    Hey all, SGV/LA boi here looking for a non-Transformers assist. In the spirit of May the 4th be with you, I was wondering if somebody can please help me search for this particular model: the Hot Wheels Star Wars Carships Rebel Snowspeeder
    [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]
    Gotta be honest, most Hot Wheels carships are not my thing and I rather wish Hot Wheels sticks to expanding their own IPs. But this guy makes me do a 180 on that belief and even has @AutobotAvalanche 's blessing in terms of design. Please help a boi complete his OTP with this hunky beast of a Star Wars car, thank you!

    I've mostly seen the carship line at grocery stores, believe it or not. When was this released?

    Not sure, I first saw it trickle out to eBay by late March. Was counting on Target's online listing for it to have come in stock by now but no dice

    Yeah, Target's online listing stuff is hit or miss sometimes. I've been waiting for the Ian Malcolm (Injured) Pop from them. I don't know if it never went up or if I missed it because the page has reviews for it. And I am NOT paying $75 for a Pop. Just, blurgh. I'll keep an eye out for the snow speeder car as I tend to make the rounds more often than I probably should.

    I also remember finding a bunch of these SW carships at the 99 cents store in the early part of 2017. You could check that out but I know 99 cents stores get random overstocks and then don't sell that item anymore, so odds are they don't have any now.

    Roseville North Target has a few SS Stingers, a Ratchet, the Decpticon SUV (sorry forgot his name), Starscream, Optimus Prime, and someone else which is eluding my memory at this time. One Rippersnapper, a few Skrapnel and all of wave 1 Masters.

    Nope, no Leader classes since I would have been tempted to pick up either of those. I want to say looking up the list of SS toys it had to have been some deluxe sitting on the shelf since I remember the boxes were smaller than Starscream, but not Optimus (since there was only one of him there).

    IIRC, I'm pretty sure the leaders are one of each per case like 1x Grimlock and 1x Blackout.

    Umm, guys - went to Walmart Natomas at lunch and saw PotP leaders for the first time in a long time at any store. Anyways the lady who handles the toy aisle was looking down at all the shelf tags and trying to see where a leader OP goes on the shelf, she finally set it down after a minute behind a leader Rodimus that was already sitting there. I guess she gave up looking for what tag it went with. I had been looking for OP for a while and scanned it and was surprised that it came up $11! I grabbed him and Rodimus too because for $11 each why not! Best TF score I've had in quite a while. I checked everything else TF related and everything else was still full price.

    Cape and Cowl in Fountain Valley posted on Instagram that they have leader SS Blackout and Grimlock now. Not sure if that's too far for you though.

    Anyone in SF Bay Area want to buy then nonnef autobot clone weapon set for $8? I only have the decepticon clones; so I have no need for this. I also go to LA every month or so. If you can wait I can bring to LA the next time I'm down.

    Big negative between San Bernardino and Temecula at Targets and Walmarts. I found the dinobots and rippersnapper once at a Walmart almost two months ago and bought them, then I found hunngarr but his wrist was broken so I returned him. I’ve never seen a single other figure from wave 2 since then.
