    Nah, that's okay, life made the citizen's arrest for her long ago.

    Okay, so regarding R & R in Tysons... I talked to the guy there and he says they've been there since last year. I didn't know, because they're down the Lord & Taylor side hall that no one ever goes down. He says they're closing and moving all the stuff back to the Springfield location on 6/23. He also told me the Springfield store is expanding into two (I dunno whether they'll be adjacent or in different parts of the mall); one will focus on videogames and the other will be records. I'm not sure where the toys will be concentrated, but the stores will have more room from the expansion. So that's happening, whatever it means.

    What??!:eek:  The Tyson’s store is closing? And I just went there! I hope the Two stores will be close, and I think that the toys and comics will be lumped into the Video Games one.

    Yeah, I was super surprised, too. They (or the mall?) didn't do a great job of letting people know it was even there. I live about half a mile from the mall, I probably walked past that side-hall 50x without knowing it was there. (There's also apparently a place that does fancy Turkish coffee, in the small atrium in front of R & R? Who knew?) I kinda wonder if the plan was always for it to be a temporary store, just until the second storefront in Springfield was available. I dunno if they'd planned it that far ahead.

    I found the new Siege Deluxes (Red Alert, Refraktor, Brunt) at Winchester Walmart South. No sign of the new Voyagers. I bought the only two Refraktors. There is a Red Alert and Brunt left at present.
    Winchester Walmart West is going to be dead for Siege deluxes for a while, I suspect. They have about 30 or more of the previous wave.
    Front Royal Walmart and Stephens City Walmart have nothing new.

    Nothing new at Glen Allen Target or Ashland Walmart. Ashland Walmart had two Hounds. Haven't seen him around for a while. Target has the exclusive SW Vintage series Han on clearance for $3.89. I got all 7 that were at Target in Glen Allen.

    I grabbed one of the Sports Car patrol Micromaster sets that was sighted at Fair Lakes Target. Two additional sets were left. No sign of the Off Road Patrol, or whatever the truck Micromasters are called.

    I finally (technically) got my Loki and Corvus 2 pack. My mom snatched up my daughter and my niece and took them on a trip from here, to NC, to Missouri and up to Minnesota. Well, right now there just outside of St. Louis and they happen to text me while in Wal-Mart. So, I asked them to check for the 2 pack and they actually had it. I have to wait till they get back in July before I actually get it but, they have it in the car and I can finally complete my Black Order.

    Massaponax Target is going through a huge remodel. I couldn't find where the Transformers were. Massaponax Walmart has one Galaxy Upgrade Prime and they were restocked with a bunch of old Studio Series figures. Nothing else new. They also had the latest SW 6" Black Series Archive Wave.

    I found and bought one Reflector at Woodbridge Walmart today. Someone had tucked it behind some nearby large toys on the bottom shelf. There was a Brunt still on the pegs.
    On opening the figure I was kind of shocked at how hollow his limbs are, but later I figured out that they need to be so the arms can tuck inside the legs for the combined camera mode.
