    Good job! Did you get any of the POTP figures from New Hartford Target?

    Picked up POTP Slash, Windcharger, and Beachcomber from the Latham Target an hour ago.


    I'm honestly surprised a set was still in the back, as I thought I was making the trip only to be disappointed. :lol

    11/26 is Targets set date, not sure if there is an official street date or not. Most stores have been cool with pulling the figures out of the back.

    How much are the clones going for at Walgreens? Debating on going the eBay route as who knows when I'll see them here.

    Over the weekend, I hit the Monroe WalMart and Target as well as the Middletown WalMart, Toys R Us and Target (I wasn't there when that shooting happened, thank goodness). None of them had any Power of the Primes stuff out. In fact, it didn't even look like the restocked for the holiday shopping madness.

    One case of POTP Deluxes at the Eastern Hills (Williamsville) Target on Transit Rd. as of 10:00 last night. An employee got them out of the back room for me. I took one Slug and one Swoop.

    $22 I think is what I paid in Queens.

    Also, I should add that I don;t think they're worth it. The QC isn't very good. Pegs don't hold their alt modes together and my Cloudraker has one wing that doesn't go up all the way.

    Hi! Sorry to interrupt but this seems like as good a place as any to ask...

    I'm visiting NYC from Minnesota next week and have a few days to wander around the area by myself. I figured this would be as good a place as any to ask about fun local shops that I could check out if I want to see what kinds of vintage figures are out in the world (I visited Midtown Comics last time, so that's on my radar already).

    Appreciate any suggestions!

    Went to Walgreens in Queensbury and found the clone set, they had 5, bought one and left the other 4. Any Capital Region sightings of Topspin and Twintwist? That's all I want from the TR line up.

    St. Mark's Comics (St. Marks Ave. between 3rd and 2nd Aves., they have vintage stuff from time to time), Toy Tokyo (2nd Ave. near 5th Street), Image Anime (West 37 St. between 5th and 6th Aves., mostly Japanese figures).

    That’s lame. I just checked the Titans Return dpci and it still comes up.
