Brickseek tells you if it's on sale at specific stores? Because individual store managers set all unadvertised sale prices.
Yes it does. Like I said, Optimus Prime SS38 was or is on sale at Wal-Mart for 7 dollars.

In fact, it's still on sale.

I've never seen any Transformers on sale at local Walmarts except some of the cheap cartoon ones and a couple of the less popular deluxe Titans Return ones.

The state of World of Nintendo here in central Indiana is dire. I keep tabs on a lot of stores over a very wide radius to keep up on new waves and no one is ordering 2.5" or 4" waves anywhere.

Walmart checkout lanes? Virtually gone with only a couple lanes holding a mish mash of old waves. They stopped carrying 4" toys a looong time ago.

Walgreens? All behind, some haven't restocked since earlier last year.

Meijer? Overstocked with the Iggy and Propeller Mario waves.

Gamestop? Unreliable, only found one with the new 2.5 wave, grabbed what i need from that since no one else has had it.

Target is behind most places I've checked, too. Only found one that got the 4" Plant wave

As of today, I've yet to see the new Lakitu/Safari Mario wave anywhere.

Edit: ooh, i remembered one more for the pile. Barnes & Noble clearanced all their WoN stuff last year at the 3 remaining locations here. Now all they have are the plushies.

Got the Splatoon double pack, and they’re probably my fav figmas yet. The splat-roller alone is the best accessory I’ve seen in a figma - though I’ve only got a few Nintendo figmas and am not as big a collector as some in this thread :)

Lucky :( I gotta wait till tomorrow! I am seriously excited for these figures. and as someone who does run into figmas a bunch the rollers is one of the best accessories I've seen in a while. The only way it could have been better would be if it came with an extra orange roll so the Splatoon 1 Girl could use it too.

I finally did it. I finally pulled the trigger and got me some Hot Toys figures. I went a little big and got me:
  • Concept Art Captain America
  • Endgame Cap
  • Endgame Thanos
  • Endgame Ironman
On top of the NECA TMNT GameStop version which from what I understand is near identical to the SDCC versions. And I want a good Hunter Predator and a classic Alien figure, whew I'm off to a start.

Wait, that upcoming Marvel Legends Liefeld era Cannonball figure... it really doesn't come with any legs, just a "blasting" mode stand?

And that Boom Boom, ugh. Whatever happened to her anyway?

I had it in my cart, but the stupid "Purchase" button wasn't doing anything. By the time it loaded and I put my info in (which I had saved btw), it was sold out. Every fucking time with this stupid site.
Same had it in my car the minute it went up. Checkout button didn't even do anything. Item was still in stock too. Oh well. I'll try tomorrow. If I can't get it tomorrow though I'm screwed, won't have the time to check on Friday.

But don't worry! It's up on ebay for double the price already!

I set reminders for 9:55am for tomorrow and Friday... I missed on last years Turtles and had to settle for the GameStop individual re-releases instead.

Whoops on one of the nunchuks. They are now dynamite sticks.


Deciding on which Leo pose to go with.

Those look crazy good. Can't help laugh at the thought of the turtles fighting off some of the foot only for Mickey to start blowing them up.

Uuuugh whyyy am I getting into this.... I already fear for my wallet. But If you're into Titanfall or MechWarrior you should look into the upcoming Mech-Line from Teccotoys. I don't no why. Collectable toys have never resonated with me but these... OOOH my poor old heart.

The Kickstarter is supposed to be coming in July. Check it here:

Check out some of the 3d renders here:

Missed out on the Splinter set again because the checkout button didn't work. Managed to snag john Connor even with the checkout button glitch.

UGH I really want this set, but it look like I'll be forced to use ebay in a bout a month.

I was able to get the NECA SDCC bundle today with one of everything after failing yesterday. Of course, I wanted that TMNT Splinter set the most to go with my Turtles figures from Gamestop. I was getting the same checkout issue again today (I was on Chrome both times) but quickly swapped to Internet Explorer and it let me checkout. It was mostly just luck with a bit of quick thinking.

My S.H MonsterArts Godzilla arrived today. Its my first SHMA and I ordered Godzilla based on my excitement for the movie, but I don't think I'll be getting any more of these as this is one crap figure. lol

First I was surprised at how tiny the figure is. The proportions seem off too as he has this tiny button head. Then when I open the packaging I'm met with a foot detached from a leg...lol Thankfully it just popped back on but trying to pose the figure and his head popped off that then cascaded to his neck line and spinal piece falling with it.

I'm not even going to attempt the switch out the mouth pieces for the Atomic Breath because who knows what'll happen. For the price though this thing ended up being an expensive lemon.

Lol yeah he ain't got no legs, and I kinda like that Boom Boom design. Just picked up Jubilee and Gambit so now I just need to find me Beast

Now that I think about it, it's the ultimate Liefeld figure. Can't be bothered to draw a lower half of a body or feet, just make a blast around him.

Still sucks, though. He already looks dumb blasting in a standing position.

Woah, retro Marvel Legends X-men figures? I'll take 'em.
