    I hate the way all these wave 1 figures are over ordered and the later waves are barely in the stores.

    Fairlakes Walmart has a lone Slugslinger. The head has QC issues, but the body looks to be in fantastic shape.

    Hello to the gentlemen I talked to while in the toy section. You're a hilarious dude. I hope you find a TR Windblade.

    Target Edinburgh has POTP deluxes on the floor. Not in the Transformers display oddly enough, but that Star Wars endcap, bottom shelf.

    2 Dreadwind, 2 Jazz, 1 Slug and 1 Swoop.

    I just watched them put out a full case of Legends too, same place. Snagged Slash and Beachcomber.

    I checked Fairlakes, Dulles expo, and Dulles Landing Walmart today. Nothing of note.
    Checked Fairlakes Target. They had a lone Dreadwing.

    For those who may have missed it, PotP legends figures are starting to show up at Walmarts. The odd thing is that they seem to be piled in branded cardboard bins in the larger aisles rather than up on pegs. Keep an eye out near the front of the store when you go in.

    I've only seen the red bin display at the Fairlakes Walmart. They -- as of last night -- had a ton of slashes. I know that's the one everyone wants.

    Oh, and a question to the parents: My youngest niece is looking for something called a finger fidget or fingerding... It's some sort of puppet. I have not been able to find a one of these stupid things. Is it a super hot item? I'm asking because I'm just contemplating buying her a gift card to Target instead. These HOT ITEM toys are real pain to find. Are your kids asking for the same thing? Okay, so that was more than just one question.

    Fingerlings are the young kids hot item. I wouldn’t bother trying to find one. It’s a dumb toy too. It doesn’t do anything except sit on your finger.

    There are two types a static one like Paik mentioned and the interactive ones. If you have not gotten one by now you most likely will not till the first couple of weeks in January when stores start recovering stock. Amazon would probably be your best bet to get one of those lucky "I will just look for the hell of it" kind of finds.

    I have never seen a fingerling in person, only heard about them LOL. I don't think you'll find it.

    Lynchburg Walmart has the POTP legends in those red bins with stocking stuffer toys. They are located in the middle of an aisle back by the pet food, of all places.
