    Eh, I've found stuff there in the past. Kind of helps it's within walking distance of my house.
    But yeah, their prices have never been good in comparison to nearly every other store.
    I'll probably hit them up during the closing sales for some clothes or whatnot.

    We need an IKEA or Cheesecake Factory in this area. Maybe the Kmart location would be good?
    Wishful thinking...

    Except for the people losing their jobs. That always sucks.
    On topic, found SS Hightower at Mechanicsburg Target. They also had Dropkick and Drift along with the Micromaster 10 pack. Took a chance on Drift too.

    I thought the sky was falling when TRU pulled the rug from under me. I was wrong. The grass is greener on the other side. I just had to be forced to look there.

    Just came from Willow Grove WM. No Soundwaves or cassettes. I know I'll never spot these around here so not even gonna bother wasting any more time looking.

    Not really. Less competition is a bad thing. No TRU, no Sears, no Kmart, just Walmart, Target, and Amazon.

    I don't know about you, but considering all of those have automated operations and in time will find a way to get rid of humans altogether, I'm not sure we should be celebrating it.

    Maybe the place is a dump, I don't know, I've never been to Chambersburg, but it is someone's livelihood. Period. Let's never forget that.

    Here’s to hoping Toys R Us’ planned revival works out well for them. Two stores planned to open later this year in NJ and Texas and their website will be going back up. I kind of feel like us (as a collecting group) should see what they have to offer just for the exact reason you state in your comment. Less competition is bad and people need to forget about the TRU that was and give them a chance. Maybe they can correct all the bad things, maybe they won’t. But having the exclusives in one place and having TRU around did make it easier to find things. Now? If you miss the shipment to Walmart or Target, you’re pretty much screwed. And I may be 41, but I don’t prefer to buy things online. Amazon has lost my package multiple times and I run the risk of the package arriving damaged. I like finding it in the store and knowing the condition of the item before I make that purchase. Call me old fashioned. I accept it lol

    It's actually one of the nicer Kmarts. I've been to a few that were rather disgusting, but this one seems to be taken care of by some decent employees.
    Yeah, their prices aren't competitive, but they did have some good stuff every so often.

    Target on Jonestown Road in Harrisburg is a gold mine! They have the Copter Drift SS Deluxe wave, Cyberverse Cheetor, the newest wave of Warriors with Deadlock and Gnaw, Ark Optimus, the Rainmakers and Micromasters.

    I got the last Leader Studio Series Optimus.

    This isn't exactly a sighting, but I wanted to offer to locals in the Philadelphia area before posting anywhere else that would involve shipping. I have an extra MP-44 Optimus V.3 due to arrive this week from Japan. I would take $400 for it if someone could meet me in the area to pick it up. Please let me know if interested or have any questions.

    You could almost take this literally. I think there’s also a Chromia, some of those vinyl non-transforming figures and the huge Cyberverse figures.

    Shippensburg Walmart has a few WW2 BB SS wave figures, some leftovers from the Brunt Siege wave and a load if Voyager Soundwaves and Starsceams.
    The clearance aisle has one SS Sideswipe. The box looks damaged, and there are parts rattling around inside. Don't know if it's defective or just on par for the SS line, but it's there for $14.

    My Trailer Prime is going back. Damned thing had two left gas tanks, making truck mode transformation impossible.

    Happily found Ultra Magnus at my target, besides his stress marks when getting him out of the box(not caused by me, already there) I am happy with getting him.

    Just got my Refraktor Recon Team from Pulse today. Am I missing something or is there no way to have the camera mounted steadily on the tripod? If anyone has any input!
