Good to fine another local collector. I was just at the Glenville Target and got a guy who I had been calling a number of times to find out if there was a shipment in. He told me on Monday that it would be there either Wed or Friday. Well guess what... I went in and they hadn't even unloaded the toys to the floor yet, said it could be a couple hours. However, he checked the stock on the telzon and said they had 7 or 8 that must be in the back and he would grab them. I was so nervous that they would be the WM XXX Elites, but nope. A whole unopened case of Elite 27s. 2 RVD's, 2 Takers, 1 of everyone else, including rikishi. So I grabbed 1 of each leaving behind the extra RVD and Taker for someone else to find. Went to the front desk got my price match and instead of paying like $130 for those, I walked away with a elite 27 series complete and down just $64, so happy.

Also a side note, on Friday last week I found a Rock e22 and Ryback e21 and didn't bite on them. Went back on Monday and saw that the Rock was gone, I normally check below and around but nothing was hidden. Went back on Tuesday as I was passing through and saw Rock hidden and figured I had the flyer and didn't own either so I picked them up, waited until Wed to open the Rock and noticed someone swapped the new WWE title with the old spinner version. Also pointed out a week before that someone swapped a Mark Henry e26 for either a basic or Jakks Henry. They damaged it out and pulled it from the shelf at that point. Just an FYI to make sure you check over your packages, even if your not a MOC collector.

Went to TRU they had BOF Heyman Punk, Cena, Lesnar. No Daniel Bryan. Grabbed Punk and Lesnar. Looking for that DB. Might be a hard one to come across. Either way they also had Sheamus, about 15 of him from e26. I didn't have interest in the basics so I didn't even look through them.

If anyone finds BOF HEYMAN Daniel Bryan and doesn't need I would like to get it from you locally, at cost. Not looking to pay mark up but would be willing to do similar when hunting on an as needed basis.

We'll I'll keep posting even if others don't. Went to TRU in Colonie today in an attempt to get Daniel Bryan Paul Heyman BOF. Guess what the have him, plus they have a much better selection of elite figures overall. No just Sheamus 26 falling off the pegs. A solid amount of e26 ranging for all characters. I thought I saw e27 but could be wrong because my main focus was the exclusive BOF.

Nothing out my way in Wilton and CP. It looks like Walmart in Wilton just got the E27 series in. Hoping it doesn't sit too long. As for TRU in CP I found SHeamus by the dozens from e25. They also had Punk BOF Heyman.

Good to have another local DB. Right now I am chasing the 28s. I know Wilton had e27s last week and the whole set. Looks like just a few guys on the pegs right now. Also keep your eye out for the guy swapping figures from old basics, old titles. Make sure you examine the figure before purchasing because I missed out on a new WWE title belt in a elite Rock that a spinner was swapped in. I've also seen Jakks Mark Henery in an E25 box so it's a habit around around here.

Still hunting for some E28s...Nothing in Wilton Walmart or Target. I know Walmart has a few, I think Kofi and UT e27. Target has a bunch of e25-e27 randoms. I have everything there so it isn't a big deal but trying to track down my Wyatt is driving me nuts. I also want the BAF Ross and can't find those right now either.

Just caught this thread. I'm an Albany guy too, as Self Savior knows. I haven't seen much pop up lately, but I haven't gone looking for figures lately. The last time I was in Target in Colonie a few days ago, they had Kofi and Undertaker from E27. Waiting to hear about the BAF JR set, that CM Punk is one I'll be grabbing when it comes out.
