    Chambersburg Kmart has CW Trailbreaker, Wheeljack and Smokescreen, leaders Skywarp and Armada Megatron, a few NuRiD deluxes, that huge Optimus and some 'minicon' four packs that say "special edition" on the box. Never saw them before.

    Willow Grove/Horsham TRU:
    As of this morning, there were 2 Powermaster Primes and 1 Blaster on the shelf, along with a couple of MP Bumblebees, Fortress Maximus, Wave 1 Voyagers, most (if not all) of the Wave 1 Deluxe case that went out last week, and some number of the Wave 1 Legends.

    Lancaster TRU has 2 fort Maxs, a bunch of sentinel primes, some wave 1 tr voyagers, and 3 stripes. Oh and an MP bumblebee. Not much else worth mentioning.

    Nothing at the Chambersburg Walgreens. By the time they put anything out the regular stores will have wave 2.

    Butler, PA Walgreens had Chromedome, Mindwipe, and Wierdwolf (Wolfwire) today. Didnt get any as I figured I'd get those later and was looking for Brainstorm, which they did NOT have...

    Did they have any legends Punishers? Their website said that the Chambersburg store has them in stock. Just curious.

    They have 1 Wolf Wire and 1 Mindwipe at Abington Walgreens on Old York road. I didn't want to pay $40 for 2 deluxes but I will say that Mindwipe looked a whole lote better in person than he does in most pictures I've seen. So I will grab him and his other wave mates eventually but right now I need another car (transmission problems :cry ).

    Happy hunting.

    I read somewhere that the deluxes may be cheaper if you're a Walgreens rewards member, maybe 16.99 or so (which would be on par with Target/TRU/HTS though not Walmart). Anyone tried it and know for sure?

    I'd rive to Monaca or Cranberry if you have any of them from either set of 4 still left at this point.

    Oh yeah, an entire row on an endcap (about 10)at the far end of the toy aisle. Also, a bunch of Namor, a Rogue and an Iceman.

    That's cool. It's good to know that their website is accurate.

    Chambersburg Walmart

    1x Sentinel Prime
    2x Scattershot
    Lots of old CW legends
    A few TR wave 1 deluxes
    And lots of RiD minicons.
    Lately the minicons are the only Transformers stuff we've been getting.

    Crap, I wish I'd have seen your post. I stopped there as well.
    Walgreens still has nothing.

    If you happen to see the Emperors' Wrath Vader or the Peanuts Halloween Pops at the Chambersburg Walgreens, could you give me a heads up? It's on the opposite side of my commute.

    Wilkinsburg Walgreen's has Namor, Ant-Man, and Daredevil for their Marvel Legends exclusives. I didn't see any Transformers at all, though.

    I just realized how desperate I am for new plastic that I'm checking Walgreens of all places.
    Sheesh. I need help.

    Once you start checking Rite-Aid, seek medical attention. No, not from CVS.

    You're not that bad. You can be paying exorbitant scalper prices on ebay or amazon from day one or as a preorder when you saw it. No offense to anyone who is that dedicated to collecting them all though.


    I would check walgreens if I knew where it was near my place or if I saw it and wanted Brainstorm or whatever exclusive they had. I mean seriously I missed out on the online deals for Quickslinger and Brake-Neck along with whatever retailer was selling Groove at its regular costs.


    LOL I seriously should check the one I have near me for discount transformers since I heard one guy found old Generations figures at his.

    I never pay the 'gotta have it first' prices. That's silly. I like hunting, but if I see it online for retail, then screw driving.

    As for Rite Aid, I found the old Universe Legends Cosmos and Hot Rod at the local store ages ago, a Universe Prowl at one on a road trip, and a Universe Ratchet at one in my home town when I went to pick something up for my mother. Rite Aid usually sucks, but they do surprise on occasion.
