Don’t think there have been any yet, but online orders were up last week.
100% Quake. Otherwise toss up between KaPow and Toy de Jour
Not as of yet.
Toy de Jour
2532 W Fullerton Ave, Chicago
Times Past Collectibles
1450 N Ashland Ave, Chicago
Great places! Google their store hours so you don’t make the trip for nothing.
They’re kinda near each other too. Good luck.
Found the new Studio Series Soundwave at Plainfield Walmart. They had two and I took one
Dixon walmart had studio series soundwave and the new packaging studio series hot rod.
Heads up that walmart has the current batch of beast wars reissues on clearance.
stores don’t seem to have them marked in store yet, but the app will pull the clearance pricing up if you have any issues.
Got a Voyager Tigatron today at Target and there was plenty more to go around between Chicago Targets. Saw it at Elston, Peterson, Larabee, and Ashland.
Ashland also had one or two Gnaws
I feel so behind on shit. Finally grabbed a kingdom core soundwave and prime, they had both at palatine target and pretty much all the other new stuff.
Guess Im finally hitting the brakes with tfs, going to really focus on trimming the collection in 2022 (both tfs and video games) and having a smaller but meaningful collection.
The past 2 years have been insane, went from leaving a great paying job to working at a gym during the pandemic. Been really challenging but Ive lost over 120 lbs now, so hopefully no heart attack death in my 40s. Just really hoping the new year brings new work, as I got to reset myself physically but yeah now its time to get straight on bills and other real life crap
Wow 120lbs! I jealous, but yeah good health goals. Good for you J!
I've got an extra sealed Gnaw from the Studio Series 86 line that I'll trade for the new Walgreens Kingdom Red Alert. I'm in Rockford if that helps you to know what shipping might cost or for an in-person swap.
The store will not match the online price. Only if it’s available for pickup thru the app at the store you’re at. Found a SS Soundwave Saturday at Rolling Meadows Walmart and Pipes deluxe wave at Mount Prospect Walmart.
That’s interesting. I was able to get the price matched at the Montgomery Wal-Mart. The manager that was assisting the associate said something about being available online, but she looked at Cheetor, Primal, and Megs and said they all qualified ($24 and change for Megs and Primal, $11 and change for Cheetor). Rattrap was marked down in store to just under $20, but that was the same as the online price.
I wonder if we will still get Tigatron and Scorpinok?
Thank you to @Wreckgar and @Omega FQ for the vintage TF store recommendations!
I visited Ka-Pow, but unfortunately they didn't have anything I wanted. Pretty crowded store in terms of merch, hard to see the trees for the forest.
Toy de Jour, though, was a delight, very nicely organized and well laid-out, and while they didn't have any TF's I needed, I picked up a Terror Claws Skeletor and a Gammorean Guard.
(I wasn't able to make it to Quake, sadly.)
Found Tigatron yesterday at DeKalb Target. 0 left, but start checking targets.
2 Tigatrons and a Rhinox at Skokie Target
Have y’all seen Kingdom Pipes in south Chicago/ South suburbs?? Also Bumblebee Soundwave??
I’m traveling to Chicago from Dallas! Any great toy/collectibles stores in Chicagoland?? Looking for WFC Siege/Earthrise/Kingdom and some Titans Return & POTP! Thanks y’all!!
Found both Pipes and Slammer last Thursday at Tinley park Target.
Thanks bro!! Appreciate it!!!
