    No it's not. I'm always excited to see new product on the shelf even if it's something I'm not interested in or planning to get. :thumb

    (just posted this in the toy forum...sorry for the repeat but it seems relevant here)

    I just check Walgreens in Hartford, CT. No Brainstorm but they did have the Black Series Vader...so there's hope that he won't be impossible to find...maybe?

    I just saw a black series Vader this morning at Walgreens. Hopefully they'll institute a one-per-customer mandate on the Brainstorms. Although, I do know peeps that get around that by having their S-Os or kids buying a figure too.

    I guess it depends on how many Brainstorms each store gets, and how much demand there winds up being. The last rumor I saw was each Walgreens store getting two Brainstorms, which would mean they are splitting cases. But some areas have several Walgreens stores with not much more than 10-15 miles between locations, and occasionally there is a Walgreens in what seems like a small city or just a rural area next to an interstate and a Walmart. Of course, Walgreens in these less populated areas might not get Brainstorm. I've seen Walmart fail to supply exclusives to stores in "poor" areas, but Walmart can be very random. I don't know enough about Walgreens history with previous Hasbro exclusives to say though.

    I don't know if anybody has asked this yet, but... does anyone know where to get a Titans Return-scaled golden briefcase?

    Asking for a friend.

    And because Agent Venom did well, Walgreens started having more exclusives with yellow Daredevil, O' Grady Antman, Namor, and soon Punisher.

    So if Brainstorm does well, you can probably count on that they'll eventually do another Transformer exclusive.

    This makes me happy because we might see figures we wouldn't see, but then again the UK doesn't have a Walgreens lmao

    And most of the collectors will be like:

    "What am I gonna do with the Voyager toy now?"

    Well I'll be putting him on my extras shelf, alongside CW Prowl, Wheeljack, Trailbreaker, & Generations Blurr. While this new one will sit with the Titans Return Headmaster Autobots on the main shelf for 86 & 87 guys.

    I want to say MLP too.

    He looks nice but I still like my Voyager.

    Hopefully, he will be overstocked like some Legends are so he will be easily available.

    Also, even though I never though of it before I got into Legends and checked they usually have all their exclusives easily available on their website.

    You can search too but here is the section.

    Walgreens does exclusives for pretty much every single toy line now. This is almost every exclusive they've had in 2015 / 2016:

    - Funko Game of Thrones Legacy Figure (don't remember which one they had)
    - Funko POP! Vinyl (tons of these)
    - DST Marvel Minimates (tons of these as well, like 4 waves now)
    - Mattel WWE figures (I think Shawn Michaels)
    - McFarlane Halo figures
    - McFarlane Walking Dead figures
    - Hasbro Marvel Legends (at least 4 release)
    - Hasbro Star Wars Black (two releases)
    - Hasbro MLP Nurse Redheart
    - Jakks Pacific World of Nintendo 2.5" figures (two Marios and a Link)

    Now they are getting a Transformers exclusive.

    There are probably more from smaller companies as well.

    For the most part, all of these exclusives were easy to find. Walgreens has been swooping up exclusives and making deals with toy companies for a long time now and for the Hasbro stuff, the majority of stores get shipped solid cases. I can still go to any Walgreens store around here and find the Hasbro exclusives for the past year with no problem.

    Every Hasbro exclusive has been offered online so far, so I would say yes.

    I hope I don't have to pay through the nose to get this guy. Hopefully he comes to Australia. Not sure if he'll even be an exclusive. For some reason the Target Exclusive DOTM Deluxes ended up at Kmart, so anything's game.

    Of course we may never get them. I mean Australia is yet to receive any of the Legends, Deluxes, Leaders or Titan Masters of the TR line. Just Voyagers so far.
