    Three Rippersnappers at Elston Target, and nothing else from the wave. Wouldn't have guessed he'd be the pegwarmer of the wave but, uh, guess the rest of Abominus might be easy to get in June.

    If anyone spots a movie legacy Yellow Power Ranger at TRU, can you grab it? It’s the one I’m missing

    Yeah, I saw the same thing at a Wal Mart in Peroria. Three Rippersnappers on the pegs, and absolutely nothing else from the wave. Weird.

    Are they in the TF section? I ask because I've seen stuff spread out all over the place at some of these stores. Thanks!

    They were in the Transformers section right in the middle of all the mess. I was really surprised I saw them at all after the way everyone has been seeing the whole case or nothing at all.

    wolfman, dude, there weren't 2.

    There were *10*. Then 9 after I got mine about noon today. Big thanks for the tip!

    BTW, the store is in good shape.

    Heads up Studio series is starting to show up at targets around the country if anyone is looking for them.

    Bloomington/Normal TRU doesn’t have Thundercracker. But they might soon, as there are tons of brown boxes on top of the shelves, which means that Thundercracker might be in one of those. Target has nothing to offer. Meijer still doesn’t have the SS leaders

    This isn’t Transformers related, but I hope that some of those boxes contain the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Toys by Mattel.

    The DLX SS are available at the meijers at flossmoor.

    Did SS thundercracker ever show up at the orland toys r us? I'd like to get him but with TRU going under and having limited ability to get to others in a timely fashion i don't think I'll be able to hunt him down.

    I haven’t seen any as of yet at orland Tru I don’t think they have even sold through their 100 dragon storms that have been clogging their tf section.

    Talked with a person at TRU in Bloomington/Normal about if they had Thundercracker in stock and showed them the product number. After checking they said no, which kinda sux

    Went to the Bloomington Walmart in the west side and they had a pallet full of stuff that was going to be put out, one of those said things being the SS Deluxes. So for any of you who are in the BloNo area, keep your eyes peeled as the rest of Studio Series shouldn’t be too far behind.

    @Oreobot have you found a Moonracer or Elita-1 recently? Those are the only ones from Wave 2 that I still need (I’m skipping Rodimus Unicronus).
