    Powhatan Walmart is pretty much the same as the last time I was there.

    Short Pump Walmart has 8 Hot Rods, 2 Devastators, 3 SS-18 BBs. No Starscreams.

    There are a bunch of Abominus limbs and probably 15 PotP voyagers (Inferno, Grimlock, Elite-1, maybe more).

    The individual Constructions are more like legends size. Combined mode might be Voyager-Leader size in height, but not scale.

    Is Trypticon still showing up at Ollies in the 757? Now that I've decided I want one it's probably too late.

    Not sure whether anyone here is interested, but I saw the (80s, lion, transformable) Voltron Super Mini Pla kit/set at Barnes & Noble for ~$65. My understanding is that it has some diecast parts (the box looks like a normal plastic model kit, but it's noticeably heavier). There were like 5 of them on the bottom shelf of their Bandai display fixture thing at Tysons, which I'm guessing means other Barnes & Nobles will have them, too.

    I built mine already and there is no diecast in it (or at least the version I got from Barnes and Noble). It is just some really nice dense plastic. Nice and sturdy.

    Can't imagine the awe and utter confusion I would've had if I saw this as a kid. I thought you took a clever shot of the Jada Hollywood Rides Optimus. Did you get to talk to the owner?

    No, didn't see anyone around. I did a double take as I was leaving the parking lot and had to make a u-turn to get some pics.

    I just stopped by the Walgreen's in Gainesville looking for the exclusive Marvel Legends Thing figure, but I found the exclusive Wreck-Gar instead. I bought 1, but there are still 2 left.

    By the way if anyone finds Thing in NOVA please let me know where. Thanks in advance!

    Wish I would have seen this before I drove all the way out there :(  they did have a cyber battalion sideswipe, though. Nothing at Centreville Walgreens.

    If anyone in NoVA could snag me a Cyber Battalion Shockwave or a Wreckgar I would greatly appreciate it.
