    Unfortunately, no idea. I work on the east side of Manhattan (one day a week, WFH the rest), and just happened to be in the neighborhood on my way to dinner with my partner, so I only popped in briefly.

    Edit: I’ll probably hit up their Grand Central and Downtown locations over the coming weekend(s). I’ll report my findings if they have anything else interesting.

    If anyone is still looking, the Medford Target was actually swimming in Studio Series Leaders Slag and Grindor, Kingdom Leaders Ultra Magnus and Galvatron... sorry, didn't check the shoulders, since I already have a Galvatron with good shoulders... and Kingdom deluxe Tracks, Waspinator and Shadow Panther. I came home with the lone Core Class, Shrinky-dink, Soundwave, I saw on the pegs, although there might've been more.

    Rotterdam Wal-Mart actually has core class figures.

    Both Soundwave and Starscream are available, as well as Prime and an over-abundance of the radioactive green dino-fossil.

    The others ARE out there - Canandaigua has THIRTY Stiletto! :eek: 

    And nothing else o_O 

    So still looking for Colonel K...

    All three stores had them in different places, so now I wonder if Webster had something and I missed it...not going back tonight, though...

    Henrietta - main toy department
    Greece - one of the pallet-style displays
    Canandaigua - a "stocking stuffer" "rolling cart" display

    FYI, Hero’s Hideout has the Hasbro exclusive Ravage set available on their site. Also, shattered glass Blurr, Goldbug and Megatron. Hopefully more new TFs to follow.

    Snagged the Megatron. Thanks. It is shipping from Holyoke, MA. So these might be for that store.

    They have a point system. So you earn your own coupons.

    I actually did find a 10% off coupon (XBOX), but thanks!

    Got Ravage for a few dollars cheaper than I got him for at Pulse. :D

    Sorry to ask a question in your sightings thread. Is Forbidden Planet NYC a good place to buy from online?

    No luck :(  They do have a few Bug Bite, a Deep Cover, and a Hubcap, though :cool: 

    Also a ton of Warpath, Tracks, Scorponok, Wheeljack, and Fossilizers :eek:
