    Interesting. I wonder what's making them randomly jack up prices... I'm guessing someone's going online and checking secondary market pricing.

    If anyone can hook me up with this Bumblebee set, I'd gladly pay for the item, tax, shipping, appropriate finder's fee, etc.

    Also, anyone still finding BotBots at Dollar Tree? I checked my store, but came up empty. I did find a cool Cyberverse calendar for a buck, at least.

    Man I'd stock up. If Hasbro doesn't bless the Diaclone fans with yellow and blue repaints, the aftermarket price on him is going to skyrocket.

    My own area Ollie's are finally getting a little stuff in. Lots of ER Micromasters, a very few Rungs and Slitherfangs, and about four SS Arcee bikes were on the shelf yesterday.

    Man, I'm not seeing any of these at my local Ollie's. Just a Micromasters. No other Transformers or even Marvel Legends. Maybe it's because it opened only two months ago? I hope they get more stock in soon...

    ROSS is apparently struggling to get toys (I don't know if it's shipment related or vendor related).

    Ross (and Marshalls, and TJ Maxx) typically only stock toys at Christmas and Easter. While they do occasionally get some toys year round, most years its a huge drop in mid November, and a smaller drop a few weeks before Easter.

    This is normal.

    Make sure and check the whole store. My local ollies had the transformers as well as other toys set up on an island towards the back of the store away from there normal toy aisle.

    As coybrafett mentioned, sometimes Ollie's will place toys outside of the regular toy aisle, especially when they get a large shipment. A few weeks back when they had the Marvel Legends and Studio Series figures in the ad, that's what mine did. The other thing is some Ollie's (like many places) are having staffing shortages right now. People can't break down pallets, stock shelves and work the register at the same time. Your store might have some Transformers in the back, but just can't get to them until the weekend or when they have more people.

    The last thing is your area may have a lot of other collectors, which is cool, or resellers, which sucks. Fellow collector's are probably going to buy one or two of a figure. I love running into a fellow collector, even when they end up buying the last one of something I wanted. It's fun to chat for a minute about what they think of a recent figure, or commiserate about how hard it is finding a certain figure, or give a tip like, "Did you see the Walmart up the street has Gnaw? There's three left." It's all the stuff we do here in the forums. Resellers/flippers/scalpers aren't interested in that and probably could care less about the figures they're buying. They're buying as much as they can just to profit and I'm pretty sure Ollie's doesn't have any purchase limits. It's hard to get to the store before people who have nothing else to do but drive around all day buying action figures to flip.

    No deluxes or voyagers spotted on my last trip to Ollie's but they did have some new Micromasters which weren't there before and a Luke Cage two pack. It doesn't look like there's any action figures in the new flyer for this week.
