    Do you happen to have DOTM Deluxe Barricade? Can you compare him to the Studio Series for us? Thanks!

    I actually did own DOTM Barricade but I sold him off a few weeks ago since I knew I’d be getting the studio series version. Sorry :(

    I wish I could tell you I went to so many stores yesterday that I don’t even know where I was but it was all along 55 and south of that. I think all the photos I took and posted here at work from target

    Anybody want a crapload of Studio Series cardboard backdrops? I'm about to move, and honestly, if nobody wants them they're gonna get recycled. Free to a good home, pick 'em up and they're yours.

    Full set of SS Wave 5 Deluxes (2x Sideswipe, 2x Barricade, 2x WWII Bee, 1x Crankcase, and 1x Clunker Bee) at Walmart in Normal on Greenbriar. Only thing I took was one Barricade (though might go back to get Sideswipe since my paycheck was larger than what I was expecting).

    Update: well, so much for that. Just went back to Walmart, and while there were literally like 15 of them there, now it’s been cleaned out to just 2 Dropkicks, all in a matter of 3 hours... at Walmart of all places :eek:  I mean I’ve heard of scalping, but Jesus :eek:

    So because you were snoozin’ and loozin’, it’s now the fault of scalpers?? I always shake my head at that being the default explanation for why someone can’t get their hands on a figure. If you bought that stuff and the next guy missed it, and blamed scalpers, wouldn’t you say that person was misdiagnosing the issue?

    not to mention ordering online which is by far more worry free and convenient for me these days on stuff I actually want. I am not fast at getting to stores so Id rather have my loot just delivered and screw the hunt.
