    Shockingly, Harrisburg Ollie’s had 5 or so Generations Selects Lancer (orange fem bot) for $10. Picked one of those up! Also loads of Snapdragons and Apecaces. Some Megatrons. Loads of Arcee trio.

    This list doesn't include every modern Star Wars, GIJoe, HeMan and wrestling figure marked at almost exactly double retail, with the rarer ones being nearly triple the price.

    I don't know how they stay in business. After a certain point, people won't pay those prices. That's what I don't get about these shops pullin' this crap.

    He goes to a LOT of shows, including TFCon. He also does a lot of online business, and buys collections.
    His loose figure inventory is pretty impressive as far as Star Wars and Transformers go, but he has a few of the older Marvel Legends for well over $50 each and an Energon Omega Sentinel missing pieces for $90.
    I stopped looking after seeing Slag and Violator's prices.
    Ended up picking up a Neca Scorpion Alien for $30 (actually a decent price), and my girlfriend over-spent for two Funkos (Hot Topic Pinhead and crystal Butt Stalion from Borderlands).
    I felt dirty.

    Sounds like your run-of-the-mill tourist trap shop owner. He's good, apparently.

    Wilkes Barre Target and Walmart are atrocious. Some T wrecks at Target, otherwise nothing good

    I just feel bad for the collectors in the Hanover region that can't find stuff at retail anyway, then only to see this place loaded with what should be on store shelves.
    @worldsgreatest , my condolences, man.

    Sightings:
    -Nothing new at Chambersburg Target or Walmart.
    -Gettysburg Walmart has HeMan Revelations HeMan. Nothing new TF-wise.
    -Hanover Gamestop has SS Grindor for $45, and the Walmart in the same plaza has four of the green Core raptors and some HeMan Revelations figures (Moss Man, Evil Lyn).

    New Castle Walmart had 2 Grindor, 2 Rodimus (I bought one, left the other), 1 Leader Megatron, 1 Kingdom Magnus, Netflix wave 3 Deluxes, and a ton of the current R.E.D. wave.

    Oof.

    I mean the guy is at least incredibly nice and personable...

    Just a turd when it comes to business.

    I DID manage to snag a Marvel Legends Ultron (Ursa Major) the other day which shocked me.

    Hanover North Walmart had four Gold Label Red Hood Unmasked that seemed to be sticking around for more than a day so I thought I wouldn't have to rush...all gone now.

    At least I know where I can pick one up for $50 now!

    If not for Amazon I would never buy anything. Lousy retail.

    The Walmart in the big plaza? There were four of those there, as well as white Azraels when I was there around 1:30.

    Wow... Should've known better. Thanks.

    Has anyone spotted a physical SS86 Wreck-Garr in East PA anywhere yet? I've got him on pre-order via Amazon but the more I see pics of him the more I want him sooner than Oct 5th. So if I do find him at retail I'll just cancel the preorder and save that gift card balance for something else on their site.

    Hanover stores are usually dead zones. The Target is awful. Never stocked and the people working there do their best to be unhelpful. South Hanover Walmart used to stock fairly well but that seems to have stopped. Last time I saw North Hanover Walmart really stocked was POTP.
    You can tell when they do stock because all of a sudden A2Z is full of new stuff. He has all the current Ollie's stuff on his website so I know he hit them.

    Yeah, saw a bunch of SS Hot Rod, Soundwave and the bike bots there for $25-30 when Ollie's has them for $10.

    So did a quick run after work in Lancaster as per usual there was absolute nothing an any of the Targets or Walmarts. Hell every Walmart I went to had one or two deluxes.
