    To be fair guys, its not always about being able to hit different stores. Timing is a big portion of it too. For me, I’m at work between 7:00-7:30 and usually there until at least 5:30-6:00, Mon-Fri (being salary can really suck sometimes). Sundays are almost never restock times and so that leaves Saturday mornings to try and catch something hard to find, in line with at least a dozen other collectors. Once in a blue moon a restock occurs in the afternoon, but those are few and far between. If it wasn’t for the kindness of a few folks on here hiding items so I can get to it later, my in-person finds would be almost nonexistent. I’ve seen the new Classified Joes lines in store literally twice since launch, and once was someone hid Destro for me lol. I actually had to give up on the Cobra Island line because of it (mainline isn’t far off). If it wasn’t for online, half my Transformers collection probably wouldn’t exist and I’d have dropped out long ago.

    Add in the fact we have a significant amount of known scalpers running around, I’m not saying it’s impossible, but given some folks’ schedules, it’s certainly not easy either.

    Your problem is assuming it’s Hasbro’s issue. Once the figures have shipped to Walmart or Target’s distribution systems, it’s entirely out of their hands. I’ve seen every figure in the Target or Walmart’s near me, and some have sat there for weeks, like studio series Grimlock for example. It sounds like the stores near you just don’t receive much stock, for whatever reason, but it’s not like they aren’t here in Vegas. We’ve actually had pretty decent luck with early sightings and pick-ups.
