    My question is why someone decided to swap the SS38 for the ER-based Prime. They are both very good figures and the fact that SS38 is a nightmare on the resale market

    Anyone in the Amelia area willing to grab that Chromedome and Mindwipe for me? I'll pay shipping or meet up in the Columbus area. It's almost 3 hours from me so too far too make the trip myself.

    Also, I will be in the Columbus area today if anyone sees these around let me know.

    damn I always wanted one but can’t imagine paying that. At least there’s thousands of KOs of the mold for super cheap if I ever do decide to get him

    The retro headmasters are exclusive to Walmart, right? I still need to get W2. I found them once, but couldn't fit them in the budget that week.

    I seem to recall seeing them at the Ft. Wright, KY Walmart the other day...no idea if they are still there, though.

    Hit the Brookpark Rd Walmart and Parma Mall stores this morning. They both had a handful of W2, with the tank guy from Wave 1 at the Brookpark store. Brookpark was mostly hosed. Parma Mall had a gang of Red figures and the small Kingdom figures (Megatron, Starscream, etc).

    Still seeking Soundwave.

    I think Pulse still has Hardhead in stock, but you probably need the others too.

    Wow, whowever swapped that SS-38 for the Netflix Prime really is an idiot. Even if not scalping and tried to sell for after market value he would've easily gotten over $40 for it. Guess these swappers are as dumb as they seem.

    Nothing new at Graceland Target.

    Hey all,

    Not a sighting in so much as a question. I'm moving to the Akron-Canton area and I was curious if there are many collectors there that are on here and how the supply chain is that area. Also, any classic toy stores worth checking out in the area?

    Thanks!

    You can join the Northeast Ohio Collector’s group on Facebook. It lists the toy stores and members often get discounts.

    I have a friend in the Akron area keeping an eye out for me at Walmarts, and he reports similar to NEO locations it's something of a barren wasteland.

    Speaking of which...

    Hit the Steelyard Commons Walmart. Only three of the animated Bumblebee Arcees on pegs. Toy section there mostly barren. They were restocking and I nosed around the boxes to see if there were any cases of note, no luck.

    Steelyard Commons Target had several Monkey Primes, a healthy selection of Bumblebee and Spikes, and a few Kingdom minis.

    The Toys that Time Forgot in Canal Fulton is a nice store.
