    In the last couple of weeks when I see PotP deluxes they are wave 1. Some of those are at stores that had wave 2 last month, so I don't know what the deal is.

    I've only seen it once a month or so ago at Battlefield Walmart. Last time I went there they just had wave 1 deluxes.

    Same experience here as everyone else: I saw Blackwing once in Walmart about a month ago. Since then, all the local stores have restocked wave 1. Wave 3 should be just around the corner, so I don't think we'll see wave 2 showing up again.

    This post is vaguely related in that it's VA-based, so forgive me in advance

    For any interested Marvel Legends Collectors, I have a NIB Marvel Legends Scarlet Witch/ Vision IW 2-Pack, I'm interested in trading for a Transformers Studio Series Grimlock.

    I'll trade 1 for 1, I'm a Marvel fan but I'd much rather have Grimlock (recently got a hold of Blackout). If I can't make a deal here I might sell, though I'd much rather trade.

    The TRU in Manassas had 8 of those 2 packs last Saturday morning. Did not know that anyone was looking for one.

    Does this belong to anybody here? A friend of mine saw it at the Wawa by Innsbrook.

    I will say it is different but I would be surprised if those lights are legal; VA has very strict laws on what is and what is not legal for external lighting.

    On the subject of cars, I saw a red Prius (I think it was a Prius, it was a while ago), with the license plate 0RYNPX, and an Autobot sigil around the Greenbrier shopping center. So that was cool.

    Several years ago there was a car in my apartment complex with the plate "ORIN PAX", but I never did figure out who it belonged to.

    As far as I know, those lights are probably only legal if they're never actually turned on while the car is on the road. Like, if the car's just sitting in a parking lot, not moving, they're probably "fine", but if the police saw it driving around with the extra lights on they'd pull it over. (Same deal as those colored "Tron" lights people put under the car body, or those colored LEDs you see inside headlights sometimes.)

    So I saw a RipperSnapper a month ago at the Shortpump Target and didn't buy it because I couldn't believe the normal price they are selling these for were $17. Did I fuck up and should of just bought it?

    Make that drive up here. I've seen that toy at almost every store I've been to recently.

    Now that I've written that the toy is going to vanish from the shelves.

    So I went to the Midlothian Target with the Wendy's in front of it and found a single Rippersnapper. Now the only POTP toys there are legend class stuff and three Skullgrins. It was amazing to not even see a single wave one deluxe. As for SS they had Bumblebee, Crowbar, Stinger, Rachet, and Optimus if I remember correctly. My Rippersnapper's prime is Liege Maximo that gives him the power to shred his enemies with a tidal wave of insults. I really do hope that means he kills others by just calling them dumbasses.
