    North Olmsted Target @ 15:30 standouts - Origins Wheeljack, new core class figs - the Rumble wave. Snagged my tape boi, so they are one short. Was Rumble x2, Mohawk x2, and Concept Soundwave Purple Pal x2.

    Are you by chance referring to the red/black SS86 Frenzy?

    Yes? That's why I included the link in my post.

    Apparently the Large Hadron Collider Mandela Effected me, totally not old age... I could have sworn the purple one was Rumble and the red one was Frenzy.

    Yes that's a fiery debate among collectors I think it's another toy vs. cartoon thing.

    Yeah, I try my best to stay aloof in regard to nontroversies of that sort. Is toy robot well made and turn into something cool, or something I remember? Then yes, I'll take one! If it's a cool Cliffjumper, then I'll take two please. :p

    I swear the sugarcreek target never has anything of value.

    Is it just one of those locations with low toy sales? Mayfield Heights Target in NEO felt a lot like that for years. I wouldn't find anything new there, but every so often those sluggish sales would make it a goof spot to find oddball things that sat around warming shelves.

    Speaking of - NEO people, which Walmart locations are your favorite and least favorite to hit up?

    They are feast or famine. Most all of Dayton is. They either have some of everything, or absolutely nothing for months!

    I did find Toxitron for 22 a piece! I swear it was here but maybe Facebook that I was looking for Toxitron for someone! I picked up three!

    now I just need to find another Grimlock for 22 and then I have a full 2nd set of Toxitron collection… why because why not!

    I actually find that the Beavercreek and Dayton Mall locations seem to be a waste of a trip 9 times out of 10, but I guess it's all in the luck of the draw. I was at Sugarcreek today myself and they had the exact same old stuff as 2 weeks ago, only less of it. I went to the Dayton mall location after that and they had even less, but I did have a cool chat with one of the employees who was also a collector. He said his store doesn't seem to get new stuff as often as other stores and I believe him. Shoutout to him though for offering to check the back for me without me even asking. He was able to find that MOTU Origins/Stranger Things two pack I've been searching for back there, so hat's off to him!

    This. So much this. I feel like I've won the lottery any time I actually find something I've really been hunting.

    Score I’m almost done with the collaboration collection myself!! Got in Dracula tonight!! (Actually got in two incase anyone is interested, only charge what I paid and shipping like to hook fellow collectors up!!!)

    just hit Xenia Walmart and they had a BUNCH of coronation Starscream, a sludge Blitzeing and Megatron…

    I did notice today at Beavercreek and Sugarcreek they now have two aisles to check for transformers…

    if you scan in the codes it will sometimes tell you if they have things in the back.

    If anyone is going to the Marysville toy show today, could you please let us know if it's a show worth checking out? I planned on going but lack of finances got in the way.
