    Kingstowne TRU had two MPOP last night when I got off shift. TFW was down so I couldn't post about it and I didn't have the extra to grab them for anyone =\ - They're on the end cap on top of the display of TVs on the Marvel side of the aisle.

    Go forth!

    Hopefully they're still there...

    Manassas TRU had one Voyager Dreadwing ($19.99 on sale this week) and several MP TCs and FE ent packs. Nothing else of interest. Aldi next door still has no TFs, so I guess they're not restocking them at all.

    Last night TRU Bailey's Crossroads had a Dreadwing, two MP TCs, and a full set of GDO Legends. No other GDOs, FEs, Bruticus parts, or anything of note.

    Seven Corners Target had the newer Legions, which I hadn't seen yet. Battle Tactics BUlkhead, Skyquake, Tailgate, etc. The whole shebang.

    Thank you so much for posting this!!! Was just vegging out when I saw your post; I then immediately jumped up and ran out to TRU. Both were still there when I got there, managed to finally grab one after months of looking.

    BTW, what do you look like/what's your name (PM me if you don't want to post it here). I just want to say hi when I bump into you while I'm there. I feel we've walked past each other several times without knowing the other guy is also a TFWer.

    Military highway tru: no gdo voyaagers nor legends nor deluxes. 3 sandstorm and fe entertainment paacks. 2 voyager dreadwings. A few MP Thundercrackers, there are still 2 cases up top.

    Did not see the tag anymore for GDO voyagers. For Star Wars collectors, there is 1 2 pack of the Mandalorian Assault Shuttle/Anakin Starfighter.

    I'll be in the 757 area code (Virginia Beach) next week for the holidays. Anyone for meeting up, or doing some buying/selling/trading? I'd like to get rid of some Movie stuff if anyone's looking for it, but if anyone has specifics they are looking for, let me know by Sunday.

    Whoa. I saw a guy doing a reset on the TF aisle and saw 2, but they may have had cases somewhere I didn't notice.

    I went by both Targets in Manassas today. At the mall they appeared to have gotten the Bruticus case, but someone already bought it* and at the one on 28 I found 2 of the Bruticus guys on the shelf and asked them to check in the back, sure enough they had the rest of the case in the back.

    While waiting, I noticed that the bruticus guys and one Jazz had a "fall of cybertron" sticker on the bubble, so it appears as though the entire bruticus case might have that sticker, so you can tell if your store got a case and you missed out or not. Pic attached... If you see a Jazz/Prime/Shockwave with that sticker it might be worth having your Target check the back room, since most stores are still clogged with wave 1. (both targets I checked today had 7 or 8 wave 1 figs a few days ago, then today got a new case with the older guys still on the shelf). Anywho, good hunting, guys.

    *i assumed someone beat me to it, but I didn't think to ask them to check the back, as they had 11 Jazz/Prime/Shockwaves. They might have just put out the 3 non-bruticus guys, but I doubt it

    At least the scalpers won't get their gas money back.

    One last reminder:

    The CVA meetup is tomorrow at 6 at TGI Fridays on Midlothian. I'll be a wearing VERY faded baseball cap (it was navy, but may be closer to brownish-gray now) with "Richmond" on the front in red. I figure a Transformers shirt may be a little too cliche.

    Hey man, no sweat! I snagged my own so I figure it's time to help a brotha out! I'm glad you got to it in time, for sure. Where they were I almost missed them but started cleaning the shelves and lo and behold there they were!

    You'd be surprised. They all come up under the same internal SKU. So when the computer calls for more it doesn't specify. At least for Target.
