been cut down considerably now due to work. Seems like you literally have to go hunting every single day now to be really successful and beat the scalpers which is really sad.

    Found a new place right in my own back yard today. It's called Madmaks toys and they just opened this month. Some great deals to be found and they are really fair with trades. Didn't get any TFs today but I did score a complete GI Joe Headquarters set.

    The biggest people doing that are selling on Mercari and Ebay. At least with them you don't have to go thru the marketplace fees for them to make profit. He's selling Retro Joes for $18 buck that are selling on Mercari for $30 plus. I will pay a small premium since I know these stores have overhead. At least it gives folks a chance to get stuff who don't want to go online.

    He did have trek stuff but to be quite honest I didn't notice any ships. His display floor is not that big tho and I know he does have inventory that's not on the floor so I would call em up and ask.

    For anybody interested he does have another Joe Headquarters with the box that's about 85% complete.

    I didn't post all pics because his Tf section is not as large as chances. But if you guys like I will go back tomorrow and post more pics of the store. It's literally 2 minutes from me.
