    That Optimus wasn't tempting to me at all. I like the gimmicks, but would probably get bored with it in an hour or so.
    I did pre-order everything else revealed, plus the next wave on Amazon (Slag, Gnaw, Wrek Gar, etc.).

    If Hasbro really wants me to give them $600+, they can give me another chance to buy Unicron. I prefer the transformation process of my Transformers to be hands-on.

    Interesting... ok I was just wondering. I am probably the odd one out than. I thought unicron was impressive, but I just could not see the value in it. Different this time with prime. But that’s what is nice about the hobby. So many options!

    WOW, that’s the most inventory I’ve ever seen at one Target!! I think I’m moving up your way, York has nothing.

    I’m going out to the York Hobby Lobby tonight, I’ll let everyone know what I find as far as the transformers models on sale.

    The other day they had six SS BB Starscreams and a case of Black Series Boba Fetts.
    May seem like an awesome stock, but this store was dead for a long while and only now started stocking.

    Shippensburg Walmart had a case of the newest Kingdom figures (Airrazor, Huffer...), and a few Netflix Deluxes but no black Ironhide.

    This weekend in the Beaver Valley area, I was shocked and surprised to see the stock levels at the Walmarts around there... Cross the border back into Ohio and nothing. (Hermitage PA Walmart was pretty empty, too. Aside from Cyberverse and a handful of SS86 Grimlocks.)

    Baden had two full cases of Kingdom Leaders, the Arcee wave of Cyberverse, SS86, and Kingdom Deluxes (just to give an example). I skipped Monaca, but stopped in at Chippewa Center, old stock but at least stocked.

    Heck, even University BLVD Walmart near the airport in Pittsburgh had wave 3 Netflix Deluxes. Cross the border back into Ohio? Nothing. A handful of figures across the lines, not even enough to fill the pegs/shelves. WPA was like walking into TRU back in the day when they were good, coming home was like walking into TRU when they were closing. Ouch.

    What leader wave did they have in Baden, if you remember? Me and another board member have been looking for Magnus in the area.

    It was indeed the Magnus wave. Two of him and Megatron. Case fresh, too.

    Yes, apparently in Economy/Baden. I'm in Erie for a few days so I can't confirm if there are any left or pick one up.

    I was at Baden Walmart Saturday morning around 9 and there was no leaders out whatsoever because I've been looking for a Magnus myself

    Nothing on sale at Hobby Lobby for the Flame Toys tonight. Spoke to a guy stocking the aisle next and he said they went off sale Saturday night at midnight. He said they are slow movers so they will be on sale again soon. The York store had Optimus, megatron starscream and bumblebee. he said to check the app Monday mornings for the latest kits on sale.
    Thanks,

    You could also use their app and get one of their big coupons to use for one. Can't remember if it's 40 or 50% off.

    York Walmart is a ghost town except for a few kingdom Arcee and the usual bumblebee stuff.
