Chantilly Target has two ironhides, two prowls, and 1 mirage. I bought a sunstreaker and a mirage.
I managed to pick up an incomplete G1 Shockwave for $10 from an antique shop in Fredericksburg today! It was labeled as simply "Star Wars" so I think they didn't really know what they had.
What shop was this
Blue Shark Antiques
Victory Comics in Falls Church had the new voyager Starscream for $55.
Yeah. I keep getting those two size classes mixed up.
I guess if no one cares if we push the get together to the first Saturday in October, we should move it for razerwire.
Any opposed to Oct 3rd at noon?
I got sick and tired of searching Va Beach and Norfolk for CW Ultra Magnus, found it on Amazon for $44.95 and free shipping so.. it's on the way..
What the fuck has happened to the stores around here, none of them ever has anything new except the occasional TRU and Target and if your not all over them checking each day, you'll miss it.
The Walmart on phoenix dr by lynhaven mall finally got some CW deluxes in last night, they got Wave 3 Protectobots. They haven't had a deluxe in that store since March which was wave 2. They haven't had a legend since pre-Christmas, and Voyagers they may have but it's the same once that came in back in Feb and they have like 30 of Op/Silverbolts. It's pretty sad..
Agreed. Gone are the days when you could go out on a random trip to a store and find something. I work during the days, so by the time I can actually get to a store, it's been picked clean. The toy market has definitely changed. Now you are competing against adult collectors, scalpers, kids, customizers needing extra figures for fodder and then throw in the people who work at the stores who pull stuff for friends or scalpers who turn around and then sell it on eBay. It's not worth the 'fingers crossed' optimism that ends in disappointment that constantly occurs.
More and more I've been getting stuff online. The deals are there, you just have to be patient.
Not a lot new in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake so haven't posted in a while. Just saw a Motormaster at toy store in MacArthur mall.
Also, SDCC 2015 stuff is back on Hasbrotoyshop, FYI.
Hopefully we'll see new stuff soon.
Have a good day, folks.
What toy store was that? I wasn't aware there was in there now but of course I don't really go in there much since I don't have a reason too. By time I get there, I'm sure that Motormaster is gone.
Okay let's just move to Oct 3rd then. That'll let me go to Baltimore Comic Con next weekend then.
Had no idea it was going on next weekend. Looked at the guest list and the only name that had me interested was Bob Budianski and I'm not even sure it that's the same Bob from Transformers cause there website is terrible
I'm going to take my son on Sunday just to see what the vendors have there and to let him see all the costumes and such. I'm sure he'll have fun but probably not as much as me.
Sorry. I'm pretty sure there is only one toy store in MacArthur. Small selection and calendars. I don't remember the name of the store.
No excitement for Bobby Skullface aka The Truth?
1 MP Starscream left at Kingstowne TRU. I hid it behind the MP Bluestreak in between the leader Megatrons for you guys
Got the one MP Starscream at Fair Lakes TRU. They did have a ton of Force FX lightsabers. 3 Kylo, 8 Darth, and 3 Yoda. And surprisingly the prices at Fair Lakes was NOT marked up over MSRP.
