I got a little story about hidden treasures. My son goes with me a lot when I look for Cobras and Joes. He's been watching me move around boxes and look back in the shelves. Lately I explained to him why I do that, telling him people stash good stuff away so others wont find it (or they're coming back later). The other day I was grabbing some B.A.T.S. at T.J.Max. I see a worker (younger girl) standing over by my son talking to him. I asked if everything was alright. She said she just stopped over because he was digging around the bottom shelves pulling things out. I asked her if he was putting the stuff back or just making a mess, she replied he was putting it back just fine. Just then he pops up, dancing around. We both look at him. He's like, "I just found a stash and completed my collection!" I gave him a high five and she walked away shaking her head. Like father, like son...

I have no problem opening up the shelving at Target. If I am in the action figure aisle and there is one or two turbo tanks on the bottom shelf and nothing else that is a clear indicator that something is stashed. I move the turbo tanks and unclip the shelf. Low and behold - I usually find something.
During Christmas I did that at the Target in Copaigue Long Island and found the Jedi Luke Slave Leia wave. I bought the wave and put any duplicates on the pegs.
My feelings? If you see it, buy it. Don't stash it. If you are not going to pay for it then let the next guy have a chance.

I've never found any stashes, but people keep finding mine. I thought I finally found a spot no one will look. I figured no one will look behind golf clubs - but not just any golf clubs, all pink breast cancer awareness golf clubs (they have them at Walmart).
I hid DC Universe Spectre, Dr. Mid-nite, and Eclipso. My plan was to check the other Walmart across town to see if they had the rest of the set, because I can't stand having bits and pieces of a Build-Figure.
The other Walmart didn't have them, but, then, I had a change of heart and decided to pick up Spectre and Doc, because they were cool looking figures and I like them as comic book characters. I didn't want the Eclipso figure though since it just wasn't an exciting toy.
When I got back to my stash, I was suprised to seE Eclipso there but no Spectre or Dr. Mid-nite! At least if they had all been gone, I would have figured that a store worker found them, but, no, this guy wanted to give me the Big FU by taking the cool toys and leaving the crap one. To whoever found my stash - "you sir defiled my wife while I watched and made me like it."

As a collector, I def have raided stashes and have occasionally hidden a thing or two myself. However, I recently became an inventory supervisor at my WalMart and the idea of these stashes now drives me a little nuts. every time I have to fix a count request in toys from now on, I'm gonna wonder if there is actually an issue or if the item is just hiding out somewhere waiting, and when I zero it out, it'll come back and bite me in the rear a week or two later as a negative on hand. Oh well, job security atleast...
