    Picked up Draculus at the Evanston Target on Howard... store listed them as in stock, though they didn't have them out on the floor...an associate ran to the back and grabbed one for me...according to the app, there should still be 3 left. Also had a bunch of galvatrons (at least one w/correct shoulders) and one each Kingdom Ultra Magnus and BW Megatron...a bunch of core class (no Soundwave)...1 each Mosquitor and Clamp Champ for you MOTU collectors...

    Buyer beware... If you're picking up Draculus in store then make sure you slide open the box and check the condition of the actual figure before you buy. Since I bought one online and did a drive-up swoop I didn't check mine until I got home. The paint on my copy is HORRIBLE. Half the silver on his head crest looks scratched-off and one of his eyes has a large black dot as if someone took something sharp and poked a hole. There are some other notable paint blemishes on the hands and chest. It's rough. Too rough for me to ignore. Going to have to return/exchange tomorrow. Luckily it looks like the Moline store still has some stock.

    The paint stuff on this sure seems more like damage than it does a factory error. I'm sad and scared to think that this could have something to do with this new open-package/no window style of boxes and that we might see more of this kind of stuff in the days ahead.

    Just consider this a heads-up on possible issues.

    You might be able to find them at Ross now. The Earthrise version at least.

    Otherwise I know Hasbropulse has them in stock.

    Morris Wal Mart had a bunch of core class figures, on the pegs and in the holiday toy bins. They had megs and prime an others, including Soundwave, who I have never seen in stores until now.

    No Blaster or Tigatron, but they had a bunch of the new retro Beast Wars stuff. The selection was pretty good, but nothing SUPER new or fresh.

    Hello, Chicagoans! Looking online, it looks like Chicago has a surprising number of vintage toy stores. If you could recommend just one or two stores to visit for vintage Transformers (and other classic toylines, like Masters of the Universe or Shogun Warriors), which one would it be? (Especially for someone who already owns about 200-300 vintage TF's and is looking to possibly get lucky and plug a couple holes in his collection.)

    KA-POW? Quake? Smash?

    Great places! Google their store hours so you don’t make the trip for nothing.

    They’re kinda near each other too. Good luck.
