    I saw some Botbots Series Five (lime green bubble) 5-packs at the Mariemont Kroger. Just a heads up in case you missed them When they were released before.

    I’m talking about Studio Series 86 Scourge, he’s blue. You’re thinking of something entirely different

    Yeah, either there's a decent sized scalper or the stores just don't get anything :( .

    Dayton Mall Walmart: RED Wave 1 figs, 1 Kingdom Primal, Cheetor, Paleotrex. & Warpath, and one Netflix Optimus Prime with the figure swapped out for the cel-shade Siege toy (but the gun and battlemasters are still there)

    Dayton Mall Target: 1 Rattrap, several Buzzworthy Garbage Truck Bumblebee sets.

    I have two questions:

    1. Is there a group spreadsheet of what everyone is still looking for at any given time? It's hard to remember who all is looking for what, in what area, here.

    2. Does anyone have any recommendations for a sightings group somewhere that covers regular (non-Transformer) action figures?

    Honestly that’s the only swapped figure return I would ever consider buying, though I’d want the original blaster

    We do not have a group spreadsheet for this thread...not a bad idea, though. We use one in the TMNT thread and it works out great. And, feel free to post any sightings in here you feel may be of interest...TF or otherwise.

    If you're making one I'm on the hunt for SS 86 Grimlock. I'm about an hour from the Columbus area and closer to Lancaster so anyone here telling me about any Grim sightings from there would help me out a whole lot.

    I found SS Grimlock at Meijer in Englewood this morning! He was the only one there, but I'd give Meijer a go as it seems like they're slowly starting to stock some things!

    A spreadsheet would be a great idea. I’ve been working slowly on a Discord group for Ohio sightings of any toy-line. We could put a Google Drive spreadsheet up in there.

    Sounds like GI Joe Retro wave 2 is popping back up again at WalMart. If anyone sees a Scarlett, I’d appreciate the heads up!

    Nothing at springmeadows/monroe st target, nothing at springmeadows/glendale/central Walmart. Even with restocking at the walmarts. The only thing of interest I noticed was 2 thrawns at springmeadows walmart

    I try to look in Target at least a few times on the way into work and pop in Walmart on the way home. Diddly squat.At least I got a shipping notice for Omega.

    Yeah, I'm still trying to get Thrust and Runabout from Target but I'm pretty sure I missed out on them. Hopefully I can get Kingdom and SS86 before they aren't available.

    One Grimlock left as of 2 PM.

    In a bit of a surprise, there is SS86 Jazz and Blurr at the "2nd and Charles" book/video/stuff store on Stroop Rd. in Kettering, for a small markup ($22.99) - in the section with other toys & action figures.
