    West Chester Gamestop has the crossover X-Spance toy on the top shelf.

    Hobbytown still has the Voltron figure, it's next to the Kamen Rider Belts. They seem to be getting more kits.

    Shortpump Target has a surprising amount of Gundam kits.

    I have an extra sealed Draculus in NoVA for MSRP if anyone needs it. I’m also still selling off the rest of my masterpieces and whatnot.

    Charlottesville Target has two Dracula-Mindwipes. And 2 Galvatrons with fixed shoulders.
    But someone explain to me wtf they’ve bumped their 5 deep rows of He-man and Skeletor Origins figures to $21?
    Both the other standard and deluxe figures have a lower selling point.

    Has anyone found Red Alert at Walgreens anywhere in NOVA yet?

    Also not Transforners related, but I know that they are mentioned here alot, but has anyone found Wave 7 of the Masters of the Universe Origin line in NOVA yet either? I know Wave 6 has been hitting hard at Targets in this area for the past two weeks though.

    If you're in Roanoke, Clearbrook Wal-Mart has 3 Tigatrons, a sweep, 2 Rhinoxes, an army of Gnaws, and the new wave of Kingdom deluxes, as well as all the retro BW.

    Manassas Liberia Walmart had two Tigertrons; suspect they both went out the door with a Walmart overnight employee as they were not there last night and I opened the place this morning. I did snag two from the Chantilly Walmart leaving none; one may be available to a board member - stay tuned - it was snagged by the intended recipient. Chantilly Target was as disappointing as I expected.

    Im still waiting on any change in my Pipes and Slammer pre-order. Does it matter that I didn't set it to Pile of Loot?

    Shouldn't make a significant difference. I've done pre-orders both ways without any noticeable change.

    If it was not set to go into your POL then they will just ship it out.

    Is it possible the figures were just hanging on the deluxe pegs? Those are $21 (battle armor guys, ram man, etc)

    Short Pump target has 2 buzz offs, they also had a sorceress but I bought her. Pegs are full so I would assume they have the rest of the assortment in the back maybe?

    Nothing good TF wise at WM/Target in short pump
