    Mt Nebo Target has put out their new Human Alliance figures. 3 BBs and 2 Jazzs remain. But MISB collectors beware Jazz boxes are a bit squished.
    They also replaced the Toy Story 3 end cap with the new TF stuff, including the new fugly movie repaint two-packs.

    I'll keep an eye out for them. All the Targets I've been too have had end caps with the new Marvel U and Spiderman figs.

    Oh they're endcapping that stuff? That's a good sign then as my Target hasn't changed their encaps yet from toystoryapalooza.

    Mine didn't. All the new stuff is in the aisle. They still have toystorypalooza all over the joint.

    Gather round, my fellow Pennsylvanians! I have a tale to tell from the land of Sam Walton!

    I got my e-mail notice from Walmart.com saying that my TWO (one for me, one for BWDinobot) Human Alliance Jazz figures were ready to be picked up today. So I went on down, and I handed the lady the printed e-mail after waiting in the back for some help for like half an hour (cause seemingly only one person in the entire building can handle site-to-store orders).

    The woman came back with a box barely big enough to hold one Human Alliance figure. She then cut the tape and pulled out the Human Alliance Jazz box...but contained within the package was a Human Alliance Sideswipe and Epps! Now, Soundblaster1 had just reported that this item was at the Lancaster Walmart, so obviously, someone took it off the shelf, boxed it up and used it for my order. But, the lady informed me that this was impossible. That's not how site-to-store works. This came straight from a warehouse in Arkansas! I then asked where the other one was.

    After another 20 minute search, she came up with nothing. But she had good news. There was 8 of them in stock. We headed to the toy aisle along with a manager (which was futile, as what kind of toy collector would I be if I didn't pass by the toy aisle on my way in!?) We found nothing. She then got assistance looking in the back. They found nothing though. I mean...how could they? Being able to find an item that they have in stock in the back? CRAZY!

    Unfortunately, the way their system works, I had to accept the Jazzswipe and immediately return him for my money back. This counted as one of the two Jazz's I had on order. So now I will only get one more. The worst part is that they couldn't guarantee that the same bullshit wouldn't happen tomorrow...because now that the Jazzswipe had been returned, technically a "Jazz" was instock...but I was again assured that this was not how Site-to-Store worked. I did succeed in convincing them to keep the Jazzswipe off of the floor and locked in an office somewhere to prevent the same shenanigans...but I guess we'll find out tomorrow.

    They did stock some HftD Leader Class figures. One Starscream and one Prime were sitting on the shelf when we were looking for the mystical 8 Human Alliance figures.

    Went by the Exeter Target today and literally geeked out. They were fully stocked (in aisle) with everything except the two packs and Battle Ops Bee. I grabbed a Battle Blade Bee and Drift. They had plenty of every figure. Multiple Drifts and two Jazz were still there.

    Chambersburg Target fixed the Toy Story Blue endcap thing and filled it with New Transformers, everything was there (cept Banzaitron and Voyager Prime). No Joes (not even in the back) no new Marvel Universe.

    Went to Hagerstown Target, apparently they didnt get the memo because they havent even STARTED their reset. WTF guys. Not even any Joes hiding in wait in the back.

    So now I'm pissed and I went to Martinsburg WV looking, all new Transformers just like C-burg, and no Joes. But at least I found Marvel Universe Archangel so that hunt is done.

    Busy evening for me!

    The Exton and Lionville Targets finally restocked. Both had all Generations, PCC, and HFTD figures including Drift, HA Jazz, and Leader Starscream. Only things I couldn't find were the HFTD two packs. Also got a few Halo: Reach figures in.

    Picked up Generations Drift, Thrust, Bumblebee, HA Jazz, and the two Halo: Reach packs.

    I think the last tf i'm looking for in the upcoming stuff is the TRU MP Grimlock. If anyone sees it in the Pittsburgh area, can you please let me know. Thanks!

    I found Human Alliance Jazz at target in Gibsonia. I really want HA Mudflap now though. Its a big hole in my collection. :)  Well, technically, a small hole.

    I have something to the tune of $47 for TRU because of that stupid extra Leader Starscream (it was that or pay $8 to return it... which makes more sense?)
    So I need to get at least one MP Grimlock to quick turn that back into real money. I don't need a MP Grimlock for myself, so yeah. Y'all can have at them.

    Lancaster TRU has 0 MP Grimlocks, but they did put out scouts and GI Joes.

    Chambersburg Target filled their Joes, so I finally got my second Alley Viper woo!

    They also stuffed the Marvel U pegs with Juggernauts and Colossuses, so unless they decide to encap them I wont be finding the Death Variant of Archangel anytime soon. :(

    The South Philly TRU has all the HFTD stuff. No Generations or MP Grimmys. They had one Hound and one Bee version of that new line that has guns pop up when you press a button.

    The South Philly Walmart doesn't have anything new. I had to go there to get something; otherwise I'd rather sleep in shit for a week. The people that frequent that place are the slowest, dumbest, and sloppiest, fools that Philly has to offer.

    No MP Grimmy or new Animated deluxes at Wyomissing TRU. One leader Starscream and a few Hooker Primes, though. Also of note, Animated voyagers have been marked down to $13, and they have a Lugnut or two, a Starscream or two, Bulkhead, and one Optimus.

    Target on Rt. 248 had all 4 generations. I hid 2 Thrusts and 2 Drifts on the lower shelf behind the iron man masks if anyone is close enough and interested.

    Stopped in Bloomsburg Walmart and was pleasantly surprised yet again!

    -Had all of the first wave of Deluxes.
    -Had the Legends, Scouts, like Hubcap and Brimstone.
    -Had the PCC's.
    -Four pegfuls of Generations.
    -Two HA Jazz's (one clear headlights, one frosty), and two new HA BB's.
    -Two Seasprays and one each of Ratchet and Payload.
    -A Hook Prime and a Screamer both for $30.
    -Battle two-packs with the horrendous looking BB and Grindor, and with Brawl and Jolt.
    and
    -Had a shelf spot for Battle Ops Bee, but there were none there.

    I think that was it. Taking a run to Wilkes-Barre tomorrow and will scope things there too.
