    Last night I checked out Slackers near home in my search for Ratbat/Rumble. Didn't find them, but I did find...

    Holy crap. Sadly still too rich for my blood, but I've been Doordashing for extra money and once the bills are paid...it will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine.

    For those who don't know, Waxpax Records and Toys / Quake Collectibles West in Roselle is having a 49% off sale on all items. Today only. I saw a Siege Red Alert hanging on the wall. I got myself a Siege Hound, potp Pounce and Wingspan, some Beast Wars guys, a foc Skywarp, and some boxed Starwars figures for toys for tots. Stop by if you're in the area. Take care!

    Awesome sales there, but you have to be ready to go the same day they announce it. I happened to go on Saturday when it was 25% off, got a MIB La Hire for $60.

    They said they'll probably have a Black Friday sale. But most likely it'll be less than 49% off. They have a fb page that they post to consistently.

    Found Apeface at Pontiac Wal-Mart today. Didn't see anything else super new, though they did have a couple Impactors and a couple Mirages still.

    Uhh... guys? Apeface has not been reported as spotted in the US as of yet.

    Someone should report this. There's a news credit with somebody's name on it.

    Pretty sure he was spotted in Indiana a week or two back. It's just been a long lag.

    Yeah I was wondering the same thing. I went back a few weeks and don't see that a US sitting was ever posted to the front page but I also know I'm not the first person to find Apeface in the wild because the was a post in the Indiana board yesterday. Maybe since he was released on Amazon last week (how I got mine) it was no longer considered newsworthy.

    Eh, perhaps. Still, great to know he's out there! Going hunting later while Black Friday shopping - hoping I'll get lucky!

    Good luck bud. I got one store this morning when I went out for coffee but there is no sign of Spinister, Crosshairs, or Astrotrain around me.

    Jacksonville Walmart had two each of Spinister and Crosshairs as of Wednesday night. I bought one set and left the others. They also have restock of waves 1, 2, and some Mirage and Barricades on the shelf. The spot for Leader Siege figures was empty but I’m hoping there will be an Astrotrain or two there today or tomorrow. Overall, the action figure section there is very well-stocked. I was impressed.

    Found one Rumble and Ratbat set at Springfield Target off Veteran’s Parkway yesterday and picked it up. They had a pretty good selection of everything else, including the Seeker 3-pack.

    Did those target micromaster sets go on discount or something?

    They all sold out around me.
