    Found this today at GameStop in Manteca California. Not sure if GameStop counts as a retail store or not. 20230325_170602.jpg

    Someone actually found it at a California Gamestop last week or something in I think. Either way, nice to know that he's out.

    So Gamestop is not considered retail?

    I personally wouldn't, which is kind of why I'm iffy on the Wave 2 Deluxe news being front-paged. I'm not sure how the news team considers it though.

    I mean, GameStop is technically retail since their main purpose is to sell video games. If that’s not retail, what is?

    Not really. It’s certainly more specialty and their distribution doesn’t typically mirror that of the Big Two.

    Kind of goes back to the days of the Big Five Vs Market Six. Many of those players no longer exist, but the same idea of smaller retailers outside of traditional national distribution channels applies in the minds of many.

    Can I be front paged? Been here for over 10 years and haven\'t been front paged yet.

    GameStop just kinda sells a lot of random "geek" crap, 95% of which most geeks wouldn't GAF about.

    They occasionally do sell TFs and Gunpla but the vast majority is stuff like Funko

    It’s also at the GameStop in the Westfield mall in Paramus, NJ. Saw it yesterday

    I live about 3hrs away and was in town getting stuff for my kitchen remodel. Passed on not, but it looked cool

    Man this is frustrating. I only live a couple hours from that location. All the GameStops near me just cleared out all their Transformers. I doubt they'll be getting.more.

    I honestly don't see why not. It's a retail store that's right next to a Target in my area. If it's a preorder for Gamestop then clearly that's a deferent story.
