Any Netflix Megs showing up? Or still floating around Walmart’s?
Found them at my Roses lol. Only getting them for blast effects.
Exclusives very rarely show up at discounters, because they are made to order based on what the store (Walmart) initially wanted. The only reason they do go to discounters is if the retailer cancels the order after hasbro makes the items but before they ship them out. In my 15 years of collecting various Hasbro lines i've only seen it reported a few times: the GI Joe RoC cancelled target exclusives were the only large shipment. I've seen a handful of online only exclusives (the ones that go to BBTS/EE) and handfuls of small quantities of random items, like the Walmart GI Joe RoC 2 packs. The Netflix UM mystery box was a perfect storm of bad idea, over production, and a barely wanted repaint of a toy on the shelves at the same time.
I doubt the Netflix figures will show up, if nothing else than Walmart got two distinct shipments of each wave. If they were going to show up at discounters we wouldn't have seen restocks.
No and it'll never happen. Just buy him now before his price jumps.
Or just wait for the Spoiler Pack.
I'll take them snakes if you don't want em...
Leaders are in the Ollie's ad for this week ... wonder if they're getting a restock?
Would be nice if they were getting in more than just Leaders. I have no need for more Primes and Doubledealers, but I'd sure take some cheap Plank Masters...
Restock? Leaders have yet to show up at Ollie's in my state, so this is a first.
Same where I live. I stopped by this morning and they had about 8 of each on the shelves. Didn't notice anything else new.
I'm not seeing them listed in the flyer for my local Ollie's.
Same and nothing in store for me, either.
That's good news. I never saw the leaders back when everyone else was seeing them but I'll check my local Ollie's later and hopefully snag one.
I stopped at my Ollie's right after they opened. Someone cleared out all the Optimus Primes and left the Doubledealers. I suspect the owner of the toy store down the street may have been there already. Bummer, I was hoping for an Astrotrain and I can't think of anything to do with another Dealer.
Poking around their site, it seems some location have weekly sales starting on Wednesdays and others on Thursdays. If yours is a Thursday location, they may be there tomorrow.
That kind of sucks. I made sure I was there at the open just in case, because I know there are local scalpers who were buying up everything at Ross in December and putting them right up on FB marketplace.
I have all the Leader figures in my personal collection that are for display only. However, I went to my local Ollie's once a week for 6 weeks looking for Double dealer for my son. I found 2 for him after going there for like 6 weeks. My son is young and loves the military vehicles like tanks, missile carriers, etc. I found one new ER Optimus Prime for $10 dollars for him too. The only Leader I never saw at Ollie's was Astrotrain and I want another one.
All in all between Ross and Ollie's I feel lucky that I found Siege Barracade and Siege Springer at Ross. and ER OP, 2 Double dealer, 2 Military patrol micro masters pack at Ollie's.
I saved a lot of money. I bought ER OP at Walmart when it first came out for $50 dollars not too long ago, and I got the second one for my son for only $10 !
How long ago did you find Springer at Ross? I want one but he's going for $35 online..
this was in January. Springer was the lone Transformers there. First and only time I saw Siege Springer at Ross.
Multiple third party sellers on Amazon have Siege Springer for $27 right now. Not the Ross deal of course but still a few bucks less than the original retail price.
Just FYI, If your Ollie’s doesn’t have leader class figures on the shelf, ask a employee if they have them in stock. My Ollie’s had theirs in a side room near the checkout to prevent shoplifting.
