    Combaticons all over the place today. Found Brawl and Swindle at Fitchburg Target, then found Blast Off and Vortex at TRU, and finally found 2 full sets at Target West. Didn't check Hilldale because...well, I had what I was hunting for. Target West also had Leader Skywarp.

    Drive safe, folks. The toy stores are definitely not worth it, and I can say this with some authority, having left the office early and stopped at the Toys R Us that's on my way home anyway.

    I don't know about anywhere else, but this had to be the worst job of snow plowing I've ever seen. I couldn't have gone out toy hunting if I would've wanted to.

    We had 6.2 inches of snowfall. The plowing here was pretty good. Note to self, never live on a corner again!

    Combaticons limbs spotted in the Wausau area but they're nearly all gone. Swindle was the only one left at the Rothchild/Weston Target and the Wausau Shopko had the rest of the limbs.

    Wal-Mart had nothing but a bunch of Silverbolts. Silverbolts everywhere in Wausau.

    Appleton - Target
    One each of the new RID Optimus and Sideswipe simplified guys that come with a minion. They also had a bunch of 4-pack minion boxes (with beastbox, swelter and others).

    Wausau Shopko had CW Brawl, Vortex, Blastoff and Blades for $16.99. Leader class Megatron and Armada Megatron on sale for $34.99. Walmart had nothing except all those Silverbolts and a lonesome Cyclonus.

    haha, whoops I meant Leader

    Still new to the naming classifications my apologies, i know them best by price points.

    aka in this case I mean the $45 Skywarp (v/s the $12 Skywarp).

    They have the same DPCI as the Combiner Wars Leaders so they won't go on clearance until they do.

    I've been tempted to say something about this at my local Target since they're sitting on four Grimlocks and have never gotten any CW leaders, but I realized they really don't give a damn.

    Gotcha! Kinda thought so, but I wasn't sure too.

    I remember someone posting on FB about AOE Leader Grimlock ending up at T.J. Maxx for $20. You may want to check out your local T.J. Maxx!

    Two full sets of the Combaticons at the Appleton East Walmart. At $15 each I couldn't pull the trigger. Of course it didn't help that my wife was standing right next to me. :lol

    I was at Walmart on Layton & 108th in Greenfield last night. 2 each of Blast Off, Swindle, and Brawl. No Vortex.

    I just can't buy 3 out of 4. My luck i'd end up spending $30 or more to buy a Vortex on the secondary market in 8 months.

    Speaking of Walmart, if anyone wants to time travel, the one on Capitol Dr has Tankor, Sky Byte, Roadbuster, a bunch of TF4 deluxes, etc. Looks like no one has stocked or shopped there in 2 years.

    As did I. I've actually been avoiding BBTS only because of paying sales tax and paying shipping. I've been using TFSource here and there. You prefer BBTS?

    I'm not particular. They came out cheaper than TFSource even with shipping and tax.
