    That's funny. Mine has two pegs full of Hot Rod. I picked up the only Military.

    Well, stunned to learn my local Five Below has been there for FOUR YEARS, and hate to think how much I have missed there, but saw a smattering of little releases there (a few I saw at Lot Less months ago).

    Plus this, which someone else mentioned, is clearly made of a plastic meant for party favors. Probably as brittle as the window of the box it's in.

    ...and for the helluvait, if you like comics, they have multipacks (just the one DW issue in that multipack though). This kinda multipack made me look for any more adult ones, but no joy there. :D 

    Have ER Bluestreak and Mirage for trade if any need.

    Several years ago Five Below had all 5 waves of TR Titan Masters. It was a big deal here when it was discovered that at Five Below the TR Ramhorn had a variant -a light brown version and a noticeably dark brown version.

    Wow. That was a blast from the past. I thought he meant Ross at first, but I remember a Rose’s from childhood. It had a cafeteria/diner in it.

    I remember Rose's (and knew that, for me, it was just "memory" not because I'd thought they'd gone out of business, but because it's regional to places I haven't lived in years).

    But, yeah, I made the same Ross/Rose's mistake, too, and was annoyed when I realized it was the one that, again, doesn't exist near where I am now.

    Yeah Roses were everywhere when I was a kid. They still exist but in poorer neighborhoods now and only sell cheap or older stuff like family dollar. There are 2 in my city. Will check it out tomorrow.

    My local Ollie’s in south GA had no Transformers. They had about a dozen Netflix ultra Magnus but now the entire section is bared.

    Went to Murfreesboro, TN Marshall’s. Nothing. I think the Cyberverse Slipstream / Earthrise Battlemaster well dried up before I could get some.

    Yes. Yes, it is.

    They were also the store whose Black Friday sales were so good that the Thanksgiving turkey jumped off the table and ran to the store. (One of my mother's all-time favorite commercials.)

    It was a holiday tradition along with the classic Eat'n Park holiday commercial, which they have aired every year since 1982.

    (It's a Pittsburgh-area family restaurant chain, FYI.)

    Another chain I didn't know about, which I learned from this thread.
