    Toy Fan, why post the name of who it is on hold for? That's kinda bogus.

    No luck at the Western Toys R Us for the Velocitron set yesterday, not even a shelf tag yet. For anyone that has been calling to check the availability, how do you identify the set to the customer service person? I'm familiar with Target and DPCIs but never really had to call Toys R Us before for an item.

    My brother just told me there are 3 at the Bloomingdale Tru this morning.

    Also thanks to Dah Padre for checking the TRU near me and giving me the heads up.

    I also wanted to thank you for the heads up on the Velocitron set being at stock in Schaumburg yesterday RodimusDawg. I had the set on hold there which I picked up in the evening, if there were any left on the shelf I would have been happy to have grabbed 1 for you. Definitely appreciate the heads up from fellow board members like yourself! I'll be looking to pay it forward if I happen to see any sets in the wild.

    Anyone who picked up the set not want Nautica and/or Fastlane? Just throwing it out there that those two are the only ones I'm interested in.

    In all the enthusiasm centering around the Velocitron sets, don't forget to mention any Six Shot sightings! Do any of these latest TRUs have them? So far only the Niles TRU has had him in?

    I saw TR deluxe wave 4 at a walgreens in Kankakee a month or so ago. But I haven't seen it anywhere else since.
