There's a bunch more on high shelves in the back, but can't tell exactly what the all are. Just lots o' them.

Went nearly everywhere Hagerstown had to offer looking for Activators Megs and Grimlock, and found only the new Robot Heroes. Bought Rhinox/Waspinator, Megatron/Silverbolt and Tarantulas/Optimus. Passed, for the moment, on the G1's. Also saw Marvel Torch crossover. Pretty nice, actually. TrU had Titanium Prowl. Darnit, I wanted Grimlock something fierce.
Oh well.

Well, according to my little brother, the Target near Martins Airport has "Lots."
Can't elaborate, but something is there. :grin:

Found the jet twins at Hagerstown Wal Mart last night. They had three there, all with banged-up boxes. I picked up the least abused one.

Okay, these are the first TF:A figures I've gotten that I feel like I wasted my money. It seems like the designers were only going for that stupid combining gimmick and ignoring all aesthetics in the process.

Oh well, at least the wait is over. Now I can look for Dinobot.

I found Dinobot at Hagerstown WalMart. They also had about three Blurrs, four Swindles and three Blazing Lockdowns. Looks like they just put out a case, actually.
Also got a Megatron FlyPaper for $1.50. DON"T JUDGE ME!
No other new Universe, though. Looked around at a few other stores for Lio Prime and Bruticus with no success. For those interested, no Smokescreen, either.
At Target, they have one more Ratbat/Springer two-pack left for $14.

Both target and walmart of Aberdeen had the same stuff they have had since the beginning of Jan, NO THING. Walmart had 12 pegs for Deluxes, each of which only had 1 to 2 toys on each. Whats the deal?? Harford Co. isn't that backwoods.

Toys R Us in Salisbury, MD has plenty of TF Animated Cybertron Mode Ratchets, but no Rodimus yet :(

They also have the full assortment of PCC's, a good mix of Generation Deluxe Wave 1 figures, HFTD Leader Prime (Battle Damage/hooks instead of blades) and HFTD Voyager class/Deluxe class.

Just updated some listings for TRU in SBY. Picked up the only Masterpiece Grimlock, and he is GLORIOUS!! They had at least two more TFA Rodimus Minor's left (after the one I picked up), and just one TFA Ironhide. Still tons of TFA Cybertron Mode Ratchet, and a couple TFA Voyager class figures. Pretty sure I saw a HFTD Leader Starscream too, which the Berlin/Ocean City Walmart also has a few of.

Toys'R'Us in Hagerstown Maryland has 4 TFA Cybertron Mode Ironhides and 3 TFA Rodimus Minors' in stock. These were case fresh sitting atop the the aisle where the transformers where on the shelves. I asked a sales rep if I could open the case and they said sure with no hesitation. This was an 8 pack case with 4 TFA Rodimus Minor's and 4 TFA Ironhides.

Transformers of other notes for those interested they had 1 HFTD Leader Starscream, 1 MP Grimmy, 3 wave 2 PCC Destructicons and 2 PCC Rallybots. They also have the legends Devastator with the G1 paint scheme.

Hi,

I checked out a local Walgreens today and found:

2 Special Ops Jazz (Bought 1 so 1 remaining)
2 Turbo Tracks
2 Fallback

The address is:

Walgreens
9616 Harford Rd
Baltimore, MD 21234
Phone # (410) 663-7957

The Jazz I bought wasn't even in the store computer. The Price Check came back to $13.99. It was a little higher than the normal, but I'm totally okay with it for Special Ops Jazz. I may in fact go back and get a Turbo Tracks.

Thanks!

Long time since my last post, but with Generations out and about I've started collecting again.

In the Hagerstown area I have found...

2x Dirge at Target
1x Jazz and 1x Tracks at Kohls
1x Red Alert and other Generations figures at K-mart
Have not been to my Wal-Mart lately but when I do I'll make a post.

Have fun looking if you need any of these guys, I haven't found Grapple yet he's the guy I've been looking for lately.

Baltimore Walmarts Good Deal Sighting

Postby Godomus Bits » Mon Sep 19, 2011 12:14 am

Weapon: Thermal Melters
He may not be the best Con ever but I thought I would pass my luck along.

At a walmart I stumbled on some HFTD line toys straggling amung the dark of the moon stuff. Out of curiosity I scanned Hael Storm because I had yet to of grabbed him.

Clearence..... $1 ....ONE DOLLAR!!!??? Yup

I was tempted to buy them all and build a little heavily armed platoon but I resisted so there are still some at my walmart. Someone else might have posted this and if so I'm sorry. I was just trying to spread the love.

Happy Hunting!

The Toys R Us in Germantown had the BotShots out and a Prime cannon. I will admit the BotShots look pretty interesting. The concept seems to be you take a robot, select between a sword, blaster or punch symbol, transform the robot, then have two of them run into each other, revealing the robot and the attack using the Rock, Paper, Scissor method. If the same symbol appears, there are power levels for each attack which then chooses the winner. They look cute and I'm gonna wait to see if they are gonna be cheaper than 4.99 or someone does a sale.

Yeah, I think they look really cool. I managed to pick up the clear Sentinel Prime chase earlier in the day in Pennsylvania. Its pretty rad. I think I'll be buying all of them even at $5! I'm a sucker for SD.

There are literally 14 Bumblebees on the pegs in the Columbia Target. Crazy.

Anyway I managed to snag an Arcee at the Reisterstown Target. Ratchet was gone, and they aren't showing stock in the back room.
