Mentioned earlier this week that Hermitage PA had gotten in Incinerator (which I purchased immediately), some of his case mates still remain. Landmine/Cliffjumper case assortment has a small handful of figures left as well, in Hermitage.

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.

Once again, Hagerstown fails. Target, TrU, WalMart, KMart... NOTHING (and by NOTHING I mean Ultra Magnus and Target exclusives).

TrU had an entire case of new Activators on the pegs and another case on the top shelf (already got mine at Kohls for cheaper), a Blitzwing and a bunch of other shelf warmers. I did pick up the TF:A Christmas ornaments, though. They're pretty nice. My daughter will like them.

Target had the exclusive movie scout class figs (Arcee and the others). Nothing else.

WalMart had TONS of TF:A LC Megs and Bulkheads, and some other older figs. Nothing too impressive.


Searching for:
Ultra Magnus... still.
Ratbat/Springer, Roadbuster/Dirge
KMart had CRAP. Four Minicon boxes, but otherwise, CRAP.

I'll keep an eye out for Magnus, but I'm assuming Exton would be a hike.

I thought that the Target 2-packs were not going to be released for another couple of weeks, and I really want Roadbuster/Dirge. If my Target get's them, I'll post it!

KMart IS crap, period!

Yeah, I agree about KMart to an extent. BUT, they did have the elusive Ultra Magnus I was after, so they came through when the rest of the 'better' stores failed.

I've seen a bunch of Blitzwings now around the Chambersburg/York area. Some Treadbolts and Universe as well. None of the Target exclusives yet.
STILL looking for Bakugan for my daughter. Getting frustrated.
If anyone sees any of the singles or three-packs, please let me know. I'd gladly pay shipping if anyone finds them.

I hit Exton Target and TRU last night, no Magnus, no comic 2-packs, and no Bakugon either. Thankfully my sons are not into that.

Both stores are suspiciously empty, which makes me think they are delaying a lot of stock for Black Friday.

It would really suck to have theose 2 packs be a Black Friday item.

Scored on the Bakugan! They were stocking the local Wal Mart with loads of TF's, mainly the latest Universe (Silverstreak, Ironhide...) and wave 4 TF:A. Also lots of TF:A Voyager figs for some reason.
Anyway, they had 10 cases of Bakugan on a pallet, plus another two already on the pegs. Got a total of nine, making 18 for my daughter for Christmas. She'll be so happy!
Now, if only daddy could find the Target two-packs...

...And daddy DID find the Target two-packs in Chambersburg. I picked up Roadbuster and Dirge, passed on Ratbat and Springer for the moment. Also got Stealth Lockdown, passed on Rescue Ratchet. They also had the legends five-packs and the movie battle two-packs.

Roadbuster is turning out to be my favorite Universe figure. Great G1 homage. I'll probably pick up the other two-pack, but I have no desire for Springer and Ratbat looked a bit weird, like there was too much leg kibble.

Glad you found them!

The target packs showed up in Exton this weekend as well, yesterday they had the Roadbuster/Dirge, Springer/Ratbat, Rescue Ratchet, Stealth Lockdown, and the legends 5 packs on an endcap.

Still no leader Magnus.

Went back to Target and got Rescue Ratchet. Mainly for the Starscream Legends figure. Oddly, this Ratchet is better than the original, with a tighter thigh swivel. Not bad. SS is total win. I really like it alot.

Going out on Black Friday to one of the biggest Wal Marts around to see if any new figures are released (that, and I want a new digital camera). Hopefully, they've been saving Blurr, Lockdown, Swindle, Skywarp and Shockwave for this weekend.
Good thing yesterday was payday with loads of overtime. :grin:
