    Does anyone know of a TRU that's got Skullitron on the shelves? I passed him at the time, but for $10...

    I’ll see if I can get Prime Madters when in the city tomorrow.

    I’ve been to almost every TRU and haven’t seen a skullitron

    Have you by chance noticed if any of the TRU's have any decent Star Wars Lego's or any Lego's left? I've been to Niles, and it was a wasteland. Melrose is my local, it still has SOME stuff, but I haven't been to any others.

    Check out the North Riverside TRU. They still had a decent selection of Legos there when I stopped by on Monday.

    Last week I saw a decent amount at Niles but yesterday it was a wasteland as you said. They got a ton of Batman movie Batmobiles but all gone now. Still wasn’t worth the $50 tag. The only other place with a decent selection was Elgin but again, that was last week.

    Even less stuff at BloNo Meijer and Walmart (Greebriar). The wave 2 prime masters at meijer are gone and walmart has nothing. Unfortunately, that swapped slash is gone :p

    Toys are 50-70% off, but the stores I've been to (Schaumburg, Golf Mil, Burbank) had no transforms left or any toys...except star wars stuff.. plenty of that still.

    60%. Although most don’t have a thing left. However I’m working in Wisconsin lately and that one has the Last Knight Exclusive Prime figure in multiples.
