    Hey guys, there’s a toy collectibles shop in Southampton called “The Toy Cantina”. Really nice place with nice workers. Whatever you’re interested in, Transformers, G I Joe, Ninja Turtles, they have new and vintage. I found a freaking Animated Blitzwing! So ummm… go there.

    We're all just waiting for the reset to be competed.
    Or even started.
    Then those skids in back with all the in-stock toys can be unleashed.
    Sadly the scalpers will be right behind the unpacking.
    There's only one real solution.
    But after the pokemon fiasco, they won't let is camp out in the aisles.

    Picked one up, there were five left on the shelf. Watch out when you go to checkout, he rings up as $27.49. You may be able to do a price match with the online price, I was in self checkout though and was in a hurry.

    They've been ringing up for more in a few places, mostly downtown locations in bigger cities. First I heard of it was in LA. Guess it wasn't an isolated incident. Mine was $22.99 in Cranberry Township.

    From my understanding the price ranges between stores, as some locations apparently mark up prices. Stores that sell TFs at regular retail will have him at the new $22.99 Deluxe price.

    Also, for those that run into a Target selling at a higher price, double check the price at Target’s website and they’ll honor it.

    I did the pickup thing for the World's Collide set at that same Target yesterday only for it to decline like 30 minutes later. But I wasn't surprised.

    Shippensburg Walmart has a Netflix Seeker and a Primal, a Voyager Primal and loads of Kingdom wave 1. Also a good number of Netflix Deluxes.

    App and now not showing up as of 5 minutes ago.

    I hate Target with a passion. If I were on top of it, days would pass, I decide to relax and wait until tomorrow to check... gone.

    This place has zero formula on how they stock their shit.

    Also, only got 1 in, because that's smart business. Sorry for the vent... just miss the days when you walk into a place and see a full stock of something.

    East Greenville Walmart - complete joke of a reset, majority of the pegs/shelves are still empty, only things of note:

    2x Kingdom Voyager Optimus Primal, 1x Cyclonus
    Gijoe retro 3.75 2x CC, 2x Duke, 1x Lady Jaye
    1x Revelations He-man left from the stand alone display

    Nothing at Cheltenham Target and nothing at the Abington one despite what's showing up on Target's App.

    I did pickup some Gorilla glue and some juice as to not go home empty handed though.

    TRU

    Stores that sold......toys.
    Not groceries, greeting cards, automotive.
    Not shoes, tv's, clothing.
    Just toys
    Specializing in toys.
    Focusing on toys.
    The selves filled with toys.
    Now they're trying to sell empty shelves.
    Just sad.

    This is Australia.
    Toy World.
    Pay attention Walmart
    Pay attention Target.
    We're tired of the sad.
    The empty.
    The excuses.

    Still, I feel like even places like Walmart and Target did a better job stocking items 10 years ago, hell just 3 years ago.

    Maybe because there was a Toys R Us to drive competition. Think of it like WWE, they've been pretty much garbage since they bought out all of their competition. Now, no reason to make up good story lines, who else you're going to watch?

    I feel like without TRU, it gives these stores more reason to fuck the dog, because where else is there to go? Walgreens?

    Toys don't yield that same profit margin as milk, eggs, tape, etc, so we're just left like dogs, begging for scraps. Of course no one is going to boycott these places because of exclusives.
