    I heard four stores listed on NPR this morning, and was surprised to hear Monroeville was one of them. Especially if the perpetually-six-months-behind Cranberry location is staying around. Guess it's just the Babies R Us, though.

    Glad and a bit surprised the Altoona and Johnstown stores both made the cut!

    Altoona and Johnstown both survived?
    I'm shocked. When I used to live in Windber/Johnstown I'd frequent both constantly. Neither were that well stocked or maintained.
    It's been years, so maybe they're better now (I never go to my home town, like, ever).

    Glad Cottman's TRU didn't get cut. Horsham isn't a shock since last year they didn't anything the few times that I did walk in.

    They were on a shelf with the $24.99 tag below them. Didn't read the tag, so maybe they were mis-placed.
    I'll double-check tomorrow. If they're around $15 I pick up another Octane for parts.

    According to the list, yes. I'm in State College now, so I pop in the Altoona TRU every once and a great while, but I haven't been to the Jtown one for probably 3+ years. My family still lives in Jtown, and I stopped in one Black Friday just for S&Gs.

    I came across a PotP Rodimus Prime at the Wyomissing Target and grabbed it. Was shocked to find him there. Thats all I saw for the prime line. Other than that, it was RID and Movie figures.

    I double checked this morning and they are $24.89.
    They also have a $7 Blurr.

    Well, I was in Hagerstown Friday and Carlisle/Mechanicsburg Saturday and didn't see anything worth mentioning.
    I'm also not looking for anything at retail at this point. I was on a Mega Construx and NECA hunt.

    According to the manager at the Willow Grove TRU, they have been taken off the closure list and will NOT be closing.

    There's really nothing new out at the moment. Until wave 2 starts hitting, it's just more of the same stuff that's been out since the holidays.

    Well, they put out a fresh case of the RID warriors at Wilkes-Barre Wal-Mart. And of course, it's the wave with Windblade, not the new wave with Thermidor and Bludgeon.

    Since I do not need an army of Windblades, I broke down and picked up Thermidor and Bludgeon from BBTS. Ending the retail hunt for RID and TM figures. Now the wait for POTP wave 2....

    Shippensburg Walmart put out a fresh case of the Slash wave of Legends. That's it for interesting stuff.
