    Any chance you meant the NILES Walmart on Touhy, because while there are no Airazors here this morning, there are a pair of SS86 Airazors (as well as an SS105 Mirage, an SS104 Nightbird, a G2 Mirage, and - bizarrely - a Burn Out and a Clampdown).

    Oh, and a pair of ROTB Voyager Optimus Primes up top.

    Much to my shock, SS86 Ratchet and SS104 Nightbird are currently at the Rolling Meadows Meijer.

    Visited Ross’ at Hoffman Estates at 4pm and scored a pets themed Botbot pack for my daughter for $4.99 which pleased her to no end. There were a bunch of Legacy BW repaints: Sandstorm, Buzzsaw and Nightprowler (box was crushed!) sitting on a shelf near the registers. Sigh.

    The Target next door had a single BB Troop builder 4pk. A few core class figures: Bomb Burst & Starscream.

    Yes, the Niles one on Touhy. Me and my friend bought the battlemaster Airazors.

    Found a Shadowstrip and a G2 Universe Core Megatron at the Golf Mill Ross, both of which I snapped up.

    I’m jealous!

    Stopped into Ross’ in Schaumburg on Golf Rd (is that the same store?) this afternoon and finally scored a Velocitron Scourge! Need me a Crasher and Shadowstrip next.

    There was a single Buzzsaw left and a single Botbot pack in a bin leading to the registers.

    Also dropped into Alex Toys next to Ross there and found eye wateringly expensive Wave 1 and 2 figures in abundance with Deluxes sitting there for $39.99 a piece and priced same as the Voyager class (Nemesis Leo Prime and Jhiaxus)! You can nab most of the Stunticons except Deadend and Motormaster. Also literally dozens of Kingdom Tigatrons for $34.99 each.

    The Golf Mill Ross is the one in the Golf Mill Shopping Mall in Niles. Alex Toys is weird. Some of their newer Transformers aren’t ludicrously expensive (they had an SS86 Snarl for like $3 over MSRP maybe a month ago), but their long out-of-print stuff can be absurd, especially for toys that still haven’t moved off of shelves at, say, Walmart. I check them occasionally, but not very often.

    There’s a Skyquake at the Wheeling Target on Lake Cook. It you get it by 11/4, it’s 15% off. There are also some core RotB Arcees and Ironhides that look to have been recently re-stocked.

    At Ollie's in Moline today we found a Beast Wars Monopoly game set for $14.99. There were still two more after we got ours.

    is WfCGE Prime the boxmate of Ratchet? There’s one of each at the Skokie Walmart on Touhy (though Prime is headless).
