I know we’ve said it before in the forums, but it bears repeating every so often. An alternate place to look for – and actually find the toys you are looking for - is at your supermarket.
I just got back from my Stop & Shop supermarket. In their toy isle I found:
DCUC Hawkman and Mr. Miracle.
JLU Blue Devil in multiple.
SuperFriends basic Superman, Deluxe Batman and Superman.
Fighting figures – two different packs with Two Face in both.
and some Batman movie figures.
- and that’s just Mattel DC.
There were Star Wars figures and Light Sabres. Marvel Super Hero Squad including the larger figure sets with Fing Fang Foom. Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars. Etc.
So next time you have to go food shopping, or to the drug store for that matter, don’t forget to consider it as a toy run as well. You just might find that slightly older toy you missed out on a few months back. I remember hitting all the Walgreens’ I could back when I started collecting Ben 10 figures.
Then there is JLU Rocket Red. JLU Rocket Red was first reported from a Long’s Drug store, and I got my JLU Rocket Red at Stop and Shop.
And if you happen to need this guy (below), they still have a number of him on the shelf !
