    East Greenbush Target is a barren wasteland.

    I asked the girl behind the counter. She said a lot of people were asking and calling, but they had nothing. Computer didn't show it as available. Another guy checked the back room and found nothing.

    +1 just drove out from Cobleskill, and was told the last one sold an hour before I got there. Also checked Clifton Park TRU, they said they didnt get any, but Colonie/WolfRd had gotten 8 in that morning. Bwah

    I was there a bit after 2, so it probably was 1 when the last sold. The woman I talked to seemed sincere, but I still dont really trust any of the workers there lol.

    Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately, a scalper nabbed 5 of them. My brother got the last one for himself, but I'm still empty-handed.

    I say we make it an organized effort by the TFW board to buy every single masterpiece Soundwave that comes into New York City. Only to be distributed at cost plus shipping. The anti scalper movement

    I would like to do the same with folks in the area from Poughkeepsie and further south. I live in Poughkeepsie, work in White Plains and sometimes go to the TRU in Yonkers and Times Square.

    Weedicron - you are my hero man, thanks for posting this! I've been Oliver Twist levels of poor and haven't purchased a Transformer fig in forever. I absolutely needed this guy and I knew I'd have no chance of secondary market prices...

    Funny thing, but I actually went to Bay Shore around noon today (1st time this year) and left because I didn't see anything. Got home, saw your post, kicked myself, called to reserve, and am enjoying him now. Much appreciated!

    (there was one more behind the CS desk when I left)
