    Looked like 2 full sets of Legacy Deluxes (wave 1 only, not the beast repaints) at the Walmart in Moline IL as of about 11:30 today.

    Unfortunately I think at this point it's a lost cause for red alert. I nabbed mine when he was available on their website a few months ago.

    Yeah. We missed out on Red Alert. As with Sunstreaker; I'm in a similar boat. I some how broke one of the wheels and I need a replacement since I glued the previous one in place.
    Also. Has anyone found Core class Spike yet?

    I ordered my Spike right from the Pulse and he arrived in 2 days. Have not seen him in stores. But Legacy wave 1 is pretty much everywhere right now!

    I will be hitting the stores next week looking for Sludge. So excited to find Sludge. I will probably buy two or even three if they have them, if anyone is interested in a meet up. I would sell them to anyone from this board for no mark up. I would certainly be willing to drive to get him early, so if anyone wants to snag one for me...

    Darien Walmart
    x4 sweep

    x5 legacy bulkhead
    x7 studio core ravage
    x5 studio core shockwave
    x3 legacy core iguanus
    x1 kickback
    x1 dragstrip

    Passed up on dragstrip and kickback......just felt they are too expensive for that scale...might pick up when there's a price drop or clearance.
    Just focusing my limited budget to save up for ramjet and dirge for now. Happy hunting!!!

Marvel Legends, the new Retro He-man figs, vehicles and playsets, Toy Biz, Bowen and Diamond statues and lots of comics set in to lots. I'll post again next week with some preview images.

    Non-TF... Target on Elston had a ton of Masterverse Faker on clearance for $10.49 on an endcap... Good price for those of you who may want an extra to display in one of his other forms or for anyone who wants to use his orange armor on Masterverse Mer-man, customize the red-eyed He-Man head, etc....a few Rise of Evil 2-packs on the shelf beneath him for around the same price...

    Almost all of Legacy wave 1 were present, including Laser Prime... Didn't see Blaster though...

    Didn't see any Junkheaps or Sludges or any MOTU:O wave 9

    Anyone see any of the Walmart exclusive Legacy Beasts in Chicago or the surrounding 'Burbs?

    target also ran a sale on the origins as well the last couple weeks, deluxes were 11 and base figures were 9. I caught up on quite a few that I missed out on, but I have not spotted any of the new waves yet.

    Yup ..I grabbed an extra Andra for the masked head and cloak, an extra Clamp Champ for an alternate Sun Man head, and an extra nude Stratos to army build... Faker was still full price at that time... At least he was online and at the Target that I grabbed those other 3... Come to think of it, those 3 aforementioned figures rung up full price...I got them to price match through the Target app ..

    I had a doctor appointment before work yesterday by Fox Valley Mall and made myself late cause they put Ollie’s in the old Toys R Us!!!! It went right after opening. Aside from ER Sunstreakers, Runamucks, Airwave, Arcee, Smokescreen, Allicons and Starscreams nothing major. I grabbed Sunstreaker and Runamuck which I desperately needed and a Starscream since they didn’t go recolour crazy like previous Seeker molds. My buddy text me to grab him an Allicon but when I got back a guy was scanning stuff on his phone and piling them in his basket. Another guy had 2 baskets full of stuff like Stars Wars and Monopoly games. I wound up working a double shift so have been wiped out and didn’t get to go back and see if Trailbreakers or Fast Tracks got put out since they were absent. Another buddy went by today and said he saw no Transformers so they must not have restocked. It’s nice to finally have one in the area!!

    Nice. My old TRU was the Joliet one. Living down the street I’d always ride my bike there and not even going to buy, just spend a lot of time hanging around those awesome 80s toys.
    It’s cool to go into the “skeleton” of the Old TRUs when they reopen. The Joliet one always becomes a Spirit Halloween every fall.

    That Child World building is still there. You can see the castle outline of the building. It was a gym at one point but now it’s a Sky Zone trampoline park. I was trying to remember where that theater was that used to be there. The office building still is.

    Sunstreaker was $12.99. I had a 15% coupon that worked on those. I think Arcee was the only one that was $9.99. Even they knew.

    Damn scalpers... It's still quite a drive for me, so thanks for posting the bad news. Anyone else miss the days before smart phones helped idiots scalp random stuff? :banghead:
