    The Wal-Mart in Worcester has the G1 reissue minibots. They are in the large yellow Bumblebee movie display in the middle of the isle near the toy section. They also have the Cyberverse Optimus Prime with the trailer.

    Wow. HasbroToyShop not only have Wave 1 Siege deluxe toys in stock today, they're $9.99 each and there's a 15% coupon and free shipping over $15. With stupid MA tax, I ordered all 4 for $36.09.

    Leominster Wal-Mart has G1 reissue minibots. They are on pegs in the Isle with the regular toys. They are in the same isle as the other Transformers, but on the opposite side of the isle, just wedged into the middle of other toys. Why they could not have put them with the other Transformers is anyone's guess.

    Danvers Walmart has all the mini bots. They're in the Bumblebee movie display out in the middle of the main isle, by the bikes/sporting goods.

    Just got the Siege Micromasters and Targetmasters at Holyoke Target. There was at least one of each left. They were one aisle away from the rest of the TFs and facing the opposite way.

    Thank you

    I saw them both for the very first time late last night in Rhode Island at the Warwick Mall Target. They only have 1 each. I did not buy them. The paint jobs were just so-so on each one.

    Still with the elite paint apps huh....Better buy them soon instead of waiting your normal 8 months to purchase them like you use to do with the POC Joe figures. Then your running around trying to get someone to find them for you.

    You want a lamp for that shade?

    From 25th to Now, the only POC Joes I needed help getting were POC Wave 5 Steel Brigade and Cobra Trooper. Never saw them in stores. Shadow Viper helped me with those two.
    The other Joe figures I've never seen in stores were ROC Kamakura, Renegades Storm Shadow, Retaliation Ultimate Duke, and Retaliation Cobra Ninja/Trooper. I eventually got a Duke and Storm Shadow. Still need Kamakura and the Cobra Ninja/Trooper.
    POC Wave 5 Jungle B.A.T. I eventually found randomly at the store one day and then I grabbed another lone B.A.T. from Smalljoes, which he found behind a shelf while digging through his warehouse one day.
    Everyone else from the POC line I found in store, including the ToysRus Exclusives, and the rare waves 4 and 6.
    As for paint apps, I like my things to look neat, as they should, I'm paying for them after all. If I see a toy with sloppy paint, I pass on it. It saves me money in that moment and leaves one behind for another collector.
    You may not think it, but I was very on top of Joes collecting back when they were out. I checked many Bennys, and Tuesday Morning, and TJ Maxx, and Marshalls, BigLots, Five Below, Christmas Tree Shop, Target, Walmart, ToysRus, KB Toys, Kohls, Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, both Time Capsules, and the Toy Vaults.
    The only places left were Dollar General and ROSS, which at the time, we didn't have.
    Looking back, I did quite well. I got what I wanted, how I wanted them. On my terms. To my standards. No regrets, no complaints.
    I don't HAVE to report these sightings. I don't HAVE to inform folks and snap pictures of an item's condition. But I do out the goodness of my heart, because if the item isn't up to snuff of what a fellow collector wants, then I figure my information can save them a trip to the store and some gas money.
