    Lots of restocks in Framingham today:
    • Target had 4-5 Shockwaves and two Ultra Magnuses (Magnii?)
    • WalMart had a full case worth of Wave 2 Deluxes

    On an unrelated note, 5 Below had a full case of Series 2 Mega Construx figures.

    There are two Chromias at Walmart in North Reading. No other Wave 2 Deluxes and no Voyagers, though.

    Found a lone Siege Voyager Starscream at Walmart in North Adams and a lone Deluxe Chromia at Walmart in Pittsfield; North Adams had no other new TFs and Pittsfield had no other TFs at all besides a Studio Series Dropkick and some Botbots. So, miraculously, Siege Wave 2 is starting to show up in Western Mass!

    Last Saturday I saw Wave 2 Deluxes at Springfield, Ware, and Chicopee Walmarts. No Voyagers yet.

    I used to live in MA a decade ago, in a trip here, and what happened to Newbury Comics? No comics, just funco and hipsters

    Started getting into the hobby, got WFC Optimus and Megatron at Worcester WalMart, Sludge, Snarl, Jazz from POTP and Gen Cyclonus from Toy Vault Marlboro as well as Grimlock from Newbury same city. Wondering, any product around MA at places like Big Lots? Would love to find a Trypticon or pretty much anything from Combiner Wars or Titans Return but fearing it's too late for a newbie like me

    First off, I love Toy Vault, I grabbed a couple figures there this past week as well.

    At this point, comic book stores and the occasional TJ Max or Marshalls may be your best bet for Combiner Wars and Titans Return. But, if you're willing to fork over the extra cash, most of titans is still on Amazon and eBay is a good friend if you know what you're looking for.

    Long story short, for older toys check out comic book stores or find them online cause I've never had luck finding a lot of things I want in person (save for current releases)

    Thanks for the tip. Found Overlord (no idea who he is but looked cool and was $17) at TJ Maxx in Worcester. Any other figures seen from those lines in the area? What does Marshalls usually carry? Also scored Voyager Starscream and Soundwave at West Boylston Wal Mart as well.

    Searched all of the southern part of Central MA for anything new and no Ironhide wave anywhere I could see. I know of the Toy Vaults, Comicazi in Somerville and Command D Comics in Dracut carry Transformers, any other comic stores in MA I should visit particularly if I am looking for the last few years worth of classic themed stuff?

    That's E in Worcester and Fitchburg carry some goodies. It's been a while since I went, so I don't know what they have in stock, but I know they got a cabinet for them

    Anybody here manage to grab this:

    *CURB ALERT* kids stuff vintage toys

    My brother saw it on the New England TF FB group and sent it to me a little before 8PM. I drove 40 minutes to the address knowing full well it was likely gone, but I had to try.

    Thank you

    Ooops, the post has been deleted. It was a Craigslist ad wherein someone in Shelburne Falls, MA. had put G1 Fortress Maximus, Galvatron, Trypticon and Scorponok out on the curb for free.
