    I hit a lot of different types of toy convention/shows & the one thing I find that is that they are always hit or miss no matter the previous experience. It all depends on what you're looking for & you need to try to take that into consideration i.e. I'm never going to find any TFC Poseidon components in the wild (anybody want to sell some?). So what would you classify as "Holy Grail" material for collection? When I got a DX Turbo Robo I was like "This is it!", but then there was a series of different figures that claimed that title leading up to the current champion. So don't worry about what other people consider a "Holy Grail" figure. You do you & collect what makes you happy.

    I went into my local Pittsburgh Dollar Tree on Saturday and found these G1 Transformers Keychains!



    I asked them if they are going to be available in all of their stores and they said "probably". So if you have a Dollar Tree near you, stop in and look for them!

    Got excited when I saw Ultra Magnus at Chambersburg Walmart, but for the first time in my life I was disappointed to see that it was Shockwave in the Decepticon box behind him.

    I just picked up spinster and crosshairs from the Waynesboro Walmart. They were on a skid in a box getting ready to put out. There’s still one of each.

    I found 1 crosshairs at Pittston Walmart. No other new figures. Found Spinster at Wilkes Barre Walmart. 1 Crosshair left at WB in the front area with the holiday toys.
    Correction to “ no other new figures”. There is 35th Prime and Megs at both stores.

    Target in Wayne on Lancaster has one Siege Leader Ultra Magnus, three leader Shockwaves, the usual Cyberverse stuff, one set of Siege Rainmakers, one set of Siege Micromasters, the more recent SS deluxes, nothing new there at all.

    However, for you Star Wars Black Series collectors, they have The Rise of Skywalker figures out... there were two of Rey and the new little droid and one Supreme Leader Kylo Ren that I haven’t seen anywhere before. I think there was a new classic series Kylo Ren, too, but I don’t actually collect any of those figures so I am not positive about that last one, sorry.

    Hazleton Walmart: 1 each Seige Impactor and Barricade, 1 each SS KSI Boss, Long Haul, Bonecrusher, and Leader Prime. Several Reissue Soundwaves and Cassette packs.

    Also, two ML Scorpions, if you collect that.

    The only unusual things that my Walmart in Hilltown have is one of the cell shaded Megatron and the gnaw from cyber verse

    Harleysville Wal-Mart nothing special

    Quakertown Walmart nothing also. All three of the ones I went to I didn't see the 35th Anniversary stand either. Am I missing something?

    Some Walmart stores just aren't getting the 35th displays (or the exclusives)...mine (Somerset) being one of them. :( 

    Or, if you're saying that maybe they had the displays before (since you did see a 35th Megatron), maybe they moved the displays to make room for the Black Friday setup?

    The Exton Walmart didn’t have a stand, they had the exclusives on a shelf in their holiday section.

    Yeah, I forgot to post - both Warminster and Willow Grove Walmarts broke down the display and put them on the pegs/shelf. So they’re overflowing with figures, and I’ve written them off getting new ones at this point.

    Levittown Walmart finally put up the 35th Anniversary display. Lots of Megatron's, Soundblaster and Bluestreak. Strangely, no Prime.

    Display is filled out with Hound, Refraktor, Brunt, Springer, Starscream, and Thundercracker.

    Anybody looking for Marvel Legends, they restocked the X-Force Wave. Saw Night crawler, Mr. Sinister, Boom Boom, and Cannonball. Might be others. Grabbed a Night crawler. MLs are also 16.82 I believe?

    My local Walmart’s are placing the toys on the shelf area near the front of the store. No extra markings so I walked right past it last week. I wonder how many times I did that?

    The one Walmart I went to had a load of Megatrons and TC's in the front of the store with the holiday stuff, and the regular figures in the toy aisle.

    Quick question, does anyone know if Ollie's is selling Potp figures yet or Studio Series?
