    wow. I did not know about that. Where are you at ? Is there a lot of theft at your local Ollie’s or crime in your area?

    I dunno. I don’t think there is that kind of issue in that area, that’s just what the employee said. They still have like 12 of those Ultra Magnus Spoiler Packs on the shelf along with a bunch of other stuff that’s probably easier to steal. My guess is it might be a recent issue or they caught someone trying to lift something, idk. First time I’ve seen that store do that.

    My Ollie’s had at least 20 OPs and Doubledealers this morning at 9:30. Came back out of curiosity just now and it was cleaned out. Pretty crazy.

    I’m really close to the Ollie’s in my city today and I was considering driving over since I’m at the doctor already. I don’t need any of the Leaders though so I’m not sure it’s worth it. I went last week and they had no TF items but they did have the Mega Man Battle Network Trading Card Game decks????? (It was just such a random, OLD thing to still be selling lol)

    I guess I’ll have to see how I feel after sitting in the waiting room for like two hours.

    Man I wish my Ollies was that helpful. I saw the add in the flyer that came in the mail yesterday and went over to the store to find empty shelves.

    Asked an employee to check stock, he said they couldn't because the "deal hadn't started yet" and he "couldn't just go in the back and give merchandise to customers ahead of time"

    My town's Ollie's has been closed for a few weeks while they moved locations. Grand opening was today, but...no Transformers. Nothing in the flyer. Disappointing. I just want a damn Double Dealer.

    I saw that some Ollie's change ads on Wednesday and others Thursday so I decided to wait until today just to be safe. The good news is my store did get leaders this time. They had a whole endcap with the sign. The bad news is it was empty. I asked an employee if they had some in the back or somewhere else but he said someone came in early yesterday and basically bought them all. I'm bummed that I missed out on a discounted Double Dealer or Astrotrain but not the end of the world. They're still available a number of places online for MSRP so it's not like I can't get them. Oh well, live and learn. Happy some people here are finding them. Just FYI, some general discount and deals websites have been posting about this Ollie's deal, so a lot of people who don't necessarily buy Transformers all the time are likely to hit Ollie's because it's a big savings and Optimus Prime is a character a lot of people are familiar with. If you have an Ollie's nearby and want one of these figures, I'd try to get over there as soon as you can.

    Ollie's gets the good stuff. Arcade1up machines, Transformers...

    Next best one is ROSS, which I at least have in my area. But it's so hit or miss these days...

    Yeah, it's more than a little irritating to keep seeing updates and know that the entire Western side of the country is being left out.

    People will steal from anywhere, given the chance. Considering most Ollie's stores are an absolute mess/in disarray, it's a rather easy target. Usually crowded, the aisles are a mess most times, and the cameras are usually on the older side. You'd be amazed at what the brazen of society can pull off in the right crowd.

    Ollie's needs to update, stat.

    Yeah it's also posted on Transformers Earthrise Leader Class $20

    If someone came and bought them all it's most likely a scalper. If it was a collector they would have only gotten 1 of each. I'm surprised that they have Optimus as it's a well selling figure. I have an Ollies 30 miles away but I don't think it's worth it for Double Dealer. That's 60 miles round trip and what if it's not there..

    They got Asteroids and Centipede and were selling them for $129. Good luck finding them, though. The A1U community caught wind and gobbled most of them up a couple weeks ago.

    Already posted this in the Ohio thread but I'll repeat here, found a mountain of OP and Dealer at the Ollie's in Forest Park OH this morning. Worth a look.
