post your "beat to the punch" stories in this thread.
I saw the Transformers Prime sighting for deluxe wave 4 in PA,Hazelton 24 hours ago.
I figured since the walmart distribution center is in Tobyhanna,PA. I figured various walmarts in the area might have received TFP deluxe wave 4.
So I decided to go to my walmart in PA Stroudsburg looking for TFP Deluxe wave 4. I saw deadend,newer bumblebee recolor.
Sadly someone else beat me to the punch & bought TFP Deluxe Airachnid before I got to the store. I should have went to the store in the morning or afternoon. but I went their around 4 pm. I guess the early bird got thier TFP airachnid while the late bird/me went home with Zero.
I also saw the Cyberverse vechicles with wheeljack. I looked at the price & it read $29.99. Wow that's a lot of money for something I have Zero interest in buying.
I then decided to go other walmart stores in PA in easton looking for TFP deluxe wave 4. sadly both walmarts didn't get wave 4 in stock yet. I did see the new wave TFP Cyberverse commanders with dreadwing in it. I didn't buy it as i'm not a fan of buying super tiny TF toys. I did notice the TFP Cyberverse commander walmart price was $9.99.
I wound up buying a sharp alarm clock for $10,called it a day & drove home.
It's crazy,I must have spent at least $15 in gasoline driving around doing these TF toy hunts hours ago at three different walmarts,one target,one TJMaxx,one kohl's & one Kmart.
I could have just bought the airachnid toy on-line with $15 in gasoline going towards the on-line mark up price. If HTS,TRU.com or BBTS.com sells airachnid for under $20 on-line i'll buy one from them.
On a bright note,I saw a whole bunch of newer wave 2 TFP voyagers & TFP Deluxes wave 2 & 4 toys in decent supplty at Walmart. I saw the newer TFP cyberverse commanders dreadwing wave in decent numbers on the pegs at walmart. At TJmaxx,I saw a whole bunch of discounted Dark of the moon deluxes & DOTM cyber verse commanders & Play sets toys.
