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.

I miss Family Toy Warehouse in Altoona. That place had some good stuff back in the day.

Target Chambersburg - Onslaught, Blades, Silverbolt. Nothing else new.
KMart Chambersburg - TF:A wave 3 (lots). Nothing else new.

I'm going hunting this weekend, specifically for the Minicons pack from KMart and TF:A Ultra Magnus. I have no interest in Ironhide or some of the other Universe figures, so if I see them, I'll make sure to report them right away.

Exton TRU had one Titanium Prowl and 5 or six Unicrons.

They also had the Animatd Leader Bulkhead and Megatron that came packaged with an Activator, althought it cost 5 bucks more, so it really isn't much of a deal :roll:

Jsut got back from Shippensburg Wal Mart. Saw loads of wave 4 TF:A, wave 2 activators, and universe Ironhide (passed- looks kinda like a re-built SUV in need of Bondo) and Sideswipe (didn't like Sunstreaker, doubt I'd like a red verion). Bought an Acidstorm on impulse, just because I don't have any of the Seekers. The only other one of that mold I will buy will be 20th Starscream.

Still looking for Magnus, darnit.

Been kinda dry lately here in PA?

KMart Chambersburg- Four Minicons 12 packs on the shelf. Got mine already in MD, but it's still nice to see.

Went hunting yesterday at all the local stores for Magnus. STILL no luck. Guess I just have to wait for the dreaded Black Friday.

Non-TF related, Bakugan is nearly impossible to find around here. My daughter really likes them, but only has one. She wants to get another one so we can play with them together, but she specifically wants one that comes with the ball and a figure. NOTHING in this entire area, ANYWHERE. Sheesh.
Traveling to Johnstown to see family today, so maybe some luck there.

Well, the trip west turned out to be a pretty good one.
Wal Mart Bedford- all new Universe and Classics. Not my favorite lines, but I'll definately pick up Tread Bolt next time I see him. Nice colors and a pretty decent mold. Saw the rest, but passed.
TF:A- Waves 1 to 4. Nothing really new there.
STILL NO MAGNUS.

Saw TONS of Bakugan in Bedford and Johnstown. Odd, but not complaining. Got my daughter a bunch of them, so she'll be happy. Hey, they kinda transform, so they count.

It has been a bit of a dry spell out here as well. We haven't seen anything new with the exception of Unicron for almost a month. Lots of TF's are moving on and off the shelves, jsut nothing new coming out. I've only seen two Blitzwings and no Leader Ultra Magnus out here either.

I'll scout around Exton this afternoon.

I'm heading out east then south this weekend, so maybe I'll have better luck that way (total of 5 Wal Marts, 2 Targets, 2 TrU, 2 KB and 2 hobby shops). I'll either be really fortunate or really irritated. There is no in between when hitting that many stores.

At the moment, looking for:
Treadbolt
Ultra Magnus X2 (one for me, one for a friend)
Blitzwing (for a friend)
New Robot Heroes

Exton Wal-Mart had one each Treadbolt, Blades, Blaster and Heavyload.

They also had Galvatron, Acid Storm, Sideswipe and Streak, along with some animated Deluxe Soundwave, BA and Oilslick. They also had TFA voyager Prime, Megs and Bulkhead.

TRU had the same, along with some Leader BH and Megs.

Same stuff I saw last week :-(

Wal Mart had the 25th Prime. Not exactly flying off the shelves. I looked it over and immediately declared "PASS". No thanks, but for that scratch, I could get plenty of other TF goodness.
Besides that, they had nothing new.
Target - same thing, different day. Getting bored with them, actually.
Aldi's (never thought I'd include them in the collecting route)- fully stocked on TF:A, SW X-over, Legends and electronic BB.
KMart- STILL two minicon boxes on the shelf. Shocking. Otherwise, same old same old.
