    Just picked up Ratchet from DC Chinatown Walgreens location. Mods please merge delete if this isn’t news worthy.

    Why do people always ask the mods to do this? Pretty sure the mods will do this, anyway, as they see fit. No need to make it a special request.

    any tips on how to hunt for these? As soon as I saw this news I went to my local Walgreens and all they had were a bunch of Siege Hounds and Siege Red Alerts. No luck locally for me today but I'll probably check daily now.

    I was figuring these would be out in the wild soon since the Obi-Wan and Black Ranger and Moonstar exclusives went up this week...

    time to hit the stores...

    1 - use your preferred method of transportaion
    2 - walk into the store. Make sure you have money
    3 - Go to "Toys and Games," look to see if Ratchet is there
    4 - Employ force multipliers. Enlist the help of friends to hit other stores.

    But no in all seriousness, if in my experience with Brainstorm, the clones and Wreck Gar, most if not all Walgreens will have a few of these sooner or later. Transformers exclusives don't sell as fast as the Marvel Legends ones. Just keep checking your most convenient stores I'd say. I usually hit a few during the weekends whenever a new exclusive comes around.

    Unless you live in toy deserts like Vegas, where if you see an exclusive in the wild it's probably a trap set by a scalper. I have never seen a WG exclusive in this blasted hellscape. If all else fails, Walgreen's online shop will get it eventually.

    Thanks! I was just wondering if there was any kind of tool like brickseek or special inventory number that is specifically tied to Ratchet that we could ask employees to look up to check stock... something along those lines. Looks like this might have to be a good ol' fashioned hunt

    Yeah that blows. We've got a ton of them in Portland and there seems to bew few who actually go to Walgreens to buy toys.

    Yeah...not sure if there is a way to check Walgreens inventory. Always an old fashioned hunt when it comes to Walgreens
