    Where abouts in PA are you? I’d consider making a trip up for that if you’re not terribly far out.

    Sadly, that’s a bit beyond my roaming range. I’ll PM you for details though!

    Are they really going for that much???
    Sheesh, I sold Fangry and BB to someone looking for them for $45 shipped. Wasn't looking to make money and just help out a fellow collector, but wow.

    Saw Kingdom Cyclonus at the Shippensburg Walmart this morning, as well as the Netflix Seeker. Nothing else noteworthy.

    These retail price increases, growing scarcity of stock in stores, and resulting increased scalping is really putting me off from continuing this hobby. Who wants to burn $3.25/gallon in gas driving around to find absolutely nothing on shelves?

    Abington Township - Target
    Transformers
    Only note worthy thing in the Transformers Section was a Cyberverse Titan Iaconus - (I already have one so it stayed.)

    Jurassic Park
    Lots & Lots of brand new Jurassic Park stuff! Including all new Amber Collection! :drool: 

    Clearance Section
    I scored the Ultimate X-Spanse on clearance for $8.99!!!!:rock

    I would definitely be aggressively checking all of the Target clearance sections, and back end caps! Lots of good stuff on clearance! All ridiculously cheap!

    Happy Hunting!

    Thanks! I was definitely shocked to say the least. I think it must have been literally floating around the toy section, until it was finally buried in the clearance section, beneath an unholy amount of Jurassic Park Legacy Collection Packs! Digging through all that stuff, discovering the set, and digging it out literally felt like an archeological excavation! I definitely got a rush from it!:lol

    It was the first time I've ever seen one at any Target myself, was definitely an unexpected find.

    Chambersburg Target:
    Some of the BB two-packs and a couple of Origins BB's. That was pretty much it for TF's.

    GIJoe movie figures were there, but just the gimmicky stuff.

    New wave of Marvel Legends. Can't remember the names, but I saw some I hadn't seen before.

    Weird Star Wars Boba Fett with multi-colored pieces in electronics. Looked interesting enough to grab one.

    Was hoping they had the new Spawn stuff, but was told they are over a week behind on shipments and stocking.
    Not overly upset as I got shipment notifications from my Target pre-orders for Violator and Raven Spawn right afterwards.

    Anyone see the World's Collide Set in the Pittsburgh area? Been to a few targets, they have the label but no stock and the online inventory sucks.

    No. McCandless is the only store that shows as selling it in the app, and they supposedly got a truck last Wednesday. I had gotten word from one of the employees ahead of time to call that morning since they would be coming in, but the guy on the phone knew nothing and showed zero in stock, zero coming on trucks. Other than that, all I've seen are tags at the ones that the website says don't sell it. I assume they'll show up with no warning sometime soon at a bunch of local stores. But just in case that doesn't happen, my offer from a few days ago still stands. PM me if you're interested in sending one my way from out east for cost+shipping+finder's fee.

    Langhorne Target

    I don’t even know why this store has a toy section. It’s useless lately.

    Warrington Target

    3 Worlds Collide sets (1 went home with me)
    A bunch of Origin BB (1 also went home with me)

    Nothing Kingdom around. Been keeping an eye on the Texas sightings page…there seems to be more down there. T minus 15 days til I say Adios to Pennsylvania

    Target - West Homestead
    (Waterfront)

    FINALLY! New stock!

    Kingdom Wave 3 Deluxes.
    SS86 Wreck- Gar
    SSBB Thrust

    I walked out with the only Wingfinger, one of the Scorponoks, and one of the Wreck Gars. I’m back and forth on Thrust at the moment and both Wheeljacks had slight scuffing/ chipping on the top left of the chest plate.

    The Ark has arrived!

    As difficult as it was to do, I left it for one of you. I already have mine preordered.

    Another shot at SSBB Thrust.

    Buzzworthy Barricade two pack.

    This keeps happening, I just stop getting alerts for this thread for days randomly, and I probably missed something right near me because of it, which sucks
