    The Rosemont Ross has two each of Skullgrin and Crankcase at $8. This is the first time I’ve spotted the latter there.

    Forgot to report, saw four Code Reds at the South Elgin Target last night. Even with the 20% off sale, $37 is too steep for me so left all four there… did snag the only Earthspark Nightshade, however.

    The Ross just down the road had 5 Crankcases, 3 Buzzworthy Terrorsaur, 2 Road Haulers, 2 Road Rockets, a Clampdown, and a bunch of the Walmart Legacy Beasts. Think it was the most TFs I’ve ever seen at a single Ross.

    Ross seems to be restocking, at least a bit. I've noticed a lot more Transformers stock in the last week.

    Definitely. The Ark seems like it was a one-and-done shipment (and a very scarce one at that), but everything else seems to be back in even greater numbers than before.

    Good to know, I was thinking about popping over later! Did you happen to notice anything else interesting, outside of Transformers? Joes, Marvel, Star Wars, etc

    The Golf Mill Walmart in Niles has 2-3 Earthspark Grimlocks, which I report because I haven’t seen him much at all in the wild.

    I believe I saw a few Black Series Archive figures at Ross? I don’t collect Marvel/Joes so, no idea what’s hot or new there unfortunately, sorry.

    That's alright, I'm realizing now I misread what location your post referred to anyway haha

    Anyway, I found Cosmos at the Elston Ross in Chicago last night. It was the only Velocitron Transformer there and it was just sitting on the shelf, I was shocked.
