Well, you have Targets and Walmarts up the wazoo in the near burbs. One place that I can think of off hand you might want to check out is toynk. They are in Elk Grove Village which isn't too far from O'hare airport. You can get all the info from their website.

 

Other than that, I don't know of any real big places for collectables. I'm sure they're out there but I'm also sure they'll bleed you dry as well.

Well so far I haven't seen jack along the I-80 corridor; I made a run all the way around Orland Park, Joliet, on to Fox Valley and through Sandwich before coming back homeward. Nothing except a couple of the 6" Titanium Prime and Megatrons, but after seeing them in the package (and their horrible paintwork and shoddy QC, as almost every review has confirmed) I decided not to buy them. Aside from that zilch, zip, zero, nada. W. T. F. is going on in Illinois?

Classics Are Out!

 

I just picked up Bumblebee and Starscream at the Ottawa, IL Wal-Mart! They had all the Wave 1 Deluxes, and I saw some unopened cases for the Voyagers! Get up and get after 'em!!

I haven't opened them yet, but I can say this: I'm a little disappointed in Bumblebee already. I picked out the best of the 5 they had as far as paint quality, and it's still pretty crappy. The stripes are uneven and different sizes, the yellow paint seems pretty flaky and he basically looks like he was colored by a five-year-old. I may have to polish off the existing paint and do some custom work. I don't feel like I should have to, but if that's what it takes, so be it. Also the Rodimus examples they had all seemed to have some rough edges where parts had been taken off the sprue and the exhaust pipes didn't seem to line up right on any of the four I saw. Maybe that's fixable, I don't know. But so far I've seen enough to have serious misgivings about the QC on these guys.

The Villa Park Wal-Mart had zero Ravage Alternators yesterday. Today, it had one. I found no spot for any Alts (not even the oft-found Skids or Ricochet), and no Rumble.

 

But, if I found this one, it looks like the Western Chicago suburbs are finally starting to get these!!
