    Powhatan Walmart is getting weird with stock. They have one Spinister, new Cyberverse stuff and early line SS voyagers like Starscream.

    I just moved to the Tysons/ Mclean area this week, so I’m really new to the area and the state in general. You guys have any comic stores or places you’d recommend checking out?

    Thanks, I’ll check it out. I went to a few comic shops to the west of me and they didn’t really have what I was looking for. Victory looks way more my style.

    Where is that? I’m not seeing it on google maps

    Don't mind TCB. He's making a joke about VA being a Commonwealth instead of a state.

    oh, haha gotcha, I totally thought he was talking about a place named commonwealth. Commonwealth Comics wouldn't be a bad name for a store in this area all things considered. kinda rolls off the tongue due to the alliteration.

    I was at Fair Lakes shopping center this evening. Weirdly, the Walmart had some of the older Studio Series figures, like the non-tattoo Starscream (I think it was SS-06?). Also, a couple of Cyberverse Deluxe Gnaws and a Soundwave. The Target didn't have anything unusually new/noteworthy except for a couple Cyberverse Quintesson and Sharkticon sets (none of the new Botbots boxes or anything), but I guess it's worth pointing out that they didn't have the TF endcap thing set up like most of the other Targets I've been to; all their TFs are still in the one normal place.

    Manassas Walmart Liberia has a single SS 55 Megatron but no Mixmaster. Chantilly Walmart has nothing new. Chantilly Target just has the normal array of the standard new stuff; nothing special. I did pick up the two new Botbot claw machine and Drug store machine boxes last Friday from the Manassas Target. I took all 4 as they were the #1 and #2 versions of both.

    Short Pump Target
    Nothing interesting. Same Minicon sets, same smattering of Deluxes. Same year-old Shockwaves.

    Some Cyberverse crap here and there. End Cap is set up, stocked with more Cyberverse crap.

    Short Pump Walmart
    Cyberverse stuff. I can’t distinguish what’s what. A bunch of unwanted Siege Deluxes along with the usual overflow of ‘35th Anniversary: Never Clearance’ figures. Of course, plenty of Shockwaves. So many Shockwaves.

    My excitement for Transformers is at an all time low, and will remain dormant until some new stuff is released. Real stuff. It’s been 3 months- a quarter of a year - since there was a significant release of figures.

    Wake me up when Hasbro decides they’re interested in actually selling some fucking robots.

    Its been two months since the last deluxe wave was spotted:

    Siege Wave 5 Deluxe Crosshairs And Spinister Out In The US - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Shortly after that the Astrotrain wave and Rung wave came out in abundance. Its also January and we have a whole new line launching in a month or two, the first Earthrise toys were sighted today in Oregon.

    Its not as bleak as you fear, sir! Please stay bundled up in these coldest of times as we pull through together! A brand new Optimus with trailer is on the horizon!

    Winchester Walmart West: Found (and bought) SS Shockwave and Scavenger. None left, as you might imagine.

    I picked up Rung at Target Sterling (East) last night. They also had two Springers, an Apeface, and 3-4 Shockwaves.

    And Redwing is back in stock at target.com this morning.

    Fredericksburg Target has Shockwave and Scavenger. Nothing at Fredericksburg Walmart. S. Fredericksburg Target has the new Cyberverse sets. Nothing Transformers worth mentioning at S. Fredericksburg Walmart, but they do have at least 3 each of the new Marvel Legends Fantastic 4 wave.

    Scored a g1 astrotrain from the VB Hilltop walmart. They were sitting far back on the too shelf, almost didn't see them. There's one left.

    Lots of new cyberverse stuff too.

    Still no sign of siege astrotrain yet tho.

    Spotted Apeface at the Rochambeau Wal-Mart on the bottom shelf behind Megatron and Optimus... I left him there since I'm trying to get rid of my collection, not increase it!
