Has anyone seen battle master Caliburst and Smashdown in stores yet?
One more Commander Class Jetfire left at Macedon Wal-mart. Note that if you are looking directly at the Transformers area, Jetfire is on the bottom shelf about 5 or 7 feet to the right of the Transformers section. I almost missed them. There were 2 and I grabbed 1...so one left there as of just now.
Fishkill Wal-Mart has those G1 cassettes in. 6 of each as of typing this.
Anybody seen the Wave 4 Micromasters in Buffalo/Williamsville?
Henrietta Walmart got it all in last night.
2 Jetfires, G1 Soundwave, the tapes, and lots of Refraktors if you still need one.
Grabbed the only Soundwave and didnt see any tapes. 1 more Jetfire left
Walmart in Bohemia had wave 3 deluxes from Siege, but thats all i saw..... If anyone sees Lightning Collection Magna Defender from Power Rangers in the eastern Suffolk County Area please dm me
Non TF. Anyone into POPs, the Walgreens Exclusive Halloween ones of Herman Munster, Uncle Fester & Dracula are at the Utica location. $10.99 each.
I haven’t yet. I was able to get a smashdown from amazon, but my daughter most likely took it and forgot where she put it. So I’m on the hunt as well.
I’m also looking for a Pterodactyl if anyone sees one in the wild.
I've seen both pop up at Midtown Comics every now and then.
Found 1 Brunt & 2 Red Alerts at Walgreens in Utica. Price tag was $16.99. First I’ve seen of Siege figures at these stores. Hopefully Ratchet follows shortly.
Seeker 3 pack available at the Henrietta Target.
Does anyone know of Walmart still sells Battle Masters?
I don’t know if this is new or not but if anyone is looking or into these things I saw one at the greenbush target
Looking unlikely. Gone from the pegs at my area Walmarts.
I just wanted to kind of give this a bump. I just need to know good places to look for new Transformers in Manhattan besides Target.
Fishkill Wal-Mart has those cyberverse deluxe figures including Gnaw and Soundwave. I think they're also included into the 11$ pricetag too.
Welcome to NYC! I saw your earlier post a few days ago and had meant to reply to it but it somehow slipped my mind. Whoops!
Manhattan is, perhaps somewhat ridiculously, a fairly dry area for hunting. Apart from Target, your only real options are Forbidden Planet, which is near Union Square, and the three Midtown Comics locations. There is typically a higher markup at Forbidden Planet but it's also more likely to restock things that sell out. It should be noted that neither of the aforementioned try particularly hard to stock anything beyond recent Siege, Studio Series, or MP releases; as such, Target is still your best bet if you're into the other current lines.
You could also try visiting Image Anime. The last time I checked, I saw a few fairly recent Masterpiece figures and some Takara Tomy movie stuff.
There's FAO Shwartz, tho the last time I was there it was nothing but Studio Series Voyagers and Cyberverse.
Yeah, ever since TRU went under, I almost exclusively buy TFs via Amazon.com. The Targets are shockingly-poorly stocked in Manhattan, and the one time I found some Tfs I wanted to buy at the Atlantic Ave Target, the line was literally stretched around the store (no idea why) and I left the figure behind and walked out.
Seriously, it's been more than a year since I last bought a TF in the city. The PotP Battletrap duo.
Oh, yeah! I completely forgot about FAO Schwarz. The only thing of interest that I ever saw there was a PotP Predaking.
I'm one of those people who prefer to buy figures in person - I tend to be picky about paint apps - though it's becoming so difficult to actually find anything that I feel as though I should probably go the Amazon.com route, as well.
