    I haven't spotted anything new while out and about. All restock of previously released figures. Nothing of note at the discount stores either.

    Hey fellow local fans!
    I've been trying to sell these guys for a while at a fairly low price, but I think the added cost of shipping has kept people from going through with buying. And I don't want to lower the price more because at that point it isn't worth the trouble for me to securely pack them up and ship them out.
    So I just want to get rid of them. And before I just drop them off at Savers, I wanted to offer them up to fellow Transformers fans. These are absolutely free, you just need to pick them up! I'm near Garden Grille in Pawtucket, if you want these and are willing to make the trip they are yours! First come, first serve. DM me to claim, and I'll post a reply once they've been spoken for.

    1 each of Hard Hero Devastator and Bombshell statues. With boxes and original styrofoam inserts. Boxes have some wear, actual statues are in perfect condition. I got them for a pretty good deal years ago but they just don't fit with anything else in my collection and I'd just rather free up the storage space at this point.
    Hit me up if you want them!

    It's sad how bad those figures are shelf-warming. I see them EVERYWHERE.

    Just over the line at the Walmart in Bellingham/Franklin MA area last weekend they were like 10 deep on each, plus a full peg of the tapes.

    There are 13 Grapples at RI Mall Walmart for anyone looking for 13 Grapples.

    There should be 1 Sky Linx left at Warwick Mall Target...2 in the stockroom at the other Warwick Target despite the fact that they did the reset already.
