go beat the scalpers!


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?

Theres a good amount of toys around these days from the Movie line, at least in white plains. I basically have everything i need. That said I've gotten shut down on my search attempts for MP starscream.

i really need to find that guy or at least catch the day someone finds him around us. The walmart people I get on the phone or in person have such a hard time checking if he is in stock based on the UPC number... makes me sad
