    Grabbed a G1 reissue Optimus Prime from New Hartford Walmart. For $13, I thought why the hell not. Keeping him on my work desk.

    If anyone needs refraktor still there are 2 at the Irondequoit Walmart.

    Lots of Brunt at the Irondequoit and Webster Walmart too.

    Webster Target has a micromaster 10 pack.

    Has there been any sightings of Ectotron at any of the Gamestops in Poughkeepsie/Hudson valley? Wondering if I should waste my time with this figure.

    And I would appreciate if there are more updates about things in this area as well, so I don’t have to keep wasting my damn time finding nothing but slim pickings everytime I go out to get something.

    Fishkill Wal-Mart has the studio series deluxe with coptor Drift, car Dropkick and that other constructicon. I grabbed a singular Drift. Also a big restock of Siege Starscreams and Soundwaves.

    Question. Soundwave seems to have a G1 decepticon logo on his chest, does that mean it is the revision/running change Starscream with him? Or did he always have tyd G1 logo on his chest?

    Hey I just recently moved to The Bronx from Tennessee and am very used to toy hunting and hopping from Walmart to Walmart and Targets. Since there aren't many Walmarts and I am limited by my Metrocard I was just curious where people in Manhattan look around for new toys. I was also curious if there are any good stores to find older toys too.

    Probably the only Voyager I haven’t seen in the wild from that line in a while. He’s still available on Hasbro Pulse & Amazon for retail.

    sept 1st but it won't hit full saturation probably for 4-6 weeks after that. But don't worry about getting him, I've never had a problem getting a Walgreens exclusive. EVER. My walgreens still has one Cyber Battalion Shockwave which was the exclusive from like 2 years ago
