    Also, looks like Fred Meyer now has an extra-10%-off your Home (which includes toys) purchase coupon in their print ad.
    Discount doesn’t help much (as the figures would still be a few bucks above retail).

    There are still more Grapples in Tumwater, as of last night they look to be running out fast.

    Spokane Northside Walmart had 3 cases of Voyagers I picked up a grapple. Should be some left.

    Is this coupon still good? I found a Wheeljack at my local FM, but only the "extra 10% coupon".

    Also it must be June, since a different Target sold the Cyberverse Shockwave to me after the sale.
    On the plus side, if anyone wants the Maccadam leg for a few bucks, I'll put it on my Cybfest table this year lol.

    I found Wheeljack at the Lacey Fred Meyers about an hour and a half ago. Clerk gave me the 10% off when she scanned him.
    They still had one Wheeljack, three Ironworks, one Cliffjumper, and four Hoists left.

    I was at Southcenter Target just 3 days ago and saw the following Earthrise figures.

    Optimus Prime
    Astrotrain
    Grapple
    Ironworks
    Hoist
    Cliffjumper

    So there beginning to hit saturation. Especially now that they are showing up at Walmarts too.

    The newest wave of BotBots is out at Target, if that helps. Picked up some 8-packs in Olympia. As an out-of-work substitute teacher, those are gonna be the last figures I can afford for awhile.

    Oly Best Buy also has Earthrise Deluxes, Voyagers, and Leaders for regular retail price, if you’re hunting for those.

    We're not in a true lockdown, just nonessential business closed. Public transit still running at reduced capacity, but no forcible confinement.

    I have to venture out for various reasons four times a week, and if Johnny Jackboot wants to stop me he's gonna have to shoot me--and if he does I guarantee he'll end up having an even worse day than me if he does.

    @GiganGoji shoot me a list of the Botbots you want but can't find and your surplus, and I'll see if I can leverage some of my stockpile to help you out.

    I can tell you what it's like here in Olympia.
    People are still going about their business. Restraunts have their lobby's closed (drive through only) and minimally staffed. Lots of people in the service industries have been laid off. A lot of my family members are either out of work, or working from home.

    The west side mall is a ghost town. It's very weird to go shopping and see very few people anywhere you go.

    This city has turned into a small town.

    Traffic up and down I-5 is light at the prime commute times.

    So basically it's a Transformers Hunter's dream come true. Most people are just staying home for the most part and venturing out in search of essentials that the panic buyers haven't cleared out yet.

    I'm fortunate to be working at a marijana grow facility as a maintenance engineer. I'm not losing any hours where I work. In fact, the demand has increased.

    It's... Nice out here from my point of view. No crazy traffic. No packed stores. The sheeple are at home. Life goes on.

    The downside is I'm about to need TP and there is none.

    Just posted in the barter thread: Botbots barter/trade/for sale
    I gotta spend some time going through the lists and seeing which ones I'm still looking for. Off the top of my head, all I can remember is the black piano guy.

    My wife and I were there a few days ago (looking for a new phone and laptop), and only a couple of stores were open. Some employees were tossing a foot ball around, haha.

    It's weird, but pleasent at the same time. Like everyone's on vacation. There's no hurry. Just... going about your business without stress.

    Booze don't stop selling, so I'm still working my regular schedule. The commute from Covington to Sodo has been awesome.

    I do still need Optimus, Astrortain, and Grappel but honestly TF buying has not been a concern of mine right now. I'm really only setting foot in a Target or Fred Meyer if I absolutely have to, and there's no way I'm walking into a Walmart. Place was a cesspool to begin with.

    Ditto, but if I get a chance to check on things while out on essential business I'll take it. Out where I am Targt's practically deserted so the peace and quiet is nice...

    I was going to post my Optimus and Astrotrain for sale as a pair, if you're ok with loose figures.
