    Homestead Target had decent stock of wave 3 TR last night. Deluxes, Legends, heads.

    Shippensburg Walmart has two Optimus and Megatrons, both with that spider security thing attached. That was weird.

    So I checked at the Johnstown TRU about the Velocitron boxset today. I got in touch with an employee who was able to look up the item number. Not only was it not in stock, but he informed me that they were ineligible to receive the boxset. I asked if he knew why, and he said the decision was "above his paygrade."

    The store that I work at got a case even though we're not eligible for them. I'm not sure eligibility matters.

    These are why I'd call the "Not eligible" shenanigans. It's an exclusive, I doubt there's a TRU out there that wouldn't at least get one case of the set.

    Nah, someone grabbed one between the two of us.

    Side note, if anyone wants Quickswitch and/or Nautica I'm going to give people around Enola/Carlisle first dibs.

    Well dang, I guess at this point retail plus shipping isn't too bad of a deal.

    Walgreens near Montgomeryville mall had an empty spot for Titans Return for over two weeks, on a whim I talked to who I guess was the manager and he scanned it and ordered what I hoped would be Topspin or Kup...
    It's now a deadzone for a long long time. Blurr Skullsmasher and Highbrow. No one will ever buy those. I'll never see wave 4 show up there now. *has a sad*

    Where you ask? Well I have good news. They are hitting the Pittsburgh area again. Sadly none in the north hills but south hills, Washington, cranberry, beaver, and monroeville have all restocked.

    UGH, I was holding out hope they'd get something new, but their app has said they have 2 in stock for those 2 weeks - now it says "Not Available" at all for them.
    The funny thing is when I was in there when the 5 they had disappeared, I asked a worker who was restocking and I pointed to the peg, she was about 6 feet away (no way she could see it) and before the whole question was completely out of my mouth she barked "NOPE! No more of those." I wonder where the 5 they had went...
