I would imagine that the whole chain has them, but this is the only one I've been to lately.
AND they're three for twelve bucks!


That's not bad actually!

Too bad it's not the multicolored bootleg of Devastator that Walgreens used to carry years ago. The quality is better, and you get every single accessory. *sighs*

You get most of them! I think that one or two of the individual guns are missing or wrong, but you do get two drill missiles, Mixmaster's double missile. all of Devastator's gestalt kibble and his gun.
I have to warn you though, The actual quality is pretty low. They're hardly worth looking at in individual robot mode.
The manager was really annoyed that he had to get the ladder to get the sets down off of the top of a browner for me. He probably didn't expect to have to deal with that until Christmas season.

KO Gesalts at Walgreens

Postby prowl13f » Sat Oct 27, 2007 1:49 pm

DON'T BUY THESE! They are made of the lowest quality plastic and break easily. But if you want a cheap set of Combiners you can't beat it. The Wal-greens on Center Ave in Pittsburgh has a lot of these (Constructicons, Aerialbots, Combaticons, Protectobots)

York, PA
Walmarts/Targets

Currently, nothing. Seems the shelves are up for dusting, since thats all there appears to be, or has been for some time. Seems that here in the arse-crack of PA, we don't get squat.

'Course, the only thing I am currently looking for is the US Masterpiece Starscream.

Sigh.

Still no Screamers in the area, huh?

I should be hitting the Parksburg Super Wal-Mart tommorrow morning for a Pixar Cars event for my sons, but I'll keep an eye out for Screamer and anything else they have.

The Walmart near me (West Norriton Walmart in Montgomery Co, Trooper and Egypt Roads) had about 15 of the 20th Primes the other day. They had been sitting on the shelves for a few weeks, seemingly not moving (unless they were just being constantly restocked).

I went back a few days later and the endcap these were occupying was changed to some other toy and all the Primes were MIA...either there was a sudden buying spree, or they got shipped back to a warehouse somewhere.

No MP Starscream, yet. That's all I'm looking for.

Was at the West Norriton Wally World tonight (Trooper & Egypt Rds) and there were five MP SS. Now there are four there and one at my house. Yippie.

I was just there a few days ago and there wasn't even a tag on the shelf for him...caught me by surprise since I was there to grab some stuff for a work trip the next few days.

Also, there were a bunch of Leader Megatron, Optimus, and Brawl in the store, but they were on the top of the automotive dept shelves. For whatever reason, the toy section overflow has been moved to the top of the automotive area, half way across the store from the rest of the toys. That'll confuse people when the holiday rush comes.

guys, are there any comic shops in the montgomery county area that sell tf's? i'm always reading about other people going into the local shops and getting imports and other stuff but i've never seen a single one around these parts. the only one i've seen was quakerhead(anime bento) in springfield but that closed down a long time ago.
