    haven’t been in this thread for years but wanted to get alerts for when the G2 Deluxes start showing up!

    I saw Dirge at my local Fred Meyer about a week ago, but haven’t bought anything at Fred Meyer since they abandoned all reason (and MSRP)

    Good News? BobaKhan has about 5-6 of the War Dawn boxed sets from SDCC.

    Bad News? They're wanting anywhere from $100-120 a piece for them.

    Unsurprising for BK.

    The SDCC exclusives will be available on Pulse this Friday, 9am for premium members and 10am for general members.

    It's sad to see. Prior to the pandemic, BK was usually pretty reasonable on their prices, which kept me a consistent customer. But now? Ugh...venturing into scalper territory is not a good look for them.

    I’m almost positive they have new owners, or something majorly shifted. I’ve been going there for years from Oregon, and the last few trips in the past year their prices have skyrocketed.

    For example, they had a Super7 Ultimates Power Rangers figure for something insane like $90 - $100… when it’s readily available for retail for $55 everywhere. A lot of weird stuff like that — I get local stores need to mark things up, but there was tons of stuff that was easily 2x retail that you could still find for retail easily.

    Their social media on Instagram has a way, way different vibe to it now too. It used to be lots of posts about kids shopping there, happy customers, local artists, that sort of thing, to Whatnot spam, and now they haven’t posted in over a month.

    Really sad to see them slide like this. Last two times I have been in the area I haven’t even stopped in.

    Thanks for the update on Phantom Zone! I was wondering what happened to them when they left Everett Mall!

    Also, Everett Target has about 3-4 of the Dead Prowl & Ironhide 2-pack.

    Typically $5-10 more than retail (and more for exclusives), but they have a shocking amount of stuff in stock. Like you can see in this photo, they get exclusives in there all the time. I got the Rainmakers from them before the online restock ever happened. They also get stuff earlier than anywhere else around here, I got Wild Rider and Tarantulas before they were on any normal retail shelves.

    Their customer service can be pretty off though. When I got WR and Tarantulas the guy checking me out was complaining because they were priced as $35 when they were "supposed" to be $40. Not said in an I'm letting you have these for cheap kind of way, but in an I'm upset over this sale tone. Weird vibe every time I go there.

    So I'm pretty 50/50 on them. I can accept the high prices since they've always got great stock but something about the place makes me uncomfortable. But they're a bit far from me so I don't visit often due to distance.

    Yah! I wandered in there while out Christmas shopping just because it looked cool and I def. got a weird vibe.
    Felt like they were acting like I was casing the joint.

    Hopefully, the attitudes have changed moving to the new store.

    It's on the JCP side of the mall. Look for the store without signage.

    And if you are looking for Dirge or Jetfire, they have a few in stock.

    I can't say what they've got on shelves (yet)...but I was able to put in an online pickup order for G2 Grimlock at the Lynnwood WalMart and it's been fulfilled. So might be worth checking out!

    Okay, so 2 Grimmy's left, 3 Cloudcovers, 3 Watermelon Mirages and 1 Lasercycle at the Lynnwood Walmart. Good luck fellow hunters!

    I managed to grab the last one @ Lynnwood. If I see him again, I'll grab it and let you all know. Still looking for Dead End though.

    WalMart on Everett Mall Way surprisingly had plenty of Gamer Cliffjumper and SS Brawn. Distinctly non-Toxic however.
