    Respect the hiding game. Ever since someone stashed a POTF2 wave in a turtle shaped swimming pool in Toys R Us ;) 

    Have there been any Walgreens Red Alert sightings in NY?

    Sounds about right. But at least every Walgreens will have multiple copies. Shouldn't be hard to find.

    Since you're posting a pic if where it is, you could have put it elsewhere too. Maybe a place less likely to have been accidentally found.

    Feminine care products comes to mind...

    Like someone else said, Oct seems more likely, and I am seeing a flushing out of old SG/ER stock from the warehouses in WGs and DRs.

    I found a Hoist and Brunt none too long ago, but I could tell they had been at that store a long time, as some Mirage's I saw elsewhere. Seeing Six-Gun might give hope also being from Wave 2, but Ratchet's really long in the tooth compared to most out there now in WG. That Six-Gun has probably been there awhile vs. being flushed out of the warehouse recently.

    Are you really suggesting what do you think is a better place to hide it?

    Don’t get me wrong I’m not upset I just find it a little funny.


    .I used to work loss prevention for stores like Kmart and Caldors , We used to find it very suspicious when someone would take something from a specific department and walk around the store with it for a long time and then come out of a different department without it

    Not saying your suggestion is a bad idea but I just find it a tad bit easier and a better tactic to just quickly hide it in a near by aisle behind a larger box item rather draw attention and suspicion Of the stores staff

    I just wish I had seen the ratchet at least once

    Canandaigua Ollies had several Earthrise toys.

    I had to work the Syracuse area today, and found Worlds Collide! There is two left at the North Syracuse Target and one left at the Clay Target.
