    Has anyone seen Sweeps or Blaster in NoVA?

    One Scorponok and Wheeljack at the George Washington Highway Walgreens. Feels like the first time I’ve seen Deluxes at a Walgreens in awhile.
    Was hoping to get at least Red Alert or Blaster before I move, but those chances are looking slimmer and slimmer…

    Neither Battlefield Blvd. Walgreens even had a spot for Deluxes…

    I snagged two Sweeps and two Tigatrons at Grassfield Walmart. One Sweep left. One Rhinox as well.

    Yeah, I don’t think Blaster is actually out yet. I could be wrong, but the fact that we never saw an actual receipt, and there have been no further US sightings since that first posting (a week ago), makes me skeptical.

    Same. Been all over with work and Christmas shopping and I've seen nothing. Hopefully I'm just being suspicious for no reason though.

    Thanks for this post!

    I've been checking in stores all over NOVA to no avail as of yet. I've also been checking the app quite frequently as well, but it wasn't in stock earlier today the last time I checked.

    I ordered 1 Red Alert and 1 Marvel Legends Nova in order to get free shipping.

    By the way you can get 15% off a $25 toy purchase by using the following promo code... TOY15

    Worth Ave Walmart has tons of Kingdom Waspinator, Tracks, Shadow Panther, and Paleotrex (and at least one Wingfinger), along with a few Beast Wars reissues (Cheetor, Primal, and Megatron). No Kingdom Voyagers.

    Manassas Target had nothing new.

    Manassas Mall Walmart is decimated by the annual law enforcement gift drive going on this morning.

    My Jackpot arrived today, and while his misshapen helmet is not as bad as most of them I've seen, it definitely wasn't even glued together properly. Like, there was a gap between the helmet halves that I could visibly squeeze together with my fingers, and I was able to pry the head completely apart with just my fingernails. (Which I did on purpose, so I can glue it back together properly.) I truly have no idea how these made it through quality control like this. I wonder if any third-parties are working on a replacement head...

    Walmart Tysons West has a buttload of the reissue BW Optimus and Megatron on the clearance shelf. They are NOT on clearance, but they're on that shelf... I guess because it was convenient to overstock them there instead of in the actual aisle?

    is Toy Arena trustworthy? they appear to have slammer in stock, and I know I probably won't get him till after the holiday but I missed the boat on the BBTS stock, and I'd really like to know I can get the guy.

    If you live in Roanoke, unless you want some more Gnaws, there really isn't anything to go hunt for. I went before work and nothing new at any Wal-Mart's, Target, Gamestop, Ollies, or Macy's.
    I'm going to try to go once more before Christmas, but after that I'm not going hunting until after my New Years vacation.

    You are an amateur Transformers Fan. Putting a vacation before hunting. Disgraceful.
