    Vernon Hills is very picked over at the moment, though the Burlington has a $20 Coronation Starscream, and Ross has one apparently-unnoticed $17 Velocitron Scourge.

    Visited Ross in Schaumburg near Woodfield again at 5:30pm today. Completely picked clean except a bunch of Botbots including pets and gamer packs at front bin near checkout. Shelves were barren and ransacked. I have terrible luck at this place.

    Admittedly I have been to so many Ross stores in past week (at least a dozen or more), from the outermost towns out west, to locations within Chicago. From what I’ve seen, the Transformer sightings have been sparse in the last week. Velocitron figures have seemingly dried up.

    Day 16 of checking Ross stores on the way back from work and no Arc in sight, just tables full of other big toys. i though the FX Lightsaber would be the rarer big toy but I've seen that multiple times.

    Nothing new to report at St. Charles Ross, just the usual Buzzsaw, Nightprowler and Sandstorm. Seems the supply of Transformers headed to Ross has pretty much dried up, at least around me.

    I live in the New Lenox area and I am willing to travel a bit of ways. Has anyone found a SS86 Snarl in the wild?

    Thanks! I will keep checking around the stores to see if I can find one since online is no dice. I keep finding Sludge after Sludge on the shelves. Poor guy was either overproduced or not too many people want him.

    I was reading about the knee issues. I still have mine in the box and need to check him out to see if his knees are okay.

    If anyone does spot one, I don't mind driving to the neighboring areas and will go as far as Schaumburg area if they have ones.

    I grabbed the lone core Snarl at the Mayfair Target in the City. Still there are two Noah Diazes, two DotM Bumblebees, one core Slug, and a Dreadwing.
