    Ollie’s at Maryville has about 12ish left as of 3:20 PM. The lady at the register mentioned that they limited purchases to 3 per customer after a scalper tried to buy 8 of them, which is pretty great. (I had a hard enough time just carrying the one, I can imagine how stupid you’d look trying to haul more than two.)

    Thanks for the heads-up, guys! Hope everyone who wants one gets one.

    The Chattanooga Ollie's has two Trypticons remaining when I left around 3. Picked up one myself so hooray! The only deluxes I saw were Slugslinger and Kup. Pretty sad about no Misfire.

    I did not see any other Transformers. Trypticons were it.

    Finally found Titans Return Slugslinger at Ollies down in Columbia, TN. He looks great with Trigger-happy and Misfire

    Looks even better if you take a metallic silver Sharpe to the four circles on his chest...IMO...I did it on mine and was impressed how much better it made him look, to me.

    I've also been using it to color in some wheel hubs

    Hey guys, I’m in Tennessee for my honeymoon this week. Are there any good comic/toy shops that carry Masterpiece figures? I’ll be visting the Gatlinburg area and also Nashville.

    I’m not sure about master piece figures but I do know a few places that would have G1 and other such transformer figures

    I know starbase 1552 in Franklin has a few g1 and generations figures. Might also want to try The Great Escape comic shop in Nashville.

    The big flea market in Sevierville has a booth (I assume it’s still there) that usually has quite a few Transformers. I usually end up grabbing a couple of Beast Wars figures from them whenever I’m there.

    There is a store between Sevierville and Knoxville on Chapman Hwy called Pop Culture Autographs and Collectables. It may be a little out of your way, but he has both G1 and Masterpiece Transformers. You can find the store on Facebook for more details.
