So I was traveling in AZ last week, and across from the Casa Grande National Monument south of Phoenix is a Walgreens and I decided to pop in. Was very excited to find four Novas as I was starting to believe I had missed out - so I finally got one. Then came on here and realized Nova had been put up on the website for ordering that week...so no longer as dramatic of a find I guess. But glad it is up for order, and hope that bodes well for Quasar and Binary. Really want the Binary figure.

My Binary from Gamestop Canada just arrived in the mail today. She turned out really nicely! She will look great on the shelf with my custom Starjammers.

Went to my local WG in Taunton MA and they had 5-6 Quasars on an aisle endcap.
Let the hunt begin.

I kind of wish Hasbro discontinued Walgreens exclusives and just sold the figures for $30 or $35 on Hasbro Pulse. The amount of wasted time and driving around easily makes up for the higher cost. And many here wind up importing from overseas for $40+ anyway.

Let Hasbro pocket the extra $10 to $15 profit per figure and that will make up for the lost revenue of the Walgreens deal.

People will complain "why is Hasbro charging $35 for a regular non-deluxe figure with no BAF piece?" but it would honestly be better than the poop-show these Walgreens exclusives are now.

I’ve said this before, but the worst part about Walgreens is just it’s a wasted trip if you don’t find anything.

At Wal-Mart or Target I only go hunting if I need other stuff. If I find toys, great, if not, I already needed to be there. Even if I’m looking for an exclusive I can usually pick up something I need.

With Walgreens, it’s a special trip just for an exclusive, and if I don’t find it, there is usually nothing else worth grabbing. They have no other figures outside of things that are five - eight years old. Everything else is overpriced. It’s just a big waste of gas and time. A lot of their stores are out of the way usually too.

But what about the scalpers???? You'll be taking money out of their grubby little hands and giving it to Hasbro as well. What kind of monster are you?

My plan for Walgreen's going forward is to either wait out the website or go without.

Quasar just showed up at the Walgreens near my library; two left as of 9 AM. No sign of anyone else, out here, though. Definitely keeping my eyes open for Binary.

Hey bro I live close, can you tell me which Walgreens you got your Quasar from since there are several, thanks so much!
