Chicagoan posting for New York, just for the weekend, haha.

I'm not too familiar with the toy shops here, but the TRU in times square has a whole lot of stuff, including a bunch (10+) of Cybertron Primus', and I didn't get a chance to check if there was a Unicron Head. There were also a bunch of Classics Jetfires, and the Optimus Prime/Megs two pack.

Hope it helps someone!

the second anyone sees a restock of movie toys (especially deluxes) in our area we need to put the word out asap. I imagine the same will be done all over the place, but come here with store specifics asap!

This is for queens and manhattan.

I had a huge toy run today with a couple of surprises. At A walgreens They had bootleg Transformers combiners. (aerialbots, combaticons, constructacons and protectobots). They were 5.99 each 3 for 11.99.

Then at Target I picked up the Generation 1 repaint. They also had She-hulk on the pegs and had some of the star wars series 3 comic packs (mara jade+luke skywalker, vader and leia and dark woman and asherad herett?).

Then I went to northern blvd and walked into the rite aid next to the school and they had the Sigma 6 shipwreck with his monkey $13.99 I think. I stepped into National Wholesale liquidators and I was very surprise at what I saw...DC Direct figures! at 5.99 a pop! They had Identity crisis series 1+2, crisis on infinite earths series 3, superman/batman (the corruption of supergirl) and DC Direct re-activated series 1. I was so tempted to pick some of them up even though most had ugly. For transfans they had the bootleg Victory Leo and Saber(4.99).

Went to TRU next door and I saw a new scalper scoop up all the new figs. He had like 4 boba fetts from what I could tell. They also had 1 Y-wing and some 12inch Cyborg supermen. The superhero shodown 2 packs are like 2 dollars and change.

I went to TRU Times square and I was surprised to see Galaxy Force Optimus prime on the first floor! And when I went to pay for it it was 19.99! I picked up metroplex and Optimus and headed home.

I went home happy. I just hope that I can get Primus for cheap.

2 things....

1) Can you post pics of the bootlegs you got at walgreens? I'm sure if one place had them others probably will.

and 2) Getter: If you see any Primus's around town in your shopping let me know. I'm debating picking him up... but still on the fence.

Thanks all

not my auction, but here are some pics.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0145130068

Theese bootlegs are of inferior quality

As for Primus he's still 50.00, I'm hoping that for christmas there is a TF sale.

Thanks for the hint, but someone bought all the BBs and Dropkicks. That person was silly because he deluxes were $11.27 there and those figures no longer are worth what they used to be on e-bay.

Plus down the street at WalMart they had twice that amount for a lower price!

I got Dropkick, Thundercracker, Rescue Ratchet, and the Robot Replicas of Optimus Prime, Jazz, and Frenzy.

I picked up Dropkick at the Target on queens Blvd. At first the transformation seemed complicated, but I got it down pat now.

TRU times square had the new Legendary Comic Book Superheroes

TRU on northern Blvd had some old figs 74 bee, barricade, bonecrusher and swindle.

Target at queens place had recon barricade a bunch of 08 bumblebee's and the new GI Joes. Firefly, Shipwreck, Zartan, Stalker, a cobra officer and a red ninja. No Beachhead or Lady Jaye. They had Titanium Scourge, optimal optimus and Megatron for 11.48 and Those Beamers (optimus and Bee) for 10.48 They have some on the end caps across from the Bikes.

The new DC superheroes wave is out in TRU times square. Picked up catwoman and clayface. The pegs still had Joker, Bruce to batman, nightwing and Black and Grey Batman which I thought was Dark Knight returns batman.

The bruce, nightwing and Joker suck. They are old molds that have no knee or elbow articulation. I would pick up the Joker only for the cool mask.

LCBH they had the superpatriot variant, judge death variant, savage dragon variant and ann o brien variant. Also ripclaw and star.

An update from Albany/Schenectady/Troy/Latham:

Movie restocks are at all walmarts, to varying degrees. Leader Brawl is easy to sight, along with most shelfwarmers. In the post two days I scored a battle damage jazz, a recon barricade, regular barricade, and leader prime. And of all things, a cybertron soundwave in C8+ condition.

Still no luck on MPSS. Walmart Latham seems to "trickle" stuff out, a new variant jazz or barricade every day (and for pseudo-interested parties, some GIJOE releases too).

Anyone else from the area?
