    I know it's a bit of a long shot, but does anyone in northern IL have a non-apple tablet they're looking to get rid of? Hoping 10"+ with 8GB of RAM. I've got some TF/Lego stuff I can toss in for trade in addition to payment. Hoping to pick up this week if at all possible.

    I was back by Ollie’s again today and no TFs to be found. My buddy went the next day after opening and only saw 1 Arcee. Looks like it wil be a wait and see what they get. I think August is when they overload toys. The Laporte? And Lafayette Indiana ones had massive tables and tables of stuff around then. Just love having a local one when stuff does hit.

    1 Perceptor, 2 Studio Series Arcees and 3 Ironhides on the cart at Gulf Mill Target but they also aren’t ringing up.

    Thor figures at Schaumburg. Also this guy if anyone was looking

    Found a lone Blitzwing at the Walmart in Skokie on Touhy by McCormack a little after 10 pm tonight... Almost missed him (he and a lone Legacy Galvatron were further down the aisle from the other Transformers)... Had to do a double take to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me...

    Morris Walmart had 1 Blitzwing, which I snagged. That's the second local sighting in the last week; a good time, perhaps, to go out and look. Good luck!
