Been so bare on all the shelves I see. I am out east and they have nothing anymore now that TRU and KB have gone the way of the dodo.

I moved out here like 7ish years ago within 5 min of a Toys R Us I was able to check both before and after work, and now At the mercy of Walmart, Target, and Scalpers for the most part...

The problem with stores like Walmart & Target is the employee's get paid low wages so they get these items as they come in and sell them on Ebay or to other collectors for a decent markup. Someone I know at Target in Commack tried to find me the Exclusive Mando and Baby Yoda set but they were all gone before they went on the floor !!!! I did find one last Saturday hidden in the housewares Department.

Walmart in Centerreach also hides cases in the back and marks them as on floor to feed some area shops.

I used to work at KB too. My friend ran a store and he couldn't find people to stock the shelves.

I was called into the office one day and let go when I was spending more each week than they were paying me and they thought I was scalping. I still haven't sold those toys. I still got the employee discount until they closed their doors.

The dpci is 087-16-8467 but group #’s aren’t working on popfindr anymore your best bet is to go to the store, have them scan the code and see if other stores in the area have the wave. Good luck

We all do. despite the website saying that it is in stock locally it isn't. What a joke.

I have a few things I want to sell but I'd rather sell it to scummers then on eBay. Clone wars stuff. First thing is a Sideshow Wolffe misb with Shipper box still. $400 I want to sell in person. I'm in Farmingdale.
