    Target on 9th/MLK in St. Pete has new movie and TR toys. Grabbed Barricade, Berserker, and last Voyager Prime and last Chase/Roadburn. No Brawn today, but I got LG on pre-order. They also restocked on TR Roddy, Getaway, Bee, and Doublecross as well as one Broadside.

    Nice! I'd totally grab if I wasn't planning on getting the LG version. Really glad new stuff's finally hitting the area. Hopefully Blitzwing and Octane start saturating more now that they seem to be at TRUs.

    Ha, got lucky at the Walmart on Princeton & John Young today. Found Chase & Brawn. Funny thing though - the Brawn card was incredibly beaten up. As I looked at it to determine if Brawn himself was damaged, I realized that someone had tried to rip the package open - but all of that extra tape that Hasbro puts on the carded figures did it's job. I hated all that tape being added to the toy packages, but I now have an appreciation for it :)

    Hey, guys! I'm going to be returning to Gods & Monsters again for the first time since the relocation up the street-- we're finally getting the new bar built in the back! Fallout-themed this time.

    Anyway, I'm also trying to get them back on-track as far as Transformers merch goes. They are really slim right now, mainly because they do not know what to get and partly because they keep receiving damaged shipments. Let them know that there's enough interest in the area to warrant sorting this out and getting new stock, as well as soliciting for more collections of older stuff.

    Expect more stuff and a better selection once the bar is open, but for now it's a little tight since they have to pick and choose what they get, and don't always have knowledge of what's hot in every fandom. So stop by, say hi to Todd and tell him what you're looking for!

    Every time i drop in I try to tell Todd that i have every transformer misb i'm willing to dump. I could fill every peg on every wall and every cubby space and display in the old store with a transformer. Literally.

    Both Millennia Target and Tru have nothing new.

    SoDo Target has nothing new.

    Altamonte Tru has nothing new. Hardly anything at all really.

    Looking for TR wave 4 deluxes in Orlando this weekend if anyone can help.

    Just found Chase at the Fashion Square Target. Still looking for Brawn. They have 2x Gnaw and Kickback.

    Shoot me some photos, and let me know what you might like to get for it all. Like I said, I will be spending a few days every week for the forseeable future over there, and they are eager for input on what folks would like to see in the shop. I will see what I can do to make it happen!

    That's a tough sell, unless it comes from a collection. We tried to get a distribution or a wholesale deal going early on in the shop's history with X-Transbots and a couple others but they didn't seem to understand the concept. Like, we tried to bulk order Apollyon when he was first solicited, but they weren't really giving us a deal. We would have made like, a five dollar profit per unit. We would've had to have marked it up do as much as it would have been to just order it online and have it shipped.

    A couple other groups were like that, too. My bosses finally just gave up on it, and I really couldn't blame them.

    I did reach out to a friend in Taiwan, though. We might not be able to get third party transformers, but we might shoot for other third-party action figure lines and high-end knock offs. Right now, we are trying to get some of those overwatch figures.
