    Did anyone hit up the Valley Stream Walmart just now and snatch all of the G1 Optimus Primes? I was about to go and in the last hour it went from 6 in stock to Limited Stock...

    Does Limited Stock mean there's still 1 left?

    Usually. In my area, Target New Hartford went from zero Siege Deluxes in stock forever, to two Skytreads this morning!? I’m guessing the rest were sold out the back throughout the past weeks, much like the Black Series Archive figures!

    Question: I’ve found Siege leaders twice now in Rochester, but I ordered them off of Entertainment Earth already, it’s my first order with them. Are they common to cancel orders? I’ve never had an order cancelled in my life, until I ordered the Vintage Transformers from Walmart, and now I’m gun shy. Should I just buy the toys at retail? Or be patient and wait for Entertainment Earth?

    If the order was cheaper than retail plus ny state tax then wait. You can also consider your time as part of the cost if you end up going out your way.

    Tangent, that's how I ended up with 2 skullcrunchers when TR started. Only showed up at retail only after it was too late to cancel online. Went to cancel and got a shippment email instead.

    Depends on what you want to spend. Let’s say you find them at Walmart. $49.97 each + 8% tax. That’s $53.97 each, $107.92 total. Right now my EE preorder is $88.93 total. Free shipping & oddly only charged $3.40 for tax! The reviews are in, I’ve held each Leader in hand, just not worth $50+ in my opinion. My advice, patience on the EE order.

    Fishkill Walmart has a few of those g1 optimus figures as well as siege micromasters and cog.

    They DID have a few siege voyagers yesterday, or the day before, but I passed. I was hoping to sneak the leaders before telling you guys, but someone swiped them before me.....

    Out of curiosity does anyone near up state NY collect or play the tf card game. I've been looking for groups to play with but haven't been successful yet

    Thanks all! I was really just curious if Entertainment Earth is prone to cancel.

    I’ll just be patient for my order.

    Looking my order over. There’s a cancellation button on the page when I click on my order number. Looks like no worries.
