    Yeah, our District Manager (she covers roughly 3/4 of MA) is rather paranoid about thieves. Insists that we need to put "Spider wraps" (the security device you mention) on anything that expensive. I always hate the idea of the wraps, especially since they also use store stock items to fill online orders. (meaning: careful if you're a MISB collector, you might get a damaged box from the spider wraps)

    She's paranoid, man! But if someone wanted to steal a spider-wrapped box, they could just make a run for it out the door! Then go to Home Depot for some wire cutters.

    Possible. I'm not positive on our spider wraps, as I've never seen it occur, but I've heard that our models have a "tension alarm". If cut, they supposedly set off their high pitched scream.

    Framingham TRU has no Generations deluxes (seriously, they fly off the shelves here, Habro pay attention), but like, the biggest collection of Voyagers I've ever seen since RoTF. holy cow. It's like they opened every case they had and put it on the shelf.

    They had:
    A ton of Whirls
    A bunch of Double Dealers
    Several Rhinoxes
    A couple sandstorms.
    One blitzwings.

    If you want a Whirl, you'll have no trouble getting one here.

    Interesting find at a "Christmas Tree Shops"

    Was very surprised today when I stopped at the "Christmas Tree Shops" in West Dennis.. Sad part is, I never found this Legions Class G2 Megatron (or his wave-mates) ANYWHERE else. There were a few others but on bottom shelf. Didn't have time to rummage through the bin.

    Funny what you find in discount chains when you least expect it.

    Happy hunting! Northborough Toys R Us had the first wave of AoE deluxes; a Slag ( I REFUSE to call him Slug) a couple Scorns, a BB, and a four or five crosshairs ( the new BB I dread). I picked up the Slag and left the rest.

    No sign of the other wave mates.

    Saw the age of extinction deluxe wave at kmart in saugus. Not certain of the price. Anyone spot cosmos or swerve yet? I've been checking targets often.

    Northborough TRU had those 1 step AoE transformers a number of Grimlock & OPs and 3 or 4 Drifts. They're about the size of legends commanders if not a tad bit bigger.

    The place also had a bunch of scout sized, Slag, Grimlock, and Strafe constructbot kits too.

    Just saw Whirl and 2 Rhinoxes at Hadley Target. That's the first evidence of any TF restock in quite some time. Every other price point was pretty desolate though.

    Thank you

    Target Danvers had AOE leaders. Saw the boxes, thought they were voyagers at first, haha.

    Also a few of Rhinox and Whirl.
